With Durrant, Curry and Thompson, who is going to be the alpha scorer? Is
someone willing to give up their shots to another star? Are the masters of cut
and shoot and catch and shoot going to become catch or cut and pass? Steve Kerr
has some coaching to do.
@65toss - your comment makes absolutely no sense. How are the Warriors better
without Barnes and Bogut? This is called addition of a great player in Durrant
and subtraction of two very good players. Too bad they couldn't find a way
to keep Bogut and add Durrant but didn't have the cap room without trading
another key player.
This is called addition by subtraction.
Golden State playing defense? That's an oxymoron. Bogut was done in GS
regardless of the KD sweepstakes win. He'll be fine in Dallas. Good for
Are we even entertaining a discussion that the warriors would be better if they
kept Bogut and passed on Durrant? Please stop the nonsense. Top three in
scoring all but his first year in the league and a top defender? Yes the
Warriors went doen a step when Bogut went out, but if they were able to replace
him with Durrant in the playoffs Cleveland had no chance. Love this move, and I
think Bogut has a chance to excel in Dallas and make Dallas much better.
As I understand it, Bogut was made fully aware that if the Warriors were to win
the KD sweepstakes, he would be the big casualty. I don't think it would be
looking too far into it to mention earlier this week he had already removed
photos of him in GSW garb in his Twitter avi.Would be really cool to
see the Mavs package him in another trade to Cleveland for Love and have him go
stick it to the Dubs next year, but I can't imagine it would happen.
Should have kept Bogut. I'm not a warriors fan, but less so now.
foxtrot,I don't think the idea was durrant for bogut, but perhaps the
warrioirs would have been smarter to find a way to clear cap space and keep
bogut - trade someone less valuable
yeah, but, cmon. i like Bogut and have been a fan of his since the Utes. But
easy trade. Durant for Bogut all day.
Losing a good defensive minded center to get an all star scoring forward. Golden
state struggled on Defense when Bogut did not play. Overall, I'm not
sure this makes them a better overall team without knowing what other changes GS
will make to their roster. They need help in the 4-5 positions.
I think I understand the Warrior's reasoning to clear cap space for
Durrant, but I question their logic. While Durrant is is an offensive threat,
Bogut was a stopper on defense. Remember that the Warriors were up 3-1 against
Cleveland until they managed to injure him (accidentally???), and after that
nobody on the Warrior's team could stop Lebron and company.
