Welllll, it's about that time gentlemen. Rules are simple: you are allowed 1 positive vote & 1 negative vote per hour, all players start at 10, when a player reaches 0 he is eliminated. Copy and paste the list from the previous post to keep a running tally; don't just leave who you're voting for.

We played this in the 07 summer when we had to change the JRich banner. It's just a boredom game, but hopefully it'll give us an idea of who this place respects and who it doesn't. I'll revise this original post with the order of players eliminated as is happens. To start the ball, I'm gonna give last season's MVP some love and dock the biggest disappointment.

+ DLee
- DWright

10 - Andris Biedrins
10 - Andrew Bogut
10 - Stephen Curry
10 - Mickell Gladness
10 - Richard Jefferson
10 - Charles Jenkins
11 - David Lee
10 - Dominic McGuire
10 - Nate Robinson
10 - Brandon Rush
10 - Klay Thompson
10 - Jeremy Tyler
9 - Dorrell Wright

To be clear, I'll be eligible to vote again in 1 hour.

********************

UPDATE: Elimination List

1. Andris Biedrins

Image

The picture of everything wrong with Golden State, Biedrins showed serious promise, was rewarded with a 6-year deal at $9 million a pop and has proceeded to pull a complete Rony Seikley: sticking out his tongue and holding his breath for a buy out so he can move back to Latvia and live like an absolute king. No Warrior has been as disliked the past 3 years.

2. Dorell Wright

Image

Maybe not the worst player on the board, but definitely the most disappointing last year, DWright is booted before nearly anyone else on the grounds of him dick-teasing is with a flash in the pan season.

3. Richard Jefferson

Image

Clockin in at 3 on the elimination board is Richard Jefferson (and his boys, lookin sweeter than a bag of jelly beans). In a penny-pinching Warriors era where even the likes of DLee get picked on for being rich, RJ is the absolute picture of an overpaid NBA has-been. Warriors fans will like what he brings off the bench, but at $9 million a pop, he's an easy target for victim #3.

4. Mickell Gladness

Image

No real shock here; the 4th string center and wafer-thin shot-blocker is chopped from the list. With AB squared manning the center platoon and Jeremy Tyler in the oven, most Warriors fans have no long-term regard for Gladness.

5. Charles Jenkins

Image

Tough duty backing up the star point guard who was runner up for the '09 Rookie of the Year. Jenkins showed end of season promise, but couldn't be trusted with step-in duty (leading to the additional purchase of Nate Robinson) and many fans still love to point out that the front office chose him over local favorite Jeremy Lin prior to the season.

6. Jeremy Tyler

Image

Getting down to the wire, Jeremy Tyler outlasted the productive Charles Jenkins, the starting Dorell Wright, and the SJax-avoidance himself, Richard Jefferson. With Tyler, clearly the best is yet to come but judging by the votes in this thread, Warriors fans already have apple pie hopes for the raw, athletic San Diego native.

7. Nate Robinson

Image

As it starts coming down to the wire, productive players are starting to bite the dust. After Steph Curry went down, Nate was handy to distract the fans for a year and always put 100% out on the floor. Whether he returns to play a role on a fully healthy Warriors team is going to come down to what sort of contract he's after. Warriors fans would love to see him back, but assuming he leaves, he'll still be a fan favorite in these parts for seasons to come.

David Lee (+)
Richard Jefferson (-) Because I think that he makes our SF position even more jammed, and none of them is a starting caliber player.
