C - Golden State Warriors There's probably a great book to be written about the 2009-10 Warriors, along the lines of Terry Pluto's classic Loose Balls about life in the ABA. On defense, they are addicted gamblers, deploying a steal-or-layup philosophy that usually ends as badly as any gambling jones. On offense, they play by far the fastest pace in the NBA, generate nearly five more fast-break points than anyone else and rank eighth in field-goal percentage. And yet, they still are only 19th in offensive efficiency because no teammate makes it down to the basket to rebound misses and maintain possession. They've been ravaged by injuries and initially beset by the Don Nelson-Stephen Jackson feud. They also have some talented players -- including Anthony Randolph, Stephen Curry and Andris Biedrins -- whose evolution outside of Nelson's petri dish would be fascinating to watch.
