"On the guy named Spread Auerback, who is a utility player, um and and was undrafted out of Alabama, Uh, making very little bunny barely getting by on a day to day basis, but Cracked the everyday irritation for For the soon as a giant and actually just got promoted last week to hire Eugene so he could be one of those dark horse big League guys even though he was undrafted rookie All right, Carter, What do you think of these recent Kelly? You bray comments and what this means for a potential pairing. I had sort of moved on from the idea. But his agent is saying the two sides are on the same page is that just agents speak what's going on here? Yeah. I think it's a bit of agents speak. I think you always have to take everything within massive grain of salt. When you're going and talking to an agent, Um they all have an agenda. They want to boost the price of their Their client. And, um, but what I take when I listen to more when I pay more attention to is what Kelly himself actually says, because even though Kelly knows I think the business side of things he knows what he should be saying, To help his stock price. The thing I appreciate about Kelly you brah is that he wears his emotions on his sleeve. And when you ask what Russian he is going to give you a rock. Cancer and you if you listen to him on that podcast the other day with Chris hands, there were a couple quotes in there and and and just in terms of his delivery and his Kenyans in terms of how he was talking about the Warriors. It's really hard to imagine him. Coming back to the Warriors. He was not happy with getting demoted this past season have been put in a bench role. Um, he views himself as a starter. Obviously, he comes back to the Warriors. He would Have to be in a bench role behind Claire, and it's just It's hard to imagine him doing that. Whether you will have Opportunities to start elsewhere. And also they're going to be asking for 20 million Plus which I'll be honest with you guys. Kluber is not worth $20 million. She's not close to a $20 million player. The only reason the Warriors would even consider it is because They're so deep in the luxury tax that they can't bring in another difference maker free agency And so since they can, because they have his bird rights that can sign him for more. And so they would maybe bring him try to try to bring him back just to use them as an asset down the line, But Warriors don't see him as a long term answer. They don't see him as a as a peace long term at all. It would just be To try to get parliament to something else down the line. What's the likelihood this off season of a newsworthy trade? Something that involves Wiseman or the pics or both? Mm. You know, I'm starting to think it's it's more and more likely. We see a notable trade this offseason, but I don't I don't think it's going to be. You know that the iteration of the trades that we've been talking about, You know, we've been talking a lot about You know, packaging Andrew Wiggins with the with James Wise in the draft picks for an All Star caliber player. I'm I'm starting to believe that they're going to keep Andrew Wiggins, and that if they do make a notable trade, it'll be, uh it'll be wise men, the two draft picks and then someone like a Jordan full, uh, for a difference maker. Maybe not an all star but a difference making Caliber player, Or maybe even just to move up in the draft number three or number four to take a jail and greener. Jalen sucks. The Warriors don't want to keep both draft picks. They don't want to get that much younger. They will if they have to, but they they would prefer not to. Connor, Letourneau, San Francisco Chronicle again I really enjoyed diving deep into the Luciano. Experience and stories of great work on that and and fun to have you on today. I thank you so much. Of course, any time appreciate. All right, there goes Connor Letourneau with us on the, um, A guest line mark weather in for Papa and lunch today and tomorrow coming up next, there's breaking news. About James Harden, and we need to take this a step further. Sean McVeigh as the John Lynch on helium, the side by side vocal evidence is damning. And next mark Wheeler with you on the sports.

"Is it came back dented the last night? Yeah, he sounds more and more like Mongo Mongo. Wanna bite Vince? He sounds like Alex cares. Don't know. He looks sound little punch drunk. By the way, Speaking of its liberty, we haven't What did you think of them? What was that technology with the deep fake or their dad? But then right before kickoff, they did it again. That was that was interesting when it I think all that sells a weird and creepy e didn't like, and I'm not anti technology. I'm pro technology. But you know, they've been using that a lot I didn't like in the Al Davis thing. So maybe I'm jaded. I just thought the Rosell's like going doing alive Wax museum didn't like it. I like it. Man always talked about the bus talking. So that was in the Super Bowl trophy. That's one birdie was weird, but it was weird. It was not a fan. But then again ever since I saw the 30 for 30, I didn't put in like it in that one. Finally Steve Kerr. We've talked about the minutes and for some reason it broke out stuff is playing his usual minutes under Steve Kerr and Steve Cruz said after last night's game, they're not gonna run staff into the ground. We're counting on having stuff here for a long time. Many, many years ahead and I'm not interested in grinding brew this season, which is already a very difficult season. Given the cold regulations and just the nature of the games themselves, you know, easy, Yuri. Empty stadiums. This is for me for our organization, or we're not. We're not drawing stuff out there for 40 minutes to chase winds. We've got another game tomorrow. I want stuff to be playing at a high level for many years, so we're gonna stay very disappointed. I keep in my 34 35 more He's been 33.8 his last two Healthy seasons 33.4 this year. That's about online with what Steve Kerr has played him in his entire career, and he had a great explanation there and we talked with Connor Letourneau in Conroe attorney said the same thing, which is He's not going to run stuff out there in a non championship year on a weird season, he's gonna be over a long time. We talked about signing a contract extension. That's exactly what he's going to do, and he's not gonna burn him out now. Yeah, we talked about it at length. I agree with all that. I just wonder what the owner thinks so, But he said there he described a year It's empty arenas and stadiums. But all that I just wonder. Steve's a realist. He knows what he's got, and he knows what he does not have. But I wonder how that goes over with the owner. I think he just he wants to throw out there. I don't mind saying I wonder how it goes over with the owner. Probably not as good right because he's paying a luxury tax. He wants them to be a playoff game or team and as good as they can be. Yeah. I mean, the coach looks at things differently. You have to be a realist where the owner is the pseudo GM and Bob, you know, executes it, But he's very involved. Just wonder how he interpreted that. But we are about 10 minutes, We will give you the sweet, clean caboose pistol. I have taken a quick look at that will do that at the bottom of the arts Pop England only here on the sports where you were listening to Papa in Lund on both sides of the dialogue, KNBR, 1045 FM and 6 80 A M.

