I've been a Warriors fan since they traded Chris Webber. Can you imagine how that's like....

I think the Warriors finally found their surprise this year. If Morrow has another good game with the presence of Rudy Fernandez and Greg Oden, that should make all critics start thinking about another runner for rookie of the year.

We already have our next game thread???. That's what I call effectivity, Krome.

It won't be as easy. The Blazers' D won't be as bad as the Clips, so we won't be able to score 120 points on them. Still, I think we have a chance if we're able to limit Roy and Rudy.

I can't wait to see what Morrow can do against them. Let's see if he's for real or not.

I dont think Morrow will play on Tuesday because Nelly "didnt like the match ups" ... I would have a brain hemorrhage, but nothings out of the question with Nell-dog. I realy dont think he's a fluke, even when he was getting minimal minutes he still came in and knocked down shots right off the bench. One more solid game and i'm uh be rockin his jersey for sure.
Aint no king, but im royal. A lifetime Golden State Warrior like Adonal Foyle ( FIRE DON NELSON )

The key to the game is containing Steve Blake....not sure why, but he lights up the Warriors from beyond the arc.

Nelson said he didn't play Wright against the Clippers because of match ups. I do think he'll be much needed Tuesday since Andris will be going up against Oden. AB just cannot cover both, Aldridge will post you up, Oden will grab boards. Wright must play.

I'll just never understand that line of thought "ok they're big, so we'll go really small"

Andres will have an easy defensive night becuase he will be guarding oden, hes terrible offensively right now...
I have seen the 49ers win a Superbowl. I have now seen the Giants win a world series. I need one more championship in my lifetime to make my life complete...
