Sucks that the Lakers won, but it is only pre season. Besides, I got to see Lonzo airball a wide open 3 so all is not lost
The Warriors could care less about the pre-season. Watch Friday or Saturday's game in San Jose for final tune up to get a more accurate view. They play the Lakers again for final pre-season game. I look more how the starters are shaping up and how the young guys are progressing.
My take: Vets are in mid season form. Curry, Klay, KD, Iguodala, Livingston all look good. I like the way Looney and Bell are playing and are two-headed monster. They've been starting Damien Jones, essentially to see if they want to pay the option. I wouldn't.
I say, keep Looney and Bell, and when they go small, you have Draymond, or even Jerebko, to fill spot. Wait for Boogie.
Cook seems to have more control of his game and the offense and Jacob Evans can fill McCaw spot, since he doesn't look like he's going to re-sign, which is stupid. The Warriors are thinking about only keeping 14 and see who shakes out in final cuts of preseason.
