"Yeah, I mean, he deserves mentioned Quin Snyder was coach of the Western Conference. Coach of the months. Which sister? Yeah. Doc Rivers was Eastern Conference coach of the months and then saying month and includes December and January, right which I don't get that. Why did whatever I guess to symbol is a little um, so I'm thinking rolls, right? And then do that do that every year to There's always the October November, right? And then the other guy who I think absolutely deserves mentioned in that group is as J. B. Bickerstaff when you look at how competitive the Cavaliers have been, Um, you know when hey took over a team that was in complete disarray they were competitive than last season. They were 30th in defense the last two years and I don't know where they are at this moment, but the start of the week. I think they were eight or nine years up their seventh right now, and you're seeing development in some of the young players there without Kevin Love there. No still write. That probably helps her okay. But still they're 10 and 11 without the guy who makes the most money on the team. That's just my my short list of guys I think are deserving Coach their candidates. Victor, you know, he And I like that, Dr. Nothing bad to say about him. But, you know, he's saying all the teams all the teams quit on me. You know, he's kind of, you know. Yeah, they Indiana thing wasn't you know whatever. Like it was. Very, very strange situation that the thunder treatment for Paul George, I don't think that's an insult. Yeah, you know, so the magic traded in for surgery, Baka because they don't wanna Pam and I wasn't that that's a fair point. You could say they it was a disaster was a disaster trade all around for Orlando, and they traded surged within a year up to Toronto for Terrence Ross. And I think the first round pick so, um That's a fair point. But Bon temps do you think Houston can maintain this? And, you know, do you think that they hold on to these guys now that they were thinking about trading because they might have something I would assume McMahon would probably have a better sense of this and me, But I would assume it wouldn't change their thinking between now and the deadline. I think they were probably gonna wait anyway to do something, but I suspect if they could get a good deal for Victor of the Depot, or P. J. Tucker or any of these other guys, I think they would still Do something by the deadline, But, yeah, look, I mean, if they don't treat those guys, I mean, they have a decent team like you're going to go through the roster like John Wall when you know health is an issue When John Wells healthy, he's a solid point guard Victor Oladipo's it Good to guard Christian would have been a good center Peter Tucker is solid, right, Dana houses a solid defensive wing Christian would has been damn good, You know, he he's He's been really good like they have they have. They have a decent amount of talent and like They had to have depth of heaven as sterling brown the water off the bench, both those guys I played well, you know, they 10. They've got 10 guys in the rotation that can play, which in a few cases the past No question. And if you look at the West, right, I would say there's you know. Five teams you look at that are definite playoff teams barring catastrophic injury and Utah, the Clippers, the Lakers, the Nuggets and the sons and then after that you've got Portland, Houston, Dallas Golden State. San Antonio, New Orleans, like Is no reason that Houston can't be in the mix of those teams. And that's like 6 to 12 in the West, especially especially when you're talking about right 10 teams. Here's what I would say about the Rockets in terms of the trade market. I still anticipate that P. J. Tucker gets moved. And that's simply because they Yes, this is fun for rockets. Yes, this is There's a refreshed vibe in the organization, and they're really enjoying being competitive and then proving people wrong right now, But it's not about this season for the Rockets is about laying a cultural foundation. But obviously when you make the moves they've made and gotten all the pics..
