The return of Klay Thompson after 941 days away from the courts has triggered the optimism of the Golden State Warriors. More than two years later, the team shines with its Big Three intact, so that within the organization they remain expectant about the chances of success in the playoffs.
The owner of the Warriors, Joe Lacob, could not hide his enthusiasm and assured that he sees the team in condition to fight again for the ring. “We put all the pieces back together and we had a good offseason where we recruited some young people who have not yet had a chance to play and who really like them,” Lacob said in a few words collected by journalist Chris Haynes. We’ll see where it takes us. I’m not assuming anything at the moment, but we certainly have a lot of talent, a very good team that will take shape as we go through this year. “
Indeed, Steve Kerr’s men have their magic trident performing at a high level, but they also present important values with a long journey ahead such as Andrew Wiggins, James Wiseman, Jordan Poole, Jonathan Kuminga or Moses Moody. Thus, Lacob added that he expects the Warriors to star in a decade similar to the last, in which they conquered three rings after reaching five NBA Finals.
“Our goal is to be great throughout this decade. We had a great last decade and our goal is to prepare and position ourselves for another great decade, ”concluded the owner.
