i was thinking the same thing in regards to the tattoo.. How can we trade him and imagine what its going to be like when that swety body steps naked into a Phila 76'ers shower for a post game cleansing.

In saying that Rob Rowell probably had "property of Chris Cohan" inked up on his ass cheeks and thats why Rowell ended up hanging around.

hopefully i am wrong, but this draft pick will only make us eligable for the Jared Sullinger sweepstakes.

go from having one of the shortest back courts to one of the tallest ... defense would be improved and we could bring D-Wright off the bench as our 6th man. **** would be lovely.



Weak as hell with the bigs. Monta must be traded for a good Center


You keep saying this but no team is going to trade a good Center for a undersized 2 guard so get over it. And don't mention Gasol, he is far more valuable than Ellis.



Monta is not just an average 2 guard now is he. Pretty good the last year I think



It doesn't matter. He's not worth an elite big because there are only about 5 legit C's in this league... undersized scoring guards are much more replaceable.

trading monta for "Iggy" would be a huge mistake, I love Klay playing with Monta I'm excited to see what they can do.
Steinmetz says he can't play defense and the Jeremy Lin was a better defender. This kid can play some D, he's not Gary Payton but he is very good, especially at playing team defense.

To me it would make much more sense to not make a trade and move the roster around.
A roster with Curry and Ellis starting, with Williams and Thompson compeating for backup mins doesn't excit me.
But, with some creativity and moving some pieces around, this roster would excit me:

PG: Ellis, Curry, Lin
SG: Thompson, Williams, Jenkins, Bell
SF: Wright, FA PICK
PF: Lee, Udoh, Amoundson
C: Beans, Tyler, FA PICK


You solve your back court size, problem, even though curry and ellis will probably still see time on the court together, specially 4th quarter. Some people question having Curry coming off the bench, but as much as he is toutted for being our future PG, because of his subpar defense and qiuckness, I think he is better served coming in off the bench as a 6th man.

and if Lee can ever develope a post up game (or maybe tyler down the line can), then you could have at times a lineup like:
Curry, Ellis, Thompson, Wright, Lee

that would be an awesome offensive lineup for when you need to score in a hurry.

And when you need defense:
Ellis, Wright, FA (Battier or Prince), Udoh, Beans or FA(Dalembert).

That is a playoff team.... and a young one with room to get better.

You are right about guards being far easier to replace than bigs, but MGasol, before the playoffs that is, was pretty average and most on here ripped me a fair bit for still wanting to trade Monta for him. This trade could be possible and now with this Tyler character on the team, adding him with Monta might well get it done

The Warriors are starting to show a pattern of drafting PEDIGREE!!!

I say that cause we had Mike Dunleavy Jr with the 3rd pick in the YAO Ming draft. (son of former coach Mike Dunleavy)

We drafter Steph Curry in 2009 and he is the son of Dell Curry!!!

& After watching this recent NBA Draft i see Klay is son of former Trailblazer no.1 Pick Thompson.

This pick has "Monta's replacement" written all over it, which is good. Any one of the guys I've seen mentioned in Monta deals would be an improvement towards defense and rebounding.

What I don't get is why we haven't traded Monta by now. Even if Klay got snatched early, you know you could've gotten at least Alec Burks or Chris Singleton, both of whom would be able to slot in decently in some role. So why not trade Monta before tipping your hand to everybody at the poker table?

Do they honestly believe that a semi-contender will cave in during the post-season push next February (optimistic)? Who would that be? Dallas (has Terry), Los Angeles (can't/won't get rid of Kobe), San Antonio (would never touch Monta), Memphis (has Rudy Gay, remember?), Miami (HAH!) and the Knicks (HAHAHAHA!) all have a pretty good reason to hang up the phone.

what a freakin horrible pick. This guy is JJ Reddick at best and even that's pushing it. All he is is a spot up shooter.

JJ Redick is undersized scoring guard in a point guards body

Least Klay Thompson has a bit of length to him & Jay Bilas scouting report said "Amazing feet, if he has the desire will be a great defender"

A pretty good breakdown of Klay Thompson:

Seems to have pretty quick feet to stay in front of his man just like what Bilas said in the draft about his defense.
At the 5:40 mark
