Being realistic there isn't a whole lot of players left in the league that the Warriors would like to see in their jersey because most of them are. 4 of the Warriors starting 5 are All-Stars, which is an incredible achievement both through the development of young players like Draymond, making your draft picks great players like Klay, taking smart picks like Steph and leaving enough money for the team to sign Kevin Durant.
The greatness of the Warriors is capitalized with the way that they dominate on both ends of the floor both offensively and defensively which can be attributed to their players and style of play. Come to the offseason this year there isn't a big long list of names like some other teams might have including their dream signings, however, if the Warriors could sign anyone they'd like these might be some of the players they would.
5. DeMarcus Cousins
Boogie would look great in a Warriors uniform! A big man that can hang around the 3 point line that can also pass the ball better than most at his position? What more can the Warriors want? That's their bread and butter. Boogie was traded this year to the Pelicans right after the All-Star break and continued his dominance in New Orleans showing why he is the best center in the game. Remove ZaZa and replace him with someone who averaged 27.0 points and 11.1 rebounds per game, now that's a team that wouldn't lose.
One slight problem, those technicals might add up. With both DeMarcus and Draymond on the same team, you can just imagine the back talking and physical play, which makes them who they are but also gets them in a lot of trouble.
4. Eric Gordon
Gordon could add to the only seeable downside to the Warriors and that's their bench. Bring a man who made 246 three-pointers for the Rockets this year and stick him on the best three-point team in history and that's a recipe for a lot of triples. With Steph and Klay taking the starting position and forming the best shooting backcourt in NBA history while adding a possible 6th man of the year and the same man who shot 37.2% from deep this year and all the Warriors problems would go away.
Just imagine Steph dribbling the ball down the court and having Eric Gordon, Klay, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green open for three. I'd hate to be the man who would have to guard that.
3. Anthony Davis
He's young, he's athletic, he's a defensive monster and he's an MVP candidate. You cannot ask for anything more. Adding AD to the mix would allow the Warriors to play him at the 5 spot and continue to run Draymond at the 4. This keeps the Warriors undersized and that is without a doubt one of the best things the Warriors do. They play small, run the floor and kick it out to open three's.
With Anthony Davis on the Warriors if those threes weren't falling they could just lob it towards the rim. We've all seen those highlights of Davis running the floor and catching a lob from half court, so how can you stop that if he's on the Warriors? Simple, you can't. Davis could become the 5th and final All-Star on that team, which means that the Western Conference All-Stars would be all Warriors.
2. Giannis Antetokounmpo
Which team does not want the Greek Freak right now? He is the next big thing. Possibly the Most Improved Player this season and a potential MVP in the future. Adding Giannis to Golden State would be ideal for the security of their future and would instantly improve their already great chance for winning a ring. He's young and would be able to gain the confidence of playing on an unselfish dominant team. With his size and length the possibilities are endless of the numerous Warriors lineups coach Steve Kerr could create, maybe Draymond plays the man in the middle with Giannis at the 4 and KD at the 3, or you could swap those two over and have Giannis at the 4. Even have the Greek Freak run point guard with Steph Curry at Shooting Guard coming off screens.
Either way, Giannis is the future, and every Golden State fan I'm sure would want him on their team. In fact, every fan in the world would want him with their teams uniform on.
1. Rudy Gobert/ Nikola Jokic
This was a hard one. It really comes down to who you personally desire more on the Warriors team.
The 7+ foot defensive anchor, or the young triple double threat. Either way, both men have bad beyond incredible seasons, both are in the running for Most Improved and both seem to be primed to become the best bigs in the league for many years to come. Rudy Gobert is in the top 2 for Defensive Player of The Year runnings alongside guess who, Draymond Green. With Rudy at the 5 spot, no team in the league would be able to enter the paint against the Warriors. Even the King LeBron James might want to think twice before driving to the basketball against Draymond and Rudy.
But Jokic is another story. Only his second year in the league and averaging 16.7 points, 9.8 rebounds and 4.9 assists for a center is unbelievable. Jokic standing at the top of the key with Klay, Steph and KD running off screens for a catch and shoot threes would be an awesome game to behold each and every night. Steph is already a creative passing machine, Draymond is a triple double threat every night and adding Jokic to the mix could spell an offensive nightmare.
So who do you pick, Rudy's defensive anchor, or Jokic running the Warriors offense? Either way that's some scary thoughts.
