To cheer us up, the Warriors sign a flawed combo guard

Happy Larry Ellison Day!

If the rumors are to be believed, and there’s no reason besides outright cynicism not to, the Warriors’ new owner will be … (drumroll) … Larry Ellison! It’s impossible to

10-Day roundup: Is Posey starting yet?

Well, I’m back from a week in Kauai, and man am I glad to be back in San Francisco. Does that sound believable? Because it’s a complete lie. Fog, street-poop

5 things the Warriors can do while they’re in limbo

Monday Roundup: a great weekend to go outside

In the age of instant information and access, it’s curious that all we seem to want to do is reassert that something we already knew is true. I blame Dennis

Udoh? More like Who-doh! Get it?

Seeing as I’ve been calling Ekpe Udoh a “poor man’s Serge Ibaka” for a week now, I can’t say the Warriors totally whiffed yesterday. Golden State doesn’t have one guy

Cohan moving sale! Get your Monta and Biedrins for cheap!

The Warriors are like a single guy in his mid-20’s who’s getting ready to move abroad. Six months out, he knows he can’t take his TV, bed, sofa, coffee table,

Giants shuffle the dreck

Don’t get it twisted, my last post wasn’t a call for the Giants to pick up Pat Burrell. He can’t field, he’s already made his money for the season and

The local media scene — it’s changing

Everybody’s on the Internet. Everyone wants a piece of the pie. Nobody knows how the future is going to unfold, or how anybody’s going to make any money off the

Giants winning in spite of Sabean’s fear of speed

Until last night’s exercise in catharsis against the vaunted San Diego Padres, people wracked their brains. How could the Giants lose and lose against San Diego? Not just this year,

NBA Tuesday: Should the Lakers sit Bynum?

NBA Tuesday used to be a regular feature around these parts, and then I finally got a job after a year of freelancing and unemployment checks, and my over-ambitious power-rankings-and-other-NBA-stuff
