"Down. Wow. It is been spoken like up to Portland kid, huh? No, no, It's not Daddy. I'm talking about the numbers. These are facts. He's the best clutch shooter in MBA. Yeah, that's not anything against step. It's just he is. You put that in your piece. I think that you know the NBA for people who don't know the MBA has this clutch that which is what What's the final five minutes to what? What is the clutch stat parameter in within five points and with him during the final five minutes of the game and his numbers during that stretch, just absolutely saying he's Permitted by far leading the MBA points. Believe he's shooting like 60% from the field like 55% from three like this insanity, it was insanity. And then in the way he celebrates him, too, with just that ice cold body language like Yeah. Just going to the grocery store. That's all that's all. I'm doing so good stuff a couple more just on the charge Call last night. Chris Mullin I thought was real good after the game on TV, saying Listen by the rules. The rest made the right call. But his argument was in basketball. You shouldn't reward a player for fallen down. You should reward the player who's beating the defender is taking it aggressively to the basket. I thought that was pretty good point. You know, you've watched enough basketball at this point. You see what Molly saying there and how That's pretty tough that you reward the guy who slides it now he did the right thing. But Molly was arguing that that rule should be changed. I I agree with that. I think it was the right call given the rules, But I agree that the rules should probably be changed. You know that. That's the tough call for any raft in that situation, especially with the game kind of on the line. I actually thought they made the right call, but it was tough. Really tough for sure. Last one for you, Connor Connor Letourneau. The Chronicle is just a little bit on James Wiseman. You know, they want to see continued development. The only got 11 minutes last night. Four fouls I would imagine tonight, you know, with dream on out. And hopefully he he'll play some more. But what do you What do you see? Since he's come back from the wrist? It's been maybe a stalled out month, right last five weeks or so, What do you What do you seeing and thinking about his development? Yeah, He's uh he has been up and down, which I think is to be expected from someone who's 19 years old has helped that he played six amendments in college didn't have a summer league didn't have any preseason games. So many obviously started the season so strong in the national televised games. I think people let their expectations for him. Run a little bit rampant. You have tol when you're judging games wise, and you have to keep contacts in mind what he's doing Overall, you look at his body of work right out for a 19 year old. It's pretty incredible that it's harder for big men sometimes just the NBA again and wings and, you know, Right now he is averaging more points than any 19 year old big In modern MBA history average more than Kevin Burnett more than Dwight Howard. So I need to keep all that in mind. I personally think that the Warriors need to be really happy. With that pig. Still, even even though I'm a little metal balls going off, I think James Wiseman is a better fit long term, And I think he has all the potential in the world would be a perennial All, sir, but You know, he's the fact that he missed him. 10 or so games with that wrist injury didn't help, and I think he's gonna benefit from having a little bit of an All Star break. Um, but he just has to figure out the nuances of the game, the nuances of the warrior system. He's still out of position a lot. Um, he's still make some bad decisions on the floor. But he has all these hands of ALS. Like you worked hard, smart, He he. He listens to coaches, so I have no doubt that by the end of the season Will be, you know, playing that a franchise caliber center level. Yeah. I'd like to see him get more minutes. Two in the second half to just kind of amplify that that that growth So all right. Well, listen to that will be interesting. Know Steph know, Draymond. We'll see if you break plays, and we'll see how they respond. Very tough back to backs up. We'll keep reading in the Chronicle, Connor. Thanks for coming on. All right. Thank you. There is Connor Letourneau of the Chronicle Warriors Know Steph, no dream on tonight. No dice, I know would be nice to get like you said, though. Be nice to get Kelly. You bring back out there that would help a little bit, but still without drama. I mean, it's just like, Yeah, it's tough. We said that game in Charlotte was a lost the moment Stef walked off the floor. You like that's a loss. Totally. Those guys. I'm talking about heavy wigs goes off tonight to weigh wigs me, Damian. Lead catches fire. Yeah. You guys had dream on and stuff with him When you walked in here was something happened to him on, you know, I mean, I'm reenacting that whole bit now. Very good. Get all right. Well, listen, we thought our way through a tough loss Thursday.

