The Stories of the Stars
"In greek mythology. Stars are more than joust stars. A group of stars were constellation is sometimes arranged in a certain shape that makes it look like an image of something kind of like a big connect the dots puzzle the greeks used to believe these shapes represented heroes and warriors that deserve a spot in the sky to be remembered and revered for all eternity. It is a true honor to be placed among the stars but of course stars are only large incandescent celestial bodies that are so far away. They look like tiny points of light. They are not the outlines of long ago. Heroes you gotta make everything less cool. I make everything way more cool with science. scientists use. Exploding stars called super nova's to try to communicate with aliens since super nova's are the brightest things in the sky. They send messages in the opposite direction. Hoping aliens are looking our way okay. That is cool. I admit okay now. We've already mentioned a few of the heroes placed in the sky. Hercules for example era please erica's right heracles. Exactly and today we're going to discuss. Two more characters earned their rightful place in the night sky. Orion and callisto ryan and callisto are rarely talked about together. I do not know if they have ever interacted. That's true. We're not sure if the two ever met each other. But they both were honored by the gods after their deaths and they both share a very important friend in common artists. Artists is the greek goddess of the hunt and wild animals. She is also the goddess of the moon and protector of young girls and women who are not mother's responsibility.

The NBA Play-in and Most Enticing Playoff Matchups
"Kevin arnovitz how you doing man. I'm well how are you. i'm good. I'm kind of preemptively overwhelmed. Kevin because i'm looking at the schedule for the nba playoffs four games. Saturday four game sunday and then it sort of continues on forever as this thing tends to go. Are you already overwhelmed or you cited. Where are you emotionally. I'm well-named excited. I neither some great first round match up. So i. I think it's kind of a more interesting season. I think kevin arnovitz has covered the nba for espn. Since two thousand and eight and he has a steel trap of a basketball memory. So i wanna start with game. That is still stuck in my brain. Kevin and we had this moment where the nba even as it is variously. Well-named was sort of all gathered around television watching the same exact thing. And i'm talking about the lakers. And the warriors and what. They did on wednesday night. Because lebron steph were certified filling every kind of dramatic potential that we hoped for them to meet. James drives onto scotto anderson tax at home curry reverse with the english class. Had lebron hitting an enormous absurd prayer of a thirty four. Footer puts up the three expires after which he admitted that he was seeing like three rims. Because he'd been poked in the eye by draymond he may have been plagiarising rocky four in the process but he wins the game that way. The whole thing was insane. And what i want to ask you about. Kevin is what you thought. The phoenix suns were thinking when they were watching that game unfold. I think phoenix is oddly. Confident like i. Obviously you run a great risk when you draw. Lebron james and anthony davis but i sort of liked the way. Phoenix is approached. This whole thing
LeBron James Makes Game-Winning Shot as Lakers Overcome Warriors to Reach Play-Offs

