But the taste of that last season's exit is hardly washed from the mouth when they struggle to beat a Stephen Jackson-less and winless Golden State. Had they lost that game last night, I can tell you I'd be clamoring right now for them to trade everyone on this team for Kobe, who fears nothing and no one. As it is they won, and get a reprieve. But one close victory doesn't do it; nothing less than a full-on humiliation of Golden State in one or maybe even two games will prove that this team has gotten over the mental block they have against the Warriors.
