Fear the Deer: Bucks make a long-term investment in Giannis Antetokounmpo

Last season for the Milwaukee Bucks was underwhelming to say the least. They finished with a record of 33-49, missed the playoffs after giving the Chicago Bulls a tough first round matchup the previous season, and the Greg Monroe experiment has not worked out thus far. However, there was one bright spot from last season […]

Five best free agents available after the madness

NBA free agency is sort of like Christmas for kids. They get up, tear open presents at a clip that suggests they barely know what they’re getting, and then within a fairly short period of time, it’s over and you have the rest of the day where they sit around wondering where all the excitement […]

A new era begins for Golden State Warriors, but one is also ending

There will be plenty of time for Golden State Warriors fans to anticipate the future made possible by Kevin Durant’s announcement on the 4th of July, but let’s take a moment to acknowledge that this is not solely a continuation of what the Warriors have built to this point.

Ghosts of 40 years ago turn on the Golden State Warriors

This is a column I’ve dreaded having to write for this whole season, especially since the Golden State Warriors went down 3-1 to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

In Game 7, humility may be path to redemption for Warriors

It took me a while to figure out when I’d had that feeling before. As I watched the Golden State Warriors stumble through the first quarter of Game 6 of the NBA Finals, it finally hit me: Game 7 of the 2002 World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the (then-) Anaheim Angels. I’ll get to the baseball parallel, but first, the Warriors seem […]

The Golden State Warriors play good defense, they shoot 3-pointers at a historic clip, and they have possibly the best bench in the history of basketball.
