    They did have some legitimate injuries. Lee had some sort of minor sugery near the end of the season as an example. Who knows how bad Steph Curry's ankle really was. The Warriors sure as hell didn't want him to come back. The prime example of the tanking was in the last two games of the season. In the 4 or 5 games before that, Klay Thompson was playing around 40 mpg. But in the second to last game against the Hornets, he only played 28 minutes and sat out the whole 4th quarter in an 83-81 loss. Then in their final game of the season against the Spurs's scrubs, Thompson played 29 minutes and again sat out the whole 4th quarter.
    I wanted to also say that another reason I don't like the Warriors is that I despise Mark Jackson. He led a locker room mutiny during his season in Utah, I didn't really care for him as an ESPN analyst, he was conceited to the point that he refused to work his way through the ranks as an assistant coach, and he completely played along with the Warriors tanking, at least in the last two games of the season. There was no logical reason to sit Thompson out the whole 4th quarter those last two games if they were trying to win.

    Does anybody doubt that, at some point, we could have swapped Al for an injured Bogut? As of today, would anybody rather have Al?

    For all the apologists' praise over O'LongConner's patience (for which he does deserve credit), it remains true that we've been dragging around an unbalanced roster AND HE HASN'T BEEN ABLE TO MAKE A DEAL TO MAKE THE TEAM BETTER.

    It would be awesome to have Bogut returning to OUR roster, with the younguns having seen major minutes in his downtime. Then it'd be awesome to deal Millsap at this time and proceed with Bogut-Kanter-Favors.

    We have young players at those positions who can use experience. Right now Lyles isn't getting it but I have confidence that he will be back on the floor rather soon. Favors is getting better, Exum is rounding into shape. We are not getting past the 2nd round, we are unlikely to get past the 1st round. None of the options listed or available change that in the slightest.

    The article is off a newspaper somewhere I am sure. Just says that kanter has been playing less than expected and only played 5 the other jight. Some stupid comment from corbin, the obilgatory jazz will more than likely trade al or paul to make room.

    As I watch gs they are good this year for two reasons. Jack and landry. Those guys are beasting hard this year.

    Don't forget Steph Curry. It takes a special player to shoot 45% on 3's at such a high volume (7 3PA's/game).

    Tell me the story of that white unicorn.... you know, the unrisky risk?

    Or, if you don't want to tell that one, maybe you can talk about the team that became great without having to make risks (unrisky or risky risks). Let's call this the rainbow story.

    Unicorns and rainbows... I'm sure you can add some dick humor to this, too. Fun times.

    An unrisky risk wouldn't be a risk...

    I did, but that isn't really necessary to see that only a Moran would talk about making "unrisky risks."

    You clearly didn't read, because I was making a joke. Or, have you also made a trollish turn?

    Good times.
