What would you say are the realistic ceilings for the main players if they all come back and are healthy? I see multiple candidates for all- MVPs, Defensive PotY, Most improved player, 6th men, all stars, 3 point winners, dunk winner. Wow, what potential.
Looks a lot better than the question marks near these players at the start of this season.
Curry/Bogut - major health concerns
Barnes and Draymond/Festus - rookies, 2 second rounders
Jack/Landry - new to the club
The only constants were David Lee, sophomore Klay and a sophomore coach.
What numbers do you think they could put up? I feel if Jack/Landry are signed, they are the only ones that could regress because of contract comfort. Bogut should be mostly healthy if he avoids freak accidents. Curry will always be an injury concern until he plays barefoot. But aside from injuries, almost every player should get better/much better through health or experience.
I could also see Klay and Barnes wanting to be traded in a few years. Klay, because he wants more shots and is tired of being in the shadow of a better shooter than him. Barnes, because he appears to have the drive to be great and dominate the league as a bigger part of a team. I worry when I watch them being interviewed and 75% of the questions are about Curry.
