The Golden State Warriors are a good team this year. But are they contenders?
Not until they replace Mark Jackson with someone who can, you know, coach. Instead of just being a motivator. Think how good they could be with an offensive system that is more than “have Curry run around like a maniac”. They do do some effective things with Klay Thompson coming around screens and stuff, so that’s cool. They should do more of that. And they’re already doing the “have Klay shoot any time he’s even a little open” thing. A winning strategy, for sure. Who needs layups when you can just shoot jumpers? Not Klay.
