I was certain this upcoming season the Warriors would take a step back, and not be the dominant juggernaut they have been for the last half decade. It wouldn’t be surprising with Durant’s injury and subsequent free agency departure to the Nets, as well as Klay Thompson’s ACL injury. However, the Warriors may not be ready to just lie down and let the Lakers take the West by default. 

That’s where D’Angelo Russell comes in. The Warriors surprised everyone by completing a sign-and-trade with the Nets that got them Russell. It’s a 4-year, $117 million maximum contract. Which means the Warriors may not be going away so easily come next season.
