cool 1st vote. anyway, were only 3 games out of a spot even after our horrendous play.

we aint 6 or 7 games out. if we had BD or J-Rich still injured I would say tank. But we got everyone full strength we should try to put a nice win steak together of about 4 or 5 and were right back in it.

Win.

See if we are a viable team with the full lineup. The game against Detroit was a nice change, but we already trashed them earlier this year. The game against the Nugs tomorrow is huge, with a win making the W's a full game closer to playoffs.

Win, even if we don't make it our trade value for players is boosted.

Everyone forgets what team they are talking about :roll:

This is the Golden State Warriors! Things wil go bad, not worse!

Lose games now, hopefuly get 1st or 2nd pick, getting a franchise player for once OR trade a bunch of these "maybe will be great" players and the lottery pick (not the 1st or 2nd obviously) for a GREAT big and build around him and two of the youngsters currently here (Monta, JRich or Biedrins)!

Other than Monta, JRich and Biedrins, this team won't win! Take it to bits PROPERLY and gat better pieces to surround the 3 CORE players

I'd go with win. But just because it's too late to tank properly. I don't think we'll be able to make the playoffs with so few games left, but we won't get a much better draft pick, so we might as well try to win as much as we can.

Golden State 27-35
Seattle Seattle 25-35
Portland 25-36
Philadelphia 22-38
Milwaukee 22-39
Charlotte 22-39
Atlanta 22-39


The team could still finish behind all the above teams. With some tanking ofcourse :mrgreen:
That'd mean 3rd worst record but even just 6th worst record would mean much more and put the team in a much better position in the lottery and draft

Doesn't matter. This is a decent rookie pool with lots of good players. Tanking should be done only for the 1st-2nd spots, not the 7th.

The higher the better as the better chance of getting a top 2 pick by the lottery :wink:

Also, The higher you are picking, the more control you have over who you can pick and by the 5th pick there should still be some great players left, maybe one of the Wright boys, who would be great tradeable pieces!

Well, that's true. I just don't think that missing our last chance to get to the playoffs (probably not, but still undecided) is worth having a 2% more in the lottery...

As much as I'd like the team to make the playpffs, they're not going to, they never do and this time will be no different.

It is the fact that having a higher position in the draft alows you more choice to pick who you want that is the thing. The team could get a PF that makes a difference and allows some real changes to take place

Tank this season was an experimental one. One that will be even better with a higher draft pick and everyone healthy next year! This will be the lowest draft pick we've had in year except for the MDJ pick...

Rest BD knee a bit more as well as Jackson surf toe!!! We'd wouldn't get by the 1st round facing Dallas or Phoenix! The rest of our squad is just too tired right now to make a push toward the playoffs and then face a great team in the 1st round!

With Portland, Seattle and maybe Atlanta playing a bit better the W's could get a pick lower than those teams...

Get in a position to draft a stud for the future because this will probably be the last time the W's will be in this situation in drafting early in a potentially great draft! Look what happen to San Antonion in the 90's when they finished with bad records and drafted Robinson and Duncan. They immediately became the team to beat!!!

Getting a Wright, Noah, Horton, or maybe a Durant or if Oden does come out will make the W's instant playoff contenders with this team right now!

Great, except because those two are free agents, you know...
