At new head coach Mark Jacksons introductory press conference at the NBA Finals, a reporter asked if the Warriors would try and get bigger. Instead of citing Andris Biedrins, David Lee, and Ekpe Udoh, Jackson instead made a bizarre comment about how you can look at the Mavericks and see you dont see size, referencing Tyson Chandler and Shawn Marion.

Getting past the fact that Tyson Chandler is as long as the day is, the approach was interesting and lead you to believe that the Warriors knew they needed to go in another direction down low, if only to pair a true center with Lee.

With the amount of money Biedrins makes (hes owed another 27 million over three years), its natural that the Latvian who has slid backwards with bigger responsibilities since showing promise with the We Believe team of the late 2000s would be the one to go.
