The Golden State Warriors were voted the most fun team to watch in the NBA.

They are backing up that claim with authority. Stephen Curry messed around and got a triple-double and Andre Iguodala was a part of two plays that you simply must see to believe as the Warriors clobbered the 76ers 110-90 on Monday. Our Warriors Insider Monte Poole knows a very good reason why opposing defenses will have a very tough time containing these guys, other than, you know, the 70-foot alley-oops.


Could the A’s actually be interested in bringing back Tim Hudson? “Huddy” would fit in perfectly with the A’s talented rotation. He won 92 games with the A’s as a member of the vaunted Big Three. Come to think of it, all three of those guys are technically available. Barry Zito could be acquired for pennies on the dollar. Heck, so could Mark Mulder, if you could pull him out of retirement and find a magical remedy for his shoulder ailments. If you really wanted to get nostalgic, Rich Harden and Ted Lilly are also available.

— World Wrestling Entertainment Heavyweight Champion (and Boston native) John Cena sent David Ortiz a  WWE Championship belt.

On Monday, they showed him on WWE Raw with the strap. He may soon receive a challenge from Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick.

— This is the most riveting video you will watch all day. Two airplanes crashed into each other and nine skydivers cheated death. The fiery crash was caught on their helmet cameras.

Time for some links. We’ve got some good ones today.

Field of Links:

Someone in Brazil found out how to make Justin Bieber go away. Peg him with a water bottle and he simply leaves. Brilliant.

This Kentucky player scored the most improbably own basket ever.


Watch Tiger Woods hit a golf ball from Europe to Asia.

Chuck Liddell kicked a soldier. Ouch.

King Felix’s castle burned down.
