2009 Golden State Warriors Off-Season Thread

No apparently you didn't watch segment. Rick Barry also said Lebron doesn't use screens effectively which is also crazy.

But the main comment is Lebron has Major flaws. If the most complete player in the Nba has major flaws what does that say about the rest of the league?

that everyone always has room to improve.

a legitimate comment that is taught at the lowest levels of athletics.

Whatever, youre so far off what my main comment was which was that Barry nailed the warriors situation, if you dont think his comments hold merit, great you can go ahead and twiddle your thumbs over it.

youre right, thats a great justification

what a stupid ass comment. when someone is better than you at something, you listen. thats how you get better.

are you ignorant? Everything Rick Barry did was 30 years ago. The league, the Rules and the competition has completely changed since then.

Telling Lebron to change his shot is stupid. He's already a top 2 player in the league and he's led the Cavs to the best record in the NBA.

LeBron is 6'8", built like a tank, and is one of the fastest players in the league. That's physical talent, whereas Barry is talking about a skill. A fundamental. Let's not act like LeBron is who he is because of his jump shot.
ANYWAY....get Rubio at all costs, IMO. The only guy that I wouldn't trade for him is Randolph.

Lebron will never be Reggie Miller type shooter, but he has far from major flaws in his game. Since you're defending Barry on this, I'll continue to let you argue against Lebron's major flaws.

If you want to talk room for improvement, maybe Rick should have worked with his two sons more often. lol

It depends on who has #2, but I'd say probably not. That team would have to really like Wright to make that move AND be set at PG. That's not a knock on Wright, but since the first "tier" is considered to have 2 players...it's gonna take a pretty sweet deal to get someone to move out of that.

Out of the teams ahead of you....

-Kings....Need a PG

-Wizards...Have Arenas, but would they consider a Rubio/Arenas backcourt? I bet they would.

-Clippers...They have Baron, but hate him. Could go either way.

-Thunder...Have a badass, young PG in Westbrook. Possible trade partner @ 2.

-T-Wolves...Need a PG.

-Grizzlies...They like Conley, but maybe Rubio tempts them? Possible trade partner.




Basically, we'll know how realistic a trade for Rubio is once we know who's picking #2.

Why can't LeBron be a great shooter?
What do you guys think of Brandon Jennings while were on the topic of PG.

If we couldnt trade to get Rubio, I think Jennings would be my next PG of choice and it would be between him and Evans at 7.
Jennings is just another small version of Sabastian Telfair, pass.

Might as well just go with Evans.
What's with all the new names? I have no idea who anyone is anymore.

Well, Jennings was the top PG out of high school last year who elected to go to Europe to play ball instead of college. Rubio, I'm sure you know who this kid is.

No, he's talking about the new usernames in this thread who weren't in the Warriors thread during the season.

Evans is the third best prospect in this draft after Rubio and Griffin.
