Whew. It was great just to see Steph get to his feet, let alone return to the game, after that Jerry McGuire moment. Although I’m not a fan of the decision to let him return. Doctors are not infallible, the game was totally meaningless and the deficit already big. I would have liked to see Warriors management step up like adults in this situation.

That’s gotta be hard. Continue reading
Finally. Am I the only one who feels like it’s been two years since last season?
The Warriors open the season as -3.5 favorites against the visiting Houston Rockets. Really, favorites? This line is quite mysterious to me. Maybe it’s because the Warriors are suiting up more than six players, and the bookies don’t know how to handicap that!
