Maintain their cohesiveness

OK, so this one isn’t really something to improve on, but I’m going with it anyways.

Jarrett Jack said it best. After falling to the Spurs in Game 6, Jack sat at his locker room, teary eyed and told the reporters about the pride he had wearing his Warriors uniform. It was evident when he was the last one left on the court, unwilling to leave and moving his team to return for one last goodbye. Whether being inspiring (David Lee), hard working (Draymond/Festus) or supportive (Kent Bazemore), the Warriors are a shining example of a team that “plays for each other.”

Reminiscent of a championship team just the next city over, the Warriors, according to Jack, are one of the few teams that have become a family. We, as viewers, often forget that players are technically co-workers working in a ruthless business that can see them transplanted cross country at the push of a button. The Warriors have a special bond, and magic about the team that is a winning formula.

Seriously. Just ask the team on the other side of the Bay.
