Capsule history of the Golden State Warriors
Joyce Park stashed this in The Sporting Life
The Sports Guy has turned into his generation's pre-eminent historian of basketball. Let him break down for you how Warriors fans have been driven utterly mad by the vagaries of management in Oakland. Revel in the endless litany of poor judgment, bad luck, and sheer idiocy that have plagued the Warriors almost without end since 1975!
We could have had Larry Bird?!
We could have had Kobe Bryant or Steve Nash?!
And all the stories about Chris Webber ... What a shame.
This season alone we waived Jeremy Lin and gave up Monta Ellis for the hope that Andrew Bogut will be healthy and productive next year ... but the Grantland article indicates the Warriors' bad luck and questionable decision making goes back 37 years. Ouch.
Well, now I understand why being a Warriors fan is torture.
Just like being a San Francisco Giants fan. Just like being a San Jose Sharks fan. Urgh.
