    I'm pissed off, ABC got cut off with less 2 minutes left. Channel returned and the Dubs were already winning with a minutes left in OT. It was the best game of the weekend and I missed the best part.

    Bogut had some really good offensive rebounds in the second half, Huge asset to their playoffs effort

    He'll get injured in the first half of the next game.


    AND I'm glad the Warriors are doing well. A TEAM.

    It was a quip. You're not aware of his injury history?

    The Curry-Lee GSW team were a fading 6th seed there to make up the numbers. The return of a fit, motivated Bogut (and, if we're being honest, the subtraction of defensive sieve Lee) has made this team what Mark Jackson probably had in mind when the Warriors made the trade to ship out Ellis and bring in Bogut. The defense and toughness is so much better, the offence runs through the perimeter guys instead of having to play your turn-my turn with Lee in the post, Bogut is a good passer and can catch and finish when he's left open due to a perimeter player's penetation, and with the lane and more shot opportunities opened up Harrison Barnes has become who he was drafted to be.

    I really hope they can hang onto Jarrett Jack for next season. If they can't they should probably go shopping for a similar veteran guard like Luke Ridnour, but the chemistry with Jack is so good it would be a shame to break up the band. The real question is do they try and shop David Lee after seeing how this team works without him.

    Not making it out of this round is good for them, they'll learn that they can't slack off and expect an easy W, maybe make the organization realize what weaknesses they have and make adjustments to the roster accordingly. Unfortunately Amare's contract will limit this, but as long as they keep improving every season, I'm ok with it. After a decade of DISASTER in ny, theres no other town more thirsty for a championship, but always remember what Sonny said, if mickey mantle don't care about you, why care about him?

    I'm well aware, which is why I think comments about injuries are in bad taste, or at least comments that wish injury upon a player, which is how I read it.
