As one of the most historic and legendary teams in NBA history, the Golden State Warriors have won a total of 7 NBA championships in history. The team has a record of 7 wins and 5 losses in the NBA Finals
, 12 times to enter the NBA Finals is also the top three in history, second only to the Lakers (32 times) and the Celtics (22 times).
There has never been a lack of legendary stars in the history of the Warriors, from Wilt Chamberlain, Rick Barry and Nate Thurmond in ancient times to Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson in modern times.
They all wore the armor of warriors.
So here let the editor rank these modern legends of warriors by level:
Tier 5: Floyd, Monta Ellis, Sean Livingston, Chris Webber, Jeff Mullins, Purvis Short, Joe Barry Carroll
, Jamal Wilkes, Antawn Jamison, Robert Parish, Bernard King, Guy Rogers
Most of the players in this level are All-Star players or players who play an important role in individual positions. Among them, modern representatives include Monta Ellis and Sean Livingston.
Monta Ellis was the former boss of the Warriors. Known for his speed in the 2000s, he was traded by the team in 2012 to make way for Curry as the starting point guard.
Livingston’s career was both heartbreaking and passionate. Livingston suffered one of the worst injuries in NBA history. After recovering, he used his precise mid-range shooting to become an indispensable member of the Warriors’ bench
, He won the NBA championship three times with the team from 2014 to 2018.
Tier 4: Chris Mullin, Andre Iguodala, Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond, Jason Richardson, Latrell Sprewell,
Tom Gora, Baron Davis, Joe Foxx
The representative figure of this level is none other than Iguodala. He is not only the main veteran of the Golden State Warriors, but also one of the most influential players in the locker room.
Iguodala joined the Warriors in 2014 and immediately became one of the key rotation players off the bench.
In the 2015 NBA Finals, Iguodala’s excellent defense against LeBron James won him the Finals MVP honors that year.
He also won two championships for the Warriors as a substitute player in 2017 and 2018. Although the 38-year-old has no previous defensive influence, his rich experience can still make him play miraculously on the court.
Tier 3: Nate Thurmond, Klay Thompson, Neil Johnston, Draymond Green
This level has one of the greatest shooters in NBA history. Thompson is a key member of the Warriors who won 4 NBA championships. So far in his career, he has been selected to the All-Star 5 times, the NBA All-NBA Team 2 times, and the NBA Finals 1 time.
Good defensive lineup.
Even after suffering two serious injuries, Thompson can still contribute 20 points per game per season.
Although Green is not as good as Thompson in statistics, his contribution to the team is definitely no lower than anyone else, because he is not only the team’s last line of defense but also the organizer of the offensive end.
Green also won 4 championships for the Warriors, and was selected to 7 All-Defensive Teams, 4 All-Star Teams and 2 All-NBA Teams.
Tier 2: Wilt Chamberlain, Kevin Durant, Rick Barry, Paul Arizin
Durant’s selection is bound to cause some controversy, but his contribution during his effectiveness must not be ignored.
After failing to challenge the Warriors in the 2016 Western Conference Finals, Durant chose to join the Warriors as a free agent at the end of the season. Then the Warriors entered the NBA Finals for three consecutive seasons, and two consecutive years in 2017 and 2018.
Won the championship, and Durant won the finals MVP twice. His unsolvable scoring ability has helped the team turn the tide many times. I believe the fans will never forget this hero who achieved two consecutive championships for the team.
Tier 1: Stephen Curry
As the best player in team history, Curry used his three-pointers to influence the entire NBA, and also rewrote the history of the Warriors. He created a dynasty for the Warriors, leading the team to 6 finals in 8 years and winning 4 of them.
, Curry left his peak to the Warriors.
Curry is also the only unanimous MVP in NBA history, the record holder for three-pointers made and the Warriors’ all-time leading scorer.
