Let's look at who was available and how other dynasties did.
The Warriors draft picks are not the problem. Steve Kerr is the problem. Kuminga averaged the most pts per 36 min than any other rookie his first season. He averaged over 20pts per 36 min the last 3 months of this season while shooting nearly 60% FG and over 40% from 3. He also earned accolades around the league for guarding and often shutting down the other teams best players. He is one of the more athletically gifted forwards I've seen, and there is a reason other teams want him so badly. Wiseman averaged around 18 and 12 per 36 min since joining the Pistions. Both players have enough raw talent to become all stars in a few years. The fact that Kerr couldn't find a way for these guys to contribute is mind boggling. As we saw in the playoffs with Kuminga, he didn't even want to try. He decided he'd rather lose his way than even give Kuminga a chance. I love Kerr to death. But this was extremely disappointing.

trump needs quit kissing hitler erdogan's butt...oops, sorry, wrong thread....but, yeah, i agree with sleepy, that was one hell of a trade that got us andre and got rid of those two stiffs...hi, guys...bubble gum bball is on...we just averted a war between greeks and turks where i am at...for the time being, anyway....hope everyone made it through virus ok...stay safe...
More interesting to me is the failure to keep promising young talent who later proved valuable (specifically Chris Boucher and Kendrick Nunn)
I don’t know but I sure wish they drafted BOL BOL right now
This looks like an incredibly interesting exercise. Some people say that we can't draft without Jerry West (who is fantastic), so this is going to be particularly interesting. Myers has demonstrated an ability to navigate the cap + secure assets + identify undervalued free agents but he hasn't done the same when it comes to scouting college draft picks. That's something I would love to learn more about.
This is super intriguing. I especially can't wait for the Looney evaluation as he was the black sheep that was actually able to impact the outcome of the Dubs championship runs.
this is shaping up to be awesome. Very curious about the draft quality measurement
Ooh, can’t wait for this.
One caveat worth noting: three of the Warriors’ six first-rounders in this era were shipped off in the epic deal that got them the cap space to sign Iguodala in exchange for the theretofore totally untradeable contracts of Biedrins and Brandon Rush. I kinda feel like that needs to be factored into any grade we give them.
EPIC SERIES ALERT
