My husband and I retired mid-2018 and could no longer afford living in San Francisco so we returned to my hometown Chicago. Two weeks later he was diagnosed with brain and lung cancer. After rounds of chemo and radiation, he was weakened, but insisted on going to the Bulls-Warriors game. Somehow he made it to our seats — and Klay went off for 14 threes. It gave him a thrill and a spark (me too) to carry on no matter what. I can also testify to DNHQ helping both of us to recover with joy. He is still okay after a couple of bumps in the road, thank God. I tried last night to get tickets when the Warriors are in Chicago in January — bundle up Warriors for a back-to-back with Milwaukee! Anyway, just okay seats start at $550!!! I wish the Bulls were still so bad that tickets were reasonable.

I have a dream...

- Spring '22 without lockdown

- Steph MVP

- Dray DPOY

- JP3 MIP

- GP2 All Star SDC winner

- WCF

- Wiggins Finals MVP

- Klay 30 pts in finals game 7 third quarter...

... and a Ring to rule 'em all.

Eh? ;)

@Asher - Thanks for the crossword. I got about 8 at first glance. Now the hard work begins.

Pretty dope.

Also looks like you have ECE/software background. Yes?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I had set an 11lb Turkey (frozen) in the fridge for 7 days and the bottom part never defrosted. Ran to Whole Foods to get a Turkey Breast and the top ended up overcooked and the bottom raw as hell. Corn this year is tough as nails, overliquified my mashed potatoes and ended up just butchering the cornbread stuffing. Thank God for the dubs. Had this been my Thanksgiving 2 years ago, I would have had a mental breakdown

As you say, Daniel, no lead is safe from this team. This was the hallmark of our championship teams with our core guys. Without Klay and KD, they are still doing it. Why? Curry and Green with the right combination of support players and D. The Kerr system is a winner. You just need the right players to jump start it. Playing it through 4 quarters is enough to wear down teams, make adjustments, and hit overdrive. Without Steph, I'm not sure we can play at this level for a whole season even though the system is sound.

Theoretically, my only real concern is Phoenix. For 3 seasons, they've been building a winning team and presently, that 14 game winning streak is nothing to sneeze at. No one wins 14 games in a row that is not good, real good. So, there is our really big challenge that some will measure our team by. Even if we lost to them, it should not take us out of contention, alter the way we play, or convince anyone that we won't be victorious in the end. Plus, we have Klay to look forward to adding in to the already potent mix of talent, 2 way talent. These guys want to win and so do we fans.

As thanks for the site, I have created a crossword puzzle for DNHQ. It builds off of the interests of the folks here. I enjoy making crosswords, and if you enjoy solving them, here ya go.

For those who follow such things, it is roughly a NYT Wednesday in difficulty. It can be found here: https://bit.ly/3cOvapZ

Wiggs was right about the vaccine - it changes you. But probably not in the way he was afraid of…

I love how, as the season has gone along, it’s getting harder to identify which articles are from DDD vs DH. DDD writing has gotten more gold blooded, and Hardee’s writing leaned less into “challenge the doubters/haters”. A grades all around for DNHQ authors.

A double digit deficit for this team definitely brings on the greater focus/intensity, I’m not exaggerating when I say that the Warriors being up 20 is when I feel that pit in my stomach and start yelling at the TV for Curry to stop F ing around

" where the bones of hoopers past rest." One example of a very nice write-up. VERY nice.
