Jackson has been coy about how he'll replace Lee in the starting lineup and overall, but I've got to believe the Warriors are leaning towards going small (with Harrison Barnes moving to the 4 and Jarrett Jack into the starting lineup) for most of the game, whether that's to start the game or not. It's just the best way to get his better, faster players on the floor at the same time, and then Jackson can pinpoint when he wants to get Carl Landry in for some post scoring... and I'd think Jackson will have a quick trigger on Landry and Bogut playing together, since they don't seem like a real fit and they didn't play much in tandem this season.

Carl Landry posted up Mike Dunleavy twice Saturday night and couldn't back him down. Dunleavy told me his secret afterward: "I played with Cliff Robinson, one of the best post defenders ever, my first couple of years in the league. Skinny as I was, I was getting posted up all the time by pretty much everyone. One day after practice he showed me a few techniques and ever since, it's been a little better." He added, somewhat jokingly, "You get over 30 years you get some old-man strength, too." Both Landry and Dunleavy are listed as 6'9", but Landry is 248 pounds while Dunleavy is 220. Watching Dunleavy work, Robinson taught him about leverage -- keeping his upper body straight up, but utilizing his legs at an angle, like tipping a chair against a door. Sulia

Golden State Warriors forward Carl Landry presented $10,000 worth of donations in boxing, fitness and recreation equipment Thursday to the East Oakland Boxing Association, which was burglarized on several occasions last year. Landry helped distribute equipment provided by Good Sports, including exercise benches, boxing gloves, protective head and groin gear and chin-up bars. The East Oakland Boxing Association is a nonprofit that has served Oakland residents ages 5 to 20 since 1987. It provides free after-school and summer programs that include physical activities like boxing along with mentoring and tutoring for academics, art, gardening and leadership development.

Landry's low-post game wasn't the only reason Golden State wanted him. Sure, the jumper-loving Warriors needed his bankable skill. But Landry also possesses an intangible general manager Bob Myers wanted. The Warriors needed a guy who got his front teeth knocked out with an elbow (in December at Dallas) and missed one game, a guy who got shot in the calf (in an incident after a car accident in Houston in March 2009) and was back in the lineup 21 days later. So Myers flew Landry to Las Vegas during the summer league to express his interest in him. Landry ended up signing a two-year, $8 million deal in August (with a player option for the next season). "You can say you're tough, but not a lot of people have stories like that to back it up," Myers said. "That guy's tough. He's so tough, he doesn't have to say it. Everybody just knows it."
