Dwight and Andris

Per the Hack-a-Dwight ploy, I asked Mark Jackson a question that I already knew the answer to. Coaches rarely say, “Look, I would have made a different decision had I the opportunity,” after all. ESS: “Are you happy with the strategy? Would you use it again?” Mark Jackson: “I’m a flow guy. We put ourselves in position to win the ball game.” You know, I actually agree with Jackson agreeing with Jackson. Whil ...

Spoiler alert, Larry Riley discussing Curry's pronation alert, David Lee saying "Wrizzle" alert, massive Warriors comeback and win alert) Quick, unprofound thought to start this: Basketball is super fun.

Baiting Ellis

Quoting from last week's post: "Monta gets his assists in fast forward. He’s been getting a lot of them lately, to the tune of an 8.2 average over these opening games. Ellis flies through defenses like an untied balloon, calmly dumping the ball to an open man at the very last millisecond. Monta, the mid-air point guard, dropping vertical passes like so many Zeus lightening bolts. This can’t be sustainable. ...

Warriors under Jazz: Reverse Chronology

(Trying something new here, this recap is in reverse. You should mostly read it for Mark Jackson's extended anecdote on asking for a foul against LA) Game Ending Disaster strikes. Up by one, 17 seconds left, Monta seemingly pulls up for a contested jumper. Near the corner, an open Klay Thopmson holds his hands out for the ball. At the last second, airborne Ellis flings a pass to Thompson. Except, Klay isn’t ...

Complicating Curry

Curry crumpled over that ankle again, this time in a loss to the Spurs. The Warriors had been looking well, Monta and Steph were sharing an awesome, ephemeral moment of  complimentary play. But an ankle doesn't care if usage rates coalesce into beautiful functionality like two coiling DNA strands. If an ankle wants to buckle, you're going down. Sportscaster Larry Beil gave the proper immediate context for l ...

Andris Biedrins: Free Falling

Andris Biedrins had potential. At age 25, the Latvian looks more imposing than ever. His once craggy shoulders now bulge with muscle. He used to be so pale and gawky. The new Andris has a tan, slightly-ruddy complexion. He’s the picture of seven-foot health, not some hind-legged fawn who lives life on the brink of perpetual teetering. In 2008, I might have spied 2012 Biedrins in a crystal ball and praised t ...

Nate Robinson set to bring his sideshow to Oakland

  By: Jordan Ramirez Remember Nate Robinson? Robinson played for the New York Knicks and made a name for himself by winning three NBA slam dunk contests at only 5’9’. Robinson was a fan favorite in New York, not only because of his height but because of his sparkplug play coming off the bench. Providing quick offense, and not afraid to put up a shot, Nate was in the good graces of many fans but eventua ...
