The Golden State Warriors experienced a handful of blows with injuries of each their backcourt All-Stars, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, in addition to the departure of Kevin Durant in direction of Brooklyn in free agency. This is why they ended their season with an abysmal 15-50 NBA report which fails compared to their earlier NBA seasons.
But because the squad had some couple of months off to completely get well, whereas on the similar time including a 20PPG scorer in Andrew Wiggins and the quantity two decide within the NBA Draft, the Warriors are anticipated to wreak havoc within the NBA as soon as once more.
Granted it’s no secret that the Warriors will return as a top-tier team within the NBA, however the important thing query is — do the Warriors have what it takes to win the West and dethrone the Los Angeles Lakers led by LeBron James and Anthony Davis? NBA analyst Stephen A. Smith thinks they do.
“In terms of the direct question, ‘Who has the best shot to knock off the Lakers?’, it would be the Golden State Warriors. For a simple reason, it doesn’t need to be complicated like some people might try to make it.
“They have the greatest shooting backcourt known to man. There has never been anybody, backcourt in NBA history that can shoot like these brothers, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.”
This will not be even a rattling dialogue. The @WARRIORS have the perfect shot to Dethrone the @Lakers within the West.. and everyone knows why! pic.twitter.com/M7PdvgWsIf
