I've talked with all my Warrior friends and we are all in agreement. We can't understand why Nellie and Mully didn't draft Noah instead of Wright? We have argued about the KG trade going up in smoke and whether he was worth it (I thought so, friends didn't) but we figured if McHale wanted Wright, Biedrins,and Ellis than that's why the Warriors had to tell Rod Higgins/Jordan to draft Wright (for the rights to Warriors JRich). I mean the Warriors didn't even work Wright out and he was injured anyways so maybe that's why the deal fell through or McHale just wanted to fool the Warriors and wanted to help his old teammate and Celtics team (though Nellie was also a Celtic). But if the Warriors brass had just let go of the KG pipedream then they should have told Higgins to draft Noah who went right afterwards at No. 9. They say Wright can score but heck he has the body of Joe Smith. I weigh almost as much as Wright and I'm only 6 feet so he must really be skinny and you don't hear Nellie praising him. He sounds like a project while word is Noah might break into the starting lineup though they already have Ben Wallace.
Noah's game, high intensity and defense/rebounding and running the floor would have been a perfect fit for the Warriors. They don't need anymore shooters now that they have added Marcos B. and Croshere and Barnes/Pietrus returned along with the playoff starters minus JRIch. It really bothers me that we didn't get Noah because I think with him and Biedrins we could've gone deeper in the playoffs and set us up for future championships.
I hope this Wright guy pans out but there's nothing we can do since the Warriors did what they did. But Mully and Nelly must really like Wright and he might turn out to be a beast like the Matrix or Stoudamire. I just thought NOah was a better fit.
