Thoughts on the sale, Lee, Wright and more …

I've been on vacation for the past week, attending a family wedding, and was unable to find any free time to put together anything of worth regarding the vast amount of Warriors news that has broken during that time frame. I have a lot to catch up on. In order [...]

Ford reported that the Portland Trail Blazers were close to a deal with the Hornets before the draft that would have brought them Paul. Here's what Ford wrote: According [...]

36 minutes tells the (incomplete) story

I always like to look at players' stats adjusted to reflect starters' minutes (36 per game). I'm fully aware it's not an exact science; especially for players who get very few actual minutes on the court, it can present some false perceptions of a player's ability. In addition, just because [...]

I don't know how you can look at today's trade and not call it a winner for the Warriors. When you consider that Stephen Jackson had 1) demanded a trade months ago, 2) never backed off that trade demand, 3) demonstrated enough erratic behavior to force the Warriors hand in [...]
