jsw is probably one of the most pessimistic person on this board about the team.

Once again, Baron started slowing everything down at the end and everyone stood around and watched. We overcame the defecit and went ahead when we were running up and down the floor with the Suns. I hate it so bad when he does that. Yeah I konw, broken record.


Uh once again, you all fail to realize that come the end of the game, when every possession becomes a half-court set, we have NO ONE that can create shots. Not sure what you're watching, but I sure see Monta handling the ball at the end of the game WAAAAY too much. He's a turnover waiting to happen. And doesn't nearly have the ability to create on his own.

That "pass the ball around" crap doesn't work at the end of games...who the hell would you want taking the shot for us anyway? we're forced to have to rely on BD to create...

thats why he becomes the scapegoat - unnecessarily - when we lose. Monta's the one that lost the game for us...traveling, charges, dumb passes...all in the critical 4th quarter stretch...

if you want to blame, which you shouldn't be doing at all - that's the man to blame..not BD.

i can make an entire list as to why we lost, none having to do w/ bd.


Can you say ALLEN IVERSON?

I think I'm more realist than pessimist. If you'll notice, I'm usually talking about the basics of basketball. I just get discouraged when I see supposedly the best players in the world lacking in basic fundamentals. It's unfortunate, but the team I love happens to be lacking more than most. It's frustrating, because I know that if they TRY to play defense, block out or keep the ball moving on offense, I know they can do it.

I also am not a fan of Baron Davis for the same reasons. You would think that he would know that he's not a great shooter by his terrible shooting percentage, but he continually jacks up fadeaways and three point bombs. This is not in the team's best interest, but nothing seems to change him. So yes, you'll see me bitching about Baron.

Look through my previous posts, he's the only one that I'm down on.

When it comes to the Warriors, that's almost the same... :wink:

I undestand where you're coming from and lately, I also am feeling pissed about Baron's late game screw ups
