B. Diddy Wants Back In?

According to Stephen Jackson, who spent Saturday with his friend Baron Davis, the former Warriors guard wouldn’t mind being traded back to Golden State. Jackson has already launched the campaign to get Davis back to Oakland.
“That’s all we talked about,” Jackson said. “I went to his house, spent some time with his mom and his grandmother. He wants to come back. And if he wants to come back, I want him back.”
Obviously, things haven’t gone well in Los Angeles. The Clippers are 8-21 after getting smoked by Dallas at home on Sunday afternoon. But Davis has said all along he didn’t want to leave. Get this: Clippers owner Donald Sterling is a huge fan of Corey Maggette and didn’t want him to go. Maggette plus one could get the deal done. Jackson’s already started lobbying.
“I think that would be great for us,” Jackson said. “Coach loves him. Him and (guard) Monta (Ellis) have good chemistry. If they could work that out, that would be great for the organization.”
So, would you want Baron Davis back? For who? Let’s hear it …

Marcus Thompson

    What fan wouldn’t want Baron back?? Stop the politics and do what’s best for the franchise. BRING BARON BACK!

    Bring Baron back-and if Monta is still a month away like Nelson has said our season is over.

    I WANT BARON BACK BUT THINK ABOUT IT THATS A BAD TRADE COREY MAGGETTE AND PROABLY JAMAL CRAWFORD FOR BARON C’MON. SURE THOSE TWO ARE BOTH UNCONSISTENT BUT WE HAV A GREAT BACK COURT MONTA,COREY,STEPHEN,AND JAMAL AND IF WE TRADE THOSE TWO FOR BARON ITS GOING TO BE LIKE LAST YEARS TEAM. ALSO WITH NOT AS GOOD OF BENCH WE HAD LAST YEAR. ITS JUST OUR MANAGEMENT THATS JACKED UP, CHRIS MULLIN DID HIS PART WITH THE TEAM AND ROBERT ROWELL HASN’T. WE WOULDN’T BE GOING THROUGH ALL THIS IF WE WOULD’VE JUS GAVE BARON A DAMN CONTRACT EXTENSION AND BEEN NICE PEOPLE TO BARON BUT NOW WERE CONFUSED AND DON’T KNOW WHO WE ARE. THOSE ARE THE BAD THINGS ABOUT THIS . BUT THE GOOD THING ABOUT THIS IS WE GET LEADERSHIP AND THE MISSING PIECE TO OUR MESSED UP PUZZLE. AND IF THE OWNER OF THE CLIPPERS REALLY IS A FAN OF MAGGETTE THEN JUST TRADE FOR MAGGETTE NOT JAMAL TO. IF THEY GET JAMAL AND COREY THE CLIPPERS COULD ACTUALLY GET IN THE PLAYOFFS. IT WOULD BE COREY, JAMAL,ZACH RANDOLPH WHO HIM AND JAMAL USED TO PLAY WITH EACHOTHER,MARCUS CAMBY,AND PROLLY RICKY DAVIS. THAT’S ONE HELL OF A TEAM RIGHT THERE AND IF THE WARRIORS GET BARON IT WOULD BE BARON,MONTA,STEPHEN,ANDRIS AND AT PF ? RONNY TURIAF? NO HES NOT A GREAT SCORER AT ALL, GOOD ON THE DEFENSIVE END BUT NOT OFFENSE. THATS WHERE I THINK WE SHOULD’VE TRADED AL HARRINGTON FOR ZACH RANDOLPH THEN THE WARRIORS WULD BE SO MUCH BETTER THEN THEY ARE NOW, THEY WOULD GET REBOUNDS MORE IF THEY WOULD’VE GOT ZACH RANDOLPH AND 2 GOOD POST SCORERS BUT NO WE GOT SMALLER AND THAT’S WHERE MANAGEMENT FALLS INTO. MISSED OPPURTUNITIES. PERSONALLY IF I WAS CHRIS MULLIN I WOULD’VE TRIED MY HARDEST TO GET ZACH INSTEAD OF JAMAL!
    WELL THATS ALL I HAVE TO SAY AND HOPEFULLY WE COULD TURN IT AROUND. GO WARRIORS!!!

    Mr B.
    You really think the W’s got a real chance for the playoffs still? After watching the past two games, I don’t think so. Losing to OKC then tonight against Minnesota?
    If we did by a longshot made the playoffs as the last spot, don’t think we can pull another miracle.

    Im not here to rip anyone, except talking stink about that idiot coach of ours. You see the look of our guys tonight? LOSERS!! I really feel for them. Nellie is NO leader and neither is Jax. It was really apparent in tonights loss. No high fives nothing!

    I guess AR is in the doghouse again. Nellie won’t play him. He started Kurz over him, although Kurz did not do that bad. W’s shot decent in the first half than stunk during the second half in shooting. Which means as we all know no shooting another LOSS.
    Could of been worst for AR if Nellie would have put him in with less than a minute in a loss cause game tonight.

    Nellie settled with Cuban got his extension with the W’s. and now is set. He really looks like a coach that doesn’t give a shit about this team. We as fans pay to watch his horrible street ball coaching is a slap in all W fans face.

    Maui is more on his mind than winning thats for sure.

  • Mr. B

    NotaNelsonFan,

    One night I feel like we have a chance but the light keeps getting dimmer each game they play. I am a hopeful Warrior fan and believe any day now the team will turnaround.

    Its all too hard to swallow that just last year we did pretty well and almost made the playoffs again.

    I don’t know about Nellie just kickin back and collecting his paycheck. I have to believe that the seasoned man has some pride left in him.

