The Golden State Warriors have received many well-deserved plaudits this year. Even after a recent five game losing streak, the Warriors look poised to post their second best record in the last twenty years. They have a potential top-10 player, an All-Star, their best center since Nate Thurmond, and a strong coach of the year candidate. Overblown panic from losing to Houston, Oklahoma City, Memphis, Dallas (all on the road, 4 games in 5 nights) and Houston notwithstanding, the Warriors are a legitimately good basketball team.
