    There ain't many secrets he can share. This is not the NFL, where teams pick up guys cut by other teams in their division just to get an advantage on their playbooks (not sure it happens as often in every division, but it happens constantly in the NFC South). Everybody knows how the Dubs play, they just can't find a way to stop us. And the new dimension that our gameplan might have this year, Cousins, is not something McCaw will be able to talk about...

    The Raptors probably think they may get some inside knowledge out of him, because there's no other reason for this signing. They've got plenty of better players than McCaw already on their roster.

    Nice little 4 game win streak.. I think they are starting to get better, and we'll see how they gel with Demarcus.

    The offense is flowing. Particularly off of stops. And the fact that the big three are hitting their shots.

    Defense has improved for sure but teams continue to target the rim.
    I’d like to see how we do Tuesday vs the Nuggs before I claim they’re officially over the hump.

    And with the Nuggets at the top of the West, I still don't consider them a threat. They're good, yeah, but... two teams I think will be bigger threats are OKC (particularly if PG keeps playing at near-MVP level and Russ starts hitting 3s again) and Houston (who wouldda guessed the Rivers signing would help them so much?).

    But the Nuggets are a good team and Jokic is amazingly fun to watch. It should be a good game.

    Rivers was a good pickup, but i can't help but think about how his ego at times puts his teams in bad positions. He feels like he should be a star, so there are times where he tries to be that, and ultimately fails. It will be interesting to see where Houston ends up. I don't see OKC as a threat at all.

    Rivers does a few things well enough to be useful for a good team. If he thinks he's an all star, he's so deluded that it's no surprise that he gets cut or traded time after time.

    As for OKC, PG is playing great, maybe the best basketball of his career, and they match up pretty well with us. And Schroeder gives them a certain punch from the bench they lacked. Then again, Russ has forgotten how to shoot threes and that's hurting them now and will be even more of a flaw come playoff time. But if he can fix that, they're going to be dangerous.

    That's nitpicking, btw. I don't think any west team is a real threat if we're healthy, I just think Houston and OKC are doing a better job than anybody else this year. The only real threats I see right now are Toronto and Milawaukee, and I'm not even sure they can be considered as threats. Not yet, at least.

    Steph is like Jordan, and before him Magic/Bird... etc. The game has changed and revolves around them.

    Too funny! I don't think Klay will be invited to any dunk contests. It was really hilarious when he "raised the roof" the other night after his 4th dunk of the game.

    Really impressed with Boogie game one:

    14 points in 15 minutes
    +21
    6 rebounds and 3 assists
    3/4 on 3 pointers

    He did foul out, but that is OK

    Yea a couple of the fouls were weak.. but his timing was off of course. I was very impressed. Its gonna be scary if he is going to be left alone behind the 3pt line.

    Run DMC looked promising in his Warrior debut. A bit sluggish but effective. Another great offensive weapon and while not a shot blocker, a scary physical threat on defense.

    Yet when I turned on the radio they were talking about Bell and Kerr getting into it. They quickly switched back to Klay and Curry’s slip.

    Bell is not happy being the 12th man on this team. He will be gone next season and is clearly not in this teams future plans.

    Great win against the Lakers...9th in a row. We are gearing up for the playoffs!

    I expected more from Bell, but he hasn't delivered. He has looked good at times, but he's more unreliable than anything. Probably lack of maturity. I agree he's most likely gone after the year.

    I think they'd love to have him as part of their plans, but he doesn't seem to be progressing or growing his game at all.

    Guys on the radio this morning had some good points. Of the 60 guys that got drafted his year, only 43 are still in the league.
    He has a tremendous opportunity to prove himself and should consider himself lucky to be learning from the best in the business.
    Take advantage of your opportunities or go away.