    You maybe right. We’ll see.

  • The Seer

    Remember fans who makes the decisions on this dysfunctional mess, Bobby Rowell, the suit who’s ego is bigger than the team and therefore we are screwed until Cohan wakes up and gets rid of this egomanical stooge, Rowell..

    Baron will not be back!!!

  • GSW

    i want it to happen

  • Le

    Charllote wants Randolph or Wright for Felton?

  • Robert Rowell

    Nothing here. On to NFL playoffs.

  • OptimisPrime

    Stephen Jackson needs to be carful not to alienate Magette and his team for a very slim chance of getting Baron back.

    Sounds like an unnecessary distraction for two struggling teams that have enough issues to worry about.

  • Rick Kamla

    Who the hell is Raymond Felton for us to give up Brandan Wright (the guy they were willing to pass on to take Richardson in 2007-2008) and Anthony Randolph?

    I think Charlotte is in even more of a desperate situation than we are. They don’t even know what they want.

    They trade their first round pick (Brandan Wright) to Golden State in 2007-2008 for Jason Richardson.

    Then turn right around and trade Richardson 1 year later after hiring the greedy, disloyal bastard Larry Brown.

    Now Brown has ousted Richardson and blacklisted Felton and Sean May ( I understand he’s out of shape).

    But the point is, don’t get involved with a deal with Charlotte. Charlotte is probably gonna fold their tents as an NBA franchise, they don’t know what their doing.

    A trade with Charlotte would be like the “blind leading the blind.”

    2 garbage, loser organizations trying to make a deal……absolutely pathetic!

  • Rick Kamla

    Wow……..look at all the lucky fans throughout the league enjoying the ascension of their young teams while our team can’t even get out of their own way.

    Here is the list of “up and coming” teams that I was hoping we would be on this year, but the way it seems is that we will never be on this list:

    1. Portland – I was the first to downplay their “potential.” This teams is all about Brandon Roy and LaMArcus Aldridge. Greg Oden is slow, immobile and has absolutely no post moves, he is like Erick Dampier, but the team is doing better than I predicted.

    2. Orlando – Big 50 win season last year and continuing to grow with good coaching and good talent

    3. Denver – After getting Billups, didn’t predict the quick turn around

    4. Memphis – Has won some big games this year including 2 wins against our squad,who would you rather have …………….Gay, Warrick, Gasol, Mayo………or Wright, Ellis, Biedrins and Randolph?

    I thought we would have been on this list as well.

    I don’t want to complain and harp on negative issues, I think the talent is there and we could have success in the future, but as of yet, we have NOT found the formula for developing this young team.

  • NotaNelsonfan

    No defense no wins. Oh well….. You gotta love Nellie. He says “I am no longer in charge of defense, I leave that up to Keith Smart and the other assistant.

    What a frickin cop out remark. He ain’t got shit of a offense game plan to begin with. None, none at all!
    And now wants to pass the defense schemes to the assitants? Really earnin your pay Nellie, way to go.

    Gotta agree with #105.

  • big dog

    Give Marcus Williams some play time!!1Nellie you are a busta!!!!!!!!!! Stop hatin on the youngsta!!!!!!!

  • danikil49

    Notanelsonfan has it right. Did you see Nelson put Wright back in the game against the T’wolves with 20 seconds remaining in the game.The whole fourth quarter and most of the third we were getting out rebounded and and how did Nellie react, he brought in CJ to replace Bellinelli. Randolph ,Kurz and Wright stayed on the bench while Nellie played small ball(loser ball) B. Diddy or not the quicker Nellie moves upstairs the better. And if anyone was watching the game last night you saw the W’s play much better without S. Jackson. This is no fluke. Jackson gums up the offense with his constant bickering with the refs because he held the ball too long and got his shot blocked. This is getting old.

  • Road Games are Killing Us!

    Nellie moves upstairs?…….what happened last time he was GM for the Golden State Warriors:

    He fueded with ownership and pushed for the movements of Chris Webber and Tyrone Hill, both became All-Stars after leaving.

    Point is, I think the further Nelson is from the organization, be it coaching or GM, the better.

    He is not cut out to make personnel decisions.

    I agree about Jackson’s touches on offense hindering the offense. Because he demands the ball, he is our “go to guy.” While other teams have “go to guys” like Yao Ming and Kobe Bryant, we have Stephen Jackson (lucky us, huh?) He is the guy we turn to when we need a basket,….right? This hurts our offense because he is simply too much of a part of our offense. This guy was a veteran role player in San Antonio and the 3rs scoring option in Indiana behind Jermaine O’ Neal and Harrington.

    Now all of a sudden he is a no. 1 option…….I mean it just don’t make sense. But when Monta gets back, Jackson will definitely be a no. 2 option. He is perfect as a 3rd option, that’s why it would be nice if any 2 combinations of the following players each score 20ppg: Ellis, Maggette, Azabuike or Belinelli, leaving Stephen Jackson as your 3rd option, maybe even giving him a couple games off or spot duty off the bench and start a young player.

    All I will say is that I would love for Baron to return to the Warriors. But I would like him to play the helpful way, that is as a true point guard. Pass the ball, help the young players and play DEFENSE. I know he can play DEFENSE when he wants to, and he can impose his will on the rest of the team..Thats the good Baron, the bad Baron is the guy that jacks up 3′s all over the court, doesn’t pass the ball or play defense. So which player comes back is important, the good Baron is great for the team and the city and the league.. PS..I hope it happens, he is the missing link to the team growing for the future..Good Luck..I LOVE THE TEAM AND I HOPE IT WORKS OUT…………….
