Beating the Warriors by 5 is technically a win but a poor showing really.


They played very poorly but won this game on talent alone. If Klay or Steph was active, we might actually lose this game. :/

Glad I am not the only one describing this win as indifferent. Nothing to be proud of, scratch it from the memory bank and move on.

Well Imagine the Warriors drafting James Wiseman, and adding that to a team of Curry, Klay and Wiggins.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2lUBJhQxWc

He's likely the piece that's in their sights. 7'1, 7'6 wingspan, super athletic, defensive mindset and can score. The Warriors getting a top 2 pick right as Curry and Klay are coming back, and having added Wiggins, is to them, their best case scenario after KD has left. Imagine if KD had stayed, the Warriors would be in the same position, looking at a top 3 pick, and would be potentially adding Wiseman to a Curry, Klay, KD team.

Dwight used to be in some of the closing lineups earlier in the season and did well, wonder why they have not gone back to that.


Free throws in close game.

Klay,Curry and Green are all older. Green lately looks like toast.

all they have to do is trade their 2 great picks and they'll get another allstar, and then they'll be right up there seriously contending again. this draft class aint it, imo, and from what I've heard

As long as they have the two best shooters in the world they'll beat a lot of teams. Green has been declining for a few years now, but his main role is playmaking. He'll still be good with weapons around him. You won't see his impact as the main guy, kind of like Lonzo. Wiggins will be a great 3rd option.


Those championship Warriors teams had a lot of bench depth. They lost guys like Iggy, Livingston, McGee/Bogut and never really replaced them. If they use those picks and the MLE wisely, they can get back to contending next season.

Pretty much maybe. The loss of KD will have it's impact.
