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

W's better not drop a few games!!! The jailblazers are quickly hot on their tails! Before you know it the W's could fall to the 8th or 9th spot...
i'll be at the game...
but i don't think we'll pull this one off.

I can't wait to see this game. I really like the team the Hornets have. Good inside players, decent players on the wings, a top PG in Paul. Should be a good one.
As we'll be at home and trying to bounce back from the loss at Dallas, I'll say Dubs by 5.
I don't know about that. I'd take any of their inside guys above ours. And CP is good enough to go against Baron and make you doubt. Of course, we beat them on the SG and SF positions, but not anywhere else.
David West is precisely the guy I had in mind. I think he's a better player than Harrington, or equal at least. He may benefit from playing with Paul, but Al should also benefit from playing with Baron (btw, I do agree that Baron and Paul are on a similar level... I'd take Baron for the last few minutes, tho. At least this year), so it kinda minimizes the effect of having a great PG to increase their respective stats.
As for West and Al exploding for 40 point games, it has already happened for West (once, which doesn't mean much), but not for Al. West has also had 2 more games over 30 points, just 1 by Harrington. As for games over 20 points, West has achieved that in 11 more games (not counting the previous ones) for just 7 by Harrington.
West is also the better rebounder and shot-blocker. And West has ended 15 games with double figures, for just 3 by Al.
Of course, Al has his benefits over West, like being a better shooter, with a longer range, and it's also debatable if West would be a better fit for our system.
There's another detail that makes me doubt, and that's that West plays almost 10 minutes more per game than Al, which skews the stats comparison in favor of West, but I still think West is a slightly better player. Equal, at least.
Now that I see it, it's odd, as I had the impression that Al was playing more... Not much, but around 30-32 minutes.