"warriors" Discussed on Warriors Off-Court
"Th man on a contending which if you had told me just five six months ago that i would i would have asked you like what happened in my brain and am i am. I mentally okayed. But that is where he's at he is every he does every little thing as a role player to help his team win games. He plays with unbelievable energy. He's crazy good passer. The mini draymond comparisons really are true in terms of how he sees the floor. How he finds open shooters. He understands the system in a way that a lot of guys with his experience level do not he plays off steph so well Defensively so versatile. I think one of the most important things is just how versatile player he is. He can play three through five with no problems. Even though he's six six he holds his own defensively against much. Bigger guys in the post and When you're when you're talking about a coach like steve who really likes to mix match and and and switched up things. It's so helpful to have a guy like that who you can just plug into so many different roles and trust that. He's going to be reliable in all those roles because they have guys who can play different positions but they're definitely better at some physicians than others. I'm not. I'm not really sure what wants best position because he's good at all the positions. He's play. He's a basketball blend. What am i gonna point guard at times for this team and You know you look at someone like eric. Paschal like all. He's proven he can do at this. Point is be a small ball for a and you know it's hard to imagine you having much of a future in this league. If you're like this niche six six small ball five and and you're not great defensively and e can really only score and iso situation and so Obviously someone like eric pass was on contract next season. I still expect even though damian. He's been injured. I think he showed up before we got injured to be around next season. But you raises questions about someone like uber and and You know like even guys like niko manion and Do they do. They belong to me. Someone like conveys more. You need to do everything. He can to resign him and bring him back. And then one one guy i wanted to ask you about. I'm personally on the fence about him. Still is michael moulder like do you think maga motor has shown enough to warrant a spot next season in the nba. I don't know what the warriors And it's hard to say that right now because he's part of that aid it's brought him on his six game winning streak and adamant to the the best possible play situation that they could be in And i'll see glimpses where he shocks me with his athleticism even does something defensively that suppresses me 'cause in my thoughts to be the year i thought this guy's shooter and that's what he does. He does some other things but they are few and far between and even in that group of canada the no name second team that plays out there he disappears for a long time so I don't know i'd be interested to see what the warriors themselves think about him. But if you're bringing all of those guys back been there isn't much room for anybody else. And so i kind of wonder if he's the he's the last guy out of that group You talk about one. He's definitely coming back. They want to do everything they can eat. Bring bays more back you bring him cool back So you're right there. You're already at your eight and i don't know where we're mulder fits into but And i haven't heard the warriors front office. Say one way or another really glowingly or or the other way of saying what they think about him but they just keep laying him and he keeps doing his job. So that's something he wasn't. He wasn't great yesterday but they didn't really need him too. Because you had you had jordan pool doing his thing and and You know so he. He was kind a non factor. But he's he's really come through in the clutch several times in recent weeks and He's had a guy a couple of those stretches were were the rare ones were steph. Curry can't make a shot in boulder is the one who starts making shots and So yeah like. I say he's had a couple of stretches like that. I don't know if it's been consistent enough to evaluate what he's going to be. I think bottom line if they can't bring back bays more whatever that they should try to bring him back but the thing to keep in mind there's there is talk about them wanting to bring just indian jessop in just to give him a look and i think just any jessop showed enough to season australia to at least give him a look next season and they are similar players just in the fact that they're catching shoe guys who are mainly florida. Dispaced floor Where but even though. I think molds probably more athletic jessop is much longer and more versatile defensively so you might want to lean that direction. But i agree with you. Motor has proven that he's an nba player and for a guy who averaged three point in college at kentucky barely play. It's pretty impressive In the the crazy thing is they're playing a guys are now in those guys average less than four points per game in college right anderson and michael motor. They might be the only. I gotta look this up. They might be the only player in the nba whoever's less voice for college And i think i can get a dole argument about how they underscore. How scouts aren't evaluating row players in the right way like they need to stop caring so much about points and under and understand that when it comes to a role player. It's about your feel for the game. it's about intangibles. It's about how you Mashed with other other guys in different styles and moulder and discount anderson especially are phenomenal examples. That it's all about phil for the game. It is all about basketball. Iq because they have that in spades specially to scotto anderson and that is why they will be in the league. I think for for years to come now. The warriors like we talked about got got the eight seed yesterday We're able to pull away in that second half against the grizzlies thank enlarge. Thanks in large part of this guy named steph curry continues to be unreal. Just locked up his second career scoring title finished yesterday with forty six points on sixteen. Thirty six shooting which is more impressive when you consider the fact that he started so slowly misses i think five shots of the game and it was a pretty quiet there in the in the first half and then just kind of once again turned it on what it mattered. Most so we know what we're going to give from staff at this point as long as he's healthy in that that tailbone doesn't continue to bother him wiggins continues to be reliable. You know both offensively and defensively. He was a very efficient twenty one points yesterday. Nine for sixteen shooting. Looney has been reliable among green has been reliable like we talked about discount. Anderson has been reliable in pool is starting to is starting to emerge as a dependable guy is rotation admit i it took me. I tweeted out yesterday. It's taken me a long time to come around to pool I've had my reservations about him. I still don't think he's a hundred percent like a a a building block of this franchise. i mean. i thought what steve said. The other day was pretty pretty high praise. He said that he sees him potentially sixth man next season and bureau tasting title. Do you feel comfortable jordan. Pool is your six man. I personally don't yet. Because he just hasn't shown the consistency. His overall efficiency on the season is not that great. But here's the thing about drum boy steps up in big moments he's got this wiggle to his game you know. He's got this factor about him. He's he's dynamic in a way that not a lot of guys are and it will..
Is Lebron's Ankle Injured Following the Lakers Win?
"We having a liberal a LeBron James update from Vogel in his postgame conference says of LeBron and his ankle. He's good to go. There are no issues with his right ankle Great. You go. That's so that that there you go, there's great news for the Lakers and LeBron just good to go. Like we said, you know there was that. I think it was one of those situations where for a moment, Braun went. Oh no, right. Right. You know, he probably used a four-letter word, right? Instead of saying, oh no, but he was probably a little bit worried for a split second and then he realized, okay, I'm good. You know, if you've turned your ankle before if you've been out there on the court and you've done that, you know, when you kind of do it a little bit and you're worried for a split second and then you realize. Okay, I'm actually I'm good. I think that's wrong with LeBron and Frank Vogel confirms. He's good to go. So that's great.

It caught my eye because number one. Cuban and number two. It's gigolo at number three. it's a white guy wearing a chicken. I don t shirt and it wasn't very different from any of the times that i saw ceva anywhere else but suddenly some white kid walking into a party wearing a t shirt had me feeling things that i had never felt before when it had seen shale at his image that grew up seeing china's image almost everywhere growing up in miami.

Curry's 30-Point Run Ends: 'It Was a Special Ride'
"A babe a streak. Bay Area. Pro sports teams have owned the sports headlines for the past week. Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry set the NBA record as the oldest player in league history to score at least 30 points in 11 consecutive games. The Oakland A's who lost their first six games of the baseball season, carried a 10 game win streak in last night's contest against Minnesota. One Street continued, but another came to an end Steph Curry, who had scored 96 combined points over his previous two games. And who would hit for 42 arm or in five of his last 10 games, finally went flat curry not spicy against the Wizards. He made only two of 14 shots from three point range scored. 18 points total first time in 12 games. Steph Curry did not reach 30 points. He was a great room, whose nose in a some point is a special ride for sure that this age was this very special. The Warriors lost to the Wizards won 18 1 14 Steph streak over at 11 games.
Curry's 30-point run ends
"Out there that says rules are made to be broken. Well, records are made to be broken as well. Streaks are made to be surpassed or made to come to an end, and it just so happened. That Steph Curry ran into a formidable defender in Russell Westbrook as the Warriors air wrapping up their road trip on Wednesday in Washington. Steph Curry has to take on for the most part. The battle of the hounding the aggressiveness. Russell Westbrook and you know Russ is tenacious. I mean, The man's relentless He likes to prove a point. He likes a personal challenge. This was a game in which the Warriors were up big early. And then we're up by 11 in the fourth quarter. What got sloppy. And then the shooting went cold in the fourth and so very quickly, the Wizards were able to narrow the gap. They were definitely missed opportunities for the Warriors. But the Wizards were able to take care of. There's real rocking the cradle back and forth. I'll cut stores, right head down right block to the basket Bank and score bacon score because he runs by Russell Westbrook. Hello five as it was to fly high 1 14 1 10 with 55 seconds left. Bradley. Beal had 29 points in this matchup against Curry. Top two scorers in the N B A to start tonight, Curry had just passed. Bradley Beal Washington rallies from 11 down in that final quarter. But even in that last minute after the lay up with Dave John that you hear with Dave Johnson on the Wizard's radio network, even after that, Warriors got a big feel and Andrew Wiggins blew a wide open layup that would have tied the game in the final. I think it was the final 10 seconds I was listening to the game on the war years radio network.

