The Warriors have so many problems I don't even know where to begin, which is why I voted No. I don't know if they should work on their FTs, their bball IQ, or what...there were just too many factors.

Someone will have a big night for the guesses are on Hill or Battie. Dwight's bound to have a big one as is, so that won't be a surprise.

We better play the young guns in this game, whatever we do...I want to see Monta get even more playing time!

I agree with Yoyo. The season is over, so we should give minutes to our young players in real games. I'd like to see Monta/J-Rich/Pietrus/Ike/Biedrins as our main lineup for this games and for the rest of the season, so we can gauge their skills properly.

And I'm sure someone will point "what's up with Murphy?". Murph is a role player (to me), and we all know what he can do. It's time to see Ike, and if Ike looks as good as we've been told, trade Murph in the offseason. Even Troy knows he'll be traded at some point, he's been offered in trades three times already (Magloire, Artest and Pierce)...

btw, we win this one:

Surely the team will win this one! The Magic are crap and don't look like they are going anywhere soon.

You never know though............

I think its time to reward the players that plays the hardest from this point of the season. I don't care who or what have been done in the past, but MONTY and MULLIN needs to sit down and plays players that wants to play to win.

There is no way Dunleavey or Petrius gets boat load of playing time if they continue to play like crap. Diogu and Beidrins should be in there most often than not. I think they finally went to the low block consistently last game and gave Diogu a chance to perform. J rich is the HEART and SOUL of this team, Granted he missed a SH*T load of free throws, he stepped on the court hurt and carried this team. Monte Ellis's D and relentless approach to the ball should give him more PT.

Now to the rest.... I think Murphy plays just as much, perhaps rotate murph, diogu, and biedrins...

Folye, should come in for defensive spark ONLY.

Fisher, well we dont have a PG, so i guess we have to play him...

Put calbert out there, i want someone who wants to compete, i dont care if he is old and not as skilled at least he's out there to win...

For those who say...baron is or was a cancer for this team..taking bad shots....making bad decision.... (I was one of them) hehe...

I take it all back, he makes this team THAT much better, no way, we should let him go, NO WAY...

PLAY the young-ins tonite, MONTY!!!!
