Kobe Bryant’s going to retire and I’m glad the villain is gone

This news didn’t come as a surprise as we saw Kobe Bryant fall apart and become a bandaged player that he once was. His shots were falling short and his mobility was limited. He has given his body everything he could in 20 years of basketball and this has become a sad ending to a storied career.

But I don’t care.

As much as I know and understand how great of a basketball player he is, I honestly don’t have any feelings toward this news or anything else right. I knew it was sad when his decline began a few years ago, but now it just feels like it’s been dragged out.

Growing up in the Bay Area as a Warriors fan, perception of basketball was different than the rest of the world. I wasn’t used to seeing my team win. I wasn’t used to seeing great superstars come through Oakland and staying. I didn’t think my team was good enough and they weren’t. I always had to look up at the Lakers and see them winning all the time and I didn’t like it. And Kobe Bryant was a big part of that. So in an essence, I didn’t like him. Continue reading

Celebrating and appreciating the Warriors’ 16-0 record

Throughout this entire streak, I think about how long I have been a Warriors fan. I couldn’t even believe that this team I cheered for has accomplished this great record.

The Warriors were the laughing stock of the league. Bad draft picks and bad coaching. Then just last year, it all finally clicked. It happened all so fast and now starting this season, the Warriors have just set the NBA record for best start to the season.

Having seen all the ups and downs of the Warriors from years past, I still can’t grasp the idea that this is the same team I cheered for. But watching this team now and how they’re playing, I’m still on “Cloud 9.” This is like a dream I still don’t want to wake up from. And maybe I’m OK accepting it as that.

It’s that beautiful. It’s that wonderful. I will hold on to this forever.

What the Warriors got right and wrong with their ‘The City’ throwbacks

The Warriors wore their “The City” throwbacks on Tuesday night and it looked great. In fact, anytime they wear this uniform, it’s beautiful.

But there were some things I didn’t like about it. As I mentioned before, the logo on the front looked terrible due to the fabric of the patch. Because of that, it looked like a different color from the actual jersey. And it varied from the angle of the lighting.

But why are they required to wear a patch instead of the stencil of the previous designs?

Cam Newton can keep doing touchdown celebration dances

Cam Newton did nothing wrong. He scored and he danced. But no matter how many haters there are, he had the perfect response. In fact, this response dates back to The U when they were running wild scoring a million touchdowns a game. You want them to stop celebrating? Don’t let them score. Until then, Cam is going to enjoy the game and dance and dab!
