Key Additions: Andre Iguodala, Marreese Speights, Toney Douglas, and Jermaine O'Neal
Key Departures: Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry
Last year Golden State placed itself among the elite young teams of the league and their off season looks to have steadily kept them there. Last year Septhen Curry emerged as a premier scorer and the rest of this very youthful team showed that they are a force to be reckoned with in the west.
As far as this upcoming season outlook the Warriors should be better than ever. Last season Andrew Bogut was limited in returning from micro fracture surgery on his ankle but looked great in their playoff run and as this is a contract year will be doing his best to stay healthy and prove that he is a vital piece. Along with Bogut David Lee will be looking to cement himself as a all-star caliber player just like last year. These two bigs, if healthy, and this is the best season to expect them to be, will anchor the back line of a defense which just got one of the best defenders on the planet in Andre Iguodala.
This Warriors team looks like it could be a masterpiece of floor spacing and perimeter shooting while still having the ability to out rebound teams and still score in the paint. Harrison Barnes looked to be an emerging star last year when he got on the floor showing fantastic shooting touch and the ability to get to the rim and finish hard as well as lock down on defense. Draymond Green is another fantastic young piece on this team who not only can rebound on the wing and bang inside if necessary but also knock down open outside looks.With Iguodala to help on defense, so much young talent, and the possibly transcendent star Curry is looking to become the Warriors are headed for another great year.
