If you can’t beat them, steal them?

On the heels of the San Francisco 49ers’ 34-31 Super Bowl loss, the locals have already put their best foot forward in the hope to put last season’s bitter ending to rest.

This week, the 49ers exchanged a sixth-round draft pick for Baltimore wide receiver Anquan Boldin in an effort to make a Super-Bowl return, albeit, with a better outcome than last time around. Boldin had six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown against the 49ers in the Super Bowl.

Bay Area Sports Beat: The Warriors' Sleeves and What You Need to Know Right Now

Golden State Warriors

Your shoulders are missing, Golden State Warriors.

Underscored, perhaps, by their World Series-winning and Super Bowl runner-up counterparts, the Warriors have been in the business of making statements in the NBA this season after undergoing a lull of mediocrity in recent years.

Their recent statement was both with an exclamation point and, well, something else entirely. In breaking a 16-game losing streak against the perennially successful San Antonio Spurs, the likely playoff-bound Warriors both showed the NBA that they’re not messing around and that they’re fine with bucking modern basketball fashion trends.
