The Golden State Warriors have struggled as of the last few weeks, but still a top-four team in a competitive Western Conference, there’s no denying they’ll have their eyes set on another NBA Finals appearance.
That’s the goal for Golden State, and as it will ring true with many other teams, if that level isn’t reached, the season will be dubbed a failure.
The Golden State Warriors have one of the highest ceilings of any team in the NBA, yet at the same time, their floor has proven to be quite low.
The Warriors have a little extra reasoning why it would be especially disappointing if they didn’t manage a Finals berth, and it really has to go with having their Big 3 healthy for the first time since 2019.
Following their Finals loss down Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson in 2019, the Warriors haven’t had the same firepower they do now. Along with several key young role players, the Warriors have opted to forego playing strictly for the now, and it’s going to be interesting if it pays off.
With Jonathan Kuminga, Jordan Poole and Moses Moody set to have impactful roles, Golden State is entering the next phase of its dynasty. At the heart of their roster is still the Big 3, all still their respective primes.
With that in mind, let’s dive into why the Warriors have what it takes to make the NBA Finals.
