2. Bad Chemistry
The Golden State Warriors have always been one of the best passing teams in basketball. The franchise superstar, Stephen Curry, has continued to embrace a selfless style of play that has benefited the entire roster for years.
Yet, all of the chemistry that had been built up between Curry and his squad will be nonexistent this season. Aside from Draymond Green, Curry has barely played with anyone on the current roster. With new faces like Andrew Wiggins, James Wiseman, Brad Wanamaker, Kent Bazemore and Kelly Oubre Jr. set to play key minutes – it will take some time to make things click.
It doesn’t help that the team will have less time than normal to train together. The offseason has been accelerated faster than ever before and the Warriors only have a few weeks to prepare for their season opener.
With young and inexperienced players such as Eric Paschall, Jordan Poole and Wiseman being expected to produce right away, it’s possible there will be some growing pains and early frustrations for the Warriors. They must weather this storm and work hard to build chemistry together as quickly as possible.