"warriors" Discussed on Warriors Off-Court
"And the you know a lot of times with it can be a double whammy because not only do you get injured. Your injury opens up an opportunity for for someone else and then that person ends up looking great. And then it's like where do you fit in this rotation When chris got injured eric paschal. Steve had no choice. But to move. Eric possible to the small ball five just yet no other options and paskal who sits six foot six has been a total revelation is small five as that has been amazing that position and a huge asset. And that's actually been his best position and so it's like you look at the rotation you look at the depth chart and it's like where are the minutes from archies when he comes back i don't know i mean he's best at the five but you don't wanna you don't wanna take five five minutes away from pasco he's been an asset in the second unit is a small five so it'll it'll be interesting. I feel for them. But i also think you gotta give him an incomplete because he's only played two games and you know honestly in those two games. You don't look very good. But i was just two games and no one to get in those two games. I was going to give him an a plus just because of what you just said that that his injury actually freed up. Eric pascoe at this mobile five. And i feel bad for him because he had completely revived his career and had really made made himself a player in the nba. It wasn't a question anymore if you belong to on a roster He was doing everything the warriors asked him to do So that part's too bad. But this is the way it works in the league. The fifty thousand seventeen dudes are really good also and when you go down somebody steps up. I'm not sure the warriors would have ever tried air. Pasco is the backup five if it wasn't for this and and it's been an absolute Even guarantee every game that he's going to be really good in that role So incomplete probably the right answer marquees because it worked out really well for the warriors i give him an a plus but i know that's not fair right. So the next one is Jordan pool we heard so much about jordan pool in the offseason. Vote like steve and all the coaches and everyone were going out of their way every opportunity to rave about his diligence. He was in the gym every single day. Working really hard really true. A true gym rat Which is great from a young guy. A speci- guy who hasn't really proven one hundred percent. He's an nba player yet And he So you're we're all kind of expecting a breakthrough just based off what everyone was saying. But i said at the time. I just don't see the minutes like where. Where are the minutes and for him to to have a meeting for one thing he had to do this. He had to beat michael motor. Who got the fifteenth and final roster spot. He hasn't been able to do that. michael motors actually been really helpful as a catch and shoot specialists up bench and pull hasn't been horrible but he just hasn't been able to knock down shots at a consistent enough rate so.

We have a lot of reservations about him. Were intrigued but we have reservations. We're not sure he's worth number two pick especially in the modern nba. Getting you know him personally to having dinner with him watching his workout They were blown away And that really solidify that. If they kept number two pick he'd be the guy and look. I think it's already fair to say. They made the right decision. There's no question and fair enough. I will back off. And i'll let you take the loss just trying to help you there buddy appreciate it. I'd also like to the narrative of me being used by the organization. So Uses the wrong if i was the warriors and i was worried about weisman going number one. I would tell anybody anybody who had a public platform. I wasn't interested in them. Because i want that person to report it in the hopes that minnesota and find out like maybe we shouldn't take him but i obviously trust your read of it and if that's not what happened. That's not what happened. I will push this in a different direction. And i'd like to give a heartfelt. Thanks to the minnesota timberwolves. I was thinking this warriors if we fast forward a year and what happens or what. We want to have happen happens. There's a chance that minnesota is going to be almost directly responsible for a huge majority of the warriors. Roster that will be competing for a title steph curry steph. Curry is on the warriors because minnesota past him. Not once but twice klay thompson. Klay thompson will be on the warriors because minnesota was openly unwilling to give can lead for him wiseman weisman's on the warriors because they passed on wiseman as well wiggins weakens on the warriors because the timber was given to us..

Doesn't you know whatever if uber is back on team we These guys need some sort of playoff experience right now so that they can carry that over to next year when when the warriors are like really in the mix for stuff. Yeah yeah and so. I feel like i actually think it's good that we took that health question expanded into death. Because they're they're interrelated racine. How precarious this whole situation is. I mean klay thompson. I think everyone knew before his injury before last season that he was incredibly important. Part of this team but if you had any doubts about how he was you should understand now as a guy who won injuries out for the season there ceiling what from apps maybe legitimately containing for title for sure to now i think.

