Garland dropped 51 today.  27 in the 4th Q.  Who does he remind people of?  He's only 6'1.

Warriors take a 3 point lead…then score 2 points in the final 4 min of regulation and miss their final 7 3 attempts to stay winless on the road.  What a mess that team is right now

He had 10 triples.  Why the swipe at little people?

Embiid with 59 points, 11 rebounds, 8 assists and 7 blocks in the Sixers' win over Utah.

Meh.

If he had 10 points, 10 rebs and 10 assists, he'd have had a triple-double, and that's what really matters!

I think its time to cut ties with Draymond. He looks really old out there.

Ahhh, the hindsight Rodgers strategy.

Their core is older and had a shorter offseason.    They are the champs until they lose a playoff series.   I will worry in February.

Not sure about that, but Green is being manhandled by opposing teams PF lately (Sabonis (twice), Mobley, Banchero)

Nothing hindsight here.  I said they should trade him the day the video came out.  You used to take his antics as "this is how he needs to play to be effective."  Now he's older and his antics aren't worth it.

They should just trade him at this point. Helped them get 4 titles. But the dude wants a max contract next offseason and he’s never been a max player. And now he’s not even close to the player he was at his best. Not worth it.

lawdog I did mention that I thought the Green/Poole incident would have a significant negative impact on Green and the team.  He lost a lot of credibility and can't play with the same edge.  I'm also guessing he's not getting away with as much physicality as he has in the past.  The bigger issue though is that Klay Thompson is not the same player at all.  Also, the hype their young players have gotten may be premature.  The fact that they won it last year is truly a testament to how great Steph is in the history of the sport.  Wiggins was outstanding as well, but we can never forget how good Curry is compared to other great players and his overall impact.  Everyone in the entire GSW organization owes Curry a debt of gratitude.

Same player as what?  Before his injury?  Cause last year he averaged 20/4/3 on 43/39/91 shooting splits.  His career averages are 19.5/3.5/2.3 on 46/42/85.  And that was after missing the first half of the season.  He put 38 on the Bucks, 37 on the Hawks, 36 on the Jazz, and 33 on the Lakers TWICE.  And was just as good in the playoffs.

Has he started 22/23 slow?  Absolutely.  But he didn't magically change as a player in the offseason. 

Their depth has been bad.  After their top 6 they have been pretty mediocre, and thats including Draymond who has not been good.  Thats the issue, not Klay Thompson who will still end up with his normal career numbers like he does every year.

Klay himself has admitted he's not the same player he was before his injuries.  Sure, his numbers last year may look like his entire career's numbers.  But he wasn't close to the second best player on a title team numbers like he was in his prime (their first title, or third best player when they had KD).

Not saying their skill sets are/were the same, but Green is kind of like Rodman. When he helps you win, you can put up with a lot. When he stops helping you win -- and when he might even be contributing to you losing -- time to say buh-bye.

It will be interesting to see if and when Kerr comes to that conclusion.

One thing for sure: He won't be getting within light years of a max deal from anyone. But we shouldn't start a Go Fund Me page for him; he's already rich and someone will still make him richer, if not max-rich.

He went to Michigan State, so a lot of his money is probably tied up in crypto

Yep, he'll get another 3 year $55-60MM deal from someone (maybe the Lakers?) and then, IMO, become one of the best NBA commentators in all of media.  Not sure if its the podcast route like JJ Reddick or a studio gig, but I truly think he's gonna be a better talking head than a player, and hes a borderline HOF player.

He's nowhere near the defender he used to be.  Now, many other a Warriors are having their problems but I don't see Klay really close to his all-star level.

That is some pretty amazing defense.

GSW should trade DG for Jimmy and win another championship. The Heat should laugh in their face if they tried.
