Opening night is our time to shine. Our time to let the players, the coaches, the league, and most of all the organization know who we support. Whose campaign do we work for?
It's apparent that there is a battle in Oakland. Rowell vs. Mullin!!!!
Right now Rowell is winning. The owner is on his side, the organization appears to be on his side, we even have people signing Rowell contracts (Nellie, soon to be Jack). Now we all know Nellie loves Mully, and I'm hoping Jack feels the same. But there is an apparent rift and there is some serious pull RR's way. He controlled the botched Davis deal, and is bitter about not getting credit for the Indy trade and all the success that followed. If you want to read all the ends and outs and politics of it all here is Kawakami's great blog on it. There is also a pro RR article attached
There is a great part where T.K. talks about how all great NBA franchises are run by basketball guys not money guys. He uses LAL new and old, BOS new and old, and SA with Popovich to make his point. He even leaves out Det under Dumars. But he nails it! All great teams are run by B-Ball guys.
It's pretty obvious who I am in favor of. So let's hear you guys throw in your 2 cents. Who do like? I'm guessing everyone wants to see Mully return but you never know.
We should use opening night as a forum to let our voices be heard. Bring banners and voices. Mully 2008-09 and Beyond!!!!
Warriors, the Bay, and GSOM until I die!!!!!
