Thinking too much about the draft

I've been thinking way too much about the NBA Draft recently, I figured I should share my thoughts with all of you.First, there's this article: h...

Your 2010 Starting Warriors

freedarko.com continues their obsession with the convoluted mess that is the Golden State Warriors. If you know anything about freedarko, you know that they tend favor style and uniqueness over all else, which makes this lineup quite tantalizing. But if your a Warriors fan, and you favor winning, you should be a little worried right now. (Also, I know that Nelson has said his projected lineup is Ellis, Jax, AR, BW, Beans with Maggs off the bench, but freedarko, I think, is being slightly more realistic.)

Interesting Nelson Article from Free Darko

From the article: "There's a team to develop here, but it's entirely likely that by season's end, all notion of well-distributed depth, and a roster full of possibilities, will give way to the belief that what's needed is lesser beings to hang in the background as Ellis and Randolph are given free rein going forward. If it works perfectly, you'd get a foundation that's achieved some measure of order and logic, like a point guard unto itself. And then on top of that, those two. And behind it all, Don Nelson, about to unleash his most diabolical team yet." I'm not quite as optimistic about the future of Ellis and Randolph, but I do like how the article points out that they are mirror images of each other: both are freakish athletes with no true position, both have unique skill sets compared to comparable players, both have flaws in their games that are tough to see them overcoming, both get a pretty fair amount of hate from this blog (and some times for good reason). Another interesting thing that is pointed out in this article, is that Nelson has never been successful without a quality point guard. He's always had a Hardaway, Nash, or Baron to rely on to run whatever freakish monstrosity of an offense he conjures up.
