Well on one end I think the Klay Thompson hype is really overblown.  But that's probably because I have him on my fantasy team and he sucks.  Lol.

Gordon is probably a better player when healthy.  But I don't get this at all.  Curry is probably more of a SG than a PG.  Why get another star SG to pair with him?  Isn't that going to cause the same issue they had when Curry played with Ellis?  Ellis was holding Curry back.  Curry's one of the best shooters alive.  They don't need another shooting guard.  If anything, they should be focusing on trading Thompson for a quality SF or big man... or like... a crappy shooter who can pass a lot to Curry...  like Rajon Rondo.

Well, I guess they have high expectations for Harrison Barnes.

Also, between Bogut, Lee, and Ezeli I really see no need for a big man.

What aren't they getting out of Barnes now? He's playing really well.

I wish we had that kind of a big-man problem.  :-\

Any way we can get one of those guys without giving up a lot?

Jefferson is the guy they keep trying to add.  Didn't realize he had an $11 million player option next year though  :o
