The Golden State Warriors are off to a rough start to the season, only winning three games of their opening ten games. This start has left many fans frustrated, especially following a long road trip where they failed to find a rhythm going 0-5.

Upside for Warriors fans — it’s only been an eighth of the season and there is still a long road yet ahead. However, there have been a few things holding the Warriors back that they simply need to correct.

The Golden State Warriors have a plethora of issues that need to be addressed if they wish to turn things around quickly.

To start the major negatives, Klay Thompson has only had one really good game where he shot a decent percentage from the floor and from three. Put simply, he needs to either take less shots, or start making them — this all starts with the shot quality that he’s currently getting.

James Wiseman has left a lot of fans disappointed, failing to live up to expectations. Although, there are some promising signs when he shares the floor with Stephen Curry and Draymond Green.

The former number two overall pick has been an enigma to start the season —  he’s just not contributing to winning basketball just yet, but you can see the talent is there if Golden State can harness it effectively.

The rotations have definitely been messy to start the season, but head coach Steve Kerr has acknowledged that issue and implied that changes are on there way as the Warriors return home.

The only other major issue that may be harder to fix is the lack of leadership off the bench. With Gary Payton II, Otto Porter Jr and Juan Toscano-Anderson all departing in the offseason, the defensive intensity and ability to ‘lock in’ simply isn’t there at present.

There are a lot of positives, like Andrew Wiggins and Stephen Curry’s elite level of play, but let’s delve further into what the Warriors need to do to regain their standing in the Western Conference.