"It's a generous kind of material is going to join us. In a moment from the Chronicle at Con underscore Krahn. He's got a good piece out today. Talking about Tell Steph Curry is undervalued in the M V P race. He was looking at some Early M V P lists in a couple of don't even have stepped in the top 10. Some have him around nine or 10, so he'll explain to us why he's overvalued and where he would have stuff Curry in a much too early M v P race will look at last night's game against San Antonio. Look ahead to tonight's game as well. With Connor Letourneau in just a moment. Fact he's ready right now. Colonel Maternal joins us, courtesy of The human guest. Lynne, How are you? Hey, Thanks for having me, shura. Thanks for being with us. We appreciate it. Before we get to your piece today when you talk about stuff being undervalued the EVP race. What was your opinion on Dreamin chucking the ball at the rim with about eight seconds left last night. As he said. It was the smartest, dumb play ever. I understood what he was trying to do. It didn't work out. Sometimes he is. He's too smart for his own good. Distinct and to the point. It was the dumbest play ever made by a very smart player, I think is the way to look at it. All right, getting back to staff and The one last record is going to hurt is n V P candidates? See, I mean, we are a third of the way through the year. Now we're gonna play 70 two's. They played 24. But I do want to get your thoughts. Connor on what's happening on social media, and I think we gotta be careful in the media. Not to react what fans are reacting to and then you know, make that our stories and what we talk about on shows and lying to questioning because Steve Kerr since he's been here 14 15. He has reduced steps minutes Mark Jackson played him in the high thirties or Low 30 38, then 36 a half and since he's been here, 32.7 34 to 33 4 32 33 8. Withrow last year because he got hurt 33 8 So and Mike Brown, you know, has a laminated detailed minute allocation. It's pretty standard. I mean, they juggled a little bit when Durant was here with Steph would play the whole first quarter but by and large throughout his career He's played the entire first quarter, the entire third quarter and half of the 2nd and 4th quarters s. So what? What is your thoughts on if Steph Curry should be playing Maura or not? First of all, I think you make a really good point there. Um, you know, it's a fine line is as a sports writer is a journalist because you want to gauge fan reaction. You wanna You wanna get a poll somewhat? Fans care about because you know your job is You know, you understand what what people want to know about and give them what the information they need. But at the same time We are supposed to be experts in this field. We are supposed to kind of wade through that. And I do think I was a little surprised to see that become such a huge story line yesterday. I'm like, Why is this being talked about right now? Yes, they lost this game. But you know they've lost last games like this before. When he's come in midway through the fourth and work. This isn't a story line. So why is it a story line right now? Um, I didn't fully understand it. Uh, I think that the Warriors have a system that works for them. They have rotation pattern that's proven to work for them for years now. On. But when you're talking about someone like Steph Curry, it's all about trying to extend his prime as long as humanly possible. And you know a game here a game there. In February. You know in the grind of the regular season is not really what matters. Ultimately, it's about making sure he's at his best when he's 35. 36 years old so that the Warriors can extend their window and chase the title for as long as humanly possible. Once clay comes back, so I think people are kind of losing sight of what ultimately matters. The truth is this season doesn't really matter, Guys. I mean, they want to. They want to speak into the playoffs. They want to hopefully win the first round series. But in the grand scheme of things, is that really a big deal? Matters is one clay comes back next season and putting together a legitimate title contender. Do you need to make sure that that is best when that happens? Well, said Karna attorney who is joining us from the Chronicle Talking about some people screaming for more minutes for Steph Curry's 30. He's tied for 32nd League 33.82. Just put that in perspective, LeBron plays about 34 a half and you got some 30 year old guys Durant's playing about 36 will explain about 36. You're talking about a couple of different minutes. 30 year old guys are running in that range. Let's talk about your piece today you first of all you talked about Steph being underrated as an M v P candidate, some having top 10, some don't even have been there. Some have near the bottom as far as the top 10 candidate. Tell us your thoughts on why he's so undervalued. Yeah. I mean, First of all, you look at his numbers. Um, they're they're not that far off from what he did in his unanimous M v. P. C. 20,015 16, which is widely considered the single greatest Offensive season. An MBA history, Um just from a statistical standpoint and you doing it under more difficult circumstances, you know, he doesn't have play next time. He doesn't have Andres a dollar. He doesn't have Shaun Livingston. He's got a bunch of young guys have been starting a 19 year old at center most of season. Um you know, they have Improving guys playing major minutes on D he's dealing.