J.B. Bickerstaff on the NBA Strike and Racial Justice
"Us today is the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Also, the greatest interim head coach and the history of basketball. He is now three for three. With the Houston Rockets, the Memphis Grizzlies at now the Cleveland Cavaliers interim turned head coach J., B. Bickerstaff. Thanks for coming on with us. Man I appreciate it I guess that's an honor to say. Then the greatest coach of all time but I appreciate you having me man. Looking forward to the conversation so. What were you thinking last night as the Milwaukee, bucks don't take the floor and it becomes a reality that. There's not going to be a playoff game and then we see the way it plays out through the evening. We saw your tweets couple of them went viral by the way Jay bickerstaff on twitter. Now love that but you really some poignant words to say and so I just take me through your day and experiencing that somebody in the NBA. You know they did a good job of keeping their thoughts to themselves and it was really a surprise. You know normally something like that is GonNa get out you know but they did a great job of keeping it to themselves organizing it in making it a powerful statement You know I can't speak enough about the power of their voices and what it means to communities and people all over the world and all of our country for sure So you know it's a powerful statement and that's what people don't what some people don't want to give credit where credit is due Did, not know the outcome of what was going to happen. You. Know they didn't know what their sacrifice could possibly lead to as far as repercussions from the League or from TV ESPN fans whatever it may been, but they still had the courage to do it. And that says a lot. It says how important it is to and how important it should be to all of us. What do you think? How do you think you would have handled it because to hear it coaches were still getting ready for that game players really kind of did this on their own in the locker room and it's within an hour of game. and. So I'm sure you can attempt to relate to the coaches and kind of what was going on. If you put yourself in that position, how do you think would have played out because I can only match the stress of Getting Ready for a playoff game is is something already and then you walk in and your player said, we're not playing tonight. And I think the first thing is you show support this isn't something has popped out of the Blue I'm sure that there have been a ton of conversations with bud in his guys about the circumstances he's got some very powerful guys and you saw what George Hill Janas. Had to say how it's impacted them. In, affected down extremely difficult way. So I'm sure they've had some conversations. But in that moment you show support you know you ask questions. You help guide or whatever the plan may be but you're there as a resource, a tool because again, you're not getting in the way of. Two, powerful a moment. It means too much a this time in our society what's going on? So you're there as a resource a shoulder to lean on if they need it. It seems to me that minor standing from talking to players and coaches and exects. Slow last day is that it is clear that the bubbles as a success in terms of quality of play in terms of health and safety. But a lot of people fail that it's been a failure on the league's part in terms of capitalizing the fact that everybody's there twenty two teams started there now thirteen remaining and it's been a failure to creatively find ways to take advantage of this platform. I mean. To me yesterday that Jaylen Brown tweets out that he wants to leave to go protests and the feeling is that he should be able to make more of an impact being from the bubble and utilizing that platform and player seemed to be a frustrated with the fact that they can't creatively use that platform right now and it seems to me like everything that happened yesterday is just the players taking that into their own hands to accelerate this. And I think that's what the players do. Right I think when all these things happen and you know the players lead nothing best. What's the most fantastic part of this is you know we are looking for voices in our society to push us over No human being has more influence or larger platforms than are NBA players. So we expect them and we're depending on them to lead us. They're leading US where our so called leaders have failed us. They're trying to pull us all together and it's for the right reasons. You know what? I mean this isn't a selfish caused. This isn't a divisive 'cause of this is a cause for equality and humanity of everybody should be able to get on board with and we need their voices in their platform. And we'll follow suit.

"We would ballboy we would do all those things with them. And we would see the day to day preparation that he had to put into coaching. You know, as we grew up. He was gone a lot because of his job. And so my mom was there, and my mom was a schoolteacher. So you know that teaching instinct at similar coaching was there too. And you know, she knew the game of basketball because of her experience with my dad, obviously. And she would talk to us, you know, she would coach us, you know, game to gain she'd be at the game. And we'd be embarrassed. Because she'd be in the crowd hollering at us telling us what to do. So but the combination of the two of them is. That's what I thought was teaching coaching. That's why went hand in hand for me. You know, when Golden State was going through the stuff with K D And dream on and stuff that goes on every day all over the league. I know one feeling Golden State, and what they always kinda give them confidence was, you know, with Steph curry and Klay Thompson that those two like what they care about is winning like whatever else is going on. They can be oblivious to it. But when something is going to get in the way of winning. That's when they step in. And that they kinda thought and goals say part of that is because they grew up in the league they've seen stuff happen. They saw is kids. They heard their dad's talk about it. Or they bend around it. And they're a little more desensitized to it. And it sort of a lousy them to not get too caught up in the other stuff and stay focus on what's important in the job. And does that make sense to you as somebody who grew up in pro basketball, probably saw lots of crazy stuff in the locker room as a kid or your dad, come home and talk about it happened on a road trip where you're just okay? Like, you don't lose too much. Time with that. You just know that's the NBA, and it may not be what's the most important thing for me to deal with today. Also think that the type of people that their parents were in the NBA has a huge impact. Like, you know, Michael another university of Minnesota was, you know, a solid person in the NBA, you know, he was part of winning Dell. Curry obviously, you know, solid human being, you know, understands what's important. And I think those guys they saw that. And you know, give their parents credit for instilling that in them. But you also think about and I think about this too is like, You you know, know. you don't play the game with a sense of desperation where you'll do whatever it takes to compromise. Your beliefs just to hang around or be a part of it. And what I see in them and most people who win at a high level is you know, they stand by what they believe helps win. And it was interesting to just listen to their comments. When people were saying, oh, this is going to be the reason why. And both of those guys said that's not going to be the reason why and it wasn't..

