Hello and happy Wednesday.

Yesterday was Opening Night in the NBA, and the San Francisco Giants neighbor, the Golden State Warriors, kicked off the season against the Brooklyn Nets. The Warriors won, unless they lost — it’s hard to say, since I’m writing this at 2 p.m. on Tuesday. If you’re still unsure who won, head over to Golden State of Mind, where you can find the non-2 p.m. version of me telling you what happened.

Anyway, the Warriors and Giants have long supported each other, which I expect to only grow now that the Warriors have set the search parameters on Zillow to “Mission Bay,” and “> $100,000,000” and bopped over the bridge to truly and honestly become the Giants’ neighbors.

So naturally the Giants wished the Dubs good luck as a new season got underway.

I hope for more crossover content from these franchises. So on that note, let’s find some fun pictures of the Giants and Warriors crossing over.

It also reminded me that the first article I wrote for this website was in 2018, when I found a Giants parallel for ever player on the Warriors roster.

So, in conclusion, go Giants, go Warriors, put in your basketball takes here, or tell me who the current parallels are on each team’s respective roster, or at least tell me what you head for breakfast.
