So Golden State eeks out a 108-106 win at home against a team playing the second of a back-to-back with their best player (and the NBA's best closer since 1998) out with an injury... CONGRAT-U-EFFING-LATIONS!!!
So here's a few follow-up questions:
Did you hit the streets of Oakland (get robbed) and celebrate?
So where's the parade? Will it cross the bay into SF or is it just an Oaktown thang?
Will the Warriors bitch to the refs during the parade?
Will Matt Barnes get a flagrant foul in the ring ceremony?
How big are the rings? And will Stephen Jackson hock them at the local pawn shop?
Did Baron Davis get hurt putting the ring on his finger? (He's missed a combined 98 games since 03-04.)
Will they drop a banner for winning their second game in the last 16 against the Lakers?
Will any other of their celeb fans try to kill themselves in celebration?
Will Warrior Nation finally remove the tags from their brand new Baron Davis jerseys?
Will they spend another $72 on the new "We're Back!" tee shirt that dropped last night?
And by the way, what the hell are you back from? Back to advancing to the second round of the playoffs? Back to watching Nellie *NOT* take a team to the NBA Finals? Back from suspensions (Jackson for 7 to start the season, Matt Barnes for the flagrant on Turiaf last night)? (This can't be a historical reference since 90% of y'all didn't know the Bay Area had an NBA team before 2007.)
So call in sick tomorrow, enjoy the celebration and bitch to the refs... Bay Area Hoops earned their HUGE victory last night!
BTW - This ain't no rivalry, you're 2-14 against the Lakers. The last time Golden State won a season series was in the 93-94 season. (Yes GSW fans, you had a team back then.) Like Kobe said:
This is nothing. This is like slap-boxing. For a real rivalry, you have to match up in the playoffs. The regular season is nothing.
Anyway, I heard the celebration went on until the early morning... feel free to act like you've been there before!
