Link to my Tuesday Warriors column:
I am sure that Jackson has taken note…and wonders how his team would be different with Kerr as Coach, as he wanted…nice read and nice game to watch. I had been anticipating this game since the season started…feeling good about having been a fan for some 45 years…
It’s one game and the Warriors won in convincing fashion, but what impressed me most was the aftermath: all around respect and sportsmanship, from coaches to players, no gloating by the Warriors, no excuses from the Spurs, honestly giving the Warriors the credit they deserve. A HUGE contrast from the way LeBron and his underlings conduct themselves.
Warriors remind me of another Bay Area team — the early ’80s 49ers. Both teams played a refreshingly unorthodox style and both could kick butt when and if necessary. Curry and Montana have a lot in common.
Thorough dismantling of the other truly elite team in the NBA by the Warriors. As I was watching it I was so caught up in the spectacle I did not notice the score until the announcer said “Don’t look now but the lead is 30!”
Yes, it is just one game. And teams and coaches make adjustments, but for all the hype, all the expectations, that was a sound trouncing by the Warriors.
Said it before and I will continue to say it, they are the best example of what a true team is from top to bottom, on the roster, the coaching staff and in the front office. And a pleasure to watch as a fan.
Why I Like Chronicle Better than Press Democrat-
Can you ever imagine the Chronicle posting the attached photo spread to your column?
The text under Frame 1- WOW! Really?
Eighteen frames? I count five repeated images. Must be ‘really good pictures’, I guess.
The spurs dont play their good players for tough games during the regular season. Remember when popovich famously rested his starters vs Lebron and the Heat a few years ago? Its how they keep their aging big 3 fresh for the playoffs. It was a dominant win but i wouldnt look very deeply at it.
Been away for a bit. Now that I’m back I notice a change in linking to your blog. Used to be I clicked on the title and everything was there to enjoy, story and comments. Apologies if this was already explained, but now I need to click on the story title, which then allows me click on a link to the story. Interlaced in the story are pictures, ads, etc. When I finish the story and want to read comments, I have to link back to the original screen, then scroll down. Don’t like change.
Feelgood, you like the Chronicle and think that crappy, poorly edited rag with thousands upon thousands of click-bait photo spreads is better than the PD???
I prefer reading papers that use big words and concise articles; you’ll find neither in the gutter crawl the Chron has become…
I subscribe to both the Chron and the PD, and although the Chron has a better sports section, they cannot seem, in this day and age of digital printing, to report on a game until two days after it’s over.
So if you wanted to read about Monday’s incredible win vs the Spurs, you have to wait until Wed.
The day after the Giants won their last Series title, we lucky Santa Rosans got to read about how badly the team was trounced in Game 6. It annoys me no end. The Chron acts like Santa Rosa is close to the Oregon border, not a mere 50 miles north of SF.
You’ve got a point but still, that page is outrageously flawed.
And yeah, the Chron web pages are filled with junk content, albeit properly labelled.
