Larry Riley – Credit where it’s due.

Diamond Leung has a good article up, recognizing the contributions of Larry Riley. With Joe Lacob’s front-office cronies tripping over themselves to seize credit for the championship, it is worth recalling that Larry Riley was once the Warriors GM. And while serving in that role, he:

  1. drafted Steph
  2. acquired David Lee
  3. hired Mark Jackson
  4. drafted Klay
  5. traded Monta for Bogut

I’d say he set the table and prepared the feast.
