Diogu's Debut

Diogu's debut receives plenty of attention from
Warriors rookie forward Ike Diogu made a boxer's entrance into Wednesday's game against San Antonio, his NBA debut. Warriors Coach Mike Montgomery gave him a shot, the crowd gave him an ovation, and the Oakland Arena announcer gave him an extra-special introduction.
The Diogu era -- postponed for 12 games because of a broken left hand sustained in the last practice of training camp -- officially began Wednesday with 3:52 left in the first quarter. Diogu, the No. 9 overall pick in the NBA draft, is expected to be the low-post savior for the Warriors. Fans might have to wait awhile before Diogu is unleashed. Montgomery said he wouldn't be able to throw his rookie into the fire right off.

Diogu has to be something inside for the Warriors. That will open things up for the outside shooters and drivers so much more and make it so much easier.

The run and gun is something that te Warriors need to get back to doing becasue they are in real need of it. They just have not been right on offense