I don't know if we have to have a pole a additional holders Big Bowl today for best pizzas. I don't know what kind of toppings people like. But it is National Pizza Day, which there's a lot of debate about pizza. When you say, Well, it's what's the debate. It's a personal thing. You eat your pizza, Ali my pizza and we'll all be happy. But I'm trying to slim down John and you're gonna bring up teacher today and kill me. It's a national pizza Day. It's not my fault. It's my life. Every day is pizza Day. So this is while you're all celebrating National Pizza Day, I'm gonna take my pepperoni mushrooms sausage and stash it over here in the corner for a while. It's a nice one. Give a preference on crust, though, like some, like, you know, I like a Neopolitan like a traditional Italian pie. Some people like a deep dish like a Chicago destroyed style of thin. Japan's There's no. There's no right or wrong. Gino's east in Chicago is legendary for the deep dish pizza. And I've gone there many, many times in a lot of times all by myself and just be quiet because it gets messy. That's the one pizza That is a lot like Kelly. You break junior. It's very inconsistent. It can be really good. Panic envy, sloppy lasagna, and I'm not a big lasagna guy, So it's just it's how it's cooked and So I don't like eating pizza with a fork and knife. That is a major mistake. An Italian culture. S so that's sort of a Don't know what the genesis of that is Chicago land. I don't know if they did it in Italy years ago. I don't think so. I think that's more of a North America thing. So that's a New York style is very thin. New York style can be really greasy asses. Well, um, so it's very different. New York vs Chicago There's no right or wrong. Gino's East is incredible. You don't need to if you're going to get you know two slices of regular Then slice you don't need more on one of the deep dish. Cause you're gonna be stuffed. I mean, it is like a pizza lasagna, which to me is It can be sloppy and messy, so I would say By and large, there's more consistency with a thin crust pizza. But I've had some killer Gino's east some good deep dish even here in the Bay Area. So there's no there's no right or wrong. There's no hard and fast rules on that. I did not tell you this yesterday because we're very busy. But I did go toe to Condor of l A. Which is a great place. Filippo. Did he take care of you, My man. They took care of me.

"I don't know where it goes from here. But I know I've never been that impressed with him and Other questions gonna be, you know, Where's that shop? I got 1/7 opening. Uh, And we'll see where it goes. Sounds like urban Meyer's got to get the Jacksonville job already assembling the staff there, and you know what they're gonna do with the first pick, so That's the lower there. But I wonder who else would be in play for Harbaugh signed a lengthy extension right after we departed on Friday, Easy to be in Ann Arbor for a while credible. Well, you know, but he's taken a huge pay cut, and then the numbers go down, down down. He's not making the same money that he made before, so I don't think he had any realistic chance is to coach in the NFL, and it's got a bug him that urban Meyer, who's never coached in the NFL, and Jim has, and that's for most of his success has been in the NFL. Meyer just jumps right ahead of him. But you know, based on what he did in the big 10, you'd hire him, too. But he's never coached in the NFL. Now it'll be interesting to see what Jeff Laurie and Howie Roseman do with this opening in Philadelphia. All right. We're gonna flip it over to the words coming up. Next.

"Green doesn't like playing on holidays. Here he is. God, man, We got a game on myself for a birthday. That sucks. That was my first reaction. Um And then followed by game on Christmas, and I'll miss my daughter first Christmas that sucked, too. But other than that, I have a job excited to be playing basketball. But you wanted my first reaction. That was my first reaction. Miss that guy. Yeah, because they asked him what they thought about the opener and what he was dodging is. I gotta guard Durant not happy. That's going to be great to see you. That's gonna be juicy and he's got a garden and he's got a guard Johannes. I mean, who else on this roster? You know Congar Durant. Maybe No. One Congar drew in the MBA, including drama. Um, you know Co I struggled guarding of such great game they had. They went to overtime when Durant was here and stuff was out of the game in Toronto that was epic. Oh, G and an O b guarded them better that night. I don't know. There aren't very many guys that guard Durant. Now is Durant completely. Durant. I don't know, but that that's what they were getting at is the first game. He got a G gotta play Brooklyn and Kevin Durant. What good's that gonna be? Yeah, no doubt. Well, the seas compensated quite well, Thank you very much. He doesn't take into account guys like you because you missed a lot of stuff. You know, it's not all you play my part tonight. I'm not going to rant when I have to worry. Yeah. Yeah, You got to do lots of stuff. That's how it goes. That's an occupational hazard. It's not exactly on and finally Steve Kerr. We told you about the video that the war was released yesterday. James Wiseman look like he's doing a lot of good