He didn’t mention the biggest worry of all- can Kerr really coach? He impressed nobody in the 7th games final minutes..he just sat and watched the team collapse. He didn’t impress me in any of the games.
Bogut had peaked. When Mark Jackson can say “I told you so” its time to let him sleepwalk for the other guys.
It sounds like Adams is trying to lower expectations. If Bogut and Festus were so important to the team why weren’t they ever on the floor when the game was on the line? The Warriors best line up and by far the best line up in the NBA, statistically, had Draymond at center and Bogut and Festus watching the game.
As the architect of the dubs defense he should be mourning the loss of his two best rim defenders.
The dubs are going to try to out score everyone and as Paul Westhead will tell you, that doesn’t work every night.
Durant is underrated as a defender and I truly believe that his defensive presence will improve provided he buys into the whole team concept. I don’t think the Warriors braintrust would have gone this route if they did not think this was the case and that they could not get some minutes out of their new first round draft pick. Look the new “death lineup” consisting of Curry, Thompson, Durant, Green and Iguadola is crazy good. And you can swap in Livingtson if you want there as well. They need only a couple more rotation players which I also believe they will sort out in camp and early season. Who do you stop? It simply won’t be fair.
