All They Do is Win

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on November 20, 2015

Still blown away by the Warriors win last night. I watched the first half. Steph and Green in foul trouble. Dubs playing no defense. Chris Paul, he of the *doubtful* tag pre-game, raining in 3’s like he was firing away at a pop-a-shot machine….

I turn off tv at halftime…….

They win by 8.

Insane.

A couple of weeks ago when they were 6-0, my buddy jokingly asked me what the odds would be of them going 82-0. I said 5,000-1? Would you bet on that? I mean, it would actually be something more like 10,000,000 to 1, right?

Today, I think I’d lay a bet at 1,000-1 and not feel like a complete idiot.

    The Warriors have a bunch of road games in early December. That will make for a pretty grueling stretch. It would be hard to come out that stretch completely unscathed.

    Betting on 82-0 would be incredibly dumb no matter how high the odds. It’s not going to happen.

      of course it isn’t but what if it did?

    The Dubs could probably win 82 in a row against the Sixers…

    Wonder if Eva’s offers that bet.

    The bet is over under on losses

    8?

      I’d take the under on that. But really, it comes down to Curry’s health. If he stays healthy they can withstand pretty much any other normal injury blows (due to their depth) and still break the all time reg season win record of 72. Hell, they won 67 last year and they are better this year.
      Why not?

    I too turned the game off last night when they were down 23 in the 2nd Q. Then I hear the chatter on the radio this morning. Amazing.

    If Dave Roberts doesn’t become the Dodger’s manager, he’ll be tempted to suspect that he was brought in to give the candidates more diversity. Although, I’m not sure what Kapler’s ethnicity is. If Freidman and Zaidi want someone totally on their sabermetric wave-length, they’re going to go with Kapler. If they want someone who might have the better chance of being a stronger leader, they perhaps go with Roberts. Overall, it seems strange how long they’re taking on this. It’s oddly quiet out in DodgerLand.

      From online photos, Kapler looks like a honky.

      A Dodger fan says:

      I’ve seen Popes chosen faster than this.

        When the smog comes in, the manager has been chosen…

    • Carstie Clausen said, on November 20, 2015 at 1:19 pm

      Kapler, like Friedman, is of Khazarian ethnicity and Jewish by religion.

    If the Warriors can win a few more games in a row, they’ll put themselves in the conversation of chasing the Lakers’ record of 33 straight.

  8. snarkk said, on November 20, 2015 at 2:10 pm

    If they can beat the season start record of 16 straight or whatever it is, fine. Then they can lose one. This streak stuff is dumb. The only streak that counts is winning playoff series. They need to stay healthy and spread minutes around to keep guys fresh for the playoffs…

    It was fun to watch the tv shots of the Clippers and their celebrity fans getting pumped up over the likelihood that they were going to beat the Dubs last night — and then watch them stare in astonishment as the Dubs took the game away.

    I’m sure this dude’s arm is gonna fall off one day. But until it does…..

    Sidd Finch all over again.

  12. snarkk said, on November 20, 2015 at 5:56 pm

    I don’t care how fast he throws. Can he get people out consistently? Is there a team out there more dislikable than the Clips? They’re getting darn near rivaling the Doghairs. Clips do nothing but winge constantly…

    Another wild and wooly warrior game. Chicago is a strong team. Hinrich is a punk ass punk.

    • willedav said, on November 21, 2015 at 6:58 am

      Wasn’t Chi last team to beat them in reg season game at home? They only lost 2 all year here, right?
      I thought this was going to be tough one after all the effort necessary to get comeback win night before vs. Clips.

      • unca_chuck said, on November 21, 2015 at 7:55 am

        Yup. Think it went OT. Last January?

  14. willedav said, on November 21, 2015 at 7:12 am

    Still supposed to be nice day in bay area today, but TV gods that decide Big Game is at 7:30 suck.
    While sure “you can throw out the records” in rivalry games, Cards clearly the better balanced team.
    If Goff does leave, where do Bears go from here?

  15. Carstie Clausen said, on November 21, 2015 at 9:30 am

    Scratch another one off the trade-for list. Tigies just nabbed Cameron Maybin for a well-used jockstrap and a n A-league starter.

    • Flavor said, on November 21, 2015 at 11:17 am

      That’s about all he’s worth. He’ll miss more than half of next season with injuries

  16. unca_chuck said, on November 21, 2015 at 11:40 am

    Unreal. Colin kaepernick placed on season-ending IR.

    Happy trails, Colin.

    Go Temple!
