I doutb we'll see another trade before the deadline... everybody talks and talks, but I can't see any big trade looming (I'm talking about the Ws, not the whole league)

btw, as we play at home, Ws by 8.

eh... W's must trade Saras, if they don't use this player :( Or trade one or two from many SG/SF's for big rebounding man... :) Monta, SJax, JRich, Azubuike, Pietrus, Barnes - it's nonsense to have so many similar good level players in one team :) + W's have Biedrins, who can't play without foul trouble, Harrington, who can't rebound and block as normal power forward and Foyle, who can't play normal basketball at all... Weak roster, no chance to reach playoffs without normal C or PF...

i hope, we'll see another trade - otherwise we can declare, that this season for Warriors is ended...

I hope they do trade him. In limited time, he's shown me NOTHING. But I digress...

Richardson comes back hot and goes for 18 or more in limited minutes (>35).

Al Harrington tosses ONE oop to the Slam Dunk champ, Monta explodes as a PG, and Biedrins gets in foul trouble again. Warriors (with their returning champ) beat Memphis by 10.

Can't say I see I trade coming (but I didn't see the indiana one coming (and neither did anyone else seemingly)).

That being said I think this squad can take us the playoffs and Memphis should be a doormat. With the league's second worst record they even have a vested interest in losing. They don't even need to keep their star happy as he officially is on his way out.

I've started to like Cabbages though. He's gotten a lot better over the last couple of games. He's extremely good at getting people in the air and drawing the foul and doesn't make that many mistakes.

Richardson goes off in his return game. Monta and Harrington torch the Grizz. Miller goes three crazy. Gay expresses that ex-Warrior Hardaway is a fool for coming out and saying such comments about gay people and that he announces that his last name isn't Gay for nothin'. Gasol finds out that he was traded just hours before the game.

In other words, W's by 5.

:mrgreen:

Seems like the Nets are the front-runner for Gasol right now (for Vince Carter... in other words, just a salary dump for Memphis. If this happens, Jerry West will have officially lost it)

I'm just glad Gasol's leaving the conference. Be it Chicago, NJ, wherever. Get him outta the West.

tbh, i'd really like to see how that guard combo works out. Monta showed us that he can be clutch and can shoot. He just has to show us that he can make the decisions on the court.

Lastly, glad to have JRich back. We need him back at 100% full throttle to make the playoffs.

Wow, good to see Richardson's face in the Game Preview, haven't seen that in years.

Anyway, were at home with J-Rich back. And were playing the Grizzlees.

Isn't it!?

I feel like the name, in itself, adds respect and recognition. Richardson's the superstar out of all the starters (except, arguably, Gasol).

I've despised Gasol since his rookie season where I felt Jrich should've won the ROY award.

Ehhhh...

I would've liked it, but Gasol was averaging 18 and 9 his rookie season. JRich barely broke 14 PPG his rookie year.
