First off, I would like to say there has been many many " possible trade" threads and most likely none of them would even happen. I don't think the Warriors have to make many trades except for the 2 obvious ones, Corey Maggette and Jamal Crawford.
And then there is the untouchable list. This list are the names of the players on the Warriors roster I would really hate to see leave in a trade this offseason. Also it could happen this upcoming draft.
I don't know why people are so eager to hope for trades right away just because of a major losing season.
You have to remember this year, the Warriors starting five was the most in the NBA to have a different starting lineup. Look at the teams that MADE the PLAYOFFS, their starting lineup has been the same and consistent. I know the Lakers lineup changes once and a while, putting Lamar Odom back and off the bench and same goes for Walton and Ariza, but those are little changes.
For the Warriors, there were so many different starting 5's I can't even remember how many. I know for sure it was more than 10 and it was rare to see a lineup you'd like. Except for the near end of the year when Monta was in the lineup, things were Slightly better.
What I'm trying to say is that the thing I would hate to see is a good team roster, I personally believe( When fully healthy) to Break up this team, By making trades... when this team's roster looked nothing like it did in the beginning of the year. - Demarcus Nelson starting, Disgruntled Al Harrington still playing, they're both gone now and new players like Morrow, Randolph, even Davidson/ Kurz had shown good vibes late in the season. Brandan Wright and Marco Bellineli, especially Marco, had shown growth from last year, EVEN with the VERY MINIMUM playing time they both got.(Damn you Nellie)
Isn't it very stupid and naive to 'rearrange' a nice roster that we have currently, by some stupid trades....
I know at least ONE PERSON is going to say " Look at the Warriors past and what the FO has done with the trades, stupidity there? Messed up the We Believe team"
Messed up the We Believe team, I don't want this new team to be get messed up too. And I GARUN-DAMN-TEE if we keep this current team and a with a draft pick, playoffs will be for certain.
Here are a list of players I would really hate to see in a trade this offseason:
Here's a list the players I ' don't really mind and won't be so bad if they were traded:
-Monta Ellis, Corey Maggette, Jamal Crawford, CJ Watson, Kurz, Davidson.
And we're pretty much stuck with our 'Captain Jack' because I'm sure no team would make a trade for him.
With all that said... here are the Do's and Don'ts:
-Do give effort to trade Corey Maggette if possible, his contract is sickening.
-Do hope Jamal opts out( great person & handler, horrible in-game player)
-Do sign a FA something like; Andre Miller, Gortat, etc
-Do look to improve.
-Don't trade away key players that rarely had the chance to shine.
-Don't get into any 'Moped incidents' this offseason.
-Don't make any stupid trades that would remind us of the trades/off-season before.
