Baron Davis....Stephen Jackson...and MATT BARNES Named Captains?!?!!?

From ESPN:

Don Nelson, yet again, has pulled some bull right out of his oversized pocket.

Stephen Jackson....captain? The dude has gotten ejected too many times too many times....does anyone realise that he and Baron Davis were about one step from getting themselves suspended, and making the Dallas upset never happen? Does anyone realise that his emotions may have cost us the series against Utah? Does anyone realise that these first 7 games that he misses may cost us the playoffs? Get this crap outta my house! You gotta love his heart, but until he learns to keep his anger in check, he's no captain of mine.

Matt Barnes....captain? Approximately one year ago, he was the un-heard of scrub who came to training camp and barely made the team. He did improve, remarkably, to being a consistent BENCH performer. The dude is lucky to crack the starting lineup when there's injuries! During the playoffs his missed 3s killed the Warriors! I'm sorry, but until this guy can prove himself as a STARTER, let alone CAPTAIN, then he is no captain of mine.

Baron Davis is sensible.

Okay, so you're saying, "Zorgon, who could possibly be better?" Oh, I'll tell you who....

4 Possibilities:

Al Harrington: A dude with all the heart and hustle of JAckson, and NONE of the suspensions. Sure, his talent dipped during the early 'offs, but he brings consistent startability along with experience.

Andris Biedrins: Okay, this dude is young, but we all know he's an example to set. He was what, 4th in Most Improved Player rankings? He may not be the leader, but he gets his boards, gets his points, and it's all business.

Monta Ellis: See above, except that he is even better! The dude is still learning, but it's learning basketball skills, not trying to control your anger when you're over 30 years old. Oh, and: Monta for Dunk Contest! Member #1!

Mikael Pietrus: Okay, he might have the same amount of talent or less than Barnes, but the dudes now one of the longest (maybe THE longest) tenured warrior with the sad departure of Jason Richardson, and the even worse departure of League MVP, Adonal Foyle (who this blog was named after).

Bottom Line: Stephen Jackson and Matt Barnes are probobly the 2 worst captains in the National Basketball Association.

Suck it, Don Nelson.

I agree Zorgon. When I think captain, I think Shaq, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, you know, the kind of guys that kids run up to and hug. Kids run screaming when they see Matt Barnes.

Two things to consider.

1. Don Nelson know something you don't.
2. 82 games before the payoffs.


Actually "the beard said", there are more to consider:

1. Yes, Don Nelson knows more than this idiot
2. There are plenty more games up ahead before the playoffs
3. A captain is a LEADER. Jackson, Davis and Barnes are the HEART and SOUL of the WARRIORS. They are hot-headed, yes. But they are the scorers and better yet, the brain on the court leading the other dudes
4. You are not a true WARRIORS fan.
5. This blog should not even be up.
6. Matt Barnes has proved himself more than enough
7. Buddy, you need to learn more about basketball

If you'd look at the post date, it was October 4th, 2007.

It's December 17th, 2007. Stephen Jackson has proved to be a capable leader, and I was WRONG! Stunning fact! It happens from time to time.

Would I make this claim now? HELL NO. So yes, you were right, and I was wrong. So be it.

I'm still skeptical about Matt Barnes just a bit...but why should I trust the woman who has a HUGE mural of Barnes as her avatar? No more than anyone should trust me for unbiased analysis of Adonal Foyle. In any case, I'd like to see a bit more of what I saw last season for me to start calling Barnes "Captain".

And please, don't insult my blog by just reading one post and going "psh". I've been a Warriors fan since 1998, so, yes, I've stuck it out through the thick and thin, unlike a lot of losers who just crawled out of the woodwork.

So, please, in closing, don't judge a book by its cover, and look at the post date before you do post?

I hope you're not offended too badly, and that we can move on.

Since coming into existence online casinos have made quite the splash. For the most part people are no longer held back by the boundaries of where they live and the laws that govern the area. Now pretty much anyone who lives in this world can take part in all the gambling that they desire without having to leave the comfort of their own home. There are however several things that one needs to look for when they are seeking out the online casino of their choosing.
[url=]casino[/url] casino When you are seeking the play based on the bonus you should also check out the cashing out policies that are in place. There are some of the smaller casinos around that will limit the cash out that you can receive. In essence they are telling you when you can have the money that you have won and when you cannot have it. This is a very poor practice that takes place in some of the casinos and you should be mindful of such policies before you start playing. Most of the larger online casinos have no such limitations.

So make sure that you go slowly on transferring money, since online casino, just like traditional casinos, can become quite addictive.

The net has modified our world drastically over the preceding twenty years . Not merely has the internet spread the world by countenancing inst communication, but it has opened up the world by levelling the playing field for commerce. A mortal no longer has to have a fund movement or a commercial bureau to take part in the world of commerce. The cyberspace has allowed for many citizenries to build an internet home based business.

Making an internet home based business has gone a popular means to feed a home based business. The advantages of running a business online include having a large market place, many peoples that bring down that market place and a very lower overhead toll.

Another advantage of unravelling an cyberspace home based business is the semblance of having a big business. The internet can create is a false sense of reality. One soul can feed what seems like a large business, but is really an net home based business.
