NGL this is pretty great. Multiple Golden State references.

Hi! I just want to say that I loved this article (post? Newsletter? Update?)! Great breakdown and I learned a lot! Originally finding DNHQ by way of E1P on YouTube, I love the periodic deep dive and I love learning from the real world examples of players I know so well so my brain isn’t trying too hard to map the diagram to the jersey number to the player to the position... you get it. I know how to keep an eye on moody! Easy peasy!

So. Thank you!

ESPN's NBARank Top 10, counting down from 10 to 1 left->right:

AD, LeBron, SGA, KD, Tatum, Steph, Luka, Embiid, Jokic, Giannis.

Honestly, I have a whole host of issues with the ordering of this list, but whatever. Also, Kendra darling, Steph didn't lead the league in three pointers made last year - that would be his teammate, Klay Thompson.

OT: Aces looking like peak W's right now. Liberty seem shook.

IMO The only way Gay doesn't make the team is if someone like Gallo or another younger player who fits our system and is too hard to pass up on becomes available. Which is pretty unlikely. He's looking like a natural fit for this year's team.

So, what do we want to see out of Los guerreros (the Warriors) tomorrow?

I thought the positive stories of last game were Kuming-od, and Podziemski, plus Saric fitting in just fine.

I think I'd like to see LQ have a bounce back game, and Destiny Odin Usman Guruba (DOUG) get a bit more run. Garuba got a whopping six minutes last game.

Wonderful piece in The Athletic this morning about the annual game between the San Quentin Warriors and GSW intramural squad, and Chris Paul's and Klay's participation in the event.

Poignant, moving, compelling writing by Marcus Thompson II, with a lot to say about CP3's embrace of Warriors' culture and fit on the team.

Dodgers got swept by a playoff team with the least amount of wins (84 for ARI, 100 for LAD). LOL.

Post practice Kerr presser info:

- Cory Joseph is back and feeling healthy

- Rudy Gay is having a good camp

- Dray is still rehabbing but is able to work on conditioning

- McGruder is in latter stages of concussion protocol

- Kuminga & Moody both having really good camps

- Garuba, always liked him, excited to have him. Loon/Dray type player. Thinks fit here is better than Houston (no kidding)

- Dario perfect fit, getting better every day, missed Bjelly/Porter stretch passing big last year

- Moody working on fitting into the offense better e.g.. cutting at the right time playing off Steph

- Kuminga rebounding better good to see, looking comfortable with his shot, needs to keep it up and he’ll play more and more

Rub is what makes my bbq so good.

Rub will now be on the short list of actions where I'm on the lookout for the Dubs play call and use that to direct my attention to where the crucial off-ball action is happening. (Head tap is even more extreme example since the ball's up top but the action is along the baseline.)
