He doesn't do anything well except jump. His value is as low as Barrett's...only if a pick is coming back.

Warriors should seriously consider tanking the season. They are awful.

Guess that's not technically a gif, but the gifs I've seen of it are the whole thing anyway.

Was hoping that you guys would have held on to BI instead but I guess that salary difference between him and Kuz was important in freeing up another max slot.

I don't think there was ever a choice between him and kuzma. Ingram had to be included in that trade. The choice might have been between kuz, Hart and a future first.

I hope someone forces Griffin to match a max contract offer sheet.

New Orleans started Ball, Hart, Ingram, and Okafor. (For the folks that were originally pissed about us taking DLo)

I miss BI, but boy did we dodge a bullet.

They seem like they've been paying every other day. They just look tired. They've also probably been playing above their heads a bit too... So it's a combo of GSW remembering who they are and bouncing back from getting their ass kicked, fatigue and coming down to earth a bit...

That said, those guys have all been solid so far this year, with Ingram looking legit.

So, I've watched just about every minute of their games this year. I'm not seeing anything different other than the system. Ball doesn't seem too much different and Ingram, while scoring more, isn't effecting the outcome of the games.

The interesting thing is that their starters have had fairly solid negative ± in every game while the bench is the opposite.

Ingram's scoring burst last year was similar for us with similar game results. He is shooting the 3 a little better early while he still has the same issues finishing in traffic near the hoop. Hopefully he plays to those strengths and away from those weaknesses.

I don't know what to make of Ball... was he that overhyped coming out? He still looks like he dreads being out there on the floor to me.

Warriors were left with little choice but signing DLO to that huge contract seemed awfully risky given he is a poor fit with Curry and Warriors still have KT coming back later in the year or next season.
