The 62-year-old Gervin had two immediate reactions when he learned of Thompson's incredible feat. First: "I said, 'Wowwwww, that's pretty impressive.'" Then: "But I'd like to see him try to get 33 or 37 in a quarter when there wasn't no three-point line." Within seconds, Gervin's friendly baritone gives way to a hearty, mischievous chuckle. The former high flyer and Hall of Famer, who still answers to the nickname Iceman, is speaking from pride, not bitterness, with an eye toward historical accuracy. Bleacher Report

It was, by any measure, an electrifying, unfathomable performance, worthy of praise and a place in the history books. Just not the same history books that Gervin occupies, at least according to Gervin. "I don't feel—and it's funny, everybody laughs—I don't feel he broke my record," Gervin told Bleacher Report in a phone interview. "I feel he set a new record. He set a new record for the new NBA."

Kerr admitted the club got absolutely no warning Bogut wasn’t going to play. He just said he wasn’t feeling well and bolted. Didn’t even give it a try. Kerr maintained he isn’t worried about Bogut’s dependability when pressed on the subject after the game. Privately, though, you know all the Warriors’ brass are discussing this behind closed doors because Bogut is such a monumental element to the Warriors’ long-term aspirations. It’s a 7-foot asterisk to them possibly making it the NBA Finals and winning it all. Without him, they probably don’t get through the second round in the West. Contra Costa Times
