    Golden State has 92 points. Klay has 10 3 pointers. They're up by 42 points.

    It's halftime in Chicago.

    The knicks actually gave them a game for 3 quarters the other day.

    I wonder if the 3 pointer was banned if the Warriors would be as dominant?

    What a weird thing to wonder...

    That is like wondering if the Yankees would be as dominant if home runs were banned.

    Probably. Since offense and defense plays are created with the 3 point line in mind, not having it may create more mid range open jumpers.  The fundamentals of the entire game would be unlike what we know so hard to know for sure.

    Doesn’t change the fact that the Warriors have a roster that I would have created in cheat mode in NBA Live ‘95 on the SNES.

    Of course they wouldn’t be. But does that somehow take away from what they are accomplishing? Without the 3 point line the NBA would be awful. Floor spacing would be terrible and scores would plummet.

    Warriors were pretty dominant in that game too. Run TMC!

    I forgot Webber was on that team!  Timmy, Mullins, Spree and c Webb were pretty much a cheat team.

    It would be like earlier basketball when a Center actually meant something.

    If you are 7' and don't have a 3pt shot or ball handling skills then you'll have a very short career in the NBA now.

    Having that arc there though excites people.  When I see Curry take shots from 10' behind the arc I get wowed every time. Wowed because he makes them.

    I learned to Love Webber after I saw him take his team over and try to beat the Lakers in a game.  

    Shaq was dominant back then and Webber decided to D up on him to try and stop the Shaq attack.

    He had my utmost respect after manning up and taking the low post up against someone twice his size.

    Love 'em.  They are really good.  Very entertaining.  I wonder if they would come out with a 30 for 30-esque box set.

    Yeah WTF was that about!?!  Dropping 50 on the Jazz?

    Well enjoy it because this won't be an everyday occurrence...

    Lebron dressed up as Jason upon his arrival last night and hit the game winning shot/free throw.

    The Pelicans only got beat by 10 from the Warriors.  GS needs to step it up, lol.

    I watched the Knicks Pacers game too and it's amazing how far advanced the GS Warriors are from these two teams.

    Olidipo needs to go to a better team.  He is such a waste of talent there in Indiana.

    Not just getting minutes. He's started all 7 of Atlanta's games and is playing 20+ mpg.

    There's a documentary about him on Netflix that I would recommend.

    I believe it's called The Carter Effect.

    Searching Netflix for Vince Carter should find it.

    Rachel Nichols was recently saying that she would like to see VC enter the Dunk contest.
