Best Warriors' 10-man lineup using their draft picks over last 30 years
Point guard -- Steph Curry -- 2009 NBA Draft
If this one is not obvious, then this might not be the list for you. The two-time NBA MVP, three-time NBA champion and future Hall of Famer that changed the landscape of the NBA seems like a pretty solid pick to start at point guard for this 30-year draft pick team.
Shooting guard -- Klay Thompson -- 2011 NBA Draft
You wouldn't miss an opportunity to put the Splash Brothers together in the starting backcourt, would you?
Klay is one of the best two-way shooting guards of all time, and will go down as one of the best shooters the league has ever seen.
Forward -- Penny Hardaway -- 1993 NBA Draft
Now this is where things get crazy. I bet you are wondering if Chris Webber will make this list. He cannot, because the Warriors did not technically draft him. They selected Penny Hardaway with their pick and traded him along with future picks to Orlando for Chris Webber.
Webber ended up playing only one season for the Dubs before moving on. Hardaway in the meantime helped the Magic reach the NBA Finals before injuries derailed his career. In his prime, he was a dynamic playmaker and scorer that would be similar to prime Andre Iguodala in the starting wing spot.
Forward -- Vince Carter -- 1998 NBA Draft
Yes, this one still stings for a lot of Warriors fans. In 1998, the Warriors selected UNC forward, but traded him for his fellow UNC forward teammate Antawn Jamison.
Jamison had a nice five-year career with the Dubs, scoring as high as 25 points per game in the 2000-01 season. Carter meanwhile went on to be an eight-time NBA All Star and future first ballot Hall of Famer. At 6-foot-6, he would be a very small power forward in this starting lineup, but I'm sure the coaching staff could make it work with so much offensive firepower.
Center -- Draymond Green -- 2012 NBA Draft
Unlike the rest of the starting lineup, Draymond was the only second-round draft pick, and might go down as one of the best late selections in NBA history. The three-time NBA All-Star and former Defensive Player of the Year would be the perfect small-ball center for this team, and captain a switching, flexible defense.
Bench -- Gilbert Arenas -- 2001 NBA Draft
Agent Zero was a second-round draft pick like Draymond, and the perfect bench spark plug scorer the team could use when Curry sits.
The three-time NBA All-Star scored over 28 points per game into two different seasons, so just imagine what he could bring to this squad.
Bench -- Latrell Sprewell -- 1992 NBA Draft
OK, so maybe we would have to make sure Sprewell and the head coach got along before adding him to the squad, but the four-time NBA All-Star would be a fantastic wing/guard to spell Klay and Penny, and bring his tough minded defense and complete floor game to the team.
Bench -- Jason Richardson -- 2001 NBA Draft
Not only was J-Rich a high flying two-time dunk champion and fan favorite at Oracle, but he also was a consistent scorer that got better year after year with the Warriors.
Like Sprewell, Richardson could play both the shooting guard and wing position, and be the vertical threat alongside Carter that would light up Chase Center.
Bench -- Monta Ellis -- 2005 NBA Draft
This will be an offensive juggernaut of a squad already, but adding Ellis will make them that much more potent on the fast break. In the open court, Ellis was a missile that would attack the rim with speed and finesse.
Bench -- Joe Smith -- 1995 NBA Draft
Being the No. 1 overall pick put extra pressure and expectation on Smith from the get-go, but in general, he was a solid contributor that put up some big numbers early on. In his second season with the Dubs, Smith scored just under 19 points per game and collected 8.5 rebounds.
Imagine that production coming off the bench when Draymond sits, or play alongside of him when the Warriors want to go bigger.
