Dubs! Curry put this game away by scoring 22 points in the last 6 minutes of the third. Absolutely phenomenal.

I wish the Lakers did not even make the playoffs

Dubs decapitate a hater with amazing ease.

Impressive that the Lakers made the playoffs but damn that was just bad What can you expect when Kobe, Nash, Meeks & Blake are all out but still, D'Antoni sucks.


Impressive wins by the Warriors, didn't see last 2 games so I can't assess but props. Seems like the team just can't miss for the most part.


Miami, too damn easy. Boston will be out the next game, they almost gave that game away yesterday after leading by 20. Hawks & Pacers series is just like a flip-flop. And the hell Nets, I was so impressed in game 1 but the team just plain sucks the last 3. Lil'Nate blowing up was insane, crazy to watch.

Clips needs to fire VDN last season, dude sucks. He better not return next year if the Clips makes a 1st round exit.

Jason Collins has officially come out as gay. Baron Davis and Steve Nash tweeted support.

Good for Collins. But one has to wonder if the choice of action photos was deliberately suggestive . . .

Agreed. Can't recall another active NBA player to do that.

To be fair, it's not like he's a regular feature in highlight reels. There must have been limited stock footage.

If he doesn't land with a team this season or the next, he won't technically be an active NBA player.

Please don't use this post to bitch about a fact check mafia, I'm just pointing it out.

Fair point. And as an editor, I'm not sure you'd want to reject an otherwise good photo just because of that, either.

Glad he's happy and at peace with himself. It looks like a lot of people are showing support as well.

The wife of a former colleague taught the Collins twins in high school. I recall at the time my colleague saying that they were good kids with supportive, sane family. Despite the fact that they were highly recruited, etc., they were solid students who, while maybe not academic superstars, did the work and did not act like they expected special treatment.

According to YCP on twitter (You Can Play, a GSM-athlete support group, mainly affiliated with hockey), he's the first (quasi) active openly gay male athlete in a NA professional team sport.

Supposedly, he twin brother had no idea he was gay until Jason told him like a year ago. That's some secret he lived for awhile.

Mark Cuban has said he'd want the first openly gay player to play for the Mavericks. I guess he can put his money up and prove it if Jason doesn't get signed to a better offer anywhere else.
