After making four straight trips to the NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors came back down to earth this past season, missing out on the playoffs for the first time since the 2011-2012 season.

But with Steph and Klay set to return to action, it's considered an inevitability that they'll be back on top of the basketball world in no time.

“I’m very confident that they’ll return to contention quickly," said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver in a chat with Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle. "I look at the quality of their management. Of course, the quality of the players that are currently on their roster. I have no reason to believe they won’t be back as a top-tier team in the NBA.”

“There’s also no question that continuity helps build fans nationally and internationally, for that matter. I think fans are drawn to familiar faces, especially when it comes to playoff competition.”

When healthy, we know what the Curry/Klay backcourt is capable of. When it comes to scoring and outside shooting, there aren't many players in basketball history who can compare to those two.

Plug them alongside a motivated Draymond Green and a 25-year-old Andrew Wiggins, and it's clear the Dubs have a recipe for success.

This time around, however, nobody will be surprised by their surge. Adam Silver and the rest of the NBA is already on notice.
