I think he means fine in terms of we wont be horribly butchered by other teams every night. We have an aite starting 5, it aint going to get us to the playoffs of course, well unless Monta just explodes into a star and even then I dont think we will but I think we will indeed be ok.
I'm feeling a lot of bitterness from other warrior fans tonight about Baron and damn people, wheres the love? The guy fought for this franchise when he was here and gave us great memories, I hate the way it all ended but no way should we hate him for it. Did this whole situation go down the right way? No, I think Baron should have told us truthfully whats up instead of the "the bay area knows where my hearts at" or whatever. Thats my only qualm about this whole thing.
Also Monta will do ok. I have no illusions that he'll be Baron in terms of distributing but he'll do his thing and the warriors will still be fun to watch, at least Ellis aint going to shoot as many 3's since he doesnt have the range. I can see us doing as well as the Kings did this year, scare some teams and have a good player grow into his own and end up near the middle or end of the lottery which isnt really so great especially since I want to grab a good young pg or forward.
