Dear Mr. Lacob and co.
I know intentional losing is not something you want embedded in this team's/organization's DNA, but as our owner I would expect you to do what is necessary to secure and obtain all the things that would contribute to a bright future for Golden State. I really hope that extra win was worth losing a very important asset. Not just a potential contributor to a successful team or that missing piece at small forward, but also a possible trade chip to get a difference maker. This has been the most stressful and the least fun season I've followed in an incredibly long time. We try and root for a winning team and suffer. We try and root for a successful tank, and suffer. (I've never rooted against my team so vehemently before, and cheered opposing three pointers so strongly...and frankly is feels dirty.)
Warriors fans are used to suffering, but there is a difference between losing positioning in the draft with wins (which the Warriors do EVERY year) and having wins cause us to lose a high draft pick COMPLETELY. I honestly can't tell you how you are/were supposed to go about keeping our draft pick...but as an owner who is very aware of the passion/needs/wants of his fanbase, and as the leader of a NO EXCUSE basketball team, I expect results from you. Draft picks, Trades, Contracts, Cap Room - all things off court...all things that are supposed to be your arena. Sure you can say we will be just fine with Bogut, Curry, Klay and Lee - but I'm tired of doing just fine. After all these years as a Warrior fan, I feel I have the right to be a little greedy. Thank you for your passion, your effort, and your time....now show me more.
Please send Larry Riley, David Khan and The Utah Jazz my regards.
