I can't blame the guy. Didn't even read the link, but if it is indeed true, more power to him.

We may as well just get rid of the News Forum.........all it does is create duplicate discussions and Warriors Basketball is about anything related to Warriors...........so it kind of makes sense that people dont bother checking there and just post anything of "news" in here.

For me, the news articles forum should be for commentaries/obsevations on the team/players...............things like trades and player issues should be discussed in here.

I was hoping that he would have somehow been included in the Al trade. He deserves a chance to play and show whether or not he can do it...and NY seems like it would be the place. Maybe Toronto?

only a matter of time before our IMPORTANT young players start to voice these same concerns.

There will be a small group of players that LOVE playing for Nelson because of the freedom and lack of accountability, the rest will HATE him and will desperately want out. It has happened before and it has now happened twice in this young season.

What line is Nellie going to use for Belli?....He thinks he is a really good player, I think he kinda blows.

I wish Marco could have gotten more of a chance, but there is no room for him on this squad. He is our JJ Reddick, doesnt have the tools to get the minutes, but he does have some potential. I would love to ship him somewhere for a 1st rounder...maybe him and Williams and re-coop atleast one pick.

I can see Brandan Wright being next... Hopefully I'm wrong.

So much for a coach keeping a team together. I can only imagine how practice is for the warriors, must be alot of tension.

Am thinking in the back of my mind B-Wright is probably thinking the same thing, I need to get the Fvck out of here. As a player you have to get an opportunity to show case your skill not just to your team but the rest of the league, you have to show value in-case free-agency comes along. On the team aspect the player shows value and can be used as bait for a decent trade.

I will take the position of defending Nelson on this one. Marco should have never been drafted if the Wariors did not have nor will have in their plans to utilize a low block player on offense. Marco would do well in this type of offensive scheme where he can set up on the perimeter and receive the ball once the low block player is double-teamed and can kick out the ball to Marco for the open three-point-shot. This is not the kind of offense that Nelson employs. Marco is not a slasher nor a guy who break down a defender off the dribble, both attributes of players who thrive in Don Nelson's system.

I don't think it will be Brandan Wright who's next just because he is too much of a team-first guy.

I bet the next person who wants out is Maggette after he comes off the bench a few games when Monta comes back or is forced to played extended minutes at PF.

If he is not needed then why extend the guys contract.
