Mark Jackson


The Warriors make their first playoff appearance in several years this season. Mark Jackson has them back in the dance. Although I think they have a nice young nucleus of players (led by future All-Star Steph Curry), I dont believe they play playoff basketball. The Warriors' defensive efforts are lackluster, although they can score with anybody. It is for that reason I don't give em much of a chance to win this one over a balanced Nuggets team. Golden State will steal 1 game, then bow out in 5.

Could be an interesting series, but I see the Nuggets winning this in six.

Two teams that really get up and down the court at a fast pace. It should be an entertaining series to watch, but I believe that the Nuggets will just have a bit more fire power.

Didn't watch the game but saw HB dropped 8. Lol.

Predicting a 30 pt game from him this series.

Ty Lawson IMHO is the best UNC player in the NBA. Green is a close second.

I picked golden state not because I really think they will win but a lower seed will win at least one series this round and I don't feel confident about Denver for some reason i can't put into words.

David Lee Out For Season With Torn Hip Flexor

David Lee tore his right hip flexor in Saturday's loss by the Golden State Warriors to the Denver Nuggets and is out for the season.

While x-rays on Saturday were negative, an MRI on Sunday revealed the complete Grade 3 tear.

Lee was playing his first game in the NBA Playoffs after being in the league since 2005.

The Warriors are in their first postseason since 2007 and trail the Nuggets 1-0.

Its gotta suck to go 8 years before you get in your first playoff game, and then get hurt in your first one and miss the rest of the playoffs. I updated the Warriors new starting lineup.

Luckily for the Warriors Carl Landry is a very good backup. It's still a major blow, however.

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
