this team needs a big man. maybe that guy is the wiseman, maybe it's not for this season.
still, they need to add a big body who can provide some size and bang in the paint for some stretches.

that and the bucks.
MIL wouldn't be an easy matchup for the dubs as currently configurated.

They wouldn't but the same applies to them. Outside of Giannis, the Warriors would lock up Middleton and knowing Jrue, he'll lock himself up offensively. The key to beating to Bucks is making sure Middleton doesn't go off. Giannis can average 40PPG at that point and still lose the series comfortably.

Warriors are the biggest defensive matchup nightmare to any team in the NBA when fit.

Maybe give Quinndary all of Chiozza’s minutes and se what happens.

We need to figure out how to maximum our offense when playing Green Iggy Looney JTA...ideally you should only play 2 of them at the same time and having shooters on the court. Poole to me is a one man offense and bad shooter so we have to figure out how to use him in the right way as well.

Drop Chiozza and sign Taco Falls. So us fans don't have to scream at the TVs.

And can get more Taco Bell commercials or promotions.

Win win!

I think it is pretty obvious at this point that the Warriors have no interest in adding a big man. They have had the opportunity to do so whether is was Cousins, Biyombo, etc. since the beginning of the season and have never pulled the trigger to add one.

They think they can ride with what they have now and it’s true they can. They are counting on Wiseman to realize his potential, but that is risky, until he can show in games that matter. He’s been no contact drilling so I have to assume he hasn’t gained much experience on the defensive end.

And if Looney is out, chances for championship drop dramatically without a proper backup. Cousins is bad luck so it’s no big loss not to get him.

Athletes. Im looking square at Kuminga and Wiseman.

Memphis made us look like an old and slow team last night. Wiseman and Kuminga are young, but they are ELITE athletes and can help this team, even if its in limited minutes.

The Nets aren't going to get past the ECF.

Who beats them? They were doing pretty well last season before Kyrie got injured. :oops:


The Bulls and Bucks.

Whoever they face in the ECF, if they get that far. Nets are paper tigers.

One thing the Warriors need is someone who can a) get Kerr a mask that will stay on his nose more than two seconds while he is talking; and/or b) a mask coach who can teach him to not have 60 percent of the mask under his chin.

How Kerr hasn't gone into the protocol is beyond me. He has the worst mask game in the league.
