Nominee for longest thread title of the year?

Got this little nugget from a new GSW (stat-oriented) blog (http://www.goldenstateworriers.com/)

The teams rebounding differential (-9.8), if sustained over the full year would be the worst rebounding margin in league history. The current record-holder? Don Nelson's 1989-90 Warriors.

Talk about coming full circle, come back to the same team and repeat the same mistakes/success?

But Nelson is so close to being the all time wins leader!
He has to stay.

They have been without one of the NBA's best rebounders in Andris Biedrins for almost the whole season and without one of the teams best rebounders in Ronny Turiaf for almost the whole season.

True but still kind of lets you know how padded Biedrins #'s are, hes not just playing on a bad rebounding team, hes playing on a team capable of being the absolute worst rebounding team of all time.

Biedrins has been out for pretty much the entire season, thus far. He's a very good rebounder. However, even with him they're still a bad rebounding team. Anthony Randolph, who's probably their second best rebounder gets limited minutes. You got Maggette playing the four and Mikki MOore and Vlad Rad as your bigs. Thats pretty sad.

Wow. Kinda makes you wonder when that franchise is going to grow a pair and hire a new coach.
