The death of the Ultimate Warrior was just the latest grim reminder that professional wrestlers continue to drop dead from something other than old age at an alarming rate.

The pinnacle of the Warrior's career was WrestleMania VI on April 1, 1990, at SkyDome in Toronto. Warrior defeated Hulk Hogan in the main event to win the championship. Warrior is the 12th wrestler who competed at WrestleMania VI to have died -- one-third of the card's working roster. The oldest was just 63.

As a point of reference, of the 44 starting players from that year's Super Bowl between the 49ers and Broncos, only one has died: Denver defensive end Ron Holmes, who was 48 when he passed away in 2011 from diabetes and coronary issues.

Reasons for wrestlers' dying early -- grueling travel schedules, painkiller abuse, steroid use -- have been well-documented. The passing of the Warrior at age 54 from what is suspected to be a heart attack just days after his induction to WWE's Hall of Fame only underscores the issue.

For a while, The Warriors were wearing their alternate Oriental style uniforms during games, presumably to celebrate Chinese New Year.  

But I wonder if this is decorous, because Sangeet says the Chinese have a 100 year plan to subsume the USA, a plan they started in 1955, I think Sangeet said

Sangeet says there is even a display about it at the most prestigious museum in all of China, they aren't even keeping it a secret, maybe that is part of the plan, I'm not sure

Yeahbut, the Warriors also wear those uniforms because they have a lot of Chinese fans.

Well, basketball started to get real popular in China with the RISE OF YAO MING who played on the Houston Rockets. And the Chinese started to like the Los Angeles Lakers, because they are a Pacific Coast team, and because of superstar players like Kobe Bryant and whatnot. And then the Lakers started to suck and the Warriors, also of the Pacific Coast, emerged.

And the Chinese also started to like The Warriors because their star, Steph Curry, is such a light-skinned "black" that Steph almost looks Chinese if you squint your eyes. And their other guard, Klay Thompson, looks even more Chinese.

STUCK INSIDE OF MEMPHIS WITH THE MEMPHIS BLUES AGAIN?

VULTURES BEGINNING TO CIRCLE GOLDEN STATE


The Warriors are already getting a glimpse of how an early postseason exit would play out.

Zen master Phil Jackson is sending veiled jabs on Twitter. Sir Charles Barkley is on his soapbox for being right about calling the Warriors too relient on shooting jumpers. Some fans are already taking to social media, calling for heads to roll.

And you know Mark Jackson's working on a new line about the greatness of the caterpillar.

If the Warriors don't come back in this second round series against Memphis, which holds a 2-1 lead, they'll have undone all the love they've received and reclaim the label they worked so hard to shake: disappointment.

They'd be a 67-win tease, exposed by a Grizzlies squad that hasn't won a title but has been the barometer for title worthiness. The Warriors would be acquitting their critics, who refused to see Golden State as a real force, and convicting believers, who touted their dominance.

Make no mistake: Starting with Game 4 at Memphis on Monday, the Warriors' legitimacy is on the line. They are faced with losing their seat at the true contender's table, perhaps never to get it back until they make some real noise in the postseason.

The vultures are (rightfully) circling the Warriors, ready for the Grit & Grind Grizz to finish them off so they can start picking away at the franchise's best team.

But beyond the ridicule, the embarrassment, the 12 months of being called frauds no matter how well next season goes -- bowing out early has deeper ramifications for the Warriors.

Because if Barkley is proved right, what does that say about the Warriors roster?

The failure to be triumphant against a traditional power team only calls into question whether the Warriors' style and parts are sustainable in the postseason.

Many have said the Warriors can't win with Andrew Bogut, a defense-first center who can't score in the low post.

Many have doubted whether a backcourt of 3-point shooters, though Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are undoubtedly special, can hold up against the rigors of the playoffs. And it would seem they'd be onto something since neither Curry nor Thompson could get high-percentage shots when he needed to in Games 2 and 3 and neither gets to the free-throw line much.

Some have questioned whether the Warriors can really win with a 6-foot-6 small forward in Draymond Green serving as a 3-point shooting power forward. And they'd at least have an argument since Green, who has been stellar this season, looks so small trying to defend the Grizzlies' big men.

If the Warriors' critics are proved right, and Memphis bounces Golden State in five or six games without much resistance, general manager Bob Myers has no choice but to re-evaluate his roster. The problem with that is the Warriors have serious commitments to these players.

BLOW-OUT ON BEALE STREET

DUB NATION REJOICES, CRITICS SILENCED


BALLERS HEAD BACK TO BAY


As a result of the wild success the Warriors had putting Andrew Bogut on Tony Allen in a modification of the Hack-a-Shaq called, “Don’t Bother With The Grindfather,” the team has reached out to Don Nelson, currently buying up hunks of Indonesia between steins of Fiji Bitter, for a look at his playbook, which featured more strategic variations than any other in the sport’s history.

In other words, be prepared for Leandro Barbosa standing on Brandon Rush’s shoulders while wearing a single overcoat when Kosta Koufos is in the game, putting Festus Ezeli at point center and having him bring the ball up, and assistant coach Ron Adams wearing a bejeweled turban and staring ceaselessly at Memphis’ Dave Joerger while chanting, “I am your father, Luke.”

And then Game 5 will happen, Allen will overcome his shredded hamstring, hit seven threes, and the Warriors will be regarded as potential failures again. It’s called Harmonic Nonsense, and it is the way of our people.

Clarification- when the narrator of the STRENGTH IN NUMBERZ inspirational short film above says that the winner of Game 5 usually wins the series, what he means is that when a series is tied 2 to 2, the winner of Game 5 has won the series in 82% of the available data sets.

Now, if a team is down 3 to 1, that down team has come back to win the series only 3% of the time, according to the available NBA data. But if the Houston Rockets win Game 7 on Sunday versus the Los Angeles Clippers, they will be one of those 3%.  

And they will be feeling very big in their britches if they go up against the Warriors for the Western finals.

that is not to be confused with a chance of 3% for it; but a 3% for a stranger who doesn't know what you are talking about to bet right (or wrong)

Q. Why is a team from Memphis called The Grizzlies?

A. Because they moved from Vancouver and were too lazy to change they name.


Q. How many real live grizzly bears are there in Tennessee?

A.  Five.  And they are all at the bloody zoo.

Steph Curry had 34 points, but Little Riley Curry is getting more Tweets.

"Golden State" is a nickname for the state that no one much uses ( it used to be on license plates), but why the b-ball team is called Golden State- that is a weird story, I was planning on addressing it, but this playoff fever has taken over the Topic ... for now i will say that the Warriors are the only team of the four major sporting leagues identified by a state nickname : THIS HAS BEEN A "QUESTION" ON FINAL JEOPARDY ON THE JEOPARDY SHOW

a clarification: it is confusing for some in Walpole or Newport News that the word Golden appears over a NorCal suspension bridge that isn't the Golden Gate bridge - that truly is the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge ( really a collection of bridges) that is known locally as The Bay Bridge ... this is implemented as iconography because The Warriors are promoted as "The Bay's Team" because they are a unifying team in a region where baseball and football loyalties are divided.
