The Morning Report: “How sad can a guy be making $36 million over four years?”
Not much to add this morning, so it’s straight to the linkage:
Golden State Warriors/San Francisco Chronicle (Rusty Simmons): Don Nelson goes on the offensive in The Jackson Affair, spinning in the masterly manner of C.J. Cregg: “How sad can a guy be making $36 million over four years? To this day, I really don’t know why (Jackson) wants out. We’re trying to win here, and he can be a big part of that.”
Also, after reading Nelson’s quote about how, “I don’t fall out of love with people. I understand that people get divorced and everything else, but, if you have affection for people, I think it lasts a lifetime,” I have to admit, all I could think of was Jake Gyllenhaal in “Brokeback Mountain.”
Inside The Warriors/Contra Costa Times (Marcus Thompson II): Q: Is it worth worrying about Stephen Curry’s early shooting woes? A: Maybe.
Comcast SportsNet Bay Area: Larry Riley, parrying the questions of Mindi Bach.
Contra Costa Times (Marcus Thompson II): “Multiple sources confirmed former executive vice president of basketball operations Chris Mullin had the makings of a deal in place to send Jackson to the Eastern Conference, as Yahoo Sports reported Thursday. One of the sources said there were talks that included Detroit Pistons forward Tayshaun Prince. But the deal was nixed by team president Robert Rowell’s extension talks with Jackson.”
San Francisco Chronicle (Rusty Simmons): The Warriors paint a rosy picture of how Stephen Jackson’s abdication of leadership has thrust Monta Ellis into the void. One question, though: Wouldn’t a real leader help to share the load without having to wait for the previous leader to flame out in epic, spectacular fashion?
Examiner.com (Mike Massa): If the 2007 Warriors had already been dismantled before he signed his extension, why is Stephen Jackson only catching on to this fact just now?
timkawakami: NBA source: Stephen Jackson’s value is so low teams are asking about Warriors’ unprotected #1 and still want to dump bad money on W’s.
KNBR (Ralph Barbieri): Rusty Simmons on the scene at 1011 Broadway these days.
Warriors.com: Stephen Curry appeases the season-ticket-holding masses. Plus: Acie Law on putting the “small” back in small forward and Andris Biedrins, who still somehow is not a Phoenix Sun.
One Response to “The Morning Report: “How sad can a guy be making $36 million over four years?””
um yeah… this Rusty guy manages to credit Tim Roye and the Warriors Weekly Show for the 1st quote, but that whole Don Nelson interview was the one Nelson did on KNBR w/ Ralph Barbieri on his weekly show and Rusty makes it look like it was his work… just like he didn’t credit Spears for breaking the BW injury…
can’t believe he gets paid to do this. it’s like he goes to warriorsworld, checks out links, then passes the work of others as his own. never thought much of Janny, but this Rusty guy…. it’s like how the crappy refs look great compared to these god-awful replacement refs.
