Podcast: Building Championship Contenders

Golden State Warriors WallpaperGolden State used an unorthodox method to winning its first championship in over 40 years.

Instead of targeting young draft prospects with plenty of upside, the Warriors sought out upperclassmen from college and surrounded their core with capable veterans.

The balanced roster was brought together by a rookie coach, Steve Kerr, and toppled Cleveland in six games to claim the 2015 NBA championship.

Stephen Curry was a question mark on draft night, as six teams passed on him, with four guards being selected prior to the Warriors choosing him with the seventh overall pick.

In six seasons, Curry transformed into the most dominant long range shooter in NBA history, as he set the single season record with 286 conversions from 3-point range in the regular season, then he smashed the post season record for most makes from beyond the arc with 98.

In our latest podcast, we delve into how the Warriors transformed into championship team, with new ownership, a complete roster overhaul, savvy draft selections and luck in free agency, then conduct a mock draft in preparation for Thursday’s NBA Draft showcase.
