The question should be:

Will KD be one of the greatest Warriors ever? If so, where does he fall on the list?

Wait until we get 30 threads; one for each team. Woo hoo. Can't wait to discuss the bobcats top 5 players of all time

Adam Morrison's mustache would certainly make the cut

Move it, delete it. You seem extremely bothered by this. Meh.

I actually think this is a really interesting team to talk about because they have had some great players across extremely different eras. Anybody's top three probably has Wilt, Curry and Barry in some order. But then there are so many other guys after those three who you could make a strong case for.

Paul Arizin and Neil Johnston were beasts for the Philly Warriors in the 50s and brought them a title in 56. Mullin was an offensive monster for them on those Don Nelson teams in the late 80s and early 90s, but they were fairly mediocre then. And then you could make the case for two elite defenders between Thurmond in the 60s and Draymond Green in the 2010s. You could make a case for Klay as well.

This is probably one of the hardest teams in the league to nail down a definitive top 5 all-time guys.

And are we going to act like the dunk on AK-47 didn't automatically place Baron Davis in the top 5?

Davis and Richardson were solid players, but they don't deserve to be spoken in the same breath as Wilt, Curry, Barry and Mullin. Those guys are Hall of Famers or future Hall of Famers.

Your not wrong but I always hold a special place for J Rich holding down the fort. The warriors sucked for the majority of my life and he was the lone bright spot for a long long time. As far as all time your list is right but I imagine KD will find his way into the list if we win a lot more.

1. Curry
2. Rick Barry
3. Chris Mullin
4. Wilt Chamberlain
5. Klay Thompson or Draymond

Nate Thurmond and Tim Hardaway are in the mix too.

KD hasn't even played two full seasons. Let's cool it on him being higher on the list than guys like Barry and Mullin, who played the bulk of their careers in Golden State and are Hall of Famers.

Yea but KD Curry and Wilt are all (potentially) in the elite of the elite category, just clearly better than other warriors from the past, all great in their own right. These 3 players can all go down as legit tier 1/tier 2 all timers

OK, but if you're having the conversation of "greatest XXXXX of all-time," then longevity absolutely should matter. Barkley gave the Rockets 3-4 solid seasons of basketball at the end of this career, but he would be my starting PF on my all-time Rockets team. Even Pippen played a season in Houston, but that dude wouldn't sniff my all-time team.

Giving a guy an edge after one and a half seasons over other guys who played 8-10 years at a Hall of Fame level there is just insulting.

He is a warrior, he is def a top 3 of all time as far as all warriors

Except it doesn't. Nobody argues all-time conversations on teams that way. You're certainly welcome to have that argument, but that's clearly not the discussion anyone else in the thread is having. Also, as a Warriors fan, you ought to consider showing a little more appreciation for guys who contributed to your franchise for the better part of a decade.

So LeBron is the greatest Heat player and not Wade, I guess?

Hey guys I'm new but here is my two cents.

1) Wilt (although he played in Philly Warriors then San Francisco Warriors) I don't know how you guys will look at it.
2) Curry (he is #2 because he as played on the Warriors longer than KD)

3) KD

4) Mullin

5) Barry

Don't know much about the early 50s teams.

Plenty of other people also said kd, and you know what it is I'm saying. It's not necessary to oppose each other every single thread. What ur saying is fine and what I'm saying is fine, it's no big deal

tredigs
02-06-2018, 10:30 PM
Nah you're not a top 5 Warrior after a year and change. It's not, "best players who played for the Warriors at any point". To drive this home, if KD left after this season, his jersey would obviously not be retired here. That's what "best X franchise player" pertains to.

I wanted to include T and C too but they just weren't here long enough. You just threw a lot of shade at Mullin by including Neil Johnston with him lol. I don't include Arizin either. No Philly Warriors. Wilt gets half credit for spending a few years in the Bay, but Curry is unquestionably already the GOAT Golden State Warrior.
