6 losses in a row with 5 of them on the road and all of them by at least 10 points. I didn't expect the Warriors to win any of those road games but to get beat by an average of nearly 17 per game makes me wonder if the players still care. This is in no way a defense of Coach Smart, but getting blown out multiple times in a row is on the players. These teams are clearly better than the Warriors, but not "we're going to blow you out every game" better.

So if the players don't care anymore, should the fans? Or rather, do the fans care anymore?

For myself, I don't care if the Warriors win. It's hard to watch the team lose, but if the only thing left for this team to achieve is a "better" losing record for a chance at a higher draft pick, then I'm all for it.

"Long term thinking" is a nice way to put it.

The real way to put it is "I give up".

When is this team going to consistently play some meaningful games in at least February and March? Forget April and May, the Warriors routinely don't give the fans a postseason to hope for by the time Valentine's Day hits.

Mr. Joe Lacob, at least fire Rowell and give the fans something to cheer about.

Oh yea, this is a game thread.

The Raptors are worse than the Warriors. Warriors should win especially since they're at home. I don't know any players on the Raptors worth writing about until that player drops 40 points on us.

Predictions

  • Warriors by 4
  • At the arena, there are more people in the lounges than in their seats watching the game
