Analysis:
The midseason eight player trade with the Indiana Pacers brought Al Harrington, Stephen Jackson, Sarunas Jasikevicuis and Josh Powell to Golden State. The trade helped the small ball style of the Warriors defeat the No. 1 seeded Mavericks in the first round of the Western Conference Playoffs. Golden State’s win over Dallas goes down in the record books as one of the greatest playoff upsets of all time. Baron Davis led the pack with a phenomenal playoff performance averaging 25.3 points per game, up 5.2 points from his regular-season average. The good times ended when the Warriors lost to the Jazz in the Conference Semi Finals 4-1.

From The Media:
"Nelson said: ‘We definitely need some more pieces. We know where our liabilities lie, certainly in rebounding and in size. Those two areas we have to address. We're not complete.’ The Warriors would love to add a power forward such as Minnesota's Kevin Garnett, but to do so, they'd have to dangle multiple members of their core group of players — guys such as guard Jason Richardson and youngsters Monta Ellis and Andris Biedrins.”
