The Warriors are back! Golden State has taken the league by storm, by returning to their old selves. They lead the league with a 12-2 record and of course Stephen Curry may be the league’s MVP yet again.
Yes, the Warriors won back to back championships in 2017 & 2018, but that was with Kevin Durant.
This year’s Warriors reminds us of their 2015 title run. Their 2015 title run which was one like no other. The “Splash Brothers” were created with Curry & Klay, with Draymond as their third option. Thus, the “Big Three” emerged.
This year, Curry is unstoppable averaging 28.7 ppg, 6.6 ast and shooting 40% from 3-point range. He currently leads the league in scoring.
The scariest part of the Warriors this season is Klay Thompson has yet to play a game. His timetable for return is still questionable after tearing his ACL back in 2019.”I’ve always thought the Warriors were good for the league overall,” a Western conference executive said. “They play a fun style, they push boundaries and raise the competitive level for everyone, especially with them being more their 2016 version.”
Not only is Curry doing his part as the leader of the team, but the Warriors’ bench is averaging 37.3 points per game taking a lot of pressure off Curry. The bench is currently fifth in the league in scoring.
With only 14 games played so far, the Warriors are still the heavy favorites to win it all.
