I'm sorry to have to make a diary of this but in this thread -- http://www.goldenstateofmind.com/story/2007/7/10/32537/7076-- it was said that we should go for a big man because Nelson had already declared Wright to be of no help for the year.With Nellie declaring that Wright isn't ready to contribute this season, I'm pretty sure the Dubs will have to add another big man.
So i asked twice on the thread for the source and have not yet been provided with one. I'm sorry that i have to keep asking but this statement is huge to me, and i need to see where it came from. For me, if this was truly said by Don Nelson, then it shows a lack of foresight by the front office to trade JRich, a quantifable known, for a player who we thought would have some sort of potential for the following year. After all, Nelson will at most coach the next two years. Why would he trade for a player that would provide him no help whatsoever this year?
Pree, all your abilities as a writer aside, all your history as a Warrior commentator aside, where is the source?
