"[Nate Robinson has] been questioned as far as his talent level. There’s no reason that a guy like him should’ve been at home this late in the season. People had question marks as far as how serious he took the game and I had conversations with him, had conversations with his agent … and everybody, to a man, said he was a great guy. … I just thought it’d be a great opportunity to give him a second chance to resurrect his career. Give him credit, he has taken it and ran with it and it’s been great for us."
The trades that have been discussed, I do not want to trade Monta Ellis - I want Monta Ellis to be in a Warriors uniform. Now if you told me we're trading Monta Ellis for Dwight Howard, I would hug Monta Ellis, tell him how much I appreciate him, and then make the deal. And I'm sure Monta Ellis would do the same thing: if you were trading me for Magic Johnson, make the trade.
Absolutely. I fully expect - put it in bold letters - the Golden State Warriors to be a playoff team next year. If I did not expect that, I would not have taken the job. And I won't minimize it with just being a playoff team. We are looking to turn the Bay Area upside down.
