Coming Back

Tuesday’s game against the Sacramento Kings was a real turn around for the Golden States Warriors. After losing their last 5 consecutive games, the Warriors seem to have found their 3rd wind.

In the game against the Kings, Matt Barnes set career highs with 32 points and 11 rebounds, making six of the Golden State Warriors' 15 three-point baskets. Andris Biedrins had 20 points and 14 rebounds for the Warriors, who shot 53%.

Not bad, but they can do better.

Don’t Mess With Texas

The Golden State Warriors finally get a much needed break after 2 consecutive spankings by the San Antonio Spurs and the Houston Rockets.

Being from Texas and all, I’ve gotta laugh. The Warriors are supposedly a team with the highest-powered attacks in the league. With the way that they were missing in Texas, they wouldn’t have moved a butterfly off a bull’s-eye. They missed 12 of their first 15 attempts against the Rockets and 16 of their first 20 in San Antonio the night before.

If the Warriors can't find a way to put points on the scoreboard, they won't be adding many ticks in the win column in their next 10 games, of which seven are away from home.

Pacers Win by Dumb Luck

Stephen Jackson is one lucky guy who was in the right place at the right time. With 1 second remaining in the game Danny Granger misses the 3 pointer and Baron Davis swoops in swatting the ball blindly towards the perimeter straight to Jackson, who then won the game with a 3 pointer bringing the Indiana Pacers from defeat to victory.

What a terribly upsetting loss for Golden State Warriors’ fans at 108-106. But we won’t be upset for long when we beat the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday.

Let's end the drought before we hit 13!

The prognosticators are celebrating the return of Nellieball, although not all of them see Don Nelson performing a miracle in his first year back with the Warriors. I don't need the entire miracle, just an end to the 12-year string of not being in the NBA Playoffs at all. Nelson has been there before, and he knows how to work with the smaller, quicker talent we've got and will bring out the best in Baron Davis and Mike Dunleavy.

Want My Oakland World Series Tickets?

Actually, they don't end up charging you for a game that never happens, but...they would have been worth the price! Can't believe the Oakland A's blew four straight, but I guess the Detroit Tigers were really hungry.

So now I gotta pin my postseason hopes for glory on, uh, let's see, the Oakland Raiders? Nope, gotta stick with my Golden State Warriors--and the season's starting soon. Hey, I think NBA basketball is the most fun to watch. Not all that start and stop and scratch yourself...and I'd really like tickets to our opener with the LA Lakers -- Kobe and the rest.

personnel changes

Dajuan Wagner, formerly of the Cleveland Cavaliers, has been signed by the Warriors for the upcoming season. The 23-year-old guard was a first round draft pick in 2002, and he appeared in 47 games as a rookie. He shows great promise and will undoubtedly be an asset to the Warriors.

This news comes in the wake of the decision to make Don Nelson Head Coach. He will be the 23rd coach in the Warriors’ history, and is expected to make great strides in strengthening the franchise.

Finals contender falls facing unjust fear, anxiety and confused frustration.

I haven’t written in a while. The NBA Finals made me crazy and I couldn’t organize my thoughts well enough to make any statement regarding the anger I was feeling. For the first time in my 30 years I felt like something really wrong was going on in the NBA. How they can defend the officials who called the Final series is beyond me. I could be wrong, but consider the fact that I am not a homer and so many other people in this country feel a little dirty about this whole thing. We all saw the unbalanced treatment the Dallas Mavericks received from the officials on the court and the NBA itself. There were just way too many blatant inconsistencies for any true sports enthusiast to excuse away every bad call, non call and egregious abuse of authority.

Call me crazy but I think Dallas deserves some recognition for doing as well as they did in the face of unbeatable odds and fierce oppression.

LeBron and company face Pistons with a chance to tie the series.

I have been cheering for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the playoffs and LeBron James is making me very proud. Tonight’s game is very important. We need a win to compliment Saturday night’s victory and show the Detroit Pistons we have the will and strength to advance past them on to the Eastern Conference Finals. We will need some intense offense and physical defense to break the Pistons stride early.

A Playoff triple-double is so much sweeter.

LeBron James is the shining star of the NBA right now for racking up a triple-double on Saturday against the Washington Wizards. I think since the Golden State Warriors didn’t make it to the playoffs that I will cheer on LeBron and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Is it too late for the Warriors?

The Golden State Warriors have been struggling all year. This month has been better than February and certainly much better than January, but I just don’t se this team managing anything spectacular at this late date. Our best performance of late was against the Dallas Mavericks but we seem incapable of repeating that intensity.

It there something else on?

This latest string of Golden State Warriors losses has driven me to network TV for some entertainment. I am a big fan of Supernatural and that Lost show. The best one out in my opinion is The Shield. That show is gritty and original. I love the characters and stories.

Warriors battling so the Super Bowl is a nice distraction.

The Golden State Warriors are fighting to keep their heads above water right now but excitement is high with fans because Super Bowl XL is happening on Sunday. I am rooting for the Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger.
