Warriors fire Mike Montgomery, reportedly hiring Don Nelson very top

Good pickup by the warriors.

Heard it on ESPN radio before you made the thread. RUN TMC!!! of course, without TMC. Maybe he can get B Diddy, J. Rich, Dunleavy, and all of them clicking. Scary.

Best thing Mullin's done in awhile.

Nelson's great with teams that have a lot of different talents. This should be really interesting.

Don Nelson to the Warriors?

The warriors needed to get rid of Montgomery, so this is nt a shocking decision. Now they only got to trade Baron Davis and everything will be fine.

I'm calling it right now: the Warriors will be the worst defensive team in the NBA next season.

Stellar signing. :applause:

It's about time Oaktown got some basketball to cheer about.

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.

Great time for Warrior fans.

This is a great, great thing for the Warriors.


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.

kwajo 08-29-2006 02:08 PM

^yup. If Baron can stay healthy, expect a huge season from him

dak121 08-29-2006 02:10 PM

With Nelson coaching I think they have a good shot at challenging Phoenix for top scoring team in the league.

A lineup of:

PG - Davis
SG - Richardson
SF - Dunleavy Jr.
PF - Murphy
C - Biedrins

with Diogu, Monta Ellis, Pietrus, Cabarkapa and possibly Chris Taft coming off the bench can run and gun with the best of them.

Defensively they'll most likely be worst in the league but they're going to outscore teams more often than not. This squad can make the playoffs now. Nelson is the perfect coach for them.

I love how everyone is ready to hand the playoffs over them AGAIN this year.

They still play in the WC and they're still at the bottom of their division.
