The following is a comment I posted on this Wages of Wins post today, which I can almost guarantee will not get published there, so I'm posting it here instead.
I remember when Jeremy said the Warriors would win 50 games a couple seasons ago, because of David Lee.
But then some stuff happened, David Lee got hurt, so that probably was the reason they didn’t make it.
So, then he said when David Lee got healthy, they’d probably win 40 or 50.
Alas, that didn’t quite work out the way Jeremy had predicted.
I think for now I’ll trust Myers who did what many of us had wanted for a long time. He shipped off Monta Ellis and he brought in a legitimate big man in Bogut. Injuries are risks that every team faces. But without taking these risks, the Warriors had very little chance of improving.
And for all the anti-tanking logic around here and elsewhere, the Warriors now have a much better chance of keeping their lottery pick than they did halfway through the season. A season that was going nowhere fast, anyway.
