Which position needs the most improvement on the Warrior's starting 5?

81%
Center - Adonal needs some back-up (or, better yet, lets make HIM a back-up to someone better)
17
10%
Power Forward - Troy and Ike are decent, but we need someone who's gonna make an impact right away
2
5%
Small Forward - I'm tired of waiting on Mike, Calbert's too old, and Pietrus needs more development time. We need help.

No votes
Shooting guard - Jason Richardson needs a more capable back-up for when he sits down. Mickael is good, but lets look for other options.
5%
Point Guard - ... honestly, I dunno why you'd pick this one. Baron Davis is an all-star and Fisher would start on pretty much any other NBA team without Bibby, Kidd, Nash, or someone of the like. Explain yourself for picking this.

Seriously doubt Foyle would come close to being able to effectively guard shaq but he is a good shot blocker and any guard that drives ends up meeting him

He's done it before! Foyle can guard Shaq; he's proven it!

As long as he doesn't foul out...

Yeah, but who'd foul out first: Bierdins or Foyle?

As long as Foyle can block shots the way he does then he is an asset at times because he can change a game somewhat. In the long run though he just is no where near the answer at Center

No doubt; an answer, he is not. But, for now, he's a valued part of the team... we're undeniably worse without him.

Diogu might be an answer at blocking shots. If he can then Biedrins can be used more often without losing defense

Nobody on the roster can block shots as well as Foyle. Diogu and Biedrins are good, but Foyle is legit.

Hasn't really been seen what Diogu can do. I have read that he is an amazing shot blocker!

Yes, but the NBA is a ton different than the Pac-10. I wouldn't be surprised if he only averaged 1 or less his rookie year...

With that 7ft 4in wingspan, 2 - 3 blocks a game is not unreasonable!

I dont knw if biendrins will evolve into a dominant center in the future, and foyle looks like he has no room for improvement, so i think we really should go for jamal magloire of the hornets, he is a bonafide center that we could really benefit from.

But not realistic. Very few players block 3 shots a game. Putting a 6'8" prospect into the elite shot-blocking class of the NBA before he plays one game is a bit over the edge.

You know that might not be so bad if they are willing to do another trade with the Warriors and they are willing to take Dunleavy and no more than one other player that is little used
