David Robinson says Golden State have a small window to be successful

The Golden State Warriors are the runaway favourites to lift the Larry O'Brien trophy next year following the addition of Kevin Durant in the summer. 

Having given up a 3-1 lead in dramatic style during the finals, the Warriors somehow managed to improve on their roster by acquiring the 2014 MVP Durant.

A lot of fans and so-called 'experts' have been quick to dismiss the challenge of the other 29 franchises in the NBA. 

However, David Robinson, who won two titles alongside Tim Duncan at the San Antonio Spurs, believes Golden State could face problems in the same ilk as the the Miami Heat during their 'big three' era. He also feels there is a relatively short window for Durant to achieve his goal.

During four seasons together, the trio of Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were only able to win two rings as they struggled to put it together in the finals of 2011 and 2014.

"It takes time, you look at what happened with LeBron, Wade, and Bosh," Robinson told Zach Frydenlund of Complex. "It took them a year or two to get their legs underneath them and figure things out and even then that run was relatively short.

"So if you're able to put together a team like this, you're generally going to have a short window because you can't pay all those guys to keep them together. There's the short window that's going to end relatively quickly and it's not as easy as going out to play."
