One of the Golden State Warriors’ greatest assets this season has been their depth. The talent up and down the Warriors’ roster has given them a significant advantage over many teams, and it also allows Steve Kerr to give his starters more rest.
Marreese Speights is having a resurgent season, David Lee’s skill set and ability to score works perfectly off the bench, Andre Iguodala provides the bench with elite perimeter defense and ball distribution, Shaun Livingston is an ideal backup for Stephen Curry, and Justin Holiday has been having a breakout season.
One of the most underrated signings this past offseason for the Warriors though was bringing in veteran guard Leandro Barbosa.
Recently, we started a series of articles called “Dubs by the Digits.” These articles give fans a quick statistical breakdown on members of the Golden State Warriors.
The first article of this series was about Warriors backup point guard, Shaun Livingston, the second article of this series was about Warriors shooting guard/small forward, Brandon Rush, the third article in this series was about Warriors small forward/power forward, Draymond Green.
The next Warriors player we’ll take a look at is guard Leandro Barbosa.