"The. Warriors Awkward The San Francisco Chronicle's in being podcast I'm your host Connor Letourneau today, I'm joined by brand hills host of the popular warriors held podcast with Golden State preparing for mini camp we looked at what the warriors to try to get out of these group practices. Bram thank you so much for joining me back on the PODCASTS. It hasn't been that long, but it feels like it has been. I've been alright. It does feel like it's been forever. Every day in independence is like dog years feels like it's seven eight days for normal days. So it's been a while and I've been okay man. Yeah that's good I. Mean I feel like? We're all going at different paces with with handling this. You know I know some people are getting their second or third wind right now no other people are really. Feeling it and I, know for me it feels like every other day I have a different I have a different mood about it. You know one day I'm like you know this isn't so bad the next day I'm like I'm so this can maintain a mood for an entire day your way better than me I switched to those moods about every twenty minutes and if I'm being transparent and honest with you, I did have a major change earlier. This week I, had would call the Klay Thompson Surgery I literally had my. My acl repaired and as a consequence, I'm on enough pain medications right now connor to kill a small horse. So if I just stopped making sense and entertaining, keep it if not let me know and I'll try to I'll try to bring everything back together. I appreciate you power throaty. So coming on the podcast when you might be a a looping is better, that's better entertainment, my books I know you're working as well. All right. So hopefully, your bosses are okay with that. I don't know if it's working or jess performing malpractice on day to day basis but you know, let's not let's not really explore that there's no up upside so that So I I wanted to chat with you today. We're minicamp because there was a ton of speculation, a ton of. For a long time about whether the warriors actually be able to pull this off and it looks like they are They started Cova testing this week everyone's kind of arriving into town. And then starting the following Monday, they will be quarantining for forty eight. Hours in a in a hotel near Chase Center and then starting next Wednesday they'll be starting a week long. MINICAMP where they'll be practicing daily and in kind of getting caught up to speed with everyone and you know the it'll be interesting because as far as I know, everyone's going to be there clay will be available kvant should be available We will be there and then they're also going to have a belief five. G. League guys guys. who were on the Santa Cruz warriors last year just to kind of I think mainly, just kinda round out the practice numbers and have some depth in the scrimmages and what have you but for a team that hasn't played. Basketball. A really even been together in any capacity since March. I think it's really important because we're we don't even know in next season starting. It's probably it's they announced the other day that it's not going to be after Christmas from what I've heard it could it might not be too like February. Maybe. Even March which I don't even want to. Fathom that right now or because that's just depressing a depressing thought but. The NBA is trying to maximize their chances of having actual fans. In the arena, so they're gonNA. They would ideally wait till there's a vaccine. That being said I mean without this Minicam they potentially an entire year without being around each other so It's I think it's extremely important. I think it's important to, and I know that most of the body of today's podcast is going to explore why were excited to have this some weird and someone who roots for him but a quick just follow up question because I know that the minicamp was coming but I don't know if logistics when they after they clear all these hurtles they get through. The quarantine, they get all the testing, then they show up to chase for that next week. Is it a bubble environment? Like are they literally staying together for seven days and not going back home or is it just like any other practice after they get through all the the Cova testing they'll be going back and forth from chase and back outside the white. House. Yeah there it's there. It is basically a bubble environment there. I don't think it's quite as intensive as what's going on in Orlando but basically the entire time they're going to be. Either in one hotel are one of two hotels right next to each other and they're going to be pretty much around each other. The entire weeks they're going to be having team dinners bussing together to the arena you know getting tested daily doing doing all that stuff it's not mandatory but as far as I know they do expect pretty much everyone be there that's not official yet, but that is the hope So I'm I'm doing actually a story later in the week that will get more into the logistics and I still have to do some reporting for that. So I don't have like every detail completely down but You know it'll be It'll be interesting to one person that might not be there is dream on his his his fiancee is You know pretty far along in her pregnancy and. I think I. Think Grandma needs to be pretty careful. So. I I wouldn't be I don't I don't think he's officially informed the team whether or not. He'll be there but I I wouldn't be shocked as he wasn't there for understandable reasons So. There's there's a lot to get to and I guess. Michael first question would be for you. Just what is the biggest thing you're going to be looking for from this? minicam. But what do you think should be number one on the warriors? Well, let me say just personally selfishly, I'm just excited to have warrior centric basketball stories in my life again I. I'm enjoying the bubble connor, I've been watching it you know non stop I can't wait for this final four but I also miss reading specifically about the waiters having you off of your hiatus and writing pieces again, it's been phenomenal and the idea that we actually have stuff to cover. Now I'm really excited for but as far specific, there's a few things I'm excited for the words, Opportunity.

