The NBA 2020 season is postponed due to Corona Virus (Covid-19) and is likely to be cut short which will lead to many challenges, especially with Golden State Warriors.
Golden State Warriors and preparation facing the Fatal Outbreak
Having just experienced extremely difficult days in terms of achievement, Golden State Warriors is preparing to enter a challenging offseason season ahead. But now that the NBA 2020 is postponed and the future is unclear, the road to the offseason is a bit more difficult.
Despite having the worst NBA 2020 overall record with 15 wins in 65 matches, the last 17 matches of the Regular Season are in some ways still the most important appearances.
It is clear that Warriors cannot compete for Playoffs. But as planned, these 17 matches will be a time for the leadership and the coaching team to monitor and re-evaluate the quality of the entire squad.
In particular, some players will be monitored specifically to be given the opportunity next season, when Golden State will return to glory with the strongest squad.
Entering the final month of the Regular Season, Golden State Warriors will allow some of the younger players to play more. It can be said that these names will be “brought to the sea” to be challenged with a higher number of minutes to test their ability to integrate.
With players like Ky Bowman, Juan Toscano-Anderson or the name just signed Mychal Mulder, this is a golden opportunity for them to look for a place in the squad next season. But those opportunities have temporarily passed.
Not only players like Mulder but …
Not only players like Mulder but many other names in the line-up are affected, even those who have signed a contract to ensure the future.
Originally, Marquese Chriss was able to use these last 17 games to impress, aiming for a central position in the starting lineup next season.
In addition, Eric Paschall, Jordan Poole, Damion Lee or Alen Smailagic may have used those games to build themselves as players who can play regularly on the bench. Now, that opportunity is also temporarily taken away.
And who says only “out-of-play” players will lose their turn. Even digital star names won’t have many opportunities to compete together if the NBA 2020 season is shortened or eliminates the rest of the Regular Season.
Warriors fans will not be able to see how Andrew Wiggins plays alongside Stephen Curry. This is certainly not the scenario that the Golden State was heading to when it struck a blockbuster deal to bring Wiggins to Chase Center.
One of the main reasons Curry re-appeared was to test his connection to Wiggins. But then both players only played together … 27 minutes and there is no time they play with Draymond Green.
It takes a lot of time to play together, the Warriors coach can follow the connection between Wiggins and the frame around Steph and Draymond. Coach Steve Kerr wants to see bright points big enough before deciding to keep Andrew Wiggins for future seasons.
With the NBA 2020 season delayed by at least 30 days and facing the risk of shortening, a lot of teams are affected. But perhaps not a name as notable as the Golden State Warriors, the collective had five consecutive NBA 2020 Finals series before becoming the last club in the table.
Now, Dub Nation fans will have to wait and see how the team management will calculate the future moves, which will determine whether Warriors can return to their heyday. not next season.
