Struggling through their first 26 games of the season, the Golden State Warriors’ 13-13 record may mean it’s time to re-evaluate the flawed roster Bob Myers assembled for the defense of the franchise’s 2022 championship title.
The loss of Otto Porter Jr, Gary Payton II and Juan Toscano-Anderson left a vital part of the Warriors’ championship identity in question. Myers signed JaMychal Green and Donte DiVincenzo to add to the young core and aid in the replacement of Porter and Payton, but it has become clear that those additions simply aren’t enough.
DiVincenzo and Green have replaced some of what the Dubs lost, but his young core has been slow to fill their roles. A rehabbing James Wiseman was sent to Santa Cruz for development, and Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody have each spent time out of the rotation or with limited minutes. Green and DiVincenzo are adjusting their game to meet the Warriors’ needs, and Kerr is still looking for answers. What is missing?
Merry Christmas Doc and Noah, Santa made a stop here.🎁
