And how the Warriors try to force feed him for a fourth

I want to have a look at the end of the second quarter when the Warriors were locked in a pretty tight fight with the Houston Rockets, young, talented, and disorganized. It's a one point game with under two minutes to go and suddenly Otto Porter Jr. went supernova. Good team offense and defense got Otto Porter Jr. 3 threes in one minute, and blew open the game. and, in the Warriors way, then tried to force feed him for a 4th three using the Klay Play. This gave the Warriors a cushion that lasted the rest of the game.
Co-starring Jordan Poole the scoring thread, Kevon Looney the quick decision maker, Gary Payton II the big small defender, Andrew Wiggins the solid defender and too-convincing screen faker, and Chris Chiozza the well-intentioned play breaker. Plus Stephen Curry losing his mind in celebration, Steve Kerr as the Buddha and Moses Moody, Draymond Green and Mike Brown as Otto Porter Jr’s re-launching pad.

Otto’s smarts, length and knock down shooting ability can’t normally be found at the vet min, even with the erosion of athleticism that is evident. It’s starting to feel like one of those ‘team of destiny’ type years.
So, poll question. These new block letter blue jerseys...they are ripping off the ____________ the most.
A. 90's Nets: https://www.jerseymuseum.org/team/brooklyn-nets/jerseys/
B. Present day Pistons: https://www.jerseymuseum.org/team/detroit-pistons/jerseys/

I can't say it looks bad. It's just interesting that a team with a unique hold on yellow whether it be for lettering or as the core color would just give it up to look like any old Eastern Conference team.
