Shook Ankles: Where Someone’s Ankle Actually Gets Shaky

February 16, 2011 Leave a comment

My feelings on this are mixed. On one hand, you have Blake Griffin coming up for an impenetrable monster screen, only to have Eric Gordon trick Curry by defying basic logic and driving away from it. This causes Curry to stop and think “what in the hell is he—” before rolling his ankle over the top of Griffin’s shoe and crumbling to the ground in pain. This hardly makes it impressive.

On the other hand, Gordon’s crossover is the primary reason Curry sprains his right ankle, thus making it an incredible move. Tough call, but I tend to side with the former.

Commentary: Gargantuan Mistake Brewing?

January 26, 2011 Leave a comment

In today’s San Jose Mercury News, Warriors beat man Tim Kawakami continues to push a shrewd trade possibility involving Steph Curry. However inane it might be, the move has now been discussed in such detail as to catch the attention of Curry himself.

How serious is the Stephen Curry trade chatter, really? Is moving him for Nene or Chris Kaman or Tyson Chandler, as crazy as it sounds? I realize there’s new ownership in place, but trading a young, dexterous, possible franchise talent like Curry for a borderline All-Star big man—when last year, Amare Stoudemire was rumored to be in your grasp at the same price—would probably cause riots in the Bay Area.
