Double K’s Take: The Warriors off season sofar…


                                                                                                                If you have been watching ESPN like everyone else you know that the Golden State Warriors have not been very loud this offseason. They have made a couple of moves that I think will help the team but they haven’t really made any huge splashes!! Well I may be wrong about that the 1st move that the Warriors made after their 1st round exit from the playoffs was firing the 1st man to take the Warriors to the playoffs in back to back seasons in over 20 years!! Mark Jackson was a great coach and he really did nothing wrong, he was a great coach and most of the roster was devoted to him. I do believe that he will find a job elsewhere in the NBA!! After that the Warriors shocked the NBA world by hiring another in experienced Head Coach in former player and GM Steve Kerr. Kerr takes the job over the Knicks job and coaching for his mentor Phil Jackson. The roster he has inherited isn’t a bad one at all but they are still trying to add pieces to make it better so let’s get into that a little bit…


Warriors are in talks to trade for the Timberwolves PF Kevin Love – This has been a ongoing thing for the past couple of months. There have been reports that the holdup is that the Warriors are unwilling to part with SG Klay Thompson in the deal and Minnesota wants him badly. I personally think you keep Thompson of the table because the thought of having a starting lineup that consist of the “Splash Brothers” Curry & Thompson, Igodala, Love and Bogut in the front court. That is a starting 5 that can have NBA Western Conference Finals, if not NBA Finals aspirations. But we have yet to see this deal come to fruition so for now all it is, is a dream. Also the LeBron James situation has pulled Loves interest to two teams and the Cavaliers have more to offer the Wolves than the Warriors so it looks like we are going to have to sit back relax and watch the cards fall…


Warriors sign G Shaun Livingston and F Brandon Rush to contracts – These two guys make sense for what the Warriors are trying to do. Rush is a former Warrior who performed well when he was with the team and to his credit is a very good defensive forward. He can come in and give Igudala a rest and allow the team not to miss a beat on the defensive end. Livingston can provide a rest for Thompson from time to time and once again not lose a beat on the defensive side of the court. But both will be critical to the bench if the Warriors are going to contend in the Western Conference. These are the 1st two new pieces to Kerr’s Warriors, lets see what he can do with them…