"I'd preferred for them to go after. Maybe like a austin rivers type. I actually know rivers for me. I i take wanamaker. I mean we were more obviously. But it's kind of a weird cat. I i like that any close to family. But i i'm talking about backups. Guy really matters every everything. I've heard about wanamaker's really positive. He's genuine kambli guy. It bid there does pretty well as more is interesting You know he. He's a guy who is a much better player than he was last time years with the warriors last time years with the warriors need really just a defensive oriented guy she's wearing yeah yeah But arrived is shooting form Emerges a really really essential role guy for for some really good atlanta teams. A few years back Since then it's been a little up and down. He was not berg last season with portland but he was traded mid season to to the kings and extra super well for them so obviously the warriors are hoping to get the king's version of biz. Moore's oppose the portland version. But i think it will help him that he's playing alongside one of his closest friends in life absolutely at curry and already knows the words are about that goes along. Yeah i i thought that was. That was a heck of a move. I mean. He does a lot of. Thanks for coming off the bench He's the definition of that. Sort of guy. He's gonna play tough defense for insurance perks. He's gonna get a breakaway. Doc that's gonna excite everybody high-energy guy Scoring could be a little hit. Miss but i i think he just needs to bring its personality and its flair and his and his desire again. We talked about this. It's kind of a crucial all elements of rain in the mix. And and like you say most of all. He's he's really stuck to be here. Yeah yeah he saw stephan base timing after the news broke. And you know you know this is something. They've been hoping for for a long time because you've covered the nba long enough to understand that Nba friendship is different than normal. Like everyday friendship like it. The way i describe it to people is any co worker situation. You know you have your co workers in may you get along with them and you respect them and everything's cool but you're not like necessarily going out and grabbing a beer with them are are. Actually you know calling them christmas and that kind of thing whereas you do notice occasionally. Nba that there. Are those true friendships where it's not just like a coworker situation. But they're actually besties. And from what. I've heard In steph are that they're both carolina. They're both pretty religious family oriented guys. They both love golf. I mean it just makes sense. They have a lot to connect over. Yeah confidence is such a big thing in sports..

"They handled it just right. I mean they had to first rounders. They got rid of one. But you certainly can't get rid of both. That would be very dumb so they still have that one. It's probably going to be pretty good But you know what the bottom line is curry and draymond wooden here of backing up they. They've been waiting way too long to not go frigging nuts out. There really bad even. It's just personal. I mean they got to get back in the game. Curry's you're going to get back in among the superstar crowd is he's he's back man. Everybody look out. You know and dream onto. It wouldn't hear of it and that's going to be contagious ethics. So yeah i mean they got them. They made themselves exciting. They're spending a lot of money but the fans don't care about that they and as a really relevant right now mean last season they say open shea center to preposterous team. That was just full of guys never even heard of and then there's nobody there and then there's no season i mean he's going to open with no season that you know the fans are are gonna they. They need to get excited at the soonest. Possible opportunity next thing know kind of checked out of the nba for a while especially if the warriors are looking like they did. And i think you're you're you're treading trenches treacherous territory if you go that route right where wave the white flag again. And then you're risking ruining your the culture you've spent years building as you know the fact that the warriors didn't implode from a cultural perspective and a lack of perspective law enduring. What was an extremely tough league. Were season last. Season is a testament to what they built. But i don't even think the worst was standing other year that i don't think any team in professional sports and so just from a psychological perspective you lease to your fans and your players to to deport winning. I again this season. Even if you know that it's not probably gonna mean a title and look you know if if they can somehow still out of four seat in the west and get homecourt advantage in the playoffs with staff and draymond. It's not out of the question that they could make a run in the playoffs. And maybe the western conference finals make things interesting. And that's that's a huge psychological boost heading into what will be a critical twenty twenty one twenty two season. I think you know from the fans stamp where just getting into the playoffs would be a huge thing. Especially if there's fans in the stands with that many months from now it's like oh my god. Here's the opener of the you know the first round series at j. center wherever it may be you know that that's that's a heck of a thing that's that alone makes the season worthwhile to meet. I mean if you get swept in horrible fashion that diminishes pretty quickly but the bottom line is making the playoffs in the in this situation with this team these circumstances would be a great thing. And that's that's what they're going forward. I think they'll get there. I know we touched the bottom on first. Civic dots on brad wanamaker out of boston and as more from there with about makers if there's a race called the wanamaker mile at it was in the penn relays sir. But i. i watched a lot of the bubble.

"Because he's so beloved he's a public figure is a superstar I think the one thing that concerns me in terms of his rehab and you laid it out really well on that store the other day as just a lateral quickness on defense yeah. That's one of his. Real strict says midwestern. What makes him really sets apart from. So many others shooting guards are players in the league period It's hard for me. Imagine you'll still have that but You know if he comes back and give thirty in. I in ten minutes they know to do. I think they can hang with that. I'm glad that we're we started this conversation by talking about what it means. Claire because i do feel like that's getting lost a little in the discussion right now. Obviously just in the world we live in easy to look at. Okay now what are the warriors there which which is an important question. Obviously an impressing was the seasons right around the corner but there is a human being here there. There is a life here that's being affected And in terms of the warriors long-term hopes they need clay to be clear rolled if they have any chance of winning. I don't not this season but was ins after that And i don't think it can be understated. How important he is to this organization. I would make the argument that he's the second most important player on the team. Draymond behind staff He is The glue that really holds his organization together. it's not just the fact that he's arguably the second best shooter in nba history behind steph. He's all defensive caliber defender which became even more important when andrea it would also got traded. And then he perhaps most importantly is just the perfect temperament His even keeled demeanor. I think is a perfect fit alongside the joyful staff the fiery dream on and it's just like a perfect puzzle piece And they're replacing him now with kelly oubre. Who's actually very draymond ask He's very hirees gotten into his his sheriff's bats including the infamous one when he was with the wizards where he punched clay in the in the back of the head which he apologized for by the way during his orders yesterday so he was very remorseful his past antics but the warriors reacted pretty quickly with literally within twenty four. Hours of clay's injury. They go out and they get a guy like uber. Who's coming off. A career year with phoenix averaged over. Eighteen points per game He's one of the best tradition players in the nba. He's only twenty four years old turns twenty five next month. Whoa what were your initial me. Saw them go get lebron in. Did you feel like he was the best use of that. Teepee that that traded player exception as opposed to someone. Like maybe eric bledsoe or near gordon. Someone a little older. Yeah i look down that list of the available guys Obviously you know you see names like brandon. Ingram and anthony davis said they were not gonna be available. And we're not. In fact. I i wasn't..

