The Golden State Warriors is the most dominating team in the NBA this season. That’s why they are one of the nominees for Team of the Year at the Laureus World Sports Awards. The organization nominated the Warriors for the award for the third year in a row.
In 2019, the Golden State Warriors is the only American team in the running for Team of the Year. If they win the award, they will be the first NBA team to do so. Warriors GM Bob Myers told sports news that it is an honor for the Warriors to be one of the six teams in the running for the prestigious award.
The other nominees for Team of the Year include France Men’s National Football Team, Real Madrid, European Ryder Cup Team, Norway Winter Olympics Team, and the Mercedes-AMG Petronas.
With the way the Warriors are playing, they are on their way to winning their fourth straight Western Conference title. The only team standing in their way is the Houston Rockets.
The Golden State Warriors are also heavy favorites to win the championship this year. Most sportsbook pay per head experts put them in the first place. Other teams that got votes include the Toronto Raptors, Milwaukee Bucks, and Houston Rockets.
DeMarcus Cousins is set to join the squad after missing out the first half of the season due to an injury. With his addition to the squad, the team is stronger and will be more dominant in the playoffs.
Although there are some forgettable moments in the first half of the season, the Warriors are back on track. The team is healthy. Curry, Durant, Thompson, and Green are showing the world why they are still All-Stars. In addition, the bench is coming together by hitting their shots.
The team has the best offensive rating and second-best net rating in the NBA. According to sportsbook pay per head reviews, the game against the Denver Nuggets showed what they can do when everyone is on their A-game. As long as they stay healthy, it is impossible to beat the Warriors this season.
