Back on Dec. 27, the NBA's Golden State Warriors stood on shaky ground. Their record was 17-13 and they'd just recently begun crawling out of a mini-slump that already had some fans pining for trades and the firing of coach Mark Jackson
Then All-Star forward David Lee took a local blogger to task, a meme was born and — as if propelled by some potent Internet mysticism — the Warriors haven't lost since. Today they're the NBA's hottest team
The Warriors had been beset by injuries throughout the early part of this season, disappointing fans who entered the season anticipating high-scoring fireworks displays from the team's talented full roster. So, after the Warriors beat the Phoenix Suns on the night of Dec. 27 with their entire core available, Lee took the opportunity to point out to blogger Jordan Ramirez of the WarriorsWorld fan site that Golden State's season had actually gone quite well when playing with their full squad.
