Still a 50 win team or more
with amare, ellis, jackson and randolph....you dont really NEED a natural PG. If ellis can become a DECENT PG, then that should be enough.
Nelson successful teams have had great PGs, like THardaway, Nash and Baron. The team needs a great distributor to make it all work
Edit: I just re-read my post, and I'm kinda just spewing random thoughts, it's not really directed at anybody.
Nelson said that Curry is the most talented pg he's seen since nash
Beli's picture is up on the banner for a reason. people were impressed with the flashes he showed us before the injury. I love Azu as much as the next member on this board, but lets face it, he's not exactly "special" or "irreplaceable". would I like to keep him? Fvck yeah! but if it's between keeping him, or being able to pick up a quality big man we desperately need (assuming we get amare) I'd reluctantly send azu away.
actually let me put it differently: there are many azu's in the league, but we have him for a good price. I don't think it's azu that people are necessarily enamored with, it's his cheap contract that gives us remarkable bang for buck. finding talent like azu at the same price isn't impossible, but it's pretty hard.
it's just hard to see Azu getting any descent playing time behind Jak and mags though.
Tom Tolbert (or brooks can't remember) on the radio said it best today. "the warriors need to keep/get people who can take care of, and distribute the ball." our young team needs as much BB IQ as it can get, and holding onto Beli is one way to do that.
Here's what I'd like to do: give them speedy expiring contract, Biedrins, Wright and a future1st round pick (unprotected). put beli as PG. let Acie and Marco duke it out for back up. I've always seen CJ as a 2 guard. if we resign him he definitely sits behind morrow (morrows slow, so CJ might prove to be a great counterbalance)
Curry / Marco or Law
Monta / Morrow / CJ
Jak / Maggs / Azu
Amare / AR
Turiaf or (new FA... preferably a big rebounder!)
