Fresh off his second contract buy-out of the past 2 years, former face of the Warriors franchise Adonal Foyle has been picked up off waivers by the Orlando Tragic to be a practice partner for Superman [Third Quarter Collapse]. Where are all the folks screaming at Nellie for benching Foyle the first second he got here? Can you believe Chris Mullin actually structured a team option for $10.5 million after this season in Foyle's contract offer back in 2004 (see Worst FA's since 1996)? Can you believe Robert Rowell actually approved that deal? Be on the lookout for this summer's blockbuster movie Dumb and Dumber II: The Mullin and Rowell front office. WE WANT FOYLE! WE WANT FOYLE! WE WANT FOYLE!
YaoButtaMing will definitely take Jamal Crawford's 50 point explosion and we're all still searching for the next great nickname. But this pic that Tony.psd and I came up with really captures the hypeness of Jamal's 50-ness and the humor that is this 2k8-2k9 Golden State Warriors season. (Thank god Mr. PSD's got PS CS4 skills or I would've really messed this up.) Can 50 Craw pull an Antawn Jamison and go back-to-back Monday against the Magic in Orlando?
Over at Bullets Forever Pradamaster previews the 2k8-2k9 campaign for one of my favorite Warriors of all time Antawn Jamison. Who could forget the back to back 51's, those "unorthodox" layups, or that willingness to play always hard no matter how "Unstoppable Baby!" the Warriors were year after year while he was here. A true professional. Last season's 21-10 All-Star outing was Jamison's best ever all-around performance. Anyone else think Jamison would be the perfect 4 for Nellie right now?
