His days of playing 40 minutes a game are over. For his body, his hamstring, less minutes are important for him. We've got to get him consistently playing, so if he feels good tomorrow, we'll see how that goes.
He had one of his best years when he was a sixth man. He'll do whatever we need him to do, so it's no problem with him personally.
— Golden State Warriors head coach Don Nelson
on the team's big $50 million splash this past offseason. Don't blame Corey Maggette
- he's saying all the right things and has tried to play through some injuries. It's not his fault the Warriors' front office didn't do their homework and didn't recognize that they were getting a good one-dimensional, injury prone swingman- nothing more, nothing less. You don't break the bank for that kind of player, especially instead of keeping a top PG in Baron Davis. This signing also partially set off a domino money effect causing the completely unnecessary Stephen Jackson extension. [SFGate
