Thread: The Golden State Warriors hire Jerry West

  1. #1

    Default The Golden State Warriors hire Jerry West

    All the former threads about trading with Golden State can be deleted! Jerry West now works for Golden State. Does this mean he will trade Curry to Lakers along with anyone else LA wants? He gave Gasol to LA will he do it again? I bet LA has already called him!

    It doesnt. Since the Lakers need to get younger, West is in a position to cut them a deal like he did in Memphis (Gasol). This is what history tells us will happen because of past behavior. Besides, who else would the Lakers want off the GSW roster. West will help his former team again, just wait and see!

    Shouldn't the thread title be WArriors hire Jerry West as a consultant?

    And then if you want to say in your post that maybe this opens the door for a Courry to the lakers trade OK.

    But the way it is now I thought there was a published rumor of some sort that Curry was going to the lakers

    Is there anyone on this board who does not think Jerry West will set up his former team with a sweetheart deal again?

    Maybe a different title was in order. Something like Is Jerry West at it again?

    Do you still think the Pau Gasol trade was lopsided?

    How many championships have the Lakers won since the trade? Plus they went to another and lost. Yes, it was very lopsided.

    No, it was just two teams making a smart deal. The Lakers wanted to win NOW, the Grizzlies wanted to gain cap space, get young talent (Marc Gasol and two first round picks), and win LATER. So far I'd say it's definitely worked out for the Lakers and it's looking like it will work out for the Grizzlies as well.

    No actually I don't. One trade does not make a trend, and that trade only happened for money reasons not because West was trying to help the Lakers. It would be like the Knicks trading a nice player who may be over-payed to the Pacers because they are trying to clear some cap space, and that player ends up turning into an all-star because the Pacers situation is the perfect situation for that player to shine. If Gasol went to any other team he wouldn't be as big of a name as he is now, he is only considered to be as good as he is because he is in a good situation for him. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying Gasol isn't good, only that he is in a situation that brings out the best in him. Kind of like playing for JOB brought out the best in Murphy, Murphy isn't even 1/4th the player Gasol but that is irrelevant to the comparison.

    So the Grizzlies win two championships if they keep Pau Gasol?

    I am saying the Lakers DID win two and appeared in another one. Memphis has done nothing. 1 measley second round appearance - thats it.

    He retired when Wallace took over-
    At age 69, West retired as a Grizzlies general manager in 2007 and turned over managing duties to Chris Wallace

    You think they would have been in a better position if they had hung onto Pau Gasol? I don't understand how anyone can make that argument. That deal helped to free up cap space and got them young talent. Everyone blasts it as a terrible deal because it gave the Lakers a better team, but that is how good trades happen. If Pau hadn't been traded to the Lakers people would not have thrown as big of a **** fit. That trade was one of the few rare trades that helped both teams improve.

    Lol I had completely forgotten that West didn't even work for the Grizzlies anymore when the trade went down. That makes the original premise of this thread even funnier.
