The defending champs are the best team in the NBA. There is no one that is remotely close to them. They have the best defensive player in the league, the best shooter in history, another dead eye shooter, and one of the most talented scorers in NBA history. The Warriors also have one of the best benches in the NBA. There is not much more to say. Just watch the film in this match up against the Celtics
PG: Stephen Curry
SG: Klay Thompson
SF: Kevin Durant
PF: Draymond Green
C: Zaza Pachulia
6th Man: Andre Igoudala
Stephen Curry. The name is an icon already as he has changed the game from a tough, gritty contest to a three-point contest. Curry is the best PG in the game and can literally shoot anywhere. His back up is Shaun Livingston. Livingston has been a steady backup for years with good mid range. Curry's running mate in the back court is Klay Thompson. Thompson is one of the greatest shooters along with Curry, but the difference is that he can guard anyone. Thompson takes all of Curry's hard assignments. Without him it would be interesting to see how they would change their defense.
Kevin Durant and LeBron James fight for the title of best player in the league. Durant is deadly on offense as he can do every single thing on offense and his length propels him to a very good defender as well. The backup is sixth man of the year candidate Andre Igoudala. Iggy has a very strong career resume with winning the Finals MVP in 2015. Draymond Green is a great player as he is the jack of all trades and specializes in defense. The reigning defense player of the year has been an aggressive player once again.
The center is Zaza. He is a dirty piece of trash but he is gritty. Javale McGee is the backup along with rookie Jordan Bell. McGee is a big player and rebounds with the best of them. Bell, however, is a complete stud and he can hustle and I could very well see him being and x-factor in the playoffs. Watch out as the Warriors are most likely the favorite to repeat.