"You know, when you talk about being able at the college level to make an impact on a young person. I've kind of always felt like the place that you really can do that is at high school. And I think most people feel their high school coaches, it's more of a developmental age. It's a different dynamic between the player and coach then maybe a college where the coach is really indebted to the player for coming. Sometimes it's hard to discipline. The guy in college. How long's he staying for? Do you really think it's still you can really make an impact on a guy's life at that level is harder. Now, you think to do? I mean, I think, you know, having kids and seeing kids I think they're way more advanced than we were those same stages in our lives because they're exposed to so much more. But I do think, you know, between the ages of seventeen and twenty one whether it ends up being a guy who makes it to the NBA or not, you know, you can have an impact on someone to help them. Become a better man to help them become an adult. And I think those, you know, the way I look back on my college coaches guy who spent five years in college, and I look back on them, and they had a huge impact on my life. Whether they knew at the time or not when I look back on it. You know, they were important in my development. So you know, again, it wasn't about just two guys. Who went pro, you know, it was about the whole group of guys, and we all talked to this day, and we still talk, and he's still tell the same stories about, you know, the things that are coaches said to us and how they helped us when you looked at it and examined it was the recruiting part of it. What gave you the most pause? You like I haven't been in it. I don't have the relationships I could hire systems, and I can put try to put a great staff together. But as a college coach, you're still at the mercy of what your marketplaces for players, right? Yeah. You know, I'm fortunate that I still have some friends who are, you know, in the college game like guys who I can truly consider friends that have been assistance as some pretty top level programs. So. Trust in those relationships. I thought could have been helpful. You know, you just hear the horror stories of recruiting and how bad it can be. But, you know, the overall thought, and the reason that I was, you know, thinking about it was, you know, it was passed that again, it was more of a service to the game basketball, which I think basketball is giving me so much. And again, I've had some really really good coaches going all the way back to grade school. You know, my best friend's dad Gil, Chapman coaches, and hey, you starting in the seventh grade, and like, you know, he impacted the way I played, and I watched him, you know, we played with guys who, you know, their parents couldn't always get them to the gym. But we never practiced on whenever started practice on time because he had to go pick everybody up and then bring them to the gym. And it was like that influence on me was how impactful coach can be you know, I still have my high school coach Rudi Kerry still sends me text message now and watches are games and talks about our team. So. To me just being a basketball coach more than you know, having the title a basketball coach coaches at teacher, a coach should be a mentor and someone that can help people develop even at the NBA level. Where guys are, you know, thirty five years old, and you have a responsibility to them. How do you help them and help them become you know, better what it is that they're trying to do like, that's the important piece of coaching to me is that a bigger challenge to figure out how you can impact that at the level.

"I mean, we're not playing exactly the same. You know from a defensive standpoint we hope to get after you offensively. We are shooting more threes shooting a higher percentage from three that type of thing to kind of keep up with where the league is going. But we've got a mindset of you know, we're going to get after you defensively we're going to try to play harder than you every single night. We're going to try to be unselfish to me. That's the city of Memphis at I've seen, you know, in the short time that I've been there like you couldn't coach the Lakers play this way. Right. Right. Yeah. It's identity the market. And I just think Memphis the fans they're like this is synonymous to them with success in winning. And like you said people underestimate what a great basketball town. Memphis, what Memphis state, and then, of course, university of Memphis and all the players who've come from there while it still a relatively newer NBA market. It's a pretty sophisticated basketball market. They appreciate how you play in the way do it. And it's a high Q basketball town to which I think is, you know, it's a unique situation where you know, they see what's going on. They recognize it. And they understand it. They come to our games. They watch what our guys are doing. They watched a style that they play they watch and recognize the extra pass they watch and recognize the extra rotation. You know, you go out in about town. And you know, you can have games where you one and people are saying things to you like, hey, will, you know? What we're going to do about that defense, the slippage that you'll usually maybe only seen the film room. Right. Exactly. And it's it's it's fun. You know, what I mean to have you know, open and have educated conversations with basketball fans..

