Does anybody else see what I see?


I am going to be honest, ( I always am ) but also I want to put some things out there that I've noticed. This is my first post/Fan Shot, but I'f anyone who feels the need to discuss this then feel free to do so.  

Let's start with Reggie Williams, when he came to the Warriors straight out of the D-league he was as good as gold! I believe he was averaging twenty points a game at one point. You could just tell he had/has so much potential inside him. You see back then when his game was much similar to James Harden's from the Oklahoma City Thunder. He could be such a dynamic player, and a good asset to our team. However, the Warriors did cut his playing time, when the team got healthier. Then Keith Smart played him all wrong. Reggie became a late in the game three-point machine, which was successful and kept us in a few games; however I feel that he would have helped our team even more if he played more minutes. After that season was over and the 2010-2011 season started; I noticed something different about Reggie. After we gave him a contract , his vibe was more friendly and laid back; rather than being a hungry competitor. Which is what the Warriors mindset needs too be! For all of you that actually do go to the games (like i do) I'm sure you've seen Reggie Williams and Vladamir Radmonavic; messing around doing that little three-point contest during the shoot around. Which I am okay with that, they like to have fun; but I don't like it if it will translate to the court. Because if everyone isn't playing as hard as the possibly can, how can we expect to win a game? Let alone become a contender.

Vladimir Radmonavic; I know some of our fans like him because he hit that game winner against the Sacramento Kings. I'm not the biggest Vlad fan, I believe that to be a value to the team is consistency. To be able to put up solid numbers night in and night out. Honestly I don't see that about Vladimir. He averaged about five points per game; and does not know how to use his strengths. The man is 7'0 feet tall, he shouldn't be living at the three-point line! We have Monta Ellis, Stephan Cury, Dorrel Wright, Acie Law (on a good day), Reggie Williams, and don't forget about Klay Thompson, and Charles Jenkins. He is not effective from three point range in my book, but if you watch him in games that's where he lives. My only suggestion for Vlad besides trading him, is put him down low and mid-range in half-court. For a 7'0 vlad is pretty quick. he could run off screens and really be a threat close, other wise the Warriors are just wasting about six-million dollars a season on a bench warmer.

Which brings me to my next topic, Charlie Bell and the other Bench warmers (not just guards). I can only think of one outstanding game Charlie Bell had all season. But one out of eighty-two is simply just not enough, our players need to start producing/ We already have way to many guards. Where does that leave Charlie Bell (who is making twice as much money as Stephan Curry) and Acie Law? The Warriors got a nice set of new talent out of the Draft, but they have to figure out a rotation and roster that works too make the Warriors playoff contender.
