THANK YOU Bob Myers for letting everyone know, “We have no intention of trading D’Angelo Russell.”
I feel like this organization has something hidden up it’s sleeve with this move. Both parties wanted each other in order for this to have even transpired. You lose KD but get back DLo? I’ll take that every time. He walked away from OKC for nothing.
Y’all once said “light years”. Still have a great chance of proving it true. I anticipate Steph will take a pay cut next time he can re-sign which will continue to extend the life of this group.
It’s crazy how everyone is so focused on trying to dismantle this team by throwing around all this “dynasty” talk but last time I checked, the Spurs had Duncan, Ginobli, Parker, and successfully built around them over 15-plus years in totality. Their greatness wasn’t only determined by the 5 titles, but the longevity. I think the warriors deserve the same respect.
The silenced haters don’t want to see this team gel, mesh, and succeed with D-Lo. So they think the front office will banish him away for WHOM exactly?
I don’t see any intelligent individual giving up Giannis, Kawhi, KD, LeBron, PG, or any franchise player for D’Angelo Russell. Steph IS the franchise player here. No need for another. Honestly, no one outside of the untouchable players on opposing teams would fit with the Warriors either. My personal fit would be for Jokic, but Denver isn’t sending Jokic to Golden State. Get real. D-Lo will become the 3rd Splash brother. Fifth technically, if you count KD & Boogie as Splash past.
Can’t wait to see it all come together for this team with the West being bolstered with talent this off-season. I didn’t mention the acquisition of Wille Cauley-Stein and the sleeper news of Kevon Looney being retained. He’s becoming a better player. We seen that in the finals. He may have developed into a double double guy that can defend the post well. I’m sure this roster will still make another signing or two, no matter how big or small.
In my view:
- Klay will become KD (more touches)
- D’Angelo will become Klay (offensively that can create off the dribble better)
- Steph gonna Steph like crazy
- Draymond will forever be the glue that continues to find ways to be better at holding everything together
DubNation has got to be sitting back laughing while the world expects their team to not only successfully integrate Russell, but also miss the playoffs entirely.
