Klay Thompson: We Want To Three Peat

Published

on

The Golden State Warriors are spending their last year in Oakland before moving to San Franciso.

The Dubs have won 3 of the last 4 championships. Warriors guard Klay Thompson wants the Warriors to win a three peat before the team leaves the Bay.

“We want to do it for the fans of Oakland. Been so loyal to us for 40-plus years, whatever it’s been since they’ve been in Oracle. So that definitely helps with this season.” said Thompson “It’s leaving a big legacy behind in Oakland because people might not get to see us as much in San Francisco. And just enjoying this every night.”

“We have such a special group. We play in front of such amazing fans. And every game is so much fun because it’s such an amazing atmosphere. It’s not like we’re playing in front of six or seven thousand people a night. It’s sold out. It doesn’t matter who we play, preseason, Finals. It’s easy to come to work when you’ve got a fan base like we have.”

History also figures to be a motivating factor since the 2000-02 Los Angeles Lakers with Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant was the only team to accomplish the feat since Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls did so twice in the 1990s.

Published

Jalen Ramsey’s name has been in the trade rumor mill the past couple of weeks.

The Jaguars have denied all reports of trading their All-Pro cornerback. But the reports have been taking toll on the young star.

“I’ve been pretty pissed off, I’m not going to lie to you,” Ramsey said after the Steelers game on Sunday. “I have. I’ve been battling with my emotions, trying to hold them in. But you know I truly believe I don’t have any bad days. I have hard days sometimes.”

Ramsey intercepted Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger in the second quarter and picked off a pass intended for Brown in the end zone in the third quarter.

Lebron James Scores 51 Points In His First Win In Miami In Four Years

Published

on

Lebron James was winless in Miami since he left in 2014. That all changed on Sunday night when James scored 51 points in a win against his former team.

“It’s always great to be here, come back here and see a lot of familiar faces,” said James “We had some not-so-good times, we had more great times. So it’s always a respect factor and a love for the people of Miami, especially the people who work here. We put in a lot of time.”

James finished the game going 19 for 31 from the field with 9 rebounds.

“When he’s hitting shots like that, what do you want us to do?” Heat center Hassan Whiteside.

“I felt pretty good. I felt pretty good,” James said, playing on the second night of a back-to-back after mustering just 22 points on 8-for-19 shooting in a loss to the Magic on Saturday. “I think we were all kind of shell-shocked in Orlando from that cross-country flight, getting in late to Orlando and just having the time difference. … But we was able to get some good rest last night and feel pretty good about today’s game.”

The Lakers won the game 117-97.

Steph Curry Speaks On Kevin Durant And Draymond Green Spat

Published

on

Steph Curry has been held off the court with a minor ankle injury. While Draymond was held off due to the team-imposed suspension for his on-court argument with Kevin Durant.

Curry spoke to the Associated Press about the effect the suspension would have on the relationship between KD and Draymond.

“They have a lot of equity built in their relationship,” Curry said. “They’ve won championships together. They’ve brought out the best in each other. Obviously, I don’t think they’ve had an incident to this level, but you don’t have the experiences that you’ve had and go through the journey that we’ve been on and let it be derailed by something like that.”

“We have the opportunity to do something extremely special this year,” Curry said. “There’s going to be ups and downs and bumps in the road, whether it’s self-inflicted or whether it’s from outside. At the end of the day, nothing should distract us from what our goal is.”

He also said that the team has worked out the problem between Green and Durant, adding that both players have shown class.

“I think the way we’ve handled it as a team, the way Draymond’s handled it, the way KD’s handled it, it’s been nothing but professionalism,” Curry said.
