Kinda shocking to see Dallas, a playoff team, have its top rebounder average only 7.4rpg AND their top passer with only 5.5apg. You'd think it would be higher on both categories.

They seemed to always do it as a team, that's what I admired about them so much

The first of our Back-to-back-to-back is the hardest one... need to lose for the tank patrol to be happy.
The four games after this one are all very winable:
Rocktes - Wolves - Hornets - Spurs.

Yeah, we're almost there! Right at the cusp of top 7..I think we'll finish bottom 6 for sure. Right now it doesn't take a genius to know that tanking is the right thing to do in this case.

Becaus they pretty much have the #1 seed all wrapped up since they have the tie breaker with OKC. So no Parker, no TD, no Ginobli.
They rest of the team will just be going through the motions.

The team will find it hard to beat any team with the roster we have right now. Even if the Spurs rest their big three, their roster still has some good players.

The team might look awful on paper, but they compete every game. Again they are doing it. They got spanked one game only I think in the last three weeks.

It could just be me, but it's scary to think about how good the Warriors can be once we get our established starting lineup healthy..we just need to replace Wright with someone better (Odom maybe??) and we're set. I know the best player to draft if we get the draft would be a SF..but hey. I'm not giving my hopes up..but I have high hopes for next year.
