The 2008-2009 season campaign for the Golden State Warriors was a season to forget. A year filled with injuries, players not having that "winning" attitude, roster consistency (not good), bad decisions by the GM's this past off season. Or may I say the past two seasons.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to hate on the Warriors, I'm just expressing the frustration that has been going on with the whole organization. It's just that the front office has made ridiculous decisions. Trading off Jason Richardson to the Bobcats for Bredan Wright who has not made ANY progress, even Anthony Randolph has made more progress than he did. The, not re-signing Baron Davis? but re-signing an aging coach who basically makes the most unpredictable moves? Baron Davis WAS the reason why the Warriors made the playoffs in 2007 and the reason why they had a fantastic year the year after.
The Warriors had a terrible game on Monday night against the Spurs. After a convincing win in Uta
I really don't know what's happening, but I just hope that this off season they get there act together. Unfortunately, there is some players that will be playing there last games as a Warrior. For example, Jamal Crawford will surely not be in a Warriors uni next yera. Kelenna Azubuike won't be there for sure, he said it him self in the media.
"We need more of a winning attitude from top to bottom," Kelenna Azubuike said. "It's tough to say (what changes) we need because I'm not the G.M. On paper, we're pretty good. But we've got a lot of guards. That's plain to see. ... Maybe we should go a different direction. But either way, we need to get a winning attitude. We need everybody on the same page. We need consistency. We need to get a swagger about us, and maybe add a few pieces to the mix."
I agree with Azu. If you can only imagined if they kept that 2007 group together until now. Probably just tweaking a few parts in the roster would be fine, but not meaning trading away J-Rich and what not. Just get quality role players. If only, I just bet you that the words "Should've, Could've, Would've" is going through the minds of the front office and the coaches.
