It's a great time out...at the bank

Barely beating the signing deadline, the Golden State Warriors locked up their two young stars Jason Richardson and Troy Murphy for the next seven seasons. (Both players got six-year extensions, having already been signed for the NBA season beginning tonight.)

It's the right move, I think. Both J-Rich and T-Murph have demonstrated significant skills growth over the past couple of years, Murphy despite an injury-riddled campaign last year. GM Chris Mullin knows he needs to develop a nucleus around which to build into the future, and I concur with his judgment that two-guard Richardson and power forward Murphy constitute a solid nucleus, along with small forward Mike Dunleavy, point guard Speedy Claxton, and recently re-signed center Adonal Foyle.

Just don't forget, J-Rich, that every now and again in the Association, you have to D up.
