    A big part of what I do is working with families in this type of situation. It's tough. I could tell you a lot of incredibly sad stories. But this is not the place. My prayers go out to the Pippen family. I have a son this age.

    man... you’re doing God’s work JC. It takes someone with an incredible heart and ability to deal with despondency to do what you do.

    I don't think you can or should win an MVP on a team barely over 500 but man is Steph Curry challenging that notion. 11th straight game over 30 tonight in the win over Philly. entered the 4th Q with 29 points and the Warriors tied, Philly hits a 3, Curry hits a 3 and proceeds to score 20 points, including a missed FT in the 4th quarter. Kerr actually left him in a bit at the end to try and get 50 if not for the missed FT he had it. 5 of the 11 he topped 40 with one 53 a 49 and a 47. 10 3's again tonight.

    I have never seen a guy on a tear like this where more than half his made shots are from 3. He's shooting 49% from 3 in April and doing it taking 14 a game!

    He can't possibly keep it up but remember after the last game they didn't even know if he'd play today because of the ankle roll.

    The man is legend, again they are the 8th worst offense in NBA history with him not on the floor and yet they're .500.

    He’s on a Jordan-esque run this month and i think he’s definitely a top 5 candidate for how he’s carried that team all season, but still not the MVP. He’s incredible though and I think their run gets back in gear next year and has at least another three years in it, especially if Wiseman makes a leap or they get the Wolves pick and get another good player to go with them with Klay back.

    Curry is my MVP if they make the playoffs. One of the greatest carry jobs ever.

    Yeah I'm not saying he should win it but this is unreal. he scored 20 points in just over 6 minutes in the 4th quarter. At least the 4th time in the 11 games he's had 20 or more in a quarter.

    It almost looks like the Red Sea parting.

    Overstating and way too early, I know. It's just a LOT of key injuries among contending teams this year.

    It is really weird. Still a month away so they may all get healthy in time yet.

    He was on the court at the end of their game last night in street clothes. I know clothes can be misleading but he looked ENORMOUS, he looked like he'd gained 20 pounds since he last played.

    I'm assuming all the injuries are Covid related, guys who shut down and then came back in the bubble and then had a new offseason, not injuries caused by Covid, but caused by the new schedule that Covid caused.

    Is that the first time all season he's even played seven straight games?
