  1. Single-A Giants to play as San Jose Churros

    I dunno, I’m quite fond of my LV Cheese Steaks cap. The option for wit or witout was great. I knew I should’ve bought both of those caps.

    How is that not fair? That’s how it goes in the NBA. The Warriors were dog crap for DECADES. Any team could conceivably do what they did (granted they had a TON of luck, as everyone wants to point out). But like half the league is looking at the current situation and basically just folding. There were more teams tanking for draft positioning this year than pretty much ever before. Blame them for how trash the league is. Teams like the Jazz, Raptors, and Pelicans are great because they’re trying to build despite losing guys to bigger destinations and the fact that there is a lot of consolidated talent. :censored:, even the Kings backed their way to success at one point. All this talk about how the Warriors are “ruining basketball” comes across as salty as can be.

    How? Lebron speaks his mind probably more than any other super star athlete ever has and that can rub some people the wrong way, but how is he a “phony asswipe”? And even if he was, why does that even matter? On top of being at least top two all time, the dude is an absolute model citizen. No record, very family oriented and you never hear anything negative about his home life, is one of the hardest working athletes I have EVER seen, ect. What the hell more do people want from these guys?

    There we go. The Warriors have this frustrating tendency to just seem to turn it off for games at a time. It looks like they’re done with that, though. At least I hope.

    Seriously. The Warriors, Lebron, and now the Rockets are the only not worthless parts of this league. Why should they be indicted for everyone else sucking? The Rockets legit made it a mission to gun for the Warriors to the point where their GM said that he was completely obsessed with beating. the Warriors. You know what the majority of the rest of the league did? Bitched about how it was too hard. I can’t stand the Rockets but I respect the hell outta what they’ve done. I thought there was ZERO shot they would compete, and they’ve gone about as nuts as they can. This is EXACTLY what you want to see in sports. Teams take on the challenge, step up their game, and match. Born sut back and whine about how every Me else is making it too hard.

    But the Warriors just completely ruined basketball, right?
  7. 2018 NBA Post Season

    Oh no, on the contrary. I’m giving credit where credit is due. He did what it took to win. That’s more than can be said for anyone else so far. The Rockets may be team #2, we’ll see.

    Yeah I think Boston kinda skates by on this one because the Dodgers helped them correct what were probably a few huge mistakes on their part. Crawford wasn’t working out at all for them, Becket was costing them a fortune (I believe) and there were even issues with Adrian Gonzalez fitting in with the culture. They’ve given out a TON of bad money in recent history.

    And that’s what the league ultimately went for. Look guys, I’m not saying it wasn’t the right move, I’m saying it’s a move that the NBA doesn’t make if not for an extra push from Lebron. He was desperate at that point and threw a Hail Mary. It just so happend it was caught in the endzone. I can’t blame the guy for doing it, hell, it worked! I’m simply saying that there’s always going to be a narrative, but the only one that really matters in this current four year stretch is Warriors 2 Rings, Lebron 1 ring. Boom. How bout that?

    And, just to be clear, that seventh tech wouldn’t have happened had Lebron not gone to the league office and complained a full day later. Point I’m making is, none of that makes you enjoy your 2016 title any less, just like none of that other crap makes 2015 and 2017 less enjoyable for me. That nonsense Lebron pulled had me HEATED for about 5 minutes. Now I’m more just annoyed they lost, regardless of why. I had totally forgotten about that whole incident until earlier today because the residuals of it didn’t even matter. So why do people focus so much on dumb crap like this in the first place?
  11. 2018 NBA Post Season

    Well, to be fair, the scenarios are pretty different. Love and Kyrie went down with bad luck injuries that could’ve really happened to anyone. Draymond missed game 5 because Lebron James complained to the league a full day after the fact and the league caved. And in that game 5 loss, the Warriors also lost Andrew Bogut, who was a pretty big piece of what they did. Sure, the Warriors have had some “luck” along the way, but why should anyone care? That’s sports. Either way, all this talk about the “legitimacy” of titles comes across as more jealousy and hate than serving any actual substantive purpose.

    So, you could look at this scenario and think it's some nefarious plan to sink another competing organization. Or, you can see it as a case of there being very little correlation between wealth and intelligence.

    Well, to be fair, neither did we. That was as much of a surprise to us as it was to the league. I wouldn't say the issues Sacramento has had were the league's fault, but it sure says a lot about the league's vetting process for them to speak of inevitability when you haven't even taken a cursory look at the finances yet. You would figure they'd have learned their lesson on that one by now. Either way, the optics are poor and makes them look pretty second-rate to keep making these same mistakes if you ask me. I'm not sure if I'm emphasizing enough the connection a certain person has to this team and how much of a headache it’s been. A King sized headache, in fact. You want to know what caused Whitman and others to turn and back away? That’s pretty much your answer. It’s a total piss off because those who actually work on this project on a daily basis are shouldering a lot of the blame for what is being done by people who are ultimately figureheads and do (other than finance the thing, and yes I know how important that is), literally, NOTHING with this team other than cause problems. It’s almost as if they want their particular level of dysfunction to spread to the rest of the city and it’s actually painful to witness. Sigh, we’re so :censored:ing close to this thing being viable, too. All it takes is some stability. Barring any more REAL stupidity, that’ll come.
