Ball Scrutiny: The Warriors in the Realm of the Rainbow Country

How dangerous is the Warriors three-point shooting? What is the truth behind its firepower? Are they really the best 3-point shooters in the league?

Shockingly, the defending champs are just sitting in the top three in terms of three-point shooting as of the last season.

It is their rival, the Cleveland Cavaliers who is in the top spot. Tying up to their performance beyond the arc is one of their toughest barricades in the west, San Antonio Spurs. Cleveland averaged 39 % while the Spurs and Warriors both with 38.4. It is quite close at first glance, but small decimal values in terms of comparing averages are relatively huge.

That explains why these three teams were considered to be the best in the league. In fact, the Warriors faced the San Antonio Spurs in the western conference finals.

But if three-point shooting, which is known to be Warriors main weapon, is not the best in the league, how come that they overthrew the Cleveland Cavaliers last season?


Warriors ‘field shooting’ spelled the difference and allowed them to prevail in the league in the last two seasons in three years, they clung on to the number one spot in terms of shooting, averaging 49.4 percent last season, whereas the Cavs drops down at the 3rd spot with 47.5 while the San Antonio skid to number 7.

The Warriors’ 3 point shooting is just a single pillar that frequently saves them from games that they are the one trying to catch up with the score of their opponent. The real deal is their two-point shooting, averaging 55.7% last season.

Now we know the real strength of the Warriors shooting firepower. But despite being just in number three in terms of three-point shooting, they still have the considered to be best shooters in the league – the Splash Brothers – Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, the Warriors still have hopes up high to be the best 3 point shooter this season. They managed to be champs even not topping the 3 point shoot-out, what more possibilities may come if their efficiency from beyond the arc will bolster?

Just what you can do or buy with the bonuses given to the players?
Last week, Ginebra captured their first back to back Governors Cup Championship. A few days ago,  they celebrated with the fans and today, Ginebra players are either buying a new car, a vacation house or enjoying their hard earned bonus money. 
But just how much money did the players actually get?

According to a good friend and a Ginebra insider, each players were given different amounts of bonuses depending on their salaries and performances during the finals.

The big boss of SMC is looking to make an impression to the players to keep them motivated or in Ginebra term "Ganado".

We were told that the equivalent amount could be 10x more their…
