And something I caught kinda made me double take...when he mentioned how the Warriors had offered the most money, and how Golden State was "Working on some things to get that team over the top..." THIS makes me feel good about the organization...Elton pretty much new the Warriors are trying to become that contending team, but he felt he had a better shot in Philly, considering they just made a good stand in the playoffs, not to mention it's MUCH easier in the East.
He goes on to say that Baron even encouraged him to join GS when they offered the most money, and he thanked Golden State for such a great offer..blah blah blah..Sounds to me like they let him on some of the idea's they had to shape the squad sans Baron, and it make me feel good to hear it coming from someone outside of the organization.
So far, I think we all felt Maggette was overpaid, though as I'm reading from most "insiders" and "anaylsts" they say that the price was pretty reasonable for him, now with Turiaf hopefully signing, I've check out Laker blogs/boards and the consensus is that he'll be a player the team will miss dearly, and he was the spark from they're bench more often that not.
Now, I know were not done, rumors about Al being shopped around(Thanks Pree) and a bunch of FA PG's out there, not to mention the cap space we have, we seem to be waiting for the next "Breaking News" report, but how well do you guys think Mully n Crew have handled this offseason so far?
Considering the BD and MP departures unavoidable, what would you rate the MOVES the Warriors have made thus far during the offseason?
A. They're putting together a BETTER team than last year! Playoff Bound! (10 votes)
B. They done a good jobe of remaining competative, and are a fringe team again. (83 votes)
C. They back to square one, and will be back a .500 ball. (47 votes)
D. We're lottery bound, this team can't compete in the West. (17 votes)
F. This team sucks! (But I'm not a real W's Fan anyway since I chose this option.) (2 votes)
