At this point I agree. In a couple of years we will really know based on how all 3 develop as players. All I know is the Warriors got a steal at #30.

Strongly disagree.

I can tell you this much.. there would be ZERO chance that I would trade Barnes and Ezili for Drummond.

Strongly disagree.

All based on Drummond's potential as a big? A big that hasn't really shown how physical he can play in the post. He's got a lot of potential, for sure, but at worst, he can be a Chris Wilcox/Glen Davis combination. Best case, looks like an Amare Stoudamire.

With Barnes and Ezeli, their player comparisons could turn out to be Rudy Gay/Luol Deng and Kendrick Perkins respectively.
I'll be at the game tonight vs. Atlanta. Hall of Fame night and Nellie is gonna be there.

Anyone plan on being at the game?

Of course he was. There was no chance in hell that you could get a center like Bogut if he was 100% healthy at the time for a small shooting guard like Monta Ellis. Warriors rolled the dice and I still think it was worth the gamble. Warriors were never going to win with Ellis-Curry. Just wasnt gonna happen,

Agreed with this. The only thing I dont agree with is I think we traded the wrong small shooting guard (yes, thats what Curry is at this point).

Well we had Klay on the bench waiting to start
Nate Robinson was the backup PG last year lol

Honestly I'd take a healthy Steph Curry over Monta
Monta is so overrated by warriors fans. He's a great scorer but that's really all he can do. I honestly wouldn't trade Klay Thompson for Monta
Monta averaged 20 points per game but the guy shoots 20 times a game too. And he can't defend an average SG

LOL at the bolded statement.

If that's all you think, then he was UNDERRATED. Yes, he could score, but he did much more than that. I bring this up ALL THE TIME. Every time people came on here and said Monta can't do this, or do that, he worked his ass off and proved people wrong. He became a better passer, a better defender, a better shooter outside the arc, a better free throw shooter, etc. The guy continually worked on his game and was a lot more durable than Steph. When Steph was out because of ankle issues, Monta built chemistry with David Lee and Ekpe Udoh. IMO, Udoh developed better from Monta's game.

Not gonna try and make this another Curry vs. Ellis argument, but come on. Curry could end up being the better player but he's just so limited because of his ankle.

I never said he sucked or anything lol I just said he's overrated by warrior fans. Warrior fans treat him like a superstar here and he's far from that.

At the same time that fans praised him, the others underrated him just as you did. He wasn't an all star mainly because the all star system was flawed anyways and he wasn't better than Kobe, etc. He was still our best player without a formidable surrounding cast and a coaching staff that had difficult times developing rookies.

I didn't underrate him lol I was a huge Monta fan.
And I never said anything about being an all star. Being an all star means nothing. Yao Ming got voted to all star games when he didn't play in seasons lol. Tmac too

Fans treated him like he was an amazing player that we should've built around to win. They really thought and some still think that he was a supertar (not all star )

I'm probably in the minority in this thread, but I feel like we could have built around him.

Catch 22. We would need a Derrick Rose like point guard to compliment his game

I honestly feel like Charles Jenkins could have been pretty good. Strong, physical, stout guard that could defend. Or get a tall combo guard like Evan Turner that looks to pass.
