All-Star Saturday is upon us!

All-Star Saturday is upon us!

Steph Curry is just one of the many stars showing off their specific skillsets tonight. By now you probably know: The Golden State Warriors will be featured tonight during All-Star Saturday. Face of the franchise Steph Curry will be lacing up his Under Armour sneakers to compete against his brother, Seth Curry of the Portland Trail Blazers in the three-point contest. But even beyond the Warriors connection, there’s a lot of excitement surrounding the Saturday events, which generally feature a little bit more competition than what transpires during the actual All-Star Game. The night...

Watch: Steph Curry saying James Harden said he’d like to “play different”?

Watch: Steph Curry saying James Harden said he’d like to “play different”?

The isocentric star of Houston Rockets allegedly says: ‘It’s fun, but I want to play different...I’m by myself whatever... hero ball.’ Did we just hear about James Harden pining away for a less isolation-based NBA offense? Now, I don’t know the context of the conversation, but keen-eyed observers of this weekend’s 2019 All Star festivities caught a very interesting exchange between Stephen Curry and coach Budenholzer. It’s a little hard to hear and the conversation picks up mid-stream, but here’s the meat of what was said: First thing he says is, ‘It’s fun, but I...

Stephen Curry, unofficial ambassador of All Star weekend, gets started by hosting a skills camp for youth

Stephen Curry, unofficial ambassador of All Star weekend, gets started by hosting a skills camp for youth

Self deprecating star yells “the next Steve Kerr” when kid makes shot; predicts another win at three-point contest Hometown hero Stephen Curry is already at work in Charlotte as All Star weekends begins it’s slow grind. For those that know him, it’s no surprise that Curry’s first official activity involved giving something back to the youth of the area. He participated in a short Q&A, where he not-so-boldly declared “I am” when asked who would win this year’s three-point contest. But as we would expect, Curry quickly got to work. While plenty of cameras were rolling, Curry...

All-Star Friday: The Warriors aren’t represented, and that’s the good news

All-Star Friday: The Warriors aren’t represented, and that’s the good news

They’ve moved on to bigger and better things in the Bay Area. One of my fondest NBA All-Star memories comes from 2007, when then Golden State Warriors guard Monta Ellis turned the Rookie-Sophomore Game into his personal slam dunk contest. The second-year guard put on an absolute show, with highlight after highlight leading to a 28-point performance. It was mesmerizing. As a fan, it felt like the Warriors finally had nice things. Like their time to shine was waiting on deck. Here was the future of the franchise, balling out at All-Star weekend - how could this end in any way other than...

Klay Thompson thinks Buddy Hield or Dirk Nowitzki will win the three-point contest

Klay Thompson thinks Buddy Hield or Dirk Nowitzki will win the three-point contest

Perhaps the former winner is trying to give his fellow Splash Brother some bulletin board material. Klay Thompson will almost surely be rooting for his Golden State Warriors teammate Steph Curry during Saturday’s three-point contest. But that doesn’t mean he expects his fellow Splash Brother to win. At an NBA Cares event on Friday, Thompson took a break from doing some construction to give his thoughts on Saturday’s shooting contest, an event that Klay has competed in four times, and won once. But when asked for a prediction, Thompson gave a surprising answer. He initially said he...

On Kevin Durant and his reaction to the Knicks-related speculation

On Kevin Durant and his reaction to the Knicks-related speculation

Regardless of what Durant decides to do this summer, the way he is discussed by much of the basketball media is enough to justifiably frustrate him. Warriors forward Kevin Durant has been the focus of much of the basketball media. But not for what he’s doing on the court. The rumors have been swirling, heightened in the wake of the New York Knicks shedding salary (and Kristaps Porzingis), about Durant’s eventual departure from the Bay Area for the Big Apple. After these moves by the Knicks, seemingly aimed at opening up cap room to sign Durant and perhaps another max-contract level...

The rise of the Bucks is reminiscent to that of the 2015 Warriors

The rise of the Bucks is reminiscent to that of the 2015 Warriors

The team with the best regular season so far has the talent to take down the Warriors in the playoffs. The Bucks are absolutely dominating the competition this season. After finishing 44-38 last season, seventh in the Eastern Conference, they’re sitting at a pretty 43-14 record at the All-Star break this year. If they continue their pace, they’ll win 61 games, seventeen more than last year. Not only does Milwaukee have the best record in the league, they’ve got the best point differential and net rating, boasting top five ratings on both offense and defense. They should be the big...

Steve Kerr fined $25K for Wednesday’s tirade

To the surprise of no one, the NBA has fined Golden State’s coach following his ejection. Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has been fined $25,000 for his outburst during Wednesday night’s loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.

Warriors lose, but enter the All-Star break in style

Warriors lose, but enter the All-Star break in style

They barked at opposing players. They threw tantrums and got ejected. They lost by 22. Do they care? Probably not. The Golden State Warriors skipped into the All-Star break following a 129-107 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night. They positively skipped. You might think losing by 22 points to a team that is fired up to beat you qualifies as taking a pretty big L before the league-mandated mini-vacation that this weekend offers. But you’d be wrong. In it’s own circuitous way, this loss was a win for the Warriors. Because they rode their horses into the break, guns...
