I keep the level of discourse high on this blog. So, I’m taking a chance here — for a reason. Two photos of a man who appears to be Andris Biedrins have gone viral on the net. They are X-rated photos. I will not describe them and I will not tell you how to access them. That’s not my job.

My job is to draw a conclusion. If this man really is Biedrins — he’s sure a dead ringer — he is doing something compromising. The Warriors should sanction him or at least criticize him. But they can’t. Why can’t they? Because their coach Mark Jackson apparently sent some pretty compromising pictures of himself to a woman with whom he conducted an extramarital relationship.

The Warriors have not sanctioned Jackson and that means they cannot sanction Biedrins or anyone else on the team who conducts this kind of behavior with or without the photos.

In other words, on issues like this the Warriors have forfeited their moral standing.
