What time is it? DAVID LEE TIME!!

That's right - our $80 million big man has been cleared to play (still a game time decision) after being bitten by the Vampire that is Wilson Chandler.

Sure, we've won one game in his absence, but I think it's pretty clear that we need Lee's rebounding ability.

That's not to take away from Andris Biedrin's big performance last night (28 points and 21 rebounds - see -RECAP #16: Golden State Warriors 111, Memphis Grizzlies 116- Not so Smart coaching = 1-7 without David Lee) but I'm pretty sure we can all agree that Lee's abilities will lead us to victory.

And after the jump, I got 3 reasons why David Lee is one of the best players in basketball, nay, roughest toughest NBA player out there!


1. David Lee counted to infinity - twice.

Betcha didn't know he was a scholar, did you? Wha'd he do in college? Not only was he a monster on the ball court, but he excelled in his coursework. I once asked him...

"What do you get when you average 20 points and 11 boards in the 2009-2010 season?"

His answer -

"David Lee. "

Do the math yo.


2. When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks for David Lee.

Yes, David Lee's Kryptonite might be a Vampire named Wilson Chandler, but that doesn't mean he's still not a monster to every other NBA PF.

Who else on the Warriors is averaging 14 points and 11 boards?

Just like Keith Sweat said - "Nobody."


3. They once made a David Lee toilet paper, but it wouldn't take crap from anybody.
Let's be real for a second, David Lee wasn't treated like a king when he was with the Knicks. Likewise, Anthony Randolph wasn't really treated all that well when he was here...seems like a perfect trade, right?
Cept David Lee made some noise in his homecoming to NYC - 28 points, 10 boards, 4 steals...and a little minor injury.
Anthony Randolph? DNP - Coach's Decision.

Where's that potential now?
We got this. We have to get this. The losing has to stop.
K-Love is a beast and there's no denying that. Darko Milicic is scoring (what the?) but that doesn't mean anything.
Here's to hoping David Lee gets some burn tonight.


What are you thankful for?
