At this point in the season there is a mystery surrounding the warriors but majority of us have put certain pieces together and we can draw conclusions.
For me its a team that lacks identity, we know about our shooters ( Leading the NBA shooting 3's at .393%), but that is not enough of a weapon to carry a team to success. Moves me to my next point can the warriors diversify there offensive play calling, specifically a more inside outside game ( as mentioned before by others, and what I had hoped for from the beginning of the season).
I know Bogut is coming back from injury and is slowly getting back to shape and fluidity, also its been mentioned that he is not known for his offensive game, but the truth is the warriors are going to need to run some plays through him on the post eventually.
Also Lee, can he command double teams ? I know he has the motor to get rebounds, and he is capable of hitting 17 foot jumper but can he command a double team on the post, because it is badly needed. I know this is a 3 point shooting team but they need to have that inside outside game.
Moves me to my next point, watch the Spurs tonight, no team in the NBA moves the ball the way they do, and implement an inside/outside game like them.
Truth is if warriors need to maximize their talent, they need to go to that inside/outside game, run when they can, but they will need more ball movement and did I say slow the game down a bit.
As far as defense leave the zone alone.

I hear what you are saying, and I think this involves having Bogut on the team more than anything, when he is on the team we seem to lose our ability to run, he is always trailing. Eventually the team will have to somewhat cater to Bogut in the sense he needs to be invloved on the offense. I was listening to the radio and it was mentioned that Bogut was four feet away from the basket and instead of shooting he passed the ball out. If a player is that deep in the post you take that shot, simple as that.
As far as inside outside game is concerned I have watched Barnes and he creates many mismatches because he of his size and strenghth, there are times he can easily overpower his man, he can be a canidate for a inside out game. Bogut when he is at full strength has to be, as well as Lee on certain occasions, although I see Lee more a ferocious attacker of the rim.
Overall like Rocky is saying, don't abandon running, do it at the right opportunity. All am saying is they need to add more of an inside out game, to space the floor for the shooters.
Lol those jerseys had sleaves, but we won right. I heard they are 30% lighter. They are also 30% not likeable. Warriors NBA trend setters.
Nice follow up 32, an I am in general agreement with all the points. Especially the main point, having the shooters work off the Bigs. We already shoot lights out with Curry and Thompson, if we can get the double on Lee, it will only open the perimeter more. I can say we are a guard dominated team with Lee cleaning up on the boards, and getting some, Iso, but we do infact need more Lee Isos, like you said force feed the guy, don't see anything bad coming from that.
Also would like to utilize more of Barnes, I know he has been struggling lately but he needs more touches. I can see him working in the blocks as well, overpowering his opponent, and dishing out when need be.
And am all for limiting the Lee/Landry combo, point in case against the Pacers, Landry on Hibbert ? Lee on Hibbert, so the pacers just kept dropping the ball down there for the mis-match, not a good look.
As far as the zone, don't mind using it in limited cases as you mention, 10% is a fair enough. Its just when they play it majority of the game and its obvioulsy not working ex: Houstoun game. They look lost and give too much space on the perimeter for the opponents.
For future success we need to start playing with struture. And to add am all for running, thats a giving, any chance they can run do it.
