DNHQ Vidcast: How Jordan Poole's playoff performance affects Warriors' timeline
Is Dub Nation being too dramatically critical of the young JP or is his recent stretch of poor play a sign of a doomed relationship between team and player?
Due to popular demand, here’s a Part II of the DNHQ Vidcast featuring Duby Dub Dubs, Patrick Murray, and myself. Listen as P-Murray gives you the real reason JP shouldn’t be back as a Warrior as the three of us grapple over this team’s roster construction.
Are we a few missed shots and turnovers away from another ring? Or are there fundamental roster concerns that will push the team into mediocrity of immediate changes aren’t made?
Check it out!
Late post to this thread, but I enjoyed this post season review. Kept it steady without too many suggestion of changes, just health and some versatility, which we could almost completely get from our current roster.
The discussion around JP has been interesting since this vid, with the exit interviews from Kerr & Drays pod all pointing to “the punch” as opposed to his lack of defence and getting scouted out, as Patrick points to. So an interesting narrative from the club, vice what was pointed out here.
Any historians here who can shed light on how the Spurs kept their dynasty for so long? My understanding is that they rarely went over the cap. Is it that they rarely went over the cap (six times in 14 years, only 3 times did they pay over 1 million, only one time they paid over 5 million). Is it that their core was very good, but not max-level good? Owners just not competitively overbidding players to the max?
Wonder if the Spurs could’ve kept it together for so long in today’s NBA market environment. Implications being: say Wemby is Duncan level good, what would be their route to sustaining excellence for decade+?
