OK W's fans, now we're in trouble. The safe & easy choice is sitting in front of Mr. Cohan and St. Jean, and if you are a true Warriors fan, you know this could be trouble.
I can't help but think the Warriors will "foyle" the Thunderous third pick with a case of the "Carter for Jamison" heebee jeebee's.

So we worked out Dunleavy, Jamison shoved some prime rib down his throat and said...."it's a players team, we have a great workout facility and if your'e a nice guy like me, the pay day is huge down the road. Plus Chris Mills said he would customize your Escalade for free..". Something like that anyway.

Does Dunleavy stay in a W's hat for the remainder of the draft or are they going to deal him?

I have heard conflicting stories about Mullin taking / not taking a front office job because he thinks the Saint is an idiot. Does this influence the plan?

And what about the crazy story I heard mentioning that the Rockets might not take Ming? Draft Jay instead? That would really throw some confusion in Saint's bald brain..

I cant take the pressure anymore. If I am the Saint, I am telling Cohan to take the third pick and ..."trade it down, big man, trade it down!" :eek:

Your thoughts?

Trading down may not be too bad an idea, especially considering the depth of this draft. Anywhere down to about 12 will get you a quality player. Thing si, who to trade with, and what do we want in return?

my only thought was the mighty Clippers. I know they have two first rounders. Probably wont happen but if it did, I am all for it.

The Warriors could use some gym rat mentality (Dampier, I'm looking at you, Hughes and Jamison!)

Here's hoping thay things work out for once. Us Warriors fans could use something to be optimistic about besides the never ending lottery picks.

Warrior fan wish list;
1- New owner
2- Mullin on board
3- a RESPECTED coach
4- A hard working positive attitude from who ever we take at #3
5- An actual SNIFF of the Playoffs

According to several sources, Mullin is not taking the job because...its basically non-existent. Mullin would be an "advisor" of some sort. SO basically, he just hangs out with Saint and does nothing special. And everyone thinks Saint is an idiot anyways. Mullin, I'm sure does too.

I agree, Cohan has to go.

Actually, I'd like to keep Winters as the coach-the players respect him and work hard for him-something that was missing in previous coaches.

You're right that some of the players need to work harder. Jamison needs to work as hard as Jrich does. Jamison needs to prove that he's worth the money Saint spent on him.

The #3 pick is a very debatable pick. WHo to take? Dunleavy appears to be the answer to the Warrior's problems-from players to the front office all favor him. However, Richardson would also like Butler on board. With the #3 pick I would try and trade away. There is too many players in the draft who is worth #3. Trading down could get you a good player and soemthing extra also. Of course, getting Andre Miller is also a possibility but rumors of the Warriors and Cavs aren't too well known so that's probably never gonna happen.

What to do:
Draft Dunleavy-trade to Grizzlies for #4 pick and cash or 2nd rd draft pick or some player like Rodney Buford. Or..

Draft Butler or Gooden. Or..

Trade the #3 pick and whoever fits salary-wise for Andre Miller. Actually, the Cavs should sign Miller to the MAX contract, which would enable the Warriors to trade their budget eating players in Dampier, Fortson, Sura, and Mills.

Several sources have confirmned that the Warriors have already aquired the #16 pick. With that pick is supposed to be Frank Williams or Dan Dickau. IF ( a big if) the Warriors aquire Miller, they should go big with Haislap, Ely, or Stoudemire.

As for the #30 pick, if Casey Jacobson is available, grab him! If not, I'd go with Juan Dixon, Tayshaun Prince, Roger Mason, Smush Parker, Tito Maddox, Carlos Boozer, or Jamal Sampson (depending on who is available and what our first pick(s) were.)
