the curse. (aka sprewell)

    i'm typically not superstitious but my last excuse for the warriors may be a reasonable one. the curse of notorious latrell sprewell.

(correction thanks to evil monkey, st. jean did not become gsw gm till start of 97/98 season. so some irrelevant facts but it does not distract my point.) it all began when general manager garry st. jean was hired in may of 1992. his first big job was the upcoming draft, and the his 24th pick of the first round was none other than mr. sprewell. he was a young promising guard hailing from the college of alabama. but what promises did he keep with the warriors? he displayed nothing but selfishness and disgrace as the warriors went on to a 34-48 record in his rookie 92/93 season. his first season, his curse shadowed the warriors with the absence due to injuries of star players; chris mullin, tim hardaway, sarunas marciulionis and billy owens.

i could go on describing sprewell's mishaps througout his warrior career but my point is, the warriors since his 92/93 season debut will suffer for 15 seasons, the number on his warriors jersey. i could point out all the horridness and disappointments of sprewell but that would be another blog. the warriors will not see their real potential until the 15 years of bad air that sprewell left us with is over, which would be the the 2011/2012 season. can you wait warriors fans? im not trying to hate on what we've done the past couple of seasons, but its a tease, not even a super hero baron davis could cure. but maybe the cure is coming with rising heroes on our current squad; monta ellis and andris biedrins. but yet what curse of sprewell has hit those two, ridiculous half season injury and bad freethrow shooting. thats just a stab at latvia, i can't think of anything really negative to say about biedrins.

if this is something worth elaborating on or you might be interested hearing more about get at me, let me know.
