Win or Lose, the Golden State Warriors are Great Entertainment

Stephen Jackson was second on his team last night with 26 points behind newcomer Corey Maggette who had 27.

For the past two NBA seasons the Golden State Warriors have been an exciting team to watch. Their brand of run-and-gun doesn’t always ensure victory, but for what it’s worth, it provides a lot of entertainment. Even though Baron Davis has packed his bags and gone to the L.A. Clippers, after the performance that the Warriors with newly acquired Corey Maggette put on last night against New Orleans, this team promises to deliver.

If you watch the Warriors closely, you will notice that they are never out of a game. They tend to take shots in transition most of the time and it can prove to be killer for them as it was in their 108-103 loss against the Hornets last night, in the sense that it will keep them down by two to four points throughout a large portion of a game when they’re playing against contenders. But regardless, this is exciting basketball, and the way that they consistently keep it close, when they aren’t blowing their opponents out, further establishes their propensity for elite entertainment.

With the departure of Baron Davis, the Warriors are now led by Stephen Jackson and Corey Maggette. Jackson hits threes and much like Gilbert Arenas will knock down some questionable shots, while he and Maggette can take it to the hole or shoot a smooth “J.” Aside from those two players, the supporting cast is high-flying and tenacious. If the Warriors can continue their place as one of the highest scoring teams in the league then the return of Monta Ellis, the player who made the decision not to resign Davis much easier, will really have this team rolling at the point guard position.

 
 

 

 

Monta Ellis, out with an injury he earned in a motorcycle accident, has increased his points per game in his first three season; 6.8, 16.5, and 20.2 respectively.
