Video: Golden State Owner Joe Lacob Booed During Chris Mullin Jersey Retirement

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=byBqrtB8Kow

Something tells me that Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob isn’t popular in the Bay Area.  Lacob just signed off on a five player deal that shipped fan favorite Monta Ellis to the Milwaukee Bucks.  In exchange, they received oft injured center Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson.  They later shipped Jackson to San Antonio for Richard Jefferson.

Monday night was the jersey retirement ceremony for Chris Mullin.  The Warriors were in the process of it when Lacob was called on to speak.  That’s when things got awkward.

The Warrior faithful were out for blood.  They relentlessly booed Lacob and the owner was visibly shaken.

I get that they don’t like the trade, but this night isn’t about Lacob.  It’s about honoring Chris Mullin.  Apparently the Warrior fans forgot that.  I’m sure Mullin won’t have the fondest memories of this night.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.

Rondo Perfectly Guesses Atlanta's Final Play

Say what you will about Rajon Rondo, but there's no way to deny that he's an incredibly smart basketball player. Last evening against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sacramento Kings were up by three points with 1.9 seconds left, and Atlanta had one final possession to tie things up. Rondo immediately recognized the play the Hawks had drawn up and directed DeMarcus Cousins to an empty space on the floor where the Hawks were planning to send a player to take a three. Rondo's smarts made the Hawks botch the play, and the Kings held serve for the win.

Paul Millsap Dunks All Over John Henson

Paul Millsap showed zero mercy on poor John Henson during this play. Hopefully Henson will be able to get over the traumatic experience.