"The trade for kelly. Bray to the signings of brad wanamaker in baseball through. Thank you so much for joining me on the podcast I haven't had you on the podcast and what feels like forever. Which is an oversight on my part. I know i know our readers our listeners. Love your insight. And i haven't even gotten a chance to talk to you in months. We were just catching up before we jump don here about our lives because given the state of things with cove in We don't really overlap anymore so it's nice. It's nice to see your face. I remember once you look like now. I'll take this over. personal interaction. grow grown up the beard a little bit. Since how's that work with the mask it pokes out quite a bit. You know you you make do for sure. It's things were really chill there for a while. So i'm not really complaining and things of heated up in the past week or so. Obviously some of the reasons for that are unfortunate As injury last week the torn achilles will be out for the season. There's a massive trickle down effect to that And you've seen bob myers after makes really quick decisions in the aftermath of that because two days after he tore his achilles only day after he tore his he he found out for sure that he had torn his achilles free agency started and past week. You've seen the warriors. Add kelly oubre. Who's kind of the de facto fill-in in for clay And then you have. Kim basinger more and brad wanamaker I think that the warriors are still gonna make another move or to. They have the disabled the nine point. Three million dollars disabled player exception. And they have a little bit more left on that Mid level exception because they haven't used all of it yet. So i expect them to add one or two more guys but I guess my first question for you. Just be what was your initial reaction. Mascot ostler this when he came on the pot last week. But i'm curious for your. That's what was your initial reaction when you saw the news that clay was injured and it was. It was likely an achilles. Well just disbelief. I mean the way it was portrayed. You.

