GSoM Draft Chatter and a D12 Poll

The Golden State Warriors don't own a draft pick, but owner Joe Lacob is open to the possibility of acquiring one.

Warriors' dream 2012-13 season ends, 94-82.

It ultimately ran out of gas and ran into a ditch, but man, the 2012-13 Warriors season was a thrilling ride while it lasted — one that not even the wildest-eyed Warriors optimists saw coming.

Warriors 108, Rockets 78: Mmmmm, Cold Revenge.

Warriors get up off the mat after perhaps their worst loss of the year, turn in perhaps their best — and most unexpected —win.

Says Bob Myers to the Sporting News. A little bit of hedging once you get into the article, but overall it seems like the ankle rehab is progressing well, with no major red flags. Fingers crossed, knock on wood, etc...

It’s about being smart with my ankle. There’s no point in trying to get ready for October 1st, when another week could significantly help. I’m trying to get ready for camp, but my main goal is for the first game of the season to be 110 percent.

Andrew Bogut appears to be iffy for the start of training camp. How iffy he is for the season opener of course remains to be seen. Clearly, without a healthy Bogut in the fold, much of the optimism that has surrounded the team this offseason dissipates rather quickly. As of now, there really is no Plan B for center, unless you like the idea of starting (a) Biedrins, (b) the 30th pick in the draft, or (c) a defensively horrific pair of 6'-8" power forwards in Lee + Landry. Is it time to kick the tires on Birdman Andersen, at least as a stopgap?

Warriors Close to Signing Rush, Landry

Per Mark Bartelstein, via Steinmetz. One would think that Bartelstein, as the agent for both players, would be a fairly reliable source. "It is possible that the deals could be done by the end of the day." (Thanks to dong4ce for the original fanshot).

Q. How’s the rehab coming? A: It’s good and it’s a process I’ve gone through two summers in a row now, but this summer’s a little different knowing we have a set date to start training camp without a lockout. I can set up a program to take full advantage of the time I have this summer to get back and be ready. I’m right where I want to be.

Stephen Curry chats with the Charlotte Observer. Kind of a puff piece, but it does sound like he's in good spirits, excited about his impending fatherhood, healing up, honing his skills, and (for you muscle fetishists) even buffing up a bit. In case the offseason maneuvering has distracted you: the hopes and dreams of this franchise still hinge on the health of Curry's delicate ankles. Fairly phenomenal that even with the ankle issues, he was able to put up 18.8 pts on .605 ts% and 6.8 ast per 36 and a 4.0 RAPM (#17 among all NBA players). Fingers and toes crossed...

2012 NBA Draft Live Thread (Picks 1-6): Golden State Warriors Draft Day

Previewing Golden State Warriors draft day 2012. Open thread for picks 1 through 12.

SIMMONS: Why isn't MKG a sure thing? You know what you're getting — he's the most competitive guy in the draft, he's an incredible athlete, his teams win everywhere he goes, he's the prototypical über-athlete swing guy who can defend three positions, and he could absolutely be the second-best or third-best player on a title contender some day. I'm judging every lottery pick in this draft by one question: "Could you have played in that insanely athletic 2012 Finals I just watched?" We can't say that's where the NBA might be headed because it's already there — we just saw it. And for MKG, the answer is, "Yes, he would have absolutely fit into that Finals … and maybe even slowed down Durant or LeBron a little." I don't care that he can't shoot yet. He'll figure it out. I agree with you — Pippen is the right comparison here. But it's his competitiveness that really stands out for me. You stick someone on your team who cares that much and everything else will fall into place. Eventually. Naturally, he'll probably drop to fifth because this continues to be the dumbest professional sports league on the planet. FORD: If Kidd-Gilchrist falls to the Warriors at seven, I think they make the playoffs in 2013. SIMMONS: That's not fair. You just got the Warriors fans' hopes up — they're sitting there reading this piece and minding their own business, and out of nowhere, you set them up for yet another massive disappointment. The poor Warriors fans even get stomach-punched in hypothetical NBA drafts.

Simmons and Ford talk draft in Grantland. Highly entertaining stuff. I suspect MT2 is about right when he rates the chances of MKG falling to us at 5%. Still, when Jerry West talks with Kawakami and Steinmetz about how one of the rarest qualities in a player is true toughness ("dirtiness," laying it all on the line every night, etc.) he might as well have been holding up a photo of Michael Freaking Kidd Gilchrist. Make it happen, ye hoops Gods!

NBA Draft 2012: The Anagram Tea Leaves

A look at who the Golden State Warriors could draft with the 7th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.

SI Mock 3.0: Waiters to Ws, Sullinger slips to #17

Climbers: Beal to #2, Rivers to #8, Leonard to #9. It's getting hard to think of Leonard as a reach at #7 when he's cracking the top ten on so many mocks. Personally, I've gone from mildly intrigued by him to worried that Portland might scoop him up one spot before us...

Sullinger Red-Flagged for Back Issues

Sounds like a tough break for the kid. He's currently projected by DraftExpress as the Warriors' pick at #7. From the Warriors' perspective, might this mean they can go WFP (West's Favorite Player) at #7 — or trade the pick — and still have Sullinger available to them at #30 or 35? Stay tuned. Thanks to Klaymation for the original FanShot.

"I kind of take different intangibles from other people’s games," [Leonard] said. "The way Joakim...

"I kind of take different intangibles from other people’s games," [Leonard] said. "The way Joakim Noah plays with passion and lot of energy and some tenacity out there, I think can model my game around that a little bit. I think (I’m) drawing comparisons to Tyson Chandler—his ability to be a backstop to the defense, block shots and be a good on-the-ball defender is something I strive to do; as well as finishing around the rim, he’s pretty solid. I think a good goal for me in the future is to be as skilled as Pau Gasol in the post—footwork, back to the basket, being able to pull up and shoot a little bit. I kind of just take different pieces of people’s games and the way they play and just try to model myself after that."

Meyers Leonard appears to have far more sensible role models than Andre "Durant" Drummond. Is this, combined with his excellent length (7'-1.25" in shoes), impressive athleticism (second strongest dude among all players at the combine), skills, youth, and solid sophomore year numbers enough to tempt the Ws at #7? I must say, I'd be tempted...

The 76ers may be trying to trade up in the draft. They met with center Andre Drummond at the combine, even though he'll be long gone by #15.

Alex Kennedy tweet. Hm. If Drummond slips to #7, one wonders if an Iguodala deal could be struck.

Bwahaaaahaaaa!

Bwahaaaahaaaa!

NBA Draft Lottery 2012: 275 Reasons to Be Worried (and 725 to Be Enthused)

For the rest of the season, I'm rooting for Klay Thompson, Jeremy Tyler, Nate the Great, and Dorell Wright to scrap out tough wins. And I'm rooting for Detroit, New Jersey, and Toronto to keep losing. How great would it be if the Warriors, who are tanking more blatantly and shamelessly than any team in recent memory, still got shut out of a top-seven pick? Actually, I can't decide if I'd rather have that happen or watch the team draft Perry Jones III, only to see him turn into Patrick O'Bryant II.

Jay Caspian Kang lets the Warriors have it in Grantland's latest take on "Tankonia." Personally, I think Kang's ranting is pretty misguided. If he wants to lash out at the system, that's cool, but I don't see the point in berating a team for simply being smart. He also seems unclear on the concept that a 19.5% shot at Davis or MKG (as the #5 seed) is tangibly better than a 3.7% shot (as the #9 seed). Thanks to BrodieLow for the original FanShot.
