The unofficial explanation:
I'm sorry, I was drunk and I thought Bryan said he would trade Bosh for belineli like we've talked last winter ...

As for the trade on GStates part, honestly what the fuck was Riley thinking?

I know everyone is big on Marco Belinelli but the guy doesn't play defense. At least George can bring some toughness. Don't get me wrong I still think the Raptors won this trade but it is not a steal like everyone is making. So the Warriors GM is not completely lost when he said this. I also heard Golden State was disappointed with his development thus far.

Like I said before, BC must have some compromising pictures of him but he can't confess that obviously.

This is a team that is known to not know how to developpe young talent. I could care less what GSW think. With the young talent they have they should have been better last season but they are a mess.

Marco at times was GS's best perimeter defender, and George cannot defend shit he was completely useless, you just traded a better younger and developing player, for an old lesser skilled "basically useless" player. Also it's not like were taking on more money the contracts are the exact same.. I know we added cash but we were willing to spend, so it's a complete steal, Remember Golden state was gonna get Amare for Bellie.
