Default Great article on the Warriors....aka how to keep on effing up in the NBA

21. We can't just casually skip over this Webber thing. He had just won Rookie of the Year and unleashed a free-flowing, up-and-down, uber-athletic, cerebral offensive game that had absolutely nothing in common with anything that had ever happened in the NBA before. If 1994 Me wrote my annual "Who Has the Highest Trade Value" column that summer, Shaq would have gone first, Robinson and Hakeem would have gone second and third, and Webber would have gone fourth yes, ahead of Karl Malone, Scottie Pippen, Shawn Kemp, Grant Hill and everyone else. When someone that talented blows through your city and disappears just as fast, you don't just salvage that, and you certainly don't recover from it. The Warriors were never, ever the same.


This is why I hate Chris Webber

The Warriors had a good team a few years ago and Don Nelson really screwed it up. And guys don't want to go there.

That said, it takes one guy to change the entire culture of a team.

The Clippers got Blake Griffin. Now they have built a nice team around him.

You never know. Maybe Bogut gets healthy and the Warriors turn it around. It can be done.

I read it all haha! It was actually an amazing article. Now I will have the insight to know that whoever picks after Golden State this year (if they end up having a pick), will have a great player

your anger is misplaced.

Nelly is the guy you want to be mad at. He was the one who alienated Webb. Not that Webber was in the right, but at the time, the NBA was loaded with centers, and Webber is, and always was, a power forward who liked to play up high rather than down low
