I've been a Warriors fan since they traded Chris Webber. Can you imagine how that's like....

Nash said Christmas return is likely. Tomorrow isn't Christmas. I feel confident.

Barnes needs to take advantage of Ebanks. His shot hasn't been falling lately and he seems to have hit the rookie hump but he needs to attack the basket. Ebanks won't be able to stay in front of him. I know Dwight will be there patrolling the paint but if he is aggressive, he'll either get fouled or he can dump the ball off to an open Lee or Landry. Take the high percentage shots and put the jump shots back on the shelf for a while until he gets his mojo back.

Not too worried about Nash. I can't see him playing much, and he's a defensive liability when healthy. I doubt he is close to being in basketball shape yet.

Remember the good O'LOL Days when Baron use to postup Nash and absolutely abuse him from down on the block all the way into the free throw.

Me thinking something along the lines of what Hobbes says that he won't play a ton (25 minutes tops)

Curry should easily "GET HIS" tonight.

Nash starting tonight...looks like we'll be the first to see the full Lakers lineup for the first time this season.
