Stephen Curry – Point Guard (GSW)
Curry had a break out year for the Golden State Warriors last regular season averaging twenty three points, seven assists and four rebounds in twenty one minutes per game. Interestingly enough, Curry increased his production in the post season in assists and points. Stephen Curry is a natural born shooter with the ability to drive to the basket and finish at the rim. This season will be a real test for Stephen Curry to build from last years stellar performance against the San Antonio Spurs and lead his warriors to a second post season appearance in a row.
Klay Thompson – Shooting Guard (GSW)
With just two years of experience in the league, the twenty three year old shooting guard for the Golden State Warriors, Klay Thompson shot forty percent from the three point line last season and averaged seventeen points, with four rebounds and two assists per game in just thirteen minutes of action. Thompson is a promising young shooting guard who has the ability to deliver points on a consistent bases for his high powered Golden State Warriors offense.
Andre Iguodala – Shooting Guard/Small Forward (GSW)
For some reason, the Golden State Warriors trade for Andre Iguodala was one of the less talked about acquisitions during the off season, probably because of all the whirlwind hype surrounding the Dwight Howard free agency show. Iguodala is a wildly athletic perimeter player and a hard nosed defensive on ball stopper. He has averaged fifteen points, five assists and six rebounds per game during his career. What Andre brings to the Golden State Warriors is nine years of NBA experience, which is something the Warriors are in a desperate need of as the teams lack of maturity was put on full blast losing to a much more experienced San Antonio Spurs team 4-2 in the western conference semi finals.
David Lee – Power Forward (GSW)
Perhaps, if David Lee were not injured for the post season series against the San Antonio Spurs things may have gone a bit differently. Lee averaged a double double last regular season with the Golden State Warriors throwing in nineteen points and grabbing eleven rebounds per game in twenty minutes on the court. His six foot nine inch, two hundred and forty pound physique makes him a dominate rebounder but his smooth outside jumper makes him an important offensive weapon for the Warriors.
Andrew Bogut – Center (GSW)
On his career, Bogut has averaged twelve points, nine rebounds and two blocked shots per game. However, the seven foot, two hundred and sixty pound center has only played in one hundred and nine NBA games in the past three seasons due to nagging injuries. The great thing about Bogut is you know exactly what type of dominating performance you will get from him each night as long as he is able to stay healthy on a consistent enough basis.
