Who is their slasher? Who can drive and get to the line?

We need to cut down on turnovers, and stop fouling. Period.
From "we believe", to "we belong", to "we gon beatcho ass!"

Well we are doomed if we keep turning the ball over like this. It's like they keep forgetting to be careful with their possessions.

Actually, what the team may be missing is the go-to-player who wants the ball at the end of a close game and is not afraid to take the last shot. We had that guy last year in Jack; we may have that guy again already on this roster; he just needs to step up and show everyone who he is.

Yes, I was thinking of the same player!

He looks fearless when he has the ball.

Did the '86 Celtics need a slasher?

When your starting 5 has size, brilliant basketball IQs, and nuts-on shooters, then suddenly everyone becomes a slasher. Harrison Barnes is no Allen Iverson, but when the perimeter defense is crashing the 3-point line and the bigs are half-watching Lee or Bogut, suddenly the lane becomes wide open. The addition of Iguodala has made a slasher more of a luxury than a need. Last year, a slasher would have helped. This year, the team moves the ball well enough to get the rock close to the bucket without necessarily requiring a one-on-none game.

What do you think about Chuck's opinion? Says the Warriors don't have inside scoring and need it. he also said OKC needs it as well. I also heard the Warriors might be looking to add one more big.

I would love to see the warriors a part of the Kyle Lowry rental sweepstakes in Toronto. Excellent backup point guard for our team, he brings depth and insurance in case Curry goes down. I'm willing to trade pretty much anyone on our bench not name Barnes to get him. Toronto wants Lowry gone soon as they are prepping for Tank Mode due to all their injuries.

But Backup PG and Backup Bigman are the two biggest needs. I feel like we need someone better than Jermaine. Maybe KG if the Nets continue to suck (granted he looks old)!

Kyle Lowry is a starter. No way we get him without giving up one of the top 6, especially since we mortgaged most of our future picks to Utah for eating our trash.

Most attractive package we can offer (minus Barnes & the starting 5) is Draymond Green, Festus Ezeli, and Mo Speights for Lowry and a bad contract. And even then, I think Toronto can get a better deal.

This team's gameplan is learning to play together, not adding or subtracting talent. Our cap is frozen and our team is pretty damn complete.

Iguodala. Barnes.

this team is so balanced man. and now we got Curry and Klay becoming better finishers at the hoop. oh yeah and then we got mr reliable David Lee for points in the paint. oh yeah and then Bogut is becoming more aggressive. oh yeah and 1 thru 5 can all pass the ball. Can I just say, I LOVE THIS TEAM. :cheers:

Seems like Curry, Klay, Iguodala and Barnes can all slash enough. I'm happy with that.
