The Golden State Warriors have had an amazing start to NBA free agency after winning the 2017 NBA Finals. The team just signed forward Omri Casspi to the veteran minimum and former Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young to a one-year, $5.2 million contract.

This comes after the Warriors were able to keep an integral piece of their team, forward Andre Iguodala.

The offseason has been so impressive, Oakland Raiders wide receiver K.J. Brent had to tweet to express his excitement.

Like other NBA fans, Brent doesn’t see how any team will be able to compete with Golden State. Their greatest competitor, the Cleveland Cavaliers, haven’t made a move to get better and will be one year older with an already aging team.

On the other hand, the Warriors have kept the core intact and have already brought in two impact players for relatively cheap with Young and Casspi.

Hopefully, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has taken notes on how the Warriors are run, for Oakland has a similar situation with an incredible core of young talent that could be dominant for years to come.
