Steph Curry, Kevin Durant named All-Star game starters

Steph Curry, Kevin Durant named All-Star game starters

Warriors occupy 40% of the starter spots? Acceptable. Well, we now know who our All-Star game starters are: This will be Durant’s 8th All-Star appearance and Curry’s 4th. Rounding out the starting five for the West are Kawhi Leonard, Anthony Davis, and James Harden. Out East, Lebron James and Kyrie Irving will anchor a team along with DeMarre DeRozan, Jimmy Butler, and Giannis Antetokounmpo. New Format In a change this year, the NBA All-Star starters are selected via a weighted hybrid approach: 50% fan vote, 25% NBA player vote, and 25% media votes. The All-Star game...

Weekly Warriors discussion thread: All-Star starters, Zaza Pachulia’s foul, and David West’s injury

The first edition of weekly discussion threads at GSoM. For a while now, we’ve been talking about having a weekly thread that would remain pinned near the top of the site for people to just drop random comments in throughout the week. With the 2017 NBA All-Star starters being announced today at 4 p.m. PST on TNT, we figured that today would be as good a day as any to get it started. Here’s how this will work: We’ll post this once a week and keep it pinned near the top of the site as a single running thread. As you have discussions you want to start throughout the week, you can...

Kiki Vandeweghe will review the Zaza/Westbrook incident

Will we see any sort of discipline handed down to either player from the NBA? There were so many wonderful subplots floating around last night. Stephen Curry vs. Russell Westbrook. Westbrook vs. Kevin Durant. Durant vs. his former team. Little did we know Zaza Pachulia would insert himself with mucho gusto into the middle of the rivalry. Your browser does not support HTML5 video. OOOOOOOUCH that’s gotta hurt. Zaza is a big dude. After the game, Russ said some things that ... yeah .. probably should not have been said. You know, if he was worried about a fine, or a...

David West’s injury creates opportunity for Warriors’ seldom-used bigs

David West’s injury creates opportunity for Warriors’ seldom-used bigs

With David West slated to miss at least two weeks with a fractured thumb, the Warriors must adopt ‘next man up’ mentality. OAKLAND, Calif. — Only three players on Golden State’s roster have appeared in each of the Golden State Warriors’ 42 games played this season. Former MVPs Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant have yet to miss a game, which for better or worse is not too surprising. But the third member of this iron-man trio? 36-year-old former All-Star David West. Despite averaging only 11 minutes per game, West has made an appearance in every Warriors’ game this season. But...

Explain One Play: Zaza Pachulia pick and roll with Curry and Durant

Explain One Play: Zaza Pachulia pick and roll with Curry and Durant

Zaza dished out the hard fouls and the pick and roll playmaking in the Thunder-Warriors game on Jan 18, 2017. The People’s Choice, Zaza Pachulia, is starting to look more comfortable out there. He still has passes bounce off him, but he’s working hard for rebounds. He’s comfortable enough to take Draymond’s role dealing out the hard flagrant fouls. And he’s also playing Draymond’s playmaking role in the pick and roll. This is a great sign, and his hard-nosed play and solid passing make up for his slow ways and Zay-ups, those many muffed layups. Zaza pick and roll with Curry The...

Weary Oklahoma City Thunder overcome by unyielding Golden State Warriors 121-100

Weary Oklahoma City Thunder overcome by unyielding Golden State Warriors 121-100

Oklahoma City gave a hard-fought effort before Golden State opened the floodgates The Oklahoma City Thunder lost on the road to the Golden State Warriors 121-100 Wednesday night. Prior to an insurmountable third-quarter Warriors surge, Oklahoma City fought tooth-and-nail with their acrimonious 2016 Western Conference Finals antagonists. It was during the penultimate frame, however, that Kevin Durant scored 13 of his game-high 40 points to waylay his former longtime-franchise. In the deciding 12-minutes following intermission, a dormant Golden State offense emerged to power past a battered,...

Kevin Durant leads Warriors to 121-100 victory over Thunder

Kevin Durant leads Warriors to 121-100 victory over Thunder

Durant put on a thunderous show against his old team, as the superstar flop tour continued at Oracle Arena. Kevin Durant faced his old team for the second time since leaving Oklahoma City and once again put on a dominant performance, leading the Warriors to a 121-100 victory. Durant scored 40 points on 16 attempted shots, going 9-of-10 from the line, 5-of-7 from downtown and racking up 12 rebounds, four assists and three blocks. Not a bad night at all. Though the Warriors started off lacking energy, they kept pace with the Thunder for the first half, going to the break tied at 56. There...

Is Kevin Durant a choker?

Is Kevin Durant a choker?

Taking a look at the fourth quarter woes of Kevin Durant; is there any truth to the "choker" label? Kevin Durant is a choker. Or at least that's what people keep saying. This belief is probably in part due to the Oklahoma City Thunder blowing a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference final last season, but also because of his general lack of production down the stretch of big games. While he has had some incredibly clutch shots worthy of an all-time highlight reel, as the old saying goes, there's no smoke without fire. To begin with let's get our geek on and take a look at some of the...
Is it time for the Cleveland Cavaliers to panic?

