The Golden State Warriors are hoping that their preseason trip to China will create positive camaraderie moving into the season.

"One of the positives we can really bring out of this is to come together as a team," David Lee said. "That's as important, in my opinion, as what we do on the court in this preseason. Because we saw it last year. We made the final four in the West and we didn't have one of the top four rosters in the West, talent-wise. We played together, and we had the best chemistry in the league. We need to repeat that this year."

"Any time you can experience that," Mark Jackson said, "see how someone else does things, how they live, it's a learning tool. It's a great experience for us. I value it."
