That douche Rick Kamla was whining on Gametime about how it was a classless act by the fans and they had no right to boo. You mad bro?

This.

Warrior fans love their team. Oracle Arena is one of the loudest I've been to - much better scene than the Toyota Center aka "the morgue"

It's not that the fans don't have right to boo -- of course they do. They pay good money to support their teams. It's a matter of poor timing. You don't do it in the middle of Chris Mullin's jersey retirement ceremony. Definitely a classless act.

If Rockets fans pulled a move like that at Olajuwon's or Drexler's ceremony I'd truly be ashamed

Are these ceremonies done like before a game? Or after?

Or do they dedicate a day in which the team isn't playing for the ceremony? That's a packed house for a ceremony.

Simmons wrote a pretty interesting article on the comedy of errors that is the Warriors franchise.

http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/...-60-easy-steps

A good read for everyone, but something I think every pro-tanker should really take in.

55. The facts heading into this season: The Warriors missed the playoffs 29 times in 35 years the Warriors won four playoff series total in 34 years the Warriors haven't made the playoffs for two straight seasons since 1977 the Warriors haven't made the Conference Finals since 1976 the Warriors haven't had an All-Star since 1997 the Warriors have earned spots at 16 of the last 17 lotteries (impossible but true) the Warriors have made 22 top-14 picks since 1985 (including 11 in the top eight and five in the top three) and the Warriors made so many bad first-round picks and overpaid so many guys over the past 35 years that I don't even have time to type all their names again.

The Warriors are the definition of screwed up. The Clippers had McAdoo and have a solid team, New Jersey had Dr. J and Jason Kidd. The Cavs had Lebron and have Irving. Sacramento had that solid 2002 team and have a bright future. The Bucks have won a championship. The Raptors and Bobcats were recent expansions...

but the Warriors are extremely old (one of the original 6 if I'm not mistaken) and what do they have to show for any of it? Nothing. They stunk, they stink now, and they don't have much of a future.

but any other organization would have pulled themselves up by the bootstraps by now. It's a freaking bad organization. Bad organizations make bad draft picks, overpay free agents, and squander opportunities. This is not a lesson about the pitfalls of tanking. It's a lesson about bad management and bad ownership. I'm not gonna defend the booing during the celebration of an icon's legacy, like Chris Mullin, but fans ought to register their disgust every chance they get. Other than the power of the purse, it's an effective way for the higher-ups to get the message.

Exactly... or no, it would be more like if Olajuwon was having his jersey retired but had spent most of his career out of the playoffs and never out of the first round... and all of Houston was really sick of the franchise sucking for decades. You would still love you some Hakeem but you'd accept the opportunity to get after the owners.

Just read that. Anybody who has stuck with this team through all of this is a true fan.

The amount of talent that went through Golden State in the 90s was staggering. Seems like a case of management cutting off its nose to spite its face.

Reading Simmons's article, what is striking was the number of times they traded talented players on their team for draft picks and/or younger "upside" players, only to have them not pan out. Sometimes, it seems, letting your team grow together is not the worst idea.

In the 90s, if the Warriors could have just gotten out of their own way and kept their good players, they could have easily put together the following team:

Tim Hardaway
Latrell Sprewell
Mitch Richmond
Chris Mullin
Sarunas Marciulionis
Chris Webber
Joe Smith
Chris Gatling
Tyrone Hill

That roster has the making of a perennial contender, and all of those guys had good long careers. A lot of talented teams get torn apart by injuries, but the Warriors were torn apart by idiocy and short-sightedness.

Crazy that they have the first ever (3 total for the franchise) NBA championship (back when it was the BAA). And really haven't accomplished anything in the past 35 years (4 second round appearances with 2 first round exits).

Funny thing is, their franchise has still accomplished more than the Clippers even if you don't count those 3 championships (as Clippers didn't exist for 2 of them).
