But even more hilarious/weird is Announcer/Former Spot Up Shooter Reggie Miller's "choke" reaction in the 2nd half of the video. Was Reggie trying to say that this guy choked on a blind folded half court attempt? I don't get it. And neither did Marv Albert.

But not so fast, my friends. It's off to Reno in an hour to place some prop bets on NBA champs and this evenings games. Upon our arrival back in Donner, the Trade Summit will begin. Amazing things will happen.

Since '07 the Warriors have lost or traded:
Instead the Warriors now have:
Monta Ellis, Kelenna Azubuike and Andris Biedrins are the only We Believers that remain. This really hurts. Thanks to Tim Kawakami for this revelation. I pretty much ripped him off word for word on this but I just wanted to feel the pain while typing these names. Holy Jeebus.

I heard that officials have spotted swarms of active Ninjas down in Santa Monica in Southern California. Experts say that they are making their way north to the Bay Area to wreak havoc on shit.
Don't say that I didn't fucking warn you guys.
Thanks to Ball Don't Lie who go this from The Huffington Post
And just in case you haven't yet seen the Sosa transformation yet:

The first American to skip his Senior Year of High School and go overseas to play basketball is having a tough time adjusting. Is not graduating High School to make $250K a good idea for the kid who wants to be an NBA lottery pick in 2011? It doesn't sound like it so far. But at least his girlfriend is Easy-E's daughter (RIP).
Brandon Jennings laid the groundwork and is currently viewed as a success story (18/4/4 so far for the Bucks) for those NBA-bound ballers who suck at school, want to make some cash instead of make the NCAA cash, and have a thick skin to adopt to pro ball life overseas. Brandon did have his rough spots up until this season. But Jeremy Tyler just seems plain immature. Peep the NYT article below

Yes, the Warriors had ANOTHER BEAT DOWN last night losing to the Kevin Martin-less Kings.
After last night's loss, Stephen Jackson's Agent had a telephone interview with Broussard of ESPN and said THIS
Golden State of Mind (the Warriors offical fan blog) then questioned who the hell this Agent think's he is? CHECK IT
Corey "The 50 Million Dollar Kid" Maggette proceeded to say that the team is in CHAOS
One's eye immediately goes to Amare's Oakley Blades which were often blogged about by me last year. He lost the yellow shade lens, but boy are those things awesome. Word on the calle is that Amare hates wearing these things but whole "detached retna" injury which caused him to sit on his ass for 5 months got him thinking that they're necessary. Way to use your big brain, Amare.
The vision is then focused on Amare's underarm deodorant. Thankfully, he wants to smell good for the games. I'm guessing it's Degree 360 by the looks it.
Now that's some great defense by Deshawn! This idiot is in ultimate "there's no WAY I'm getting infront of that" scared mode. Nice neck beard and non-Lebron Adidas kicks by the way. Did Gilbert hook you up with some Adidas? Also, nice neck tatoo.
The best aspect of this phun with photo has to be Caron Butler at the top of the key. What in the hell is he doing? Is he so disgusted by The Wiz defense that he is hiding his eyes from a vicious Stoudamire dunk? Is he complaining to the ref that he got held? Is he checking his watch? Is he signaling to the Wizards bench? We shall never know the truth.
And this is why pictures tell 1000 stories. Or at least 4.

Washington State Patrol spokesman Steve Schatzel said Thursday that the 2008 Cy Young Award winner and former star at the University of Washington was pulled over for speeding on Interstate 5 about four miles north of the Oregon border on Oct. 30.
An officer approached Lincecum’s 2006 Mercedes and smelled marijuana. Schatzel says Lincecum immediately complied with a request to hand over the drug and a marijuana pipe.
The amount measured was 3.3 grams. Schatzel says police consider that a small amount for personal use.
Lincecum was fined a total of $622 for driving at 74 mph in a 60-mph zone, and for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
My 2nd Favorite Team:
The December 16th, 2009 on NBA League Pass will begin the battle for my second favorite team: the Houston Rockets vs. the Denver Nuggets. A San Francisco Bay Area born and raised bleed-orange/blue/yellow Warriors fan at heart, the need for a second favorite team to follow has been always been apart of my NBA fandom dilemma. Heck, the Warriors are every other true NBA fan’s 2nd Favorite Team so it’s about time I choose one, starting this season. Relying solely on the soap opera that is this season’s Golden State Warriors without a backup team certainly points to an incredibly frustrating hit on not only my love of the Dubs (WHY IS RANDOLPH NOT GETTING MINUTES?!?!), but for my love of the NBA as a whole. I need a 2nd Favorite Team.
Basketball Prospectus devouring, daily Ball Don’t Lie reads, True Hoop RSS feeds, and intense analysis of Shoals prose on Free Darko and The Baseline have brought me to the epic December 16th, matchup between Houston and Denver.
Not a mortal enemy of the Warriors? Check. A solid organization who is trending upwards? Double check. A team that isn’t routinely touted by all of the talking heads on TV (Oklahoma City)? Oh heck yeah.
I am letting this matchup decide who my 2nd Favorite Team will be for the remainder of the season because at this point, I am honestly stuck on who to choose. Do I take a crew of outcasts and misfits that play with more intensity and swagger than anyone else in the league? A crew that somehow George Karl, of all coaches, has figured out how to harness and direct their craziness towards winning? Or do I go with the Dork Elvis created role players who will morph into a team that does whatever it takes to win. Ariza? Brooks? Scola? Will these guys emerge as top tier NBA producers? I need to become a true fan of one of these teams.
It won’t even say that the winner of this game will win my fandom. It will be a battle for my emotions which do not only recognize the score.
Skeets and KD, I need to see this game to decide! And without League Pass to see this game, this decision will haunt me for the entirety of the season.

Toomie is gathering some craigslist tickets for the game this Friday vs. The Clip Show. Should be a good time. I'm not sure if he can get a bunch of tickets for all of us (we can ask him) but I thought I'd throw out the invite to our loyal readership. Actually, Toomie runs the YeeBA and this is an official Yee event. But if you want to go to the game, get some tickets let's totally tailgate beforehand and take some pictures and party on BART all the way home. Yeee.
At least this was a good excuse to post our picture from last year's official Nextians Warriors Game Event.
