OT - NBA thread (pre-season)

I estimate only 10-12 Primates care about baseball, and this thread is the only thing keeping this site alive.

A’s closer said Golden State Warriors ‘treated us like s–’

Oakland A’s closer Liam Hendriks says he doesn’t follow the Golden State Warriors, who were the A’s neighbors before their move to the Chase Center in San Francisco for the upcoming 2019-20 season.

“They treated us like s— over here so we don’t care for them much,” Hendriks said to The Athletic’s Ethan Strauss on Tuesday morning.

Hendriks has played for the A’s since 2016, the year after the Warriors won the first of their three most recent NBA titles. He spoke about the difference between how the Warriors were treated by the A’s when they “sucked” and how the Warriors treated the A’s as they ascended to dynasty status.

Mind you, hasn’t this been the Athletics story since it went from being owned by people who wanted a strong team to people who wanted to shake down someone in the East Bay for a new stadium?

Warriors get trolled by Athletics after Khris Davis extension

The Oakland Athletics are keeping slugger Khris Davis around for at least two more seasons. The team agreed to a two-year, $33.5 million extension with Davis on Thursday.

Locking players up is something that deserves to be celebrated, so it’s no surprise the A’s took out a full-page newspaper ad announcing the signing. The team’s decision to poke fun at the Golden State Warriors in that ad, however, was a bit unexpected.

The ad read, “KD commits to Oakland.” The team used the same phrase in the press release announcing Davis’ extension, so they were obviously referring to Khris Davis and not the other KD in town.

Remember when it felt like abuse to take cheap shots at the Warriors, instead of the exact opposite?

OT - NBA thread (Playoffs through off-season)

I estimate only 10-12 Primates care about the NBA, and this one only cares about the NBA thread and the Cubs so I have no idea what the rest of the website cares about.

OT - NBA Thread (2018-19 season kickoff edition)

I estimate only 10-12 Primates care about the NBA, none of whom knew the old thread would get closed, thus detracting from what this site is really about: the baseball playoffs, maybe?
