Knicks announcer's MVP ballot had Curry behind Marc Gasol

It’s always interesting to see what happens when media votes are revealed for end-of-season awards.  While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, there’s usually one or two outliers that really make you scratch your head.

Conflict Of Interest With A Twist: Mark Jackson Should Stop Being Assigned To Golden State Games

Relationships, when they end for reasons other than death, do not generally end on great terms. If the parties involved got along so well that their break would be completely reasonable and without resentment, chances are there wouldn’t be a need for the split in the first place. This applies to nearly all relationships in life — even when an NBA franchise fires a coach. This...

Politically Incorrect Basketball Statements: Let’s Be Honest — The Warriors Are Preparing for the Western Conference Finals

I realize, having spent most of my life following and covering sports, that what I’m about to write is very politically incorrect. Playoffs are decided in series, and series consist of anywhere from four to seven games between the same two teams to determine one of two things: 1) the better team, or 2) the team which gets the benefit of the last bad call (see “Clippers, L.A....

Golden State Warriors: What did we learn?

After the Golden State Warriors waxed the Memphis Grizzlies 101-86 in game 1 of the Western Conference Semi-Final, it begs the question? What did this game tell us? First off this game showed us the Memphis Grizzlies need Mike Conley to return, otherwise they will get swept. The combination of Nik Calathes and Beno Udrih can’t match-up with NBA MVP Stephen Curry. Conley can...

Oh, look, it’s Tony Allen, that disrespectful scoundrel. During Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals series Sunday between the Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors, Allen walked right through a performance by the Warriors’ Junior Jam Squad during a timeout rather than walking around them so as not to interrupt.

2015 NBA Executive of the Year Results

On May 1, the NBA announced that they were awarding the 2014-2015 NBA Executive of the Year to Bob Myers of the Golden State Warriors. I’m certainly not surprised to see this recognition bestowed upon Myers, especially when the Coach of the Year award went to Atlanta’s Mike Budenholzer instead of Warriors’ coach Steve Kerr. […]

Warriors believe depth, sacrifice keys to their success

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Those golden yellow shirts the Golden State Warriors give to fans at every home playoff game are printed with a slogan that reads: ''STRENGTH IN NUMBERS.'' The wording is more than just a catchphrase for fans - it's practically a team motto. The Warriors wore down opponents all season with their depth, spelling stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson with a rotation...

Should the Warriors be worried about extended rest?

Everything seems to be lining up perfectly for the Golden State Warriors to earn their first trip to the NBA Finals since 1975. Steve Kerr’s squad swept the New Orleans Pelicans in a four-game series that seemed to be more competitive than the final outcome would suggest. That in and of itself is good news for the Warriors, who really weren’t tested during a 67-win regular...

​ Fifty-seven wins. In the last 30 years, only four non-lockout NBA champions won fewer than 57 games en route to the promised land.
