The Golden State Warriors finished the year as the 3rd seed in the Western Conference, and there's no question that they are a team that could end up winning the NBA title. Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson have already won a title together in 2015, and this time, they have some other offensive weapons such as Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole.
While the Golden State Warriors have a fair amount of talent on the team, the team has seldom been fully healthy. Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson have all missed extended time with injuries this season.
Due to the lack of continuity with this Warriors team, some people have suggested that the Golden State Warriors will need some time to "learn" how to play together with a fully healthy lineup.
However, coach Mike Malone has recently cast doubt on the idea, claiming that the Warriors "have a lot of experience" playing together. It is true that the original Warriors' big 3 have a lot of experience and have been through many playoff runs together, and it shouldn't take them too much time to get back in the swing of things.
Learning on the fly, my a**. Those guys have a lot of experience together. So sell that iceberg to somebody else.
Stephen Curry will be returning from injury against the Denver Nuggets, and the Golden State Warriors will be the favorite in the series if he is fully healthy. However, the Denver Nuggets will still be a tough opponent, as 2020-21 MVP Nikola Jokic is leading their team. Steve Kerr has previously spoken highly of the big man and claimed that he should be this year's MVP as well.
Hopefully, we see a good series between the Denver Nuggets and the Golden State Warriors. There is no doubt that both teams play exciting brands of basketball and it'll be interesting to see who comes out on top.