"He's playing matter. Like you're trying to win. You're not just it's not just playing empty minutes to play the lottery pick and to me that so much more valuable for the development of a young guy, then the normal lottery high lottery, too, it's different. It's unique. Because every mistake that rookies gonna make matters that much more in what we're trying to accomplish. Normally when you are drafted in the top five, you know, like you said with the exception of Boston past couple years. It's you know, we're just playing and there's a strong possibility that we're going to be in the lottery next year, and you get to learn through making those mistakes, and hopefully there's growth for you. But it's magnified when you're on a team with you know, hall of fame caliber players with the objective of not only just making the. Playoffs but making a run in the playoffs and every game. You know, we always look back in April. And there's a game in December. Where we're like, you know, that game matter, you know, that you wish you could head back. So it's important, and he's gotta learn and learn quickly the thing that's amazing about Jaren is for kid who just turned nineteen he so mature, and he has a professional approach to what we're doing. There's never been a situation where I've seen them out of sorts or things were just too big former moving too fast the way he approaches his life and basketball, it's under control. And I think that's been helpful for JV. We talk this summer, and you just been named head coach, and you really from the very beginning. It was I think you really wanted to Rian brace what had been the identity of this organization, grit and grind. And the league is changed all around the grizzlies from the beginning of this era. And I think there was the sense of well, you're just going to have to become like everybody else, and you're going to have to. Scrap it that's not today's NBA. And a lot of ways you guys have doubled down on it. He said, listen, like Marcus, part of our present our future, Marcus all and Mike's back and like we're doubling down on that. And I guess it's an organizational decision right to say. We don't have to abandon this. In fact, we're going to do just the opposite. Well, the thing about it what we were thinking about as we decided to go in this direction to me. It was more about history and the city in the fan base of degrees. Lease. That group minal Holland's as a coach, Mike, Mark Zibo. Tony allen. You know, they created something that was bigger than the team. If you go to Memphis, you see the fans the people come out. And they bought in. It's one of those things I think about like the Pittsburgh Steelers in those towels the Green Bay Packers and the cheese heads. It's something that was bigger than just a team that may last couple years or whatever it may be like, grit and grind is something that we should embrace because it is Memphis, if it's it fits the city, and when you have an opportunity to do something like that, it's a special unique situation. And I wanted to make sure that this was something that you know, we bought into the game isn't the same..

"Throw us in that group and most people's is in that group, given people notice that you know, we're pretty good teams J B how differently if it all when you're an interim coach versus once you been named the head coach or under contract. You don't have that tag. I should say is the approach any different data day. Do you have to approach it differently as an interim when you're competing to get the job you went through it before in Houston where you'd weren't kept on as the head coach did that influence at all how you handled it last season. You know, honestly, when you take over in that position, and you have this position as a whole your responsibilities to the organization, and that's the way I tried to approach it. You can't have selfish motives in a position of leadership. I don't think that's the right way to go about it. So you know, a sat down with the front office. You know, got information of the direction we were heading in the things that we were trying to do in both places, and you know, the results were different. But it's only thing that matters is what's right for the organization, and then whatever happens to you you kind of figure it out on back in lucky enough to be able to get this job. If I didn't get this job because of the situation and circumstances who knows the next I would've had to get a job. So I'm thankful for that. And appreciative from this organization. But it it's tough because you know, as an interim there is no long term plan. You know, it's day to day. It's game to game. It's figure out whatever we're trying to do right now as an head coach. You know, you've got some years on your contract you've had conversation with ownership front office. And you can put a. Plan in place, and it's not a you know a week plan. You know, what I mean, it's a three year plan. Hopefully, I mean, this is how it's supposed to work teams in the playoffs for a significant stretch years. They get riddled with injuries. They bottom out. They end up in the lottery, they get the number four pick. They get a player in. Jaren Jackson who not only is a cornerstone for the future. All of a sudden, he's really good right away. You plug him into your group and you try to head right back to the playoffs. That's what it's supposed to be now teams linger for years in the lottery. But I think what happened with Memphis is. That's how you hope it works out. Right. Well, we're fortunate. You know what? I mean, we're we're fortunate and we were different than all the other teams that were in the lottery this year from that standpoint. You know, we still have, you know, Markelle Saul who is an all-star we have Mike Conley. Who at this point has should have been in all star with his ability to play lead and things that he's done for the city of Memphis in the organization. We just dealt with guys being out. And so when we were able to get into the lottery, and then draft a guy like Jaren who, you know, we believe is going to be a stud, you know, when he's already really really good. I think he's got the potential to be one of the top two way players in our league for a long time. Now, you throw him in with veterans like Mike and Mark and then give credit to ownership in for an office. You add guys like shelve imag geared temple Jamaica, green comes back. You know, what I mean like we're a competitive basketball team with an identity, which I think the hard part about being in the lottery year in and year out is you lose an identity. You don't know exactly who you're trying to be. That's really interesting. I think especially for a player like Jaren. It is most players who are in the lottery or who are drafted up that high with the exception of one team on somebody else's pick. If Boston has they always have somebody's pick. Right. And they they cooperate them in. But Jaren comes into a situation where. He's got real mature hall of fame level veteran leadership to work his way in and figure it out in. That's not the case with a lot of young players. And he's trying and the games..

