3. Golden State Warriors
The Warriors’ bench is possibly the most exciting out of all the top five.
Led by veterans Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry, the Warriors’ bench played an inspiring brand of basketball. The two rookies, Draymond Green and Festus Ezeli, played smart defense and hustled as hard as anybody in the league. This combination of veteran leadership and youthful vigor contributed greatly to a playoff berth and visit to the second round.
Even with the impending return of Brandon Rush, the Warriors are probably looking to bolster their bench. Lingering questions about the return of Jack or Landry and the knee surgery to Ezeli could hurt the Warriors’ depth next season.
Even if the Warriors’ bench is not as strong next season, at least it will still be the most entertaining