"Ball that would that would do so much more than what they're talking about editor allow for more pitching changes. It wouldn't take any time. I would agree with you. But every mountain is different. You have to get used to pitch. I pitched in high school. I know tough cookie. Warriors, go on the road in Houston. The floors different. Sorry, tough cookies get used to it. But the warm up on the floor though before the game. Sorry, go do your warmest before the game. Okay. Yeah. I'm sorry. Different. I know it is tough cookies. Okay. All go out there and pitch. That's what I say. You want one warmup pitch find one warmup pitch. So you can get your foot in. I to me got that is a waste of time to have guys go down there and warm up for for fifteen minutes, and then come into the game in warm up some more. What's interesting about this three batteries to me is that the San Francisco Giants essentially one three World Series because Bruce bocce is managing. That's right in micro managing the bullpen and having left special. What he does the best. And now you're gonna take this away out of the game. That's I again, again, I got a lot of questions about that. One. Yeah. That's why it called raise retiring Bruce knew about this role. And he's like he said the same thing Katie said earlier this year that why I'm out baseball's basically just trying to reduce the dead time. And you're gonna see a lot more offense to these changes. And that's that's I know that's what they're looking for. I know that's what the giants are looking for. And if you indeed are worried about the giants offense.

Demarcus cousins, I think to the concerns about Willie be a good citizen a good teammate. You get him around. These guys actually everything I've heard about DeMarcus cousins, he's a fun loving guy. Great team may good friend him and drain on a really tight. I don't see that. Being an issue at all matter of fact, guys like cousins. You know, kinda wear their emotions on their sleeve and really will kind of tell guys the truth kind of tell them how it is. I absolutely think that he's actually going to be terrific for this locker room and everything I heard after the K D dream on thingy was that cousins was one of the ties that binded. So his impact has already been felt on this team from the periphery. And now it will be felt on the court fifteen minutes for cousins tonight five of eleven from the floor three of four from downtown. Matt is terrific sign. If he's got the range dialed up. I'm sure that'll be a little hit or miss, you know, especially in the beginning. But through down that jam early. Nice little bounce pass from Kevin Durant. You saw the vision. We'll see how they use them on the pick and roll will he be rolling off and shooting then on the defensive end to. I mean, you know, when when teams, you know, run the pick and roll on the warriors. And is he going to switch? I mean, I can't really see DeMarcus cousins right now guarding wing players. But hey, he's you know, he's athletic enough. If I suppose, but I think they want probably avoid that at all costs. So I don't think it's really gonna matter much in the grand scheme of things. I mean, the warriors are playing so good offensively right now that it's probably a little inconsequential. What goes on on the defensive end? But I thought they did a terrific job tonight. I mean, they held the clippers to to ninety four points. The clippers were four of twenty five from three point range tonight sixteen percent because the warriors didn't exactly blow the doors off. I mean, they put up thirty seven threes and only made nine of them tonight. But they ended up winning this game by eighteen and ultimately, they win it going away.

