The Bogut-Lee Frontline: Another dominating performance from Bogut and Lee against the golden boys of Utah, Favors and Kanter. This time in their home gym. If you think that’s easy to do, you haven’t been following Jazz boxscores.
And in general, this furthers the point that I made in my Thunder recap. Bogut and Lee are at their best when playing against big lineups. They are far less effective playing together against smaller players who stretch the floor. When the Warriors are facing small lineups like the Thunder’s, Mark Jackson should rethink his rotations.

Preseason has ended, and I’ve already participated in three CBS prize league (for cashish) fantasy drafts. I now have a few more players to add to my original sleepers and busts post: Continue reading
I’m referring, of course, to the Milwaukee Bucks. Continue reading
Brandon Rush: We’ve been hearing a lot lately — from people on his payroll, like Larry Riley, Rick Barry and Andrew Bogut — that Joe Lacob has been spending money, and is willing to spend money, to win.

One thing this trade is not is shocking. It’s something we all knew was coming from day one, when Joe Lacob told us that running teams can’t win in the playoffs, that the “architecture” of the team needed fixing, and that the culture needed changing. And that Stephen Curry and David Lee were the core of the Warriors, and Monta Ellis something else. Continue reading
Yes! This is what we’re supposed to be rooting for, right? Getting Joe Lacob his lottery pick back? If not, I’m confused. Continue reading
The scrap-end of this Warriors team has apparently not gotten the memo. Don’t they know how badly Joe Lacob wants his lottery pick back? Continue reading
Did the Warriors win these last two games because they suddenly decided to play with energy? Because they suddenly felt like competing?
Or was it because of something else? Continue reading
Mark Jackson did everything possible to lose this game, and in the end he succeeded in spectacular fashion. He spoonfed this loss to his Warriors team. Continue reading
