Who Will the Warriors' Leading Scorer Be?

Before I get into this, a quick shout-out to the San Francisco Giants, who did a fabulous job to sweep the Tigers in the World Series. Although the Tigers didn’t win, they played with hear, and with Justin Verlander, they should be back soon. This night, however, is no doubt legendary for Bay Area Sports… Well the west side of the bay.

Now, moving on to the Warriors. Who will end up being the go-to guy, who can easily put up 20 PPG? Although the Warriors have a lot of depth, they still need a go-to guy. Without this guy, they might not do so well.

Right now, many fantasize about Stephen Curry dropping 20 PPG. While he is capable of doing this, I don’t think Curry will be motivated to go 100% till he’s gone at least 3 months without being injured. This will seriously put his stats down.

This leaves way for David Lee, who should average around 18 PPG, and Klay Thompson, who, if lucky, should average around 19-20 PPG. If not lucky, he is projected to average 16 PPG. It’s between those two, or maybe even Bogut. Any thoughts? Who will be the leading scorer? This time it’s up to you fans to do some analyzing.
