With the Warriors sliding faster than firemen down poles, Vladimir Radmanovic told the media about their team's lack of preparation in practice, specifically targettng particular players (I wonder who...):â†µ
"I understand that there are a few guys who are playing a lot of minutes, and it's hard for them to come to practice and stay motivated," Radmanovic said. "At the same time, those are the guys who are carrying this team, and we're all depending on their success to win games."â†µ
Veterans got to step up and Radmanovic, one of the most hated Warriors for his wild turnovers and poor shooting, is telling it like it is. Or is he? Monta Ellis, reportedly, addressed Radmanovic's statement with "Forget it." It's a little ironic that Radmanovic is saying this given his problems with shooting and decision-making at crucial junctures in the game. But are the good times over in Golden State? Are we back to the Warriors team of players who can't wait to get out?â†µ
David Lee seems to be the only guy that is still out there hugging his teammates and motivating them individually within the game. Once he stops doing that, you know the Warriors have got huge problems on their hands again.