"Million dollars in rookie that kind of thing. I think that the warriors are going to take somebody at number two. If there's the person they wanted number two right I don't think they're going to trade back take maybe a lesser player in their mind just to save some money I, don't I think if they're going to spend anywhere, they're going to say what we earned this number two pick by having the worst record in the league. Let's go ahead and use it. It's going to service in the future they can make up for that by selling their second round picks they can make up for it by not using the full mid level or the full trade exception, I? Think. That's where they might start cutting costs There's been a lot of scuttle recently about Oh, my God, the warriors only use a trade exception in a special circumstance or something like that by basically been saying that. All along since exit interviews like the exception is only us on the right player and this is the kind of framing that I keep using for a warriors fan because I get questions about this too. I'm sure you do With. Why wouldn't the warriors are you're gonNA use the full trade exception like word chance really want them to use the seventeen point two, million dollar tree exception it might comeback as always this it's going to depend on the player no doubt. How bummed is a warriors Fan GonNa D. don't get really gay. How boomed is a warriors fan going to be if they don't end up with Kelly Olympic, how bummed is a warriors fan going to be if they like the? are like when you really player on the acceleration I think part of the reason why people want them to use the training sense of valley's they don't have a realistic idea of who the air with. At thanks a lot I. think they can give this all star caliber guy which is not going to happen. and given their financial situation. You. Really need to be getting someone who's going to. Give you. Guaranteed helpful minutes in the playoffs if you're willing to eat that sour when you're already deepen the right. The the one thing I would say is that like there is value in maintaining that cap slot. So if that tricks upton expires, the Matt's, let's say you get really gay on an expiring deal he's making fourteen million dollars the real value or is that you now hold fourteen million dollar caps lead on that roster, which was sort of Diangelo Russel Science right that was I understand that if you kind of take in you kind of projecting if they'd take somebody number two, who makes ten million dollars and you take this guy at fourteen or seventeen million dollars or whatever they end up using, you put those two together you're very close to a MAC salary throw in an air passiflora Jordan pork of on Looney you're right there and you can basically match any salary for whatever superstar you lump in your first round picks boom. You got ready made package without having to give up Andrew wiggins right and it's not that they would necessarily not want to give up. Andrew. Wiggins is that Andrew we might not have that much trade value in the first place Renzo. UA, Grand League, and if Janas is signaling by the trade deadline, I'm Outta here or if what's going on with Derek Maureen Dockers in Philadelphia and Ben Simmons and Joel. Working Tread that line we know Darryl more is really quick triggers on the trade deadline. He'll do anything and it's not working out you WANNA have those stackable salaries rate where you're a little bit more flexible that to me is the biggest value of this exception. Yeah. Could they do a bridge by where they go ahead and figure out a way to get a? I don't think they're get a superstar at this trade exception this off season I think you could potentially get there later on but even like the other names that are out there Erin Gordon's and the miles Turner's stat like we're like is that it's not worth it like Gordon doesn't really help states chances like he's not like I don't think they. Like. That's what I'm saying. Even this hypothetical if you trade, for James Johnson or Cody Zeller, and then you stack that with Kevon looney and then boom, you got the salary. Throw, first-round pick on their whatever like. That's not worth it to me like the to me the on Aaron Gordon like he's not that helpful player miles turner same thing like he's not like he lost the Montessori bonus is job so. That to me is bonus vegetables Dan Alternatives like Nice, but he took. No. Not. GonNa really providing much offense. Okay. So. That's that's to me where I end up with this exception is. There's really not what single player out there. That makes a ton of sensitive fit. The real value is just maintaining that caps lot and being able to stack salaries in the future for if there is an all-star trade down the line, and if there isn't, then maybe you know that that salary comes off the books to you pay a little bit in luxury tax and then lawn. Yeah. It'll be it'll be really fascinating to Leeann and I'm sure. Hopefully. From their perspective is of in the bar and so to speak with the draft another still working out guys and seeing person doing their due diligence but I think they have a pretty clear idea what they wanna do the draft at this point. Yeah, and then they can really start focusing more of their energy toward getting a really nuanced plan A. Plan B. Plan C. Plan D. for free agency because that's GonNa be those first few days agency especially given the potentially crunch time line and just the team is. Probably going to be two of the most important days of Bob Marston. Yeah I think look I'm not I don't I'm not a general manager only play one on podcasts but. I. Feel like. I feel like it's kind of simple for them like all right number to. Take the guy like I. If that's Anthony Edwards that's James Wise Man. It was they're definitely pretty back, right? Everyone's saying that it was warning that right when. They're down. There's literally no chance. They're gonNA use the number two big right was i. don't know where that reporting came from. That was a lot of like Hoopla right to me that was a lot of and started just. Carry. What's basis said that? This is just two fronts talking I don't know him Basil's in right now. But I I do. It did come it. It comes off as like a Lotta outside or talk like obviously the warriors trade the pick and it's like no everything that I've heard from the beginning of the warriors want to draft a future all start with his pick. You have the best chance of doing that and number two. Now I'm not saying just hypothetically I'm not saying wouldn't be trading back I. Definitely. Could trade back but it's GonNa take the right offer and it's but it's not a given. I. Don't think that they're going to trade all the way back to like ten or eleven like and that's two four in the thing is this draft is so lurid that someone you really like. You you might as well, just take them number two and not worry about the voice. Out, there to say with the reach is who eleven vassals your guy if de he's your guy tires Halliburton's. You trade that Lake let's say back to eat which is a spot we've talked about for. The trip back to eight. is or any of the guys that they? Do, any of the guys that they like are they going to be there at eight like there's not a guarantee you? The odds are that maybe one of several guys they like we'll be there but you know there's no guarantee of anything and so like. Just hate the guy who liked and call it a deck. Like that's exactly same. That's losses implant. Take the guy like. Who you like, you're a decent idea NAFA WHO's going to be there. In the one one guy we talked a lot about his denny and I know they really like Danny, Everyone whenever I've written about dinner talked about the the the message that I get from people on twitter and emails, and what have you is like, whoa cool. They like dating. Great. Well, he got back in the draft it's like. No, there's. No one knows where he didn't could very well be a top redraft. I mean he got over one the Minnesota he's. I mean. Honestly what this is just. Me Guessing but I think was going to happen is at least one of those three big names that are considered quote unquote moon air quotes on zoom here a top free guys as. Wiesner Ball. One of them is GonNa Plummet and by plummet team late GONNA. Fall to the middle. I think it's probably going.

"Welcome to Warriors Awkward The San Francisco Chronicle's NBA podcast I'm your host Connor Letourneau and the damn to by West Goldberg hosted the popular locked on Warriors podcasts during our conversation we looked at which players have the most approve ahead of next season's training. West. Thank you so much for joining me back on the PODCASTS. How's how's Florida treating you? I know you're still out there in the Miami area you bet. Hot. But you know it's been good been spending a lot of time at the pool. Sort of developing a drinking problem but was the bill it's it's quarantine nobody cares Corinthian. Man I mean as long as you get the work done as long as you're sponsored by the have been doing your work, I've been impressed you. You've been reading some good stuff It's been nice for both of us because there's been stuff to write about. We're not just having to sit back and make things up. There's. There's been content that's been readily available with minicamp minicamp. Officially today is Tuesday minicamp officially ended today. It was kind of an interesting thing. Obviously, the warriors have never had an offseason minicam because I haven't really needed one but given the long hiatus. Via let them have it in Steph draymond warrant there So I think that limited how much they could accomplish but it felt like. Given. The fact that those two weren't there they they. They got as much out of it as they could what what was your big takeaway from it? Similar I think. You know what Steph Jay Monahan give you right like Steph is going to stretch the floor in ways that nobody else can. Draymond. Green is going to give you this play making ability from the four and five spot that very few players in the League can provide. But, Steve Kerr and the coaching staff not for office aware and familiar with what those guys can do. So I think it's easy to project their abilities. Based on what they saw these scrimmages and these practices and whatever individual drills and various drills that they went through. It's really just about finding guys who complements Steph, Draymond Klay, Thompson and everything that we've heard is that Klay Thompson is looking good and he's on track to be one hundred percent by next season. So given that this trio then is is going to be back in place where it wasn't last year it's just about finding with Flavors, compliment that core and it sounds like this minicamp was a step in the right direction as far as. Seeing what Andrew wiggins looks like seeing what some of these younger players look like and. Halley sort of actor in two next team that hopes to get back into the playoffs. Yeah. So one day on the big thing I wanted to talk about today is this is a really interesting time for these guys right because we're in the middle of this extended hiatus it's looking like next season's not gonNA start till January or February, which when you go back all the way to mid March when the warriors season officially ended, that's going to end up being..

