Golden State Warriors best option: Sit put
Perspective is everything. The Golden State Warriors are only a few games back from holding the best record in the league. If a proposed trade does not overwhelmingly make them a better team — why would they do it?
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Run the gauntlet
Parity has been restored in the NBA. Even with Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson back on the floor — they’ll have to run a gauntlet to win the championship.
Team’s like the Utah Jazz, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Lakers, Memphis Grizzlies and Phoenix Suns all pose formidable challenges and that’s just the Western Conference.
An NBA Finals showdown with a familiar foe in Kevin Durant (along with Kyrie Irving and James Harden) or meeting the defending champs would be one hell of a battle for the Warriors.
But, if they are going into this battle, they are best off with the tools they have at hand. This roster gives them the best chance of pulling it together and winning the title. Barring some wizardry from the front office, no trade puts the Warriors in a better position than they already are in.
