"[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.

And I'm sure Monta Ellis would do the same thing: if you were trading me for Magic Johnson, make the trade.

New Golden State Warriors head coach Mark Jackson on Chronicle Live this evening in response to Greg Papa asking, "You're ostensibly saying, you do not want to trade Monta Ellis from this team - you want him to go to camp with you this year?"

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.
