9/12 on twos, 4/11 on threes.

Finishing looked stronger. No, he’s not a dynamic leaper, but he just looks stronger around the paint.

Looking back and forward I was just thinking that to me (assuming good health):

Poole's floor is a bench microwave scorer who is occasionally inefficient and occasionally dominant. His peak is CJ McCollum.

Moody looks like he has potential to be a good not great NBA all around starter. A 3-D player should be his floor, an overall positive on offense and defense with decent shooting and passing and team and individual defense is his peak. Iguodala with a more consistent shot and less athleticism.

Kuminga's floor is a defensive beast, his peak is superstar.

Wiseman's floor is a rebounding, defending, dunking big ... JaVale McGee. His peak is Joel Embiid.

The fact that the Warriors have that positive a future and are only down 1 1st round pick and 1 2nd round pick over the next 5 years is frankly pretty amazing.

Imagine them drafting someone like Moussa Diabate or Jeremy Sochan in the next draft then you have a possible starting 5 of under 21 year olds of Poole, Moody, Kuminga, Diabate, Wiseman.

Why the **** would you want Moussa Diabate and Wiseman on the court together? LMAO

And FFS Wiseman turns 21 in March. Poole is already 22. At least look this **** up. :lol:

He doesn’t have to answer that question until after we see Wiseman on the court a couple of times.

Never understood why so many wanted him. That would have been just as bad as taking Ekpe Udoh at 6.

I remember wanting Mitchell at the time because it looked like quick, young point guards were going to be a huge problem for us after watching Ja eliminate us in the play-in game and Tre single-handedly lead his team to the ECF.

Mitchell looked like he was going to be our solution to this problem especially after watching videos of him giving Cade a hard time when they played each other in college. I also didn't mind his age and thought it was a bonus because it seemed like we we were incapable of developing 19 year olds after seeing how things played out with WIseman. Glad I was wrong though.

At this point, Warriors are going into this year's playoffs with two undersized centers. Wiseman will not help.
I think that's a mistake. If warriors could get Sabonis for WIggins, Wiseman and Moody...or Looney, Wiseman and Moody...they should do it.

Sabonis is not sexy....but he's an all-star, legit size and he'd help make the offense hum.

Wiggins value will never be higher than it is right now. I'd slide Auto Porter into his starting spot.

You're not getting Sabonis without Kuminga included in the trade and he's the one piece I wouldn't give up.

Screw Sabonis. We are gambling on Wiseman. We are keeping Kuminga. He is still a dumb rookie now but he will be a star and won't hurt us with Luxury tax for a few years.
Wiseman can fail and we can still win the championship but then everybody had better be healthy and Klay and Poole both have to score.

Is third quarter Warriors surge a thing without Draymond. Let none of us ever underemate Draymond again. The league fans should also notice that the Warriors are not much better than mediocre without Draymond. They can hate Draymond but they should respect him.
