Golden State Warriors for Dummies

A Quick History Lesson About the NBA’s Best Team I am never surprised by the people I meet or the things I see while using Bay Area Rapid Transit. On my way to Oracle for a recent game, I hopped on BART and had this cross-generational exchange with a 17-year-old Warriors fan holding the handrail next to me. Kid: “Nice jersey.” Me: “I’m sorry – what’s that?” Kid: “That’s a dope Draymond Green retro.” Me: “Oh ...

Harrison Barnes Should Stop Giving A Shit

  Steph Curry don’t give a shit. Draymond Green really don’t give a shit. Klay Thompson don’t give two shits. Harrison Barnes? He gives too many shits. Basketball players have to not give a shit to reach their potential. This is a scientific fact. I know because it happened to me. And anything that happens to me is a universal truth for all. Or so I believe. See, growing up I was a really good basketba ...

The Time Kevin Grigg Stole the Show from Donyell and Thunder

With the big gap in games before the NBA Finals, I got bored and tweeted out an old story from my days working in the NBA. Here it is in full form, still broken into 140 characters. Helping offset low pay and long hours of entry-level NBA life was the full access to basketball courts and random games with players.

A Last Look at the Jackson Era Before Moving On

Things were supposed to be changin’, but instead something strange done happened in the Bay Area over the last three years. Before we move on to the Steve Kerr era, it seems necessary to take one last quick look at Mark Jackson’s tenure with the Warriors. Like just about every Warriors fan, I was initially excited by Jackson’s hire in 2011, even without a second of coaching experience on his resume. Through ...

Gods, Devils and Dysfunction: The Truth About Mark Jackson

Humans create devils to explain the unexplainable tragedies in life. Some religions use Satan as an explanation for famine, natural disasters and diseases like cancer. Mark Jackson turned out to be a metaphorical cancer, creating his own devils within the Warriors organization as he fought to rally his players around him. This is according to non-management sources from within the Warriors locker room (as r ...

Editor’s note: If you don’t know much about The Beatles, you may want to listen to this first. The Ballad of Joe and Jacko Standing on the sidelines of Staples Watching all these flops and these rants. My owner’s beet red, he’s shaking his head I knew he wouldn’t even give me a chance.

The Golden State Warriors Greatest Guard Ever: Steph or Timmy?

          Follow @JesseTaylor74 Stephen Curry is on his way to becoming one of the greatest Golden State Warriors in history. Over the summer, I ranked him #5 on the list of top 10 Warriors of the last 25 years, behind Baron Davis, Mitch Richmond, Tim Hardaway and Chris Mullin. His work this season on a playoff-bound Warriors team (no jinx) moves him in front of Davis and Richmond. ...

Lazy Writing: Ranking the Warriors #FullSquad 1-14

            Let’s call it like it is. Making lists and rankings is lazy. It makes for lazy writing and lazy reading. Create some guidelines (rank the Warriors roster based on how well each player is doing at the time of this post), copy and paste your topic (which I literally did by going to warriors.com/team/roster) and write a short blurb about each subject. I had a 30-minute writ ...
