The Golden State Warriors are getting seriously close to being very competitive, and ready to compete for a championship, but they still need to add solid packages to get to that level.  They are young and look like they need one more piece to get to the big stage. Follow @HansOhrner 1. Pau Gasol An experienced big man with an effective offensive game. Can become the starting power forward or center for the Warriors. 2. Chris Bosh Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports Another possible big man to become the starting power forward or an athletic center.  Has a solid mid-range and three point shot; may add more firepower to Golden State’s offense. 3. Eric Bledsoe Solid guard with offensive skills that can contribute to Golden State’s future.  However, it may have to be off the bench as Golden State already has two effective guards. 4. Gordon Hayward Effective range and slashing ability; can serve as a great backup to Andre Iguodala. 5. Lance Stephenson Ron Hoskins/Getty Images Good defensive ability and may serve as a solid backup to any guard position as well as to the small forward position.  Attitude may be a problem however.
