Stairway Man, you touch upon an interesting topic: how the other teams in the NBA are attempting to emulate/copy the Warriors vs. developing a strategy, coaching philosophy, players, and a system to both win and possibly beat the Warriors. Other than San Antonio and now Minnesota, I do not see the o...

The chess move for Cleveland, Lebron, and Boston would be for the Celtics to package a bunch of their draft picks and Al Horford; get another team involved to move a veteran, and pick up Lebron to team up with Thomas, Crowder, Hayward, and young talent. This trade also gives Cleveland draft picks to...

This ownership group, front office, coaching staff, and roster have created a culture and atmosphere where players are willing to take less salary (than what they could get in the open market) in order to compete to win championships! For us fans and members of this board who remember the miserable ...

I am down for bringing back Bogut. I think he is ultimately gonna sign with Utah or San Antonio maybe. Andrew Bogut on the Warriors is a negative locker-room disruption. The man is unreliable, an offensive liability, unable to defend the pick-and-roll on defense, and can never be relied upon. The c...

Stairway, I think you're trying to say that most of Bogut's injuries were fluky (not like backs or knees that could be a problem for life), and they were, but he's just had so many. I was a big Bogut supporter and defended against the criticism of his health using that same logic, but the time has ...

Wasn't last year's 1st rounder a Center Damian Jones, a second-year player and last year's first round draft pick, is a long, lean, but still very green, center, who also is projected to play power forward. Jones looked pretty good in the last summer league game with a couple of blocks: https://str...

Apparently Clark is going to Chicago. Would like to see how much he will get signed for and what the Warriors were offering because he will a backup like he was here. Saw a video saying that Nick Young is a serious consideration to replace Clark and he is very interested as well. That would be a dy...

Neither Pachulia nor Bogut can defend the pick-and-roll.

Also, Bogut has a history of being a "no show" whenever the team needed him, especially in the playoffs.

Views: 606
Livingston is a "long-bodied" point guard defender who can switch on the pick-and-roll and cover both the 4 and 5 on the perimeter and in the paint, too. Livingston is an excellent decision maker on offense and moves well without the ball, too. If the team loses Ian Clarke (probably to the...

Great thread, Stairway Man! It would be interesting to see if a smart coach can devise a style/system to combat the Warrior style/system. I find it almost laughable how teams are trying to duplicate what the Warriors are doing on offense with its interchangeable pieces and 3-ball threat. A team lik...

Without Draymond Green, the Golden State Warriors are in big trouble.

Can Damian Jones, a second-year player who had limited playing time last season, 2nd round rookie draft pick Jordan Bell, and free agent rookie Chris Boucher adequately replace ZaZa Pachulia, JaVale McGee, and James Michael McAdoo? Also, does Kevon Looney look "slow," even "old" ...
