Golden State Warriors: No time to rest

The Golden State Warriors are NBA Champions. However, they are far from perfect. Great teams can always upgrade; this is exactly what the Warriors should be looking to do. They helped themselves out on draft night by stealing UCLA’s Kevon Looney at 30th overall. Even though he won’t be an impact player right away, within 3 years he will be looked at as one of the steals of the...

Three Important Takeaways From Game 6

The Golden State Warriors closed out The Finals on Tuesday with a 105-97 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 6. 1. Replication of Game 4 Losing Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving to injuries resulted in the Cavaliers discovering a new identity as a power team.

The Dubs Get The Ultimate W, As Draymond Quietly Delivers

The 2015 NBA Finals will long be remembered as a plot-twist-laden journey at the end of a paradoxical playoff season. On one hand, this playoff season and NBA Finals series ended the way most expected — the team with the best record won, the team with LeBron James was there at the end to make it a fight. Yet, the road traveled to get to that expected endpoint was anything but linear...

Prepare yourselves, Cavs fans. Game 6 is going to be an absolute brawl to scratch and claw the Cavaliers to a Friday night date with a Game 7 in Oakland.

Long-misunderstood Iguodala is Warriors key to Finals so far

  Andre Iguodala’s biggest flaw has always been that he says what he means.   Candor is frowned upon in tough, cold Northeastern cities, where we like our professional athletes gritty, reliable and, most of all, boring. It’s why the “Patriot Way” is revered in New England, say-nothing Derek Jeter was deified in New York and Iguodala was never a good fit in...

Steve Kerr Admits He Lied About Warriors Starting Lineup

After the Golden State Warriors lost two straight outings and failed to display a consistent offensive attack, head coach Steve Kerr turned to a small-ball lineup.

The Cavaliers have held the Golden State Warriors to less than 60 points in the first three quarters over the last two games. In order to do that to Golden State’s offensive arsenal, the Cavs have given an unprecedented defensive effort.
