Golden State has been on the top of the NBA three times in the last five years. But the outlook for the new season is on the dark side. This summer Kevin Durant (Brooklyn Nets) and DeMarcus Cousins (LA Lakers) left the team, and team shooter Klay Thomspon suffered a long-term injury.
However, Green told CNBC that "Our team has Stephen Curry, D'angelo Russell, Willie Cauley-Stein and so on." "All teams will want to avoid the Golden State in the playoffs."
Curry is one of the best players in the league, and Russell is an all-star guard. Defensiveness is considered to be a disadvantage, but he is able to attack quickly and has excellent 3-point shots. Willie Cauley-Stein played 81 regular league games in the Sacramento Kings last season with an average of 11.9 points, 8.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists.
Golden State is also a team with a huge playoff experience. This is the best of the 30 NBA teams. Golden State has entered the NBA Finals every season for the past five years and won the Championship three times.
Of course, green's performance also seems important. Although he suffered a slump early in the season, his play was alive after the playoffs. He scored an average of 13.3 points, 10.1 rebounds and 8.5 assists in 22 playoffs last season. As Thompson misses the new season, he needs to show his performance from the very beginning.
