We need good guards!! Our bench guards are pathetic. I'm sick of Charlie Bell, Jeremy Lin, and especially Acie Law.

So Tyler is the guy who didn't finish high school? Sounds like the mature guy we needed...

This draft from the Warriors is making way too much sense to me. Who are these mysterious people running the show.

We needed a bigger guard to compliment Monta and Steph. Also, I thought we desperately needed a back up PG and hoped we would get one in the second round.

This Jenkins fella kinda reminds me of Baron.

Well we drafted a center... not a 6'3 guard so thats a start

Eh, I think traveling to Europe and Japan would mature a kid a lot quicker than college. Plus, one good thing about having Mark Jackson is that the young guys will listen to his "sound bites". I like the deal.

They need to move him and move him while his value is as high as it is.


I use to think this way of tim lincecum but you gotta emjoy Monta while he's healthy

I'm liking the way the warriors are working this draft obviously there is no big man help in this draft so you might as well get some help in th backcourt one of the teams biggest weaknesses this year was the teams depth at guard it looks like we're fixing that problem right now

And it's assumed JVG's source was his former partner Mark Jackson. So it's pretty reliable.

That's right and there just has to be a trade or two, because the roster is very imbalanced at the moment

I really liked what the Warriors did today.

Added some size in Klay to back-up Monte and maybe even play some SF. Most talking heads say he is one of the two or three most NBA ready guys. Just needs to add some bulk and learn the ropes.

They added a back-up PG/SG who all the analysts said should have been a 1st rounder. He also has some decent size at 222Lbs and a little over 6'3". As much as Curry hurt his ankes last year, this might look better down the road if he works out.

Then they took a gamble on a guy who has a legit NBA bigmans frame. He is young, naive, raw, but he isnt a 1st round pick. He is a low risk high reward type of gamble. Mark Jackson go earn your money.

Complaining about not landing a big man is pointless? Who did land a legit center? Anyone?

There are like 5 in NBA and none in this draft...
