Are the Warriors Too Soft?

There is no doubt that the Warriors have talented young players on their roster, however it doesn't seem like we have any 'tough' competitors on the floor who are willing to get down and dirty against opposing players.

Looking down the list, we have players with 'nice' personalities that make them seem as if they wouldn't hurt a fly.  Guys like Biedrins, Reggie, BWright, Lin, Curry etc. look innocent and soft on and off the court.  I know it might sound crazy, but I would be glad to see a Warriors player get into a confrontation with an opposing player and have to be separated by the refs and other teammates. Why? Because come playoff time, opposing teams will play rough and dirty against you and they WONT' back down. If you display any form of weakness both mentally and physically other teams will take advantage of it.

I dont see any Warriors player willing to get in your face like a Matt Barnes or Ron Artest would. Rajon Rondo got into Kobe's face and cussed him out during the finals, can you picture Stephen Curry doing so?  Can you imagine Biedrins getting into it with a dirty player like Garnett? Nope.

We lack aggressiveness which, whether you like it or not, all legit playoff teams have. The We Believe team had swag--guys like Baron, Stack Jack, Barnes, and JRich were intimidating and willing to play rough and get in your face which is one of the reasons why we were able to beat the soft-minded Mavericks.

 Do you see the Warriors toughing up any time soon? Or do we need to bring players that are 'fierce (so to speak)?'