Meningitis threat scared team in March

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Meningitis threats scared team in March by Connor Letourneau, five months after the warriors. David west alluded to some unreported adversity that the team had encountered on its way to a second straight NBA title the issue in question finally has been revealed, according to the athletic Golden State dealt with a team wide meningitis scare in mid March. The concern stemmed from an outside vendor. Who prepared the teams food daily after contracting? A contagious bacterial form of the disease. The vendor took time off to fight it eventually returning to work with the team per the athletic. The scare was at its height between a road game at Minnesota March eleventh and a home game against the Lakers March fourteenth the team went to great lengths to ensure that the disease didn't spread to its players and coaching staff. Most warriors players and some members of the basketball operations staff got vaccinations, Golden State, even. Move to practice to oracle arena while it's practice facility. Located at the top of the Oakland convention center was sanitized the practice facilities team dining room. Also was closed briefly for cleaning forcing players and coaches to eat elsewhere doctors address, the warriors about the situation and try to ease any concerns about the meningitis spreading this all came early in the warriors late-season rut when they dropped ten out of seventeen games and were candid about struggling with complacency. They also were dealing with injuries to multiple key players making the health scare more worrisome. It was just a serious health scare where for me. It's just something like, wow. West now retired from the NBA told the athletic that was in my mind at the time. It was the entire team that was affected. It was crazy. It was the heart of the season. It was something that again, it showed the strength of the organization that had got through it to win the title, though, the organization declined to comment on the. Thematic story. A team spokesman confirmed its details. Injury updates forward. Draymond green has been ruled out for the rest of the team's road trip. He's not gonna play on this trip. But he is making some strides Golden State head coach Steve Kerr said after shoot around Monday at state farm arena. He had a good workout this morning. Everything is positive. He ramped up his work. But the timing just won't allow him to play on this trip. I think it'll be shortly thereafter, Green's been dealing with his cO issue for almost four weeks. Not including the November thirteenth win over Atlanta that he missed because of suspension Green's been sidelined eleven of the past thirteen games including the past nine by injury. The warriors have two more games Wednesday in Cleveland and Friday in Milwaukee before returning to the bay area. Head of Monday's game against Minnesota at oracle forward. Alfonso. Mckinney has missed the past nine games, including Mondays with a sore left foot. However, he's prob. Table for Wednesday's game in Cleveland.

"He's got that breakaway speed hard to bring down. Yeah. We've got a sixty eight yard or that. He had. Yeah. He's average. He hit the hit the outside. And it was like he was in the end zone or. Oh that was a twenty yard no sixty eight yards. Yeah. Because that's how quick the end zone. You're going damn about this his yards per carry the last three weeks seven point two seven point nine eight point three. I'm going to call right now four point three. And that's what he's getting this week. All right. You know, what that would be a win for the forty Niners for sure if he's averaging six point one on the year. He's had let's see one two three four five six seven eight nine games or he averaged at least five yards of Carey in a game and his season low, by the way for any three point five in a game where he had seventeen for sixty against the tough Houston team. And you're right Broncos have won three in a row and the teams they're chasing all have tough match this week. So this'll be a hungry football team on Sunday. Now last week. We saw a team that is playing for playoff positioning and a team. That's not hopefully, the forty Niners can rise to the occasion. And if nothing else you don't play spoiler a little bit. I think Shanahan would love to beat the Denver Broncos. You know that team that he grew up holding their their wire. Headsets right. I I have a feeling there. You know, what this team screw draft position. I don't care about that. Man. Win a game. I want them to win a football game. Stance because there's nothing guaranteed. There's nothing here. It is what it is. It is what it is. And you know, the the talent has been obviously challenged a little bit in this this year due to injury and all that stuff in the depth. And hey, you got to bite the bullet move on. But hopefully, create some some habits some good habits towards the end of the year. There's important for weeks. Guys. Yeah. And that's it. Because that tape is gonna follow you everywhere. All right. We will get into the Golden State Warriors. They want a game against the Cavs tonight.