Is it time for the Cleveland Cavaliers to panic?

With the blowout loss to the Warriors, it’s easy to have some cause for concern regarding the Cavs. Whenever you’re thoroughly dismantled the way the Cleveland Cavaliers were by the Golden State Warriors, it’s inevitable to have some concerns. Like any loss, there are easy excuses to find. End of a long road trip. Missing J.R. Smith. Both Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving dealing with nagging injuries. But those excuses don’t change the fact that the Cavs were systematically crushed by an incredibly talented Warriors roster. With that being said, as a Cavs fan is it time to panic? The...

Steve Kerr: Distant frontrunner for Most “Woke” NBA Coach Award

Steve Kerr: Distant frontrunner for Most “Woke” NBA Coach Award

Coach Kerr’s comments on the significance of the NBA’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration at the start of a week that will end with the inauguration of the most divisive and unprepared president in modern history commanded respect from around the league, and beyond. Steve Kerr wore a Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. t-shirt into his pregame presser before the Golden State Warriors’ hotly-awaited game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday. The shirt read, “His dream inspired the world. Never stop dreaming,” and it featured an image of Dr. King in thoughtful repose. Dr. King...

Breaking down the legitimacy of the Warriors-Cavs rivalry

Breaking down the legitimacy of the Warriors-Cavs rivalry

Does the Golden State - Cleveland matchup fit the mold of a true NBA rivalry? OAKLAND, Calif. — The Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers are the toast of the NBA. There is really no debating that. The tale of the tape features the last two NBA champions, seven of the league’s last eight MVPs and seven potential Hall of Famers. The Cavs have the association’s highest payroll and the Dubs might very well have the greatest roster ever assembled in professional basketball. But even with all of this said, are the Warriors and Cavaliers the best rivalry in the NBA today? Are...

This back-breaking, buzzer-beating Curry three was arrogant as heck

And I loved it so, so much. Oh man, there are only a few things in life that make me truly happy. 1.) My dumb cats. 2.) My awesome, loving wife. 3.) A nice, cool, adult beverage on a hot summer day (same for a nice, warm one by a fire during a snowstorm). 4.) Stephen Curry dancing around, dropping bombs on the Cleveland Cavaliers. I mean, this was filthy, arrogant, disrespectful, and it made my entire week. Runner up for play of the night (in terms of how much it twisted the knife in the Cavs’ side): Shellshocked. pic.twitter.com/933Zu3rgWD — Deadspin (@Deadspin) January 17,...

Chase Center construction to begin

The franchise finally will put shovels into the ground in its long-planned arena move from Oakland to San Francisco. After years of planning, one trashed proposal, delays, gaining approval from the requisite regulatory agencies, and defeating a great many lawsuits, the Golden State Warriors are finally beginning construction on Chase Center. The team will celebrate the long-awaited groundbreaking on their state-of-the-art 18,000-seat arena and 11-acre entertainment complex in Mission Bay during a ceremony today, live-streaming on ChaseCenter.com and on csnbayarea.com at 11:00 a.m. Members...

We need to win them all

The Golden State Warriors trounced the Cleveland Cavaliers (126-91), splitting their season matchup 1-1. So what does it all mean? This game meant something. The Martin Luther King, Jr. Day match between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers has been circled on fans’ calendars ever since the Cavaliers orchestrated a come-back victory over the Warriors on Christmas Day. But unlike that last game, the Warriors kept their foot on the gas from start to finish. The result — a 126-91 blowout by Golden State. With the regular season series split at 1-1, these two teams can’t...

Explain One Play: Durant and Warriors defend LeBron and Kyrie

The Warriors played outstanding defense which turned into great counter-attacking offense in the Cavaliers-Warriors game on Jan 16, 2017. Kevin Durant is starting to get the hang of this defense thing. Tonight, he played a great defensive game, both in the team setting and when challenged in isolation. The Warriors in general were locked-in on defense and repeatedly turned stops into counter-attacking transition points. Let’s look at the schemes the W’s used to contain LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Kevin Durant against big and small First, he got isolated in the post against Kevin...

Cavs v. Warriors II: Warriors storm to 126 - 91 victory

It was a vulgar display of power for 48 minutes, with the Warriors leading wire-to-wire en route to a second strong showing against the Eastern Conference’s best. The Warriors will have to win the Western Conference in order to see the Cavaliers again this season. The Golden State Warriors hosted a tilt of titans on MLK Day, as the Cleveland Cavaliers stepped back onto Oracle Arena’s hardwood for the first time since June. Since their Christmas Day collapse, questions buzzed around the Warriors and this matchup like fleas: what’s wrong with Stephen Curry? Are the Cavs an unmullable...
