Over the years, far too many people have assumed that the Golden State Warriors are solely Steph Curry’s team.
They have said that the team lives and die based on how well Curry is doing and that he’s the key to their great success.
While it is true that Curry is a phenomenal, once-in-a-lifetime talent, he’s not the only part of the team.
There are many great guys who play their heart out alongside him every night.
And there is also the Warriors’ great bench.
It's pretty absurd that the Warriors bench is going to be:
That's like a good start for a rebuilding team and it's the bench for the champs.

That bench was good all season and was a huge part of the team’s Finals championship but it’s about to get even better.
These guys will be the team’s bench players, meaning they typically will not start any games.
That’s an awful lot of talent for a bench and shows why the Warriors are just so incredible.
A number of these players could be starters for other teams, especially rebuilding teams flying right below the radar.
The fact that the Warriors get to call on these guys when they need them is fantastic for the team’s future.
Many of them have already proven what they’re worth.
Poole, for example, had a breakout season and is now a fan favorite among the Warriors faithful.
Kuminga has also left an impression with the fans and has become an important part of the team’s frontcourt.
Wiseman is about to return to the league after a year away due to injury and he could have a hugely successful season too.
There are a lot of options – and a lot of talent – on the Warriors’ bench.
Fans are ready to see these guys shine.
