I tell you this...........it SOUNDED horrible.

Win is a win.............even if its a continuation of bleeding 7 guys dry..............hey, atleast we know we will see the young guys in the 2nd half of the season, because these 7 are going to be worn out.

Alright...just got home and took a gander at the score. Needless to say I was happy! But after looking at the box score and seeing how the DUBS were up by so many then took a nose dive towards the end...yes, that wasn't too pleasing!
But like everyone is saying...a W is a W...and if Nelly continues to have a 7 (well...the 8th man doesn't really count yet) rotation then we are ROYALLY screwed down the stretch!

It was about time. We needed this win badly.

Not much to say, because I still haven't been able to watch a single game, but I'm excited about the kind of season Maggs is having, even tho he's played just three games. Can't wait to watch a few games.

Hey, I was talking about Maggs, not the team. I'm pretty sure we're playing some ugly bball right now, without a real PG to lead the team. :wink:

I know he's shooting poorly, below .400, but he's making his free throws, which is a must, and still putting up 20 ppg and almost 9 boards. Those are great numbers, no matter how you look at it.

As for the FG%, I don't think it will improve much until we get a real PG to run our offense.

I don't know man, even though it's not nearly as excited as years past, I'm just excited to watch basketball in general. I mean, anytime you can still feel a bit angry after a win, you know you're still watching a team that's competitive.

I reflect those feelings b/c I'm a 49ers and SF Giants fan. I can't even watch those teams.

i agree its not exciting to watch maggs ( although im glad he is on our team and look forward to the year with him)...
watching the team as a whole imo is very fun.....yeah no fast break
but the scores are very close which make for a good time.

Yeah they are fun to watch. I really like what Turiaf and Maggs have brought to this team. Stephen Jackson is what he is which is a good player sometimes a great player sometimes not so great, Biedris looks great and is playing the best basketball of his career so if we can get some good play at the point we will be really nasty. The way this team is constructed we are not really designed to run the fast break like we used to.
