Never. That’s the last time the NBA saw a shooting stretch like the one Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors has assembled over the past few weeks. It’s been 45 years since the last instance of an NBA MVP being selected from a team that wasn’t at least 10 games over the .500 mark, but Curry has shot his way into serious consideration. He’s averaging 31.4 points on 49% shooting this season; the only other season in which he averaged more than 30 points was 2015-16, when he averaged 30.1 on 50% shooting — and was the unanimous MVP. Those Warriors were 73-9. These Warriors are 29-29. That’s the big difference, the biggest reason why Curry isn’t even more prevalent in the MVP talks. “He’s never played any better, that’s for sure,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “It’s been incredible to watch.” Bob Pettit and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are the only players to win MVP awards on teams that had winning percentages below .560. The award typically goes to the best player on a … [Read more...] about Stephen Curry shooting his way into history
UK Opposition leader Sir Keir Starmer’s disastrous encounter with publican Rod Humphris – now a viral internet sensation – is a textbook case of how not to win friends and influence voters on the political campaign trail. Step One: On encountering an impassioned voter completely ignore his concerns, even when he tells you that up till now he has been a lifelong supporter of your party. Step Two: Just to make sure that everyone knows how little you care for utter nobodies like this silly man with his inconvenient views, get your campaign staff to film you immediately afterwards delivering an off-the-cuff speechette stressing your contempt and indifference. Step Three: Step aside and leave the guy to the tender cares of your overzealous security staff… Politicians are supposed to serve the public, not ignore, belittle or abuse them. Starmer’s disgraceful performance in The Raven pub in Bath on Monday is now all over social media and, with any luck, will be the death of … [Read more...] about Delingpole: Why Stop at Starmer?

George Karl’s heart went out to Nuggets coach Michael Malone this past Monday night. All 50 million pieces of it. “When that stuff happens, you just get a heaviness — your stomach gets ugly,” Karl, the former Nuggets coach told The Post when asked about Jamal Murray’s gruesome knee injury. “Those moments, you have trouble speaking. It’s just like it freezes you, and it’s hard to say anything. It hurts.” He’s been there. On April 4, 2013, Karl’s Nuggets experienced a shock to the system similar to when Murray went down Monday night at Golden State. It was eight years earlier that Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari blew out his left knee during a home win over Dallas. Like Murray, the Italian was the Nuggets’ second-leading scorer at the time of his injury. “(Murray) was the man,” Karl said of the Nuggets’ star guard, who tore his left anterior cruciate ligament while driving to the hoop, a fall that ended his season . “He and (Nikola) Jokic took turns carrying the team, and … [Read more...] about Jamal Murray-less Nuggets “still can make noise” in NBA Playoffs.
