Warriors Better Playoff Team Without Lee?

It’s quantifiable, it’s palpable and it’s only deniable if you view all things through the prism of David Lee’s All-Star reputation.
It’s a real thing, though: The Warriors are a more dangerous playoff team without Lee than they ever were when he was healthy.
OK, let me also point out that Lee was absolutely necessary during the regular season when Andrew Bogut was out or limited and the team’s younger players were playing young.
But at this advanced stage of Warriors activity — tied 1-1 with the Spurs in the Western Conference semifinals — there just isn’t much doubt that Lee’s torn hip-flexor in Game 1 of the first round hasn’t hurt them.
It freed the Warriors to be more of who they truly should be, actually.
