Well, Pacer fans weren't the only one's who felt the Warrior fans' treatment of Mike Dunleavy came off petty. Peter Vecsey used some of his column today to "e-vecsey-rate" Dubs' fans, Bay Area media, and Don Nelson for laying so much of the blame for the Warriors' past failures on Dun.
Evidently they hold it against Dunleavy he failed to measure up (11 point average, 43 FG percent, 4.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists) to being picked third overall in 2002 during his 4½ seasons with Golden State. In the minds of these geniuses, that's Dunleavy's fault.
Not Chris Mullin, the executive VP of basketball operations responsible for the selection.
Not Mike Montgomery, the college coach Mullin (more likely owner Christopher Cohan) chose, who was over his head in the pros and got the quick yank.
Certainly not the legendary Don Nelson! At the start of last season, the mad scientist deployed Dunleavy, a natural off-guard/small forward who can shoot, handle and pass, at power forward.
