Found August 21, 2013 on Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
One of the things to look at during a rebuild is opportunity created by injury.  I suspect this will be a steady pastime for Ainge during this season.  If you aren’t expecting this to be a contending year, then an injured player who may miss most or all of the season may not hurt your team nearly as much as one with Championship aspirations. It may not be too early to seek such a situation.  Golden State has only five guards (two deep at SG and one was signed as an undrafted free agent).  They also have Festus Ezeli who underwent surgery in June and is expected to be out 6-9 months.  If he isn’t available until March and has not played all that time, he isn’t likely to be a major contributor for the Warriors who fancy themselves a contender this year. Marshon Brooks straight up for Ezeli works under the Cap.  Ezeli and Draymond Green (who probably won’t see the court as he’s behind Igoudala and Harrison Barnes) for Jordan Crawford also works.  Either deal keeps the C’s under the Luxury Cap.  Wouldn’t you rather have a  big man for next year rather than a fifth SG this year?[Discuss on CG Forums!]

Video: Stephen Curry shows off his dunking skills

The Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry is a lethal 3-point shooter. Matter of fact, his long distance shot could be the most lethal of any NBA players that is in their respective starting five. So what is he doing hanging out above the rim? The Warriors posted this video on their Instagram account of Curry soaring like forward and stuffing the basket with a purpose. It won...

VIDEO: Stephen Curry practices his dunking

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has always been known as a three point shooter and pretty much nothing else. The team posted a video though of Curry practicing his dunks with the caption “Steph Curry: not just a 3-point shooter. Check out what he’s been working on this summer.” That may excite the fans but I think it’s a little misleading. Curry has been hosting...

Warriors' Front Office Approaches Job As 'Let's Try To Get Better'

The Golden State Warriors somewhat surprisingly acquired Andre Iguodala this offseason. With Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes on rookie contracts to play the wing, the move was somewhat of a surprise. "For us, we don’t really label our philosophy as much as just say, let’s try to get better, and if we see an opportunity that makes sense for us—financially, team-wise,...

Stephen Curry roasts James Harden on Footlocker remix

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is the latest NBA player to hop into the recording booth on Footlocker’s behalf. Curry takes the Houston Rockets James Harden to task on this remix/spoof of Harden’s original track which was obviously a joke within itself. The irony of Curry calling Harden’s notes flat as he croons off-key is worth the time spent on this one alone...

Myers: Decent Portion Of Players Paid Less Than In Past

Bob Myers was a player agent under the NBA's previous collective bargaining agreement and is a general manager with the Golden State Warriors under the new, more restrictive version.
