Here’s a great idea – after we lose in the 7th game of the finals , after a record breaking season, let’s dismantle our team. Let’s swap basically, many proven players with chemistry for one more superstar.
There is only one ball. The Warriors have plenty of shooters and scoring.
This will turn out to be a bad move.
I hope I’m wrong.
a team is more than just a collection of superstars. it’s about chemistry and understanding roles as well as players accepting their roles. starting back in 2010-11 when the Miami Heat had Bosh, Wade and James everybody predicted a dynasty and a string of NBA titles, too. it’s tougher than it looks.
YIKES! There’s only 81 regular seasons left for the W’s to figure it out, in a league where only HALF(!) of the teams make the playoffs …. Giant yawn. Wake me if they’re still searching after the all-star break.
It became obvious when DeMarcus Cousins had his way with Za Za in the preseason. We now get to see how Kerr game plans with the abundant talent available, around this glaring weakness.
Dear Mr. Lakob…
Maybe tough defense in the paint does matter?
Sincerely, Andrew, Festus, and Mo
Dear Coach Kerr…
There is no I in TEAM but there is ME!!!
Andrew, Festus and Mo were not tough on D in the paint in game 7. Andrew wasn’t even there.
They played like COWARDS!
btw- Amazing how healthy Coco Crisp has stayed in Cleveland. Neck is fine!
Whats scary about the Warriors is how Curry went from transcendent the first 70% of last season to just pretty darn good…again like he always was. Not a ball handling wizard or passer. Defense in spurts.
He was at Linsanity levels so long. All things must pass.
Only with Curry its a turnover..
This much consternation after one October game?
It’s all ridiculous my friend but what’s also crazy is the level of expectation for this team driven by people who should know better.
Papa was going all out yesterday on his afternoon Radio Show engaging in such nonsense as, ” I start from the premise that they’re going to win all 82 “.
Only so many shots to go around…interior D was terrible!!!
Kerr’s going to have to seize control more than last season and it should be fun to see how much rope they’re prepared to give to Draymond.

Momma said there would be nights like these……
Break up the team!! They are terrible!
Or how about we pump the brakes? Thompson was simply awful, they looked lost at times out there and got out worked by a team that remained mostly intact from last year (Duncan did not play all that much last season so they rolled out a very similar team) and did what they do.
If this team is .500 at Christmas I will be concerned. For now I am just going to watch and see how they come together.
Mama also said knock you out!….but the cowrriors didnt listen to LL Cool J.
