Allen Iverson & Larry Brown; A Retrospective

This article is dang good, son. It's very long, it's from April of 2001 when the 76ers made the finals, and it's about AI and Larry Brown. A good people piece indeed, playa.


Ron Artest: Savior

I've read Three Cups of Tea. I've read The Kite Runner. I tried to read A Thousand Splendid Suns but got bored. And I'm guessing that Ron Artest has read these books as well. Which means that we both agree on one thing: Fuck The Taliban.

Why The Warriors Matter

Here's an interesting read for us Warriors fans. Bethlehem Shoals works his magical prose over at The Baseline and trys to explain how the Warriors matter to everyone beyond just their record.........which we all know won't be very impressive this year.

If all y'all Nextians didn't peep my post two postings ago please peep it now. After you are done peeping, check out the wordz below.

OK, now that you are thoroughly entertained I have an update for you on the NBA song by our man SNIPA. I emailed him at and this morning he sent me the follow response:

greeting cameron,

thanks for the interest in my NBA song , lets make this song bounce like a basket ball on air

one love
keep intouch


nb: see attachment for the song

How sick is that? Our man SNIPA wants to keep in touch with the OG Nextian! First of all, if you'd like the MP3, let me know and I'll send it over. Also, I'd like some input on how we can get SNIPA's song out there more with our enormous crew. And how should I continue to foster this relationship with SNIPA? I think he hangs in Cali sometimes (as seen in his "about the NBA song" Youtubes posted two posts ago) so maybe we can get him a seat at an upcoming Dubs game and get totally blunted with him in the parking lot beforehand. That would be AMAZING.

Booing Stack Jack: So Cliche

Contra Costa Times Warriors Beat Writer Marcus Thompson (damn, that was A LOT of words that began with capital letters in a row!) had something to say about the Warriors fans booing Stephen Jackson on opening night. This is a good, quick read:


And if you're reading this more than a week after the Warriors first game, please pass this article over and proceed to watching the timeless Youtubes and reading just as timeless articles. Stay Next, my Nextians.

The NBA's New Anthem

Reggae Dancehall music artist SNIPA has pretty much crafted the best NBA anthem I have ever heard. Not since the piano dronings of "Where Will Amazing Happen?" has a song so captured the heart of NBA competition and what all of us love about The Association. Please enjoy:

If you liked that, now listen to SNIPA talk about the making of the video. Classic:

Captain Jack, Don Nelson, Robert Rowell: The Warriors Are MESSED UP!

The most entertaining NBA story of this October before the NBA tips off on the 27th has been the ridiculous saga of our Golden State Warriors. With Stack Jack's recent actions of trade demands, getting tossed out of a game in 5 minutes, and resigning as Team Captain, things have reached a tipping point for the organization and, more importantly, it's fans. The Warriors Management could only lie to us and spin the truth for so long until it became so ridiculous that national sports media had no choice but to get involved. When a team story gets to the point where every NBA fan knows about it and has the same opinion about it, there becomes no way to lie any further. Maybe Robert Rowell and Don Nelson could have kept getting away with lying to the GSW fans. But they can't get away with lying to the NBA community of Players, Coaches, Management, Media and Fans. Robert Rowell and Don Nelson: You've been caught!

Here are a few articles that need to be read by all Nextians. Today's Adrian Wojnarowski article on the situation is a good place to start: CHECK IT

Also, thanks to Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury. He has been critical of the Warriors and all of his articles and blog posts in the months and years past have been confirmed. Even the Sportsguy is linking to his articles on Twitter which, apparently, have crashed the Mercury website more than once. You must peep the 25 fireable offenses of Robert Rowell: CHECK IT

Can things get any worse as a Warriors fan? Probably. Can't wait for Monta to stop playing and Anthony Randolph to demand a trade before the season's over. I think I'm becoming a Bobcats fan.

Steve Nash VitaminWater Infomercial

Is this real? Is this awesome? Is Steve Nash funny?

Free Coffee at 7-11

Dudes, 7-11 coffee ain't that bad. Especially since it's now free until the end of October. My friend Abdul owns a few 7-11's and he told me to post this on The Nextians since we get so many hits. And while you're picking up your free daily joe please support my man and buy a donut or a cliff bar or another cup of coffee or something.


What does this have to do with the NBA? Well just know that Former Warrior Team Captain Stephen Jackson gets his 40's from 7-11 every day. Word.

Gil Zero In TNT Commercial

Gilbert Arenas was fined $25K today for not speaking to the media since Media Day on 9/28/09. Although he was in an NBA on TNT commercial with Dwight Schrute recently. But I don't think he speaks in this one either.

What the heck is Gil-Zero/Gazo Tha Pranksta doing these days? Has he gone back to his samurai roots and taken a vow of silence? I think that Gil is storing up his focus with great discipline and will soon unleash a tidal wave of playmaking fury all over the court of his opponents. Watchout for Gil!

True Hoop on Kevin Durant

The most influential NBA Blog made a stink about Durantula's adjusted plus/minus numbers on Friday and the match was lit. KD twatted his ass off this weekend in response but seemed to miss the entire point of Abbott's post. I don't fault a young KD for sticking up for himself in a classy/tastefully done manner. True Hoop has then issued a must read follow up post on this situation.

Interesting stuff on many levels. First of all, the analysis by True Hoop is great. Secondly, and probably more importantly, we're getting an unprecedented level of communication between blogs and actual sports stars. Durantula doesn't call out True Hoop directly, but he is talking about Henry Abbott's analysis. Don't you just love the new sports media era we are in? Why the heck couldn't have twitter been around when Gil-Zero was going off?

Bad adjusted plus/minus or not, at least KD will be off the chain this year in fantasy basketball.

Lamar Odom Smokes Weed

I was reading Sports By Brooks and he showed me a picture of Lamar Odom smoking weed at a Labor Day party. I thought I'd take it in and then pass it along to my peeps.

Francisco Garcia Exercise Ball Accident

Dude, Francisco Garcia was a true sleeper this year in fantasy basketball. Now it appears as if he is going to be out a significant amount of time. Sucks for Garcia, sucks for the Kings, and sucks for Kings fans everywhere.


The Dubs: A Bethlaham Shoals Review

Bethlaham Shoals, the metaphysical watcher of all things NBA, put up his pre-season review of the GS Dubs today on The Baseline. Laugh, cry, and understand:

Steve Smith: Golden State Warrior

Nellie is an IDIOT! Why the hell did he cut Steve Smith? That dude is/was SICK!

14 points/game, 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 85% career from the line? Dude. The Warriors really make terrible personnel decisions at every turn.
