Does anyone know what happened to Klay last night? It didn't seem that serious, but when Blake dove for the ball he hit Klay and made him slam his head into the floor. Then he never returned.... Surprised no ones been talkin about it.
One possibility being explored is the disabled player exception, which would allow the Warriors to to add a 16th player to the roster for 50 percent of the disabled player's salary (in this case, $2 million).http://www.mercurynews.com/warriors/ci_21925027/golden-state-warriors Should the Warriors get another player? If they do, what is the cap situation like, and would they go into the luxury tax if they get someone else? Hopefully they look into bill walker.
"Remember the few golden years recently in Golden State, culminating in the playoff upset of the Mavericks in 2007? Well, this team is going to be different, but there might not be a better perimeter shooting group in the starting lineup than what the Warriors can offer with Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry and Barnes. The rookie was impressive in Las Vegas and continued to make shots in October. With his defensive upside being so much higher than those other two, Barnes can become the most valuable asset. Even if he were just a defensive player/shooter, that would be the case, but he has a real chance to be the Warriors' top scorer in time. In the short term, his coach is mostly focused on great defending every night, which works well for Barnes."ESPN Insider: NBA Rookie Watch (David Thorpe) http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/story/_/page/Rookies-121101/nba-rookie-watch-early-top-10
What will determine if he will play or not will be the shootaround and if he feels any soreness. According to head coach Mark Jackson "if he plays, he’ll start." If he does not play rookie Festus Ezeli will start and Andris Biedrins is the backup.Golden State Warriors C Andrew Bogut To Make Debut Tonight
Stephen Curry extension talks are progressingNo source to quote so you gotta take my word for it.
Golden State: Everyone loves Klay Thompson (including me), an old-school two-guard who defends well, shoots 3s and gets to the rim. If you're Golden State, would you rather pay Thompson a rookie-scale salary these next three seasons … or Harden four times as much? In a vacuum, you'd pick Thompson because Harden doesn't bring you any closer to a title these next three years. But let's say you were trying to make a splash and thought Harden's game, recognizable beard and Team USA pedigree would appeal to your beyond-tortured fan base? You might think about it … right?The Harden Dilemma- http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/8486795/the-harden-dilemma I floated this idea before, but if OKC seriously isn't going to pay the tax or dump ibaka or perkins, would you sign and trade Klay Thompson (+ what'd be a one year expiring of Biedrins or Jefferson) for Harden? He's approximately 5 months older than Klay, and much more proven.
What is the best way to post a question for discussion? For example... is there any way to watch/listen to tonight's preseason game v Denver?
Marc J. Spears @SpearsNBAYahoo @Warriors coach @JacksonMark13 , a New Yorker, wearing an A's hat at playoff game and took BART. Retweeted by Mark Jacksonhttps://twitter.com/JacksonMark13 I actually saw him getting off bart. In a full sweatsuit with an A's hat. Give him a quick "Go Dubs!" he turned smiled and gave a wave. I wanted to get a word with him, but you all know how the overpass is 15 minutes before a game.
Warriors coach Mark Jackson is pondering sitting PG Steph Curry one of the first two preseason games, either Sun vs. Lakers or Mon vs. UtahIs the ankle fine?!
I bought 2k13 and just started playing it. One thing: Draymond Green isn't on the Warriors roster lol. They did this last year with Chris Wright. Draymond is a rookie, he should be there lol.NBA 2k13
