Biedrins is a bit of a headcase. He had two solid seasons in 2008 and 2009 where he averaged a double-double, but ever since it’s like he forgot how to play the sport. The biggest problem with his game is free-throws. In the past three seasons, he is a pathetic 15 for his last 65 from the charity stripe. That is 23 percent. Homie would be better off blindfolded shooting underhanded Rick Barry granny-style. The Warriors also passed on two athletic bigs that would have thrived under Don Nelson: Josh Smith and Al Jefferson. Take a minute and think about Smith catching alley-oops from Baron Davis. *French Montana voice* Damn.
