The best person for Lee's job

06:53 AM ET 04.23 | Jarrett Jack, not long after learning about the significant loss to their lineup, made an astute observation about Harrison Barnes -- who was putting on a dribbling exhibition at the time. If Barnes felt any pressure, his Pepsi Center-filling smile and distinctive laugh didn't give it away. "I think he's built for this," Jack said. "I think Harrison is the best guy for us with his size and athleticism and ability on the perimeter. I think he's the person for the job." A day ahead of Game 2 in their first-round series against Denver, Warriors head coach Mark Jackson continued to play coy about how he plans to replace power forward David Lee, who was lost for the postseason with a torn right hip flexor.

If Bogut is able to pick up the slack, the Warriors have a chance. Otherwise, the lack of a dominant big man will be their downfall in this series.

Bogus won't do jack. Your're team will be one and done monsieur.

Fail. It's a fact that Bogus is overrated and that the Warriors will be one and done.

Tough luck for Warriors. I rather see a team go down playing full strength. Makes for fun basketball, and a sense of competition for the players. Lee, for all the knock he gets mostly from Knick fans, has played out of his teeth this year. Really sad to see him get hurt. And Curry has performed above expectations. I personally thought he would be hurt most of the season again, but kudos to him for braking Ray Ray's record.
And also a word of appreciation for mark jackson. Not many coaches have turned things around just in their 2nd season (see Cavs, Portland etc etc). For one, I'l glad I don't have to hear him as a commentator LOL.
