Marco will start, he always has, what makes you think he won't on Wednesday? He doesn't even use his legs when he shoot, so his ankle injury won't bother him one bit.

It would be hard for him to start if he cant even run. We dont even know how bad his injury is yet. He could be out for a while.

Well might as well say this season is over then... Marco is what keeps me from watching the Warriors every time, I don't know if the Warriors would be as fun to watch without him :|

Nah, we are going to f*ck that up aswell of course............and end up with a stupid useless 8-10 pick, which we will waste on a big man that Nelson wont play.

They'll be on the back end of a back2back, but still, i just cant see us winning.....ugh that sucks to say...
even with another player down (Belli), ya think Nelson will still somehow find away to hold AR to under 10 minutes?
Aint no king, but im royal. A lifetime Golden State Warrior like Adonal Foyle ( FIRE DON NELSON )

Marco and Randolph were both picked up in that range. You don't need a top draft pick to nab a great player, and having a top pick doesn't guarantee success. Besides, picking in the 7-10 range means we get a legit talent without having to pay anywhere near as much as we would if we were picking in the top 3 overall.

Not to mention picking a bit later (10-14 range) would probably mean our young squad will have developed substantially and our core line up of guys like Monta and AB (and hopefully Wright, Marco, and Randolph) will have formed a cohesive unit capable of winning games.

I'd rather be picking around there and get a second tier talent for less money (and less risk) if it means the young guys are coming along.

But the young guys aren't developing are they :wink:

I'd much rather a top 3 pick as then maybe Nelson would start him, almost have to, and at least one young guy gets to get minutes

He's been playing them more recently. The injuries to Marco and Brandan are quite unfortunate, but both have been playing well and getting more minutes because of it. Now, with them out -- and after having shown how valuable they can be to the team -- we are guaranteed to see Randolph in extended time as well. If he plays consistently well and improves in some of his problem areas (fundamentals...) he should get at least some PT even when our roster is healthy.

Nellie said on KNBR that his plan is to bring in Maggette off the bench, presumably starting Wright (or else Turiaf; God knows he won't start Randolph). He has also said Marco has done very well, which is true, and even pointed out that Kobe complemented Marco on his defense when we played LA, implying that Marco will also get his PT, even if he has to come off the bench once Monta is back.

I know the youngsters have not gotten as much PT as we would like, but I do think they will play more as the season goes on. My previous post is based on this assumption.


Besides, we could have the top pick in the draft and I wouldn't be surprised to see Nellie keep him on the bench. :wink:

If they want high draft picks then they should run everything through their young players like OKC does with Durant. if OKC gets Griffin it's over

Nelson showed last season what he thinks of youngsters. Him playing Kurz as much he does is a disrespect to the other youngsters who were picked pretty high in the draft and a showing of lack of basketball fundamentals, as no basketball genius would do that. Nelson has shown basketball genius in the past and also lack of, a real headcase.

A top 3 pick would be much harder to keep on the bench and would make Nelson look even more crazy. I doubt he wouldn't play a top 3 pick
