08:10 AM ET 07.31 | The numbers coming out of Golden State aren't adding up in Dominic McGuire's favor. With the signing of Carl Landry and the expected re-signing of Brandon Rush, the Warriors have 15 guys under contract. Perhaps more important, they'll have little-to-no money left under the $70.3M luxury tax threshold. Does that spell the end of [McGuire's] tenure with the Warriors? If so, many Golden State fans who came to love his defensive intensity and versatility will not be happy. McGuire rose from last-ditch free agent signing a year ago to beloved glue guy who many feel is a must-keep. ... But the Warriors' moves this offseason indicates they aren't as high on McGuire as many of their fans.

Well, the Warriors are almost guaranteed to make the wrong move. If they hold true to form, McGuire will be let go, and go on to become a Hall of Famer somewhere else.

Sigh, the Warriors haven't been relevant since RunTMC.

You call a team who barely if ever made it out of the first round relevant. I guess you would if you can except a player like Chris Mullen (from my home, Brooklyn) being elected to the HOF ahead of some many others whom have better numbers and better careers than Mullen......5x all star only and so many non descript campaigns in warriorland. The Mullen election IMO is a complete joke and totally unwarranted if you ask me. I hate to say that about a cat from Brooklyn, the same as I, but its simply the truth.

Smart money says you aren't old enough to have witnessed RUN TMC. Give us an example. Tell about one of the "many others" you think put up better numbers than Mullin.

I've watched Russ, Wilt, Frazier, Gilmore, love, Robertson, West, Hondo, Jo Jo just to name a few so your point is mute, and yes as I said "IMO" mullin is underserving before a lotta cats. I'm not even going to get in stats with you if all it takes is Chris's to make your argument!

Well '74 was Robertson's last season. That would make you conservatively in your mid sixties. You'll forgive us if we don't believe you. That's the reason you have your profile hidden. In addition to your other deficiencies, you're also a liar.
