Joe Lacob And Peter Guber: Meet the New Boss, Not the Old One

July 16th, 2010
I've been without my computer for the past day, so only when I logged in this evening did I hear the glorious news. After 15 years of misery under the yoke of Chris Cohan, the Golden State Warriors had finally been sold...wait...Larry Ellison isn't the buyer?  What? Like almost every other Warriors fan, ...

New York Knicks Fans: Prepare To Lose Your Hair Over Anthony Randolph

July 15th, 2010
Almost a week ago, after the Man Who Would Be King announced he was heading to Miami to party…sorry, play with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, the New York Knicks completed a sign-and-trade deal with my beloved Golden State Warriors which netted us David Lee in exchange for Anthony Randolph, ...

Golden State Warriors GM Larry Riley, Take a Bow

July 11th, 2010
As a Golden State Warriors fan, I had zero hopes going into this offseason. I would have been happy had we not traded Stephen Curry or sent Monta Ellis away for a bag of peanuts. Most of us were probably more interested in waiting for the day when Chris Cohan finally sold ...

Who Will Go Down As Our Generation’s NBA Hero?

July 10th, 2010
I turn 20 this August. I've been watching the NBA pretty much since I came out of the womb. I'm old enough to remember bits of Michael Jordan's second three peat, particularly the 1998 Finals series against the Jazz. I remember more of the Kobe-Shaq tandem in LA and how it blew ...

Why the David Lee Trade Was a Brilliant Move.

July 9th, 2010
Like seemingly everyone else, I was turned off by the utter narcissism and grandiosity of LeBron James' "Decision" special on ESPN. And like everybody else, I tuned it to watch it. However, I wasn't just watching to see what the "Man Who Will Never Be King" would do on an intellectual level. ...

NBA Draft 2010: Golden State, Portland Swap Second Round Picks.

June 21st, 2010
Matt Steinmetz recently Tweeted that the Golden State Warriors have made their first offseason move - they've agreed to trade second round picks with Portland. The Blazers get the 34th pick, while the Warriors get the 44th pick and cash. Whenever cash is the only reason for trading down in the draft, ...

The All-Time NBA Badass Team

June 20th, 2010
After Ron Artest put up an MVP-worthy performance in Game 7 of the NBA Finals (and a series of post-match interviews that should really be filed away by Congress for future generations) it got me thinking about players like Ron.  The Badasses. The NBA has seen many memorable badasses in its ...

2010 NBA Draft: Trade Ideas for Golden State’s Sixth Overall Pick

June 17th, 2010
Being unemployed has its benefits. While I think the amount of drinks I owe the boys is now reaching four-digit numbers and I’m seriously considering dealing drugs to pay for fuel, it does leave you with free time when uni isn’t in session. Like now. And with plenty to talk about, such ...

2010 NBA Draft: Golden State’s Second-Round Options

June 16th, 2010
With all the hype around the 2010 NBA lottery draft, it's sometimes easy to forget that the draft does have two rounds. The Warriors should know this. In 2002 and 2005, while our first round picks (Dunleavy Jr and Ike Diogu) never amounted to much, in the second round we managed to ...

Why I Would Give Up Anthony Randolph For DeMarcus Cousins

June 14th, 2010
I am a huge fan of Shakespeare. Generally, that’s not something I admit to unless I’m trying to pick up women by quoting the Bard of Avon. In the right setting, it can be fairly effective. However, I feel there is one particular Shakespearean quote which Larry Riley and the rest ...
