We are cutthroat around here
I just think that it's too soon to say that he should be a Warrior all his career. Hopefully yes, but you never know. I'm just trying to be a realist, that's all.

You're probably right with that one...
I dunno about that. Especially since Mullin's been pitching that whole continuity idea to Warriors players, fans, and management. Everybody seems to enjoy the idea of keeping players long-term and letting them flourish together once they know one another front-to-back. Some of us aren't too big on this whole "I'll go to whoever pays me the most" generation. In my opinion, leaving a team for the last 2 or 3 years of your career just takes the whole shine off a resume. Hopefully, our VP of Operations can keep our useful core (BD, JRich, Ike, and Monta) in Warriors' jerseys for the next 10+ years.

yeah, barring a trade for lebron or dwade, he's a keeper
I'd even be open to trading him for one of the top 2 picks of the 2007 draft. I think Durant will tear up this league and Oden won't be too shabby either.
are they declaring though? i heard that they might be staying in college. but then again, i DONT wanna wait for oden. i wanna see his game in the nba. but then again who knows what the difference can be between a 1-year OSU college man and a 4-year OSU graduate.
