What’s up sports fans? I bet you’ve been wondering why I haven’t put anything in my blog about Golden State’s 2012 season. Your probably wondering why I haven’t put a lot of time in covering at least the first game of the season. I’ll tell you why. Maybe it’s because I feel like this season, even though it is short, is just like every season that preceded it. If by some great miracle that the Warriors get into the playoffs, they most likely will be ousted in the first round. I say by some great miracle because this is a shortened season, So that means their chances are greatly reduced. Now most of you out there who are reading this for the first time might be thinking, that I’m not a Warriors fan. On the contrary.
I’m an enormous fan! I met Charles Johnson or (C.J) when I was nine years old. He used to live right around the corner from me. I still see his sister Michelle everyday on my way to work. No I don’t dislike the Warriors, I love them. But I’m also a realist when it comes to competitive sports, especially the NBA. I’ve been watching it too long to know otherwise. The Warriors owners in the beginning of the 2011-2012 season, as short as it is, wanted us to feel the way we Warriors fans felt back in 2007. We wanted to BELIEVE! But unfortunately the season is turning to be just like most of the seasons we’ve had in the past. Some people will start coming up with just about every solution they think will solve the Warriors winning woes, and put them on the right track.
When it’s obvious that the only way Joe Lacob and Peter Guber are going to get a winning season out of this franchise is to do like all the other winning franchise owners do, spend a boat load of money and get more competitive players. When they do decide to do that, go after the players that know how to win games. Go after Dwight Howard, and when I say go after Dwight Howard go and get him!! Don’t come at him with some rinky dink deal, out bid all the other teams and go get him! Go after Joakim Noah. Go after Rajon Rondo. Go after the players that will win you games. Go after Kobe Bryant if you can. Go after Tim Duncan, Chris Paul, Manu Ginobli, Joe Johnson or Tony Parker. If you need go after Lebron James or even Dwayne Wade.
Whatever player you think will help you win games go after him, and get it done!! Because if you owners think you can stand in front of the crowd of fans, guarantee playoffs by setting up a contract with the fans simply because it brings good PR, and think that’s going to change psychological profile of this franchise, which is to loose, your living in new ownership nieve land. Hey the clippers went after Chris Paul and Chauncey Billips, pair them up with Blake Griffin and where are they now? A top the Pacific Division, sitting at No. 1. Are you listening Mr. Lacob, and Mr. Guber? So far the shortened season and the sea-saw win, loose schedule has shown the same bad formula for Golden State, no consistency for winning games.
It’s sad. I know that when the new owners took the helm, they had good intentions. But really if they mean what they say they will re-evaluate their strategy and put together a plan of action that will get better results. Because right now we’re looking at the same old thing. Opposing teams will come in to Oracle Arena and they’ll be thinking not if they’ll win, but how they’ll win. What do you think? Am I talking loud and saying nothing? Or am I speaking the truth?
