Do you want to play in
the NBA? Call Nellie

CHAD A. SAFRAN
Safrancisco Treat

A re you an NBA veteran in
need of a job? How about an
undrafted rookie looking to
continue your basketball career?
There may be a job for you in
Oakland, California.
Dial (510) 638-6300 and ask for
Don Nelson, General Manager and
Head Coach of the Golden State
Warriors.
Tell Nelson you are a 6-foot-6
forward/guard who can shoot.
Perhaps you can play the point and
average 10 assists a game. Can you
come off the bench, providing instant
offense and rugged defense?
Tell Nellie you are a 6-foot-10
power forward/center who can grab a
rebound on both ends of the floor.
His response will be, "Come on
down the door is open. But before
you book your flight, I have a couple
of questions. Are you healthy? Have
you ever had a history of knee
injuries? What kind of medical plan

do you have?"
While all this may seem far-
fetched, it is not that far removed
from the situation at the Oakland
Coliseum. The Warriors, a preseason
contender for the Western Conference
crown, have been bitten by a blood-
sucking injury bug that cannot feast
enough on its prey.
Last season, the Warriors' big
four - Chris Mullin, Tim Hardaway,
Billy Owens and Sarunas
Marciulionis - played less than three
minutes together. This year, they
won't play at all together.
Mullin reinjured the same hand
that ended his 1992-93 campaign in
an exhibition game last week.
Hardaway, the team's point guard,
blew out his knee during preseason
camp. Marciulionis wrecked his
anterior cruciate just preparing for
training camp.
At least Owens is healthy. For this
week.

And now, Nelson's rookie prize,
Chris Webber has a sprained ankle
leaving him on crutches. Although
Webber insists he will play, his debut
Friday appears doubtful.
The Warriors have tried to sign
free agents to replace their stars.
Veteran guard Avery Johnson,
who helped the Spurs to a playoff
spot last season, will hold down
Hardaway's spot for this campaign.
Johnson is a solid backup, but he's
not going to replace the man with the
"UTEP two-step."
Nelson signed NBA retread
Gerald Glass, formerly of Minnesota
and Detroit, earlier this week. Glass,
never one to skip the Sizzler's all-
you-can eat buffet, really impressed
Nelson with his physical conditioning
and his outside shooting.
Nelson's reaction to Glass'
workout, "Next!" as Glass was sent
packing the following day.
So the Warriors have a starting

lineup of Johnson, Latrell Sprewell,
Owens, Victor Alexander and anyone
else for the first couple of games.
That is about as frightening as
"The Little Mermaid." I'm sure
Nelson would take Ariel, the mer-
maid, if she could shoot from the
outside and run the break.
Is there anyone out there who
could help the Warriors?
Perhaps Nelson will relive his
glory days as a member of the Celtics
and suit up as player/coach. He was
one of the best sixth men of his time.
He may be over 50 and a little slow
but is in shape and has great medical
insurance.
Even if you have no college or
NBA experience, sharpen your
resume. Tell Nelson of your glory
days in high school or how you
dominated intramural games years
ago.
Just a warning though. You will
have to be patient when calling the
Warriors' offices, the phone line is
going to be busy.

somewhat complex formation that
can be hard to learn and execute
effectively.
. Michigan recently returned to
a 4-3-3, a more common forma-
tion that many on the team played
in high school. It allows the
defensemen to become more in-
volved in the attack and proved to
be successful in recent games.