"Harry one welcome in to another addition of the wochit, pod Herron Manhattan with Memphis grizzlies, coach JV, Bickerstaff GB. How are you? I'm doing good long-term. Ben traffic was crazy. Oh, yeah. You what what was longer traffic from the airport to lower Manhattan or the flight from Memphis to New York? It had to be the it's always it's always like that. When I have to go from jersey to Brooklyn some nights. I'm like I could fly to Atlanta faster, then go twenty eight miles right in the car to go over to bridges. This point in the season. You guys have gotten off to a terrific start. Who are the teams either you played or new prepared for or you're watching and you're going while because I think some people look at Memphis and say, hey, I'm some are surprised I think others aren't they just see that you're healthy? But who've you played this year or who have you watched. And you said hey that team. I like what that team's doing that team surprise me or I that seems maximizing what they have right? I think the Tina stands out. Most of my mind is the clippers the job that doc has done the the group of guys that they've assembled and the way that they're playing, you know, everybody says they don't have a star. But they have a bunch of really really good basketball players. They got guys. They're back court may be one of the best defensive bag courts. You know, the young kid is really really good defensively. Avery Bradley is really good Patrick Beverley is really good defensively. And then obviously they got guys like to buy his hairs gala Nari, Lou Williams who. Can score the ball. And then you know, give mantras at ton of credit. You know, he's come up huge form you had him in Houston. Yeah. Exactly. And it was he was one of those guys that it was like if he got minutes. Good things we're going to happen because he just plays so hard. And I think he's gotten better. He's learned how to use the length of his arms to help him finish around the pain early in summer league when he played force. He would get his shot blocked a lot when his rookie year. But he's figured that out. Now, he knows how to move the ball around. He knows how to use his body to create those opportunities for himself. So give them a ton of credit for giving better. I think this year has been an example, clippers are great example of this. But this year has been an example of we all make lots of sumptious come into a season, and what it's going to be. And it's like, oh, it's just gonna be Golden State Boston. They both got clear lanes to the finals and maybe for Golden State. That's still very much. The case wants healthy Boston has struggled more and they're figuring things out. But when you look at the standings twenty games in which usually appoint. Organizations are saying they're starting to decide are we buyers are we sellers who are we where do we fit in the league? I think there's more confusion among teams of who they are even an who others are than we've seen other years despite into the into the season. Yeah. I would agree. I mean, you know, there's you know, you look at the standings you watch games. And there is some some guys that we thought our teams that we thought would be shoe ins to be in whatever position whether in the playoffs out of the playoffs. And you know, there's not that clear. Cut separation between teams. So it's fun. You know to be a part of it because every single night, you know, even this early in the season, you're still jockeying and you're hoping to give yourself and opportunity in April. But you know, the Portland's of the world the clippers of the world we talk about like, they're people who have been, you know, surprising. So to speak..

