Tweet of the Night: Carl Landry

Very impressed with @ Management & Coach Jackson's commitment to winning. Really looking forward to the season!! #WarriorNation

Tweet of the Night belongs to Carl Landry, who showed plenty of excitement about his newest team – The Golden State Warriors.

The 28-year-old power forward signed with the dubs to give the team a legitimate scoring threat in the post off the bench. He averaged 12.5 points and 5.2 rebounds in 41 games for the New Orleans Hornets last season and has a career field goal percentage of 53.5 percent as well as a solid 77.7 percent from the free-throw line.

Warriors fans may finally have an exciting season to look forward to. After failing to land Tyson Chandler and DeAndre Jordan last offseason, the team settled – and probably overpaid – for Kwame Brown, who played well defensively but injured his pectoral muscle, forcing him to miss a majority of the season.  Since then, they have acquired Andrew Bogut by trading long-time Warriors star guard Monta Ellis in a major attempt to change the culture of the organization, signed veteran point guard Jarrett Jack, drafted Harrison Barnes – who has shown promise in summer league –  and has now picked up Landry – a veteran and reliable backup big that the team has missed for many past seasons.

Last season, coach Mark Jackson and the management promised a cultural change and a playoff berth that wasn’t meant to be. The Warriors may now be better equipped to fulfill that promise for the upcoming season, provided major injuries are avoided by a certain Aussie and a baby-faced assassin.