stuff. But obviously it's a video here is Steve Kerr speaking. A dream on, Green says he's gonna be huge. And James Wiseman's development. And on defense Dreamin was talking James through the possession. His team, their teammate, a stop. They razed down the floor and it ended up with dream on throwing a lob. James for a dunk, and it was a perfect snapshot of You know what we hope to see what warriors fans hope to see. And what might be coming. You know the defense of synergy between those two and then, um, offensive connection with that lob so Very exciting to see that happen. There you go. I'm a degree. You could see obviously, the lob that's in the video, and you could see there was some still pictures of German kind of helping James Wiseman and his We talked a little bit earlier with Connor Letourneau. He's gonna be excited. He's 19 years old. He's finally back onto the court, but hopefully can settle down and You said it just looking at the video, Not they may be taken out of context. But he did a lot of cool things. Lot of good things in that video. Yeah. Matty pulls the story up online at NBC Sports figure that time. So you know, you wanna sit in a combo signs that the max deal with Milwaukee and the point that Monty makes his the Warriors already have their Johannes and it's James Wiseman. And you know Wiseman 7 Ft. Johannes is 6 11. And it says a 74 wingspan. Wiseman's wingspan is 76 iana says a nine to standing reaching a max vertical beyond 12 ft. Wiseman has a standing vertical reach. That you know that 96 and max vertical beyond 12 eat so and you know, you're honest Was that the number two pick in the draft? Was he 15 Take him a little while to get gone. What if this guy becomes the Warriors version of Johannes and it may not happen overnight doesn't have to When I was ready, But let's just see And he said, You know, he's got a defense of mindset. That's what he is so It is exciting. He's not gonna play tonight, and I don't know if he's gonna play tomorrow night because they got they got to get him on the scrimmage. They may scrimmage tomorrow, so they're going to sack. We're gonna bust up there, maybe, like right now. Then they're coming back. They're not going to stay up there and check into a hotel because I gotta go through covert protocols and come back to testing all that. So maybe place Thursday. Against sack. Maybe doesn't imagine his first NBA game. No preseason would just be Hey, it's Kevin Durant. Yeah. How much you think they run on the first two games of the year? I mean, if he's one of your best players right away, and he might be Just let him go. Let him play. What's the big deal? What's gonna happen now? He's not gonna break your school play well, and that's I think that's the philosophy now in in every single sport, right? I mean, I've always thought that you got to get a guy out on the court or on the field or whatever the case may be. And let him play. I mean, obviously, through the history of time guys have sat behind certain guys, but look, he's a 19 year old with his second overall pick. The clock starts ticking on the contract, Get a guy out there and let him play. See what he can do. You picked. You want to get us excited. What if he rejects Durant's for shot? Just get out here. Be awesome. Do radio you. Well, you talked about this earlier. That's great point, which is Look, I know he's 19 and Ellie. Ellie has three games. This and that, but Don't guys do it all the time and come in. I know that they're probably we're gonna take him a little bit slow. But again, I'm overly excited by the video. I understand that. But clearly the guy has skills, an MBA body and MBA athleticism. Let's go throw him out there. Let's see what he is. Well, it'll be great. I mean, I'm thinking about who could guard Durant. Besides dream on, and it's a tough cover for Draymond. You know, Wiseman's got the length Now it's gonna be interesting to see. And although creates witches and You know, I'm sure that creates witches were staff asked a guard Durant what shall be interesting, But on the other end, you know Durant's gotta Gardas. Well, it's going to switch and make Durant go on guard staff of 30 ft in the basket and see how he does there, but Gonna be an interesting week. John. One week from two night they open the season in Brooklyn against Kevin Durant agree. It's crazy, and then fast grounds, not the NBA knows what they're doing. We're gonna put them, uh Gonna put scripts Santa Claus and screw John of court together stuff and Katie right away. Then he got dream on as well. Yeah, gonna be good. Alright, Kyrie. Let's not forget kind of Irving. No doubt. Talk. He finally talked to the pond yesterday. That was they talk to the ponds. Yeah. Look at the chessboard the ponds. Didn't doctor the horses of the Kings or anything like that? Watching Queen's gambit must be good show. Really good show. Yeah, I gotta give me those pills she takes before bedtime. I'm taking you to play chess on my ceiling at four in the morning. That would be great. I'm not trying to give that away. But when she Well, look, she's taking by the way. What are those? I don't know. But they're obviously addicted. She got over the ambitious once she got she got she got rid of it. Later on. She cleaned up. It was a great show, by the way, Really? Gambit.

