After watching another pathetic effort by the Golden State Warriors against the Sacramento Kings, it has become clear that the Warrior players have given up on Don Nelson.

The question is how can you blame them? Nelson is one of the most overrated coaches in NBA history. When he has the right system his teams can be pretty competitive, when it's not the right system then his team's are awful.

That latter description is what suits the Warriors for this season. If it were any other NBA franchise Nelson would be fired, but since Larry Riley is basically Nelon's right hand Warriors fans are going to have to endure another pathetic season.

So far this season has been disgraceful. There's no rhythm to this team, there's no plays, it's mostly one-on-one moves, questionable shot selection, and careless mistakes and it's not going to stop anytime soon.

What's even more embarrassing for the Warriors is the fact that the team has been blown out by two of the weaker teams in the NBA in the Los Angeles Clippers and now the Sacramento Kings.

As a Warrior fan even though the team is going to be awful against this year the most disappointing thing has been the lack of playing time for Anthony Randolph. I'm not buying the excuse that he's so injured that the Warriors are trying to protect from further injuring himself.

I think it's just another excuse by Nelson not to play a young player. If you have followed Nelson enough he does not like playing rookies and prefers veteran players.

With Stephen Curry so far I can honestly say he's been disappointing as well, although he has shown flashes of brilliance. Curry needs to start being more aggressive and to look for his shot rather than just looking for other teammates.

Defensively again the team has no clue how to play. Against the Kings within the first three minutes of the second quarter the Warriors were already in the penalty because they weren't moving their feet.

I admit it I was wrong expecting the Warriors to start off the season well especially since their season started off with the Houston Rockets without Yao Ming or Tracy McGrady, I figured they'd lose to the Phoenix Suns, I had them beating the Memphis Grizzlies which was their only victory of the year so far, the Warriors should have at least played close to the Clippers but were blown out, and the Warriors should have beaten the Sacramento Kings, but again were blown out.

Instead of being 4-1 the Warriors are 1-4. You can blame it on the Warriors being a young team at worst by this point the Warriors should be 3-2. But, from the looks of things the Warriors have given up already.

The Warriors aren't even competitive and I leave you with this how much worse is it going to get before it gets better? Another question is do you think the Warriors are the worst run franchise in professional sports?
