It pretty much over to begin with in the season where the Warriors have no depth. Keith Smart was coaching like he had a great team, but didn't take a hard look at this roster. If he did he would know he only had good role players and should let young players to play through their mistakes instead of playing Vets. A small back court, a weak front line who can't defend consistently, and no depth hurt this team. Smart should of try to be a teacher and let young players play through their mistakes. A real learning experience for him, but he will not be retain as a head coach, because I don't think management wanted him in the first place.

Not to agree or disagree with anyone...but it really seems to me to be a coaching and rotation issue. Yes, the players are playing like **** but who else wouldn't play like **** if they weren't in our shoes. I could see losing someone like Carmelo would make a team worse....but not so with Denver! I mean my God! They're doing excellently without him! Think it's about heart right now as a few of the Warriors players have as much heart as anyone...just have no desire to show. Completely sad to see...but to be expected. I just find myself shaking my head and such losses...and my girlfriend does the same. Note* when you find a woman that will show sadness and disappointment when the Warriors lose without any prior knowledge of the Warriors....shes a keeper :)
