Atcually, it's pretty easy to understand. He's in Nellie's doghouse right now... as to why, only Nellie knows. But this will keep happening until Ike figures a way to get out of it.

About the game, it was a good win. The team is back over .500, so I hope they can use it to build some momentum.



If the team were to lose 4 straight or something like that, Nelson would have to play Diogu more

We all know he's in the doghouse...but I think the question is why? He continues to do well in the few minutes he gets...I think Nelson has always had a pattern of playing favorites and getting irrational hard-ons - look at Sarunas...

Probably because he can't run all that well. Or at least hasn't showed that... Also, Nellie surely has a hard on with Barnes play at PF (he came from nowhere, so Nellie must have some merit too). Just guessing.

Only Nellie knows the real reasons, but the undeniable fact is that he produces whenever he plays. And still gets no time (or close to no time). Puzzling, to say the least.

Great game by the Warriors.

They built up a lead early and this time, they didn't just hang on to it, they did well to play their game in the end and did not lose face.

The only thing I didn't understand was, the cheering was louder for Leon Powe than it was for the home team. Le-on Powe, Le-on Powe!

::lol:

Way to remind the front office that it's a good move to pick local hero's with second rounders.

it just seems like a slo-motion train wreck...once again we may watch a talented W move on to star somewhere else, and if I were Ike, I would be starting to develop a fairly full and justifiable bag of resentment at how first Monty and now Nelson treat him.

Nasty wins like this one give me hope. Even the worst teams have great nights where every 3 falls and every rebound is a long one.

Those wins, in the words of a '70s comic strip guru, "don't mean sheeet".

He said that in response to every question about heavy stuff.
