It’s a long NBA season, and while it’s only one month old, the Golden State Warriors have already compiled 10 wins. If they average eight more wins a month, they will have reached that all important 50-win mark, which most of the time means postseason and a possible playoff run to a title.
Achieving eight wins in a month is a challenging task because the NBA teams are comprised of the best in the world. It doesn’t matter where a certain team sits in the standings, a maximum effort is needed in every game to attain success, which the current decade’s Warriors are all about – playing all out.
With their talent, depth, heart, coaching and knowledgable and enthusiastic ownership, the Warriors are working toward wonderful, and if they manage to average 10 wins a month, they’ll join the NBA’s elite-team club. Actually, they’re already close to joining.
The Warriors are a team that continues to hone the aggressive, exciting, defensive-minded, offensively productive play of their predominately youthful unit of unselfish, smart and talented players.
After last season’s regular season finish and postseason playoff run, I said in my optimistic approach that the squad reminded me of the 1975 champion Warriors in many ways and that there could be a magical link, and I stand by my statement even more this year, especially now having all-stars Andre Iguodala and Jermaine O’Neil on board.
