The Warriors are going to look dramatically different next season, which is a good thing since the start of the NBA Playoffs usually means that the Warriors are at home watching them.
Getting a defensive presence was vital, and now that the season is over, most everyone should be fine with the fact that Monta Ellis is gone and that Andrew Bogut is a Warrior. However, if you are still not happy with the trade, just be thankful that having Bogut on the team prevents the Warriors from throwing free agent dollars at someone like this in the summer.
When the Warriors did have money to spend, they got David Lee, the biggest free-agent acquisition in franchise history. Lee has not been a disappointment, but he hasn't been an overwhelming success, either. He has the tools to be a perennial All-Star and Andrew Bogut will be the piece to not just make the Lee better, but the whole team as well.
Bogut might even be an All-Star himself, if the Warriors drastically improve next year it will be because of his and Lee's cohesiveness.
Here are the reasons why he and Lee will make a great pair.
