Season Review: Surviving The Game

Season Review: Surviving The Game

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports Steph Curry’s season was a war of attrition. Stephen Curry crammed his 6-foot-3 frame into a small chair in the living room of his East Bay home. His knee bruised and bloodied. His thigh swollen to the point of it looking like a loaf of sourdough bread fresh out of the oven. Only an hour or so removed from a heartbreaking loss in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, Curry’s thigh and knee were letting him know that it’s officially his summer and it’s time for immediate rest and recuperation. His mother Sonya pressed her fingers into the lump of flesh and felt...

Ranking Warriors All-Decade Teams: Part II

DubNation voted in the second squad, now who makes the third team? The votes are in for the Golden State Warriors All-Decade 2nd team for the 2010’s (the Hampton’s 5 lineup was bestowed automatic 1st team status). Let’s see who you chose! PG: Shaun Livingston SG: Monta Ellis SF: Harrison Barnes PF: David Lee C: Andrew Bogut As GSoM scribe Thomas Bevilacqua astutely pointed out, this lineup resembles a team fighting for an 8th seed in the 2012 Eastern Conference. A few questions worthy of morning sports chatter show spring to mind: Who is the leader of this team? Who takes the...

Ranking the All-Decade Warriors teams for the 2010’s

Photo by Jack Arent/NBAE via It’s time to show Monta some love, dammit! The 2010’s have been a transformational experience for both the Golden State Warriors and their fan base. The Dubs went from a 26-win dumpster fire in the 2010 season to allegedly ruining the entire NBA by sheer domination in the latter part of the decade. This caused Dub Nation’s presence to elevate from local “We Believe” unity, into the massive absorber of bandwagon fans we know today. Their unblinking fervor for their leader, the anointed child of God, Stephen Curry, unsettled even the great Kevin...

Did the Warriors bungle Kevin Durant’s injury? “Hell no,” KD says

Did the Warriors bungle Kevin Durant’s injury? “Hell no,” KD says

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports In his first interview since leaving Golden State, Durant stated that no one is at fault for his calf and Achilles injuries. The end of Kevin Durant’s tenure with the Golden State Warriors wasn’t ideal. His time as a key member of the dynasty ended when he returned from a calf injury in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, only to quickly sustain an Achilles tear that not only ended his season, but threatens to keep him out for all of the upcoming year, as well. Accompanying that injury was an arguably unfair amount of drama. Media members wondered, prior to the...

ESPN analyst ranks Blazers backcourt ahead of Splash Brothers

Another day. Another doubter. What else is new? November can’t get here soon enough. There’s no more player movement in terms of free agency. No more speculation , and not even rumors to occupy time between now and the tip off of the 2019-20 NBA Season. All that’s left us sports personalities being loud and wrong simultaneously. The latest example? ESPN’s Jalen and Jacoby released the top five backcourts in the West, and guest host Ryan Hollins came through in the clutch with some particularly hot takes. Top-5 backcourts in the West...whose list do you agree with more,...
