For many people the Warriors are in a never ending state of dysfunction. We show promise for 3 or 4 years to then return to mediocrity with a glimmer of hope for the future. LETS FACE IT.... No one on our roster (besides monta's potential before the crash) seems to be able to command double teams and single handedly change a game. We had that in Baron Davis and Jason Richardson. No team who has won a championship or seriously competed for one not had a game changer or a core of great players who fit their roles. The warriors seem like a team filled with shooters, slashers and rebounders. That doesnt sound championship material.
HONESTLY, STEPHEN JACKSON IS OUR TOP SCORER ON OUR TEAM. WHILE ON THE CHAMPIONSHIP SPURS HE WAS A ROLE PLAYER NOT ASKED TO DO TOO MUCH. How can we expect to compete for a championship with him at the center of our plans. Sure we all love Jacks key 3's*(when he actually hits them) and his energy but we are screwed if he becomes the face of the franchise.
I believe having a strategy with key roles for all of our players can ultimately win us a championship:
PG: A Defensive minded, good passing point guard
SG/Star Player: Monta Could be our A.I. and he could just shoot and drive and make game changing plays without worrying about ppoint guard duties.
SF: Anthony Randolph could be one of our main ball handler and a big defensive presence. He could be a huge factor in small ball too.
PF: Wright shows flashes of stardom. If he gains 15 more pounds and develops a go-to post move with a solid mid range shot he would be a hard man to handle.
C: Biedrins has shown he is one of the best rebounders in the league. He still is scoring 17 a game with very few post moves. If he got his weight up to around 250 and developed his post game a little more there is no reason to doubt 20-10 seasons from him.
Shooter: Morrow could be the 3 point specialist our 3 happy team needed. If he could be a 40-50 percent 3 point shooter while scoring 10-15 a game it would help the team very much.
Big Man: Richard Hendrix and Ronny Turiaf would have the meat on their bones to be presences defensively and difficult guards for opposing teams due to their strength, athletism, and quickness.
6th/7th Man: Stephen and Azubuike would be nice all around scorers off the bench someone to help out the pg duties while our pg would be out. Buike would be the efficent scorer who would score 10 in 20 minutes and stephen would provide clutch shots and defense.
The perfect coach to lead this team would be Rick Adelman because he would get this team to score 100-110 points a game while keeping the defense at a 97-104 points a game level unlike Nelson. He would incorporate small ball at times while using the half court offense in key, close situations.
I'd like to hear your thoughts on this post and hopefully it is good enough not to get deleted. THANKS GSOM
