GSoM friend Tim Kawakami talked to Boom Dizzle after last night's game and mixed in some of our favorite flash analysis. Definitely check it out. The Q&A and Tim's analysis are of course great, but the best part has to be that B Diddy is cool with Gabrielle Union. That's more impressive than his stat line last night (33 points on 13-17 FG, 2-2 3pt, 5-6 FT, 13 dimes : 3 TO's, 5 boards, and 1 steal)!
In line with the optimism that's swept Warriors Nation, Tim offers this feel-good analysis of the BD-Nellie relationship:
It's strange, but I can see Baron and Nelson getting along very well for a long while. I don't exactly know why I feel this, but I do.
I was?probably the first guy to predict that Baron and Montgomery would?inevitably-and pretty?quickly-clash. I wrote that the day the Warriors traded for Baron. I wrote that he was a great player, but that he would not always work well with a college coach like Montgomery.
I think I was right.?Baron fights authority, but he loves it, too.?He wants to be coached by somebody who knows more than him. Montgomery was afraid to coach him, and didn't know more than him,?and that just made it worse. Nelson and Baron might jabber at each other, but?they'll understand each other. They won't tiptoe. They'll communicate.
How do you think the BD-Nellie relationship will play out this season?
