And can you blame him? The only thing saving the Warriors from being the laughing stock of all professional sports is the Clippers. (how the Clips maintain a franchise worse than the Warriors, I have no's really quite a feat)

I can't understand, for the life of me, why the Warriors want him in the first place? Has Nellie finally decided that defense is just a cute theory with no practical application? A front court with Amare "the pirate" Stoudemire, Anthony Randolph, and Ronnie "the predator" Turiaf couldn't stop me from scoring, regardless of how you combine them. I am still convinced that Amare doesn't know what the term "rotate" means. Can we please get L. Ron to give this kid a dictionary?

Add that to the fact that he has had micro-fracture surgery on one knee (huge red flag) and may need an eye patch. He may as well walk around with a parrot on his shoulder...

This is all a moot point, I suppose. If there is one thing that Golden State has taught us, it's that they will make a mess of things. We can hope that they will free up some cap space and see what happens at "FreeAgentPalooza 2010", but if you were Chris Bosh, or D. Wade or (snicker) LBJ, would you ever, in a million years, even consider Golden State an option? Of course not....

Here is what the market looks like going into the 2010 season. Some of that will change, but it looks pretty nice. Why would the Warriors ever give up a young and talented center (A. Biedrins) for a guy who may or may not be able to read, when 50% of the top tier talent in the NBA is looking to change teams in a year?

We need to dump the crap contracts that we already have (see: Maggette, Cory)...not pick up new ones.

My brain hurts...