"bickerstaff" Discussed on Open Floor
"They have lots of priorities trying, you're trying to get through this time period. You're trying to grow your your new rookie Jaren, Jackson, junior, potentially, trying to get some of these guys in position where you can trade them if things don't go. Well, you have a lot of organizational priorities and just saying like, hey, man, I know the next three months are going to suck, but don't worry. There's like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. That's not how good businesses done. Yeah, and I'm not advocating or door seeing that approach. That's the only plausible explanation I have for why they committed to j. b. Bickerstaff going forward because he and it's not really. I guess it is a shot at him. He's just never been that impressive of. And I, I would have wanted to take things in a different direction if I were them. But yeah, among that group, we can safely say. Say that none of those guys were getting fired in the next year? Correct. I would think so. But that's always one of my favorite situations where someone just gets fired in their first year out of nowhere because clearly they just made like the wrong higher completely. And there's so many bad teams on this list where I would assume that that's not going to happen, especially guys recently just got higher, like coach, bud or Wade case. I mean, you know, phys Dale in New York. I think those guys are basically untouchable in year one, but it will be funny if someone pops out of the blue and just gets knocked off. I mean, I'm thinking about like the Mike Dunlap era in Charlotte, you know, like, oh yeah, he's a new coach. He's completely fine. Like wait a minute, like no one has any idea who he is what he's doing. It's a complete mess. And he's just gone real quick. So I would just caution. Don't assume one hundred percent retention from this group. That's all I'm going to say. Yes. And that's part of what makes fun is they're definitely going to be a couple curve balls all over this list, but moving. Onto the next category I had, which is not untouchable, but the seat is not hot. So I have five names Kenny Atkinson in Brooklyn. Tie Lou in Cleveland, Dave Yeager Nate McMillan. And Mike dantonio and did Tony. You could argue that he should be untouchable at this point. But there are various scenarios where I could see him getting fired at the end of the season of and same with MacMillan mcmillen was great last year. But like if the Pacers missed the playoffs entirely, you know they're couple like dork timelines where things were like a change could be necessary. But those those guys I think are probably safe regardless. I think they're both safe regardless. I would actually move them out of this category. I think with Dan toady he's really lucky that the rockets didn't trade for Carmelo on his big salary number. Instead got him on the minimum. Like I think that's the kind of thing where like it saves him from a leverage damn point because if they get into a fight or I guess I should say when they get into a fight over Mello's role or lack of defense or not playing him in the fourth quarter or whatever else, dantonio gonna win that fight this year. So I see him, you know, in place, I think they've got a really stable organization. They're all things considered. They like with our ad. He's got the backing of management and the new ownership group. I think he's okay as far as mill and I mean him in Kevin, Pritchard are fast friends, best buddies they go back aways. I think it would take something like older depot just deciding he hates McMillan's guts, which is very hard to foresee for there to be a change. I think they're playing with so much house money after last year that he would still be able to survive a disappointing year. This time around I give it another shot. I agree with you on both counts and then Keniakin sin and. Dave Yeager the expectations are so low that it's hard to imagine like the nets are the kings getting really intense at the end of the year and saying we need better. Can I draw distinction there? Because I actually think Atkinson. I mean, nobody cares like the nets are technically in the NBA, but not really in terms of the kings, though they think they're going to be a lot better than they are every season, right?.

"Is the grizzlies marcus all goes for twenty eight points in twenty three minutes last friday and his benched in the fourth quarter for reasons that they cannot even numerate after the game jc bickerstaff when he's asked about it just keeps saying we gave our young young guys an opportunity to play rick i submit that that is far worse far more corrosive than anything the sixers were doing because the sixers were at least trying to win they just didn't have the talent out there and granted that was by design but you're talking about the the the grizzlies benching their best player who's on a tear for three quarters so that they can put themselves in a position to lose a few weeks ago we had the hawks resting kent bays more healthy by any stretch that we know of no reason to tied to rest can't bays more for what and then they benched dennis schroder in the fourth quarter that same game against the phoenix suns whom they are competing against to be one of the worst teams in the nba and for lottery balls now they they ended up accidentally losing anyway the hawks but these things to me rick speak to a bigger issue and what the sons did a year ago in shutting down healthy eric bledsoe and healthy tyson chandler at the time like that stuff i don't think league has any handle on whatsoever and changing the lottery odds whether it works or not next year or maybe lessens the incentive this stuff is still going on and you sit for having sam hanky get forced out at philly when all the shaming of the sixers has not helped a bit with all of these other teams that are doing that are like i say this is the worst one when you're actually in season and now trying to set up your rotation or bench guys in a way that's going to cause you to lose well so here's the thing five years ago when i first started covering the league the golden state warriors were angling to land their coveted big man that they've never had and they were actually looking to get shawn bradley not chris webber.
