NBA Teams Allegedly Improving Their Respective Roster To Stop Golden State Warriors’ Reign Of Dominance For Years
Most of the NBA teams are already looking for ways to improve their respective roster in order to tip the reign of dominance of the Golden State Warriors in the coming years. It was reported that the teams already expected this that's why they are not even willing to take a backseat.
It can be recalled that before winning the 2017 NBA Championship, the Golden State Warriors had an incredible 16-1 postseason. The NBA teams are said to be unwilling to just let that happen again and they are said to be increasing their ante.
According to a report from Business Insider, most of the teams are said to be interested to acquire stars that are also available. With this, it was also claimed that the teams must provide at least three bona fide stars to compete with any contender of the Golden State Warriors.
The Houston Rockets already started to improve their roster and they are not yet one either. In fact, last Wednesday, the team agreed to a trade that will land them Chris Paul for them to pair with James Harden. Apart from Chris, they were also looking forward to acquire Carmelo Anthony, Paul George, and Paul Millsap.
The coach of the Houston Rockets, Mike D'Antoni just shared that the team is indeed chasing the Golden State Warriors which they considered as one of the best teams in the history of basketball. J.R Smith of the Cleveland Cavaliers also agreed to this and said that the league if in a frenzy right now because of the Warriors.
Aside from the Houston Rockets, the Cleveland Cavaliers were also looking forward to improving their roster. Although the team dominated the Eastern Conference for three straight seasons, they appeared outmatched against the Golden State Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals.
The Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly chased Jimmy Butler just before the draft and were also finding ways to acquire George through a trade. Like the Rockets, the team was also interested in getting Carmelo Anthony if he will be released by the New York Knicks.
Reports were also claiming that most NBA teams have considered matching the Golden State Warriors roster of players. It was also added that the teams were planning to slow their rebuilds until the Warriors' roster will fall apart.
