Quarter Pole. #1 job to start season was chase wins with the easy schedule, infuse Andre and the vets OPJ & Belly, and get a sense of where we stack in the league (without Klay and all the young guys). The home and home with PHO a perfect test. This is playing out to perfection to start the year. I have to admit, moving forward, I don't give a rats ass about basketball and how the Warriors are playing in December and January. Why? Because Klay is coming back. I don't care about the score, I don't care about the rookies, Poole, Dray, or Curry. Yo, people! Klay is gonna being playing basketball, and it looks like he is going to be rocking the Jackie Moon headband. I hope he wears #77. All the shit we have all had to deal with these last 2 years, People!!!! Klay is coming back, Klay will be rising up and letting it go. The Universe will make sense again.

OT. There was a historically great game in chess championship today, but it's only cool if you follow chess. What's weird is how they organize the classical championship. Whoever wins is champ (for the last decade, Magnus Carlsen). Then there are two years of tournaments to determine who will be the challenger next time, but he's automatically in. That's like if the Bucks waited all year while 29 teams contested each other for the right to play them. Massive massive advantage for the current champ. He should have to re-qualify like everyone else.

According to Klays agent, Klay could play 25-30 mins a night right now

Probably worst loss of the season if we lose today

Alright no excuses on any side, this evening. We’re missing Iguodala. They’re missing Booker.

Seems like every year one team or another will pull something new out of there defensive batman utility defensive belts to throw at Curry and if it works, the rest to the league picks up on it. We will see what the new adjustments will hold.

And then we copy said defensive adjustments to other teams dismay once the DPOTY gets the scheme into his big brain.

Really great analysis and a lot that I hope they can work on. Most specifically the two stars for warriors needed to play better which is rare as being our problem.

But let’s be real. We all know that the reason the Dubs lost on Tuesday was that as a fan I didn’t bring my A game. I got distracted with the rest of my life, there was that whole drinking game joke in chat and I — this is hard — I even failed to watch right away a couple of times coming out of commercial. I owe everyone here and of course owe Steph a sincere apology. I can do better. I have to do better or we can’t do this. I WILL do better.

The Suns D figured out a great plan and execution against Curry last game. So we will now see the inevitable version of Curry show up today.

I haven't said it in a while but always feeling it: I love DNHQ! While I look forward to someday being able to use GIFs and perhaps turn hearted comments gold or something, I simultaneously believe this place to be as perfect a place to discuss sports as I've ever seen. Thank you.
