He is completely clueless.

I believe the Bulls should try to trade him ... as soon as he returns from (yet) another injury.

Not sure if you've read anything since posting, but here is the Cliff Notes version.

He got an elbow from a teammate in their 1st practice. I was hoping it was from Joakim on purpose for being a p***y.

He is being sued by an "ex-gf" claiming she was gang-raped. He says that it was a consensual group session and that she was mad because she wanted to be reimbursed for a sex toy she bought for the session.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm pretty sure I've never thought about being aroused in the same room with some of my naked buddies and a dildo all flying around. Eek

"practice", "teammate". i smell a cover up.

he shoudl just come out and admit that he had a dildo smacked into his eye a little too hard.
The sex incident happened two years ago. Although, I guess something could have smacked him in the face at the time...

19-0... utah took them to the limit, but the warriors' defense just locks down in crunch time. golden state is the most exciting team in all of sports right now... simply must-see tv.

Truly fun to watch the W's. Explosive offense and suffocating defense day in, day out. Truly a great team. 1-0 on a long 7 game road trip.

Go Warriors.
Surprised no chatter about Kobe announcing his retirement at end of the season. Glad to see this will be his last year. Like many it seems he tried to hang on a season or so too long, but he was a great player. I'm sure the Lakers are glad he is calling it quits, so they can finally get on with the business of rebuilding. Saw an interesting nugget on ESPN I believe yesterday. Kobe has missed more shots in his career than John Stockton attempted.

I'm curious as to how Kobe has been perceived these last few seasons by Lakers fans.

I believe Duncan and Kobe came out same year or within a year or two of one another. Very different styles, each one of the greats at their position. Which of the two was the player of his era (I don't think there is anyone else in the discussion; Lebron came into the league years later)?
23-0 with 28% of the season complete

What's almost as amazing is that San Antonio is only 4.5 games back.

I figure GS will be 28-0 by Christmas Day. Someone in the NBA scheduling department used their crystal ball well: on Christmas Day the Warriors play the Cavs. I have no idea what the outcome will be, but it should be a fun game to watch.

It's been sad seeing him play so poorly. He looks ok physically so I got to think his shooting will improve but it looks historically bad right now. I don't mind it though as it would be great to keep our pick and be in the running for Ben Simmons.

Kobe has been a pleasure to watch all these years. A true competitor and the closest thing we have had to MJ which says it all. My basketball friends and I have been having the Kobe vs. Tim Duncan debate and I would take Kobe hands down. Obviously biased but I just think his highs were higher than Duncan. I would take that over longevity anytime. Plus I think Duncan has really benefited by the system all these years and the more consistent talent. Both all time greats though. I have Kobe around 11 all time and Duncan 12-13.
Oh and the Warriors are must see TV right now. I have never routed for a non Lakers team so much in my life. If you love basketball, they are just so fun to watch. Seems like a good group of guys too. I hope they break the Bulls record and roll over everyone in the playoffs.

Welcome aboard GlennK! Come on up for a game sometime... It is the best show in town. Just pinching myself- this team is just a joy to watch. Basketball at its most beautiful.
Shumpert back, Mozgov getting healthy, Kyrie back shortly.

Paul, turn on the Cavs after NYE, and your shoulders will slump.

The only question is, will you come out to Cleveland IF the Warriors make the Finals?

I'll get them. Jack has to come as well, he was my good luck charm last year.
Fun going back and reading my comments on Berserkers about the warriors last year. Considering the historical run the Warriors are on, I guess I am just ahead of my time (you could say the same thing about Premier Cru, but I digress)

May 18 (Paul Battaglia wrote): klay's near max will kick in next year, as will dray's near max, which will be right around the same number. warriors are still in fantastic shape financial wise. they can either dump lee's salary before the trade deadline next year, or they can go over the hard cap for one year, but with the salary cap exploding in the 2016-17 year, they will not be subject to the onerous repeater tax. also, iggy and bogut have interesting contracts in that their salaries are de-escalating. each player will make less money over the next two years than in the previous year. the core has at least a 3 year window to really cement their place in the history of the nba.

