NBA Podcast: 2013-14 Golden State Warriors Season Preview

Joel C. CordesNBA Associate EditorAugust 8, 2013

The Golden State Warriors played the part of Cinderella last year, but can these lovable Dubs keep the magic going now that it's not a surprise?

As one of the offseason's clear winners, Golden State deftly acquired Andre Iguodala by spending spare parts and cap ballast only. They also fleshed out their bench with Toney Douglas, Marreese Speights and Jermaine O'Neal.

For a team already loaded with the shooting prowess of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, the frontcourt versatility of Andrew Bogut and David Lee, along with the athleticism of Harrison Barnes, this is a stacked roster.

Yet, all of these moves came at the expense of key cogs like Carl Landry, Brandon Rush and Jarrett Jack. The Warriors' myriad health problems are always lurking, and plenty of opponents will take them seriously from the start this year. Oh, they play in the always unpredictable and hellishly competitive Western Conference too.

NBA Deputy Editor Chris Trenchard joins Ethan Norof and Joel C. Cordes for the latest episode of Basketball by Association.
