The good folks over at NBADraft.net dropped an analysis of the Warriors' salary cap in State of the Cap: Golden State Warriors. The numbers are startling for a team tied for the 8th worst record in the league this past season.
2006/07 Estimated NBA Salary Cap: $52 million
Roughly: $12.7 million over cap
If you've been reading Golden State of Mind, nothing in this State of the Cap piece will come as new news to you. The take home points:
- JRich is the man
- Ike and Monta showed they can play
- Baron struggled with his shot this past season
- Foyle's contract is a monstrosity
- Dunleavy is regressing and received a bizzare contract extension (see 44 Reasons why giving Mike Dunleavy 44million wasn't the brightest idea Part I | Part II | Part III | Part IV )
- Troy's the most realistic, tradeable piece
NBADraft.net gave the Warriors a D, which seems generous. Put this state of crap in the context of a 12 year playoff drought (the league's longest) and the Warriors deserve an F- at best.
What grade would you give the Warriors as an organization this past year?
