With their surge to a NBA title and guard who earned a regular season MVP award, a number of Warriors players have been involved in the Silicon Valley culture that their team attracts to games and will likely continue to bring in when they move to their new arena in San Francisco. “You’ll see Larry Ellison, you’ll see Jack Dorsey, you’ll see Adam Bain,” said Harrison Barnes, listing off the names of the co-founder of Oracle and Twitter executives. “You’ll see all these guys courtside that they’re walking down the street people might not say ‘oh my god that’s so-and-so’ but if you know who they are and you know what they do, there’s obviously well-respected in their fields.”

Now, four of their players — Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes — are working out with Team USA during a three-day minicamp here in Vegas. Curry, the reigning MVP, said Wednesday he finds it “funny” that the Warriors aren’t considered the favorites to repeat as champions. And yes, that means he doesn’t find it funny. “We obviously are the champs, and you’ve got to think that we’re gonna be a better team next year with our experiences that we’ve had, and we’re not the favorites,” Curry said. “Obviously there’s been a lot of noise, teams retooling and trying to boost their lineups. You have teams that haven’t set foot on the floor yet and are heavily favored to kick us off our throne.”

Golden State has $72 million committed in guaranteed salaries for 2016-17. Can the Warriors stay at a championship level with high salaries and still have the resources to improve? The new TV money and rising cap and luxury tax will offset these salaries. But remember Stephen Curry, who has been underpaid the last few years, is due to be a free agent in 2017. If you factor in Barnes at near-max money and Curry at the max, you are looking potentially at $80 million in salaries for four players – Curry, Barnes, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. Don’t be surprised to see a player of Barnes caliber entertaining offer sheets from multiple teams.
