i'm not shocked at all that nelson is back in coaching... but i am suprised it's with the warriors.
warriors need to move baron, dunleavy, murphy and foyle for expirers and picks and focus on the youth they have down there...
ellis, diogu, pietrus are all young studs and need to be given playing time.
i think this almost gives the Warriors the opportunity to be a 45 win team. They have talent, and though Nelson's coaching will never get them deep in the playoffs, it might actually get them there though, which for Golden State is a rare accomplishment.
*crosses fingers he'll give a major role to Pietrus*
You can forget about the Warriors moving Baron Davis, Don Nelson is about to show BDiddy how to tap his talent level. Baron will be a STUD next year, book that.
This is a great hire by Mullin, Nelson will have the Warriors as an elite team within 3 years. I am just very interested to see who joins Baron and JRich as the 3rd of the Big 3. Nelson loves to have three guys that are all star level; TMC, Dirk/Nash/Fin, I wonder if it will be Pietrus, Dunleavy, Diogu, or Biedrins.
I'm calling it right now: the Warriors will be the worst defensive team in the NBA next season.
That's a thing, they were putrid defensively last year too, but they also sucked on offense and had no chemistry. They've just solved that problem. If they can get all that offensive talent clicking... wow.
They still won't win a title or anything but at least they could make some noise and/or the playoffs.
