I doubt Ish starts. For some reason they have completely gone a 180 on him after he played well in NY. They didn't like something. I can't imagine it just being a mistake, you let him learn from mistakes and grow like the rest of the young squad. He must have done something or said something to upset coaches.... Or there is a trade in the works that we havent heard about. Other wise it makes no sense.

Something prompted them to acquire Robinson... I hoping it is a trade because we need some help. And some consistency.

Well see, but in start i go for

C - Biedrins
PF - Lee
SF - Rush
SG - Tomphson
PG - Ellis

But its only my opinion. :) If Jackson wants play defense - play with bigs. I they play small ball against Lakers and Bynam - there will be ugly lose. Only who can make some affect on Bynam play is Beans. And maybe Kwame because he have some size and kg. But all in all, Kwane dont know what means block shots. See what will happens, but think be same story. Small ball and -20.

Kolins, welcome. I just don't see why all the hate for Kwame about his defense. True, Kwame is not a great shot blocker, but he never was, to begin with. My point is that good defense doesn't mean blocked shots. He is really good defender one on one, and is making opponents take low percentage shots, which is what you want from a player. You have types of DeAndre Jordan, he has quite a few blocks per game, but he just sucks on so many levels on defense, despite blocks.

Kwame is valuable part of the team, especially on defense. I would like Jackson to play him and Biedrins throughout the game. Against the Lakers even more than other games.

I agree one vs one Kwame is solid. But its not all, he need to help more teammates. Blockin opponents, contest shots and etc. Lee can be a huge factor Warriors to take wins from team like Spurs, Lakers. Because he have shot, offensive fundaments, but he dont play defense, if he start take smarter shots and play some D Warriors will be better team. Ellis and Curry is pure shooters and scoring machines, so not worry about this two defence effort.

Hope someday AB15 can shoot FT like his prime time, and hope Mark Jackson give him more minutes on court. Last game against Spurs I dont see any one bad thing from Biedrins, he was on cruise control.


Maybe I too much praise Beans .... [-o<

I was just taking a wild jab here on the starting lineup. I would like to say Thompson or Rush moves into the starting lineup and Ellis to the point, but the last time I thought that, Ish started...so :-)

warriors have no chance of winning this if they match positions. the only way they could have a chance is by running and spreading the floor for threes (which they do not do this season) and pick n roll (forgotten art here, and impossible with kwames of the world). that means, small ball, at least to close out the game if miracously kwame has a chance of slowing bynum beforehand. btw, can someone answer me why kwame brown was at the end of last game shooting freethrows? two wasted possesions.
since curry is out, we need wright and brandon rush to step up to force lakers to sit bynum or gasol. otherwise we have 0 chance on talent alone and matching up would really mean giving up since there's no chance in the world that kwame/biedrins can outplay bynum, lee outplay gasol.
monta at point.
brandon rush at sg.sf
dwright at sf.sg
lee on gasol
biedrins/kwame on bynum only to start switching to...well we have no big men that can shoot, so it must mean sliding lee to center and hoping that threes fall down and knees run wild and force gasol into center with bynum on the bench.

Beans have midly sprained right ankle. Do not train at morning training. Good news is that is very light injurie and it on his right ankle not left. So he will play I think against the Lakers.

Barnes misses the dunk, and then Kwame reponds in the same way. We can't allow ourselves to do that...they probably can.
