The way I see it, not only would Carter comming to Oaktown strengthen the team and put up high numbers, it also would have enrichend the Warriors Franchise as a whole, therefore increasing the appeal of other players wanting to come to Golden State and increasing championship contendability.
In the end, this is basketball and a business. Unfortunately GS concentrated on the business aspect for too long and made some bad decision along the way. The good news is the managment appears to be on track and has the goal of creating a marketable successful team rather than a quick buck. Everything comes in time.
Carter didn't really get people to go to toronto, in fact TMAC was there and wanted to leave... i don't see Carter turning around the franchise, but it would have gotten them some recognition, but who knows.. there were some bigger wastes of drafts, jamison is a solid player, but Vonteego, fuller, Smith.... at least when they didn't get carter, they got some Value in Antawn.
