In honor of a nice win...

I've posted very rarely this season, but the W's are really getting fun to watch, and i thought I'd post a few things.

  1. The W's don't generally get much love from the rest of the league/media. At a TV break, I switched to the Nuggets/PaperClips game, just in time to hear them discussing whether the Nuggets or Rockets would grab the 8th seed. They seemed rather confident the Warriors would be #7.
  2. This has probably already been posted, but was perusing NBA.Com today, and saw a little love for GSoM....go to the entry on Feb. 27

3) Also, I thought of a question today. Can a team win a championship with a true upper-echelon PG?  It sounds like a ridiculous question, but bear with me.  Every team in the NBA has talent.  Enough ball movement generally leaves a guy open for a shot, or an open lane.  When teams have a great PG (the likes of Kidd, Nash, BDiddy, etc.), he tends to try and control the game.  He tries to make a great pass instead of simply making the easy pass that leads to the easy pass that leads to the easy pass that leads to the high-percentage 15 footer.  While that style of ball (San Antonio, anyone?) is very boring compared to the Warriors, I can't help but wonder if it's the key to winning, in this entertainment obsessed league.  Looking back at the teams in the finals the past few years, none have had a stellar PG.  The Spurs had Parker (who has become great, but is really just a small SG), the Pistons had Billups (a very good PG, but not a great passer), the Heat had Jason Williams, the Mavericks Jason Terry, and the Cavs Daniel Gibson.  Meanwhile, Kidd, Nash, Baron, and the other great passers in the league go ringless.

I wouldn't trade Baron for the world, but the strange question begs to be asked. do you think the Warriors can win a title eventually, with such a magnificent passer running the show?

Until next time, peace.
