I don't know that he's ever been through a full practice with the team. Missed OTAs his rookie year with a leg injury then pulled his hamstring on the first day of camp. Then knee surgery. Was still rehabbing for last years OTAs then was shelved on July 25th to get back surgery which must have been the first day or two of camp.
Yeah, this. It'd be different if during all this time we were developing him or something... but it's all pretty much just been wasted time. Even though it's his 3rd year he still has virtually zero chemistry with the team.
Hopefully he can come out this year and surprise, but I know it's wishful thinking. If nothing else, he better have studied the hell out of the playbook while he was out.
Has Kugbila even made it through OTAs yet? I might be wrong, but I don't think he's ever even made it to training camp yet. I know last year there were a lot of comments about how out of shape he looked and would seem exhausted during simple drills.
I had some high hopes for the guy and his freakish long arms when we first drafted him, but if he can't even make it through OTAs, sheesh...
Before Steve Kerr came in and turned the Warriors into a damn juggernaut I thought Steph was very likely to come home as well.
Now, not so much... I think he'll stay there as long as they keep doing good together.
I didn't know much about the Mark Jackson situation at the time, but I thought firing him was a bad decision and that you could do a lot worse. But goddamn if Steve Kerr hasn't come in and gotten poo done as a rookie head coach.
Always liked ol' Kerr... from the Bulls and Spurs days, to insightful charismatic commentary, and his recycled NBA 2K lines. For my money I think he's a top 3 straight up 3PT shooter of all time - and probably the most underrated - so him mentoring Curry is a great pairing.
