Good Times in Oakland

Is there better entertainment value in professional sports right now than Golden State home games? Tonight's comeback victory over the Lakers might be the best Friday night game ESPN gets all year. The crowd was going wild and we got two vintage Baron Davis fadeaway bombs late in the fourth quarter. As a basketball fan, you can't ask for more than that.

I also want to point out that Monta Ellis is the real deal. I know his confidence is an issue at times and he needs to improve his shot selection, but he rebounds amazingly well for a guard, has great timing going for steals, and is an underrated individual defender. He was the difference between a win and a loss tonight for the Warriors.

Oh, and Trevor Ariza is going to wind up being a key pickup for the Lakers when it is all said and done.

That's all for now except for this ... the NBA League Pass is worth it, just so I can watch Warriors games all season.
