This is pathetic, right now Azibuke should be playing 30 minutes a night. Our rebounding besides Biedrins and Foyle is beyond pathetic. I say leave Andris in until he has 6 fouls. When he was out of the game in that 3rd quarter we looked like little boys against men.

AB gets more touch fouls than anyone in the league. Its crap really. Hes a center in the f***ing NBA, theres alot of bulk downlow and alot of contact.

Half his fouls are when hes fading back with a post player and just trying to keep a hand up, whats he suppose to do? Walk off the baseline and wait to take the ball in after the score? :banghead:

Next year he better be getting more respect from these refs!!

Agreed! If the Warriors ain't goin' to play defense, give this kid minutes. He had a very solid night against the Nuggets offensively. Why didn't he get more time?!

I called it, right when I heard Matt say SJax arrived, I knew once he played, the Warriors were going to get blown out in the 3rd.

The Nuggets announcers were straight clowning the W's. Especially Monta Ellis and how he never wants to go to the left, and if he goes to the right he always shoots. They were also talking about how the warriors have too many ballhogs. Well thats a no brainer. For games that BD is injured in I would like the starting lineup to be: Monta, Azibuike, Barnes, Powell and Biedrins. At least those guys play as a team and can rebound the ball. When Biedrins sat out the Warriors litteraly could not get a rebound. For christ sake if you are undersized YOU AT LEAST have to outhustle the other team.

Cmon you cant tell me thats not the first thing that comes to your head when you see SJax.

Fair enough, but whats the difference between niggie and the picture of the female you have in your thing. Thats offensive to women right? Niggie isnt offensive but i wont use it anymore if causes problems. But man some guys in here are hypocrites.

Yep. Az is doing the best he can with the minutes he has, and so far has proven that he deserves more minutes than, say, Jackson.

As we are pretty banged up, I'd like to see this lineup playing big minutes: Monta, Az, Barnes, Harrington, Biedrins.

We have nothing to lose. The season's already over (barring any miracle streak of wins)

I was actually pleased when I saw the starting lineup did not include Stephen Jackson. What is funny though is that the minute he got into the game at the start of the second half, he started jacking up shots. Is there a shot on the floor he does not like?

The performance last night was as the Nuggets announcers eluded to a bunch of selfish players trying to pad stats and score rather than doing what it takes to win.

A few quick things:

1. Josh Powell continues to impress me with his shooting rebounding and overall aggressiveness.

2. The Warriors on ball, one-on-one defending is atrocious. Monta, Al, Barnes, Sarunas all were taken to the hoop on numerous occasions last night and no one even made the Nuggets work for their baskets.

3. What is the deal with Al insisting on bringing the ball up the floor. On consecutive possesions in the first half, he turned the ball over with no defender on him. GIVE THE BALL TO MONTA TO BRING IT UP.

4. Nellie has to figure out a way to get Monta involved in the offense when he does not bring the ball up the court. Monta just stands in the corner or on the wing and does nothing. Unless he has the ball in his hands bringing it up the court, the opposing team does not even need to guard. Nellie needs to teach Monta what to do and how to play without the ball.

5. Al and Jackson are gunners and inconsistent gunners at that. These two take bad shots all the time. While at times they make these shots, they are not doing anything to help the Warriors progress and make the playoffs.

6. I hate to say it, but the Warriors playoff chances are all but over. I do not even have much confidence in them Wednesday night against the Knicks.

I think the board could do without pornographic images or racial slurs on it. I think that the moderators should enforce that.

What pornographic images?. You can't be talking about Colt's signature... That's not pornographic. Real porn is not allowed, but that's all. Colt's signature it's ok in my book.

The racial slurs... we've been other times trhough that. It's a matter of how everyone takes them. To avoid further problems, Money has already said that he won't use them.

btw, welcome to the board.

I agree. If u calling "niggie" a racial slur then Colts pic gots to go. Its pick and choose morals up in here like you Right Wing Republicans.

Tell you the truth i could care less about either one, to each his own, but someone gots a board in their eye.

Nice red herring, Tradedunleavy/montastic/money, but you misuse the word - it would be hypocritical to call women bs and c**ts and hate on them and then complain about your racist slur. If you want to equate beautiful women with racial slurs, be my guest. I think you would be in an overwhelming minority on this board (and probably in this country outside the bible belt) in thinking that "niggie" is not offensive and that a pic of a beautiful woman is offensive.....the irony that we are even having this discussion about that most hateful term during black history month is pretty deep. Anyway, thanks for not using the term, and if the pic of the blonde truly offends your sensibilities I will replace her, much to the chagrin of her many fans.
