One of the biggest talking points for the Warriors this offseason was the future of David Lee. Lee had been a starter for the Warriors but lost his starting job when he got hurt. Since then, he had been riding the bench and even some games not even suit up. With $15 million owed to him next season, the Warriors knew they had to move him.
What Lee did this season was so professional. He didn’t complain about his demotion and played when he was called. He was a great mentor to the younger players and with his experience, he had a lot of wisdom to share. Even though he was here during the dark years, he knew that winning was more important than his personal gain. So he took the backseat this season. And he was vital to the Warriors’ championship run by playing some very important minutes.
