The Golden State Warriors have been one of the most exciting teams in the NBA over the past two seasons, and they are set up to have another successful season. They haven’t made any notable changes to their roster, but they did bring in a brand new head coach after firing Mark Jackson.Steve Kerr is entering his first season as an NBA head coach, and it will be a very interesting rookie year leading the way for Golden State this season.
While a change of head coach usually means that the previous coach wasn’t doing a good job, that is simply not the case with Jackson. He had led his team to the playoffs two straight seasons, and had them playing better basketball than they were expected to play.
There are some rumors that he was fired because other players felt like he was showing too much favoritism towards star point guard Stephen Curry, but that was something that was not confirmed by the team.
It’s going to be a very interesting season for the Warriors this year, but they are expected to be a playoff contender once again. They still have their core of Curry, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, David Lee, and Andrew Bogut, but they will have to find more production off of their bench in order to make a serious run in the playoffs.
There is still the potential that they could make a move prior to the season or before the deadline, but they don’t appear to be in a major hurry to do so.
What five bold predictions can be made about the 2014-15 Warriors?
