    Not the whole game... that's a long time for a 3-pt contest

    But i'll give the warriors a chance because they move the ball and play a good brand.. I'll tune in casually with a pretty short leash.. I've always gotten fed up pretty quick

    But I always liked oubre's style and talent

    lol oubre's good but he's a bit off black hole on offense so it's not a seamless fit. again you show you dont know what you're talking about when you say you think golden state's ball movement will mesh seamlessly with oubre

    this is going to bite you OP.

    as a suns fan, oubre suffers from tunnel vision. yes, he has games where he's electric and puts up 25. those games are followed by 4 horrible shooting games bc he chucks even when they're not going in. he's not known for passing eithier, kerr will really have to drill it into his head to pass to the open man bc he loves to shoot the ball even when it's a contested shot and his teammate is open in the corner. absolute bonehead plays.

    he's got 1.5apg as a ball handler, it's a bit shocking really. definitely the best option out there for the warriors with the tpe since he's young and can improve and they needed volume scoring badly. not a bad defender either and will shoot better from 3 imo.

    Supposedly the warriors other target with the tpe was redick. he fits their system really well but he's old with no upside and would get exploited hard by playoff offenses

    The warriors don't need him to dribble and pass.. he's actually a highly-assisted player with solid catch-and-shoot ability - so his game doesn't inherently hinder ball movement and the warriors won't put him in bad iso situations unnecessarily like phoenix probably did - oubre won't be iso'ing with his head down except in bailout situations where they need him to.

    And not all black holes are equal... Wiggins is the guy you should worry about because his handle is less optimal so it's harder for teammates to move around him... whereas Oubre's handle is pure guard smooth at 6'7" and he's getting everywhere with 1 or 2 dribbles... It's completely optimal so teammates don't have to wait or hesitate - it would feel more natural playing with him than when wiggins handles the rock.

    A guy like Oubre in the right system and lookout - another pippen? Perhaps with better scoring and less passing?. That's what a good system can do... It might be night and day... I like that draymond will be playmaking and feeding him for threes and slashes.. and Oubre's presence reduces wiggins ball-handling duties.. everything shifts a spot towards optimal

    Can curry even rely on him to carry the dubs to the playoffs

    I agree that Oubre will have to continue his growth... But the historical growth looks solid and I like the pro formas (projections)

    This could be a breakout year alongside veteran teammates and a more optimal system.. I think draymond's health is key to the season because we want him with the playmaking duties more than wiggins or Oubre

    But Oubre has a legit handle.. so don't be surprised if his playmaking takes a step forward this year alongside curry (a goat closer of possessions)
