Everyone found a reason to discredit the Warriors NBA Finals championship last year against league darling Lebron James.
After Golden State's 23-0 start this year, there is no way anyone can say their run last year was a fluke. The Warriors are off to a historically strong start to the season. Below are three reasons they may be the one of the best teams in NBA history.
1. Forgotten Thompson has missed only one game
Klay Thompson's numbers are down this year, but his presence alone matters greatly. This was noticeable when the Warriors almost dropped a home game to the visiting Brooklyn Nets.
Thompson is the best shooting guard in the league not named James Harden. One of the main reasons Curry is dominating is because opposing backcourt players are locked in tightly on Thompson.
2. Draymond Green is an All-Star
Draymond Green's has emerged as an all-star caliber player this year posting a chunky statline of : 13.3 points, 8.5 rebounds, 7.2 assists, 1.4 blocks, 38.8 percent from 3-point range. He has always been an ace defensive player, but now he's progressing quickly on the offensive end.
3. Ball movement beats slumps
The Warriors are shooting a volcanic 43.7 percent from 3 this season.What has helped them elude slumps so far is their superior ball movement. They make it a goal to get 30 assists in each game; while coming up short with an average of 28.9, they still have managed to lead the league in assists per possession.
It's VERY hard to guard a team that has five players that can knock down the three and attack you off the dribble with ease.
