I’ve waited a long time for Harrison Barnes to grow up and assert himself….to inflict his talents on the game. This team has needed a third scorer for a long time now and he’s been the obvious candidate to do so. You can’t rely on Green for this, he does too many other things. And yet Harrison disappeared in the most crucial moments of his now 4th season. His timidity is still a defining characteristic. Goodbye Mr Barnes. Feel free to try out the market.
Even though the Warriors lost in their drive to wrap up a spectacular season, you came through in the clutch and painted a Picasso with words. Any reader can feel the pain, the suffering, the lingering effects of the wounds of a loss, a thousand cuts that surely will be slow to heal. So close; yet, so far away!
Curry played that game and most of last 1/4 season like a man self medicating. He was zone out. I sense a bigger story of JaMarcus Russell size. Just a few painkillers….
This is the new format? Why are the old timers not posting?
I was struck by how thoroughly Ron Adams got schooled by Lebron and company.
They seemed to be able to get the dubs into an ill advised defensive rotation at will.
How many times was Curry guarding Lebron on the top of the key?
After 280 beats on 180 for three quarters it’s little wonder Curry had no fourth quarter pep in his step.
