The Warriors need a tough banger/rebounder who can run the floor, right? The Warriors could also use a sharpshooter from the three point line, right? The Ws have no one who could handle the likes of the Boozers, the Stoudamires, the Duncans, Rasheed Wallaces of the NBA so the Ws get outrebounded and pushed around. The Ws have a bunch of streaky shooters who could just as easily go 10 for 10 from the arc in one game and 0 for 10 in the next.
The Answers to all their needs lie in the Florida champions. The consummate power forward Horford or the match-up nightmare of Brewer? I wish, but unfortunately Horford and Brewer are projected to go in the top 10. I'm thinking of their teammate, the son of Yannick Noah, who can play defense, rebound, and who's athletic and can run the floor in Nellie ball. He would've gone in the top three a year ago but after a so-so year Noah might slip into the teens and it'll be up to Mully to move up and try and snatch him. I've heard the doubters, how he won't be a force in the NBA but I disagree because this guy has fire in his soul and loves the game! I can just seem him rebounding and running the lanes in a Ws uniform with his hair bouncing up and down. Trust me, Noah will be a dynamic leader too!
And for the sharpshooter who is quick enough to get open for a jumper, I really like Lee Humphrey. The guy was one of the best college three point shooters of all-time. Sure he can't shoot free-throws, but I think that's just mental. And he doesn't remind me of Bobby Hurley (who never recovered from flying out of his car near the Arco Arena) who didn't make it in the NBA. This guy Humphrey looks tougher and all he needs is a split second to rifle the ball in from downtown. The NBA line is farther out but I bet this guy has it all figured out. Humphrey will last into the second round and may not even be taken but it would be worth the gamble for Mully who would be the only current Warrior who could compete with Humphrey in a 3pt shooting contest.
So there you are. An athletic defensive force like Noah, and a sharpshooting tough Humphrey from the Florida National Champions!
Do it Mully! If he can somehow trade up to get Noah, how can Nellie turn that down?!!
