He's been playing lights out this year.  Averaging around 19 points per game, but I think that will go down after Stephen Jackson comes back.  I was a fan of Azubuike in college, in fact I was a fan of that whole 2005 Kentucky team (Rondo, Hayes, Sparks, Azubuike, Morris, etc.) and I don't know if other people are noticing how well he is playing.  He is a candidate for MIP after averaging a mediocre 7 points per game last year.

Hopefully he keeps his starting spot when S-Jax comes back (that would mean benching Barnes/Pietrus)

Dude, Bukie has (arguably) been our best player this year. This dude is nuts! He has crazy athleticism, a natural feel for the game, and is a crazy scorer. I have a feeling that he will be better than JRich, as sad as it may be. He's much more consistent and fits in much better. It was like getting a free top 10 pick Smiley

J-Rich deal was good because

1) Buike is a capable replacement and younger and cheaper and less injury prone
2) We got a nice young piece in Brandon Wright
3) We needed the money for extensions for our best players

This guy has been playing his heart out. A total steal for the Warriors - he fits right in with their style of play.

Would take Hardaway over Payton in man to man defense.

'Bookie' dominates.  Nellie thankfully has been instilling lots of confidence in him, a rarity on Nelson's part for young players.

I loved the J-Rich deal.  He was here through the ups and downs, DEFINATLY a class guy, however what the Warriors were trying to do just did not fit with him.  You cant have your 2 guard not playing defense.  He just wasnt good enough.  Now you got room for Bookie and Monta and even Belineli ( sp? ) to develop.  

Brandan Wright will pay HUGE dividents for years to come.  LONG guys like that with the knack for the ball are awesome.  Throw him and Biedrins together, well gobble up EVERY rebound, and with our uptempo game, well ANNIHILATE every team.

1 sided?  Sure, but thats why I am a Warriors fan baby, and last night's game VS Houston was a sign of things to come.  BRING ON THE SPURS BABY!
