We've come a long way…" Guber responded to the email by writing, "I’m taking rosetta stone to learn Hungarian Serbian Australian swahili and hoodish This year. But it's nice." Yahoo! Sports
Festus Ezeli, confirmed Monday morning to be on the Warriors Summer League roster, was directed back to the sidelines on Monday night. The 6-foot-11 center, who spent the season rehabbing his surgically reconstructed right knee, was diagnosed with inflammation in his right shin and "most likely" will not play when the games begin this weekend in Las Vegas, the Warriors announced.
