.Sports: Why We Should Be Cheering — Not Jeering — the Warriors

As the Golden State Warriors take a break for this weekend’s All Star festivities, it’s an easy time to pick at the negatives. It’d be easy to note that at 26-29 and 11th place in the West, the team isn’t in prime position to make the playoffs. It’d be easy to reason that the team lacks a strong interior presence, even after signing David Lee to a six-year, $80 million contract. And it’d be easy to complain that Monta Ellis, the league’s fifth leading scorer, was completely snubbed from Sunday’s All Star Game. (Actually, that last one is pretty tempting. )
