The Warriors Lost, Eventually

June 22nd, 2007

During the unbelievably exciting first two rounds of the NBA playoffs, I was following our Golden State Warriors' great success with little blog items reporting on the outcome of each game.

Then I got kind of distracted getting my one-man show going. Well, that's my excuse, at least. So for those readers whose only interaction with the Bay Area sporting world is through this blog (a small group, I suspect), let me just mention that, after taking down the mighty Dallas Mavericks 4 games to 1, the Warriors fell to the oxymoronically named Utah Jazz by an identical margin.

But not before Baron Davis's mighty dunk, in game 3, over Jazz shot-blocker extraordinaire Andrei "AK-47" Kirilenko -- which you can watch here. (Note that Baron celebrates his feat by lifting up his jersey and showing the crowd his tummy -- which is something that I would consider doing after a strong performance, if only I could get my "core" a bit tighter.)

The tantalizing question burning up the fan blogs right now is whether the (reasonably named) Minnesota Timberwolves will trade their All-Star power forward Kevin Garnett to our Warriors -- which would make us (yeah, I know: "us"! -- but can't a levitationally challenged hoops fan use that term for "his" team?) instant contenders for a championship. Anyone out there who might be tight with KG (by all accounts, a great guy), could you put in a word? Thanks.
