In the past, everytime Stephen Jackson went against Jason Richardson, Jackson always shuts him down. Lets hope this is true on Friday.

Well, I voted yes, but I guess I should have waited as Webb might not even be in shape :shock: . Warriors should be able to use the Hornets game as a stepping stone, as I always say, I would like to build a good 1st qtr lead. Monta will have another 20+, and Baron will register a double-double. Warriors will win (I still am not predicting scores).

I could not finish this without welcoming back JRich...we miss you dude! I will cheer when he scores, hope he has a great game...hell he could score 100 pts as long as we win :mrgreen:

Do I want Nelson to give Webber some playing time? Of course I do. Will he? Doubt it. I dont think he is in playing shape yet, but I expect him to be fully ready by the Chicago game on national TV. That said, I really do hope he plays. I am looking forward to seeing him. He can only help. At the least, we will be able to see him on the sideline.

How do you guys think he will be percieved?

To the game, though. The Warriors should, and probably will, win. Nice to see J-Rich playing, but wierd not to see him in a Warriors uni. Still havnt gotten used to it.

I am kind of superstitious right now. I am also not going to pick a score.

I for one will give him a great ovation...everyone deserves another chance. Plus if Nellie can deal with it, so can I. As far as everyone else's reaction, I am still not sure. I don't think it will be too good if the KNBR callers are any indication.

i will and am expecting the crowd to go nuts if the announcer makes mention of cwebb....most the fans well some of the fans in my section dont even know who webber is or what happened they will just recognize the name.....so i think it will be a warm very loud recption when he is announced whenever that will happen i couldnt say thought mullins was talking about the bulls game?

We need to be careful for this one. Remember, we lost to them last season in crunch time. If we come out the gates strong we should do OK.

By the way, Webber is PROBABLY gonna play at Chicago on 2/7. So it's pretty much for sure that he won't play Friday.

would be nice to have him reintroduced friday to get the crowd fired up before the game.. the players will feed on that if the crowd goes nuts... it could get the players off to a good start...and offset some feelings that the dubs have in reguards to missing jrich

buike will have a decent game, monta will have a good game, and jackson comes up with some big 4th quarter shots. jrich and wallace will have big games, but its not enough cuz biedrins will have another big rebounding night.

i will be at this game to see the warriors win by 7.

CWebb will see some time...even if its just a minute, or the last 30 seconds to sub in for biedrins who beasted the boards. he'll come in for his debut back with the warriors.

This game is a little scary. The Bobcats are one of those mediocre teams that can play the Warriors well, kinda like the Nets or Bulls. The darkhorse Warrior killer is Felton since the Warriors have a knack of letting inconsistent players play well against them. Still, I can't see them losing this game. S Jax and Barnes have stepped their game up lately and if Webber is introduced, that will fire everyone up. I im interested to see if J-Rich has a good game. Warriors win in a semi close game (7-10 pts).

Whether Webber plays on friday or against the bulls really makes no difference, he wont get in shape in 1 week....but I say play him, he is only going to get in shape by playing in games....as for not knowing the offense, he is a veteran player and he doesnt need to know very many plays to be affective, the only play he needs to know is the pick and roll.

I wont predict the score either, this game will be a battle as Charlotte has been playing teams tough. I better hear the Oracle erupt when they anounce Jrich, basically take what we did for dunleavy, but reverse it :)

The Bobcats are truly disappointing. This team has the talent to be a playoff contender in the east, and they are way below .500 bball.

Should be, on paper, an easy game. I say on paper because Chalotte has talent... but the way they've been playing, this should be an easy win for us.

As for J-Rich, I hope he gets an ovation prior to the game.

Dubs by 10. And no, I don't expect to see Webber on the court.
