Steph and Ayesha Curry to appear on HBO’s ‘Ballers’

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 16:03:40 UT

Warriors guard Steph Curry gets in a conversation with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in a recent trailer for Johnson’s successful HBO series “Ballers.” Johnson plays a sports agent and former NFL player, Spencer Strasmore, in the series, which is set in Miami. The third season of “Ballers” is scheduled to debut on July 23. In the clip, Curry is coming off a private jet with his wife Ayesha. Johnson can be heard saying, “MVP” and Ayesha responds with “What’s up Spence?” How much Curry will be involved in the series is unknown. Typically the series features NFL players like Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, who has appeared several times. San Francisco



Could Silicon Valley be a key in keeping the Warriors together?

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green (23) and forward Andre Iguodala (9) celebrate during the second half of Game 1 of basketball’s NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Oakland, Calif., Thursday, June 1, 2017. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez) Two titles in three years, a new arena on the horizon, and a team chemistry that could rival the world’s best alchemies, who wouldn’t want to be a Warrior? However, there’s only so much money the Warriors can stuff under their salary cap, and several players, such as superstars Kevin Durant and Steph Curry, are going to command top dollar. The question in the next couple of weeks will be how



What we can learn from the Warriors formula of success

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 22:43:53 UT

Kevin Durant addresses fans at the victory parade on June 15, 2017 in Oakland, California. The Warriors did what was expected. They won the NBA Championship. However, plenty of “Super” teams have failed in every sport. Team USA basketball teams have not captured gold every time. A stacked Lakers team with Dwight Howard couldn’t deliver. But the Warriors fulfilled their destiny despite a mid-season injury to Kevin Durant and coach Steve Kerr’s continued and mystifying back ailment. Doing what’s expected is the very definition of pressure, and yet the Warriors transcended that hurdle as well. They do it with their emphasis on passing, establishing roles, and unselfishness. It’s something we can



Why the Warriors lost game 4 of the NBA Finals

CLEVELAND, OH – JUNE 09: Richard Jefferson #24 of the Cleveland Cavaliers collides with Klay Thompson #11 of the Golden State Warriors in the first half in Game 4 of the 2017 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena on June 9, 2017 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Let’s do what LeBron James suggests

Wed, 7 Jun 2017 18:03:39 UT

Sports writer and commentator Michael Wilbon reflected Thursday on the racist vandalism that occurred at LeBron James’ Los Angeles home. Someone had scrawled the N-word on the gate of James’ Brentwood house. Wilbon, who is African-American, remembered a quote he had heard about being a black male in America, and he said it’s akin to having another full time job. As a white male, I have no idea what African American men and women experience on a daily basis. I don’t get followed in stores because someone thinks I’m going to steal something. When I apply for jobs or housing, no one discounts my application because of my race or



JaVale McGee huge in Warriors game 3 win plus other impressions

Mon, 22 May 2017 15:12:55 UT

Spurs Warriors Game 3 The Warriors looked a little sloppy, particularly at the beginning of game 3, however, Golden State’s long passing and JaVale McGee’s surprising scoring fueled the Warriors third straight win in the series. Here are some other impressions. 1. Warriors tried to get the struggling Klay Thompson going early by passing the ball to him down low and then clearing out. However Thompson missed the turnaround jumper. 2. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich did say that LaMarcus Aldridge played too tentatively in game 2, but apparently, he was really angered by Pau Gasol’s lack of defense. Gasol was benched to start game 3. 3. Kevin Durant seems to



Steve Kerr’s leadership allows for the team to possibly succeed without him

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 01:03:23 UT

So how will the Warriors do with coach Steve Kerr sidelined with a painful back ailment for possibly the entire playoffs? Because of the way Kerr has laid the foundation, the Warriors are set up to succeed even if he doesn’t come back. “At the coach’s meetings and his practices, it’s not his voice 80 percent of the time,” Warriors president of basketball operations Bob Myers said Wednesday on 95.7 The Game’s Afternoon Delight with Greg Papa and Bonta Hill. “It’s a horizontal leadership here, not as vertical as it as some places.” For that reason, handing over the reigns to replacement coach Mike Brown won’t be as much as a



Do the Warriors really need Kevin Durant?

Fri, 31 Mar 2017 00:08:26 UT

Are the Warriors just as good without Kevin Durant as they are with him? On Wednesday, the Warriors notched their most impressive win of the season, over the rival Spurs in San Antonio after being down 22 points in the first quarter. The Warriors came back to win by a comfortable 12-point margin. Over the last three quarters, they smothered the fully healthy Spurs defensively and scored at will. The season-defining victory punctuated a nine-game win streak, all while Durant is sidelined with a bone bruise and sprained knee ligament. Some will say the Warriors were utterly lost when Durant first got injured on the last day of February. The



Why the Warriors are now winning without Kevin Durant

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 18:26:22 UT

The Warriors appeared lost when Kevin Durant went down with a sprained knee and knee bruise four weeks ago. When they first played without Durant they appeared lost. But now, the team has figured out. Over the last two weeks, the Warriors are undefeated going 8-0. So what’s made the difference? Here are the key reasons for the Warriors’ revival 1. Steph Curry has increased his assists and his three point percentage to nearly 50 percent during the winning streak. Curry is clearly thriving running the team and being the first option offensively. 2. The bench is playing much better, particularly sixth man Andre Igoudala. He’s shooting 60% from the

Warriors fueled by the kids: Dubs make holiday visit to SF kids

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 16:17:30 UT

Warriors fueled by the kids!Andre Iguodala in front of his own cutout. The NBA’s best basketball team spent last Friday spreading holiday cheer to a number of kids at the Bay View Opera House in San Francisco. Players and coaches boarded buses and fought traffic to and from Oakland to build Christmas ornaments, play basketball, take pictures and play ping pong with a number of children from one of the more depressed areas of the city. One gleeful participant included San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee who also got a kick out of meeting players. Lee is apparently a huge Warriors fan. He also exhibited his ping pong acumen in a



Klay Thompson receives a paper airplane challenge

Fri, 2 Dec 2016 17:36:03 UT

Warriors All-Star forward Klay Thompson went viral when he made a paper air plane at a news conference and then sent it soaring into the media throng. The video, which was first posted by the AP’s Janie McCauley went viral. Now, Thompson has received a challenge from an organization that is semi-professional with paper airplane construction. It’s not Boeing, but the Bald Eagle camps, want to challenge Thompson to a airplane contest. Who knows if the ultra competitive Thompson will take them up on it. “Usually our coaches have the best air planes,” said Bob McFarlane, founder of Bald Eagle Camps, which teach kids and coaches leadership techniques among other



What’s behind the Warriors win streak?

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 18:07:57 UT

The Golden State Warriors were blasted by the Lakers on Nov. 4 and then they played eight games before meeting the Lakers again on Nov. 23, which included a four-game trip to the East. The Warriors won all eight, which didn’t include the rematch with Los Angeles on Wednesday night. So what was the key to Golden State’s success during the win streak? Here they are. 1. The Warriors defense picked up, particularly in blocked shots. Last year, with supposedly a better defensive group, the Warriors averaged 6.07 blocks a game. This year, they are better, averaging 6.1 blocks a game. 2. While the Warriors don’t have a true rim
