Legacies are difficult to evaluate. Some people are obsessed with counting the accolades and awards, and to them, a player’s legacy is determined almost solely by the number of rings, Finals MVPs and regular season MVPs he has amassed. But the way I look at it is, above all else, how good was he at… Read More How Much Does Winning this Ring Boost Steph Curry’s Legacy?
You know I’ve been complimentary of Steph in this series. I think I’ve been fair, though. I don’t think he’s had an all-time great series, but he did have an all-time great performance in Game 4. I am not one of those people who say Steph isn’t clutch, or that he’s played like shit in… Read More Warriors Take 3-2 Lead in Finals with 104-94 Win
I hate to be the “I told you so” guy, but in my post about Game 3, I said that the only way the Warriors can win games in this series is if the Celtics play like shit and Steph goes for 40. Tonight, the Celtics played like shit, Steph went for 43, and the… Read More Steph Drops 43, Warriors Prevail 107-97 to Tie Finals 2-2
I started writing this post when Marcus Smart hit a dagger three ball to make it 117-103 with under 5 minutes to play in the 4th. Boston is going to win this game by at least 10, probably 15+, after being down 10-15 points for most of the third quarter. I am highly impressed with… Read More Celtics Take Game 1 of 2022 NBA Finals, Steal Home Court Advantage
The ferocious Andrew Wiggins dunk right in Luka’s face was the moment the series ended. It was an 8 point game with about 6:40 to play, but that dunk ended the series. Goodnight. And now the Warriors are on the verge of their 6th Finals trip since 2015. The NBA Finals since 2015: 2015: Warriors… Read More Warriors on Verge of 6th Finals Appearance in Last 8 Years
I hate to admit it, but the Golden State Warriors are the Patriots of the NBA. Steve Kerr is the best coach in the game. They just plug dudes into that system, and they become stars. I’m not saying Jordan Poole isn’t talented or anything, and I’m not saying he doesn’t work hard. I’m just… Read More Jordan Poole is the Third Splash Brother
We’re about 20 games into the 2022 NBA season, and power ratings are my favorite thing in the world, so it’s time to start pumping out NBA power ratings in addition to my NFL and College Football ratings. As with the football ratings, it’s mainly based on net statistics, for example net points per game,… Read More NBA Power Ratings, December 1, 2021: Warriors On Top
The new rule in action. Sorry to pick on Steph Curry, but this is the clearest example we have at this early stage in the preseason: It’s about damn time. I’ve always said it should be an offensive foul to do that, but I’ll settle for a no-call. Glad the NBA finally addressed this. No… Read More “Not This Year.” First Look at New NBA Rules on Unnatural Motions, and It’s About Time
Yesterday, Steph Curry signed a 4 year contract extension with the Golden State Warriors that will probably ensure he retires a Warrior. He will be making $59.6 million in the 2026 NBA season, in which he will turn 38. Now, given that he’s a shooter, it’s entirely possible he’s still a highly effective basketball player… Read More What Are the Warriors Doing?
It’s been rumored since the Blazers’ season ended last month, but now it appears to be happening. This comes via Henry Abbott of True Hoop: Fifty-five is a ridiculous number of points to score in an NBA game, no matter how many shots you take. Just 45 days ago, Blazers guard Damian Lillard—thanks to 12… Read More 🚨🚨 Damian Lillard Reportedly Set to Request Trade: Where’s He Headed?
