HA! Lots of unhappy Warrior bandwagon fans about now that weren't living in reality and were expecting a blowout (speaking about my Facebook).yeah seriously though despite the curb stomping, you can see that stylistically they are going to be fine. Chemistry isn't going to be a problem. Lots of turnovers, terrible defense, and the spurs being potentially better than the one that quietly won 67 games last year play into the opening day loss. If you watched this game and your takeaway was "haha I knew they would have trouble coexisting", you don't know this sport very well. This warriors team will still be more dangerous than the team that won 73 last year.
They've got some serious work to do on their D before they're championship-worthy. They look like Swiss cheese right now. It begs the question of what many of us were asking this summer - is the added offense to an already league-leading offense really worth all of the losses elsewhere?
And you've got to hand it to the Spurs. They're much better than I thought they were going to be, though you can see Duncan's absence in the defensive presence and rotations.
On offense, sure, though I still bet there will be sharing the ball issues sometime this season.
Defensively, they're far from where they were, which is a major issue for them, and they can't rebound for crap, which is not good when their main competition (SAS, CLE, LAC) includes three elite rebounding teams.
