What if I had wanted to trade Monta for a while now? Am I allowed to continue to feel that way, or should I change my mind? :mrgreen:

Morrow needs to continue to be part of our future here. He is already a lights out shooter, and his game develops all the time.

no you don't, you just don't. keep monta and curry on the team, let Ellison wipe away the sins of the front office (by firing them) this summer, and wait for a truly great team to emerge

Curry update
two rebs away from a triple double

I can agree with that. I can get down with everyone except tolliver, hunter, and unfortunately watson. as much as I like the guy (watson) we need to trade for a defensive guard like sefalosha, ime udoka, tony allen, a young lindsey hunter, etc

It could work, but if something emerges involving Monta that can greatly upgrade our team either at the trade deadline or during the offseason, I think we should go for it. Basically, I don't see him as untouchable and I hope that we are dangling him privately for other teams in order to see what we can get in return.

Watson doesn't want to be here anyway. He said so during the summer. That's why he never looks happy, I am sure of it. He loathes every minute that he stays here.

He loathed the contract, & how the dubs sandwiched him into a cheap deal.
-making it know they will match any offer (he was restricted remember)
-offering him either a long cheap deal
-or a short cheap deal in which he took

CJ doesn't hate the warriors, if it wasn't for the dubs, he'd still be down in texas w/ the Rio Grande vipers. beggars can't be choosers... unless they're ass holes

Also how many teams are crazy enough to put him as SG? he's gotten a Mo'nique Ass Load of playing time and he knows it.


THE BIG QUESTION THOUGH.... is AR tradeable?
I’m not sure if Anthony Randolph rents or owns his in-season home here in the Bay Area, so I don’t know which piece of advice to give him. It’s either:
a) Call your landlord and find out what you need to do to ensure to get your security deposit back.
or
b) Call a good real-estate agent and get started on staging that sucker, because with this market, it could take months to sell.
Whatever is the case, it appears obvious from general manager Larry Riley’s comments Saturday night that Randolph is on the block and that the Warriors expect to give up the second-year forward in the near future.
I was working the Oklahoma City locker room prior to Saturday’s game, so I didn’t have a chance to join the Warriors’ beat writers in quizzing Riley about his decision to keep former D-League big man Anthony Tolliver at the cost of releasing Speedy Claxton and his $5.2 million expiring contract, less than two weeks before the NBA trade deadline.
Marcus Thompson II came through with a full transcript, however, and it makes fascinating reading, especially with regards to Randolph’s future. Here’s the critical passage, with regards to Randolph:
Q: Will you have to trade one of your four highest-paid players?
We’re not trading Monta Ellis, and we’re not trading Stephen Curry. And if we have to trade some of the other players, we’re going to look at it. It’s very difficult to take what we have and trade for a star. So we have to trade for a good player and get some help for our team. There will be somebody who (we) will probably trade that the fan base won’t necessarily like. … We do have to move a guy. We do have to move a guy to get where we want to go.

The emphasis is mine, because it’s the crux of the matter. Who else qualifies as a fan favorite, if you’re excluding Ellis and Curry? I suppose you could make a case for Andris Biedrins, but he still has a relatively large amount of cash left on his deal (especially with salary Armageddon coming up with the new CBA negotiations) and thus is not as attractive, IMHO, to other teams.
If it isn’t Biedrins, the only other logical inference is that it’s Randolph, whose tantalizing talent has stoked the fans’ ardor but who has lacked the consistency to generate the same feelings from the coaching staff. The only thing missing here is a “FOR SALE” advertisement on the billboard next to the Arena along 880: “Slightly used power forward, not yet able to legally drink, still growing into his frame, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, fixer-upper jump shot. Want unprotected first-round pick, Caron Butler, OBO. Call L. Riley at 510-GSW-HOOP.”
The other aspect in the Randolph-is-leaving theory is that, without Claxton’s cash, the Warriors have only $6.85 million left in expirings (that’s the combined total of Raja Bell and Devean George; Chris Hunter and Anthony Tolliver are also technically expiring deals, but since they aren’t eligible to be traded until after the deadline, they’re worthless right now). For Golden State to make a play for a $10-$12 million player (such as Butler) is almost certainly going to require the inclusion of a legitimate asset to make up the salary-cap balance. If it’s not Ellis and Curry … hello again, Anthony Randolph.
We’ve been over this ground before, but I’ll reiterate: To me, dealing Randolph would be a mistake. I understand the argument — as promulgated recently by Bruce Jenkins — that a star is a star is a star, from the moment they hit the ground in this league (“ready to deal the cards right now,” as Bruce put it). But Randolph is still the SECOND-YOUNGEST PLAYER IN THE LEAGUE. He improved most of his numbers from his rookie season, and his field-goal percentage — one of my biggest concerns for me — ramped up every month until his season-ending high ankle sprain.
It might very well turn out that Randolph never becomes Josh Smith, which is my top end for him. But his trade value has been driven into the ground by a combination of factors over these last 18 months, some of them Randolph’s fault and more of them the result of the team’s vacillations and eccentricities. Shipping him out at this point, practically as a throw-in, would be the worst-case scenario.
The Warriors would be better served to keep Randolph until next season begins and salvage something out of the situation. But if I’m Anthony, I’d keep those real-estate contacts on speed dial.

My point is that he said publicly that he wanted the Warriors or let him sign with the Magic and continue his career. It's not about hating the Warriors I guess, per say, but he hates being under contract here.

Can you imagine if he had played for the Magic instead? He would certainly be a better option spelling Nelson then Jason Williams, and he would have gotten some significant starting/playing time because Nelson was injured at the start of the season (I think?).

In other news...why does everybody hate Hunter so much? Not even including tonight (playing pretty well since he came in), the guy provides a low post rebounding presence and also boasts a fairly consistent mid range J and he hustles...what's not to like here? He doesn't take bad shots...I just don't get it? I really like the guy, particularly as a third center.

The losing streak is over, way to go into the break. Steph Curry messed around and got a triple double!
