as i read through comments and talk to people in my classes about the warriors not making the playoffs i came down to the real reason why we did not make it. losing games we should have won. yes jackson was suspended the first 7 games but they managed to get above the .500 mark. yea nelson did not put baron back in the game against phoenix but they played better without him in the second half. i would rather lose with the squad that gave us the lead than lose it with a player comming off the bench knowing he'll jack up 3's.
i just cant stand how people blame nelson for the warriors not making the playoffs. without him, theres not playoffs last year, without him we wouldnt have a better record than what we had last year. and without him we would not be watching by far the most fun team in the nba. nellie doesnt shoot the ball, execute the plays and he most importantly did not lose the games for us. if its anybody to blame, blame the team for not beating the undermanned bulls, twolves, kings, pacers and blowing leads that they should have kept. the team put themselves in the position they were in not nellie. they just did not protect the home court as every good team should. 48 or 49 wins is one hell of a season and should be playoffs any other year and a powerhouse in the east, but the warriors honestly should of had more than that this season
