I believe the term is "umpf" or "X factor" and not just because of that stupid program. I think i'm gonna use "etc" a lot in this post For Thurston/Cronk/Benji so i'll simply reduce it to "ThurstonE". I sort of agree with you to an extent. I agree that ThurstonE are the more talented players at this stage. But I genuinely think Maloney suits the Warriors style of play more then ThurstonE. That doesn't mean that ThurstonE won't be as good at the Warriors as Maloney is. I'm simply saying that the Warriors could be better without them. Although ThurstonE are extremely tanlented, their teams rely on them too much. I'm almost certain that if ThurstonE join the warriors we would improve a lot. But our style would turn to suit the playing style of ThurstonE. Which could turn bad if he gets injured as the team would forget how to play without him, instead of the multiple dimensions of attacks we have through Mateo, Johnson, Manu, hopefully Friend. I think all of our dimensions would change just to suit the style of ThurstonE. The Tigers and the Cowboys are proof of this since when Benji or Thurston gets injured they don't have a different way of attacking. The only reason the Storm/Auzzie, don't fail as much when ThurstonE gets injured is because they have people who can do nearly as fine a job. Thus raising my concerns over whether or not ThurstonE would really be a good thing for the club. Maloney might not the be the player with the most umpf but when he is with JohnsonE he doen't have to be. I guess what i'm trying to say is that Maloney adds a dimension to the warriors attacks and can let the others make something special for us without having to move a finger. Of course I might be wrong and ThurstonE makes us stronger without the repercussions. But depending on the cost i'd rather keep Maloney and Johnson together, Why fix what isn't broken as they say.
sounds like everyone's been internalizing some really complicated situations in their heads