"I know is it feels like forever since some and we're gonna see him Saturday. In a preseason game against Denver. Connor Letourneau is on the case covering the Warriors for the San Francisco Chronicle. The sporting green as it is known, and Connor, welcome back to the Murph and Max. So happy basketball season and how you doing, man? I'm good man. You know, just just doing what everyone's doing trying to navigate this new reality trying to cover an NBA team for my apartment, you know, so it's an adjustment but figuring it out. You guys are not. Are you guys allowed when the Games start? What's the media protocol? Yeah, We're a lot at home games on ditz. Not not as much. Media is normal. It's kind of going toe. Mainly, be. You're just Corby crew at the home games. Um We have to get tested and all that, but that's really it. Um, you know, even after home games, we're gonna be doing zoom calls for our media availability. We're not going to be allowed on the event level. We're just going to be there to actually watch the game in person. But beyond that, it's just zoom availabilities. I'm in phone interviews. Um, so it's It's a new world, but we're figuring it out and just kind of non basketball again. Huge splash about what was it 34 weeks ago when You guys in the Chronicle of the story that Joe like it was gonna unveil his own testing policy, and, you know, let people in based on the lake of tests and it received so revolutionary and so lake of like, but that's oration Dub Nation Right operation He had the name. It seems like counter is, Is that just completely gone out the window right now. For the time being. Ah, I don't. I think you know, I read the letter from San Francisco to Joe Lake of basically saying that it's not something that they can attempt to do at the start of the season, but that they would reassess down the line one. Hopefully, the Koven numbers start to go back down. But, you know, I think it's a good plan. I actually think the city like the plan and a lot of ways just give him with The fact that the numbers are spiking in the city shutting down this is not really the time to be attempting that, so I think there's a world where that could happen later in the season, but it's not going to be the case starts here. All right. We'll start with the on basket the basketball questions by asking about something years down the road, and that's Steph Curry's career. You guys all wrote the big story Monday. Just kind of catch us up here on that whole concept of Steph signing in extension, so he has two years left, including this year. On his deal. There are sort of pre set formats that he can sign extensions, too. I guess my question is if Steph does sign another contract with the Warriors Just how financially massive is that for Joe Lake? A man? Can they even build a team at that point? Good question. It would be extremely financially massive. Uh, that being said the warriors. They're going to do whatever they need to do to keep stuff in a unawares uniforms as long as humanly possible. This is a guy who is the franchise. If you look at You know the reasons behind their dynasty. You have to start with Steph. Hey, was there before you even Joe Lake of got there before? You know Bob Myers and Steve Kerr. It all starts with him. Words understand that on they're going to. They're going to do whatever they can to make to make him an awards. You uniforms so that in his career and you know, Steph Wanting to be with the wares forever. So it's looking like that will happen. But yes, definitely. I have major financial cost. It's interesting if he if he decided Fine his extension before the season starts, he would end up taking less money than if he waited until next year. Hey, could sign the summer for I don't have the exact numbers in front of me. But for three years Um, a maximum deal And then if he be signed Next year before years with form or money. Um, regardless of whether or not he signs in our next year. No, it's going to be insane when you're looking at, like 2022 23, which would be his first year of the new deal, You know you're looking at a Max deal for DRAM on a Max deal for Clay, a Max deal for Andrew Wiggins, an iMac deal for Ah, first step. So, um, you know, there are they already have an MBA record payroll right now, and that looks like it's going to be the case for years to come. I just wonder how long Joe Leko can do this? I mean, I don't forever eyes that everything brought up that lake of just has an infinite desire. To spend in an infinite well of cash. Well, in my conversations with Judd. I've talked to Joe few times in the past month or so. He You he really need. He's very insistent that this this coded thing cannot last forever because if it lasts another year Like pretty much every team in professional sports will be in trouble. Um, but, you know, assuming that they can that we can get the vaccine and nip this in the bud within the next year. Where is still confident that they'll be okay. Going forward? You know, they haven't laid anyone off. They have not furloughed anyone during this entire process. Keep in mind. This is a This is a franchise that is valued by Forbes at $4.3. Billion s O Yes, They're losing tens of millions of dollars because of coded, but They have a nice cushion. They're going to be okay. Amazing stuff. All right, Connor to the to the court. And what news that of all things. James Wiseman's arrival comes with a positive covert test, as does dream on greens now. Not a death knell. But it does mean that there are away for 10 to 12 days. And it means that certainly this Saturday's out and then you'd even wonder about the season opener at Brooklyn, December 22nd. What's the latest on these guys? What can they do? And what should Warriors fans expect about when they can even You know, show up on the court. Yeah, it's kind of difficult, And that's one of the hard things about the current setup is, we're just going off zoom calls. And so it's kind of easier to get the party line from the team rather, and it's harder from a reporting perspective. The kind of dig a little bit, which is why It took a week for us to figure out who the actual guys you tested positive or in James Wiseman and Dream on green. We don't know exactly when they tested positive. We know that last Tuesday is when we found out they had, but it's possible that they could have found out a couple days before. Has started testing the previous Saturday. So it's possible that they knew as early as that Saturday. Um the good thing is that genes, Wiseman looks to be getting closer to return to the court. He was cleared, at least watch. Practice yesterday from the balcony overlooking the court on Watch, sitting next to size up a truly and kind of going over what he was, but he was seen so it's hard to know exactly what that means. But he has.

