The Golden State Warriors, with two-time MVP Stephen Curry back in the lineup, are going to be able to contend for an NBA Championship. For Curry, it would be the fourth of his career, and he’s confident in the Dubs’ ability to get it done.
While most NBA fans might not share that confidence, if you look at how the Warriors started the season, at the top of the league for most of the first few months, they have shown that their peak is the best team in the league.
Stephen Curry has been the catalyst for the Warriors’ offense, and once he returns, they’ll be able to contend for a championship, he’s confident in that.
"“We have the utmost confidence in who we are, what we do, especially when the playoffs come around. That’s what we’re banking on. That’s the confidence we have to have coming into next weekend,” Curry said on 95.7 The Game’s “Steiny & Guru” via NBC Sports’ Tristi Rodriguez."
There’s good reason for Curry to be confident as well. After all, he is the best shooter to ever play the game. Not just that, but he’ll be joined by arguably the best defender of all time and also another one of the best shooters ever.
Couple that with a plethora of role players that know their place in the rotation and a rising star in Jordan Poole, and you have a team that should be able to contend with the best of the best. Now, they do still have some small flaws, mainly their size.
The Warriors do not start a player that stands over 6-foot-9. That could limit their ability to rebound when facing teams like Phoenix or Utah.
Nonetheless, with Green, who plays far bigger than his 6-foot-6 frame, in the frontcourt, Golden State should be fine in that regard. The Dubs just have to perfect their consistency now, and they should be able to defeat any team in either conference in a 7-game series.
At the end of the day, if Curry is confident in Golden State’s ability to contend, you should be as well.
