I forgot how quickly the sky falls during the season.
These young guys went from solid young prospects to duds in only one game! Look, there's not much to be excited about from last night's game. I understand that. It was disappointing. But the Warriors are a quality team that plays GREAT at home. They're deep, they're athletic, and more importantly they're the best shooting team in the league. Last night they flexed that muscle a little bit.
Optimism: we're a young team that's dependent on young players. No, we're not dependent on Gasol or Kaman or Nash anymore. We're dependent on Farmar, Henry, Nick Young, and to a lesser extent Williams, Hill, and Johnson. The first three have the ability to create for themselves and others, the rest don't. When they can't do it, we're screwed. When they can't match the energy from the opposing team (or exceed it), we lose.
Understanding that it's easy to see how a young team would get blown out on the road against a good opponent. I know things will be different when they play in Staples.