"And over again over the past three decades, connor is the front offices are not created equally right. Some teams have very confident. For an office that seem to always make the right decisions, some teams do not and invariably regardless of how many top five picks they have shit the bed with each of them and don't bring back any town. So we know that to be true and right now the warriors are blessed with an office that is I believe is is in the upper echelon of the we finally have one. But that's not enough talent in the front office Indian of itself is not going to guarantee you in. That front office also needs to have access to information. Otherwise, I can't do anything with their talent. They aren't able to to evaluate information unless they have it. So reckless minicamp does is provide one of these upper echelon offices, the information they need to distinguish themselves, and yes, the draft is one of those things stupid example but marquees Chris comes in looking like. Young Kevin Garnett, or you know God knows what reason suddenly his jump shot it's crazy Chris added fifteen pounds of lean muscle. He's unstoppable during the next seven days. Then if they had any interest in James wasn't not anymore why you know they found out, they have Chris. Of course, it's going to affect or of course, it could affect who may consider the to pick. Yeah Yeah and. We don't even know when the draft is man like it's A. Ridiculous. Every time they announced these delays. I've actually gotten a lot of people on twitter and in my. Telling me, Yo. Stop writing the number two pick I think people are getting. Tired of me writing the number two big I'm sure I have listeners right now just nodding being like yeah. And Look. I get I have written a lot about the number do big and I've. I think I've pretty much hit every angle I can hit humanly possible. One of those listeners GonNa you keep talking and writing about the to take my man I the more information I can get I mean i. have this working on right now We're every. We've for space reasons imprint. We gotta take last week off but I have story that was gonNA come last week coming this week and it's on Denny Abdo out of Israel and every week I'm doing full profiles on these people. And I'm actually talking to people close to them getting into their back stories and then on top of that, I am doing like analytical breakdowns a how they fit with the warriors for every single guy wars might consider. So it's going to be like eight or nine guys Or lauded majority how much more I can do that? Beyond. Listeners we just pumped fist. Yes. Fans everywhere happy for the ten percent who have already called you apparently or use social media to get tested into. Hey, stop writing about the second big. I. Love Your response to them was how right an entire series about the second big suck on the so nicely Batman. Yeah, I mean part of it was I'm looking for content to be honest with you. But also part of it is. I'm interested in in all this stuff As, you know I'm I'm kind of a draft nerd and I've never really gotten the chance to cover the like this before because the warriors will always make the finals and then add like a week to prepare for the draft and then have like. Round pick or early second round pick and that was that was that. A careful. What you wish for a large majority of my way was funding was spent doing nothing but looking at obsessing over and hoping for the draft so you know and. Then you drive you know todd fuller and you know see the companies I was there. What do you like poking wound I? Know we what we suffered through I don't read and let's just focus back on the to pick and the series you have I don't want to jump back down the warriors terrible draft history but something's been bothering me and I should've asked to the poll on the street right at the beginning of the. Because you mentioned that everything in the NBA world keeps getting pushed back and the entrance is the reason they're doing that they want to see how fans return to the NFL works because Murray one way will allow fans to return to their own bottle which leases in this question. You're not from the future. There's you don't work for their front office. Don't know right now if you had to guess, do you think they will be fans NBA Arena during the twenty twenty one? just a guess I would say, I, think there's GonNa be some level fans yes. I think I could I could I in a best case scenario to start the season, you'd have maybe half capacity. in my. mind. I think that's possible. You see the NFL not not in this market not in San Francisco but you see the NFL and other markets having fans college football has fans don't think that's the smartest thing in the world, but it's happening and. So the NBA. Will definitely. Do everything in their power to make sure they can have some fans because there's a lot of money at the gate. They're losing every time they don't have fans. into goat entire another season without it would be. Ralph, which is why they're willing to wait You know as long as they need to So I do think there will be and I also think there's a good chance that we're not gonNA have been be until. Closest springtime, which is depressing to even talk about. Because I don't know about you, but I am really ready to watch Moore's basketball and actually go to games again and feel like a real be rhetoric. I'm so excited for the MINICAMP. I've been sweating for the last twenty five minutes. Yeah. Then I'm ready to have lawyers basketball back in my life. Yeah, for sure is there is there anything else that you're going to be? Looking for for me it's not as important but. One thing that I'm going to be watching is just what's going on with with some of the young guys because you know the warriors are going to be facing. A numbers crunch roster. Wise and so you're looking at guys like high. Bowman Qantas gone. Anderson. Michael. Motor technically Markey's Chris because his contracts are guaranteed but I'm. Ninety nine point nine percent sure. He'll be on the team next season. So really you're looking at K. Bowman marquees are. GonNa Anderson and Michael Motor, and then there's also chasing Randall and bender I don't even think benders. Around anymore, I don't think he'll be there at many camping than Randall, almost definitely will not be on the team next season so. The but the truth is there's out of those three guys out of Bowmen, discount O- Anderson and moulder. best-case narrow. One of them makes it I mean if you just look at the numbers and what the words are trying to accomplish this offseason I, would be I. think there's a chance none of them make it I think there's a good chance that like one of a makes fifteen man and then maybe another one or two of them good two-way contracts. but this'll be a really kind of important edition in a sense for that because they didn't get to play with Steph and Klay last season and so if they can show something. Alongside Steph in clay I think that'll really help their chances of You know being factor going forward. SHERP in addition to back into the roster decisions who gets to continue actually remain the Golden State Warrior I'm interested in the development of the almost.

