It blew up in a hurry
17-2? How sad. To think we could have had Bradley Beale or Ben Simmons for Wiggins, Wiseman, Moody, Poole, 2 future 1st round picks and a George Foremen Grill. To think what could have been .....
Kinda OT: anyone remember what happened to the second round pick from this last draft that the Warriors got from the 76ers for the Alec Butks,GR3 trade?
KNBR article on lower scoring league-wide related to the rule changes initiated this season. And why it's not having much effect on the Dubs.
Good to see no [or less] hesitation / surveying the landscape by Wiggins in the last couple of games. Read and react. This ain't the frozen tundra.
This E1P reminded me of the airplane diagram with the holes in it posted during the 15 win season. It was pretty clear that B-ball IQ and shooting were the cockpit (Aka the keys to the Warriors success) and for some reason the Warriors kept looking for athletic projects that they could train up.
This year, they finally put more plating around the cockpit going all in on vets who know how to play basketball who may or may not have it physically: Dre, Bjelica, Porter. This year seems like it has already helped Poole and Wiggins progress with the timing and trust of their passing and rotations more than all of last year too.
It’s glorious how quick the payoff has been, and hopefully Lacob and Myers have taken note how good it feels when they provide Kerr with basketball players rather than athletes.
The E1P’s have really been showing that payoff in slow motion this year so maybe we should get Meyers a subscription?
Javale has been absolutely killing it with the Suns.
A key detail about the Steph/Poole high to low five: notice the alignment of their elbows. These guys are all about the fundamentals.
Thanks for these awesome breakdowns! The end of the half play is just nasty. If they have that on film for teams so that the Draymond 4 on 3 vs the Steph cut back has defenders taking extra time to process how will anyone stop this team?
Loved how OPJ really stood out as a good basketball player in those breakdowns too. Soooo glad the Warriors decided to go for basketball brains over athletic brawn this year!
Great wrap up, as per usual! I think all the strength of schedule talk is baloney especially this season. Wouldn’t it be cool to see the Eastern Conference just flip and teams like Boston fall to the bottom while up and comers like Charlotte start showing up in ECFs ( I really like how Charlotte is constructed)
At what point to we guarantee Payton’s deal and lock him through next year?
I’m having a really tough time seeing someone get bought out who would be more help than GP2.
That first play, Dame could come over and contest Poole's shot, but off-screen to the right is Stephen Curry. If Dame rotates off Steph, nobody else is close and he'll get a wide open three. Dame is caught between a rock and a hard place and chooses to stay in Steph's vicinity so Poole takes and makes the open three. Gravity at work.
Steph dray telepathy: Stephlepathy? We can call it Dray’s Stephlepathy? But it really is a two way thing
OPJ has just done a great job of quietly going about his business and helping the Warriors win without anybody (non-Apricot) actually noticing he is on the court. Nice to see him get some props.
LoLakers…Maybe they should fire their coach like the kings. I don’t think LeGm has the assets or picks to trade half the team like that 1 year in Cleveland
