Seth, that's the second time today I've seen someone use "Big Al" in reference to someone besides Al Jefferson (the other being Thorpe in reference to Al Thornton). I don't like it.

I agree, but I think Azubuike has been better then expected (big shoes to fill) and Monta worse, dunno why you threw POB out there I mean he's not expected to do ANYTHING...

I think it's required by law that anyone who goes by "Al" rather tan Allen be referred to as "Big"

and since I own both Al and Big Al in our league, I can talk about them anyway I please...

I threw POB in because I was 100% sure he would be an F. Since he isn't I am completely shocked. I DEF dont think monta deserves less than a C and I think we're seeing too much monta hate. His switching hands layup was play of the night last night. Yeah, probably should have went B+ instead of B- for expectation vs results reasons for whatchagonnaduke.

god, will the warriors ever win a game this season? i get so depressed about them sometimes. reminds me of the year before last when i had season tickets when they would just find ways to blow games.

the only real positive notes has been baron (obviously) and azubuike.

harrington is shooting the ball well but it overmatched on defense. monta has regressed badly this year. i am still hopeful for biedrins. his numbers still look good averaging almost a double-double, but just watching him you can see he has lots to work on still.

at least i am still convinced this team is better than seatle though.

I don't know what constitutes "normal" for the development of a big guy, because, as a Warriors fan, I don't think I've ever seen it happen. However, what I think is happening to Biedrins this year is, as he's expanding his game, be it ever so slightly, he's starting to think/hesitate, and it's hurting him.

In the past, they pretty much wouldn't give him the ball unless he was right by the hoop, so he could get an easy dunk. Now, he's added this little 5-6' jump hook, and he's getting the ball a step farther away. When this happens it looks like he's thinking, "Do I shoot it here? Do I take a step and try to dunk?" This split-second is enough time for (a) him to fumble the pass (b) allow the defense to recover.

bump for winning streak! If we can beat the knicks the w's will carry a nice 3 gamer into what looks like it'll be an amazingly entertaining game at Boston
