Random thoughts: Talented, selfless, champions 8:30 PM Here are some random thoughts for a Wednesday: • Great talent that played great together, the NBA-champion Golden State Warriors. • Selfless? This suggests so: trailing 41-39 in Game 5 of the NBA Finals Monday, Coach Steve Kerr put a lineup on the floor that previously had never played together as a unit: Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Kevin Durant, David West and Andre Iguodala. It was the Warriors’ 251st different five-man lineup this season and that group outscored the Cavaliers 22-4 and the…

Warriors may have already peaked and predicting their future is insane Warriors may have already peaked and predicting their future is insane It is Tuesday, the Golden State Warriors are still champions of the three-dimensional universe, and the only hot takes out there are: 1) How all the narratives suggesting danger, egomania, role confusion, injury and incapacity, hubris and general ruination were so hilariously wrong from Christmas onward. 2) How the Warriors can only get better as the rest of the National Basketball Association recedes in shame and degradation. Which…

“He wasn’t an alchemist, or a hero. He was a librarian, and a dreamer. He was a reader, and the unsung expert on a long-lost city no one cared a thing about.” Rating: 4.5/5 stars It’s been twelve hours since I’ve turned the last page of Strange the Dreamer– and I am still reeling with the indignation of the conclusion, and the beauty of Laini Taylor’s work.

You buy a jersey, basketball for them to sign.. 😀 They will break up the team.. Sooner or later.. because of salary cap. Have to make it fair for other teams, unless the owner want to pay millions in luxury taxes….
