I know there's a lot of overlap in readership between GoldenStWarriors.com and Golden State of Mind, but just in case any of you missed it...

Golden State of Mind somehow managed to catch Golden State Warriors television play-by-play announcer Bob Fitzgerald for a quick Q&A during the 2 minutes of free time he had when the Warriors began their current road swing in Phoenix last week:

Good read.

I've begun calling Bob Fitzgerald "the Chameleon" as of late... because he always seems to mimmick the person he's working with. I developed an enormous amount of hatred for the man due to his play-by-play comments... but, listening to Fitz & Brooks, began to sheepishly like the guy as time went on.

All was made clear a couple weekends ago when Bob broadcasted two Warrior road games with Nate Thurmond, instead of Jim Barnette. He called it from the Warriors' side, he was objective (and not pessimistic), and, overall, did a good job, despite a hard loss to the Sonics.

From that moment on, I've known that the true enemy of the Warriors franchise is solely Jim Barnette. Go back to Portland, asswipe.

Thanks for the read, Atma Bro!

interesting. Ithink Fitz is a classic people pleaser, which fits with your analysis. He'll do whatever he can to be the nice guy in a situation...

Yep. It was the most dull interview I've read in the GSoM site. Where's the fun if there's no controversy?

Thanks for posting it, Atma... but I think I like the Kawakami ones better. :wink:

did anyone catch the Fitz/Roye threesome w/Dung last night on KNBR? I missed it and I think my life is now incomplete...

Thanks for all the support guys. The 2nd part of the Q&A is now up:
http://www.goldenstateofmind.com/story/2006/12/18/23429/578

Definitely email us or post on GSoM with any interview requests. You know we'll always try our best.

Also, make sure to check out the new GSoM clothing line we just launched. There's $2 markup on each each item at the GSoM Store over the CafePress prices. Of that $2, we are putting $1 into a to be determined charity and $1 into the GSoM season ticket fund (we're trying to raise money for great season tix to share with the GSoM community). So the profit on every purchase will go directly to a good cause.

This second part is a bit better.

It's interesting that he thinks Biedrins is the second best center in the west... but over Amare and Camby (just to name a couple)? I also think he can (with can meaning can, not will) develop into an all star center, given how poor the position is, but this year seems a bit too soon.

Also, about the playoffs, he doesn't talk about the Hornets, which surprises me. He may have just forgotten about them, tho... but I consider the Clips and Hornets as our main rivals for that final spot.

In any case, thanks (again) for posting the second part, Atma.
