    President Donald Trump is going to war with some high-profile African-American athletes who have political thoughts on their minds. The President said that fans should walk out when NFL players like Colin Kaepernick take a knee during the national anthem to protest our nation's inadequate response to racial inequities. After the NBA superstar Stephen Curry told the media that he did not want to go to the White House to be honored by Trump, the President decided to take time from his busy day to tweet a withdrawal of the invitation. It would be easy to see this as just...

    LeBron James called Donald Trump a "bum" after the US President rescinded an invitation for Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry to go to the White House. Trump tweeted Saturday that Curry is no longer invited to the White House because of what the president called hesitation by the two-time NBA MVP in deciding whether to make the traditional champions' trip to Washington. That prompted an angry response from Cleveland Cavaliers star James. James tweeted: "U bum. Stephen Curry already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honour until you showed...

    The offer hasn’t even been sent, but Kevin Durant is rejecting it anyway. “Nah, I won’t do that,” Kevin Durant, the 2017 NBA Finals MVP, said about the possibility of visiting the White House. “I don’t respect who’s in office right now.” Durant told ESPN on Thursday that he would stay away from President Donald Trump, skipping the traditional White House visit that so many championship teams have taken. The team is scheduled to visit Washington on Feb. 28 to take on the Wizards, and if the White House asks Golden State to stop by, Durant will be absent. “I...
  • Why Michael Jordan's '90s Bulls Would Beat the 2017 Golden State Warriors

    Thankfully, with his loss in the 2017 NBA Finals, I should never have to hear anyone attempt to elevate LeBron James above Michael Jordan in the GOAT discussion. Unfortunately, I now have to listen to people claiming that the 2017 Golden State Warriors would beat the Michael Jordan-led Chicago Bulls of the 1990s. That claim is more ludicrous than claiming that LeBron is better than Jordan. Below, I've listed three reasons why Michael Jordan's Bulls would beat the 2017 Golden State Warriors. 1. Defensive Matchups The 2017 Warriors are an offensive juggernaut, no doubt. However, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, and...

    OAKLAND, Calif. -- Kevin Durant capped his spectacular first season with the Warriors by bringing home that coveted NBA championship he joined Golden State last July so determined to get, scoring 39 points in a fast-and-furious, Finals-clinching 129-120 victory over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night.

    “Cavs locker room has a strong reefer aroma to it tonight. Hey, it’s Cali. You’re down 2-0 and it’s all about pain control. #NBAFinals.” Wise later clarified his tweet by saying it wasn’t clear what was causing the smell, saying it could have been a reporter, cameraman or whoever. “To be clear, I don’t know who was imbibing marijuana in the Cavs locker room – media that entered, player, etc. But it wasn’t a dead skunk.” Wise wrote.

    Patrick Ford, who graduates from UC Berkeley today with an MBA, is a standout at the Haas School of Business. Berkeley News recently talked with Ford about the origin of his mission, “Guy Talk” and other manbassador activities at Berkeley-Haas and post-graduation plans. What is a manbassador, and where did the name and idea come from? Manbassador is a more memorable name for the universal term “male ally.” A male ally is a man who works to end gender discrimination by supporting and being an advocate for women. I started noticing and caring about gender equity as an undergrad. Some...

  • Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game (55 years ago today)

    03/02/2017 10:06:50 AM PST · by EveningStar · 25 replies
    Wilt Chamberlain set the single-game scoring record in the National Basketball Association (NBA) by scoring 100 points for the Philadelphia Warriors in a 169–147 win over the New York Knicks on March 2, 1962, at Hershey Sports Arena in Hershey, Pennsylvania. It is widely considered one of the greatest records in basketball. Chamberlain set five other league records that game including most free throws made, a notable achievement, as he was regarded as a poor free throw shooter. The teams broke the record for most combined points in a game (316). That season, Chamberlain averaged a record 50.4 points per...

    Under Armour could have lost one of its most popular clients hours after CEO Kevin Plank sang Donald Trump’s praises. Stephen Curry, who has built a strong partnership with the sports-retail brand over the years since he ditched Nike in 2013, heard Plank call Trump an “asset” for supporting American businesses in an interview with CNBC Tuesday. So Curry trimmed a few letters to fit his beliefs. “I agree with that description,” Curry told Mercury News, “if you remove the ‘-et’ from asset.” Curry, who quietly supported Hillary Clinton in the election, opened up on Wednesday about the frantic aftermath...

    Character is often revealed in seemingly small gestures. Amid all the speculation about how retired Marine general James Mattis will manage to lead the behemoth called the Department of Defense, one personal experience I had a decade ago as a young staffer in the office of the Secretary of Defense sticks in my mind as a demonstration of Mattis's natural leadership ability. It was also an act of pure kindness I have never forgotten. After the invasion of Iraq in 2003, as large numbers of wounded warriors started to come home to the United States to recuperate at Walter Reed...

    Two games into the NBA Finals, the Warriors are halfway to repeating as champions. A 110-77 rout of the Cavaliers in Game 2 on Sunday at before a supremely satisfied sellout crowd at Oracle Arena gives the Warriors a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series, which shifts to Cleveland for the next two games. Forward Draymond Green scored 28 points to lead all scorers, while guard Stephen Curry finished with 18 and guard Klay Thompson finished with 17. Guard Leandro Barbosa came off the bench to put in 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting. The Warriors shot 54.3 from the field,...

    The biggest story of the NBA's regular season has reached its resolution. It ends with the Golden State Warriors holding a 73-9 record, a new league record for wins in a single season. The Warriors defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 125-104 at Oracle Arena on Wednesday to end the season on a four-game winning streak that puts them one win ahead of the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls for the new mark. If the Warriors can repeat as champions, they will certainly be remembered as one of the greatest teams in NBA history and will be considered a budding dynasty. This final win...

    The Golden State Warriors have equaled the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls’ record for wins in a season, and they’ve still got a little room to move. The defending champs topped San Antonio on Sunday night by a 92-86 score, in San Antonio’s building, running its record to 72-9. With a win over a depleted Memphis squad on Wednesday night Golden State will finish its season at 73-9, setting an NBA record for wins in a season. Sunday’s conquest fittingly came against San Antonio, the team that has played the Warriors the best this season, one that features a coach in Gregg...

    A CNN source said the network would likely air parts of the Trump event live and other networks are expected to give it live coverage as well. Trump announced on Twitter a dedicated website, DonaldTrumpForVets.com, for his supporters to donate funds for military veterans. “It is my great honor to support our Veterans with you!” Trump tweeted. The website, however, did not specify any particular charity to which the funds would go.
