Can The Warriors Repeat?
Repeating in sports is the hardest thing to do. The Warriors have as good a chance as any team in recent memory. Not only do they return their entire core from last season, but they are all in the prime of their careers. Stephen Curry, 27, Klay Thompson, 25, and Draymond Green, 25, are all signed long term. It is hard to find a single weakness with Golden State.
Last year’s championship team was historically great. They won 67 games last year, one of only ten teams in history to win 67, and were an outstanding 39-2 at home. Their offense was incredible. They outscored opponents by an average of 10.1 points per game, per HoopsHabit.com.
Steve Kerr missing time due to back surgery could become an issue. As of now it is not known when he will be back. Regardless of the head coaching issue, the defending champs are the favorites.
There’s no doubt about it.
