Thunder fan pays tribute to Steven Adams

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — One of the breakout stars of this postseason has been Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams, who keeps getting injured but somehow stays on the court to provide rebounding and set solid screens, all while looking like a swashbuckling pirate captain. With his long hair, tattoos and curly mustache, Adams has cultivated a signature look, and last night in Oklahoma City for Game 4, one young female fan managed to replicate Adams’ look so well that even Adams was impressed…

Stephen Curry’s range is unbelievable

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — We know Steph Curry can make shots from deep — he won the three-point contest at All-Star Weekend and routinely makes shots from deep behind the arc. But yesterday, before Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, during his warmups, Curry went out to midcourt and showed just how easily he can knock down shots from the halfcourt logo…

Steph Curry and Adam Silver finally get their handshake

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Before last night’s playoff game in Oakland between the Golden State Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers, NBA commissioner Adam Silver was in attendance to present Stephen Curry with his second consecutive NBA award. But with all the noise and excitement, Commissioner Silver accidentally left Curry hanging when Curry tried to get a handshake.

But following the game, Silver and Curry were able to laugh about it and finally connect on that handshake…

Steph Curry is (almost) perfect

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Golden State’s Stephen Curry has been about as good offensively as anyone we’ve ever seen this season, shooting 50-percent from the field and 45-percent on threes on his way to a unanimous second MVP award. And to celebrate Curry’s historic season, the folks at 2K Sports have teamed up with Steph’s shoe sponsor, Under Armour, for a quick tribute. In honor of Steph’s jersey number 30, for 30 hours only, Steph Curry’s in-game rating will be bumped to a 99, the highest in game history. Eventually his rating will drift back to earth a bit, for a little over a day, it will be a ton of fun to play as Steph Curry…

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…

Messi has a present for Curry

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — It hasn’t been the best of weeks for Steph Curry, who injured his knee on Sunday against the Houston Rockets and is currently sidelined while he recuperates. But at least one person is looking out for Steph and trying to help lift his spirits: Barcelona’s dynamo Lionel Messi, who took to Instagram to leave a gift for Curry…

Stephen Curry plays football, soccer, baseball

ALL BALL NERVE CENTERStephen Curry is one of the best basketball players in the world, and as such he has reached a point where he’s playing basketball about as well as anyone has ever done it. So perhaps that explains why, before Golden State’s Game 1 matchup against Houston, Curry warmed up by trying out some different sports that he’s yet to master…

The NBA reacts to Golden State’s historic season


VIDEO: Warriors Numbers

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — With their win last night over the Memphis Grizzlies, the Golden State Warriors pushed their record to 73-9, setting a record for the best regular-season mark in NBA history. They broke a record set by the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls, who finished 72-10, and a record many people thought might never be broken. Here’s how people from around the NBA, including some Warriors themselves, reacted to Golden State’s record-setting evening…
