Kurtenbach: Warriors are Bay Area’s best organization – their NBA draft showed why

When Warriors general manager Bob Myers said earlier this week that money wouldn’t be an issue for his team during the 2022 NBA draft, he wasn’t lying.

He proved it when the Warriors selected Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s long and sharp winger Patrick Baldwin Jr. with the 28th overall pick in the 2022 NBA draft.

It’s just another pick – another draft – where the Warriors backed up their high-profile organizational talk with big money.

We live in the richest metropolitan area in the United States. This is one of the richest places in the world.

Yet the Giants don’t spend like a team with a big market, the 49ers are obsessed with meeting the salary cap, and when it comes to spending, A’s are the biggest joke in all of pro sports, and the Earthquakes are also owned by John Fisher – follow suit.

(The Sharks play in a league with a ridiculously low salary cap)

The Warriors have become the only team that truly represents the Bay, not only because of their success on the court, but also because of their attitude to the front office.

Warriors are maximalists to the core. They spend a lot and earn even more. The property never seems satisfied. Dynasty? No, they want to be an empire.