"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.

"Why does teams Durant still lethal? Because when you had both staff and Durant on the court clay was free to run up. Picking was free to run off screens and fine open jumpers, and it was a lot harder to send double teams his way, and that sort of thing and you know I'm not convinced that in the modern NBA that today's NBA team. That is relying so heavily offensively. On staff in clay and then maybe doesn't have. That you know elite number, three or four option. Can't can they really contend for a title now? Andrew Wiggins is a guy who I think is going to be able to come in next season and averaged seventeen game, so he's. You know not a bad number three action at all but. you know he's no Kevin Durant. Right and that's the big when you talk about team needs right now for the summer. The loss of Kevin Durant I know we're a year after, but it still has. A huge hole to fill on this team and it doesn't get filled by Andrew. WIGGINS and it doesn't get filled by Klay. Thompson take another least. if he does like that is and his last season with the warriors I mean he was, he was shooting. You Know Nineteen Twenty Times per game scoring twenty seven points per game. That officiency is so hard to replace. That's why he's one of the greatest scores of all time. They're not going to replace that efficiency. What they what they can try to replace. Is the shot creation basically I mean? How many times did Kevin Durant belt? That offense over the years that was that was the ultimate utility of Kevin Durant right. When push comes to shove. You can bail out the offense. Now Steve Kerr's offense has to be even more on. A string has been more ball as they make shots even. Than it ever has, and that was always the strength of it, but it has to be better, and so when you look at what the warriors need. They need smart high basketball players who can create shots for Steph and play right, because if plays not gonNA create his own shot, and somebody else does for.

"If he's kinda sitting situationally late in games because they want a better defender at how does he handle that as a guy who's probably never been benched at any point in his career? Those are a few things that I think are going to be. Interesting. But the reality is if he can just play a role defensively and take some of the work off of Durant and green and the regular season in that low post. And then if you look at it in the playoffs, he actually matches up pretty well with a couple of the guys that they probably are going to see in the finals, I'll Horford from Boston and dwell bead from Philly, I actually think he matches up well defensively against them. And I think that will be a really nice asset that they didn't have come, you know, potential finals matches. It was going to say, you know, it's he's coming into an era in which there aren't a lot of really high scoring centers. You know, it's all teams are teams are destroying the opposition from the outside now, and we saw that with Houston cappella does this thing, but I don't think appel A poses a huge threat to DeMarcus cousins in terms of his offense. And like you say guys like him bead, you know, he he can he can score. He's very raw. And in cousins, I think he'll have a big problem. I think just it just to kind of clog up the paint. You know, he's not going to have to be super agile trying to guard a, you know, Kareem or somebody who's used to devastating low post score because they don't really exist. He's one of the few. So I think that'll help him. He won't be asked to guard another center like him because there really aren't many. Yeah. And you know, this was obviously the biggest news from free agency. But free agencies not over you know, the warriors have thirteen guys on the books now for next season. I've been told that they wanna go into training camp with fourteen because they wanna have that fifteenth spot flexible for various reasons, and I think that's probably probably makes sense. So the big question is Patrick McCaw comeback. He he has a qualifying offer as far as I know he has not gotten a better offer that the warriors of. Had to match it's looking likely that he'll come back next season. And if he does I think he'll fill that fourteenth spot if he doesn't, you know, it's anyone's guess who ends up taking fourteen spot. David west still has made no formal announcement about whether or not he's gonna retire. I would be shocked at this point if he returned he has said publicly that he his two options. His personally his two options were come back to the warriors or retire doesn't look like he's coming back to the warriors. I would think he retires. And he's been coaching a you this summer, and it looks like he's kinda just transitioning into retirement. So that's definitely something to watch one one thing that kinda got some buzz this morning was DeMarcus cousins is wearing number zero which collars number zero. And everyone's like, oh does that mean not playing anymore? Well, no before before he even signed cousins went and talked to God said, hey, can I wear your number and they made some deal and cousins joked today that. That makasi. Good negotiator. So and then people in the film when I tweeted that people were tweeting. I mean, oh, so that means he's going back. It doesn't mean anything. It's just when you have a guy who's a restricted free agent. You he's still it's still technically as numbers. So you need to have a conversation with him. That's all it means. It's like, Marcus smart. No my God. The Celtics aren't in touch with me. Well, what's going to happen? Whereas you're gonna go. Well, he went back to the Celtics. All right on a nice deal. So I would like to see what cost with the warriors. I really like him. He's super athlete. He's good on defense. He's he's been shaken by the bad injury. And I think he didn't come back shooting as well as he had in his rookie year. But I don't know. I think the guy's got some stones. I think he's he's he's an NBA player. I think he would fit. Well, there maybe as a off the bench shooter. You know, a guy who can drill the three. I'm not sure I don't know where they were..
