so we dont spam up the main thread with too much gsw stuff

I totally missed Avery Bradley is on the team now

brimstead, Thursday, 14 October 2021 23:01 (one year ago) link

he might not make the final roster. everyone is hoping its gary payton II. bradley has looked bad in the minutes ive seen him and hasnt looked good in a few seasons really

My understanding is: Payton is signed for this season so they'd have to eat the money for this season if they waive him. Bradley is on an exhibit 10 which they could convert to a 2-way even if they keep Payton. If they cut Payton they'd have to have him pass through waivers to sign him to a two-way.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Thursday, 14 October 2021 23:14 (one year ago) link

actually, bradley is ineligible for a two-way due to service time, so he would have to be a straight up g-leaguer

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Thursday, 14 October 2021 23:20 (one year ago) link

hmm. i think they should roll w GP2. Obv if AB was even like 80% of what he was he would be better but I like the idea of a real defensive ball hawk that's young and hungry to prove himself.

Spottie, thanks for creating a safe space to talk about how Jordan Poole will make the all star team this year

Fetchboy, Friday, 15 October 2021 01:40 (one year ago) link

haha i think 6th man of the year would be ideal honestly, or most improved. he may get too many starts in klays absence to be eligible for 6moy. either way im probably more excited to see him play than anything outside of klays return.

Nice to see Steph and Dray at the Giants game.

that's not my post, Friday, 15 October 2021 03:56 (one year ago) link

well thats an option i guess. might not be too bad an idea to leave that spot open for buyout spot idk

Warriors waived tonight: Jordan Bell, Avery Bradley, Mychal Mulder and Gary Payton II. 15th roster spot open for now.

aww was kinda rooting for bell.

yeah same, i thought he was a building block!
is payton's son an nba player for the long haul or no? i haven't seen enough of him.

When Young Sheldon began to rap (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 16 October 2021 19:21 (one year ago) link

apparently payton II can’t do anything at all on offense

call all destroyer, Saturday, 16 October 2021 19:49 (one year ago) link

Yah report on him is that he’s an all time on ball defender but a zero on offense. Like a shorter and worse offensive player than tony Allen

so.... euroleague?

Toscano-Anderson said their friendship helped him survive in the NBA, a place he “thought I knew” but discovered was far different. He trusts Lee with his deepest thoughts.

“You need that. You need that in life, you know, as men we don't express ourselves when we don't find people we can just be vulnerable with. Not only as men, but as Black men. We tend to just kind of mask that stuff.”

they won with that lineup! know your opponent i guess.

When Young Sheldon began to rap (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 20 November 2021 15:43 (one year ago) link

Good stuff from Poole and Wiggins last night. Once klay comes back Poole will fill his rightful role as the microwave 6th man and he’ll be able to maximize his strengths a little more.

Spottie, Saturday, 20 November 2021 15:55 (one year ago) link

Donte coming back this week will help big time and poole simply cant play any worse. so i think this will correct itself a bit but they for sure need some more veteran depth/presence for a long playoff run. meyers interview this week sounds like if things dont shape up they're ready to make moves

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Thursday, 10 November 2022 00:10 (three weeks ago) link

poole simply cant play any worse.

he doesn't have to and no one's asking him to. but that isn't the issue, is it?

more difficult than I look (Aimless), Thursday, 10 November 2022 02:16 (three weeks ago) link

No he’s not thee issue but his play is not helping and it’s showing the team he can’t run the second unit as the lead guy, at least not with this mix. He’s so much better as a starter next to curry so I bet they’ll mix those minutes a bit more

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Thursday, 10 November 2022 04:29 (three weeks ago) link

right time in the season to fuck around and see with the lineup i suppose; would still be shocked if the warriors ended up in the playins

Tangent:

we're all waiting on Jordan Poole to regain his form (53.5% True Shooting, 59.8% TS last season) and confidence

What if last year was a fluke and this is the real JP.

Rabbity Gainsborough (Leee), Friday, 11 November 2022 22:18 (three weeks ago) link

klay was out he was cooking. but he also cooked in the playoffs in limited minutes. he had a cold spell last season as well. klay always does too. they'll both get better from here.

