but i dont get that people are saying nellie is trying to get fired

he said since before the season started that it was a rebuilding year and guess what it was

another thing people like to say nellie has a HUGE EGO well wouldnt it makes sense that he tried to get as much wins as possible to become #1 all time in wins so tanking is stupid

The recent trend over the past 5 year is everyone and their moms overrating INDIVIDUAL defense. Individual defense is not that important stop buying into the hype.

Monta Ellis post all star break numbers:

24 ppg 5 apg 5 rpg 2 stls on 48% FG shooting 86% FT shooting... he's still not "back" yet he looks about 85% or so healthy or up to speed as some say. I wouldn't be shocked if he put up 27/5/5 next year because the offense is catered around him and he is capable.

Dude has all the tools to average 25+ so I'd call that really good.

And yes, I think he'd be able to play good defense if his coach preached any of that. The coach + system matters. See: Ray Allen in Boston.

nellie doesn't have somewhat of an ego. He will not play rookies for the life of him. He shauned Belinelli to the end of the bench his rookie year, and look what he is doing with Randolph, the only reason he is getting this many minutes is becuase the warriors are only suiting up about 8 players a game due to injuries.

Sure nelson is closing in on #1 on the all time win list, but he is also closing in on all time losses for a coach. If this was such a rebuilding year then he should of been playing the rookies waaaaaay more. The warriors are the youngest team in the NBA. Their rebuilding yet stephen jackson is 2nd in the league in minutes played. COME ON NELLIE!!

i dont think he even played belinelli or wright enough. then of course, they have to be hurt all season.

anyone could take minutes from jack, i think he under played morrow a lot of the year too. morrow is soo wet, hes the best 3-pt shooter in the NBA % wise, and actuall bukie is #3.

magette is a good player, but he doesnt fit the warriors style at all. all he wants to do is slow the game down and get fouled and live at the free throw line. i just hated watching jackson commit so many stupid TO's, which he led the nba in this year. i love jack i just dont think he should be any teams lead ball handler and playmaker.

If the Golden State Warriors played defense, they would be a top 3 team in the West. If Monta Ellis became an elite defender, he'd be on the All-NBA 2nd team and All-Defensive team.

i dont think they have played a single game this year with a fully healthy squad. i think they really could be a pretty good team, and their going to get another lottery pick, but that doesnt matter becuase he most likely will get no minutes next year...
