Blame me for being overly focused on my home team, the Golden State Warriors, throughout this year in this forum as well as on my blog. I admit I was. But if you watched them regularly (and everyone in the Bay Area now watches every game), how could I not talk about them all the time?
When Josh Smith misses on his threes, the ball looks like a misguided missile. But man, can he pass. He lobbed and backdoored the Mavs to death in the second half to spearhead a 13-0 stretch that blew a one-point game wide open and gave Houston a 2-0 lead in their series.
What makes this league All-American? Well, no foreigners, for one. Which is fine by me, the razzle-dazzle-over-a-refined-game of "playahs" born outside of these United States, like Tim Duncan, have ruined basketball.
