Last week, the Warriors won the title against the Celtics and launched into great celebrations. Seven days after this coronation, the fans have a new reason to celebrate: the perspective selected during the Draft is monstrous, it has infinite potential, which terrifies the experts.
The Warriors win their fourth title in eight years, and because the roster is expected to stay more or less the same, there’s a good chance they’ll go far next season as well. In fact, the most terrifying is that they could even improve with a much better Klay Thompson and especially a James Wiseman finally freed from his injuries.
We must also take into account the expected progression of Jonathan Kuminga, a physical phenomenon that could do good on an athletic and defensive level. And as if all these elements were not enough, Golden State had the chance to select a monster this Thursday during the Draft, with the 28th choice. Their perspective is not required for the highest level, but its potential is terrifying. He has the game and the attitude to shine in the Bay.
The Warriors select Patrick Baldwin Jr.!

When he left high school, Patrick Baldwin Jr. was considered one of the best players in the country, like Chet Holmgren and Paolo Banchero, and the Warriors picked him up at 28th position! It must be said that he was very disappointing in the NCAA on the side of Milwaukee, but with extenuating circumstances. Already, he was hit in the ankle and could not move freely, and above all, he was evolving under the orders of his father, which is always very complicated. For the experts, Golden State could not have dreamed of a better prospect there.
Golden State takes on Patrick Baldwin Jr. Hooooooooo boy.
Baldwin, a former No. 1 player in his HS class, could find himself among the top 10 players in this year’s draft class.
The Warriors are unfair. Given that front office’s track record, this pick should terrify the rest of the NBA.

Golden State selects Patrick Baldwin Jr. My god. Former player n°1 of his age group in high school, he could become one of the 10 best players of this vintage. The Warriors are unfair. This choice should terrorize the rest of the league.
There’s no better situation for Patrick Baldwin than the Warriors. Perfect match between the team and the prospect.

There’s no better situation for Patrick Baldwin than the Warriors. Perfect association between a team and a player.
The Warriors win a new title, they already present very talented young people like Jordan Poole, Jonathan Kuminga or James Wiseman, and they in addition to drafting an absolute monster… This Front Office is definitely in another galaxy.
