Found August 11, 2013 on Bay Sports Report:
  Golden State Warriors power forward David Lee is probably the most unloved superstar in all of sports. All Lee has done throughout his career is put up big numbers. After his first all-star season in New York, the Knicks shipped him out so they could sign the great Amare Stoudamire (I bet they regret that one). Last season Lee was the Warriors most consistent player and he was also the Warriors first all-star since 1997. In Lee’s first playoff game he sadly suffered a complete tear of his right hip-flexor. Instead of waving the white flag, Lee miraculously made a Willis Reed-esque return to help the Warriors make a playoff run. Instead of being the beloved face of the franchise, Lee’s name was constantly in trade rumors and he is now a forgotten man on the Warriors roster. The 2013-2014 Warriors promise to be the most complete team to play in the bay area in the last couple of decades. Not only will the Warriors be armed with the splash brothers, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, who are the greatest shooting backcourt in NBA history but they have added all-world defender Andre Iguodola. Second year studs Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green promise to be super subs who can take control of the game when the starters are resting. Even with the superb talent on the Warriors roster, David Lee is probably the Warriors most consistent player. Last year, Lee led the NBA with 56 double-doubles and he was the go-to-guy during big stretches of games. As great as Curry and Thompson are at shooting the trey, all shooters go through funks, and when that happens Lee is the go to scorer in the post. Not only can Lee finish with both hands, he also worked on his mid-range jump shot which became automatic last year. Lee also showed that he can be a great passing big man which is important for a team that has great jump shooters. Most importantly Lee is no longer an atrocious defender as Mark Jackson has stressed improving Lee’s defense over the last two years. Every member of the Dub nation should be excited that the Warriors didn’t stupidly trade David Lee this off-season. He will be an integral part of the Warriors success this season.
