dont get me wrong. i'm a huge warriors fan and i've been watching all the games down in la on my slingbox and i'm excited about all the young players but i see something missing in the general attitude of the team.
back in the year of that there was a certain nastiness to the team. guys like baron, jrich, barnes, pietrus and stack jack werent scared to get in anybody's face after a hard foul or missed call. that aggressiveness translated to the court and gave the team a presence that other (probably more skilled) teams couldnt match. i just dont see any body on the current team with that same attitude. i mean when has a warrior had a rimshaking dunk this year a la baron or jrich in past years.
im all for sportsmanship and composure but a good scuffle here or there during the season is healthy. captain jack and ronny certainly have it the attitude to match the team of two years ago. and ive seen glimpses of it from morrow and itll probably increase with experience. but guys like monta, biedrins, buke, wright, randolph, watson appear too laid back and soft right now to be a top tier team
