GSoM friend Preetom Bhattacharya dropped his insights on the Warriors in No Baker's Dozen for Warriors on Hoopsworld.com. Pree sees the Warriors as a playoff squad even without Allen Iverson:
Yet the fans of the team that calls the ORACLE home needn't worry that their playoff drought will continue - even with the Dubs not landing Iverson.
After Friday night's 105-101 loss to the scorching Suns, the Warriors now find themselves right at .500 (12-12). While most may feel that the team's start - inconsistent play mixed in with upsets and blowouts - is an exemplar for what will end up being another mediocre season, the reality is that Coach Don Nelson is treading water until the team is completely healthy and ready to make noise in the Western Conference; not championship noise, but there will be a playoff buzz in Oakland before year's end.
Definitely check out the rest of his thoughts on the Dubs.
