People tend to underestimate the importance of the culture of a franchise. Teams like the Los Angeles Lakers contend almost every year because they have winning cultures (I suppose that Kobe guy helps out a little, too). When everyone on the team expects to win, it shows up in the way they play. Players hustle at all times, commit themselves on defense and come through in the clutch. When everyone expects to lose, it comes through on the floor as well. Guys start "losing focus" and having "mental lapses." In other words, they give up and fold in the face of adversity.

There is little doubt that Golden State is plagued by a losing culture, but that doesn't mean they can't change it. Like with any successful organization, change comes from the top down. That places the pressure squarely on Chris Mullin and Don Nelson. It is up to them to find a way to keep this current funk from overwhelming the team and sinking yet another season. Mully and Nellie must do whatever it takes to get things back on track, be that a trade or a benching (wait, that won't work, you need to have a set line-up before you can bench someone) or whatever they can think of. Part of a winning culture is taking action when the situation calls for it, hopefully the Warriors have someone there to answer.
