Harrison Barnes Shouts Out to Tar Heels in Damian Lillard Birthday Tweet

Andre Iguodala gets the best of Harrison Barnes

Cary Edmondson – USA TODAY SPORTS

So being an out of touch caucasian sports writer, I am just getting wise to a new phenomenon on twitter called #4barfriday, and have to say my first experience with it below. Small forward Harrison Barnes recently layed down a little rhyme in honor of Damian Lillard’s birthday. The rhyme includes a little shout out to North Carolina which I always like to hear.

Barnes was one of my favorites at Carolina, and in my mind he will thrive next season likely in a sixth man role due to the arrival of Andre Iguodala. Barnes’ pride should not be hurt; he is still a fantastic player and should figure quite highly in the Warriors future plans especially if he continues to stay healthy and improve. He fared well in the playoffs even when the opposing team was trying to use his presence in the lineup as a deterrent.

The Dubs as I like to call them will have expectations after last season’s surprising run, but they will be a top five favorite for “Most Fun Team” to watch in the league. Positive they will make many folks’ League Pass rotation, although still on the fence on whether I’m going to do that or just roll with cable.

In any case, I need to start working on my next rhyme for #4barfriday.

President Obama's Got Jokes About Warriors, 1995-96 Bulls

The Golden State Warriors recently visited the White House to be acknowledged for their 2014-15 NBA championship. As you may know, President Obama is a huge fan of basketball, and especially his beloved Chicago Bulls. While introducing the team, President Obama joked that he was in the presence of one member of the greatest team in basketball history with Steve Kerr on stage. The Warriors head coach was a member of the 1995-96 Bulls team that many think of as the greatest team of all time.

Stephen Curry Puts On A Clinic Against Spurs

NBA fans and media alike were incredibly excited for the first meeting of the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors this season, and many expected an uber-competitive game to take place on Monday night. Well, the game was enthralling, but not very competitive. Stephen Curry put on a clinic, and was dribbling circles around the Spurs throughout. Here's some evidence. If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.

Curry Shows Off With Half-Court Shot

It seems like Golden State Warriors PG Stephen Curry does something otherworldly on a daily basis nowadays. Last night against the Indiana Pacers, Curry casually threw up a half-court shot as time expired in the first-half, and it went in because of course it did.
