You know what's genuinely crazy? The fact that I just witnessed one of the best players in the NBA have his potential scrimmage winning jumper blocked by a sub-6 foot Asian teenager and it didn't even feel all that out-of-norm as a watched it happen. Take away the fact that his name is Steph Curry and that actually seemed rather run-of-the-mill. In many ways that's a testament to how much he's been able to accomplish as a 6'3, rail thin guard in a league full of genetic freaks, but the Warriors are obnoxious so I am just going to use it to disparage him instead. Sorry Chef, but you could cook up your 3rd straight MVP caliber season and still not be able to fully overcome the stink of having your shot returned to sender by a multitalented math-lete. I don't care how many records you hold, highlights you star in, or championships you win. As Jonah Hill once so eloquently said, "people don't forget".
More importantly, when is Kevin Love finally going to catch a break? Literally his only notable contribution in the entirety of the NBA finals was semi-passable perimeter defense during one game deciding possession, and some 17 year old Filipino kid just made it look easier than making Ramen noodles. I know the situations vary oh-so-slightly in importance, but I'm not so sure I wouldn't have more faith in Jeremy Lin's long lost cousin to temporarily lock down Curry on the wing than I would in Kevin Love. My brain obviously says differently but my eyes tell me the defense played by an NBA player with a max contract looked like that of a chicken with it's head cut off in comparison, and if there's one test all basketball fans swear by it's the eye test...
