The Warriors' (not so) Scary Summer Squad

Tony Mejia of CBS SportsLine dropped grades for each of the summer squads. The Warriors drew yet another "rave review":

It was another painful Summer League stint for the Warriors, who nearly lost major piece Monta Ellis to a knee injury. Thankfully, his problem ended up being a bruise rather than anything major, so all that was really lost was experience. Ike Diogu, cautious with his knees, also missed key playing time. So did Chris Taft. Andris Biedrins strained a groin muscle and rookie Patrick O'Bryant has a ways to go. It hasn't been a good start to 2006-07. Grade: D

I never put much stock in summer league play. Remember, Devean George looked like a superstar in the making a years back in the summer leagues. I would go so far to say that it's a waste of time to even watch.  I'd actually give the Warriors an A for their summer in the City of Sin. They took all the necessary precautions with Ike and Monta by not risking further injury in meaningless games. The season starts in November, not July.

Don't let the Warriors' poor performance in the Vegas Summer League scare you!

What's your grade for the Warriors' Summer League play?