"Like, wow, I think that was possible eighty four points most ever under Steve Kerr some teachable moments after that, I think to sake on her. Yeah. I think that the the buckshot like sixty five percent on two pointers. They kind of have their way. The warriors just were not insane defensively they were reaching in late getting out of position. And a lotta I hate to say once again be repetitive. But a lot of that goes back to dream on not being available now the emotional leader. But he is the quarterback of that defense. He organizes that you know, he tells guys wear to be especially those younger guys who are still kind of figuring things out. So I just I think that was part of it. But a lot of decent ever and day. Just like you said did not bring the energy, and they didn't seem emotional into that. Yeah. All right. Well, it sounds like it's not too serious for Steph or dream on. So hopefully, we'll get back out there. That's the the best news that we can report tonight. And oh, yeah. The bucks are pretty good. But we already knew that. Hey, Herman gong get some sleep, brother. I appreciate your time. As always we'll talk to you soon. Okay. Appreciate it. Good stuff, man. Connor Letourneau nice of them to come on late night. Man. I mean, these writers there, you know, gotta get sent there. They go to the pre game. And know they get those pre game quotes out send out some tweets forgot his in that starting lineup and they start to build their story throughout the game.

"At oracle insult injury. Steph curry left the game with a left addict or strain did not return. We're going to get the latest on Steph on dream on and just the scene from oracle with our good friend Connor Letourneau of the chronicle always nice enough to come on late night. And we appreciate that Connor will some man how you doing. Good. Thanks for having me guys. I'm literally walking out of the arena right now. Awesome. Dude. I appreciate it. I know you probably had a long one tonight. Get us an update on Steph curry anything to report, we know he left the game. How serious is this will what's what's the latest? Yeah. So he's getting an MRI tomorrow. It does seem serious. You know, you can kind of get a pulse in locker this kind of stuff us joking around laughing in the locker room and no one on the team seems overly concerned. You know, the injury itself isn't one that should would normally keep him out very long, obviously, it's November. So they're going to be very cautious with him. I could see him missing a few games. But this isn't anything anyone should be overly concerned about you've got a couple of pieces out already, you know, post game you talked about curry in the blow out, and then you talked about Yoenis in the warriors inability to slow him down. We know that he's the Greek freak. We know. He's amazing your six now. I can't believe he's already been in the NBA that long. Just twenty three years old. And we know he's the real deal. No dream on tonight. If I'm Draymond green. Like when it comes down to figure out how much money he's gonna make next. What is contracts up just roll the tape of this game? I mean, it's like when he's not there. I know Kurt talked about a post game and said that wasn't the reason it wasn't the only reason, but it was definitely part of it not having on in there. Oh, it's a huge part of it. I mean, mostly they just did not get out for this game. But I think one of the biggest reasons why they've been playing so well this season is that dream on his best. You know, he's been emotional leader. He's also big huge defensively and also really getting them into their offense finding oh command of at a very high rate. Yeah. And so you saw them just out of sync on both sides of the ball tonight. And I think a lot of that has to be put on the fact that dream on was announced there. You know, the reality is when you don't have dream on. It's kind of a trickle down effect, you know, especially defensively, they don't have anyone else who can really fill that. Void Jordan Belle was great tonight, Damian Jones had his struggles Kvant solid, but he's he's know during my green. So there's just a big drop off there. Yeah. And while these guys are still kind of finding their way, and even you know, some of these hidden gems, I know you wrote about that in the in the chronicle the warriors ability to bring in these guys the fonz mckinney's the Jonas to rep goes. And this goes back a couple of years with a lot of the the answer Larry role players they brought in. But even McKinney struggled tonight. And you know, the other thing to Connor one ask you about we've seen this in the last, you know, really since the warriors have been dominating the way, they have other teams get up for these games. Huge. And the Milwaukee Bucks have gotten off to a really nice star. They feel like the Eastern Conference is there is for the take is vulnerable to be taken now that LeBron's in the west. So they've had a really nice start to the season. And they've had this game circled for a couple of weeks. Now like this is their litmus test. How do we stack up against the Golden State Warriors in for them? I think this was a huge building opportunity. But we've seen this teams get up so much play the warriors because they know if they beat them everybody's going to be talking about it. Oh, definitely. And the reality. Is this team is very talented. I think everything's kind of coming together for them at this point. It's been a couple of seasons now where everyone's kind of been waiting on them. Okay. Got ya. They have the franchise guy. Ask some good, you know, secondary options and Middleton's pretty solid. But when are they going to break through in really be a team to see her, and I think bringing in the Buddha holder from Atlanta was huge. I think he's wanted. A better coaches Maliki has playing a really uptempo style, which I did not understand why they weren't doing that before under Jason Kidd. And so it seems like they're in a position to really challenge that eastern constant number one spot in Eastern