    Why do continue to bring up an old injury. He played so much basketball after the fact.. and still have years left to play

      Really Shaun Livingston and Andre iguodala is what the warriors fans should be worried about? Not the fact that Durant is gone and klay is out for a whole year? Not the fact that they have no bench depth whatsoever and curry can’t carry a team of nobodies to the playoffs? No the real problem is losing an old 6th man and a mediocre playmaker at best, what a tragedy.

        No one expects the Warriors to be in the Finals for 6th straight year... but of course no other team has ever gone to the Finals 6 straight years since the Celtics did it back when it didn't take very many wins to get to the Finals. (NO other team has come close to winning 60 pre-Finals playoffs games in a 5-year run). So we expect things to come to an end.


        That said, this is just a transition year. Players decline faster than managers do. The Warriors are well-managed. It was time to move on from Iggy and Livingston. And KD is a generational, irreplaceable player... but on the other hand, if KD had stayed it's not like they were going to have his services in 2019-20, and a lot of NBA folks think KD will never play at the same level again after returning from his injury. D'Angelo Russell healthy is obviously better than KD in rehab, so at least in the short term they're better off. Keep in mind that there aren't very many years left of peak-Steph. Sad to say, but even though the Warriors would've re-signed KD had he wanted to, re-signing KD and occupying all that salary for a guy who can't play for a year and may never be the same again would've been a terrible waste of precious time remaining in Steph's prime.


        There is every reason to think Bob Myers will still be in his prime when Steph and Klay decline, and there will be more players coming along.

          GSW days are really in question.. Even the 73 wins warriors will only be 4th in the west right now. Unless Klay becomes like KD, Green becomes like Siakam and SP stays great. But that is a dream.

              Shaun was an ok point guard but he was never a good defender like Andre.
              Both of them are getting old and becoming a reliability on crunch time.
              Warriors identity is defined by SKD CTG. As long as these three drafted warriors still playing with GSW, the Bay is ok.

                      Is simple real Stars don't like assholes, like Green, Westbrook, so they will leave, so you know, you love your bitch Green, suck his dick see how many championships you'll get dumbasses!

                        Those two were vital to the rings they won, they won't miss shaun that much but definitely iggy was always stepping up in the playoffs...

                              Iggy went on breakfast club talking too much hush business..

                                No, not concerned. Actually should be praising the moves. Neither Iggy or Livvy was giving them what they needed from "veterans". The GSW were going to have to get younger so better now than later. Next season is a rebuilding year so it was best to move on.

                                    As a Warriors fan we needed to get younger as Steph, Klay, and Draymond are getting older and have played A TON of minutes having gone to the Finals five straight times.

                                      Spurs signed Trey Leyles who can constantly drain three's, very quick and great defender

                                        The biggest thing tht most people are sleeping on... the GSW could D you up... they had a lot of LONG 6'7-6'9 wing defenders... Klay is hurt... Livingston gone, Iggy gone... Barnes was another... Durant was long... who are the wing defenders to lock down your 2guard or swing forward... who covers for Steph now?

                                                      If that guy thinks that the core of GS were the splash brothers and green, he forgets why they great! They were great because they had consistent 3 point shooters as starters and decent 3 point shooters coming off the bench to keep it flowing. The bench was deep and they gave some up for Durant. When he was out, the bench was not deep and Kerr actually had to coach. I knew he could not and the people who thought they he made the team found out that he could not.

                                                          No they were past there time and no longer fit. Livingston in particular. Both became liabilities without KD and Draymond not shooting well. Livingston would fit perfectly with the Lakers with high low guard to big with Ad Boogie Javale and Lebron.

If Dlow is kept, he’s a better replacement over Livingston, but I don’t think they’ve found a real replacement for iggy yet which will hurt

As long as Steph, Klay, and Dray are there with good surrounding pieces, they're still the same dynasty. The trade for Dlo and WCS signing PLUS their revitalized younger/better bench compared to last year, makes them contenders for the next few seasons

                                                                                          Unfortunately, the league is run by analytics and stats, and totally misses out on what a player truly brings to a team.
