The Warriors are in Baron Davis country tonight to take on their biggest rivals, and we’re guessing Stephen Jackson won’t be staying at Baron’s house this time around.
In T.J. Simers’ seething story in Saturday’s L.A. Times where he called Baron a “dog” and Ricky Davis a “druggie,” Simers writes that Baron called Jackson “crazy” and “someone who makes up things.”
Sure Baron, we believe you. You would NEVER have said you wanted to come back to the Warriors. Who wouldn’t want to go from being widely thought of as a top-five point guard to a guy who should be sitting in favor of Mardy Collins?
Tonight is Baron’s last chance this season to prove he still cares. The Clippers surely feel like Baron would rather be back up north with Stack and the boys, based both on rumors and the play of their Jenny Craig-sponsored supposed leader. If he puts in another uninspired performance tonight or leaves due to any sort of injury short of decapitation, the Clippers and their fans might present Baron with his own personal dog collar.
Looks like somebody has a case of the Monta’s
–It’s official, Monta’s ankle is stiff and he’ll be out one-to-two weeks. Call me a pessimist, but I’d be shocked if he weren’t out longer. (48minutes.net)
–Here’s a live blog from the Warriors/Thunder game we attended on Saturday, which among other things includes the observation that Anthony (or as I call him, Tony) Randolph looks like a bigger Monta Ellis, only more colicky. (Free Darko)
–Josh Phelps hopes for a Rich Aurilia injury chance make the Giants’ opening day roster, and Fred Lewis is wearing out the starters in BP. (Mercury News)
–Just a ton of stuff in this post by Matt Maiocco, here are some highlights: Bryant Johnson and DeShaun Foster won’t be with Niners next season, and Maiocco wouldn’t mind seeing the Niners take Rey Maualuga with the tenth pick in the draft in part because he loved covering Maualuga’s high school coach, Eureka High’s Jack Lakin.

–The Celtics just signed Mikki Moore, who Tom Ziller thinks is “Mark Blount bad.” (Celticsblog)
–It’s official, I fully jinxed myself with my Oscars post a few days ago. Not only did I finish one correct Oscar pick behind SGL, I finished three behind her mom. A truly mediocre effort, puncutated by a moronic selection of Mickey Rourke over Sean Penn. The Academy was going to deny the chance to make the show about Prop 8 simply because Penn won the Oscar four years ago? What was I thinking??? (SF Gate)
