Steve Kerr and the Golden State Warriors won their third NBA Finals title in the last four years last season. It was a dominant showing, sweeping LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Heading into the offseason, the Warriors still wanted to get better and improve their roster if possible.
Not only did the Warriors improve their roster, they improved it dramatically.
DeMarcus Cousins did not receive the kind of interest that he was hoping for on the open free agency market. In response to the lack of interest, Cousins ended up taking a one-year deal to sign with the Warriors. Golden State now has a starting lineup that all played in the All-Star game last season.
Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, and Draymond Green will now team with one of the best centers in the entire NBA. Many NBA fans have already given up on the 2018-19 NBA season with the Warriors improving. Despite that fact, there are reasons to believe that Cousins could be a rough fit and cause the Warriors some issues.
Whether the Warriors have issues with Cousins or not, the move certainly makes them one of the most intriguing teams of the offseason.
All of that being said, what three things can be taken away from the 2018-19 NBA offseason for the Warriors?
