The Golden State Warriors have had some of the best players in NBA history suit up for them over the franchise’s history. But, who would be in your starting five?
ESPN releases its all-time Dubs starting lineup, and this is how it looks:
PG: Steph Curry
SG: Klay Thompson
SF: Kevin Durant
PF: Draymond Green
C: Wilt Chamberlain
ESPN’s Warriors reporter Nick Friedell had this to say about the omissions:
“It’s tough leaving Hall of Famers Rick Barry and Chris Mullin out of this group, but who would come out? Curry and Thompson form the best shooting backcourt of all time. Durant is one of the best players of his generation and Green provides the defensive intensity and glue that has propelled them for years — plus those four already have played together. There is no stopping this team. A juggernaut for the ages.”
I agree with Friedell’s choices, as tough as it is to not have Mullin in the group. But, with the Warriors having so many great players through the years, let’s have some fun with this.
Who would be your secondary starters? There are a ton of Dubs to choose from, including: Mullin, Barry, Nate Thurmond, Neil Johnston, Tim Hardaway, Sleepy Floyd, Baron Davis, Mitch Richmond, Jeff Mullins and Joe Barry Carrol.
What do you think of ESPN’s list? Who would be your next five?