"Time we've ever been without the Warriors in our lives. Somebody cue the Billy Joel. I haven't been there for the longest time, by the way her John Lennon. I mean, I heard Billy Joel tell a really cool story about John Lennon. You might be glad to hear that. I got a positive thing to say about Billy Joe. He said that the night that he heard the news tonight that John Lennon was shot. Tragically. He said he was so destroyed it to know what do you know the story, Murph. You know this one? No. Yeah, he said he just jumped on his motorcycle, and he said he was so overwhelmed with grief. He realized once he was on the road because I forgot my helmet. I forgot my glasses. He was just like peeling down the road, and they said he went into a bar. And whenever he saw that there was a piano in the corner, so he went to the panel and just started singing and playing John Lennon songs and then as people realize, Oh, that's Billy Joel over there, they all kind of gathered around. And then he said, the next thing you know, like the whole place was singing Beetle tunes together, So there's a Billy Joel were the only one I probably ever offer that on Stern. What's that? Was that on Stern? No, I found it online. I was just like looking at different footage and different links last night. I really did like a little John Lennon kind of moment of reading the Breslin column. Of course I did. Four sided. Very good. That's incredible. Yeah, Yeah, It's pretty powerful stuff anyway. Yeah, I didn't think I'd get lyrics or lyrics and an anecdote. Well, you said it's been the longest time and I figured Well, no better time to introduce Hop song. That's his tribute to the fifties. Right? Can I tell you a little secret? Between you and me? Nobody else gets to know. Actually kind of like that to him. How about that? Don't tell him that bad things are happening. Things are happening. Okay? Don't tell him just like things were happening with the Golden State warriors as they get ready to kind of easing back in that Discouraging news about James Wiseman and Draymond Green. I want to clarify some from yesterday. Go ahead when I said they tested positive. They tested positive on December 1st Not not yesterday's okay. So in other words, there well into their quarantine, and in fact James Wiseman was in the building yesterday. I guess which means I don't know what that means. Covert wise it But he was not allowed on the court, obviously, but ready for this. He was standing on a balcony. So if you've been to the new chasing their practice facility they have Sort of that balcony Workers, offices and all those guys and all. Totally Yeah, yes, And he was on the balcony watching practice with Zaza. Nice and they said Zaza was taken him through, like some of the sets and kind of pointing to, you know, places on the court where he should be and all that. So I don't know if you just wanna Let your mind real Andre Zaza raising a young James Wiseman very there, but I liked it to Connor Letourneau has a big story about Jordan pool in today's Chronicle. We're gonna have Connor on today at 9 30. Cool part of the news. Is that pool cut his hair. All right, so okay, Well, that's okay with me. Yeah, dreadlocks. It says Here. Congo sources. Those close to Jordan pool believe the new hairdo represents a personal transformation of sorts. Polly, I think it does, because a lot of people that I've not this is what I've heard, anyway, A lot of people like you heard Kravitz talked about this saying that like when you cut dreadlocks It is. It's some kind of I can't speak the obvious. I've never had dreads, but people who have dreads say that when you cut them it is It's like a transformative kind of experience. Where, like your all of your past is that God? I don't know. It wasn't about me that I've had the same haircut for 45 years. Yeah, well, that you're I don't know You got a steady hand. I guess I don't know, you know, And you do actually murdered does have a pretty steady him. So little guy in history, the world. Hey, Um, current did say Jordan Pool has been the most consistent worker on the team. Who said that curry, Steve Steve Kerr Soaker. OK, good. That's good to hear me out. He's been a Chase center, and he says he's also cut back on his social media, which is a good idea for any of us. I agree. I think these are all very positive things. So he shaved the dreads. He's hard working, and he is off the social media or America it back. That sounds pretty positive to me. It's the year of Jordan Pool or the year of Steph Curry there, so yeah, he kicked around. Recently the idea of signing an extension with the Warriors. I get to the point where I lose track of how much money Joe Lake up can truly spend like It's he have. A wellspring of unlimited resource is Don't worry about the hip wellspring Polly. He e. Don't know how long he could do this where you just keep the he's He don't think he's paying luxury taxes like it's a bridge toll. You know what I mean? He's like for what we're hoping is a four seed like this isn't like Heard Marcus on with copes today on the leadoff spot. And Marcus. You made a joke about something about title title teams. Um, on the way out cops, he said something about like it, Z. What was the joke about somebody? He said something about a title team. And Marcus said, Well, then we won't be talking this year or so. Just like that. When I talked to mark I was joking. I said, Yeah, we'll catch up with you down the road, one when the Warriors make their title run, and he said that it will be for the rest. It won't be this season, he said. That was pretty interesting. Jellicles paying over $300 million for a team that almost that nobody in the NBA believes can win a championship. No, probably not this year, you know, but again, like if you're a fan, I don't know what more you could want or ask for you guys like a dream.

