No matter the sport you are in one of the most common factors in building a championship caliber team is strong drafting and developing homegrown talent. Around the NBA you have seen that with the (OKC) and (SAS) in recent years and now we see it in the Bay Area. The Golden State Warriors will make their first NBA Finals appearance since winning it all in 1975. For the fans...
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Golden State Warriors know all about playoff upsets. After all, the franchise pulled off one of the biggest stunners in NBA history just eight years ago.
This time, they'll be trying to avoid suffering the same fate they once handed out.
The Warriors enter the playoffs as the NBA's top seed after winning a franchise-record 67 games. Of course, it wasn't...

I've always considered Kevin Garnett's career to be bordering tragic. He's the greatest team player I've ever seen play the game, and dare I say probably the best I'll ever see. Gifted with incredible length and athleticism and fueled by fire (and I've always assumed the sounds of DMX looping internally) Garnett was everything you could ask for. A game changing defensive force, seemingly...
So quick pop quiz! Who has scored the first 50-point game of the season? Was it Kevin Durant? LeBron James? Carmelo Anthony?
NO! It’s MO WILLIAMS!
Who has the franchise record for the most points ever in a game for the Minnesota Timberwolves? Was it Kevin Love? Kevin Garnett? Latrell Sprewell?
NO! It’s MO WILLIAMS!
Mo Williams seriously scored 52 points in a win over Indiana...
Gene Bess became the first college basketball coach to reach 1,200 victories, directing Three Rivers Community College to a 91-51 victory over State Fair on Thursday night.

So when I approached JB about returning to the Razzball fold, my first suggestion was to do something on wing players. As any veteran fantasy hoops junkie knows, the dudes with the SG/SF designation are superly dooperly useful. Most teams have multiple non-PG and non-PF slots, plus you have the UTIL slots. Old-timers have some fond memories of crazy Latrell Sprewell, a member of...
What an idiot. That’s clearly Latrell Sprewell. – – – – – Also see … PICTURE: Moron thinks LeBron James is Derrick Rose PICTURE: Moron thinks she met Dwight Howard (photo via @joeyharvey)

Those who know me will know that this is my final week living in Milwaukee, which is a very sad thing. Apparently Milwaukee native Latrell Sprewell won’t be as sad as others to see me go.
On Monday night I was out at the bar Rogue’s with several friends when I spotted Sprewell and his trademark dreadlocks hanging out across the way from me. Being the sports journalist I am...
Serbian shooting guard Bogdan Bogdanović is projected as an early second-round pick in this year’s NBA draft and is averaging nearly 15 points per game for his club team, KK Paritzan.
Yet Bogdanović’s season quickly turned ugly in a recent game against rival KK FMP when his head coach briefly choked him before sending him to the locker room.
Duško Vujošević, who is in...
A much deserved honor for Golden State Warriors Swingman Andre Iguodala on Monday afternoon as he was named to the NBA All Defensive First Team.
Iguodala is the first Warrior since Latrell Sprewell in 1993-94 to be named as an All-Defensive selection and the first Warrior since Nate “The Great” Thurmond in 1970-71 to be named to the first team.
Iguodala came over to the Warriors...
For the first time since Latrell Sprewell in 1995, the Golden State Warriors have a player named by the fans as a starter in the All-Star game. On the strength of his season averages of 23.5 points, 9.2 assists and 4.6 rebounds to go with 1.88 steals and 37.9 minutes in 40 games, Stephen Curry will make his first appearance in the NBA All-Star game on February 16 in New Orleans...
