"I can go back to my days as a player representative and tell you what happens when a player is considering where he wants to play," Myers said. "They're usually looking for a number of things. In order, it's usually money, a chance to win and the opportunity to play. . . . The franchise's location only comes into play to break a tie, if everything else is equal." Interesting to hear Myers' POV on deciding factors when players are deciding between multiple offers.

He's so full of it right now. Not sure if the amnesty was a mandate from the top. I just don't see Riley's logic for saving the amnesty for later. No one is putting a gun to their head and forcing them to use it or lose it this year. Interesting answer to the amnesty question. Also raises a whole lot more questions, but we'll save that for a later time.

WW.Net posters saying BOB Fitz said we won the toss on KNBR. Haven't heard this anywhere else or any evidence. Hope it's true but stand by for confirmation.

That's his team "He's grown into an NBA player. He's not that unseasoned rookie," Jackson said. "A lot of people didn't expect him to play this well, but I knew in training camp he was going to be real good. That's his team." Jackson on Steph Curry http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/recap?gameId=300306030

Thorpe's Rook + Soph Rankings 7. Anthony Randolph, Warriors Most 20-year-old basketball players in America are playing their sophomore season in college. Randolph, meanwhile, has been a very productive and efficient NBA player. If this list were based purely on upside, he'd be ranked even higher. Questions still exist about his lack of maturity and whether he's better as a 3 or a 4, but I love the improvement he showed before he got hurt. He's one of the most versatile big men in the game and, if he ever learns to shoot the ball well, could be an All-Star someday. 15. Stephen Curry, Warriors Curry is the toughest guy for me to gauge. I absolutely love his game and have always believed he could be an excellent point guard. However, I still see him as a bit unproven, simply because of where he is playing -- Golden State is so unlike any other NBA system. Otherwise, he'd be higher on this list. He appears to be a good playmaker and perhaps can become an excellent one. And, of course, he's a terrific shooter, so he can play in any system and with any players. Imagine him in a Cavs uniform. Or a Heat one. Wow. http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/insider/columns/story?columnist=thorpe_david&page=RooksSophs-100210

Warriors’ Randolph on block again

It seems Nelson gives all kinds of gift minutes to the undrafted and the D Leaguers. And the team loses most of the time, anyway. So Nelson's logic is flawed. Nelson doesn't have a choice whether or not to lose. His choise is HOW to lose. Given that, he should play Randolph and Wright -- lose with them -- because they are talented and they are the team's future. In other words, Nelson needs to develop players for a change and stop working on his myth, which is getting kind of old.

Rumors have floated for months that the minority owners, who are pro-Mullin and anti-Nelson, are attempting to buy out Cohan. If that's true, it can't happen quickly enough.
