Last season when the Warriors' starting five was on the court — Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, David Lee and Andrew Bogut — they outscored their opponents by 15.5 points per 100 possessions.

That is impressive. It also means their bench wasn’t nearly as impressive (as a team the Warriors were +4.8 per 48).

Iguodala brings a real defensive presence to the starting five — they were 6.3 points per 100 possessions better on defense when he played.

Could Steve Kerr take that out of the starting lineup? 

Although he will likely will keep the successful starting unit together, he’ll look at his options, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
