While I think Turner is a FANTASTIC player, I am not sure he is the best fit with Curry. Turner is someone that is at his best when he has the ball in his hands and is initiating the offense. Not working off the ball. From the times I have seen Ohio St play, this is where he thrives. Almost a point forward type.
As we have seen, Curry is best when he has the ball and initiates. This is why I think Wesley Johnson is the best fit in terms of swing men. I think Turner is the more dynamic player, but Johnson the better fit.
EXACTLY!!! Plus Wesley Johnson is a better defender than.. almost anyone else in college at the 2 guard spot. Steph to Wesley for the allyoop, Steph to Wesley for the 3!!! Oh yeah Wesley is an awsome 3 point shooter. This combo gives the Warriors the best young backcourt in the league hands down.
I really like Monta but he just can't pair up with Curry as well as W. Johnson does, and Monta ain't gonna grow another 5 inches and suddenly develop a ridiculous, albatross like, wingspan.
Now, IF AR comes back healthy, and we can get him to play the 3, and IF we can package Monta for Al Jeffersen (not giving up hope on this) then our starting 5 and our bench 5 is looking tall, beefy and mean...
PG - Stephen Curry 6'3" (and growing)
SG - W. Johnson 6'7" (wings like an albatross)
SF - Randolph 6'11" (long, and athletic, 7' now?)
PF - Al Jefferson 6'10" (brick shithouse, brings the beef!)
C - Biedrins 7'0" (long, will get better, really)
Bench (would be an awsome bench imho)
PG - CJ
SG - Morrow
SF - Mags
PF - Tolliver
C - Turiaf
