Who's The Biggest Disappointment?

Discuss anything related to Golden State Warriors basketball here

Moderators: Mr. Crackerz, JREED, Guybrush, hobbes

Hey, I love the Warriors, but before Mullin got here, we had some pretty damn sorry decisions being made... what do you think was our worst trait, GM wise?

Picking up has-beens and giving up young talent (John Starks, Terry Cummings, Mookie Blaylock, Muggsy Bogues, ect)
1
3%
Trading established stars for would-be busts (Mitch Richmond for Billy Owens, Tim Hardaway for Bimbo Coles, Chris Webber for Tom Gugliotta, ect)
13
43%
Wasted draft picks (Vonteego Cummings, Joe Smith, Todd Fuller, ect)
13
43%
Vince Carter (and CASH, on top of it) for Antawn Jamison... I'm still not over that...

Last season's stats for dun were barely acceptable! And this season he is not acceptable at all.

I will not call him a good player until he proves he is! So far this season he has been disgraceful and noone can rightfully say he has performed well

Last seasons stats were above average for players his position/experience/size or anything else you wanna compare. Dunleavy getting 13 and 6, shooting 39% for three and 45% from the field (as a jump shooter!) is great.

You say THIS SEASON like it's anything. We've played 3 games, migya. Chill, he'll be alright.

If SoCoolBob gets to bump up his old, has-been threads just to increase the number of replies, I guess I get to also...

Seems like the new thing to do.

the Trading Stars and the Wasting Draft Picks are equivalently dissappointing.
New. Stuff.

Warriors have had far worse trades in the last 10 years - Tim Hardaway, letting Hughes go for nothing instead of trading him, Joe Smith.

Some of the draft picks have also been awful!!!!!


How about drafting Joe Smith instead of Jerry Stackhouse? I personally talked to Rod Higgins about this at Water World. He said the Warriors drafted Joe Smith because he was taller than Stackhouse. Stackhouse has been an allstar and a solid pro ever since he has been in the league.

Or .. perhaps making free throws will ALWAYS MATTER?

When it comes to making free throws ... and many other things.

Does one learn from .... one's mistakes?
If that were true then ... Shaq would be ... Biedrens would be ... ?

When it comes to making free throws ... and many other things ... one learns from one successes and repeats them over and over and over again.

But if one makes a major mistake with a huge impact, one tends to learn and not do it again

Are we still talking about free throws?

I'm struggling to find the example. Which Warrior is it who ... after episode after episode of missing free throws .. publicly ... has LEARNED from
their mistake?

OK ... it seems to me ... rather ... that 71 percent free throw shooters ...
and 35 percent free throw shooters .... are repeating themselves ...
over and over and over.

Or ... did I "miss" something?