Conference obvious Tronto Boston legit, but they'll be in the mix. And I think what you saw the night is just this is gonna be a real a real threat in the east and not just this union. But for many she is account Connor Letourneau of the chronicle. Joining us on kmby tonight on the guest line. Ryan Kobe with your warriors lose to the bucks tonight. How about Ersan Ilyasova? Here's a guy started his career in Milwaukee. And I just think he gives them another presence in the post. You know, he's got a decent game at both ends of the floor. I think this was kind of one of those under the radar signings that has really added to the depth of this team. I've always liked or some Ilyasova. I think he's one of those guys kinda like Jonas Repco type who who is underrated. But can really play basketball and everywhere you can do it. All yeah. Yeah. Now, he he's he's the type of guys that I could see signing with the warriors. A couple of years. I mean, he's he's just that guy who I think people who know basketball. No, he's a really good player. But a lot of people underestimate of. Yeah. And he just he's fit in nicely. And boy you look at the box man, their deep and they've added to this bench. I think that was one of the issues they had, you know, for the last couple of years they had Jaanus in. That's great. He's a superstar. But if you want you want a superstar to reach reaches max potential, you have to surround him with players, and you know, obviously Middleton's been there brogden, but you know, they bring in Bledsoe from Phoenix. And then you know, this this other cast of characters on the bench. I mean, Tony Snell was really good. I'm sorry. Oh, yeah. Who was killed it tonight? Twenty one minutes seven of eleven where did he come from? Portland's. Yeah. He was Sacramento. Pick out of Notre Dame played the past couple of seasons. That Portland was actually pretty good for Portland last year off the bench. But I really like what they're doing over there. Like, you said kind of remind me a little bit of what Philadelphia obviously they didn't completely tank, but they got a couple of pieces and they're building around that steadily. You know, obviously staff made the comparison yesterday to the warriors from Steve's first season with them. I think I think it's not a crazy comparison just in terms of how they're building roster, obviously, they got in the draft. And then and then doing some nice shrewd offseason moves to build around them. So I like what they're doing a lot. I think they're going to be good. And I think Bledsoe's probably really happy to be playing alongside a superstar got out of Phoenix. And I'm sure that's you know, reinvigorated his career. I got some good young stars. But that's that's about it. Right now. Draymond green. What's the latest on day? When are we going to see him back? That one is definitely not serious. You know, there could be back in the next couple of days. That's not something they're overly concerned about the thing with him is. Dinged up already a bit this season. He was so dig up last year they wanna give him the time he needs. So, you know, they're going to be extra cautious for these guys. Are we you still remember? Don't really matter. It's great that they're treating them a little more than they did last season. But they will have an awareness of the fact that, you know, they just need to stay stay healthy. And and get it right for for April. Yeah. And this was the first game Connor I felt like this season that they they weren't like emotionally invested in the game. And you know, so far this season we've seen that they have kind of re up their their passion level for these regular season games. And I think part of it, and I wanna get your take on this. Because this is one of my theories one of my my debriefing theories that the warriors last year, you know, they they were vulnerable in the west. I mean, Houston won the west they had to win a game seven on the road. They were down three to two in that series. It could've all slipped away. And yeah, I know there were injuries, but they were disinterested. In. I think they were lucky. You know, Chris Paul pulls doesn't pull his hamstring. Who knows if the wears would have been in the finals last year. I mean, probably, but you could make a case that the rockets could've won one of those. Games of Chris Paul was healthy. My point is I think they realized that they came a little close to coming up short the way they did in your to undercover against Cleveland. So coming into this season. I kind of felt like there was a commitment around this team to say, you know, what let's reestablish ourselves. As the very best team in the NBA, leave nothing to chance would you agree with that? Oh, yeah. Definitely. I mean, I think I think that that's kind of been their mantra. It'd be curse says to enjoy it. But I think those two things go hand in hand. I think the biggest thing is that they learned last season. That you know, regardless of how you treat the regular season. It's going to be the same time. It's going to be six months until April. Right. So you might as well make most of it you might as well enjoy it. You know, you might as well build. I thought dream on made a good point a few days ago. He's talking about this. He said we didn't have a process last season. You know, we just basically snooze through regular season. And then woke up during the playoffs. We didn't actually treat it with the the attention and the fervor that it deserves when you're really building towards something. So they're trying to do it the right way. And like like, you said I mean throughout he is these guys are human dream, my wasn't there. I don't I don't think it's a big deal that you have a dud once once every ten or eleven games, you know, they're still ten and two right? And this was a good team. So not a big deal. Yeah. And you didn't have Draymond green. I think the most troubling aspect for me. Well, it's twofold one is is the fouling because that's been a recurring trend and eighty four points in the paint..

