The Warriors Report: The return of the Don Nelson Not-So-Much Comedy Hour
By Geoff Lepper
Your daily guided tour through the national and local media coverage of the always-entertaining Golden State Warriors.
San Francisco Chronicle (Rusty Simmons): Nobody does internally directed criticism like Don Nelson: “They posted when they wanted, they penetrated when they wanted, and they made us pay whatever price they wanted. We just didn’t compete.”
Also, Anthony Morrow and Chris Hunter will have the remainder of their contracts guaranteed this week, unless the team waives them. There’s no chance of that happening with Morrow, but there’s still a little bit of doubt on Hunter, although I’d hazard a guess that it’s a 90 to 95 percent “yes.” The team is expected to make its decision on Monday.
Contra Costa Times (Marcus Thompson II): “Round 2 goes to Brandon Roy.”
Don’t forget . . . Round 3 goes to Andre Miller, round 4 goes to Martell Webster and round 5 goes to — gulp — Juwan Howard.
Also, the inevitable Gilbert Arenas followup story.
CSNBayArea.com (Matt Steinmetz): Pointing out that Stephen Jackson might have been able to help the Warriors a little bit last night.
Examiner.com (Mike Massa): “The Warriors have waiting months to get (Andris) Biedrins and (Ronny) Turiaf back, so why did they combine for only 34 minutes? This was the game they could have dominated inside.”
I think you know the answer, Mike, and its name is Donald Arvid Nelson.
NBA.com (Kerry Eggers): Great lead: “The Trail Blazers’ locker room may remind of an infirmary these days, but it’s not a morgue.”
Talking Points/San Jose Mercury News (Tim Kawakami): Tim takes on a subject I’ve been wondering about myself: Why is Monta Ellis’ +/- worse than that of his team in general?
I didn’t go into nearly the depth Tim does, because my 10-minute conclusion was this: Ellis takes so few minutes off, and gets his little rest so predominantly in garbage-time situations, that the off-court stats for him are too small and too skewed a sample size to be trusted.
But that doesn’t keep this from being an interesting read.
GoldenStateWorriers.com: “The time for being polite is over … this is no longer a matter of opinion. We’re not talking about what we think about a painting. We’re talking about a math problem. Don Nelson’s coaching is objectively bad. It is sad, it is stupid, it is indefensible. He is pissing on the legacy he created through decades of intelligent work. For the love of God, someone fire this man, before he unravels everything he’s built.”
NBA.com: Highlights from the mothership.
CSN Bay Area: Don Nelson, postgame.
