People are not quick to "rip on our player." Dude, it has been 12 seasons since this team has been in the playoffs. Do you understand what that means? This team has had 12 straight years in the lottery. If anything, the fanbase has been quite patient, more so than any franchise in the Association. The Oracle attendance is always near sold out or sold out; compare this to Atlanta or even the Clippers (who were the benchmark for futility before the Warriors ascended/descended to the throne).
If our fan base is so great than tell me why we can't keep any good players around. After the season is over there is a very good chance that players like MB, MP, TM, and maybe AB want be around. If there not I don't blame them one bit. The problems are not with the players its the first office.
Dunleavy has been here for 5 seasons; Richarson 6; Pietrus 4; Murphy 6; Foyle 10. These guys have been here for quite some time.
The problem is just the opposite of what you are expousing. The team has kept Dunleavy, Murphy, and Foyle around here too long. And yes, the front office is the problem.
