    As part of the Bay Area contingent I feel its my duty to chime in and say, "yeah Curry is a pretty good shooter and it was fun watching last night." And to be fair, "Warriors will struggle to make playoffs."

    Per Woj, a lot of new protocols going into place for the NBA after a lot of positive tests in recent days. Essentially, it becomes a bubble outside the bubble. No going to approved restaurants on the road, no visitors at the hotel, etc.

    Good luck enforcing the no visitors to the hotel rule.

    I would have thought this was already part of the protocol. Maybe I'm overly conservative but no way I would be doing those things in the midst of a pandemic, especially on the road.

    But what if I have a hankering for chicken wings? Asking for a friend...

    I liked the bubble better anyway; the video screens were a big improvement over tarped over seats so let's bring the bubble back, baby!

    I'm sure they're interested in that, but man, I'm not sure if I'd do Simmons for Fat James Harden by himself at this point. That Rockets situation is getting worse by the day, and the Sixers are winning. Why screw with a good thing? I think I'd like to see at least one postseason with Simmons, Embiid and Doc together, especially since Morey's already done a better job in rounding out the roster talent than his predecessors.

    Better than the Nets getting him. Kyrie and Beard together sounds like a bad idea.

    Ha, yeah. Some of the Harden criticism is unfair to me. It's not like he forced the Rockets to build around him, and if you re-played his past X years in Houston, they probably make the finals at least once. They were right-there several times, despite some brutally tough paths.

    But that being said, he clearly didn't give a shit coming into this season. I thought Wall and Cousins were going to be washed, and Harden probably did too, but they've both been OK so far.
