Transition Complete?

What another chapter unfolding in the saga that is your Warriors Basketball team.  The end of the JRich movement.  I said before that JRich would rue the decision to put off surgery last off season.  The team was just better without him.  Did Monta's pouting at losing his featured role prompt this move?  What is keeping us from advancing to the Finals?  It wasn't just a lack of rebounding.  It was hitting from charity, and Jason's inability to improve at the line coupled with his questionable rehab from knee surgery makes this draft day move a no-brainer.

Now, the national buzz has consistently got it wrong for the Warriors' personnel moves.  We actually KNEW that we won that Pacers' trade, but it took a while for everyone else to discover for themselves.  Now, I think that Jason, under MJ's tutelege, can prove to the NBA that he is an All Star, and in the East, I think he makes it.  He'll be a team leader with excellent supporters in Felton and Okafor as 2nd and 3rd options.  I predict he will improve his FT% 10 points as his early career suggested.

So, we get that rare Nellie big man that can run.  Will we be able to roll "big" with Diddy, Jack, Al, Brandan and Dre on the floor?  That provides some match up issues, don't it?  We'll have more of a legitmate inside game to complement the perimeter shooting.  That, and everyone can slash and penetrate.

Blocks and steals will continue to be our defensive forte with our new addition.  Even if in his rookie year, he asked to merely back up Andris, that fills a big hole.  The transition seems nearly complete.  I think Monta proved in the Utah series that he can run the team with Baron down.  And, with the point forward flexibility, we have a team that resembles Nellie's mismatch philosophy.
