Kawhi Leonard and LeBron James are on every NBA team’s wish list this summer, for one reason only…to beat the Golden State Warriors

The parade is over and the champagne bottles are empty. The Golden State Warriors proved once again they are the best NBA team by defeating the Cleveland Cavs in four games. The Warriors are showing they are able to win with great offense overcoming great defense.

Kawhi Leonard and LeBron James are rumored to go almost every NBA team this summer. NBA executives believe these are two of the players who will be part of the next team to beat the Warriors. 

When Golden State’s offense is in sync, they seem unbeatable. As this year’s team showed, they can also look bad and still win. What makes the Warriors offense so good? There are several factors that can be looked at when talking about the Warriors offensive dominance.

The video below was narrated by Kobe Bryant and shows a glimpse of what the Warriors look like when their offense is working on all cylinders.

The ability to have great offensive players is always important. The Warriors have four All-stars who start on the team. The 4-headed monster of Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green can all score the ball in bunches.

The unique characteristics is they are four very different players who can score different ways. What each player contributes is what helps makes the offense special. They compliment each other perfectly.

The Warriors have players every team needs to be great on offense. Each player makes the defense work in different ways. When teams try to defend the Golden State throughout the game there will be missed assignments and points scored

Steph Curry is a former MVP and is arguably the most electrifying shooter in the NBA. He seems to be in range once he crosses half court. Defenses must really keep an eye on him wherever Curry is on the court.

Curry impacts the game because the defense is forced to guard him all over the Warriors’ offensive end. Creating space is important for an offense to operate in the half court. If a player needs to be defended at half court then the rest of the team has more room to run the offense.

The space creating Curry also moves without the ball as well anybody else on the NBA. His off the ball movement causes also makes him tough to guard. The more Curry moves the more the opportunity the defense has to lose sight of him.

The Finals MVP, Kevin Durant, is the size of a center but plays like a guard. He creates a mismatch for any team trying to defend him. He has the ability to post up smaller players and take bigger players off the dribble.

Durant also has one of the better mid-range games in the NBA. He has the ability to score at the rim, from three, and everywhere in between. Mid-range shots come open for Durant because Curry is able to draw the defense out further.

Sharp shooting Klay Thompson is another problem for NBA defenses. He does a great of job of setting up himself to come off screens to get open three-point attempts. When defenders guard against the outside shot, Thompson is able to get to the basket off the dribble.

Thompson is a typical NBA shooting guard. He gets many of his points within the offense. Curry and Durant are the two go to scorers on the Warriors. Curry will take the unbelievable shot and Durant will take on any mismatch to score. Thompson has the ability to step up when the other two are guarded to make outside shots.

On every great team there is a player who plays a role of box score filler. Draymond Green is that person on the Warriors. He is not the player who is going to score 20 points every game. Green is the player who is going to put the ball in the hands of the other Warriors who are going to score.

He is also a player that takes advantage of defenses trying to stop Curry, Durant, and Thompson. Green does a great job of taking what the defense gives him. When the defense over helps on another Warrior, Green is able to slip a screen and get an easy wide open basket.

Even though the Warriors have four great players to put up great offensive numbers they still must have great chemistry to be successful. The four are able to blend of their talents together in order to cause havoc on NBA defenses.
