    That's why Rush is so important to this team, one of the few Warriors than can actually take the ball to the basket and dunk. Curry and Thompson are soft and hardly ever drive into the paint, both work better off the ball.

    Still early in the season though, Thompson needs to be more aggressive, same with Curry. Although after 4 years of seeing Curry play, the guy just isn't a aggressive player, he's lazy and only good on the offensive end. By lazy I mean, those terrible one handed passes that STILL haven't stopped and continue to lead to bad turnovers.

    I agree, I saw Harrison Barnes do that last night as was like WTF do they teach that to our young players?

    To think that Thompson will become aggressive and start getting to the line 5 or 6 times per game isn't realistic in my opinion. I'm not sure Klay has that much more room to improve. But we can definitely improve how we use him. He should study Ray Allen and we should use him like that constantly running around the court trying to get open and wearing out his defenders. I saw some of that last night which is encouraging but it's the defensive end of the floor I'm more worried about.

    I realize its game 2 of season 2 for him, but to put 2 light weights in the back court starting isn't a winning formula in my opinion. Curry and Thompson have the similar strengths and weaknesses, better at the off guard, not strong or athletic. I'm not saying I have any answers or a solution and I think shooting is so hard to come by these days, so I guess we should just see what happens, but I'm skeptical about this backcourt tandem. They seem a little redundant.

    There's nothing wrong with Klay's skills, but our back-court is physically one of the weakest and least athletic in the NBA. Ironically I thought we played best last night with Jack, Curry and Thompson on the court at the same time. But then great we're back to small-ball.

    I'm not trying to insult anybody when I say this but I think some of you guys have been conditioned to accept mediocrity for our Warriors (which is understandable considering our 1/18 record of making the playoffs in recent times). Same guys were saying "give Biedrins time, he's only 23". I appreciate how fair and loyal you guys are, but sometimes it seems some of you put too much faith in the future of our young players. At what point do we say we need players who are good now not good young players who are going to be good in the future?

    I think as a lifelong warrior fan I've earned the right to be impatient.

    I think the whole world knew when we drafted curry that we were going to get rid of Monta. But if Klay had half of Monta's heart and toughness we'd be fine. I miss Monta... And Ekpe for that matter.

    **** it guys, let's just tank with what we have, hope a SG falls to us in the draft because Klay is only good when it doesn't matter, and then wash, rinse, dry, repeat. Works 0% of the time 100% of the time.

    I would never describe Monta as soft. At least he is aggressive going to the hoop. Monta gets way more points in the paint And gets to the line much more.

    I was never saying that Monta is the big bulky solution to Klay Thompson, u brought him up. Klay is soft though. I don't blame him, it must be intimidating to go inside in the NBA knowing you're going to get pounded by a bunch of gargantuans.

    klay is starting to drive though.

    do you expect a pure shooter (like he was in college) to go hard in the paint (no phillies)?

    dirk, eric piatkowski, jimmer freddette, curry, jj redick, all these dudes are soft AF because they are sweet shooters, and thats it. its really hard to develop that instinct to go hard IMO, though you can teach a guy to penetrate

    So who should we start instead Bazemore?

    This thread is absolutely ridiculous.

    Actually I agree haha that is a good point we don't have anybody better to start. It's just frustrating watching our team get outmuscled by every opponent. My underlying theme was that we are too soft with Curry Lee and Thompson all starting, and of the three I would send Thompson to the bench to beef up our starting lineup... that said, the options aren't great, but I might have said Rush before yesterday.
