Scott Howard-Cooper wrote this article on the Warriors summer and how it puts them in a nice position to improve…
Even without the most recent additions that the Warriors made, I thought that they would be a much better team that would challenge for a playoff spot, but that’s really not the point.
A few months ago, many people were talking about how it wouldn’t be a very bad thing to lose Golden States draft pick this year because we would get it next year, but honestly, with the potential line-ups that they have, they could be challenging for a playoff spot, now with how strong the west will be this year, I believe that that will result in the pick landing somewhere between the 10th and the 15th. At that point in next years draft, the likelihood of adding the caliber of player that we could have got at 8 this year, are extremely-slim to none.
So, with all of that, I feel nothing but anger and disappointment in the tanking that Golden State was able to do to secure that spot in the draft. I feel there is something that can be done about it, and I hope the NBA will do something to discourage teams from tanking the way Golden State did.
