Golden State Warriors Challenging Old, Tired Assumptions About 3-Ball Chucking

bleacherreport.com — OAKLAND-Time to update that old aphorism, "Live By The Three, Die By The Three." Let's be clear: No team is going to win a championship strictly shooting from long range, and no team is going to win a championship with a one-dimensional offense of any kind.

With Attitude, Clutch Play, Warriors' Bench Showing It Takes Backseat to None

bleacherreport.com — Among the many surpluses this year's Golden State Warriors enjoy that last year's did not-not one but two All-Stars, not one but two shot-blocking centers, not one but two head coaches-it's rarely noted that they damn near have not one but two starting lineups.
