Park: There Has Never Been Anyone Like Draymond Green

Draymond Green

When you think of all the great players the league has seen, it’s inevitable that comparisons arise sooner or later. Kobe Bryant and LeBron James were and forever will be compared to Michael Jordan. Kevin Durant and Dirk Nowitzki are often compared to Larry Bird. Chris Paul to Isiah Thomas. Dwight Howard to Bill Russell. The list goes on and on and when great players come along, you can almost always correlate them to the greats from past years based on their

Hubbard: Warriors add silliness to NBA season

Curry12

The good news for the San Antonio Spurs is that Tim Duncan, who had soreness in his right knee, was unable to play Monday night when the second-best team in the NBA lost to the best team by 30 points. The bad news is that to compete with the Golden State Warriors, the Spurs would have needed the 25-year-old Tim Duncan who averaged 25.5 points, 12.7 rebounds, 2.5 blocks and won the 2002 Most Valuable Player award. The 39-year-old Duncan, who

Ladewski: Warriors Gave Spurs Plenty to Think About

LMA

OAKLAND — The Spurs-Warriors showdown had been hyped as the most anticipated regular-season NBA game in decades, possibly ever, but it was remarkable only for its lack of drama. Stephen Curry and his supporting cast overwhelmed the Spurs every which way, 120-90, and the numbers didn’t lie. The Champs never trailed. The score was tied tied for all of 51 seconds. But, ‘c’mon, it was an NBA regular-season game in the dead of January. What did it mean, really? It means Gregg Popovich

VIDEO: How can anyone argue that Warriors are bad for NBA?

Curry

Sometimes you want to kick the TV. Sometimes you want to hug it. The latter happened last night during the long-awaited first meeting of the season between the Warriors and the Spurs, and the former happened this morning when ESPN was debating whether Golden State’s lack of competitive games was hurting the NBA. After all, we wait weeks and weeks for Cavs-Warriors and Spurs-Warriors and what do we get? A bunch of 30-point blowouts. But why is that considered bad? When you have

Tweet of the Night: Danny Green says two words to show he is ready for the Golden State Warriors

Danny Green

The Golden State Warriors have the best record in the league at 40-4 and are on pace to match the single greatest regular season record of all-time – 72-10 – set by the Chicago Bulls back in the 1995-1996 season. As impressive as that sounds, they are somehow only up by two games in the standings thanks to the greatness of the San Antonio Spurs, who own the second best record in the league at 38-6.

Sprung: Mozgov’s Meager Minutes May Be Costing Him Millions

Timofey-Mozgov

Where has Timofey Mozgov’s playing time gone?  Just over a year after being traded from Denver to Cleveland for two first-round picks, the 7-1 Russian has played at least 20 minutes in just 14 of his 37 games this season. Averaging just 17.8 minutes, Mozgov has reached double figures in points just seven times and has yet to record a double-double. He is playing strong defense when given the opportunity, but it just doesn’t seem like there’s enough court time for him. It’s all the more
