Ranking All 30 NBA GMs, Where Kahn's Incompetence Is Surpassed [SBNation.com]


Larry Riley has overall done a pretty solid job this offseason. I'll take his 1 year run over a lot of the guys ahead of him on this list. A few very debatable points in this summary as well, particularly this one: "Anyway, it's pretty clear that, while Riley wasn't the head GM, he exerted more influence than Mullin during Mullin's final days in office. We can therefore pin a lot of Mullin's later mistakes on Riley too." Kosta Perovic for the most lucrative and dumbest 2nd round contract in NBA history? Marcus Williams for a future 1st rounder? Sorry that's all Mullin. Aside from trying to concoct a PR stunt of the Chris Cohan/ Robert Rowell variety, there's absolutely no reason why any team with a clue should hire Mullin into their front office.

Larry Ellison Rumored To Be New Golden State Warriors Owner


This SB Nation Bay Area sports stream is a great way to track the pending sale.

Jackson situation isn't one, say Warriors [SFGate]


More nothing-ness as the offseason meaningless-ness continues for the Golden State Warriors aka The Suck-ness. I will say though that it's getting incredibly annoying seeing all these local writers incessantly dismiss Larry Riley as Nellie's puppet. I don't recall the local media going on and on ad nauseam how Chris Mullin's management hire was a publicity stunt by Chris Cohan and Robert Rowell or how absolutely clueless Mullin and Rod Higgins were in the Warriors front office pre-Nellie (and even post-Nellie). Give me the guy who is Nellie's buddy and worked a long road as an assistant coach, scout, and front office exec in this league over a guy "groomed" by Gary St. Jean any day.

Another good interview by the Warriors GM.

Riley and Nelson talk Warriors: On the Monta Ellis visit, the point guard issue, and Jordan Hill [Talking Points]


Here's a very interesting transcription of the Q&A with Warriors GM Larry Riley which was conducted earlier today. Head coach Don Nelson sneaks in for a bit too. I must say Riley sounds far more savvy and knowledgeable than former Warriors front office man Chris Mullin ever did in these interviews. Listening to Mullin interviews was painfully frustrating. He sounded like he was way in over his head.

The Warriors’ party-line transcript: Riley, the Nellie issue and Rowell’s 10-year culpability [Talking Points]


I guarantee you this is more than worth the cost of a click. We should have video from the press conference via Warriors.com later tonight.

No roster shakeup for Warriors [SFGate]


But there will be a front office shakeup if it hasn't happened already. In Nellie and Riley we trust.

It seems to be Riley and Nellie's show with Chris Mullin looking on from afar [Examiner]


Matt Steinmetz gives us an inside look at the current roles of Larry Riley, Chris Mullin, Don Nelson, and Robert Rowell within the Golden State Warriors organization. Everything should be fine in Dubs land as long as Mullin isn't allowed to make the final call on draft picks, trades, and contract dollars and Rowell isn't allowed to make any basketball decisions. Actually if Rowell isn't making any marketing and business decisions even better. In Nellie and Riley we trust. Also see: Rumor: Don Nelson and Chris Mullin Battling at Golden State?
