Gilbert Arenas on All the Smoke: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFJUa0C2olc&t=2405s

Always love hearing from former players, especially former Dubs. Agent 0 is definitely a unique personality.

* As a rookie, Marc Jackson (of "unstoppable baby!" fame) was his vet

* Dubs had an under-the-table offer of 4 fancy cars (because they weren't allowed to pay him as much as other teams) in attempt to convince Arenas to stay

* Kwame Brown could've been a star but trauma from MJ... was second fastest guy on team. Could've been Anthony Davis type player.

* Pecking order of Adidas team: tmac >> kg/duncan > everyone else.

* Only ever saw Antawn Jamison practice threes... floaters, wrong-foot, flips shots just came naturally.

* JKidd was toughest matchup

* Kobe asked Arenas to be on his coaching staff for his daughter's team. After two years of trying to convince Arenas, Arenas finally agrees to come on board... on the same as the day of the crash. The crash site was just in front of where Arenas used to have a house.

We should be throwing the game Friday night -right? It will guarantee us 17 or better pick (16?) instead of being in potential tie breaker situations with 2-3 other teams - yes?

Blazers losing = continued drama for. 6 seed. So neither blazers nor lakers can rest in preparation for play in game...

Suns win a dramatic game by a point. Portland misses a chance to clinch a playoff spot.

Man there are some clenched buttocks in this Suns:Blazers game with some really egregious missed free throws on both sides.

Thinking aloud: not sure about the health status of Oubre and DLee, but if they’re good to go, wouldn’t tomorrow be a great time to try to get one or both of them some extended run in the last meaningless game of the season?

In any case, seems like a great opportunity to rest the big 6 vets who have been carrying the team for weeks on end — Steph, Dray, Wiggs, Loon, JTA, Baze. (Jordan Poole can play because 21 y.o. legs).

Warriors/ Grizz have an extended play-in Tournament now. Win 2 out of 3 to make the playoffs! Our core guys get 4 days off and Grizz only get 2. Whoever has tickets for last game of the regular season get a free upgrade to a post-season game, lol.

So, Ws play the Grizz on Sunday for the 8 seed.

And then could easily end up playing the Grizz again a couple days later ... for the 8 seed.

So we're gonna rest our guys tomorrow because:

Curry- tailbone, ankle, or something random

Wiggins- sore knee

Green- sore ankle, knee, whatever

Looney- back issue or something

Bazemore- uh, I have no idea

Reggie Miller picked Steph for mvp. Don’t know if he has a vote. But nice to see.

OT: starting to think Anthony Edwards might end up a better pro than LaMelo, which seemed an insane thought a few months ago.

Goes to show not to draw too many firm conclusions about 19 year-olds.
