After leading Golden State to the team’s 40th victory against New York on Saturday, Green discussed his breakout season and upcoming free agency with SheridanHoops. “I worried about that (contract) in the preseason and then I said I’m going to put that behind me no matter if I’m going to sit and worry about playing good for a contract year or not,” Green told SheridanHoops. “It’s still not going to happen until July 1, so why worry about it? It’s a great team, a fun team to be around and a fun team to play with. I wouldn’t be doing myself any justice worrying about what’s going to happen then. [I’m] focusing on this season, trying to win an NBA championship. Obviously playing well in a contract year is always great, but that’s not my focus at all.” SheridanHoops

For the Warriors, positions mean so little on defense because they've built a roster comprised of guys the same size. The players and coaches call it "versatility," a common set of qualities that allows the team to constantly switch on and off the ball. With Iguodala, Livingston, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Harrison Barnes and Justin Holiday, Golden State has a half-dozen long, defensively talented players who stand between 6-foot-6 and 6-foot-8. That height range is perfect for navigating between marking little guys and grappling with big men. For example, Green typically guards power forwards, but he can stop Chris Paul in a pinch.

Ariza found Curry coming at him kind of amusing, but seemed perplexed by the apparent $2,500 fine the NBA gave him. The Big Lead
