Let's not start that, he didn't do anything wrong.


I beg to differ.


Green is not a dirty player. He made a play any defender would. Just not the results we expected.

feel really bad for Klay more than anything, only consolation here is that he already got his contract.

not sure where we go from here to be honest, Steph/Klay were gonna carry this team this year, but now it's just Steph and no one.


That would lead to question what dray is doing with the team then.
I mean, if he can’t help to carry this team without Klay then he better be traded to bring in someone who can be more instrumental in the changed scenario.

I'm sure they are to be used for different/separate purposes. So, no.

I still have no words, but s/o Klay. It takes a ton of mental fortitude to get through b2b injuries but I believe Klay is the type to get through it and excel.

Here’s hoping.

I feel awful for Klay. I cannot imagine the mental anguish he's going through. Dude missed maybe 20 games through his first eight seasons until Danny Green took him out in Game 6. I'd never seen Klay play better than he did in that Game 6. It was this incredible glimpse at what could have been with Klay -- he was running high pick and rolls, defending Kawhi capably, and generally looking like the best player on the court. And to have that taken away from him and then to tear the achilles trying to come back. It's not fair.

Mulder is gonna make the team and he's going to play big minutes next year. Brutal. Desperately need the Oubre for TPE dream to happen. Wonder if maybe the Warriors can get in the mix for Joe Harris with the DPE, even though that's below his market value.

we need to have a real conversation about Amnesty Klay... with the pandemic stopping the league might add the Amnesty clause again... Klay is not gonna be the same player at all... and hes getting paid like a Superstar... he really cripples us now and long term... it really sucks but man we need to somehow move on... Klay career in real jeopardy... what the **** was he doing playing pick up!!!!!!

GTFO this board if you want to amnesty Klay. You do not amnesty a legend who gave his everything for this team, who changed the course of NBA history, who gave us some of the most memorable moments we will ever have as sports fans. You don't amnesty a guy like this, not ever. It's immoral and it's a terrible look to throw a franchise legend to the dustbin.

He had the Warriors' approval to train in the offseason. He was more than 16 months removed from his ACL tear. Common recoveries with the ACL tear are 9-12 months. Clearly something went wrong, but it's very unlikely he was being reckless.

Didn't Oubre just get traded to OKC this week?

Fournier?
Redick?
Eric Gordon?
Oubre?
Any other?

Avery Bradley or similar player can be signed with the MLE (if willing to accept the $).


Eric Gordon is another 4 year contract. Call Dallas for Tim Hardaway Jr. He's only on a one year deal left. Essentially an expiring deal but shoots over 40% from 3. Fills the gap until Klay comes back.

It's probably my reactive emotions speaking, but I'm fine dropping the banhammer on anyone suggesting a trade or amnesty of Klay over the next few weeks.

We can totally trade for Gordon (TPE) and PJ Tucker (DPE) now without trading any of our players. Maybe package them with some 2nd round picks or 2027 FRP.
