Watch the Warriors dribble, dunk, alley-oop, coup-fourre, shimmy-shammy, and Irish chowder. Today’s deal gets you 200-level tickets (sections 213–220) to see the Golden State Warriors battle the Memphis Grizzlies, Minnesota Timberwolves, or Indiana Pacers for $18 at Oracle Arena. Sections 213–220 provide great views of the entire court, so you can easily follow the run-and-gun Warrior action. It’s the perfect outing for sports fanatics, families, people who only own orange, lighter orange, light blue, and darker blue clothing.
As the 2009–2010 season kicks off, all eyes are on first-round draft pick Stephen Curry. The son of Virginia Tech star and Charlotte Hornets guard Dell Curry, Stephen led the nation in scoring with 28.6 points per game, breaking a slew of school and NCAA records along the way to All-America honors. Along with being a prolific scorer off the dribble, Curry packs a long-range jumpshot, terrific off-balance aim, excellent instincts, and his life-coaching certification. Insiders have dubbed him a tailor-made fit for Warriors coach Don Nelson’s up-and-down style of play.
Watch Curry and the rest of the squad, led by veteran offensive machines Monta Ellis, Stephen Jackson, and Corey Maggette, jell into an edible NBA-stew. After last season’s 29–53 record, the returning Warriors want to prove they can return to the playoffs.
The Golden State Warriors’ rabid fans include Yelpers, who give them 4.5 stars: > * The warriors are the best! Go warriors! We believe! Stephen Curry is the future… He is going to be great. – Vardeen B. > * I’ll always love the Warriors… The best feeling is to watch them win. The crowd gets hyphy and everyone is feeling good watching them… Now we have a young group of guys that are full of energy. – joycie w.
Innovations in Basketball
Basketball has gone through numerous innovations since James Naismith first nailed a peach basket to a galloping horse and invented basketball. Here are some of the key changes that make the game what it is:
1924: The 30-minute shot clock is introduced, guaranteeing at least one shot per game.
1976: The Denver Nuggets begin using a ball that causes fearsome premonitions in whoever is holding it.
1998: The NBA expands by two teams composed entirely of baby kittens.
2002: Losing at basketball is outlawed in Los Angeles, simultaneously causing the Lakers to win the NBA championship and the Clippers to be incarcerated in a floating sky-jail for 10 years.
