2. Golden State Warriors
The Dubs are the current dynasty. They have won four of the last nine championships and are gearing up for another run. Kevin Durant is long gone, and their other three building blocks are all in their mid-30s. The Warriors roster is getting expensive and will desperately need a makeover in the next five years.
As Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green head into their declines, Ant-Man will be ascending. The Warriors are never afraid to spend and will be eager to add another superstar as the current group phases out of the league. Can Golden State convince Edwards to lead the next generation in the Bay Area?
Kevin Durant joined the roster and won his first championship with the Warriors. If Golden State can remake their supporting cast, a superstar may jump at the chance to keep the dynasty going. Anthony Edwards would be a rock star in the Bay Area if he joined the Warriors, and Stephen Curry proved the Dubs’ best player can be one of the biggest box office draws in the league.
Anthony Edwards will have multiple teams in California competing for his services. If he tries to maximize his brand, does he choose the current dynasty or the league’s most popular team?
