How a young NBA franchise gets it going

Hey, did you know Dell Curry’s son plays for Golden State?

Posted by Sup on January 29, 2010

Yes, we have heard it ad nauseum. Stephen Curry is a rookie guard with the Golden State Warriors. It was repeated early and often by the TV team during the Phoenix game, and Dell Curry did note multiple times how nervous he was to see his son play.

Now, we are in Charlotte, and Curry is officially a native son. The things he did at Davidson College were spectacular, and he was the engine that made them go. All you have to do is look at the Wildcats’ record this season to see it  (10-11, 5-4 in the Southern Conference). He has become a pro with some potential, especially in Don Nelson’s helter skelter smallball system. Curry is averaging 14.4 points, 4.6 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.9 steals. The problem in Golden State is Nelson himself. Everyone seems to have beef with him on his squad. Andris Biedeins doesn’t want help with his free throw shooting (the dude is shooting 6 percent from the line. SIX percent). Corey Maggette hates him. Monta Ellis is pissed at him. And of course, Stephen Jackson got out of Dodge after he refused to go back into a game.

This is a team that doesn’t play a lick of defense. Only Biederins is effective on the defensive end. Maggette has always had the ability, but never the will. And Ellis and Curry are slight for their positions. It will be a challenge for them to keep the relatively burly Raymond Felton and Flip Murray out off the lane.

This is one of the prime opportunities to get another win on the road.

    It’s a shame what’s happened to that Golden State franchise in such a short time. They have one of the best fanbases in the NBA and yet I’m watching the game right now and the crowd couldn’t be more apathetic.

    I wouldn’t want to be a Warriors fan at all, but I have to admit if you’re a fan of a team that’s playing the Warriors you’re always happy b/c you know you’re going to be in for an entertaining (aka defense-deficient) game.

      I have to agree with you. They looked like a team on the rise, not necessarily a contender, but one that would at least be fun to watch and be able to compete. Now, they don’t really compete, everyone is unhappy, and they score 110 points a game. I wouldn’t mind having Rony Turiaf on our side, though….
