I just attended the Draymond Green Contract Extension Press Conference, which overall was pretty uneventful. The Warriors are doing a basketball camp, so there was a large group of kids off to the side watching and a couple of them got to ask questions (which weren’t bad). Green said he’d play for free, which led […]
The Golden State Warriors won the NBA Championship. They were gonna be championship, and now they are championship. Championship. And after a championship, everything players and coaches do is either fun, cute, hilarious, poignant or just plain awesome/dope/lit/rad/sweet/killer/fire. Go with whatever word you like best, we’re all sitting at the same table of friendship and […]
I’m posting this from a plane! I know no one cares about media travel, especially media travel complaints, but I missed a flight today. Mostly it was due to my own stupidity. I figured I had enough time to post an amazing Leandro Barbosa (“We … are … championship”) video before hitting the road, but […]
It was a spur-of-the-moment decision to fly across the country, but here I am in a hotel room 15 minutes away from Cleveland, getting ready to attend Game 6. After going on YSTL last night and listening to how confident everyone — including Ramon, the friendly parking attendant in CSN Bay Area’s garage — seemed about […]
LeBron James out-scored, out-rebounded and out-assisted everyone else on the floor. Sure, he only made 31.4% of his shots, but he was positively brilliant compared to the NBA MVP in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. Stephen Curry made 5-of-23 (21.7%). He was 2-of-15 (13.3%) on threes. He turned it over six times. He couldn’t corral […]
Steve Kerr’s comments last night weren’t all that different from what we hear from coaches and players all the time, but the way he insisted that he was being sincere was striking. Yeah, it’s something I hate to see. I never like to see anybody get injured on either team. I want everybody healthy. And […]
It was a game that could’ve gone five more overtimes and no one would’ve minded, but the Warriors outscored the Cavaliers 10-2 in the extra session to win 108-100 and take a 1-0 lead in the 2015 NBA Finals. Check that — a few players on Cleveland probably would’ve minded if they had to play an extra […]
Things couldn’t be going any better for the Warriors. Really, it’s pretty ridiculous. Not only did they get tested in the nicest way possible in their first round matchup — they emerged with all of their key players relatively healthy after a series sweep that ended with a clear statement of Golden State’s dominance — but the […]
Even without LeBron James on the floor, this was an interesting matchup because two men were present who many thought should’ve been a part of the 2014-15 Golden State Warriors. Mark Jackson called the game for ESPN, and Kevin Love started for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Besides maybe Joe Lacob, Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut (more […]
OK, so I don’t have any confirmation, but I’m about 98% sure I saw Dave Chappelle at around 6:15 yesterday evening. I...
One of the main cliches of the past couple decades has been that 80% of NBA players are stoners. Could be true....
