Are The Warriors Trying To Create Bulls 2.0?

Yes, this is a bit of a stretch, but think about the roster the Warriors are trying to assemble and compare it to the Bulls.

PG: Curry = Rose: Reports say the Warriors would have traded either Curry or Monta in the Bogut trade but the Bucks wanted Monta. Regardless, the Warriors are relying on a scoring point guard, just like the Bulls do with Derrick Rose. Granted, Curry isn't close to being as good as Rose, but he will score 20+ points and give you 6-7 assists.

GF Thompson = Deng: I switched the positions for Thompson and Wright because like Deng is much more valuable compared to Hamilton, Thompson is much more valuable than Wright. Thompson and Deng are both good defenders (Deng better) and they both can shoot the ball with efficiency (Thompson better) but are underrated when it comes to taking the ball inside and making plays for their teammates.

GF Wright = Hamilton: Clearly, the Bulls weakest position has been shooting guard, the position where Hamilton plays. Next year, the Warriors weakest position will be small forward, where Wright plays. Neither team is getting enough production from their weak position. Neither is shooting as well as they are used to from the 3-point line and can really change the levels their teams can play on when they are performing well.

PF: Lee = Boozer: Boozer is a former all star who can be a reliable secondary scoring option, but can hurt his team on defense. Sound vaguely familiar?

C: Bogut = Noah: They can both provide some scoring inside, but the big impact they have is on the defensive end of the floor- blocking shots, grabbing rebounds, and providing length on the front line.

Bench PGs: Robinson/Jenkins = Watson/Lucas: Both teams have decent point guard backups. None of them are true point guards, but they will run the offense and look for ways to score when the opportunity presents itself.

Bench SFs: Korver = Rush: They both come into the game and shoot the 3 ball for their respective teams. Enough said.

The comparisons stop there, but the Warriors clearly upgraded their bench this off-season and made sure their role players were much better defensively than in previous years. They also hired Michael Malone (known for his defensive impact on teams) and a former assistant coach of the Bulls. What do you guys think?
