Hey, since there’s nothing to talk about in football land, unless endless mindless speculation about the good, bad, or ugly surrounding Trey Lance and and his abject failure to be a bona fide star in the NFL while never been the starter is fodder up until the season starts and beyond. So, blah blah, woof woof in the immortal words of Jimi Hendrix.
So, sing on, brother; play on, drummer.
The Warriors? This series with the Memphis Grizzlies sure is a full load of weirdness and anger. I’m a bit surprised there hasn’t been a fight. Yet. From Draymond’s takedown of Clarke (bullshit flagrant 2), to Draymond catching an elbow to the eye that required stitches. This after Gary Payton II was beheaded by Brooks on a layup that resulted in a broken arm and Brooks’ flagrant 2 and suspension (too light) for game 3, to the Ninja Death Grip that Jordan Poole put on Ja Morant’s knee in game 3.
Pay no attention to the knee-to-knee contact by Morant on a play where he collided with Klay Thompson attempting to block Klay’s shot, and you can clearly see Morant limping after it. I mean, its a bone bruise, not a vise-grip puncture. Be that as it may, this is a tough series for the Warriors, and I think Taylor Jenkins was a fool for not going with Steven Adams to start the series. Regardless of how he may clog up the floor with Ja out there, Memphis is getting killed on the boards even with our small line iup out there, and they did damage in game 4 with Adams and JJJ out there.
Would love to see the Warriors try a new lineup and start Otto Porter. Jonathan Kuminga isn’t quite ready for prime time and the Warriors desperately need to get off to a quick start tonight. If only to make the rest of the game less frantic. I hope Iggy makes his way back to the line up soon. This team needs some defense. Especially when we get to the next round and we are playing Phoenix.
