    i agree with stylez. we need to win now. a playoff berth will sway free agents.

    players want to go to playoff teams. if we miss the playoffs, we have less chance of signing free agents who are difference makers. only if salary cap allows of course.

    its very rare that a team just becomes a contender after tanking for so many years. Usually a team has to get solid, be a lock for the playoffs, be a borderline contender, than a real contender.

    The warriors look pretty solid right now. They are actually winning games through things that dont fall under luck. They are consistantly outrebounding teams, closing out on shooters close to 20% more (Huge difference... not luck). They kind of are in a place they are satisfied with as far as the level the team is playing at on the court. Theyre doing this with 3 of their biggest offensive weapons struggling shooting the ball (not likely to continue... considering how good of shooters curry and thompson are).

    And if the warriors management havent learned anything else from the last 9 months... they should know tanking a season on the hopes that bogut will be at 100% the next season is not a smart thing to do. if bogut doesnt come back and be a regular starter at some point this season....there is almost no chance that he will be 100% next season either.

    If you dont see the harm on giving up on the season and looking towards the future year after year after year after year.....You havent been a warriors fan the last 2 decades.

    they tanked the season to get Barnes and ultimately the 30th pick, Ezeli.

    Think about it. We traded for Stephen Jackson who we then traded for Jefferson and the 30th pick, Ezeli.

    Monta for Barnes, Bogut, and Ezeli

    yes, but to say they tanked for ezeli is incorrect.

    If we kept Stephen Jackson and not made that trade we would've had at least one more win. But I see what you're saying I guess.

    I don't only see it that way. But I see what you're saying.

    By trading Monta we were able to keep our 7th pick, Barnes.

    Jefferson wasn't going to help us win games last year. And neither was starting 4 or 5 rookies for that matter.

    agreed- they would have had ezeli even if they won the championship last yr. it had nothing to do with tanking.

    Does anyone see Bogut making it back by December 22nd? From that date on, we could really use Bogut, and if we don't have him by then we could fall quite a bit in the standings. That's 23 days from today.

    I guess stats aren't factual when rattled off?

    When did I ever say i was giving up on the season? Did i mention tanking? I'm simply trying to look at the brighter side of things you know trying to see the glass as half full. I agree we are playing solid but solid enough for what an 8th seed maybe? I did'nt say we would be a mediocre team this season then all of a sudden be title contenders when Bogut is healthy next season. I think you should take the time to read people's posts for what they say and stop reading into thing so much and assuming they mean more than what is written.
