Head coach Steve Kerr talks strategy with superstar Stephen Curry

At this point, can the Warriors even stop the Warriors?

The Golden State Warriors are off to a strong start to the 2014-15 basketball season with a record of 16-2, giving them the best record in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

Although it’s very early in the season, Warriors are one of the elite teams in the NBA due to their depth, chemistry, and of course, their superstar Stephen Curry.

The Warriors have one of the deepest benches in the league by far. Head coach Steve Kerr’s decision to move Harrison Barnes to the starting lineup and putting Andre Iguodala as the sixth man was a very smart move giving 30 year-old veteran Iguodala a break and enhancing the bench.

Golden State made a solid off-season move in picking up 6 foot 7 inch backup point guard Shaun Livingston, giving a spark off the bench when Curry needs a break.

Another solid off-season move was acquiring veteran Leandro Barbosa giving the playoff experience the Warriors need.

Let’s not forget to mention Marreese Speights, the unsung hero. Big Mo has averaged 12.4 points and 4.9 rebounds per game off the bench. One thing I would critique Marc Jackson on, even though he was a very good coach, was the lack of utilizing Speighits.

He averaged 12.4 minutes last season, and is now averaging 15.8 minutes. The results have shown the more you put in Mo, the more buckets you going to score.

Overall, the Warriors starting lineup is solid.: super-star Stephen Curry with his fellow splash brother Klay Thompson, young and athletic full of potential Harrison Barnes, dynamic Drayomond Green, and the defensive monster Andrew Bogut.

With star David Lee out with a hamstring injury, he looks to return to the lineup next week.

With Curry leading the way, this team is tough to beat. I know it’s early in the season, but he is putting up MVP numbers. Curry is averaging 23 points, 5 rebounds, 7.8 assists, and 2 steals.

If the Warriors keep this up, I can’t see any reason why they cannot come out of the Western conference and compete with the already weak Eastern conference for the title.
