If you needed another reminder that the Warriors' five man lineup of Harrison Barnes, Andre Iguodala, Draymond Green, Stephen Curry, and Klay Thompson was the most lethal unit in the world (and perhaps in history), check this out:

5 out of 30 = 16.66666666666666% of the finalists are from the Warriors.
On opening night, there was a total 446 players on teams' rosters. 101 of them were born outside the US, meaning that (theoretically) there were 345 players potentially eligible for consideration for the 30 finalist spots on Team USA.
16.666666666% of 345 = 57.4999999999999
So, basically, the five man Death Squad unit from the Warriors is equal to 57.5 NBA players. That's 11.5 times better than what you'd expect. Or, another way, each of them is playing as well as 2.3 NBA players.
Or, something. Got a little off target.
For now, let's celebrate the fact that all five of them made the cut. It is an impressive achievement for sure.
