In the first episode of the Bumpin show, we discuss who's the better receiver: Odell Beckham Jr. or Randy Moss?
After breaking the North American sports start of a season record with a 24-0 start, Curry and the Golden State Warriors were stopped last Saturday at Harris Bradley Center by the Milwaukee Bucks.
All Star shooting Guard Klay Thompson had a few words after Saturday’s game and said “ We missed shots. They didn’t shut us down. No one shuts us down.”
Based on his comments and attitude, he’s technically saying the Golden State Warriors doesn't have any worries. However, the league was shocked at the fact that the “best team in the NBA” lost.
JR. Smith was rooting for the Golden State to win until they host the Cavs because he said he wanted to end Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors streak on Christmas Day. “I was upset, I’m not going to lie, I wanted them to go undefeated until they played us” JR. said.
The Warriors weren’t sad because the lost, they were just disappointed at the fact that the streak is over. Star Power Forward Draymond Green said in the postgame locker “ Y’all thought we were going to be sad.”
That one lost doesn’t mean they’re season is over, they just failed to beat the 1972 Lakers winning streak which was 33. Stephen Curry after the game during his interview he said a few things like “ thirty-three was within our grasp”.
He was hungry for that streak and you saw it in his eyes before every game. Also Curry also mentioned that he was fatigued after the over-time lost.
Curry also mentioned that he laughed after the game because the celebration. "Oh, it was a nice celebration. We do remember that stuff," Curry said. "We were kind of laughing at some of the stuff going on.
It was a big game for them. Friday will be a big game for us." Stephen Curry and the Golden State warriors are ready to get payback on the Milwaukee Bucks tonight at 10:30PM at home.
Be prepared to see tention and a lot of anger tonight.
Carolina Panthers @ New York Giants
Sunday at 1:00 on FOX
Amari’s Pick: Carolina Panthers
Why I’m Right: The undefeated Carolina Panthers look to go 14-0 this week in the Meadowlands as they take on the New York Giants led by standout receiver Odell Beckham Jr. who has been torching secondaries week after week, making some of the best catches you’ll ever see. But even with Odell’s heroics, I just don’t see a way the Giants can pull this one out. The Panthers are on a roll and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Especially coming off a 38-0 shellacking of division rival Atlanta Falcons who boasts one the best of the best receivers in the game in Julio Jones and Josh Norman pretty much held him in check as the Falcons were shut out. Expect to see a similar result this Sunday with Odell Beckham as Josh Norman will follow him everywhere he goes. He will also have the #3 ranked defense along his side as the panthers only give up a shade over 300 yards a game. The Panthers aren’t only undefeated because of their defense, their offense is legit as well as they have the #3 rushing attack in the league rushing for over 141 yards per game, to go along with the MVP front-runner Cam Newton throwing darts to his receivers up and down the field. This doesn’t look good for the Giants as they have the last ranked defense in the NFL and that will be their downfall as the Panthers will win this game quite easily.
Cleveland Browns @ Seattle Seahawks
Sunday at 4:05 on FOX
Amari’s Pick: Seattle Seahawks
Why I’m Right: The Seahawks these past few weeks look like the Seahawks that played in the Super Bowl the past two years. The reason for this is that their defense has finally got back on track and look like to me, the best defense in the league. Even better than the undefeated Carolina Panthers defense. Last week the Seahawks took a major blow as running back Thomas Rawls suffered an ankle injury keeping him out for the rest of the year. Rawls is the backup for beast mode Marshawn Lynch so this is a little concerning for Seattle as Marshawn might be out for the season with a sports hernia. However quarterback Russell wilson has been playing phenomenal lately throwing for over 900 yards and 13 touchdowns in the last three games. So in this one expect the mediocre Johnny Manziel led Browns to take a L this Sunday in Seattle.
The Golden State Warriors have broken the North American best start with an undefeated record of 23-0. They passed the St. Louis Maroons record of 20-0 set by the baseball team in 1888 as the best record in North American sports.
The Chicago Bulls 1995-96 team started off 12-0 as well as becoming the first team to have more than 70 wins in a single season as Michael Jordan just came back from his retirement and led his team into the finals for his fourth appearance.
The Golden State Warriors are on good form and haven’t played a team to slow them down. The 3 point King (Stephen Curry) is cooking and chopping each player that steps up in front of him.
Curry is currently the scoring leader, for field goals made, for 3 pointers made, and he is top 5 in free throws made. This man is up to a great start and is in the running to earn a back to back MVP recognition, and another chip.
The 72-10, 1995-96 Chicago Bulls, shut the NBA down with an impressive ball game that led them to win the NBA Finals. It was led by a man that’s known as “The Greatest Basketball Player In History”, and that man’s name is Michael Jordan.
In the 1995-96 season, Michael Jordan played all 82 games, 111 made 3 pointers and scored 2491 in the season. Jordan was the leader in points with 30.4, and leading wins shared with 20.4.
Stephen Curry, in the beginning of the season is at 6.0 wins shared. Ever since the former LA Lakers SG/SF Luke Walton joined the Golden State Warriors in the summer, they’ve been untouchable.
The Warriors played 23 games so far and have a total of 2663 points. The Golden State Warriors this season made a big difference this year and made history with an incredible start on both the offensive and defensive end.
Reviewing all these statistics on both of these teams will tell you that the Warriors are better than the 1995-96 Bulls. I’d choose the Warriors in Game 6 against the Chicago Bulls (95-96) team if they were to play in the Finals.
Brien McMahon’s Eric Van Der Els was named the Ruden Report Fall Player of the Year yesterday. Van Der Els beat out Greenwich soccer player Nick Bartles, New Canaan quarterback Michael Collins, and Darien defensive end Mark Evanchick for the honor. Although winning awards is nothing new to Van Der Els, this one holds a special place in the cross country phenom’s heart as it was won thanks in part to the his supporters. Four male athletes and four female athletes are nominated for the award, the winner for each gender from that point on is based solely on public voting. Van Der Els beat out Bartles by over 100 votes.
“Winning this award is a great honor especially with all the talented athletes we have in the FCIAC. I'm lucky to have such great supporters, including friends and family that helped me achieve this award.” Said the McMahon senior.
It’s been a busy fall for Van Der Els. After winning the FCIAC 1,600 (setting the FCIAC meet record in the process), he won the 1,600 and 3,200 at the Class LL meet, the 3,200 at the State Open, and finished second in the two-mile New England Championships. He also committed to the University of Connecticut to continue his running career next fall.
