The Golden State Warriors are about to start a very important NBA season.
They are the reigning champions and are focused on winning it all again, earning back-to-back Finals victories yet again.
Golden State has done it before so there is a chance they could do it again.
That is certainly true because the squad has one of its strongest cores in years.

Of course, a basketball team consists of five players so who will be the fifth man making them so competitive?
Just a couple of weeks ago, everyone agreed that the fifth player would be Draymond Green but now people aren’t so sure.
A Strong Four
For years now, Green has been a pivotal part of the team’s success.
Not only that, but he has also fostered team chemistry that was second to none throughout the league – the Warriors really did feel like a brotherhood that couldn’t be broken apart.
Ironically, it was Green himself who threw that all into chaos when he chose to punch Poole during a practice session a couple of weeks ago.
Now fans have noticed the Warriors’ shift away from Green despite the fact that he’s still part of the team.
He will certainly play a lot for the Warriors in the new season but there are more than a few people assuming this will be his last year with Golden State.
Green will get plenty of time on the floor and will likely be the fifth guy to go along with this big four.
But he probably won’t be such an important part of the team’s DNA and culture.
