Saracevic: Warriors ‘Won’t Sneak Up’

In the short span of two seasons, the Warriors’ new ownership has succeeded in building a core nucleus of talented and humble players who have dragged this franchise from the NBA abyss into the league spotlight.
The days of Chris Cohan, Don Nelson and Stephen Jackson are long gone, replaced by Joe Lacob, Mark Jackson and Steph Curry.
“I’m very optimistic about this group,” said Lacob, standing courtside and chatting up fans. “I think we’re built to win now. And I think we can do it.”
With higher expectations, of course, comes higher pressure. The Warriors aren’t going to sneak up on anyone this season. But they may surprise some people with their size.
First off, Andrew Bogut has proclaimed himself 100 percent healthy. And after his intimidating playoff performance last spring, playing at about 70 percent, a healthy Bogut could be scary. The Warriors will also have the experienced Jermaine O’Neal backing the big Aussie up. Even with young big man Festus Ezeli out with a serious knee injury, the Warriors will have a healthy David Lee and incoming All-Star Andre Iguodala.
