Baron Davis, Meet Deron Williams (Utah 116, Golden State 112)

In easily the best game of the NBA Playoffs so far, the Utah Jazz buckled down, boarded it up, and defeated the Warriors in Game 1. It was one of those awesome throwbacks to the old 80s NBA, with great defense, great offense, great performances, and it could’ve gone either way. But the +17 differential […]

Believe: Golden State 111, Dallas 86

There aren’t many words we need to describe this good ol’ fashioned ass whopping the Warriors just handed the 67-15 Mavericks. Baron Davis turning in a Willis Reed-type performance with his injured hamstring (and still looking more energetic than any of the Mavericks), Stephen Jackson shooting out of his damned mind, Jason Richardson nailing daggers […]

Alright Dallas, Now It’s So On

Oh my God. We thought our first Warriors post would be enough to motivate the crowd to show up tonight, but no, Dallas fans had to raise the stakes. Well, they are raised my friends, they are fucking raised. [youtube yrK6aLA1HgA] Ok, Warriors fans. Can you now imagine if the Mavs come back and win […]

So It Comes Down to This

Perhaps the biggest event in Warriors history goes down tonight in Oracle Arena (I’d count the time Rick Barry won the NBA Finals, but no one remembers that series). Now that the series is at 3-2 and in Oakland, the Warriors essentially control their own fate. They’re 48 minutes away from history…or from a return […]

And Mark Cuban Still Breathes

You know, if someone asked us who could come back from a 21 point deficit, we’d probably say the Phoenix Suns. If someone asked us who could blow a 9 point lead with about three and a half minutes left, we would probably say a Rick Adelman-coached team (trust us, we have plenty of experience […]

Unluckiest Pass in the World

We wonder why God seems to outright despise the MacArthur Maze. 18 years after heavy seismic retrofits from Loma Prieta, his Almighty decides that outright tanker fire is what’s needed to do the job. Huge leaping flames from an exploding gasoline tanker melted the steel underbelly of a highway overpass in the East Bay’s MacArthur […]

The Way of A Warrior

We try to avoid hyperbole around these parts, but man, last night’s game was incredible. Even sitting in the back back row of the arena, the excitement in the stadium is too difficult to describe. We wish we could send you that picture of the Indian dude Bhangra-ing up in the 4th row, but I […]

This Could Be A Very Painful or Unbelievable or Painfully Unbelievable 48 Minutes

We’re skipping Telebears today (seriously, who does their schedule on Friday night? Go outside!), so normally I’d fill the dead air time with something like hamster eating broccoli and wiggling uncontrollably. But your esteemed editor is going to Game 3 of Mavs-Warriors tonight. I haven’t been to a basketball game in 12 years (it was […]
