It's my last recap of the season, so jump!

I'll keep this short because I've got report cards to write. I'll also try to keep this positive because there's plenty of time this offseason to rip this sorry franchise for yet another sorry season and I'd like to end the season off on somewhat of a high note. So here goes:

  • I am overcome with joy that the Warriors finally have a young defensive interior player with some serious upside. Wait till Ekpe Udoh hits the gym this offseason and puts on some more weight. As he fills out, he's going to be a defensive force in this league for years to come. I don't expect that much improvement in terms of offense and rebounding, but his defense is going to be something to track. I can dig his 6 swats and tenacious D tonight.
  • It's always a pleasure watching Stephen Curry run the Warriors rather than being forced to stand on the perimeter without the ball. 27-5-5 on some red hot shooting ain't no joke. If only Nellie was here this season- okay, I'll just let you fill in the blank.
  • Dorell Wright chipped in 27 points tonight and continues to be the best $3.5 million dollar veteran bargain in the association. Props to Larry Riley's front office for the find. I bet LeBron wishes Mr. 1 R and 2 L's kept his talents in South Beach.
  • Jeremy Lin does not have an NBA ready scoring game, but he can pass and defend really well off the bench. He's got a solid future in the league if he can just pick up his shooting percentages this offseason.

Thanks All Folks!

Big shoutout to the entire GSoM Crew for blogging another season of Golden State Warriors basketball! On an editorial note, It's getting more difficult for us all as we age to keep GSoM as unstoppable baby as we've all become accustomed to. I thank the rest of the writing staff and the community at large for keeping this place golden as it moves in new directions. I know the Warriors can be frustrating to say the least, but I still enjoy coming here daily as a writer and hoops junkie. Thank you.


I'm handing my last Warrior Wonder of the 2010-2011 Golden State Warriors season to IQofaWarrior of the GSoM Crew. Please join me in thanking the good man for all the Dubs love he's given us on the front page this season. Win or lose you can trust this good man will bring it with the Warriors Game Day Links. That my friends is...

1 Dub. 1 Luv.

Stay tuned for the final preview/ recap of the season!
