Whooppee doo if they are 1 or 2 games over even. We have to do a win lose fair deal. Like if I win, you take me out to a strip club
worse case scenerio, i think they will be like 4 or 5 games over. but they have a very very very easy stretch in march and april. I mean last nights loss was just a road loss to a tough opponent. they still have a chance to win the season series. They still beat miami in miami when miami was playing their A game.
I've been watching every game of Thompson's young career (like most of us in this forum), he is a great player and will definitely get better with experience, but he clearly is NOT the emerging all/super star that everyone around the league thinks he is. He is very inconsistent and streaky, can't handle the ball very well, which means he can't drive the lane and disrupt the opposing team's D with regularity, he is definitely NOT the pure shooter that everyone thought he was when he first came into the league. He's missed several free throws, which shouldn't happen as often as it has if he was more of a pure shooter, like Curry. I applaud him for his improved rebounding and one-on-one D, so he still has some upside, plus he has tremendous size for the 2 at around 6'7", but I just don't ever see him amounting to anything more than a really good role player.
That being said, in conjunction with the expression "strike the anvil while it's hot". Most of the league's opinion on Thompson is that he is a budding all/super star and they all still feel that at some point Klay will be awesome! Heck, a lot of us in THIS forum still feel that way. With that in mind, I am of the opinion that the Dubs FO needs to make a move to try and get top value back in return for Thompson's services while shedding some major cap space that is holding us hostage over the next couple years. Perhaps we could try to unload Thompson with either Jefferson's or Biedrin's horrible contracts and get someone like Rudy Gay in return. Both RJ and AB are also expiring soon, so that could increase the motivation of other teams to want to take on their salaries. I think our FO really needs to seriously consider moving Thompson to help set us up for long-term franchise prosperity.
Lol. You think anybody expected us to do as good as we're doing in the first place? We already beat the Heat, the Clippers twice, we went on the best road trip in franchise history, and we've been north of .667 for most of the season. You sound absolutely ridiculous.
