Usually, I don’t talk about sports on this blog, but watching the Warriors always makes me mad for some reason. It takes a special kind of person to be a fan of the Warriors. Someone who can stomach bad basketball, horrid coaching and an even worse front office.
The season is basically over for the Warriors. They are down by 20 going into the 4th against the Phoenix Suns. Nellie and Jackson has been ejected. So, naturally, the stand-in coach Keith Smart, should put in the rookies to give them some burn. Does that happen? No!
Who does he roll out there but Ellis, Crawford, Azubuike, Maggette and Turiaf. What the hell is he trying to do? Are they going to play team-ball and try to give the gung-ho effort of coming back to win a meaningless game? If you’ve seen these players play, besides Turiaf, team-play is not in their vocabulary. So, rather then giving twelve minutes of experience to the lotto picks on the bench, we get to watch a bunch of veterans with no upside hoist up shots in a game with no meaning.
Great job, guys. Thanks for turning the clock back and reminding us of the previous decade of suck we’ve already lived through.
