Unlike the San Antonio Spurs and Chicago Bulls, whose championship teams rank near the 2015 and 2017 Warriors teams, none of the Golden State players who have played the most minutes over that period were among the top five picked in the draft.

In the wake of the Warriors' second National Basketball Association title in three years, The Chronicle is analyzing the team player-by-player. In the Warriors' first two games against Portland, he totaled 45 points on 17-for-19 shooting.

Irving averaged a career-best 25.2 points, along with 5.8 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals over 35.1 minutes per game during 72 regular-season games, and that productivity continued throughout the 2017 NBA Playoffs. And in the season after that, it will be Durant's turn for a super max that reports said will pay slightly higher than what Curry will get. His double-double average (11.0 ppg and 10.2 rpg) and highly emotional play in the Finals would have won him back some of his critics.
