I'd expect there's some scares for Wiggins and people saying he was overpaid last time.

$27M a year is a good amount and people won't complain.

Wiggins balled out in finals, tagged Tatum and was a starting all star. He's done enough.

I assume the idea is to keep wiseman kuminga moody(?)

Looks a great young core for the champions with Wiggins and Poole

Poole is 123m guaranteed plus some apparently tough incentives, and there is a fair bit of potential being paid for there...I think he's showed he is a worker. Look at the sweet little Curry-esque floater he's added in the off season. Now for some Curry-esque growth on D.

I think Wiggs just knows he's in a custom made role for him, so hasn't tried to extract every dollar.

Wiggins said 100+ mlllion bucks and a fun team is good enough.

Good call. He got max last contract too.. only 27 iirc. Looks like another good decade to be a warriors fan.

15-46 free throws. Don't see that often.

Sucks to see Steph playing at MVP level and getting little support.

Such a hard team for young guys to develop in...not sure this dual timeline approach has legs.

that's the concern. Steph is playing well and we are losing to scrub teams.

Where are we all on Wiseman? Still just raw offensive potential combined with zero defensive awareness.

I think JaVale is pretty much his ceiling...but surely we can't afford to wait for him to get there.

Does bringing in Dwight Howard give you an improvement on Wiseman’s minutes and buy Wiseman some time… Dwight can still rebound, block shots and finish at the rim and play 15 minutes a night, will foul as much as Wiseman though, but is a short term upgrade if he fit into the culture…

He or Whiteside would do a hell of a lot more than Iggy. Our locker room has three HOF'ers with 4 rings each. We don't need a baby sitter.

I'd be more inclined to trade Wiseman while he still has new car smell.

Great win vs the Cavs

Curry just superb, better defence, some tough calls, early in the season but currently looking more like the play in season than the championship season…. Pretty much Steph save us.

Wiggins and Dray were good and Looney D and rebounding was fantastic, what a reliable player he has become, deserves more $$$ but the current NBA doesn’t work that way.
Starters aren’t the issue except Klays form.

Donte coming back is important, helped JP get going, but Lamb in the rotation before Moody and Wiseman and trusted more than Kuminga is a worry, hit some big shots too so Lamb should stay until pushed out.
Surprised Moody isn’t playing, has been the most solid of the 3, JK did a few good things but a few loose mistakes…. This is the duel timeline challenge.

Interesting to see where Klay is at by the end of the season, even more so when his contract is up, would he come off the bench for $10m a year? It feels like he is heading toward the cross road aging stars run into, age gracefully and come off the bench and contribute or maintain you are a starter and keep getting traded. He’s a humble guy and fingers crossed he can get back to old Klay again but his return has been great, those injuries were cruel and the NBA is about egos, Klay Thompson 2024 6th man of the year?

Can't argue with much of that...I'd swap Klay and Poole, but meh...it's Steph and daylight second.

Not ideal for who? It's good for dubs, and only potential avenue for Wiseman to become an NBA player...

La Melo running the second unit...imagine...

Anyway, quietly worked back to .500. Wiggins be ballin.

First quarter was as good as we've played all year. Beautiful.

Klay really starting to find his touch again.

I'm not crying you are

Up to 6th in the WC and starting to play a sustainable brand of b'ball.

Only 3 games off #1 which lessens the need to do anything drastic before the deadline...I'd guess we hold the line and maybe wait for buy outs...if we do anything at all.
