The Warriors are in Motown for their final test, calculus--also known as the dreaded Pistons.
I liken the Warriors to that slacker kid who sits and slumps in the corner of class, keeping to him/herself usually doodling pictures on the desk. As the typical high school archtypes go, the kid is usually an ex-honors student so disenchanted by the droning of his middle class suburban life that s/he decides to find solace in his/her "non-comformist" and "wreckless" (for middle class suburban life) behavior: in this case, a little mj, maybe some cigarettes, ripped heavily tapered Mervyns, Sears, or JC Penny jeans, Army fatigue jackets, a bad haircut from Fantastic Sams that his mom made him get 3 weeks ago, and some death metal music that ironically is about pretty things like unrequitted love. It is a way out of the highly regulated life of outer-city life. As you can tell, I grew up in the 'burbs and witnessed much of this.
Well, the Warriors, like these "rebellious" kids, have some talent -- enough to compete at least -- yet, refuse to get their act together. Granted, the injury bug has gotten them in addition to some biased reffing; yet, that's still no excuse. Although the Warriors owned the Pistons the last time they met (111-79), the new look Pistons (16-4 since getting Chris Webber) tells me that CWebb's hex on the Warriors is probably as strong as ever.
The W's need to stop playing games and start paying attention!
Also, as the GSoM midwest correspondent, look out for me on TV! I will be attendance sporting my GSoM shirt somewhere behind one of the baskets in the lower bowl. Any other GSW fans in Michigan going to the game? Lets hope the barbarians of Auburn Hill won't be dousing me with beers like they did Artest.
