The Golden State Warriors haven’t exactly been a contender recently. They’ve been stockpiling talent for years now, and they hoped to do more of the same on draft day.
When I say talent, I mean offensive talent. The Cubs have won a World Series more recently than this franchise has played defense.
But boy can they ball. Stephen Curry, Monta Ellis, and the Warriors can score with the best of them, and they throw so many alley-oops that it’s almost expected that they dunk on each possession.
The Bay Area must have been abuzz last night. The Warriors have so many rising stars and had a great chance to add a solid low post player they desperately needed.
So who did they draft?
He’s the highest player ever drafted from Baylor, and possibly the best player to play down in Waco since Bill Menefee’s coaching days.
Everyone Google that name at once.
Why don’t we examine Udoh a little closer, though. Yes, he had been skyrocketing on many draft boards, but is he perfect for Golden State?