May 18 (Bob Hughes wrote): Wow, I thought Alan Rath was the most irrational Golden State fan on the board,but Paul is already talking about them cementing their legacy over the next three years.
So much for waiting for a team to, you know, actually win something before we coronate them

May 18 (Paul Battaglia wrote): didn't say they will... but like the bulls heading into their first finals in the 90s, the pistons heading into their first finals in the 87-88 season (they lost, but only because of a severely sprained ankle suffered by isiah thomas in game 6), or the shaq-kobe lakers once phil arrived, you can tell that this warriors team is destined for greatness. this year's team is the 3rd best team i have ever seen in my life: 95-96 bulls, 85-86 celtics, this year's warriors squad. right now, no team can match up with their defense and shooting.

May 19 (Glenn Levine wrote): the fantasy that this is the third best basketball team of the past 30 years can end any time now.

May 19 (Paul Battaglia wrote): 95-96 bulls, 85-86 celtics, this year's warriors... 3 best teams I have seen in my life. I stand by it.

May 20 (Paul Battaglia wrote): I think half the criticisms of the warriors are from people that must not be watching the games. I watched every single minute of warriors basketball this year- a lot of their supposed "flaws" are in actuality, strengths.

May 20 (Glenn Levine wrote):
I'm not bashing the Ws, I love some aspects of their game. You live on this coast though the past few weeks and hearing about them in historical contexts, c'mon that is just nuts.
They are the best team this year but the stars aligned for them too. Even with all the good mojo they haven't been wiping out opponents. They win 3 championships in 6-7 seasons we can talk about them historically.

May 20 (Paul Battaglia wrote): you hear them talked in historical contexts for one reason- their season was historically great. they haven't been wiping opponents out? they were top 8 in the history of the nba in point differential. of the 7 teams that finished with a higher point differential than them, 6 won the nba title that year. coincidence? i think not.

May 20 (Paul Battaglia wrote): their regular season winning percentage was .817... they are at .818 in the playoffs. you don't need to win 3 championships in 6-7 seasons to cement your place as one of the best teams in history... they win the championship this year, and their body of work over the entire year speaks for itself amongst the greatest teams.

May 21 (Paul Battaglia wrote): one of the three best teams of my life… EOM

May 22 (Paul Battaglia wrote): what do you know.... posted just this morning. has the warriors as the 4th best team EVER. oh, those two teams i said were better... yea, they are the ones ranked ahead of them. maybe i should write for five-thirty-eight. BALL DON'T LIE! http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the ... ng-to-elo/

Go warriors!
And it seems so easy. Last night it seemed like Dallas would at least keep it close. Then I go to grab some firewood and pop another beer and the Mavs are calling timeout and down by like 18. The defending East champions and the team with the second best record in the league were just trashed by them, not even close. Last night I was actually thinking of the 98 Yankees, and the 84 49ers to think if I've seen teams this dominate.

they truly do make it look easy... and i agree about the comparisons to the 84 49ers. not just the ease with which they dominate, but they are simply a joy to watch from an entertainment perspective.
Back in my day, Rick Mahorn, Kurt Rambis, or Bill Laimbeer would've put Steph and his mouth piece into the 3rd row, end of Golden State.

Impossible to compare teams from different eras. They had a great run last season and the Cavs, down two of their 3 best players, pushed them to 6. I'm still not sold they will repeat this year (but I'm also the same guy that thought Cam Newton would be a bust, so...).

A bunch of guys out for the Bulls with actual injuries, and D-chair decides to sit out with "general soreness". Pathetic waste of sperm.
March 27, the Golden State Warriors played the Philadelphia 76ers. Going into the game, Golden State was 65-7 and Philadelphia was 9-64. This was the most lopsided win loss record match in NBA history.

Golden State won by 12 (117-105).

