Younger? You don't think Curry,Ellis, Azubuike, Randolph, Wright, Morrow, Biedrins, Watson are young enough?

They have some serious young talent. Look at those young players. There's talent there, and are one of the youngest teams in the league with an average age overall of 25yrs old. Their problem is developing those players, lack of patience, business acumen, shit coach and adding the wrong vets in the locker room, namely Maggette.

I didn't mean GSW isn't a young team.. I mean't GSW wouldn't give up Ellis a 4year pro for a up and coming sophomore in OJ Mayo.

Correct me if im wrong but Ellis has had his issues prior with GSW (suspended 30 games for a moped accident?)

I personally think GSW should have pulled the trigger on this.

i have a really hard time believing warriors or grizz management is this stupid


I'm not even that high on mayo but ellis is an overpaid and undersized alien. Why would the grizz even want him with that price tag and size at the 2 spot, specialy considering they have curry to develope and he is too small to play with ellis
And the grizz offer mayo? i cant believe the grizz offered or that the warriors shut it down

I think monta is playing better than mayo. Have the grizz already given up on thabust?

I would have been all over that if i were GSW. As much as i like Monta, that would be a good deal that would possibly allow them to move Biedrins next season if Thabeet works out.

Any team with Monta Ellis will lose. Memphis is lucky GS shot this deal down.

Ellis is one year older than Mayo, why is everyone emphasizing how much younger this move would make the Warriors?
