Kosta has been playing extensive games as a D-Leaguer... and the game proved it.

Just think... if POB, BW, and MB could get equal amount of playing time...

O'Bryant earned some tick. Especially some he'll be playing in front of his home crowd in Minny. Kosta, too.

I hope we see more of this rookie surge from Don Nelson! The youngsters looked READY against the Bucks.

The thing is... I dunno if we will though, but I agree they both earned more PT. Assuming MP is feeling better with his FLU and Barnes is on the ACTIVE list, I don't see either Kosta or POB in the game. Generally, MP and or Barnes is put in the game to play PF with AL shifting over to C.

I really hope he gets some PT this afternoon. I didnt catch the game on Saturday, and I hope to see what all the hype is about. :wink:

Couple minutes, even, just get him in the game.

I hope Barnes is activated and Pietrus is not. If MP doesn't play today, we'll all know for sure that a trade is definitely in the works.

Dunno if I'd call myself a "hater", moreso than a realist. Pietrus hurts the Warriors when he's in the game. Therefore, I never want to see him out there. I don't think that qualifies as "hating".

Call it what you want, it seems like nearly everybody is getting fed up with him. I will have a party when he gets traded. :wink:

I tell you one thing he was in the right position twice so it can just be luck but he put himself in the position to succeed. I must admit the block shot on bogut looked like a foul to me. He looked fluid out there not the great white stiff I was expecting.

I am more dissapointed than anything with his progress because he has the potential to be a very good player but his lack of progress with his dribbling and decision making makes him very dissapointing. One thing is, he is out there competing and he makes mistake because he just doesn't appear to have bball decision making skills but he is playing hard! Then I look at POB, with skills, and decision making but no desire... I wouldn't mind keeping MP but he would have to wake up one day and decide to be better and not style for being okay.
