The biggest challenge we face as of right now is getting guys to play with some cohesion and high IQ on both ends, when you are young in the NBA you likely haven’t experienced that on a successful level. Our biggest challenge is getting guys to play Warriors basketball.

Not saying I want Lin, although I think he should have been kept years ago when we had him.


And Bazemore, Holiday, Nunn, Boucher, Anthony Tolliver, Belinelli, and It still kind of bugs me the Warriors couldn't figure out how to use Brandan Wright.

The Warriors also gave up on some decent deep bench guys who stayed in the league for years and year but always just good enough to not be secure in their spot. Players like Anthony Morrow, CJ Watson, and otheres.

And that's just from the Curry era really.

I mean will you trust Myers to fix this tax ridden team? Bob was not able to add depth for 3 years, how will anyone trust him to fix this team now? Unless we trade Wiggins + all our assets for depth, which will be an awful idea but I wouldn't put it past Bob

Add Danuel House Jr. and Georges Niang to the list of NBA quality reserves we had in training camp or the G-League that we didn't make anything of. But Wright did his job! He got traded for the pick that became Draymond :D

Okay, that's a good deal, but they could have got him back cheap and never did. He would have been great as a 15mpg guy, it's just that every time he got more time he got hurt, but he was freakishly efficient.

Well in recent years not keeping Nunn, House, and Boucher is a bummer. Nunn would be a good backup spark plug guard we need, House is an athletic 3&D wing, and Boucher is a long defensive 4 capable of playing stretch 5. I would say those three guys cover a lot of holes and could’ve been kept on minimum deals. Imagine having those 3 guys will still having our assets this year, that would be a really deep team with diverse specialty role players.

Depends on his physical condition. If he has recovered from his injury he could be valuable to the team. Just don’t know where he’s at now because haven’t watched him play lately.

His main strength was his first step which allowed him to get to the line. If he still has that then definitely want him on the team. His next strengths was playmaking and defense. Those aren’t as dependent on elite athleticism than bbiq. In that case he would be serviceable.

If you look at Jeremy Lin's last season (not in Toronto) he actually had good solid stats, and he was only a -0.5ish, which is top bench player type BPM.

Hasn't some of his issue been that he can't stay healthy?

Don't know if he fits. Especially after all his injuries. We need shooters. Lin not a shooter. We're not really a pick and roll team. That's like his bread and butter. I dunno perhaps bring him in for training camp and see. He may look "ok" against backups during the regular season.

I like him better than Bowman.

I am a Lin fan. Ever since his first stint with GSW. I don't he is a good fit. His style of play at his age is not sustainable with top NBA teams plus he is not good at playing off the ball. He thrives on PNR, slashing and scoring.

The main reason I do not want him on my favorite team is because his whiny crazed fans. All GSW forums will be destroyed by them. What happened to Warriors' World is nothing compared to what these lunatics can do.

Apparently they’ve been working out together at USF, along with a few other Warriors.

Jeremy Lin’s been in the Bay working out with Steph, Paschall and Chriss lately.

Would you guys rather have Lin or Isaiah Thomas?

IT got surgery and completely recovered which he claims finally gives him movement for the first time in several years; he also expressed interest in coming off the bench for Golden State.

I think based on all the stuff he’s been doing with Steph lately that if no other teams come knocking for Lin that he will at least be a nom guaranteed camp invite.

At that point it would be up to him to beat out Bowman and Mulder. Not really Poole, because they’ve invested in Poole.

I prefer vets who know what they are doing to inexperienced players if they are planning to make a playoff run.
