I sorta believe the best, toughest criticism comes when it's in context. I've been screamed at by 49ers execs for my take on Aldon Smith.

Tim Kawakami

Guess I've been accused of being a 49ers homer by someone who used to be my friend. See 49ers fans, you've got it all wrong.

Tim Kawakami

Quick take on the latest addition to the 49ers' off-season of accumulated incidents and bad behavior... bit.ly/1eywlso

Rusty Simmons

Sorry for the confusion. I meant to separate Ezeli's status from Kuzmic & Nedovic. Ezeli rehabbing with GSW. Kuz and Nedo playing with SCW.

Tim Kawakami

Note: The 49ers went 5-0 without Aldon Smith last season. Wasn't against their five toughest opponents, but still a note.

Rusty Simmons

Mark Jackson's "everybody is available" doesn't include Festus Ezeli or Ognjen Kuzmic and Nemanja Nedovic, who are with the D-League team.

Tim Kawakami

Harbaugh said "above reproach" back in June--no matter the context, that was always going to bite him if 49er players started screwing up.

Rusty Simmons

Mark Jackson wants to have a conversation with David Lee about his health before he decides tonight's starting lineup.

Rusty Simmons

Warriors head coach Mark Jackson said he thinks everybody is available tonight vs. Portland.

Tim Kawakami

49ers' most important staffer: Offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator or defense counsel?

Congrats to @bubbawatson on Winning The Masters! Keep letting HIM use you bro!

Tim Kawakami

The true most consistent drama in sports apparently is now the 49ers Legal Defense Hotline.

Tim Kawakami

I heard again and again this week that the Masters always creates its own majestic drama on Sunday. Except when it doesn't, I guess.

Gameday !! Weather is beautiful today in Portland... Any of you gonna be there tonight? http://t.co/G7fPZSAenH

Match is over and Wondolowski is still barking. He all but chased down Columbus' Gonzalez and had to be held back

Wondolowski made it clear he wanted a piece of a Columbus defender. Pretty fiery little fella

In LA Times story today Harrison Barnes called "Most deteriorated player," the opposite of Most Improved. Ouch.

Didn't get the fight, but every writer I respect has Pacquiao winning easily. Which might scare the Pacquiao camp.

D-League media seat close enough to the action for this shot of Brian Scalabrine's awesome socks. http://t.co/eHXqY2749a

Santa Cruz Warriors advance in D League playoffs. Brian Scalabrine did a celebratory Hulk-like flex at Kirk Lacob, who did one back.

Diamond Leung

Ognjen Kuzmic leaves game with 23 points and 18 rebounds. In other news, Los Angeles relinquishes the D-Fenders nickname.

Diamond Leung

Nemanja Nedovic took a little shot to the face/jaw a week after suffering a concussion. Looks to be OK and smiling now.

Diamond Leung

Ognjen Kuzmic has 14 points on 7-for-7 shooting and 10 rebounds. Santa Cruz up 112-96 over LA.

Diamond Leung

Ognjen Kuzmic blocked a 3-pointer, picked up the loose ball and went in for a breakaway dunk on the other end.

Diamond Leung

D-League ref told Brian Scalabrine to sit down after a foul call. Scalabrine didn't immediately comply, replying, "I want to hear this."

Stephen Curry

This weather is nice!

Stephen Curry

Just landed in Portland. Who y'all taking in the fight tonight?

Marcus Thompson

Just saw former Cal stars Leon Powe and Ayinde Ubaka chatting at an AAU tournament at Albany High

Stephen Curry

Hey @Chris Paul, can you ask @CliffPaul for those glasses he promised me All-Star Weekend? A bet is a bet and I made that parking lot shot fairly.

Watching Warriors on DVR. After seeing first half, I think I can say this with confidence: Curry is good

Warriors I believe are now 572-0 with Lee in the lineup.

Tim Kawakami

A real reader-comment on my blog, just because --> "David Lee comes back. Warriors win. Kawakami looks ridiculous. Again."

Good win!!! Feels good to finally clinch a playoff spot. Glad I got to see the homies @lancefresh and… instagram.com/p/mrcp1EEak2/

The last time the Warriors clinched a 2nd consecutive playoff trip... was the season they traded Mitch Richmond, 1991-92. #halloffamekarma

Marcus Thompson

Warriors-Clippers first round series is going to be epic

Tim Kawakami

For the Warriors to get 5 seed, POR would have to lose both its remaining games and GSWs would have to win all 3 left (including Sun @ POR).

Tim Kawakami

Warriors clinch a playoff spot.Very likely to be the 6th seed in the West and draw 3 seed LACs in the first round.

Tim Kawakami

Dueling historic titans: Curry matches Chamberlain and Bumgarner matches @sestes55 on the same night.
