Curry, Green, Wiggins, Wiseman, Oubre... hmm... who are our other good players? haha


remember, Steph led us to 51 wins back in 2014 under Jackson with a really young team...don't underestimate how hard he can carry this team, especially when people are overlooking it.

Didn't we have a lot of vets on that team? Bogut, David Lee, Landry (i think), Jarrett Jack (i think). I don't know. I love Steph, but I think we may get off to a somewhat slow start which could put us in enough of a hole to not convey the pick (but still make the playoffs). Or maybe I'm just being greedy.


Landry/Jack weren't on that team

it was Bogut/Lee/Iguodala

but all of them missed like 20 games each

Why wouldn't his full Bird rights come with him if he's traded?

He's only on a two year deal from Phoenix. I'm assuming that was a FA deal and not after a trade on his rookie deal.


He was traded from the Wizards to the Suns.

Good looking out. Thanks.

This was an amazing move by Myers

Our offense will look different, but will still look great with Stephs usage going up with Klay out and Steph utilizing 2 extremely athletic wings in Oubre and Wiggins

Can we still blitz teams with a small ball lineup? I feel like that team would be a pain the ass for other teams, Paschall is an animal when he gets going.

PF Paschall
SF Oubre
SG Wiggins

We got younger and I think that's key for the team having energy again. Wiggins, Oubre, Wiseman, Nico, Paschall...all these guys are going to be fired up and playing hard. And...they are all extremely skilled.

I think what we are all thinking is "who is going to pull up from 30 on the fast break other than Curry?!" lol.

This team should be coached defensively as the all hands and length team....the passing lanes will not be safe!

I feel so much better than just yesterday.
Looking forward to 2073....bye bye pouting moody Durant...hello again the 73 win style of hoops!

I think Iggy and Livingston sort of gave the Warriors that. It's good to have that again....

No...Warriors aren't the favorites at this point on paper. But when I think of this crew going up against a 36 year old Lebron and AD....very confident that this team of greyhounds will run them off the court.

Maybe I am a homer, probably am but I think we could take the Clippers in a series. Clippers ball movement was terrible last year, great one on one players. Also thought the Clippers team defense was worse than the sum of its part due to bad team defensive communication. Actually think the Mavs are better, just the Luka/KP injuries did them in.

I honestly have no idea how good (or bad) we are at this point, but I'm pretty convinced we'll be interesting.

It will be a big deal if Wiggins offseason shooting drills pays off

I only go off what I’ve seen from him here with our Warriors ..So far I love the kid.

I wonder if we gave up Minny's 2nd round pick as part of the two conditional 2nd rounders. Not that it matters tremendously. Just curious.

Just stumbled upon this to remind you why we drafted James "Klay Thompson" Wiseman.

Excellent pick up and kudos to the FO & ownership for keeping the team relevant! I am disappointed for Klay and excited at the same time to see what we have in Wiseman, Oubre and Wiggins with an almost full cast.

The Warriors are all in for at least the next three years. The tax bill after the run with the crew is going to be huge!

My goal is 5th seed and possibly knock a team or two out.

If they can settle into their roles this team can be a championship team. We need another player but Curry, Wiggins, Oubre, Green is a great 4.

4 lowlights from High School? I get people crapping on Wiseman for his workout videos but handpicked lowlights don't do it for me either. You could do the same for just about any player in the league.

yeah, and some of those defenses were giving Wiseman the Curry treatment and playing a box and 1 against him. I think he will have a little more room to operate playing with Curry.
