Stephen Curry emerged as one of the best guards in the league last season, making his first All-Star team and taking the Golden State Warriors to the playoffs. His 24 points per game were seventh best in the league, and Curry led the NBA with 261 3-pointers in the regular season — 38 more than any other player. In an interview on the Dan Patrick Show, Curry said that he’s a better offensive player than four-time MVP LeBron James.
Patrick: Who’s the better offensive player, you or LeBron?
Curry: A better offensive player, me or LeBron? That’s the first time I’ve ever been asked that question. Me.
Gotta be, right?
I don’t know. I’d assume you would think [that]. You’re a pure shooter. He can score, you can, too, but I think that, you know what, the correct answer is probably that LeBron is a better scorer but I…
The Warriors decide that Steve Kerr is the right head coach for this team going forward. Sadly, I am not so sure about this. I want to be excited, but I am worried.
Kerr is just like Mark Jackson. Former NBA guard who also did broadcasting before making the Warriors his first head coaching job. Granted, Kerr has front office experience but this is still a big step into the unknown for both sides.
The Warriors took the Clippers to the limit under Mark Jackson.
I don’t know the ins and outs of why the coaching staff was going through changes this year. But from what I have seen from the outside, Mark Jackson is a good coach and deserves to remain as the Warriors’ coach.
There were rumors about his departure at season’s end and I wasn’t sure where that came from. If it’s internal, then I can’t really have much say with that. But if it’s purely on production, the team would be crazy to let him go. Players have voiced their support for him and I hope the team keeps him.
Are the Warriors going to call themselves the “San Francisco Warriors?”
Golden State Warriors president and CEO Rick Welts wants to know if the fans would be OK with the idea of the team calling themselves the San Francisco Warriors again.
In an interview with ESPN, Welts says he wants to ask the fans to see if a name change would be something they would favor.
“We’re very curious what our fans think of that,” Welts told ESPN.com. “I couldn’t imagine making that decision in the very near future, but we definitely want to see what our fans prefer.”
This comes following the news of the team purchasing land in Mission Bay in San Francisco for a new arena. Also, the team had previous played in San Francisco and went by that name from 1962-71. But since 1971, they were known as the Golden State Warriors.
Looking at the replay, yes there was contact from Chris Paul on Stephen Curry’s hip. Did it alter his shot? Probably. But I don’t think at that moment you can call a foul. I don’t even think in real time you could see a foul there. It looked clean.
The problem you want to complain about is the shot selection. Instead of going for a drive to tie the game, Curry settled for a tough three.
Instead of trying to take the shot, the Warriors could have thrown the ball back to the in-bounder Andre Iguodala for a shot.
When I first heard of this idea of playing between Pier 30-32, I thought it was silly. I am not a scientist, but I was pretty convinced that the arena would sink. The location is bad. Now we have news that they are scrapping the idea.
They are moving their plans that aren’t directly at the water. It’s still close, but at least the fear of it sinking won’t cross my mind.
But of course, I would prefer that they stay where they are. There is a major inconvenience that will come if they play in San Francisco. The travel and public transportation would be a nightmare. Plus, the prices of tickets will surely price out fans like me.
