So, I woke up to find that Rasheed Wallace has verbally agreed to join the Celtics for a mid-level pay and he’ll be joining an aging team with a need to boost up their bench. Seems like every NBA player has been packing their bags and are heading for a different team. Is this because of the economic trend? A chance to play for a contender? I’m not sure if every player falls into either category, but a lot of transactions have been going on this summer. I believe that one huge reason, why so many players are being traded is because of next year’s cash crop. Free agency of 2010, seems to be one of the more intriguing and exciting off-season the NBA will have. Funny thing is, the 2009-2010 season hasn’t even begun and we haven’t even crowned a champion yet.
But with all that said, it doesn’t seem like the Warriors have made a splash into summer free agency. We haven’t lured anyone to come here, we haven’t made a franchise altering trade and we haven’t cleared enough cap space to sign a big time player for next year. I’m beginning to wonder, when do the Warriors want to start winning now and not in the next decade? Like the Clippers, who are forever in the shadows of the Lakers, the question remains the same. When do we want to win? As a fan of the Warriors, it’s easy to point fingers and play the blame game, but I’m tired of losing. I’m tired of losing games, players and my moral of how good this team can be.
So while everyone in the league is making changes their roster, either to bolster up or to wait for next year, what are the Warriors doing? I hope that they aren’t sitting around in the sun, waiting for something to happen. Let’s just have some “faith” we start moving some pieces together.
