Very detailed scouting report of Nemanja Nedovic

2

By Jonathan Wasserman, who also works for nbadraft.net, has good international scouting sources. Here's an interesting quote- In 2012-13, Nedovic made 60 of 153 three-point attempts, good for 39 percent. He's a confident shooter and has improved over the last few years with regard to his range and accuracy.

2013 Offseason, go all in or stand pat till 2014?

The 2013 offseason poses some interesting questions for the Warriors. They are coming off a nice playoff run with a young core, who looks to be a consistent playoff contender for years to come....

Klay for Harden

33

Simmons: And then some. At what point is someone going to break the news to Warriors fans that they could have had James Harden for Klay Thompson before the season? Should we do it in stages? One at a time? How should we handle this? We might have to do an oral history called "The Last Few Days Before Oklahoma City Traded James Harden." I still can't believe that Washington and Golden State evaluated that situation by saying, "Hmmmmm … no thanks, we're gonna roll with Bradley Beal/Klay Thompson over adding a franchise guy." Sorry, I interrupted, go back to breaking down Houston's playoff chances, please.

Well this is a weird feeling: the Warriors have twice as many wins as losses, and it's mid-December. And the Warriors are doing it without the big man, Andrew Bogut, who was supposed to change the...

The GSoM Build a Championship Team Fantasy Game

Draymond Green on KNBR

1

A good listen. If I didn't already like him, I flat out love him. Listening to him talk about basketball and his outlook on how to play, it's not surprising he's a career winner. I don't think we've had a guy focused on the details like him in a while.

Why can't we run more sets like at 0:55? Pick and Roll, allow steph to read and decide if he's going to shoot the mid-range, hit the roll man or kick out depending on defense? In my opinion, the biggest reason we can't is using 2 bigs. Suns made a living by spreading floor with 4 perimeter players and 1 big. I personally think with Bogut comes back he's an ideal pick and roll player with Steph, but the David Lee conundrum continues. He can't space the way Diaw and Frye did for Suns. And considering neither he nor Steph are athletic enough to penetrate or slash a congested paint, we get stuck with lots of mid-rangers. While being a superior player, I really would like to see Lee moved for a true Stretch 4. I think it'd make our offense run better without losing on D or rebounding

Warriors Offensive Woes. Is it a function of shot selection, play calling or poor shooting?

The Golden State Warriors have played about 10% of the season so far, and while that's a small sample, it is an appropriate point to start noticing trends. In terms of results, I am fine with a...

10. Klay Thompson's defense. As a long-range gunner with barely a season of NBA experience, Thompson just seems like a guy who should be a poor defender. But the more I watch him, the more he looks like a really solid defender. He moves around well, with a good understanding of rotations and the general team concept. He's a willing worker with good balance; he can close out hard on shooters while keeping his feet steady enough to prevent a blow-by drive. Thompson has a chance to be a really, really good all-around player.

Golden State: Everyone loves Klay Thompson (including me), an old-school two-guard who defends well, shoots 3s and gets to the rim. If you're Golden State, would you rather pay Thompson a rookie-scale salary these next three seasons … or Harden four times as much? In a vacuum, you'd pick Thompson because Harden doesn't bring you any closer to a title these next three years. But let's say you were trying to make a splash and thought Harden's game, recognizable beard and Team USA pedigree would appeal to your beyond-tortured fan base? You might think about it … right?

The Harden Dilemma- http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/8486795/the-harden-dilemma I floated this idea before, but if OKC seriously isn't going to pay the tax or dump ibaka or perkins, would you sign and trade Klay Thompson (+ what'd be a one year expiring of Biedrins or Jefferson) for Harden? He's approximately 5 months older than Klay, and much more proven.

Looking good for Warriors playoff chances!

What is the next innovation in the NBA?

7
But is it the future of the league? That's up for debate. "We want to be as big as we can be — from guard to center," says Bob Myers, the Warriors' GM. "Most teams don't have LeBron James, and for those teams, the rule will always be that size is important." "Talent is always the most important thing," says Rod Thorn, formerly the GM of the Sixers, Nets, and Bulls. "But all things being equal, having size and length is always going to be a huge advantage." Are the Warriors again falling behind, with most teams looking for more athleticism and versatility, and us drafting and building traditionally?

Hunt Construction, Webcor score Warriors construction contract

Seems like a good Joint-Venture prospect. Hunt is very familiar with arenas. Webcor is local and very adept at urban building, especially in SF (and oakland). Turner, who lost out, is building SF Niners new stadium

https://twitter.com/JacksonMark13 I actually saw him getting off bart. In a full sweatsuit with an A's hat. Give him a quick "Go Dubs!" he turned smiled and gave a wave. I wanted to get a word with him, but you all know how the overpass is 15 minutes before a game.

Warriors’ camp primer: No Monta, not much news or tension, at least until the Halloween Curry/Bogut flood

2) It’s looking like Bogut will play at most 1 or 2 exhibition games (late-October) but maybe none at all, so it could come down to wire whether he’s ready to go Oct. 31 in Phoenix. Anypne else getting a little worried?

Our old friend, Dorell talking. He does have a point. Bynum's the better offensive player. Not sure he's in anyway the better two way player

Golden State Warriors SF Arena Could Cost $1 Billion

For what it's worth, I agree. I said it since day one. It will cost upwards of $800 million if they do it the way they want to.

8) Can't Wait ... to get a full season out of Steph Curry, who was cleared last week to resume full-court activities by the Warriors' doctors. His teammate, Andrew Bogut, is not quite as far along and the regular-season opener is still a goal, not a certainty. But Golden State could be a breakout team in the West this season if it could get, say, 140 games combined out of its guard/center duo.

Non-Warriors related, but since the Glove is a bay area native, perhaps we can let it slide? Payton is, in my opinion, one of most underrated players of his era. One thing I notice, is how much more physical defense was comparative to now.
