PBT Extra: Talking trade, Warriors with CSNBayArea’s Monte Poole

Jan 15, 2014, 6:58 PM EDT

The Golden State Warriors made a trade Wednesday to get Jordan Crawford out of Boston, upgrading their depth behind Stephen Curry — the kind of trade contenders make.

On today’s PBT Extra myself and Monte Poole, the Warriors insider for discuss that trade and what it means for Golden State — he thinks this sets up another deal or two as the Warriors try to add depth for the second half of the season and the playoffs.

We also talk about what Andre Iguodala has meant to the Warriors this season and how between now and the All-Star break is when you could see the Warriors make a push farther up the standings.

    Funniest thing I’ve read about the current injury filled season: (From the Guardian)

    Dear family,

    I apologize that it’s been so long since last you heard from me, but this NBA season is taking its toll on all of us. It seems every day the casualties mount and it becomes harder and harder just not to lose ground. Morale is low, and rations are scare. Just a fortnight ago circumstances forced us to cook and eat our beloved mascot Pierre the Pelican. It gave us no joy, our hearts were heavy but at least our stomachs were full.

    Sadly we have just lost Ryan Anderson for good, brought down by a herniated disc, a fine man who deserved a better fate than being taken out by the Northerner Gerald Wallace. Jrue Holiday is recovering from a leg injury and doctors have no idea whether he will back to join his brothers, his fate is in the merciful hands of the Basketball Gods.

    As we await news of the upcoming draft which would replenish our ranks, Anthony Davis, whom the medics patched up and cruelly sent immediately back to the front, has been uncharacteristically melancholy. “I remember when first drafted, I was excited to prove my manhood and fight for this city. I did not expect to see so much carnage, to see so many of my brethren cruelly cut down in their primes.” I can only tell him that at least our foes in the East are having a rougher go than us, but I was not convincing at all. This NBA season has been an exercise in learning that the world is a bloody, cruel unpredictable place and I so I wish I were home.

    Or coaching the Indiana Pacers, they seem to be doing okay.

    C’mon Kurt, I know you were attempting to make a funny, but saying this guy looks better than @heykayadams is ridiculous!
