I bet Dwight Howard and Venus Williams never have to deal with flight delays

Will Chris Cohan pull a Sarah Palin?

The rumors are getting louder that Chris Cohan wants to sell the Warriors. Wait, before you pop the champagne and light off those M-80’s you forgot to use on the

Everything sucks!

Great Giants game today, a sweet 7-0 loss to Chris Volstad, some 6’8″ oaf I dropped from my fantasy team a month ago. It’s always nice to know that baseball

NBA Tuesday: BASG off-season power poll

If the start of this NBA off-season has shown us anything, it’s that the split between the elite teams and the schedule-fillers is swelling. Actually, the NBA is on the

Hey Warrior fans, at least you don’t root for Memphis

It’s almost as if Chris Wallace is playing an elaborate prank on Grizzly fans. Unfortunately for basketball fans in Tennessee who would like an occasional reprieve from all the ridiculous

NBA Tuesday: Maggette’s concussions have to worry Warriors

I noticed that Corey Maggette underwent what was termed as “minor surgery” on Monday, trying to alleviate the pain that plagued his right wrist for a good part of last

Nate Schierholtz: My Giant

I guess I’m a member of the media now, albeit not in the traditional sense. I don’t have locker room access, and I don’t spend my afternoons arguing inarguable points

Don Nelson: Curry’s the next Steve Nash

The negotiations in the Amare Stoudemire trade have gone public, and who better than Don Nelson to throw some nice daggers. Check out this doozy, courtesy of Marcus Thompson II’s

Amare Stoudemire will “be a Warriors”

OK, I’m not really sure if Monta Ellis’ infamous “I’m a Warriors. I’ll always be a Warriors.” quote will also ring true for Amare Stoudemire. But let’s say I’d be

Everyone really trusts Larry Riley…What am I missing here?

I don’t know why I like mock drafts so much. Their usefulness and/or accuracy usually get squashed by the time the draft starts, if not before. Especially in the NBA,
