Haha that's a good one:clap: When Baron shuts down within the next two years (maybe even less) and you see Monta fly passed him give me a call.

I really believe in spite he decided to opt out at the last minute so we wouldnt use our trade exception to improe our team. What a d*ck. I hope he tears an ACL.

:cool: all we paid for him was a lil pg named speedy..... even tho i cant hate him he did leave to LA which he is were we all know he wanted to be and he is making more than nash and parker and most of ur top pgs to go home i cant hate him for that.... but i dont like how he was quit on us at the of the year and waited to the end to opt out...

thanks baron for saying you are not opting out then right after the warriors draft 2 big men opt out and sign with a rival

I agree with Lincecum. **** off Baron! :mad:

Could Warriors match? 5 year 65 mil seems reasonable and he did say that the Warriors are his first choice... anything is possible. Afterall, it isn't even in the same universe as 5 year 100 mil that Arenas was offered, so I believe if the Warriors matched 65 mil, they still have ample cap space to sign Biedrins and Monta right? He can't sign a contract til July 9th, so the Warriors have til then to match that correct?

But still, if he signs with the Clippers, what an incredibly low, sleazy, and dishonorable way to leave the Warriors.


Youth movement starts now! I can't believe I'm saying that, as I truly thought this year could have been special for the Warriors. Ricky Rubio PG draft of 09!

I actually don't know which direction the Warriors go. I don't think Nelson wants to be coaching a PG less team full of youngsters for his final season.

Shoulda drafted a back-up PG. But no one saw this coming.

I hope what happened to shawn livingston happens to him...that piece of ****...**** mullin too by the way. that piece of **** needs to learn how to run a team. he ****ed us over for so many years and now thinks he is the **** for trading dunmurphy....what a ***. baron was my fav player but to not give us time to negotiate is BS. **** him, tear an acl ******

supposedly it was the money, it was the years. baron wanted 5 years, the warriors wanted to give him 3....so he went home.

yea yea... you guys loved baron davis last week now you guys say hes not that good. I gurantee the clipps will be better than you guys next year. you guys might loose monte also. I think he is worth 13 mill a year... HA HA What a bargain, and you guys got F*cked by him, to bad

tru_warrior
07-01-2008, 09:50 PM
^^ no one was going to offer him more than 13 mil anyways. not us that's for damn sure. just because he opted out of his 17.8 mill and got less...doesn't mean he's worth 17.8m mill. it's not a bargain. most of the top pg's in the league are making around 12-14 mill anyways.

Baron
Gordon
Thornton
Brand - They still have plenty of cap room to re sign him.
Kaman

If you think that's garbage?

I think that's an awesome squad, and a good move by the Clips. But Baron won't dominate like he has--he'll shut it down after a year or two. He'll still be a good PG, but not worth the money he's going to get, which is why the Warriors wouldn't lock him up long-term.

If you think you're getting 70+ games out of Baron every season you're insane.

Well this sucks. Monta better get ready to take over at PG unless Arenas signs with us. Even better, maybe we can screw over the Clippers as well and try to land Brand.

I still have alot of trouble believing that he can. He might be able to, but I still see him as a SG. I hope he proves me wrong though.

I know it sucks for Warriors fans losing Baron but he wanted to play for his home team of LA. It's better not going to the Lakers. He always played well in GS and look at the bright side you guys now have tons of money to sign great players you still can be in the playoffs plus maybe monta can play point and you guys can look for a true sg

heres why the Warriors didnt come hard at Barron "Hollywood Diva" Davis

Year/Games played

99-00/82
00-01/82
01-02/82
02-03/50
03-04/67
04-05/46
05-06/54
06-07/63
07/08/82

now what are the odds this biotch plays a avg of 60 games over that 5 years the clippers gave him?

he went 5 straight years of being injury plagued before he put together 82 games this year in what now turned out too be his free agent year.

The Baron signing is going to blow up in the Clips face!!!

The next 2 years, the Western Conference is going to be STACKED!!!

There is no guarantee that the Clips will make the Playoffs next year in this stacked Western Conference. Last years 8 playoff teams, including the TrailBlazers, Clips and my darkhorse the Kings will be battling each other.

After Baron, Brand and Kaman, there are a lot of question marks, and a lack of depth. With the Dubs nice move in going after Brand the Clips are now hamstrung to sign any extra free agents to add to their bench.

I hope the clips sign Brand for $16 mil/year. We'll take Maggette for $8 mil/year.
