No. 3 Seed – Golden State Warriors (2012-13 – No. 6 Seed)
The Warriors’ rise hinges on their health, even if they lose Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry to free agency. With that said, the Warriors will be better next year.
The return of Brandon Rush and a fully healthy Andrew Bogut will essentially be two additions to the team. In 44 regular season games with Bogut, the Warriors won 25 of them.
Harrison Barnes’ sophomore season should really be considered a sophomore and a half season considering his spectacular performance in the playoffs, an experience which will undoubtedly benefit his play starting next season.
Additionally, Stephen Curry will continue his dominance from beyond the arc and develop into a better point guard overall.
