That's like... retarded. As much I'd like to see KD or Oden spotting a Warriors jersey next season, it just can't. The Warriors need to make the playoffs this year. The lottery is somewhat of an annual holiday for the Warriors these past years. I'm tired of it, I'm tired of the disappointing draftees besides Jrich, Monta, and POB in the making. The playoffs are not only what the fans need, it's what the Warriors as a team need. And plus at best, we'd end up with the 8th-10th spot. That is not worth getting.

We've drafted well, bro. Ike was a good pick (he just didn't fit), POB OK pick, Monta and Biedrins excellent pick, J-Rich and Tmurph good picks (considering Murph was 14), ARENAS, and Pietrus was an OK pick considering he wasn't picked that high.

:oops: Forgot 'bout those guys. What I was trying to say was that I was tired of the lottery. I want to see some basketball after the first three weeks in April! I believe the Warriors can do it... but for some reason, Monta is the only one who consistently performs well.

It's cause we need a PG. A real one. With Baron back, and J-Rich + new guys we will kick ass. Otherwise, we suck.

Too late to do that. We're going to pick 9th (at best), barring a miracle in the lottery.

If the teeam only wins say, 20% of their remaining games they could well finish with the 5th to 7th worst record in the nba. Hawks, Bobcats, Sonics and Kings have all got some wins recently and so the Warriors could fall really far, a good or a bad thing but it could happen after this road trip even if they lose them all

Can you elaborate on who these "new guys" are you think will make this team a playoff caliber team?

This team does NOT need a point guard. That is for sure. Whether Baron or Monta is playing the 1, this team is fine in that department. What this team needs is to play defense and rebound. Getting the current players to either put forth the effort to play better defense and rebound or probably a better bet would be to bring in a few hard nosed players to toughen this team up. Andris is a good center that will only get better, but he needs help from the 4 position right now and he is NOT getting any help whatsoever from Al Harrington.

Unfortunately, there is not likely a quick fix to the Warriors problems. Unless some big trades are made, this team will likely be close to the same next season as I do not see any younger players on the current roster contributing much more than they are now to immensely improve the team. We will see though.

I meant we need another PG to spell Baron. Monta is not ready yet. And at almost full strength (Baron, J-Rich, Beans, + new guys Jax/Harrington minimum) then we can make judgment. But I'm pretty sure we will kick ass.

Strategically, I'd rather see if the warriors try to win on this stretch of road games. If they can't win, then they position themselves to get the 1st pick in the draft. Give JRich and BD some time to rest their bodies and give key minutes to the bench players to give them some playing experience.

Honestly, the way we've been playing the past couple of years have been painfully at mediocre. Not good enough to make the playoffs and not good enough to get a good chance at the top pick. (of which I hear is a loaded class for big men)

We'll have to trade for either of those two.