Is this a Dray starting rather than DLee situation where Poole should start over Klay ?

that's not my post, Tuesday, 15 November 2022 18:14 (two weeks ago) link

i dont think its gonna happen but its something to think about for sure, at least until klay gets to form (whatever the top end of his form is now)

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Tuesday, 15 November 2022 18:24 (two weeks ago) link

Yes this needs to happen - I think it will by the end of the season if Klay doesn't improve on both ends of the floor significantly

octobeard, Tuesday, 15 November 2022 18:59 (two weeks ago) link

Or ... and hear me out, Klay is traded. His contract is Westbrook levels bad if continues to play like this - he's slated to make over 40+ million next year. Drop him and a pick or three to a team and then resign Dray and have Poole start.

I know it feels like sacrilege to break up the Splash Bros but it's better now than end of next year.

octobeard, Tuesday, 15 November 2022 19:00 (two weeks ago) link

if theyre going to make a trade they need to get better, moving a first to dump a contract is basically giving up on this team

lag∞n, Tuesday, 15 November 2022 19:02 (two weeks ago) link

Klays not going anywhere. He did enough in th playoffs to show he’s still impactful.

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Tuesday, 15 November 2022 19:12 (two weeks ago) link

I could just see Klay not accepting a bench role and pouting, affecting performance. I could see them ditching him for maybe a decent veteran depth piece then. I do feel nostalgia might get in the way of winning with these guys.

Also Klay's pride has been almost blinding lately. If the team is better with Poole starting now, he needs to accept that ASAP and get over himself

octobeard, Tuesday, 15 November 2022 19:23 (two weeks ago) link

starting poole prob isnt worth the drama, now giving poole some of klays minutes could be worth looking into

lag∞n, Tuesday, 15 November 2022 19:29 (two weeks ago) link

hard to know with klay. hes never had the spotlight on him so even during his monthlong shooting slumps in the past or playing poorly in playoff games he usually escaped any scrutiny. but they arent winning right now and he keeps hoisting with no conscious. pretty much every other big player on the team has sacrificed or done something for the greater good of the team. i think it would be an easier sell than you think IF his poor play continues on into 2023. but who knows. hes earned enough good will to have a long rope and thats ok. where he is right now is where i thought hed be when he came back last season. so even if his max is what he showed in the playoffs/finals... its enough.

pooles gonna get his minutes regardless but he seems to be so much more aggressive playing as a starter. he might also need to suck it up and figure it out coming off the bench. also needs to get himself to a passable place on defense so he can be trusted at the end of games. klay is leagues beyond him in that regard even tho hes not what he was.

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Tuesday, 15 November 2022 19:38 (two weeks ago) link

wiseman breakup is likely but the hope im sure is that he figures it out in the g league like poole did

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Tuesday, 15 November 2022 19:38 (two weeks ago) link

also no one is leaving klay open and he still warps defenses with movement. thats still important even if he's not shooting his normal percentages atm.

He’s young enough and unproven enough and maybe showed just enough his rookie year that I don’t think the warriors would have to throw in another asset to trade him, if the right trade is out there.

that top three in shot location quality is just not that correlated with actual shot defense, its nice to force teams to take the bad shots but you have to get good contests too, if guys are just stepping into good 17 footers or whatever its not that great

lag∞n, Thursday, 17 November 2022 22:19 (two weeks ago) link

no but it kinda matches the eye test. the defense is pretty bad right now but stuff like payne and bridges hitting 11/18 from three has been happening. theyre also getting killed on the glass and no one seems particularly locked in.

celtics d has picked up but at the very beginning of the season they were sucking while using shot location defense to uh defend themselves but watching them they just werent playing with intensity, the scheme was good but there just wasnt enough dog in the execution, think they were last in steals too, just not gonna get the job done

warriors bench is figuring it out. kuminga has looked solid last few games and he should start to get more and more rope as the season goes on. if they can stick him on the likes of luka and he holds up then youve got something.

Jonathan Kuminga just completed one of the better halves of his young career. Bothered Luka Doncic in isolation, rebounded well, came weak side for a block, worked the baseline for cutting dunks. He was a +19 in 14 minutes. Here are a few highlights. pic.twitter.com/rKHGg28oxX
