Well folks, this year is at an end and for one last night, we can say we accomplished something in 2007. For the second time in three years, we've faced the Rockets on New Year's Eve, in Houston. Both teams are opposite mirrors of each other.
Make the jump for more!
Update (Atma Brother #1):
Stay tuned for the Recap!
The Rockets started the year off Jessica Alba hot, and everyone jumped on the bandwagon crowning Adelman as Houston's savior. However, a couple injuries here and inconsistent plays there, the Rockets are a dismal .500 club. The Warriors on the other hand couldn't be any different. Starting a horrid 0 and 6, the Warriors brought back Jackson from the penalty box and are a gorgeous 18 and 13.
Warrior killer Tracey McGrady is noted to be sidelined again for this game so here's to hopefully a sweet ending for 2007. This would really put a sweet exclamation point for a beautiful year which gave us a playoff berth and first round history. The only thing in our way is a 7 foot 6 inch Chinese guy. How often do you hear that? Yao Ming looks to make YaoButtaMing sound more credible when he defended him in a GSoM thread a month ago, by controlling the Rockets' offense and pushing a low post game. With McGrady out, I think Jackson, Baron, and Ellis will force a fast tempo game to tire the Rockets out and finish the game as quickly as possible to get to the Bay before midnight.
Here are my 2 lists for this ending year and upcoming year:
Top 5 GSoM things to be thankful for 2007:
05 - Stephen Jackson coming back! Look at our record now!
04 - Successful GSoM nights ... and seeing our fans grow =)
03 - Seeing Jessica Alba in the Oracle rooting for the Warriors.
02 - Ending the 50 year playoff drought!
01 - Making first round playoff history by beating the #1 seed, Dallas Mavericks.
Top 5 New Year's Resolutions for 2008:
05 - YaoButta's going to learn how to write more better!
04 - Push to make GSoM the official Warriors website ... or just sell out (whichever is easier ... I kid).
03 - Generate the first ever GSoM Tailgating Ritual before tipoff. Ya'll better come or I'll cry!
02 - Figure a way to get on TV w/ Jim Barnett (legally at first) and promote GSoM.
01 - Convince everyone that Kate Beckinsale should be our new Alba for 2008!
One of my personal resolutions this upcoming year is to have more fun. And to start the resolution, here's a funny clip of one of our GSoM favorite comedians, Russell Peters:
- Warriors by 8.
- Beans, POB, DJ all hold Yao to 25 points.
- Ellis and Baron combine for 45.
- Warriors have a 13 point halftime lead and sit the starters for most of the 4th.
- Adelman wishes he was back in the bay.
- We spot 4+ Warriors fans sitting at the Toyota Center.
