Are the Golden State Warriors destined for another Championship?

This offseason has been full of good and bad surprises. For the Golden State Warriors, it’s been a busy offseason as they embark on another championship run.

Though, there was a chance that he would leave. The core is still in effect after Draymond Green signed a new four-year deal. So for now that window could still be open, but how long do the Warriors have?

Age could be a factor

The Golden State Warriors will be looking to win their fifth championship in 11 seasons. Though, there might be one problem…the roster isn’t as young as it used to be. Stephen Curry is headed into his 15th season at the age of 35. While Klay Thompson is coming off of his third best season, he’ll be 33 when the season starts. Based off what we saw last season, it doesn’t appear that Green is as good as he used to be. He’ll also be 33 when the season starts in September/October.

The biggest offseason move for the Warriors was trading for Chris Paul, but he just turned 38. So, the question that remains, is if age will hinder another title run.

“The biggest thing is, everybody comes to camp with the right mindset of just trying to win,” Curry told Ron Kroichick of the San Francisco Chronicle. “We’ve got to talk it, live it out and understand the time frame of our careers. Nobody’s got time to waste in terms of any energy other than trying to win.”

It’s unknown if any other team will feature a roster older than what the Warriors might. However, there’s just one thing. This is a roster that appears to fit well together. Sure, we’ve never seen Paul in a Steve Kerr system but do we really need to to know that he’ll find his niche with the Warriors. Paul is a 12-time All-Star and a leader in the NBA for a reason.

There’s three big thing for Kerr heading into the 2023-24 season: Consistency. Predictability. Knowing what to expect from each player.

Gary Payton II may be an important factor for the next Golden State Warriors championship run. The 30-year-old has shown time and time again how comfortable he is in Golden State, as opposed to elsewhere.

“With Gary, we know what he does,” Kerr said. “When he’s in the game, you have a pretty good idea of what he’s doing. We know Gary. We know what he does. We saw it last year.”

Other Additions:

Adding Paul is not the only addition, the Warriors have made this offseason. The new general manager, Mike Dunleavy Jr., has been fairly busy. The Warriors added Dario Saric, who projects as perfect fit with Golden State. As well as Cory Joseph, who produces well as a third point guard.

No to mention, that the Warriors still have Jonathan Kuminga, who took some strides last year, and Andrew Wiggins, who should be back healthy after a year of uncertainty. As well as, Kevon Looney, who just gets his job done.

When he took over as the GM, Dunleavy had talked with the coaches and veteran players to see where the roster needs help. The biggest thing that was agreed upon was that the roster was too young and inexperienced outside of the starters. The combination of Curry, Thompson, Wiggins, Green and Looney represented the most efficient starting lineup in the NBA last season. So, the shortcomings came from elsewhere. More specifically from the bench.

Dunleavy wasted no time getting the roster for the Golden State Warriors back to a championship level. Within the first three days of the offseason, he had already made the first move. A draft-day deal that sent Jordan Poole to the Washington Wizards. The deal that netted them Paul.

With just that one move, the Warriors had become older, slower and smarter. The Warriors led the league in turnovers a season ago and Poole was the biggest culprit. The new roster is built differently to avoid that, both Paul and Joseph are diligent ball-handlers and they’ll be able to stabilize the inefficiency brought by Kuminga and Moses Moody.

This is a roster that Kerr could only have dreamed of having. Let alone, any coach would love this roster. Now, its a reality for the Warriors.

The Warriors have had a remarkably successful run with the trio of Curry, Thompson and Green. They’ve won four championships in nine years and it appears there may be a few seasons left before time runs out on their legendary careers.

Once again, some odds may be against the Warriors like they were during the 2021-22 season. However, with this roster it appears they may be destined for at least one more championship.
