I feel so indifferent about that. Hell, gets us that much closer to the John Wall/Larry Ellison era, and the end of the Don Nelson era. Isn't that what we all want?

Said right. I'd take all losses from now on, as bad as that is. It will put this franchise in even more turmoil and more than likely promote a complete change; owner, president, coach, pretty much everything and then maybe, just maybe there can be some competence for the first time in a long time

It's a bit sad that Houston, who doesn't have a better roster than ours (more balanced, yes, particularly inside with Scola and Landry, but not better overall in terms of talent) is in playoff contention and we're, as usual, sucking...


Rockets by 8.

I know guys, I dont really care either..........but I still have those moments of love that make me think and post things like that.

I STILL get that thing also when Im watching a game, as much as I dis-like nearly everything about our team and right now there arent really any players on the floor that make me want to watch (except Curry and Turiaf)...............if we are close, Im getting all pumped up and thinking we are gonna win, and then Im like =

"Urrgggh, I dont want them to win cuz it will buy Nelson more time"

Such a horrible state for us fans to be in.

I am right there with you man. My fiance gets all irritated at me because I get excited when the W's are hanging tight late in the game. She always repeats the line "why do you even bother, you now that they are going to blow it". Usually that is followed by something along the lines of her being exasperatedly unsurprised when I break the news that they lost following the game.

Between being a long time Falcons fan, a dubs fan and to a lesser extent a Giants fan I believe she thinks I am some kind of sports masochist. She just doesn't understand what it's like to be a fan, and it's really not something that can be explained to somebody who doesn't already know.

:banghead: = Warriors fandom.

I voted yes for the same old reason that, since this is a game they should lose to extend a losing streak, they'll probably come out with wicked energy and lights out shooting and surprise us all.
Predictions: Monta a volume shooter with at least a decent fg%; Ariza a volume shooter with a bad fg%. Curry's D frustrates Brooks all night. Biedrins has his most active game of the season and wins more than his share on the boards. Turiaf swats at least five. Maggs has a game like he was having a few weeks ago. The ball moves on offense... & the Dubs by 12.
I Believe - that Curry and Monta are gonna have a lot of fun playing together for many years to come.
I Believe - we will be the most improved team in the league next year.

Defense, even Warrior defense, at some point might be nice.............or are we going to let the worst winning team in terms of FG% (43.4 as a team) shoot 60% on us all night?

Ohh and yeah, Monta is gonna have a career high tonight...........trouble is, so will Ariza, Landry and some sh*t bird like Buddinger.
