Not too long ago, we were a team with way too many guards on the roster, but losing CJ Watson and Anthony Morrow, we are left with just Charlie Bell, Stephen Curry, and Monta Ellis in the guard spots. Shannon Brown is a player with great potential (thankfully the lakers have not seen it) and will fit in beautifully in our offense. He averaged just 8 ppg this year but it was in just 20 minutes per game because Phil Jackson find Fisher better (why?). He is an explosive athlete with a decent jumpshot and a reasonably good defender.
Look into his eyes, he wants to be a Warrior. (via SkieBaby)
In LA, Brown was not given sufficient playing time behind Fisher even though he did outperform him consistently. In Nellie's offense, these type of players have the ability to thrive where in other teams it would not be possible. With Monta and Curry we have one of the best backcourts in the league, adding Brown will make it even stronger. He has the ability to run the floor, finish at the rim, and put it mid-long range shots. He will be be a very big presence coming off the bench behind Monta.
I'll be honest, I hate the Lakers, with a passion. The only player that I could stand was Brown because he was the only player who played the game well, without the flops or shows, the whining to the refs, and the arrogance (yes i am directly referring to kobe). The Warriors play the Lakers 4 times each season, so we get a pretty good look at their players, and Brown has obvious potential.
It is also a great deal for us because his salary from last season was just 2 million so a David Lee sized contract would not need to be given. The Warriors will also have enough to look for other players to fill the center and small forward spots.
But LA and other teams are also on the move to sign him so we better hurry!
