not like he would have made much of a difference anyway!






Oh wait, Murphy would be guarding him! Well that's a 20pt scorer that the opposition is missing but i'm sure he'll be replaced with another one :mrgreen:

Baron fakes an injury to avoid playing in the clutch. Dunleavy chokes to death. Foyle realizes he has no hands and bleeds to death. Don Nelson is forced to suit up and give the young punks a schooling the likes of which they've never seen.

My bro just got tickets. I'm heading to the game.

And, since he knows one of the Warrior Girls, she said she could introduce us to the players if we get there at 5:30.

I am happy as F.U.C.K. right now.

2 days until the SEASON STARTS.... Warriors needs to get off to a great start and not let up this year!

I sure hope J Richardson is ready, granted he probably would be rusty but we need him!!

Updates on the game if no one knows yet...

Phil Jackson said he wants Kobe to play but Kobe said he does not because of the injury. This is for their season opener against Phoenix though, but they do face the Warriors the following game so we aren't sure yet.

Kwame Brown will be out 4-6 weeks I believe. So no Kwame.

Jrich will be a gametime decision.

#32 REPORT

November 1st, 2006 - Golden State Warriors versus Los Angeles Lakers

Key Matchup = SF

LAL - Lamar Odom does it all for the Lakers. Last season, he was among their tops in scoring, assists, rebounds, and blocks. If Kobe Bryant is played sparingly (due to his knee injury), expect Lamar to step his game up big time. Odom plays his best basketball when Bryant isn't in the lineup. If Kobe minutes are under 30, expect Lamar to end the game with around 20 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists.

GSW - This will be a big opportunity for Mickael Pietrus, whose always felt he deserved a starting role. Nelly's been raving about him since training camp (even though his preseason showings were characteristically sporatic). Now is Pietrus' chance to prove his worth; by getting a start in the season's opener. Because Pietrus will be trying to make an impression, I expect over 11 field goal attempts from the young Frenchman (although his up-and-down results make the percentage of those shots impossible to predict).

Factors

Defense. Neither team is stellar. Last year, the advantage would clearly go to the Lakers... but Nelly's overwhelming scoring-style might make defense, for a team like Golden State, obsolete. If the game turns into a shoot-out, the Warriors are at an advantage (even though Los Angeles has the best gunner - Bryant).

First to 100 points. Without slow, grinding defense, things will likely degenerate into a slugfest. The first team to reach a c-note is my favorite to take the contest.

Perimeter dominance. Aside from Ike Diogu (GSW) and Andrew Bynum (LAL), no team has any real post threat. Diogu and Bynum are both currently struggling for minutes. Its likely the quicker, smaller players will dominate this game.

A coaches battle. Don Nelson and Phil Jackson are both equally great head coaches, but their styles are polar opposites. Jax enjoys an organize, scientific, post-match on offense, whereas Nelly prefers to run. The one common ground they share is an inexpicable love for the 'point forward'... and, as it stands, Lamar Odom is currently head and shoulders better than Mike Dunleavy Jr (GSW).

Predicted Outcome

GSW (112) - LAL (96)

Leading contributers:

Points: Richardson (29) / Bryant (34)
Rebounds: Murphy (14) / Odom (10)
Assists: Davis (11) / Parker (6)
Steals: Pietrus (2) / Parker (2)
Blocks: Biedrins (3) / Mihm & Odom (1)
Turnovers: Davis (4) / Parker (4)
Fouls: Biedrins (5) / Mihm (4)
Minutes: Davis (36) / Bryant (38)

Your saying Richardson will get 38 points in less than 36 minutes? Coming off his injury too?
