I hate the Warriors. They may be pesky enough to pull a few upsets, but I don't like their roster, and I don't respect their style. They're not built to ever go far, and they just signed Al Thornton. Gentlemen, I call upon our collective sense of respectability. We must NOT finish the season behind those Bay-Area-Schmucks.
The Warriors beat Minnesota tonight, and so they are 30-36 for the season. We are 26-41. Put starkly, we're trailing the team that drafted Ekpe Udoh by 4.5 games. That's unacceptable. Can we agree to agree, the Clips need to approach every game from here 'til the end with an urgent sense of resolve.
Golden State does not have an easy schedule. Out of their 16 remaining games, they are facing 10 current western conference playoff qualifiers, plus two against Phoenix and Houston. I reckon they'll go something like 6-10. When I am king, those 6 losing teams will be first against the wall. Until then, I suggest we fight for every rebound.
Our remaining 15 games are not a whole lot easier. To top Golden State, it looks like we'll have to win about 10 of them. We have to play 8 current western conference playoff qualifiers, plus 3 more against Phoenix and Houston. However, 5 of those 8 toughies are against Memphis and OKC, neither of whom are insurmountable. I'm sure ZBo and Durant each put their pants on one leg at a time, and I hear that Wussel Restbwook wears a bra. These guys ain't so bad... They ain't so BAAAAAD. The first of the series is Monday night, so break out the Rocky theme song and put on your cowboy hats. I HATE THE F'ING WARRIORS!