"They get that. Actually, if they even are going to need it. But. We'll Jonas from three. They say he can't shoot from out there. That's true. But yeah, I mean, it's it's pretty much influx right now. People around the league are going. Yeah. Right. What are the words gonna do with their thirteenth guy? Wow. It must be a tough one. You know? But it does mean something around here. And you know, there were times last year when they realized that Nick young and Caspi we're not what they were looking for, you know, and they'd like to really Jack that up a little bit. So we'll see I think I think David west he's playing it smart. I think he's waiting to get a little deeper into the summer to see if you get said it's to play again because it's it's of like football. You don't think about it? You know? And all of a sudden it comes around you feel it in the air and just. It gets a hold of you. So, but I agree with you. I think he's probably on his way to retirement, and and so they'll have that spot. But you know, I I really have no ideas look at the free agent market. You know, what they're thinking. I mean, heck when they signed him orcas cousins who can predict anything it's gonna be fun nothing is ever dole. I mean, as I say all the time is the beat writer, all you root for good stories, and this there's going to be plenty of good stories next season this past season didn't feel like there was quite as many as the previous season. But I feel like that's going to change the season. We're not going to have to read about complacency over and over and over we're going to be able to write about cousins and how he's coming back from his injury and how he fits into everything. And that's what I'm excited about so, Bruce, I appreciate you. Joining the presser today. Appreciate you. Joining me on the pod it's been a long day. Hopefully, we'll have you on here. Again.

"On the shell pennzoil performance line is connor letourneau of the san fran chronicle connor we've had several days off in between games for a warriors team that didn't exactly put forward a good performance in game number two do you think that benefits them at all i think so i think they were able to take a hard look at the film see see what they did wrong but more importantly i think they're able to get right physically which is most important with a guy like steph curry who is not look himself a game to you know he says that he's fine physically there's no problem but anyone who watched that game does that something was a little off you know he african one to tweaking something he was a vague about what it was said it wasn't an issue but you have to wonder if that that impacted his performance against you because he was a step slow defensively coming off ball screens and he just never really get into a rhythm offensively so i think having a few days was big for him conor spokesman about steph curry and we saw how successful the rockets were in targeting him on defense in game two what adjustments could we expect to see steve kerr make coming into game three yeah you know i don't think they're going to make any major adjustments i think when you're talking about this deep into the play offs the whole idea of adjustments is a little overrated it's more minor tweaks i think they're they're actually pretty confident and what that does defensively he was actually a really solid in game one on the team to play like i mentioned earlier i think he was a step slow because he wasn't maybe totally right but they're not gonna overhaul what they do or anything to try to avoid having steph you know in those situations i think they're confident that he's going to be able to bounce back so i don't expect any major changes i you could see a little bit more kvant when he he's been actually really solid defensively he's as good as anyone on on those guards off ball screens so maybe even a little bit more come on we're with connor laterna on the hang out he's a writer for.
