In NBA news, some teams and players may have discovered a new way to end the Golden State Warriors' dominance. It is by disassembling the main core of the reigning champions. The majority of Golden State's best players will be available this offseason. 

In a list provided by HoopsHype.com, some of the most prominent free agents this 2017 are from the Warriors. Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and Andre Iguodala could all be on the market this summer. 

It is likely that Golden State plans to re-sign the three. All of them played crucial roles in last season's successful championship bid. Durant was even named the 2017 NBA Finals MVP.

However, trying to keep the core intact will be a difficult task for the Warriors. As early as now, there are organizations and individuals trying to tear the group apart. 

ESPN recently reported that many teams are eyeing Iguodala this offseason. Some of these are the Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers, Minnesota Timberwolves, Orlando Magic, Philadelphia 76ers, San Antonio Spurs, and the Utah Jazz. The good news for Golden State is that there is no word yet if Iguodala will hold meetings with the interested parties.

As mentioned, there are also players attempting to disband the Warriors. Perhaps the most significant as of this moment is Paul George of the Indiana Pacers. George reportedly called one-half of the Splash Brothers, Klay Thompson, and asked him about playing together for the Los Angeles Lakers. 

George is from California and expressed several times in the past his desire to be with the Lakers. The purple and gold franchise remains one of the top contenders to sign or add him in the future. Thompson, on the other hand, is from Los Angeles. 

It is uncertain at this point if the Warriors can maintain the unit that helped them win two titles in the last three seasons. Likely, they would be able to. These players want nothing more than championship rings, and they are already in the right place.