"Obviously you kicked that game off on Thanksgiving, and that was always the summer on Madden game. That's the big game. Dallas Washington Thanksgiving, right? And that's a 4 30 kickoff there. 1 30 ft At 30 Million Americans watched that game and it was to losing teams a lot on the line as far as NFC East supremacy, but still The game got lopsided. That game drew 30 million people. They would not have gotten that rating later at night. Thanksgiving night. Just at third game historically does not draw as much but still The earlier game with Houston and Detroit. True 23 3 or something, so you would have gotten somewhere in between there. So today's game will you kick this thing off a 3 40 eastern time? 11 40 are 12 40 our time? So you're losing the entire western part of the country and you're not going to get much for the first half. NBC. They're not idiots here. There's like we did not buy this game to have this game be played on a Wednesday afternoon. We bought this game to play this game on Thanksgiving night. There's a slight difference there on amount of eyeballs that are available to watch this game. So somebody's paying us back here. You gotta make good so the league is gonna lose money. In some way, shape or form. Maybe it's on the next negotiation. I don't know, but some way somehow the Peacock network is going to be repaid for moving this game from Thanksgiving night, too. Afternoon game on a Wednesday, So it is about finances, But not always. They just want to get these games in. So really, what the prizes is January football, No doubt about it. And you know, the thing is to I look, I'm not a TV executive. I would have moved the tree lighting to today and have the game tonight. I don't think that was an option. I don't think so. Let's Rockefeller's play. That's it. I mean, it's awesome, but I'm just saying from the day I don't think they had that option. I don't believe they had that. I'm sure that was that was discussed, and it was not an option doing when we do it. You have the key, So I watch it, you know, but I like it. It's not the point, John. A lot of people do and in New York at Rockefeller Plaza Rockefeller Center with the ice rink there, it's beautiful. They you bought the rights to televise this event. We're not changing the event because of some guy in a weight room in Baltimore, Maryland. Sorry we're going on with the event. If you want to tape delay the event or something. It doesn't quite work that way. So I'm sure that was discussed and they're not the one making the call on that. Yeah. All right. Connor Letourneau is going to join us coming up next. A lot of words news, not only the schedule which you told which we told you about. But Steve Kerr drop some hints yesterday on starters, rotations all those things. Plus, they've already got a couple of positive covert tests. So we gotta ask Connor all about that. Do you remember NPR's holiday getaway? Give away its Grand CR resort and Spa is here.

"A much bigger win than that. So Uh, I just You know, your top four teams Your top four teams you you could've guessed to the top four would have been three years ago. Probably right. I mean, every year in college football, the same 5 to 8 teams are are getting it done. It's Oklahoma. It's Clemson and Alabama Z Notre Dame. It's Oklahoma State. You could name the top 25 before college football starts every year, just awful, like which Ohio State just name your your Big tens and your SCC's and your Big twelve's and you'll end up with your top 25. Bottom line is they put out their top four yesterday and a lot got shuffled in. This happens every year, but maybe this year even more influx that we've had in past years. I see a lot of people checking in on the cast quick text line.

Kent Baseboards were telling to the Warriors and really how big of a deal this is for Steph Curry, and I think that I think one thing is certain. When you have stuff on the floor, it's more fun to watch basketball when Steph has a supporting cast It's a really fun brand to watch. And even without Clay Thompson, I think that fun brand of basketball is gonna be back. The Kent pays more anything member that, like swinging your arm around as a three pointer and leaning forward. We need to get back into doing like the bays morning in the Tebowing and that the capper nicking that was a fun phase of the 20 tents.

Let's do it all right. Well, like I said, a sad as it is, We do have to roll up our Sleeves and get into the clay Thompson story and, of course, the The flip side, James Wiseman in two second rounders to arriving to the Golden State Warriors building in a very interesting time in warriors history. Connor Letourneau, the man on the scene, covering it for the San Francisco Chronicle, sporting green, so Connor. We appreciate you making some time for the murder from actual on Camby are in the Yuma Guest line. How you doing this morning, Connor. Anybody little tired? Be honest was up pretty late, You know, free agency also search tomorrow, So I had to get that preview together after the draft, but You know, there's a lot to cover who happen to have into for sure, That's great. Dan Jenkins wrote in his novel. You gotta play Hurt. You gotta play hurt. This is your time right now. Well, this is true it and that's another thing we got to talk about, but I guess we start with the big one, obviously, and that's clay. And are we all in the situation? We're really everybody's just kind of up to speed right now that it's a heel injury, and we don't know the severity but People are whispering. That it could be bad. Yeah, Basically that that's the deal. Not nothing saying since last night he has not had the Emory. We will get news later today. Um, it's looking like it's probably the Achilles The question is, the big question is, Is it a full terror that apartment terror? They're the team is basically bracing for him to miss a significant period time this season. But if it's a full on porn, accused, he would probably have to miss the entire season. Um, so that's that's where we are, Um, Steve courage going down l a this morning along with the training staff to be there with him in person when he gets the results. Kind of offer moral support and help him navigate his process. But I mean, just a total government. This is a guy who Had already missed the past 17 months, you know was on the verge of coming back. He was down in L. A You know, just getting in a pick up game trying to get in game shape for training camp here in the next couple weeks, and you know, he there's something like this. And this is a guy keep in mind. Who had Almost no injuries before his A C. L hear he had never missed more than a few games of the time during his entire NBA career used by the Warriors, most durable player and for him to suffer, too. Huge injuries like this, one of which in the Achilles would be absolutely catastrophic. If it is what we think it is. It's devastating. It's