Golden Stats of Mind Episode 1: The decade’s top five-man lineups

New, comments

Welcome to our new podcast network!

NBA: Phoenix Suns at Golden State Warriors Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Golden State Warriors are spectacular right now, with an five-man All-Star lineup of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, and DeMarcus Cousins.

Of course, it hasn’t always been that way. Over the last ten years the Warriors have rocked lineups with fewer All-Stars and won championships. They’ve rocked lineups with no All-Stars and won lottery picks. They’ve rocked seemingly everything in between.

But there’s been one constant over the last decade: The Dubs have been a lot of fun.

That’s a good transition to some new content that we’re offering at Golden State of Mind. After a brief hiatus, we’re back with some podcasts, and these are going to be relatively frequent.

We have a few different shows we’ll roll out over the next few weeks. You can expect them to come out on a fairly regular schedule.

The first show we’re debuting is called Golden Stats of Mind. Notice the different letter - this podcast has a statistical base. It’s not ultra-nerdy, or entirely stat-driven - it’s just a Warriors conversation where Duby Dub Dubs and I will focus on a stat relating to the team, and see where the conversation takes us.

In our inaugural episode, we focused on some of the top five-man lineups over the last decade. From dominant starting units on championship teams, to barely-used bench squads from lottery years, we looked at ten lineups that had an excellent offensive rating, defensive rating, or both.
