It's going to be very interesting to say the least. I think our biggest weaknesses were magnified by the Cavs and OKC - the turnovers, the lack of interior presence, and a consistent scorer off the bench. It didn't hurt them all season, but come playoff time, that bit them. These have to be addressed in the postseason.

I think they'll def. chase KD, but it's very hard to see him leaving OKC....in terms of replacing HB, I don't know if there's a big upgrade out there on the market. Depending on how much he is looking for, maybe Warriors will still keep him. Same with Ezeli as well - but I do think Dwight Howard actually would fit in perfectly with the team as constructed. It also seems to be the right kind of culture (and right kind of players around) that allows him to be successful. He's almost like a more athletic, younger, and more healthy version of Bogut to me. In the right role (which he would have here) I think it would work very well.

Also, probably need a more consistent scorer coming off the bench, unless Warriors think Ian Clark can fill that role next year.

Gotta practice on defense over and over and clean up turnovers, no more relying on 3s when we go cold either, gotta adjust when we go cold.

There was a spurt where Anderson absolutely needed to be taken out and Kerr kept him in. Awful.


But ever since the news of Noah wanted out with CHI, I was all for it. Batum wouldn't be bad.

I would be cool with Batum as well.

Dwight was on Inside the NBA with Chuck and Kenny and gave a pretty lengthy interview, it was pretty clear in that interview he was hoping for a new place with a winning culture around him.

I'm not a fan of Dwight. dude is mentally small and injury prone.

however, he's a far better rim protector than festus and won't get a rebound ripped out of his hands by Kevin Love. steph to Dwight alleys could be as beautiful as Nash to amare

I feel like the high has finally run out.

I'm not as sad or dejected as the 2013 SA G1 loss, or G7 to LAC in 2014. I actually bawled for those.
I didn't think I'd miss Bogut that much or my disdain for Barnes would reach monumental levels.

Curry + Klay **** the bed royally on the grandest stage of all. This might be good for us moving forward. I've been a viewer since the Dampier days and I feel something monumental as this should propel the the dubs to fix some VERY manageable issues.

I'm more nervous about off season moves. My dad immigrated here in 85' and after we won last years ship he told me "Please enjoy this moment, you may never see something like this for the rest of your life." :x :lol:

Batum would be great but he's most likely staying with Charlotte.

I'm down for Noah even though I hate his shooting form :x

This sucks but my worst lost so far was when the Niners went down to Ravens. This one is up there though with the 2003 Giants lost because it was a comeback for the opposing teams. It will take me a while to put it behind me. Just keep on think about "what ifs" over and over again.

I wouldn't mind keeping Barnes, but he's tripping if he's gonna get anything close to max from us after that horrible performance on the big stage.

Tough end to the season. Glad I never let the good times get me too high and this time didn't get me too low.
Just can't stand that LeBron guy; used to be a fan.

I agree, this loss sucks but it feels more like relief that the season's over, rather than a huge disappointment to me. I feel the other times we've lost in the playoffs recently have felt worse (like Clippers Game 7...and even Utah during the We Believe sesason). It feels like the Warriors ran into a team that simply wanted it more, and played better down the stretch. This is the kind of experience that will be positive for the Warriors' core over the next couple years.

It's very, very hard to win a championship, and I think this season is living proof of that. Can't take any of them for granted.

This is going to sting for a long time... Yes I know the window perhaps isn't closed... BUT YOU NEVER KNOW! We ain't getting KD, I'm certain of that. I don't know who you replace Barnes with so I think he's back. I want Noah, he would be perfect in this system and Ezeli is trash.

I'm extremely disappointed on how Curry played most of the finals, that's what really hurts
