By Nick Margiasso IV

You can’t do better than courtside seats. That is unless you do courtside seats at a Warriors game.

Ticket holders in the front row of Saturday’s Golden State-Oklahoma City game not only get the closeup experience, they get a pretty good set up for their feet — and collectible case — too.

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.

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…

Meet Noah Cutler, the kid who can dribble just like Steph

By Jeff Case

It started with an Instagram video a few weeks ago. From there, the dribbling skills of 11-year-old phenom Noah Cutler spread like wildfire to the point that the ball handling maestro was warming up at Oracle Arena with his hero (and inspiration for the video), Stephen Curry.

The folks over at Warriors.com detailed Cutler’s trip to Oracle and his parents pointed out how his dribbling showcase has garnered not only media attention, but a bevy of positive comments from unknown well-wishers, too …

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — A few weeks ago we saw an Instagram video from a kid named Noah Cutler, who could do a pretty good Steph Curry impersonation in his backyard.

Steve Kerr still has the touch

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Before becoming head coach of the Golden State Warriors and winning an NBA title in his first season, Steve Kerr was one of the greatest long-range shooters in NBA history, winning five titles as a member of the Bulls and the Spurs. We’ve seen Stephen Curry show off his incredible shooting range regularly for Kerr, but in Cleveland earlier today ahead of tonight’s Warriors at Cavs game (TNT, 8:00 pm ET), Kerr showed Curry that he can still knock it down from way outside…
