With the 2012-13 preseason slate in the rear view, it's time to take stock of each Golden State Warrior by doling out report cards to the 15 players who made it through the team's final cuts.
When we handed out progress reports after the Las Vegas Summer League, more than half the team avoided evaluation. So for the Warriors' veterans and established young players—none of whom participated in Vegas—this'll be the first time we've had any sort of sample on which to judge them.
Of course, the usual caveats apply: The preseason isn't nearly as meaningful as the regular season, and the rotations coach Mark Jackson employed aren't necessarily the ones we'll see when the games actually matter.
But the Warriors did make a concerted effort to win as many preseason games as possible, a mindset that carried over from an undefeated performance in Vegas last July. With a purported culture change taking place and a desire to shake off the franchise's losing ways, the Dubs scrapped their way to a preseason record of 6-2.
The starters played more than usual, so while the preseason still isn't as telling as the one that starts on Halloween, this Warriors' exhibition schedule should provide a better basis on which to grade the Dubs than any in recent years.
Let's check out which Warriors earned high marks and which ones will be a little bummed to take their report cards home to Mom.
