Worst comes to worst Beal is an asset on draft night in a deal for an igudala or josh smith and if we he keep him we hold on to a player who possibly could become a excellent volume scorer and contributer along the comparisions of hopefully an Eric Gordon type. At #7 though if a potential franchise big man comes in like Drummond who can be mentored by consumate pros such as Dlee and Bogut are i think thats too sweet of a deal to pass up to obtain a small and still defenisivly challenged backcourt.
Drummond and PJ3 scare me. I've had enough potential with motivational problems in the past 6 years (Anthony Randolph, Patrick O'Bryant, Jeremy Tyler). I'm beginning to think they never get past something like that if it's already proven to be an issue before the draft.
And I'm not discounting what Beal has as far as talent; I'm just asking in a bigger picture sense: are you okay with the Warriors going back to the small backcourt?
Can they win in the playoffs with a couple guys that are 6'3" (or potentially smaller, if they draft a PG)? Is there anyone who thinks the Monta-Steph pairing was inconclusive and that a tiny backcourt can get to the big show in the NBA?
