Relax, this is just for reminiscing.
On the Friggins matter, in this discussion there has been a lot of biology, pharmacy and philosophy. May I remind all of you that it is a matter of BASKETBALL? Think basketball, guys! AW has betrayed the team and the fans! Come on, open your eyes. Let’s think with Dray’s mind: we have Iguodala who accepts the bench after having been FMVP, and we have m*****ng Oubre who doesn’t; we have JTA that without a contract, risks his neck to save a ball, and we have m******ng Wiggins that isn’t willing to take a shot. I say we should trade him NOW.
Free agent Avery Bradley has agreed to a deal with the Golden State Warriors, sources tell me and @anthonyVslater.
A question for the contract experts: should Wiggins salary be halved because he won’t play home games, would that impact on salary cap? Would it allow us to get a very good FA?
Wow, you guys are very apologetic towards Wiggins behavior. Very kind and understanding of you. I am not. I see him as an extremely highly paid professional who refuses to comply to a very simple request for childish issues, thereby causing present and future damage to the organization that put faith on him and a seven zeroes sum in his pockets. Sorry guys, this is what I call betrayal. I’m not his fan anymore.
No to both. I have nothing against either and still wish both well. I was hoping Chriss would make it back to the Ws and the Smiley would develop and take another shot at the NBA, but neither guy did enough for me to consider him an HWFL.
No to Smiley as an NBA HWFL and sadly, no to Chriss. I really hoped we could bring Chriss back and he could earn that HWFL.
OK, so Wiggins aside for a moment, who else in the NBA isn't vaccinated? I want to know the highest profile opposing player who won't be allowed to play in Chase Center at this rate...
Rooting for both, but also no to both. The Smiley story will forever be a part of Dubs lore regardless, its story filed into the same section of the library as classics like "Unstoppable baby!" and Anthony Randolph... big men who didn't work out as planned and will probably have had a better career overseas.
Like others, I'm really curious why we didn't pick up Chriss... maybe they felt he had a redundant (albeit more refined) skillset with Wiseman? And the addition of Bjelly meant even fewer minutes for him? *shrug*
Just a side note on the Smiley game: fwiw, it was an exhibition game vs. a EuroLeague team
Do you think we could get Di'Angelo Russell for Wiggins and a top 3 protected 1st Round Pick?
Nobody wants to talk about those recent Smiley highlights? Sure, one game but not too shabby
Smiley is just a Honorary Santa Cruz Warriors for life , but i will always remember his free throw line dunk attempt. :P
Chriss just needed time, i still don’t understand why Warriors didn’t signed him.
On topic to both, I have no ill will for either and have a fondness for Chriss, and I wish we had signed him to that 15th spot. But no, not HWFL.
I honestly think one more year and smiley would have been decent, he has the tools to be a great small ball five and has shown his aggressiveness, just hasn't put it all together yet in the nba setting
No to both ... unless Chriss becomes available and the Warriors can pick him up again, then who knows?
Nope and Nope. Though I hope Smiley does well and wish Chriss the very best. If he'd been able to stick around, he might have been a contributor.
