Is this Smartest Warriors Team Ever?
A lot has been said recently about how smart the rookie (Draymond) Green is. There you saw it. A lot of players don’t read that play and make that quick move to the hoop.
And that play, (Jarrett) Jack said, that was called by head coach Mark Jackson, who, remember, isn’t supposed to be an X’s-and-O’s man.
One reason the Warriors are playing so well is that they’re a smart team. There was a reason Jack and Green, non-starters, were in the game at the end. With David Lee, Thompson, (Stephen) Curry and Carl Landry, this might be the Warriors’ smartest team since Run TMC.
Even the front office is looking smart. Last season, it traded its most spectacular player, Monta Ellis, for a player to be suited up later.
