Both Warrior fans and Kobe Bryant know the Golden State Warriors have been on another level over the last few seasons, but what makes them so dynamic?

Well, if you ask the former superstar guard, it’s the Golden State Warriors’ playstyle that sets them apart from the rest of NBA. Kobe Bryant, per The Athletic’s Frank Isola, said they play with ‘intent,’ one of the numerous compliments Bryant gave the Dubs.

"“A lot of teams play accidental basketball where they just move the ball around, then they get a shot and take it. Golden State plays with purpose. They know how to exploit defenses. They have experience. (Kevin) Durant is a game-changer; his size and ability to get a bucket at the end of the shot clock."

Bryant, who retired a few years ago, has stayed involved with the league and, more specifically, his Lakers. From saying the team should trade all the young stars for Davis to giving advice to the King himself, Bryant has commented on just about everything LA.

However, this is one of the only times that the 18-time All-Star commented on the back-to-back defending champs. Like you would’ve expected, most of the words he spoke regarding the Dubs dynasty were positive.

What Bryant did add is that other teams are learning to manipulate different defensive schemes like the Dubs have been for years. He asserts that the Celtics and Rockets are both inching closer and closer to the Warriors, who have been placed on a pedastol for the last several years.

This year, unlike the last few, may worry Warrior fans more than any of the past four. Why?

Well, because it might be finally time for fatigue to set in. So far, the Dubs have looked dominant yet have been awful against teams like Houston, recording just a 1-3 record against arguably their biggest rival. They’ve played either almost 100 or over 100 games in each of their last four seasons.

This upcoming offseason may also worry fans as both Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant are up for new contracts. Will Durant continue to take a paycut when he’s clearly worth max-contract money?

Next. Who would the Warriors select with the No.1 Draft pick?. dark

Let’s just say the next few months will be telling for the Warriors.