It was the 53th home victory for Golden State. Also, the Golden State backcourt became the first backcourt in NBA history to make 600 three point shots (at the 600 mark, Stephen Curry had 350 and Klay Thompson had 250).
The Cavs need to figure out what to do with Irving.

He may be a great good point guard, but he doesn't know how to be a team player --- at least not on that team. And Dellavadova & Love are better than Irving & Love.
Where are all my fairweather bandwagon toronto fans?

my facebook page about GSW went real quiet for some reason =)
The Spurs will always be my favorite team followed by the Mavericks, but cannot think of a team more fun to watch than the Warriors.
Amazing accomplishment by one of the best group of basketball players and teammates to ever suit up on a court. To be a fan for so long when they were the absolute joke of the NBA, to now tying the Bulls for most wins in a season with the opportunity to break the record, is surreal. Have to pinch myself sometimes.
If the Cavs lose in the finals because of Kyrie's ball-hogedness I'm going to be pissssssed...

I'm not certain why this new coach doesn't do something about it. I'm not certain why LeBron doesn't.

i honestly dont see anyone on the cavs team that can really guard kt, sc or dg.

lebron really is the only one athletic enough but you cant really have him running aroudn the floor just playing d.

dova is just going to get burned, kyrie does his best impression of harden, love is just goign to sit down in the paint. jr smith has a chance but he gets reckless. shumps, if he can get his knee healthy might work but then you still need to worry about dg

No but it might be (one of) the reason(s) they don't GET to the finals... Wink
since the warriors decided to charge a 625% premium on the cost of my regular season tickets for the finals ($280/seat jumps to $1750/seat), we have decided to sell my tickets and book a vacation to Cleveland to attend games 3 & 4. a little presumptuous i know... but on the off chance the Cavs don't make it, I guess we will be driving to Toronto and will be able to have a killer offline with the local crew there! as it currently stands, I am looking forward to seeing Patespo in the 'land!
If Toronto does get in, the tickets will be more expensive than your Warriors ones...

Your equivalent seats at the ACC for round 1 were $450CDN for season's ticket holders.

The $27/seat regular season nosebleeds are $380 for the finals if they get there.

But don't let that stop you! Offline!!

teams are getting crazy with the pricing. i am paying more for my playoffs tickets as i am for my entire season tickets. and they gave STH about 3 weeks notice between the time the playoff ticket pricing was released, and the payable due date. last year, finals were $850/seat... this year, more than double.
As a 33 year season ticket holder with the Lakers, My playoff ticket package has always been more expensive than the regular season package. If I were you, ignore it and go have a great time. Maybe someday I'll get to go the playoffs again. Doesn't look like anytime soon! Going to Kobe's last game tomorrow. Can't believe its been 20!

It seems like 20 weeks.

Plus, damn, 37 ain't old!

Have a great time!

I am hoping the Lakers get past all this and Russell and Randle evolve into all stars and they nail this year's draft.

Hoping it happens Paul! And I love that you said Book a vacation to Cleveland
Last game for Kobe tonight. It didn't end well but what an amazing 20 years it has been as a Laker and Kobe fan. Since Kobe came in the league in 96 the Lakers went to the finals 7 times and won 5. They only missed the playoffs 3 times including this current season. So many great memories during that stretch. It would have been interesting to see how the last 5 years would have gone if Stern didn't overstep and cancel the CP3 trade.

