This is my first fanpost even though i've been a reader for 2 years now. I just wanted to get a feel for who everyone watches the warriors for the most. I decided to rate them on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being someone you absolutely love to watch and 1 being kinda how most people felt about watching Mikki Moore playing 30 mins earlier in the year (Oh yeah!!!!).
I will start from top to bottom:
Anthony Randolph (9) : As easy as he is my favorite player to watch on the team. He has freakish potential. He has some of that swagger that the "we believe" team had (remember his confrontations with Danny Granger this year and Lamar Odom last year?). I would give him a 10 if he would be more humble and realize that he has a lot more to work on his game and to not expect to be playing 40 mins a game just cuz he was a lottery pick. Otherwise, I would really love if the team holds on to him and develop him.
Anthony Morrow (8) : Love his demeanor, and I love shooters like him anyways (Reggie Miller is one of my all time fav NBA players), and he is what I hope more warriors do as far as work hard, love the fans and give his all.
Monta Ellis (8): He is just fun to watch and our best player.
Steph Curry (8): He isn't flashy but he is part of our future (at least for now) and he has a good vibe about him. His basketball IQ is very good. Good guy.
Andris Beadrins, Ronny Turiaf (7) : Love their energy and support for their teammates. I love when bench players get up and support the players on the court.
Corey Maggette (6) : Oh man. Hard to really rate him. I hated his game last season and early in this season, but considering the tear he has been on recently and his professionalism considering the boos, the trade speculations and the warrior drama., he probably went from like a 2 to a 6 over the course of the season.
The rest of the team:
Kelenna Az (6): Good all around player. Too bad he got inj.
Cj (3) : I just don't think he will be here next year and his game bores me.
B. Wright (N/A): If he would ever get injury free, then I'd know how I feel about him. Otherwise, trade his ass for Bosh.
C. Hunter (4): Go Blue! I'm a Michigan alum so he gets bonus points there but man he isn't that good. He's had some good games but normally hes pretty bad. Especially at finishing around the basket and rebounding.
Vlad (2): I just hate him. Can't stand to watch him play.
D. George (1): No need to explain.
Cartier Martin, and other future Dleagers (3): They are just here cuz of injuries. See Cj.
Raja Bell (7): I love what he could bring if healthy. Leadership, grit, toughness, competitiveness. He isnt the Defensive Ace he once was but hes definately better than any wing defender we have. He and monta could be a better than avg defensive backcourt and in warriorland that is rare.
I'm really passionate about this team and I watch them no matter who's playing but this season has been hard, especially these past few weeks either w/out ammo and/or AR4. I just hope Larry Riley (who is growing on me over the past year) will swing a good deal for us b4 the deadline. I really think he's trying but there isn't much there and he knows that A list FA won't come to us so trades has to be his priority.
