What do I have in common with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in SF? We both get paid to sit around and talk about baseball.
Should Scott Brooks have been fired?
When all was said and done, the feds had but a single obstruction charge on Barry Bonds. Tossed out today by 9th Circuit COA.
OKC fires Scott Brooks, cites a long-view concern. Here's one long-ish view: 338-207, Brooks' record in 7 seasons. Just, you know, whatever.
Scott Brooks will not be without an NBA head coaching position for too long. Quality human being.
So who wants to take the OKC job knowing they could lose Kevin Durant to free agency?
Wonder what Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are thinking right now ...
Justin Maxwell just notched his place as one of my favorite Giants for what he's done single handedly in this game against a bitter rival
On 2nd thought, I'd say Justin Maxwell's okay. Hold off on that ice.
Maxwell is staying in?!? I would've been rolling around the field for an hour. What a catch!
The A's look like a bad little league team tonight in Anaheim.
TERRIBLE FREAKING CALL
Josh Smith had become the lob-master
Fans in Cleveland unaware that it's a close game in the 4th quarter.
Can someone wake up the fans in Cleveland? WEAK crowd tonight. They do realize that this is a playoff game, right?
"Webber confused Rachel Nichols with Rachel Ray? PUN INTENDED!!!"-Reggie Miller
Very sad to hear of the passing of Steve Byrnes. Cancer sucks.
The Warriors now have a 2-0 playoff series advantage for the 1st time since 1989 Western Conference 1st Round vs. Utah.
One more thing: Ranadive visibly annoyed about DMC chatter. "I don't know why that stuff is out there," he said, noting NBA is rumor mill
Ranadive added that he already appreciates Vlade Divac's leadership, believes front office is solid. Predicts an active summer, no DMC trade
Vivek Ranadive leaving after GSW win. Says he admires former team, wants Kings to emulate. Reiterated plans to build with Karl, Cousins.
And confetti falls in Oakland
Warriors take Game 2 over Pelicans 97-87. New Orleans absolutely crumbled. Warriors a well oiled machine headed to New Orleans.
Curry wasn't at his best, but Klay and Co. had enough for Warriors to win 97-87, take 2-0 lead in the series. Curry shot 9/21 for 22 points
Good coaching reinforces the repetition of scores and stops not just one good offensive possession or getting one defensive stop
Young Pelicans falling apart late.
Pelicans have imploded. Someone gave them Alka Seltzer...
Really terrible possessions from the Pelicans in final few minutes. Warriors up 92-86 2:12 to go.
Steph Curry ran into a wall named Omer Asik. Playoff foul
Marreese Speights and Draymond Green are those blue collar, lunch in a brown bag, hard-hat wearing, blue collar, construction type dudes
What a block by Dante Cunningham!!!.....no relation.....
Tyreke Evans has looked shaky battling the knee contusion, 13pts (3/11), 8 rebounds and 6 assists for the Pelicans in 32 mins
All tied in Game 2 with Warriors and Pelicans at Oracle headed to the 4th. Steph Curry with 22, Anthony Davis with 20.
On improving the Kings roster for next season, Vivek Ranadive said Pete D'Alessandro & Vlade Divac have their work cut out for them.
Kings owner Vivek Ranadive still openly admires what the Warriors have done. Very much believes Kings are not that far away. Wore Kings polo
Kings owner Vivek Ranadive is very put-off by trade rumors with DeMarcus Cousins, especially since he signed him. No desire to trade him
Won't see this often: Anthony Davis loses his footing, slips, Draymond Green helps him up as teammates take off in transition
Just spoke with Kings owner Vivek Ranadive during halftime. Will share video of interview shortly, but very interesting off-camera comments
6-1 Warriors run to start 2nd half
Multiple touches in multiple quadrants of the floor is an under appreciated stress on the defense
Steph Curry and the Warriors storm back to lead Pelicans at halftime 55-52. Curry with a 3 in closing seconds, has 16pts. Anthony Davis 14
Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive Courtside watching his old Warriors team tonight. Appears to be wearing purple instead of yellow/gold
Perhaps Anthony Davis did figure something out in the second half of game 1 because he's still rolling with 14 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists
Leandro Barbosa is taking over this 2nd quarter for the Warriors. The Brazilian Blur has still got it. 10pts early in Game 2
Pelicans are up 37-32, 7:26 left in the second quarter
Norris Cole looking like Cleveland State Norris Cole
Tremendous job by the Warriors bench to pull within 4 forcing a Pelicans timeout. As if it were possible for Oracle to get anymore amped up
