Our defense has looked absolutely HORRIBLE! No help defense, opposing teams are running free in our zone, and our players look too tired going 1-on-1.

Mark Jackson's rotations are starting to piss me off. When Bogut and Lee comes off the floor, he has Landry and Draymond manning the front court?! WTF, we finally have depth at the center spot!! Use Festus or Biedrins to defend against the bigger centers like Asik.
The schedule looks waaaay better from here on out. We just have to take care of business. Teams that spread the floor and have good shooters give us a lot of trouble. We just don't close out on them well enough. And when we do, we don't play good enough help defense. Jax and Malone have a full week to study and try to fix it. It's half defensive strategy, but it's half effort as well.

QUESTION: I know that Bogut must play, but what happened to letting Festus develop? He doesn't even sniff the floor now.

I was wondering the same thing in the post above yours. When Bogut was out, Festus was starting and Biedrins would occasionally get his minutes in. Now that Bogut is back, and we finally have depth at the position, Jackson still prefers to play small, letting Landry and Draymond defend against the bigs while letting Festus sit and watch

I totally agree. I though Ezili was playing well and giving the team some quality minutes. I dont advocate playing him 20 minutes a night but he should be playing 10 minutes or so. Continue his development! Jackson is starting to really piss me off .

The rotation has looked VERY Nellie-like. It seems like Jackson is worried about getting enough scorers on the floor, like having Landry and Lee out there getting outmatched by bigger guys. Put Ezeli in for strength, defense, and rebounds. You have enough scorers.

And don't get me started with Harrison Barnes seeing the better part of the bench the majority of the second half. I just don't get it. The guy is playing really well on BOTH sides of the court, yet, he sees the bench at crunch time.

He gets a very tight leash, unless he gets hot. It seemed as if he got lost in the flow of the offense last night. Klay shot 21x. Barnes should get a few of those looks.

I think it's funny that Jackson let Klay go through the growing pains last year as a rookie, gave him all the opportunity in the world to show that he can compete in the NBA, yet, he can't do the same for Harrison Barnes, who IMO is a MUCH BETTER prospect.

Why is that? Oh, because he can GET TO THE RIM OFF THE DRIBBLE???? Klay kills me sometimes. Make no mistake, he's a dead-eye shooter when he's on. But needs to find ways to get to the FT line when he's not. A lil more clever. A lot tougher.

Exactly. Barnes has shown a lot more athleticism than we all expected. Sure, he still needs to be more confident in his game, but his ability to drive and his ability to shoot should be enough for him to stay on the court. Not to mention his defense. He's got length to defend. KEEP HIM IN!
Apparently we're interested in Eric Gordon from NO.

Here's the link.

Part of me is intrigued, but I'd also be a little hesitant to have our starting backcourt consist of injury prone players.

However, like the author wrote, I'd be willing to deal Klay + Green + Andris for Gordon. I love Klay and, if I had to put money on it, I think he'll turn out to be a very solid player. However, he's been such a one dimensional player this year and has been very hard to watch.

Thoughts?

Isn't EG an undersized 2 guard that is also a chucker? Is this the final piece to a championship team?

I think Gordon is still a lot more efficient than Monta but welcome back small backcourt. And that's only if the guy is healthy which is never

Fuuuu that, don't do the trade!!

Curry and Klay are still developing. I understand that Klay has been frustrating SOMETIMES, but it's not like he's been awful. Dude is in his 2nd yr and still progressing.

I'm more worried about Gordon going down and us basically trading Klay & Draymond for nothing. I would be a little nervous having Curry, Gordon, and Bogut in a starting rotation. We're a risking boom or bust season year in and year out.

This is another Bogut like trade. When Gordon's healthy, this trade isn't even close. We would probably have to throw in Barnes to sweeten the deal.
