Three reasons why a rebuild could come sooner than expected for the Golden State Warriors.
After the Golden State Warriors won the 2022 NBA Championship, there was a strong belief that it was just the start of the second or third chapter of the team’s ongoing dynasty. How could you argue with that considering the team had just completed the feat of winning their fourth championship in eight years (with six NBA Finals appearances in that span)?
However, to start this season, the Warriors have not looked like a team that is going to keep a supposed dynasty going. In fact, for the majority of this season, they’ve looked more like a team that is running on fumes, not one that is catching fire.
The final stretch of the season will be huge for the future of the Golden State Warriors
Of course, that could all change during the push toward the playoffs. Maybe the Warriors do catch fire in the final couple of months of the season and make an NBA Finals push. What I find most interesting about this team is what happens if they don’t. What happens if they do lose in the first round of the playoffs, which many project them to do – they’re currently ninth in the West standings.
I’ll take my speculation a step further and suggest that if the Warriors do have a disappointing end to the season, they should seriously consider rebuilding the team. Let’s explore three reasons why a rebuild could come sooner than expected for the Warriors.
