"Obviously, nabbing Bosh would require the Warriors to move a big name — Biedrins or Ellis — and some young talent to help Toronto rebuild. So this just shows that they are willing. The fact that they are throwing their name in the hat for these big players, even if futile, is a change in pace. These two were untouchable. Now, the Warriors are willing to play all their cards, even though they haven’t seen everyone healthy for a significant length of time yet."
It's good to see that in contrast with many Warriors bandwagoners and homers, the Warriors front office seems to (finally) believe that Andris Biedrins and Monta Ellis are not untouchable. Unless he makes some serious strides in his defense (which seems unlikely), given his lack of basketball fundamentals or drive to even add a simple jumpshot to his game after 4 years in the league, Biedrins has probably leveled off as a nice, solid player, but nothing close to spectacular. Let's ignore Monta's absolutely dismal 2008-2009 outing for second. Even if he returned to being the high scoring and efficient player he showcased last season, his atrocious D, sloppy handles, and poor court vision might be too much for him to overcome to take that next step to All-Star guard in the loaded West.
On a 17-35 team no one is untouchable. I'm not really sure that either player is that big of a name outside of the Bay Area right now. I'd be surprised if any team was as high on either player as the We Suck fandom and front office, but let's hope they are. This team and its longtime fanbase desperately needs All-Star level players, not guys with "ridiculous upside" to borrow a phrase from our friends
