“All the superstar players: They dropped out. I knew it was going to be a difficult road for them. But we are ahead of the standard no matter who puts that jersey on. We should at least be able to get to the medal rounds” – Pierce

“This team likes to play small. That leaves them vulnerable to that. To guys on the inside and getting beat up on the boards” – Elhassan

Moving on…

Share KD’s confidence in decision to go to Brooklyn? (Per the Wall Street Journal Magazine)

“He believes he doesn’t get enough recognition. He still believes he’s the best player on the planet. He wants to show people he can be that player again with the Nets but after coming off an Achilles injury,Β  I don’t know if that’s possible. I think he knew he wanted to go to Brooklyn probably in training camp last year” – Pierce

“I don’t know if he’s going to find what he’s looking for in Brooklyn. I do know it’s not going to be as easy as he probably thinks it is because of the all the newness” – Elhassan

Agree with KD’s view of Warriors offense? (Per the Wall Street Journal Magazine)

“The system worked. It wasn’t broken and the reason they only lost this year is because of the injuries. I don’t get what he’s searching for” – Pierce

“Happiness is hard to grasp for him” – Elhassan

Warriors have enough to stay afloat until Klay comes back?

“Initially, I would have said yes but I’m not so sure. A lot of it has to do with how Draymond Green performs this year. I think we’re going to really see what type of player Draymond is this year” – Pierce

“They’ll be fine offensively. The bigger problem is defensively. Draymond is going to have to cover up so much defense for everybody else” – Elhassan

“I guarantee they’ll be a better defensive team than offensive team, before Klay gets back” – Pierce

“This could potentially take money away from the schools. Make it fair for everyone!” – Nichols
