I think were better then Houston. Poor refs, Dumb plays (Jackson cough cough) and an injured Anthony Randolph held us back. I feel good about this year so far and I'm not too concerned about the loss.
Monta Ellis - Ok, Nelly was right he is not a point but wow he looked like his old self. Despite 2 missed layups he played great. He was quick, had a great crossover, broke out the spin, great jumper, decent defense and LEADERSHIP. He rallied players on the court and plays followed suit. I expect an outstanding year from him
Stephen Curry- Wow. He played great at point. Great passer, good shooter, GREAT defender and despite a few rookie mistakes he did just fine. I would like to see him more aggresive but it was only his first game. Him and Monta can work sometimes but not all the time. Overall he was very impressive.
Stephen Jackson - He just did not care. He walked out during intros on opening night and the guy behind me said it perfectly. He said he does not care cause he's out of here in a month. He played bad defense, threw a few good passes and made some shots but still did not care. He's doing just enough that teams would want to trade for him.
Ronny Turiaf - He got in foul trouble cause of these awful refs but overall he played alright. He blocked 3 shots but was awful in the end of the game. Must I say more?
Andris Biedrins - What happened to him on the boards? He looked very average at points but still, foul trouble killed him. He also looked confused at times when guarded buy Hayes or Scola.
Anthony Morrow - Can someone pass him the ball please?
Kelenna Azebuike - The guy was great, he just needs to be in more. Same as Morrow, PASS HIM THE BALL!
Corey Maggette - Other than some bad shot selection in the 4th he was ok. Great on the boards, but he can't be in late in the game cause he will just hog the ball and try to be the hero every time. His defense was average. Just stop shooting jumpers and he will be fine.
Anthony Randolph - Looked great in his limited action. When he comes back we will be so much better. He grabbed 5 boards real quick and brought great energy. Just wait until he's healthy.
Food stands - $12 dollar beer? Really?
Overall if the team stays the same I say 35 - 40 wins. If Jack leaves and we get Z, Wallace etc. we could be 42+ easy. Monta and Curry were great, AR will be great and with a good supporting cast we should be fine.
