Thoughts: Warriors 128 Grizzlies 110

  • Do the Warriors win this game without Devean George?  The Warriors had no choice but to sign Reggie Williams, and no choice but to release Raja Bell. George is their third biggest player, and essential to the Warriors survival for the rest of the season.   Letting him go would have sent a disastrous message to the locker-room and tanked the team’s morale.  You just don’t do that.   Continue reading

Thought Bubbles: Suns 133 Warriors 131

  • I was near courtside for this game, courtesy of GSoM.  Thanks guys!
  • The Warriors didn’t play bad, exactly, it just felt like they never got going.  They missed every important shot, and made the ones that didn’t count.
  • The D-leaguers outplayed the vets.  Monta Ellis, Stephen Curry and Corey Maggette didn’t quite have it in this game.  It looked like their feet were stuck in mud.  And I’m guessing that’s what it felt like to them, as well.         Continue reading

Thoughts on the New Orleans Game

Don Nelson: Can we just take a moment to admire what Don Nelson did in his management of Hunter and Tolliver’s minutes?  Rather than match up conventionally, Nellie used Tolliver at center to start the game, pulling Okafor out of the lane.  If you want a reason why Tolliver scored 30 points, its because Nellie made him a focus of the offense going at Okafor, not David West.

Thoughts on the Laker Game

Stephen Curry: Is going to become the best pick and roll guard in the NBA since Nash and Paul.  His work last night with Chris Hunter was incredible.  If Curry can find the seams against the best defense in the league, working with a D-leaguer, what can’t he do?

Crazy Nellie: Why Don Nelson is the Best Coach for the Warriors

Tim Kawakami has just published a piece in the Merc calling for the firing of Don Nelson.  I disagree essentially with every line of what he has written, and in particular with his conclusion.  I think it would be a huge mistake for the Warriors to fire Nellie.  Here is my rebuttal.

Some Random Thoughts

Anthony Morrow:  Before you get too excited about Morrow’s lights-out shooting in the Hornets game, take a look at what Stojakovich, Mo Pete and Marcus Thornton did against him.  The Warriors were fortunate that the Hornets gave Posey as many minutes as they did, so that he had a stiff to guard for 20 minutes.

How do you know that you are not an NBA defender?  When you get assigned the stiff, and the random D-league call-up gets assigned the tough cover.
