One other thing: There hasn't been nearly enough made of how screwed up the Warriors are right now. Their front office and ownership situation is a world-class mess. Their coach has been in "I'm Keith Hernandez" Mode since the 2007 Dallas upset and looks like he's actively trying to get fired. They have two young players everyone loves -- Randolph and Monta Ellis -- only they've been antagonized to the degree that it might affect them long-term. In Randolph's case, how can a lottery team not play a talent like Randolph 35 minutes a game? What the hell is going on here??? For some reason, the only media member who seems to care is Tim Kawakami. I don't get it. If I were a Warriors fan, I would be organizing protests outside the arena complaining about Randolph's playing time. It's insane. Imagine if Chicago was 16-50 and played Derrick Rose 10 minutes a game. Would you think that was weird? You would, right? Welcome to Anthony Randolph's world. This is the single weirdest subplot of the 2008-09 season, narrowly edging Zaza Pachulia's bacne.

In Simmons's latest mailbag, key paragraph below. He has glowing things to say about Anthony Randolph (as he should), but takes time out to crush Rowell, Cohan and Nellie:

His days of playing 40 minutes a game are over. For his body, his hamstring, less minutes are...

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]
