ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The rapper Lecrae is not only popular in a general sense, but he is particularly popular among athletes. One of Lecrae’s biggest fans for a while now has been Stephen Curry, who tweeted support for Lecrae’s last album, Anomaly, before it debuted at number 1 on the charts.

Bogut, Dellavedova not intimidated by the Haka

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — This weekend the national teams of Australia and New Zealand played basketball against each other. Whenever New Zealand’s national teams play, they preface the games by performing the Haka. What is the Haka? According to Wikipedia, the Haka is “a traditional ancestral war cry, dance, or challenge from the Māori people of New Zealand. It is a posture dance performed by a group, with vigorous movements and stamping of the feet with rhythmically shouted accompaniment. War haka were originally performed by warriors before a battle, proclaiming their strength and prowess in order to intimidate the opposition, but haka are also performed for various reasons: for welcoming distinguished guests, or to acknowledge great achievements, occasions or funerals, and kapa haka performance groups are very common in schools.”

While New Zealand performed the Haka, the Australian team, led by NBAers Andrew Bogut, Matthew Dellavedova and Patty Mills, linked arms and stood along the midcourt line and did their best to look unintimidated.

Klay Thompson hits a shot from halfcourt (while riding a bike)

By Jeff Case

There’s an old basketball adage that for a really great shooter, his shooting range starts where he enters the building. Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson fits such a moniker (remember when he had 37 points in a quarter last season?) … and he made a little tweak to it, too.

Thompson’s range not only extends to just about any spot on the court, but he’s really good hitting shots on the move. And by on the move, we mean while pedaling a bike and launching it from half court …

David Lee gives Warriors staff free burritos

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Throughout their run to the NBA championship, the Golden State Warriors coaching staff and players spoke over and over again about the importance of David Lee, a former All-Star who was willing to accept a role coming off the bench. While Lee did end up logging playing time in the Finals, his sacrifice was often identified as being symbolic of the Warriors’ one-for-all mentality and teamwork. A few weeks ago, in order to clear cap space and give Lee the opportunity to get more playing time in a contract year, the Warriors agreed to trade Lee to the Boston Celtics.

Before he moved coast to coast, Lee wanted to give a parting gift to the Warriors staff members, who showed up yesterday to find free lunch from Chipotle. AS Warriors’ social media coordinator Julie Phayer tweeted…

And as it turns out, it wasn’t Lee’s first time dropping off burritos…
