Imagine that…..Warriors up 3 to 1, hmmm
Great NY Times article on the original Lakers coach!
MINNEAPOLIS — John Kundla sat in a wheelchair playing cribbage opposite his 68-year-old son, calling out numbers in a quiet, deep voice. The efficiency apartment here had a twin bed under a painting of Jesus tending sheep; a desk topped with a large magnifying glass and a Bible; and, resting on a shelf, a photograph taken on a basketball court in 1952 showing Kundla atop the shoulders of a jubilant George Mikan, the sport’s most dominant big man in the first half of the 20th century……..
“As one team executive said, if you identify the trend and try to copy it, you’re already too late. It’s about defining your own trend. The Thunder were rigid in their roster building. Presti has always put a priority on size at each position, athleticism and positional versatility. The “trend” the Thunder are creating is having an elastic roster that can bend in whatever way is required. But what that takes is a high-minded coach, one who can identify adjustments and enact them on the fly.”

Lakers a key factor in Ben Simmons’ decision to sign shoe deal
Nike is offering $7.5 million over five years with fewer performance incentives than the adidas contract structure. Nike, which presented second to Simmons last week, has shown an unwillingness to budge, sources said. Both offers are considered fair for a top pick.
The early strategy from Simmons and his Klutch Sports Group representation was believed to be a desire to sign a shoe deal before the draft lottery, but they aren’t satisfied with the Nike offer, sources said. They’re hoping that if the Lakers land the top overall pick — which they have a 19.9 percent chance of doing – Nike will move closer to matching adidas’ offer.

Two weeks ago I wouldn’t have given it much thought, but after seeing what the OKC role players were able to achieve against the Spurs…..
It’s a hard choice to make as I’d love to see what RW & KD would do in that match-up. I still have the Warriors winning it all, but man I’ve been wrong this year about Toronto and San Antonio sooooo
