I have been blowing chunks for much of the day. Something I ate, I am assuming … hold up … Ron Artest just banged on Ronny Turiaf. Wow. That was nasty. He came down the middle and threw it down with one hand. Turiaf was late with the help, but on time enough to get posterized.
Anyway. I some kind of blackened fish and I think there’s now a little alien growing inside of me. I said that to say I am half-here, half waiting for my next trip to the porcelain throne. So bear with me …
*Turiaf started and not Brandan Wright or Kelenna Azubuike. Ronny is guarding Yao and Biedrins is guarding Scola. Count me among the fans of the big lineup. The Warriors are best with Maggette at small forward. I say go small when you are getting a third guard like Monta Ellis in the lineup, not if Azubuike or Watson is the third guard.
* Jackson is being guarded by Ron Artest. Why are they isolating Jax? Is that not begging for a turnover?
* See that SI piece about how the Warriors are already regretting Maggette? More surprising to me was Kevin Garnett’s alleged comments. Normally the players stick together. The animosity ends as soon as the final horn sounds. For KG to get at Maggs like that, if he did, is shocking to me. That sounds like he doesn’t like the guy.
