Though they didn’t seem to notice in Washington, D. C., Cleveland or Portland, the debate about which team had the best backcourt ended early in training camp when Jerry West said it is clearly the Warriors’ duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
“It’s nice to have two young guys like that in a backcourt that you don’t have to ever change for a long time,” said West, a member of the Warriors’ executive board.

Ballmer, the former Microsoft CEO, spent a record $2billion to buy the team and has vowed to give Rivers and his players whatever they need to win a championship.
If the Clippers don’t at least advance to the Western Conference finals for the first time in franchise history, their season will be considered a disappointment.
GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS
The starting lineup might be as good as any in the NBA, the bench should be better, and if they can stay healthy — a big if the past two years, especially with Bogut — the Warriors should be among the favorites in the Western Conference.

If Bryant is a healthy semblance of his old self, the Lakers have a chance to contend for a postseason berth.
If not, they’ll almost certainly miss the playoffs in consecutive seasons for the first time since 1976.
Sacramento also is in a difficult division and a deep conference, so even if they improve, the Kings will likely end up in the same spot they’ve finished the last eight seasons: in the draft lottery.
According to a number of experts, the Warriors will be running elements of the triangle, which gets attributed to the Bulls or the Lakers.

With associate head coach Alvin Gentry leading the installation, Kerr has introduced an offense that starts with the final three steps of the defense.
After securing the defensive rebound, the Warriors are expected to have a three-step lead in transition offense for easy baskets.
Most often, that play runs through one of their skilled passing big men on the elbow, using center Andrew Bogut or David Lee as initiators and sharpshooters Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson run off screens or make cuts.
Last season, the Warriors averaged the least passes per possession and were among the league leaders in turnovers.
