Can just tell.


saw this before watching (DVR'd) and literally after reading this, Lebron drove through traffic twice for impressive layups, caused a turnover and then finished on the break, all within a minute. Too funny

Theyre better without Wiseman TBH

Klay should be ready but its still a comeback from an Acl AND achilles......Klays always been durable but hes not a physical freak of nature like Kd so we dont know what to expect yet specially on defense and his movement offball


dumb. Imagine writing off a 19 y/o 7'1" guy who was coming off an injury and had only played a handful of games in college, because he struggled a little on a bad Warriors team. Yikes. :crazy:


Last seasons Warriors team was by far one of the worst they have ever fielded. It was basically Curry + G-Leaguers and a Draymond Green that was barely trying.

It was painful to watch Curry get triple teamed every game because outside of Wiggins, we didnt have any other player worth a damn on offense. This year things have changed dramatically.

They should have taken the Bulls offer last year of #4 and WCJ for #2. Take Hali #4. And if Orlando is able to get good production out of WCJ, I can only imagine what Kerr would have gotten from him.
Didn't like the Coby White pick. Preferred Rui. Now go out and make me look stupid Coby!

Im pretty sure the warriors are still high on wiseman, its a shame he now has missed developing 2 off seasons. But hali would be great in kerrs system

Just getting some veterans that could see the game a little better has helped so much, imagine if we had another veteran big to help Looney out sometimes.

Warriors look night and day from last season. The bench youngsters are really coming together.

How long will it take for Laker fans to turn on him? 2-3 weeks?


He was making correct reads tho passing wise, i much prefer watching him with Lebron than without

Now 3rd stringers like Lee, JTA and Mulder, who started games for the warriors last year, are now firmly glued to the end of the bench.

Those 3 guys should never have been rotation level players, but they were forced to be last year because we had so little talent.

No Tatum, Brown, Horford, Smart, Schroder or Richardson for the Celtics tonight lol. (Brown and Horford are in covid quarantine and the rest are just resting.)

I was kinda disappointed when I first heard it but it will be a great opportunity for our young guys and hopefully lead to a fun game against the young Magic.

Seems like the Suns are getting an open 3 on every possession against the Blazers.

Blazers down by 35, and going to stay winless in the preseason. Pretty good sales job to Dame by Billups.

Just box score watching, but how is Portland getting smacked this badly? All of Dame/CJ/Roco/Nurkic/Powell are playing and Phoenix is missing CP3...

Watched the 1st half only, they couldn't hit water from a boat, both teams didn't play any defense really.
