Kyrie Irving is latest NBA player with a glitch

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Perhaps it’s the busy schedule, or maybe it’s the stress of playing games with so much on the line. Whatever it is, players during these playoffs have shown a bizarre tendency to glitch out. If you didn’t see it, last week during a postgame press conference, Golden State’s Draymond Green had a bizarre glitch in which he just froze for half a minute. And then last night in Atlanta, after a whistle stopped play, a Kyrie Irving glitch occurred in the corner of the court. Do we need to call the Geek Squad?

Draymond Green is in the zone

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The phrase “in the zone” gets thrown around frequently in sports, but what exactly does it mean? It’s usually used to describe a player who gets into a state where he seems to perform at a higher level. But it could also be used to describe what happened to Golden State’s Draymond Green during the postgame press conference the other night following the Warriors’ win over Portland during Game 2 of the Western Conference semis. While his teammate Festus Ezeli is answering a question, suddenly Draymond either gets into a zone or zones out or freezes up or…well, something…

The good news is, Draymond has an explanation for it! According to Draymond, there was a glitch in the matrix…

A decade of the NBA on Twitter

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Today is Twitter’s tenth birthday, and over the last decade the social media platform has become an invaluable tool to use while following the NBA. Not only can fans and teams interact in real time, but NBA players and front office members have also taken to Twitter as a way to communicate with fans.

So, to celebrate Twitter’s tenth birthday, we got into the wayback machine and checked out some of our favorite NBA people’s first tweets…

The Warriors visit the White House


VIDEO: Warrior’s White House

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — One of the perks (among many) of winning an NBA title is the winning teams traditionally get to pay a visit to the White House, where we have a sitting president that’s a huge hoops fan. And with the Golden State Warriors in Washington D.C. after defeating the Wizards last night, today the Warriors got to spend some time in the White House and with President Obama, who unveiled a pretty good Steph Curry impression…

Draymond Green cools down Stephen Curry

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Golden State’s Stephen Curry had himself a game last night against the Washington Wizards. He scored 25 points in the first quarter, including 7 three-pointers, and finished with 51 points on 11 threes, as the Warriors basically outscored the Washington Wizards, 134-121. Curry was hot all night, and no matter what the Wizards tried, they couldn’t slow him down. As Wizards guard John Wall said after the game: “It’s like Kobe (Bryant) when he had 81. He couldn’t miss. You keep defending the best way you can. We challenged some shots. He didn’t have too many open looks. He just made them.”

Curry was so hot, the only person who could manage to cool him off was his teammate Draymond Green, who had to resort to the old ice water trick during Curry’s postgame interview…

Draymond Green has some advice for Kevin Hart

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The Golden State Warriors are one of the most popular teams in the NBA this season for their play on the court. Off the court? They’re starting to get popular there as well. So in this new ad from Foot Locker, Kevin Hart looks to Warriors forward Draymond Green for advice with the launch of his “fashion” line. Perhaps Green should stick to racking up triple-doubles…

Untied shoes can’t stop Golden State Warriors

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — How impressive are the Golden State Warriors right now? Not only are they steamrolling almost every opponent they go up against, they’re doing it in increasingly impressive ways. Last night in a win against Chicago, for instance, the Warriors were able to score even when two pairs of shoes revolted at the same time.

Check out this play, where Klay Thompson and Draymond Green both stop on a play to deal with loose laces, and instead of burning a timeout, the Warriors just got the ball to Harrison Barnes, who went one-on-three and scored, no sweat.

By Nick Margiasso IV

Kobe is Kobe, people. So when The Black Mamba hits the road for his retirement tour, even the best NBA players of the day pay respect and lineup like kids in candy stores.

Cue Draymond Green, the NBA’s season triple-double leader, who seems to have waited his whole life to get Kobe Bryant’s John Hancock on his collectible kicks.

Get in the Christmas spirit and sing along with ‘Carol of the Dubs’

By Jeff Case

We’re a mere 10 days away from Christmas and a solid five-game slate of NBA matchups all day long. The best game of the day will likely be the NBA Finals rematch between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors in Oakland (5 p.m. ET, ABC) and the Warriors are already pumped for the showdown. Thanks to the creative efforts ofย Bay Area artists Ron Lennon and Wellsy, the classic Christmas song “Carol of the Bells” has been re-imagined as “Carol of the Dubs”.

Just about every player on the Warriors’ roster gets a mention in the song (which is quite catchy) …

Draymond Green gave Tom Izzo a nice gift

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — With an off day on the schedule yesterday, Warriors forward Draymond Green was able to go see his former college team, Michigan State, playing in a nearby tournament. And not only did Green get to see the Spartans in person, he happened to be there when longtime coach Tom Izzo, who was Green’s coach in college, was going for his 500th win.

They got the win, and Green presented Izzo with a gift for all he’s meant to him through the years: a Rolex, with the inscription, “Great start”…
