    No topic is debated more among NBA fans than the pros and cons buy nba 2k20 mt “super teams”. The assumption is teams in bigger markets clear cap space, and lure marquee free agents away from smaller markets. To be clear, this does happen, but this is not how the Warriors built one of the best organizations in the NBA. Golden State’s success is a product of the NBA draft, and it is the same way we have seen winning NBA franchises be built for decades.

    When fans complain about super teams, what we’re really asking is for NBA GM’s to build better teams. With the exception of the 2016 addition of Kevin Durant, the core of the Warriors all came through the draft.

The reasons are worth a separate article, but the biggest thing the Warriors were able to do is identify talent that was undervalued by the rest of the league.
