Happy New Year EVERYONE!

(Now, back to my regularly scheduled mimosa.)

I truly believe Curry, Thompson, and Green can win three more rings IF 1) Curry stops playing golf to dedicate winning every basketball game, 2) Thompson finds better weed or no weed and goes vegan like Chris Paul’s documentary “The Game Changers” to boost his mental energy and attitude and 3) Green should do the same, refocus and dedicate his energy to the team and less his ego. Bonus: Also If I were the governor I’d rehire Mark Jackson as head coach and give Kerr a year off on sabbatical. Kerr looks burnt out and Jackson did awesome grooming the young Splash brothers.

Why not look as far back to the 2020 draft. Imagine if we had the foresight to pick Haliburton instead of Wiseman, then in 2021 picked Alperen Sengun and Franz Wagner instead of Kuminga and Moody. Would any have fit well? Or would they not have had the play time to develop?

Happy new year everyone. May 2024 be kind to this aging OG core and sublime for its youth.

The only thing I would like to see this year from the Warriors is that same thing I ask of them every year: please run a meritocracy where the goal is to win each game.

Don’t play a rookie center with no idea how to play basketball. But also don’t give minutes to a guy who looks a whole lot like a paycheck player who got his next bag and has another year before needing to convince people to give him his next one.

Do play the rookie center who is clearly the best option at the 5 this year, and for heaven sakes play your most effective wing more than any other 2/3 not less than all the rest with a dnp immediately after he was by far your most effective player.

Cater to winning not whining and victories will soon follow.

Happy 2024!

I admit I am peeking in the door to the DNHQ before stepping in lately. Too many trade machines/fire sales makes my head hurt. That said, in a weird unlikely way I consider y’all family and want to thank every one of you for being such an enjoyable part of my Warriors basketball journey. I am holding on to my early assessment of this team, that we can compete with anyone, even though it looks bleak lately.

Happy safe New Years. Sending out positive thoughts/energy/vibes to all. Go Dubs.

The state of the team is an interpretive one this new year. Very little agreement of where the Warriors are actually at. Work in Progress is always a safe bet, but from the snippets we get from Kerr, they give me a different feeling. Too much is up in the air. With a possible return of Draymond close by, many seem to think will be the deciding difference. I would have thought Curry would be the deciding difference, alone, or paired with Klay. Whichever you think will be the answer, the Warriors will have the fight of their lives for this core to either survive and fight for another day just to get into the Play In. This can't be the outcome of the WIN NOW campaign. Bad planning? Something has not worked. Can the Warriors really have a soul searching moment to face this reality? We really have no idea for the first time in many years, where this road is leading to.

Been on the Trade Machine all evening youse guys and I just don’t really see a path to get an impact player unless we are willing to mortgage part of our future. Lauri and Pascal: itd take the Raptors or Jazz valuing one or both of Moody/Kuminga and I dont think they carry as much trade value to be the young centerpieces for someone else. So are you willing to surrender Podz and/or future picks? I wouldn’t because I don’t think any of those players are ideal fits on this club

So on to the secondary tier. This is where we could potentially fenagle a couple of decent role players on expiring contracts in exchange for CP3 but now I believe we are selling one of Kuminga or Moody for pennies on the dollar and guaranteeing Chris Paul to a rival on a buyout.

So unless we are sellers come trade deadline (and that holds alot more intrigue because we have quite a few pieces that we can trade for future flexibility) id rather just stand pat and plag out the season with who we have

To honor recent pessimism, may your favorite basketball team trade all your favorite players for conditional second round draft picks attached to injured players with expiring contracts in 2024!
