The Warriors actually have a very good chance to build off of last year’s relatively surprising run to the championship rather than suffer from a hangover or letdown, which would be the best case scenario. To begin, there wasn’t a whole lot that went according to plan before the playoffs. During the regular season, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green only shared the court together for a combined total of 11 minutes.
In addition to that, big man James Wiseman was sidelined for the entirety of the season due to an injury. Now, the young trio consisting of Wiseman, Jonathan Kuminga, and Moses Moody can continue to develop, and the team has also added Donte DiVicenzo and JaMychal Green, who are both solid reserves. Include all of that in the process of evolution that is ongoing.
The worst-case scenario is that critics and skeptics continue to point to Golden State’s good fortune, specifically how the injury to Ja Morant and the early exit of the top-seeded Phoenix Suns from the playoffs allowed for a smoother path through the Western Conference.
The big three are one year older heading into this season, and who can predict what kind of injuries may be in store for this group that just can’t seem to avoid getting hurt? Curry had a miraculous season in 2015, especially in the NBA Finals, but will he be able to maintain that level of play in his age-35 campaign? It looks like the West will have an even heavier load this year.
The wager is on the Golden State Warriors to win more than 52.5 games.
The Warriors appear to have the ideal combination of young talent and seasoned veterans, according to the betting line. I believe that Steve Kerr will make the most of this one-of-a-kind circumstance by allowing the young core to keep the club’s energy and hunger up while monitoring the minutes his veterans play.
During an otherwise monotonous season, this will keep the vibe interesting and exciting. In addition, as the younger players improve, Kerr will have a tremendous amount of lineup flexibility with which to deal with a wide range of opponents. I have a strong inclination that there will be more than 52.5 victories, but I would not wager on the championship.
For the odds of 6-1 to have any value between now and the beginning of the playoffs, I believe that a lot of things have to go right.
