Pregame Reading

I highlighted this piece in the game preview, but I want to point out a great James Edwards piece in The Athletic (subscribe!) where he talked to a bunch of Casey’s peers about what makes him such an effective coach and leader. Great read.

Also read any of the million pieces filed about the bizarre dust-up between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green, and subsequent suspension of Green. Things don’t seem great, but since everyone is presuming that Durant is leaving GSW no matter what following the season I imagine they will not be looking to make any radical changes and will just muddle through this season (and win another title).