It's been a pretty good stretch for me as a Laker fan. Since I was born the Lakers have been to 17 NBA finals and I got to watch some of the NBA all time greats in Magic, Kareem, Shaq and Kobe. Hopefully they can get back and track and get back in the mix soon. I like some of the young guys and we have a ton of cap room. I know KD likes LA!
Good riddance to one of the biggest assholes and worst teammates the game has ever known. Now if only the front-running Phil Jackson would join him in retirement, the game would lose two of the biggest jerks of all time in one fell swoop. Kobe's retirement charade was vomit-inducing. Guy was a prick to media throughout his career, but his last go-round, he wanted to ham it up to be remembered as Mr. Nice Guy. You won't be missed.
Haha TPE. I get why non Laker fans don't like Kobe. As far as a worst teammates, I do think free agents have not wanted to play with aging Kobe for the last couple of years. That said I have not heard his former teammates not liking to play with him. There is an ex-Laker that is a member of my golf club and he said he loved playing with Kobe. Best thing he liked is how hard he pushed in practice. He did say some guys didn't like that aspect of Kobe but if you wanted to win, you loved that part of Kobe.

I loved that he came to play every single game (except for 1 strange playoff series vs the suns). As far as being an asshole, I don't disagree. I also could not care less though. I'm not his friend.
well said Glenn, and as someone in their mid 30's, born and raised in and around Los Angeles, there will never be another athlete that will leave an impression on me as Kobe has. a sad day for sure, but also a great day to be a Lakers fan, and all i can say to Kobe is "Thank You" for bring the swag back to LA.

The Warriors made the regular season so much fun this year. Their season and the unselfishness of stars like Tim and Dirk late in their careers provided the perfect balance to Kobe ( embarrassing season) dragging the Lakers down the last three years to the worst seasons in the history of the franchise including their time in Minneapolis.

Congrats and unfortunately I know what the flip side of that feels like. My dad and I had a half season package for the 73 Sixers. I honestly cant remember seeing them win that season.
I witnessed Greatness last night at Staples! I didn't sleep much when I got home. Also, congrats to the Warriors. Unbelievable season.

10 years makes a difference =) I hsould know, I need to get me some chest pads when i play bball.

kobe @ same age as curry

guess what, steph was still more efficient last night than kobe in his 81 game, as steph avg 1.917 points per shot attempt. kobe avg 1.760 points per shot attempt.

well yea, if you make more 3 pters per attempt, you'd make more pts per attempt. Not really a relevant comparison.

It'd be very hard to argue against kobe in his 81 pt game. The guy literally carried the lakers to a win.

you could very easily argue that the warriors would have still won this game even if kerr decided to rest curry the final game.

credit where credit is due, guys an ass, a total douche, but in his prime, the guy could ball.
Yeah, Kobe is definitely a first team for our generation. Curry is great and fun to watch. Ultimately, age will catch up to him faster than guys like Kobe and Lebron.
No way. Look at Dell curry

Sharpshooters have very long careers he just might not be as dynamic. But he'd be damn effective still

You mean like Craig Hodges, Jim Paxton, and Steve Kerr type players 5 years from now?
Was just talking with one of my best friends. His son was the shooting guard at Lower Merion High School (Kobe's alma mater) and graduated last year. He was on the varsity squad since his sophomore year. He broke Kobe's career 3 pointer record (168) at Lower Merion last yearSmile

I love watching Steph and never been a huge fan of Kobe, but last night Kobe did exactly what he was supposed to and every fan loved it. I found myself sitting alone on the couch cheering when he hit some of the those 3-pointers. And, they did win. A great way to go out, a great gift to basketball fans, and what a thrill for those who were there.

Steph has shined all season and will continue to do so in the playoffs, but last night was Kobe's.

The Warriors made the regular season so much fun this year. Their season and the unselfishness of stars like Tim and Dirk late in their careers provided the perfect balance to Kobe ( embarrassing season) dragging the Lakers down the last three years to the worst seasons in the history of the franchise including their time in Minneapolis.


Kobe had nothing to do with "dragging" the Lakers down for the past three years. Signing a broken Steve Nash and a bad back Dwight Howard gambling it could work and bring another championship to LA. It didn't work with either of those guys and Kobe got hurt every year. The other glaring reason is the team signs guys that can't play defense as subs.

i would have guess that @ 60mm team salary cap, with kobe having the largest cap hit of any player in the NBA (25MM$) can indeed lead to a player "dragging a team down"
