Reviving Stephen Curry era with Warriors depends on one key aspect, details Shaun Livingston

The Golden State Warriors have been very busy these past few days as they are revving up for the upcoming NBA Draft. They own the second overall pick and it’s still unclear what they’ll do with it. Some experts say they should keep it and get a blue-chip prospect, while others believe they should trade it for a more established star.

But one thing’s clear: The Warriors want to get back to their winning ways.

For former Dubs guard Shaun Livingston, who is now the team’s new director for player affairs and engagement, he wants to revive the recent dynasty they built.

According to an article by NBC Sports, Livingston told The Morning Roast radio show that the Warriors need to get more role players like him to be able to reclaim the success they had in winning three titles in five years.

“I think it’s just being able to find contributions all throughout the team. Even when you are top-heavy a little bit, there comes a point in the games where it could be a long game, and then you get into the playoffs as well, it becomes even more paramount. Playing seven-game series, you’re looking for contributions throughout the lineup. So, I think it’s just shoring up,” Shaun Livingston said.

Livingston, who retired prior to the start of last season, also admitted the Warriors need to add some veteran role players to help the development of young guys like Eric Paschall, Jordan Poole, Damion Lee, and the possible no. 2 pick.

“There’s also, too, last year with the team going through changes, becoming younger, maybe looking at trying to get veteran pieces or maybe certain guys to come in. But it’s just looking to try to get contributions all throughout.”

The Warriors finished with the worst record this past season, winning only 15 games as they got ravaged by injuries to Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
