The Warriors' slogan for Game 3: "Loud. Proud. Warriors." http://t.co/OfDKE6LBms
As if Warriors fans will need it tonight, the video boards at Oracle Arena are already urging them to make noise. http://t.co/UBtd9pP8U4
You one of those guys who don't come to this side of Bay?
Same-color-T-shirt-in-arena thing now played. But never better than bold gold of "We Believe." Color pops more than blue or white.
Bice 3:0 u Torinu
Top SG salaries 14-15: Kobe 23M, Joe J. 22M, Wade 20M, Gordon 14.8M, Harden 14.7M ... DeRozan, Ellis, Afflalo all under $10M per though
If they don't move Lee, GSW will be paying each starter double-digits in 2015-16. On books for $50.5M + whatever Klay gets for starters
Complicating matters for Warriors' bid to upgrade is the pending extension for Klay. No way they get him in $8-$10M range
Matt Barnes to Clippers TV on Oracle: "I'm lucky enough to get to experience it twice. It's just an electricity throughout the building."
Your Game 3 Warriors-Clippers officials: Ken Mauer, Eric Lewis and Ed Malloy.
Doc Rivers on fans at Oracle Arena: "Unless the fans have a playoff intensity, I don’t know if they can be much louder. They’re great."
So which of you were always ripping me when I chose Klay in the hypothetical Barnes or Thompson debate?
The Warriors, Mavericks, Grizzlies, Nets and Hawks all head home with a series split. Who's in worst shape?
The Warriors, Mavericks, Grizzlies, Nets and Hawks all head home with a series split. Whose in best shape to finish off the upset?
Stephen Curry: "They don't get two wins for beating us that bad."
Harrison Barnes is going to be arriving at Oracle Arena in style for tonight's Game 3 vs. the Clippers. http://t.co/RpW4OUy2wJ
Many of the downtown Oakland Marriott employees are decked out in blue and gold Warriors garb. They're ready for Game 3 vs. the Clippers.
Harrison Barnes was trying to describe the Oracle Arena playoff atmosphere to the new guys. He settled on "You just have to experience it."
Difference between aggressive/making plays & scoring. Iguodala can make plays. Don't think he can score consistently & be efficient.
Iguodala averaged 13 ppg. on NBA's highest-scoring team last year. 7.3 FGAs per game this year. Don't know if he can score consistently.
Agree on Iguodala's importance, but not sure if he can be offensive guy Warriors need him to be -- consistently, at least.
It's Nickname time for LA!
Told you Rockets were a better match-up
Quietly an awful, awful foul there by Beverley. Two free ones change everything.
I'd foul Howard up nine. Why let Houston get 3 per possession?
Nice to see Dorell Wright contributing in big way for Portland. Easy guy to root for.
Playoff basketball...two notable 3pt shooting teams have abandoned that philosophy and gone to Post Dwight and iso Aldridge---Analyze that
The Coliseum Authority and A's fired at each other again in press releases today, and it's not yet 2:45. So... 3 more statements by 10 pm?
Jermaine O'Neal to Tim Roye on Oracle in playoffs: "I heard it's bananas...I think we can be able to set some type of (decibels) record."
Doc Rivers told reporters he's guessing the Warriors take Stephen Curry off the ball and run him off screens.
Marreese Speights: "The Clippers fans weren't really that rowdy like these fans are going to be."
My point about Raiders-fan rage: They hate me because I criticized their worst decisions, which led to terrible seasons. And still hate me.
Drafting JaMarcus? My fault. Hiring Tom Walsh? My fault. Acquiring Matt Flynn? Letting Gruden go? All me.
Dodgers and Warriors co-owner Peter Guber today on KNBR chanted, "Beat LA! Beat LA! Beat LA!"
Jackson said Draymond Green has set great screens. But otherwise: "We've got to do a better job putting a little Draymond in our games."
More Jackson on Iguodala, who has 12 FGAs in this series: "If they're going to play Steph that way, then guys have got to be live options."
Mark Jackson on Andre Iguodala's offensive role: "We need him to be more aggressive, whether it be for himself or making plays...
Blake hasn't been stellar with Warriors, but toughness/track record speaks for itself. Staff has role in production dearth.
If you play Curry more at two, it means more running, navigating, cutting through screens for Chris Paul and his bad hammy.
If you watched Warriors this season, you shouldn't have problem with Bogut DPOY votes. Guy was incredible rim-protecting this year.
Only natural PxP guy who calls 80 of own team's games, travels with team, develops relationships, etc., might lean toward own team.
Klay Thompson given second-place votes for most improved player by Ric Bucher and Bob Fitzgerald.
I don't want to be part of a body of voters that includes team employees.
Technically, TV crew is affiliated with network, but make no mistake, it's controlled by team.
For the record: I didn't have a vote for any NBA award and don't want one.
It's disingenuous for NBA to say play-by-play guy has media affiliation with Comcast Sports Net (regional). Those guys team employees.
San Jose leaders hoped the lawsuit--and the fear of potential discovery process--would drive MLB into serious negotiations. Didn't happen.
Goran Dragic wins Most Improved Player Award w/ 65 first-place votes. Klay Thompson received two 2nd-place votes from the 126-person panel.
The Warriors are a strange team in that they're a very good passing team but a very bad ballhandling team. Kind of weird.
Tons of tweets about Curry needing to shoot more, pass less, stop deferring, get selfish, etc. Those decisions supposed to be essence of PG.
But on another topic: The Sharks are... intimidating. First time I can ever honestly say I've thought that, and am thinking that.
Is the Coliseum Authority blameless? Absolutely not. This is a mess. The Raiders are involved, too. But the A's statements are silly.
If you were another owner even THINKING of voting with the A's in this controversy, you see this stuff and you'd never do it. Never ever.
My point about A's statements: I can't believe how sloppy they are, how reckless, and how much it shows us about their overall sloppiness.
Then that's ridiculously sloppy by the A's. And I would point out, possibly an unintentional truth told. San Jose is not happening.
Even a few weeks ago, San Jose supporters were telling me I was biased against SJ for reporting the reality the A's owners just confirmed.
Team statement on story author: "A’s ownership fully agrees with his point of view. His facts are correct." So: San Jose option is dead.
Excerpt: Wolff's offer "makes it obvious he has no expectation of gaining territorial rights to SJ at any point in the near future if ever."
The A's officially recommend an SB Nation story on the 10-year Coliseum lease dueling PR statements, which is interesting because...
Showcase rosters will be announced tonight!
Joe Lacob to KNBR on looking to "blow the roof off" at Oracle in G3: "Let's show these guys from LA what a real arena experience is like."
Joe Lacob to KNBR on possibly changing Golden State name: "We don't know. We haven't made that decision. We'll deal with that later."
Joe Lacob to KNBR: "We get our home crowd behind us, which is so much louder than that facility down in LA."
I get goosebumps just thinking about thursday
Very unclutch of Hinrich
The rapidly approaching Hawks-Wizards EC semi is really going to set the ratings world ablaze, I predict.
Well, that was certainly a well-designed offensive set.
Draymond Green to KNBR and watching Stephen Curry repeatedly take contact from the Clippers: "It pissed me off, and we'll remember that."
That timeout might be the most Randy Wittman thing Randy Wittman has done all season.
JJ gettin to it!!
