3×3: Warriors Draft Busts and Disappointments

Biggest draft bust in Warriors history? Jesse Taylor: The biggest? Just one? That’s like asking me to pick my most annoying family member. Or the most exasperating CEO of a Silicon Valley start-up.

By: Jack Detsch   What was the Warriors’ biggest hiccup last season?   Losing Andrew Bogut to a busted ribcage? No. An off-year from Harrison Barnes? Think again. Mark Jackson’s iso-ball offense? Not quite.   Stephen Curry hitting the bench? Exactly.
