This is bad but doesn't top late-'80s New Year's Day when I lived in Philly & local TV would NOT leave Mummers Parade for nat'l title game.
Glad the Pac-12 got good TV money so fans might not be able to watch football and the UCs could raise tuition.
Fox Sports 1, Comcast Bay Area viewers 0.
I know Oklahoma-Kansas had a weather delay, but if FS1 can't get me Cal-Stanford from the start--and it can't--that's an embarrassment.
Monster mixtape still on repeat
Anyone selling 49er tickets for the 12/28 game?
It's not necessarily a good thing if your big man doesn't foul a lot.
The entire GSW franchise used to be set up as a DLee starring vehicle. I shook my head while it was happening. It's not that any more.
That's where DLee fans are right now I guess--it's my fault, it's Draymond Green's fault for playing well, it's all a conspiracy vs. DLee.
To the Raiders fan who says I "ruined" Thursday's victory for him by saying they were 1-10: The standings are Raider-haters.
Warriors GM Bob Myers not going anywhere, but with team success, how long till asst. GM Travis Schlenk gets poached?
Thought it would take longer but verdict in: Despite fan criticism, Kings did right thing by losing I.Thomas.
"Don't let em pimp you"
Steve Kerr on Andre Iguodala: "He's allowed Harrison (Barnes) to flourish."
Andrew Bogut on Klay Thompson's poker weakness: "He always chases flushes, man."
Andre Iguodala said Harrison Barnes is looking to prove he's an up-and-coming star in the league.
Kerr: "This was already a really good defensive team last year. ... Defensively, the foundation has been set."
Kerr: "Bogut was made for dribble handoffs. He's like a modern-day Arvydas Sabonis."
Warriors shoot 50 percent, get 28 assists on 41 baskets. Kerr: "We'll play better offensively on the road."
Kerr's going to be the opposite of happy.
It done got real out here in garbage time. Chase down blocks. Thwarted back dunks. Barnes angrily wrestling the ball away from centers
And practically, Kerr is only playing 1 true PF now anyway--Draymond Green. Speights is mainly the back-up C and Barnes gets PF minutes.
Stephen Curry being subbed out after grimacing, and a team trainer is talking to him.
Looks like Curry caught an elbow to the gut
Steve Kerr on the jumbotron said Doogie Howser could play him in a movie.
Did Iguodala just hit Burke with a Euro … without dribbling?
All the talk was about Kevin Love or Klay Thompson. A healthy Andrew Bogut is most important
David Lee examined at halftime, and Warriors saying he's making "very good progress." Good things happening to them even when not playing.
The Warriors say David Lee (hamstring) was examined at halftime and is making very good progress. He'll be re-evaluated on the 5-game roadie
David Lee making "good progress" according to team and will be reevaluated again on road trip.
First half summary: Warriors turned Jazz into sad trombone.
Warriors showing they can be scary good when they commit one turnover per quarter.
Jazz shooting 34.3 percent ... Kerr calls a timeout, angry at an easy Utah basket. He's trying to turn the Warriors into a defensive machine
The Warriors played 18 1/2 minutes between their first and second turnovers of the night.
More Draymond Green tongue?
The four days off were good to Andre Iguodala's knees.
No one at Oracle wearing a Free Enes shirt?
Warriors are 8-2 and lead the Jazz 8-0. Living that Oracle Arena life.
Last note: I figured Wiggins could defend the wings LeBron didn't want to any more. Marion isn't quite that any more.
The other point included in this: KLove can be a free agent either this summer or the next one. That's all part of the value.
The GSW decision was: Klay + DLee/Draymond > KLove + KMartin. I understood that decision. Others howled.
If I was Cleveland, I wouldn't have given up Wiggins in the KLove package. Said it then, believe it even more now. But LBJ wanted a PF.
Not trying to cherry pick my timing here, but I never quite got the argument over the summer that KLove was a superstar. He's not.
GSW vs UTA starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut; UTA -- Burke, Burks, Hayward, Favors, Kanter. Out: Lee (hamstring).
Utah center Rudy Gobert is chowing down in the Warriors' media dining room.
My roll was a little "forward" today.
Warriors power forward David Lee won't play tonight. His strained hamstring will be reevaluated after tonight's game.
Also looking into my imaginary crystal ball: Bogut wouldn't have been into Love at all.
I'm imagining Curry, trying to do right thing, going out of his way to accommodate high-maintenance Kevin Love on offense. Yuck.
Offensive pecking orders are important, and Kevin Love would have messed up Warriors' pecking order something awful.
Last season GSWs shot 46.2% (9th), held opponents to 43.6% (4th) and had a +2.6% FG differential (7th).
In case you were wondering, the last time the Warriors shot better than 50% in a season was 1991-92, when they shot 50.7%.
That's good for a staggering +8.5% Warriors FG differential, my favorite stat... Last season the Spurs led the league at +7.8%.
Just noticed this: GSWs currently are shooting 49.9%, best in the league, and holding opponents to 41.4%, ALSO best in the league.
Steve Kerr to KNBR: "I never call a play on a defensive rebound."
Steve Kerr on Stephen Curry beating him in FT contests: "He swishes everything. The guy's annoying. It's just crazy. I can't beat him."
Steve Kerr told ESPN of FT contests w/ Curry it's 2 pts for swish, 1 for make, -1 for miss. He's lost all 8 contests while missing 1 FT.
I've covered many big negotiations. All sides think certain things at one point which doesn't mean they think that way 20 minutes later.
Andre Iguodala: "I'm not really concerned about myself, just that the guys around me are playing well and I'm helping them play better."
The fans chose Tuesday's game between the Warriors and Heat to air on NBA TV.
