FrnCourt
Andrew Bogut is the projected answer to a few problems. He's a center who defends and rebounds. He will fit better than any running mate David Lee has had. Harrison Barnes may start right away at small forward.

B

BckCourt
Both young starters will be closely tracked. Klay Thompson for continued progress at shooting guard after an encouraging rookie season and Stephen Curry in his recovery from ankle surgery.

B-

Defense
While Bogut gets most of the attention for his varied offensive skill set and rebounding, he is one of the league's best defensive centers. Bogut finally joining the lineup will be a much-needed boost for the Warriors.

C-

Bench
A successful offseason beefed up the reserve unit: Jarrett Jack as backup point guard, re-signing Brandon Rush for shooting guard and small forward, Draymond Green at small forward and Festus Ezeli at center.

B

Coaching
Rookie coach Mark Jackson had the lockout, injuries, a major trade, no center and his own learning curve. Second-year coach Mark Jackson has no excuses, health willing. Time to produce.

Summary

Not that the locals are frustrated or anything, but they booed the owner at halftime ceremonies to retire Chris Mullin's jersey. Patience has run out.

The new optimism, just in time, revolves around a healthy Bogut being on schedule to finally join the team, Curry being on schedule to also be at the start of camp after the latest ankle setback, and Barnes joining as the lottery-pick small forward. The starting unit is better than before. The depth is better than before. Playoffs or bust.