devastating in the sense to that, even if he does recover Is there a statistical history in anecdotal history that NBA players at age 30 who have this injury? I hate to even bring this up, but like, you know, don't come back as the same player. Yeah, The good thing that require a is that he's not a guy who has really relied on his leaping ability. On and and the the Feely's tends to affect. You know, your vertical jump from us and things like that, Um, I think the way clay plays like you would He'd have a good chance of returning toe at least close to the same player. Also, this is a guy who's in great shape for a 30 year old Andre, if you look at it historically attends the effect, Sigman Must, um, you know, there's a lot of good examples off of guards and wings. Uh, who come back? Quote at or close to 100% a song as they get enough time and you've got to think that, um, you gotta think of the Where is it going to be extremely cautious in his rehab? Given what happened with Kevin Durant? You know, I think they learned from that. Situation and they're gonna they're gonna wear for it. They're gonna be is conscious, humanly possible. And I think there might be a little bit of guilt right now, Within the words organization of and we've let clay You know? Believe play pick up games too soon, you know, did the process of the effect I mean, just looking at the time line. It's hard to believe that that it could've gone too fast. I mean, he had so much time since 17 months since he last played a game, so I don't think the world should be too hard on themselves. But Um, you know, it's so unfortunate that this would happen. You are listening to the can be our morning show on KNBR in can be or FM San Francisco, these sports leader. That's Connor Letourneau, The warrior beat writer for the Sam School, chronicle Sporting green and you know you said partial versus full Have you done? You know, given that you had to study this with Kevin Durant. I imagine you kind of have your notes. The ready. Um, is what is the quote unquote good news of a partial versus a full Well, it totally depends on the severity but a full you're looking at at least 9 to 12. Months of rehab. Um, so that was pretty much count. Play out for this coming to him, whereas partial You're looking at maybe closer to six months, maybe even less than that. It's really minor. I think you could be getting down his lowest four months. Um So clay is going to miss a good chunk of this season. Probably now who knows? Maybe the M R. I will. Look, Doc us all and he doesn't have an Achilles at all. It's something else but Based off his reaction yesterday. From what I heard he probably he believes that it's something related to the Achilles on bond layers tend to know their own bodies pretty darn well. Um so It'll be interesting if you only have to miss part of the season, because if you only have to miss partisans, and I do think the Warriors have enough talent on the roster with a healthy Have to Cobble it together and least You know, put themselves in playoff contention. By the time of the time step for by the time clay could potentially come back, and then you know, maybe one Clay comes back. You can really make a serious title. Course. Um, but, yeah, I mean, that that would make from what I'm hearing right now. That would probably be best case scenario right now, So I just want our listeners out there. Have realistic expectations as we get ready for this morass, man. Oh, man. Well, after all, that we're just like its anti climactic to even ask about. James Wiseman and Free agency And in fact, before even get two teams Wiseman, I'll jump to free agency because if you're going to replace clay, or at least get a body in for clay is probably going to come through free agency so Connor, can you give us the best road map as to what's out there and what the Warriors can get financially..

"Men face devoutly Christian Who Take a lot of pride and being husbands and fathers and so. I think that staff in his own way could see a bit of himself in Kenny and stuff obviously came up during the Social Media. A He's a global icon and he you know it makes millions and millions of dollars a year and lived a very different life than Kenny but I think he can Respect and relate to Kenny on a fair level and I also think that In you've talked about this before about how steph being in the limelight to the degree that he is he enjoys it. But it's not something that he strives for all the time and sailor certainly didn't want it at all ditty. Yeah No sailors purposely. Went off the grid And really valued privacy just kind of focusing on his family and stuff never been a guy that Saw attention or wanted to be famous. You know. Obviously he's so special basketball. That was going to happen but again. He's a guy who seems to be incredibly grounded for as famous as he's become. You know you really haven't forgotten who he is and I think anyone who spent time around stuff in your story. You had a great quote from sailors. You said I'm not popular. He said that he said that. Jump shots popular and you think about that for just a second and you kind of smile about it. That's a dichotomy. Is it not? Yeah for sure for sure and you know that kind of the thing that makes documentary. Even more special I think is that it was the last on screen appearance by sailors. He passed away a couple of years ago. Agent Ninety five so Do this is his last time talking on screen. So kinda Kinda adds to the the Laura a little bit. We only have a minute before we have to break. But what do you think people will take away from this documentary? I think that they'll The learn about an important part of basketball history that they probably weren't familiar with. I mean it's one of those things when I first read about it. I was like how did I not know this guy's name and I think the best back and ask yourself. How did I not know about this already? Because they're so it's important special things in history that for whatever reason maybe Wait under the radar nationally. And I think that that's the biggest thing that I'm going to take away now. I know something important about the sport I cover. That didn't otherwise now. You know when you think about this in about twenty seconds. I I think it's GonNa be something that's going to leave people with a definite impression. Would you agree with me over here for sure? And you know it's been winning awards it's been at major film festivals and that's all because it's it's it's really well done and it's not just the story but I give credit to the director and everyone who worked on this insteps media company for for really For bringing it for really bringing it to life. Connor Letourneau I really respect his work. He is the beat writer for the San Francisco. Chronicle we continue across the country and around the world. It's good to have you with us here.

"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.
