Well since we are all fans I guess we should worry. Cohan and Rowell got what they wanted. A team to make them money, just a team that will be exciting to watch but will never win it all. Why would they want that? If us Warrior fans get used to being a top 5 team in the west consistantly or even get the taste of the championship, we won't be selling out the Roaracle for a team that may make the 8th spot. If they keep us in limbo where we just pray to make the playoffs, they win, because if we make the lottery we can hope for the 8th spot next year, but if we are the 4 seed, next year we would want the 2 seed. Look at Laker fans, they cry and leave early if they are losing, and they don't show up if they're not 1-3 in the West. Cohan and Rowell don't want to have to worry about building a contender. If they can get us used to paying hella skrilla for mediocrety(which they have) why would they want us to get used to a winner. It's simple, they've kept us hoping for the 8th spot for 13 years, and we got it once, then we just barely missed the 8th seed, and now we are praying for it again. And if you think I'm bitter about it and am just making BS accusations and I have no proof, let's look what are front office has been up to.
First off, I'm not sure letting Baron go was a good idea, I thought Corey would make up for it, but I'm not sure. We still could've got Ronny for Pietrus' and Barnes' money. Our Lineup would've been Boom, Monta, Jack, BWright and Biedrins for the next 3 years. Al would NOT have been traded for Jamal. Instead for the next 3 years we have a starting lineup that has Monta, Jamal, Jack, Corey, and Biedrins.
That is an exciting lineup, but that is not going to win anything. Now if we were playing Dallas as the 1 seed from 2 years ago, we would kill them, but unfortunately the elite teams in the west are teams like LAL, Utah, and Houston. We are not going to play good defense or rebound against those teams. Also, why would we extend Nellie? Because Nellie knows how to put a high powered offensive lienup on the court but he won't have them playing D or reboudning. When Monta Ellis is the third best rebounder in your starting 5, you're in trouble. We have commited Corey Maggette to be our pf for 3 more years, CRAP!! He can play well there once in awhile, but he can't go there everygame for the majority of the time. Nellie is killing BWright's game. The kid could be a legit PF in this league by next year. Nellie is the coach you get to fill seats, he's the second winningest coach of all time, but he's not in the hall of fame because he has never even made it to the finals.
The best thing we can hope for is that Monta is only healthy enough to be our 6th man. Although Nellie will force him to start even at 80%. BWright will get to develop this year as the starting PF most nights. At the end of the year, Crawford decides to opt out, he has the option. Nellie realizes that Brandon needs to start and play more. We could also work on a trade to get rid of Jack, Maggs, or Jamal. But in all honesty, we should keep everyone and just hope Jamal opts out, because having him and Monta is redundant, especially when Maggs has to be a pf, plus we would have him and Adonal's salaries off the books after this year. Lastly, Nellie steps down and Jim Barnett decides to coach. He has been watching these kids play for a few years, he knows what kind of ball they're designed for, and he isn't going to small us out of games. He knows the game better than the back of his hand. Also someone would need to assassinate Cohan and Rowell, takers? How much would a hit cost? If we all decided to not throw a GSoM night for awhile it may be worth it to spend our money elsewhere.
