Azu's done, Pietrus will be the same joker he was last time: the confused look when he steps outta bounds or travels, the attitude about coming off the bench.

If we were gonna resurrect a We Believer off the scrap pile and hope he regains his former form, the man himself, BDiddy, is sitting without a job.

Bdiddy's knees are all fucked and we are kind of set with Curry, Jack, and Jenkins.

Barnes just gonna have to step up. Played well tonight vs the Cavs. I think it's actually not that big of deal Rush got injured in a way cuz 1. it's Barnes job 100% instead of some SF controversy 2. Rush is incredibly overrated around warriorland and on other forums 3. more minutes for Barnes to further his development and see what kind of player he's gonna be.

How can a 6th man possibly be overrated?

Rush was a versatile, consistent, intense player who filled in all the gaps on the backup unit. Along with Jack and Landry, Rush was a starter-level player coming off our bench. I don't think anybody was claiming we should build the team around him, but he was an excellent role player. How can you say he's overrated, rocky?

(not to get personal, but he's a million times better than the latter half of your username, dude. :wink: If Belinelli was a 6 off the bench, Rush was an 8.)

Maybe next offseason will allow for longterm solidifyication of the roster, at least for the first seven/eight spots. With AB and RJ possibly traded or at least being expirers, that will allow Rush to be kept for reasonable money for a backup, like around what he makes now, add half a million at most. Jack could also be kept, though for about half a million less. Landry also can be kept.

Rush has a place longterm it looks, but next season he'll have to show it, where it would have been this season unfortunately for him.

Dont think barnes is ready yet, playing stiff with no flow, hopefully he breaks out of it. Rush going down we see the effect now. Might have to sign howard if barnes dont step it up

Barnesy will come around. He's playing within himself to a fault, ala Dunleavy Jr.

He may overuse it, but he does have a terrific pump fake and if he starts knocking down 3's (which he can), he's an absolute bulldog on the drive. We don't need Howard in the locker room rolling blunts for Bogut.

Last couple games Barnes has been best player on the floor.
If he can continue to improve, he will could be the key to making it to the post season.
