The Warriors Morning Report: Brandon Jennings forces a retraction from Stephen Jackson
By Geoff Lepper
Your daily guided tour through the national and local media coverage of the always-entertaining Golden State Warriors.
Contra Costa Times (Marcus Thompson II): Brandon Jennings’ double-nickel forces a retraction from Stephen Jackson (no, not on the topic of being traded): “I take my words back about Tyreke Evans being rookie of the year. I think Brandon Jennings definitely has that locked up.”
San Francisco Chronicle (Rusty Simmons): Don Nelson flatly refutes Ken Berger’s CBSSports.com story from Friday that he’s going to be consulting in a week’s time. Oh, and Stephen Jackson is not exactly pleased at being a bit player in the Warriors’ final real possession: “All I know is that I’m one of the best scorers on the team, and I was taking the ball out. That’s all I know. My job was to pass the ball inbounds.”
Dime: The Warriors dominate the daily “Smack” feature. Just not in the way you want to. “(I)f Monta Ellis was worried about he and Stephen Curry getting lit up by bigger guards, what did he think about skinny 6-1 Young Money carving ‘em up like Manny Pacquiao did Miguel Cotto?”
Hey, at least Curry is still prettier than Cotto.
Santa Rosa Press Democrat (Lowell Cohn): Don Nelson never offered me a watch. Truthfully, I’m a little bitter about that.
NBA.com (Rick Braun): Bucks coach Scott Skiles: “It’s hard to say this when he gets 29 points in a quarter, but it’s not greedy. He’s open, he’s knocking down shots. He hit three or four in a row and yet they came off and helped and he pitched it to Charlie Bell in the corner.”
Inside The Warriors/Contra Costa Times (Marcus Thompson II): “Another thing the Warriors could’ve done? Knock him on his backside. Is that too old school? (Where is Matt Barnes when you need him.)”
Also, Bobby Rowell speaks (!), at least long enough to try to deliver a bodyslam to Berger’s story: “It’s hard to comment on an article when I have never had a discussion with the person who wrote it. It is complete nonsense.
“We do plan on meeting when the road trip ends, but it has nothing do with that.”
Golden State Warriors/San Francisco Chronicle (Rusty Simmons): I’m not sure where he gets his data, but Rusty says a patellar tendon injury (which is what Kelenna Azubuike suffered, per the team) means at least two months on the shelf.
From everything I’ve read, that seems optimistic, but we’ll find out who’s right next week.

Was watching the Nelson’s postgame interveiw with Rusty halfway in the shot.
Almost vomitted from the softball questions and the pandering smirks he gives Nellie. I know he’s new to the scene, but after reading that Cohn article…. geeez Rusty, Grow a pair.
