I am not a huge fan of his but is it only a matter of time before our other young players feel the same.

on RealGM, someone loosely translated an interview of his. Doesn't read well, especially the Nelson bit

Marco finally expressed his frustration in this interview. A basic translation (my english isn't perfect) of the Warriors-related parts:

Q - Belinelli, did you expect another season like this?
A - No, and it's not easy. I worked hard over the summer in order to play more than in my first season. I didn't think things would be going this bad.

Q - How are you living this difficult moment?
A - I just try to stay focused, give my best in training and in the few minutes I spend on the court, to show that I'm always ready.

Q - There were rumors of a trade involving you.
A - It's not easy, because here it's different than in Italy, trades must follow complicate rules. It's the first time I'm in such a situation. But there are teams looking to get me and I can't wait for it to happen...

Q - During the summer Nelson promised you more playing time.
A - Yeah. I'm not a rookie anymore, so I feel like I've been fooled. After DNPCDs I get really angry. Being treated that way hurts, it really bothers me.

Q - Do you feel betrayed?
A - Nelson can't be trusted. He's an experienced coach, he won a lot, but the things he told me never happened. I never had a chance to show what I'm really worth. If I failed, it would be different, but a situation like this one just angers me.

Q - And it's not easy to attract other team's interest if you can't show what you can do...
A - It's obvious that my trade value lowers if I keep staying on the bench. I really hope it's not going to be like this all season long. Everyone's had a chance, I hope my turn will come too.

Q - Have you ever thought about coming back to Europe?
A - No, not now. It would mean giving up, and I'm not one who gives up easily.

Yeah, I have seen NOTHING from this guy, NOTHING. If I had to drink shots every time he missed a wide open shot, I'd have to check into a 12-step program...

The reason why you have seen nothing out of him is because how can you get playing time if you have BD, Ellis, S-Jax, Maggs, Crawfish and Buke...When you are a second year player...So easy to bash someone when the coach hasn't even put him in the game to prove himself...

Just look at our star AR he can't even get enough playing time
