Golden State Warriors Preseason Report 2014 posted by Warriors Fan
Golden State Warriors improved their score by winning 51 games in 2013-14, which is four more wins compared to the last season. During the playoffs, they were seeded sixth, but Los Angeles Clippers stopped them from reaching the finals. The Warriors faced many coaching and management issues, which proved quite chaotic for the team. Even with these problems, the team performed quite well and they were able to extend seven games to the Clippers in the playoffs opening round.
2014-2015 looks promising for Golden State Warriors with the hiring of new coach Steve Herr. However, Kerr is still not tested, and the big change could all be hype. Secondly, the best player of the team, Stephen Curry liked the former coach Mark Jackson, and the question remains whether Curry will be able to accept Kerr.
In the offseason, the Warriors tried to bring in Kevin Love, but the trade did not go through, as the management was not willing to trade Klay Thompson. The team had not picks during the draft, and hence the team remains almost the same as last season. However, certain depth was added for guard by acquiring Brandon Rush and Sean Livingston. Since the Timberwolves have a better chance of acquiring Love, the Warriors will have to settle with David Lee in PF. At center, there will be Andrew Bogut and Lee, who are tough and can provide rebounds. At the backcourt, there will be Andre Iguodala who is a defensive specialist, Curry, and Thompson.
Golden State Warriors are in a good position to do much better this season, and experts expect to see them in the playoffs second round. However, reaching the finals would be a stretch, even if they somehow manage to acquire Love. Since, Steve Kerr, the head coach is a rookie, who has not had any experience in NBA finals; the warriors can maximum reach the semis.Continue reading "Golden State Warriors Preseason Report 2014"
