Adding the body armor is clearly about giving Steph the protection he will need for what is likely going to be his most challenging regular season campaign as a contender. We clearly and rightfully expect to play well into the summer, but during the regular season we aren't likely to be blowing teams out in 3 quarters anymore. His minutes are going to go up, Klay's are probably going to be a little limited in the first half. The improved body will situate him nicely to handle the extra load, and still head into the spring ready to have his best playoff campaign ever. But handling an increased regular season minutes load is going to lead to him taking more of a pounding.

I think Kerr may commit to the youth movement and keep Curry's minutes down and accept that the games will be closer as a result.

We aren’t going to be in a position to mess around with home court seeding. This will be a dogfight in a loaded western conference. It’s going to be the highest stakes and most exciting Ws season of this dynasty. Hold onto your nutsak

I'm all for keeping Curry's minutes limited, but if that's the case it sure would help to have a competent PG during those minutes, which IMO we do not currently have (and don't say Draymond). If we're not able to trade/sign one, then Haliburton makes a lot of sense. Yes, he's a rookie, but I think he could handle backup PG duties during the RS. He passes, he shoots, he plays defense.

Kerr and the Warriors may decide that being a top 4 seed is good enough. If they burn the vets huge minutes during the season they will be more likely to break down in the playoffs. Lessons they learned in the 73 win season.

I don't disagree ... I'm not sure Haliburton will necessarily be better than Bowman/Poole on their 2nd years as a rookie. Ideally the Warriors add Marcus Smart for pocket change with Boston trying to get under the cap and it solves a bunch of problems. (as long as I'm dreaming)

Haliburton is longer and taller than Bowman or Poole.

That is true. He's also slower has a more funky shooting motion.

But the point is is he better as a rookie than two 2nd year players who know the team and the scheme and the league and how to be a pro. I don't know.

I don't think wins are going to come so easy that we are a top 4 seed without grinding all the way to the finish line. I believe that the west is strong enough that we won't be able to coast for any significant length of time.

Teams will still target us, looking for vengeance for seasons lost. We have our work cut out for us.

But I'd rather miss out on top four than run guys into the ground. See who we add this offseason, but whatever happens noone wants to meet this team in the post-season at full strength.
