It's really all Mullin's fault.

Why would you blame Mullin for this current fiasco?

While Mullin did hire Nelson and traded Richardson away for Wright, he, Mullin, was in a desperate situation without any ownership direction nor ownership support.

The current situation is an organizational problem where the team caved in to Nelson's demands for a huge contract extension after only coaching the team for one season. That, right there, is what set in motion the consolidation of power with Nelson (and subsequently led to Mullin being pushed out).

Randolph, a Mullin pick, should be much further along in his development; but, did not do so under the tutelage of Nelson.

While Wright has been injury-prone, he, too should be further along in his development. Does he have a go-to shot? Does he have a low-block game? Has he established himself as a guy who can change a game with his defense?

What I do like about his game is that he can run the floor and finish a fast break! If he can hit the defensive boards, make the good outlet pass and then run the floor, we may have something special with Wright. I am concerned, however, if Nelson plays him at center with four smaller players (this is more than a unwarranted fear; this is something that we all know is likely to happen).

I've done that to him before Beast, he gets it, but won't acknowledge his obsession with Mullin, so he will deliberately play the ignorant guy.

Did you have this opinion of Wright before the Warriors had traded Richardson for the pick which was used to draft Wright or did you come up with this after a few injury-plagued seasons?

Also, What is "drake?"

With Udoh's injury looking like it could be a few months, Wright is gonna have to step up and I think he could be primed for a breakout year. He was one of my favorite players when he was a rookie and still has the potential to be a game changer with his length and athleticism. Besides the fact that he is an average rebounder for a power forward, the biggest knock on Wright was that sometimes he didn't know where he was supposed to be on the floor. With such long time off, I'm sure Wright has been able to study and watch film.
