The Morning Report: Shannon Brown and Mikki Moore, getting very, very dirty
KCAL (via YouTube): Start here, with Shannon Brown crapping all over Mikki Moore in hi-def. (Or click on the jump for the embedded video.) Honestly, that dunk was so personal and intimate, it felt like we ought to give the two of them the arena, alone, for a few minutes, to work out the ramifications amongst themselves.
Ball Don’t Lie/Yahoo! Sports (J.E. Skeets): The Dunk Heard ‘Round The Internets.
(BTW, all jokes aside, when you take the Brown dunk and combine it with Kobe Bryant skirting Moore like a pylon on the Lakers’ very next possession on his way to a banked layup and three-point play, it does make you wonder if all Moore can give you defensively is a poor imitation of Mike Dunleavy Jr.’s constant attempts to draw charges. Because if that’s the case, the Brandan Wright injury is going to hurt more than I even expected.)
Inside the Warriors/Contra Costa Times (Marcus Thompson II): “This could be one of those seasons,” reads Marcus’ lead, and while that does say it all, there’s plenty of other nuggets to unearth, so keep reading. Kelenna Azubuike was out with a sprained ankle, joining Ronny Turiaf, Devean George and C.J. Watson on the sidelines. And I loved this description, which definitely fit with what I was able to glean from stealing glances at a wonky Justin.tv link while covering another event: “(Anthony) Randolph finished with 18 points, 12 rebounds, 4 blocks and 4 turnovers. At times it looked as if he was the only one playing defense.” I fear we’re going to see that last sentence repeated about 14,000 times before April rolls around.
Fast Break/San Jose Mercury News (Adam Lauridsen): Adam correctly points out that Andris Biedrins got abused, yet again, by Andrew Bynum. Would it surprise any Warriors fan to learn that of the 29 other NBA teams, Bynum averages the most rebounds per minute — 19.5 per 48 — against the Warriors? However, I think his worries about Stephen Jackson may be a little overblown. Did Jackson jake it last night? Sure he did. But it’s a meaningless exhibition with a third of the team hurt. I think it would have helped Jackson’s image with fans if he’d played hard and raged against the inevitable outcome, but he clearly doesn’t care to play that game.
Golden State Warriors (Rusty Simmons): A bevy of quotes in Ye Olde Notebooke Dump, including this kernel of truth from George: “Winning covers up all drama. I’ve definitely been on teams and guys didn’t get along, but everyone in this world isn’t going to get along. You just have to be able to work together two or three hours a day. You have to put everything aside for that time and get down to business.”
Contra Costa Times (Marcus Thompson II): Ten days into his NBA career, Stephen Curry has already been moved up to “part-time” starter. Memo to Don Nelson: Can we just end the charade now and install him alongside Monta Ellis?
San Francisco Chronicle (Rusty Simmons): This is what happens when you don’t send your beat writer (for, we presume, budgetary reasons) to a preseason game in which your franchise player sprains his infamous left ankle: Five paragraphs atop the NBA roundup.
It all started innocuously enough for C.J. Watson in his L.A. hotel room late Wednesday night. . .

Does it matter that the dunk was a charge?
Mikki didn’t even challenged the shot…let’s see Brown do that on Randolph.
Geoff Lepper October 8th, 2009 at 1:30 pm
Michael: It’s not, because Mikki’s left foot was on the restricted-area line.

If a vet like Moore isn’t going to man up and try to block that shot, and give a hard foul, who in the hell besides Ronny on this team will? What a pathetic joke of a team.

That was not a charge but with all the noise I was expecting something much nastier… I’ve seen way worse dunks than that.
