Kerr was asked for his thoughts on the league's hotly contested MVP race entering the final weeks of the regular season. "For the record," Kerr answered with a blank expression, "I would vote for Russell Westbrook." All within earshot froze. Faces frowned. Necks jerked. ESPN.com

Kerr quickly ended the madness before anyone could think to check if anyone had spiked the barbeque sauce on the Warriors' postgame meal spread. The prankster was in full postseason form. "Didn't somebody else just say that?" Kerr said as he lobbed the wisecrack that shattered the silence with laughter. "I'm just kidding. Make sure the sarcasm is noted." ESPN.com

“Best record in the league, best offense in the league by a lot,” Green explained as to why Curry should be MVP. “I think Steph has the best plus-minus in the league. And not to mention, what he does he usually does it in three quarters because we’ve beaten a lot of teams by a lot of points. Every game we play isn’t close, so you don’t have to score in the last seconds or the last few minutes of games. So he sits the whole fourth quarter, so those numbers can get a little skewed, too. Obviously you see when he plays the whole game the numbers that he puts up. Contra Costa Times

Just in time for the final Warriors-Clippers regular season game, Draymond Green has unveiled a line of “Cool Story, Glenn” shirts in his official online shop. Green used the phrase numerous times in an interview with KNBR two weeks ago when the player responded to sarcastic comments made by Doc Rivers by referring to the Clippers coach’s given name. “I approved it,” Green said Friday, the morning after the release of the line of “Cool Story, Glenn” shirts on Athlete Originals that includes three different designs. “A lot of fans kept asking me for it, so the person who runs my store thought that it would be a good idea. “They sent me the design. I approved.” Green’s “Cool Story, Glenn” gear cost $45 for hoodies and $25 for T shirts. Green said that the recent back-and-forth exchange with the division rival coach Rivers was something that was fun for him. Contra Costa Times

“It’s not for a lack of respect,” Green said. “I respect him. It’s fun. Throughout the course of the season, you find things that’s funny. You have to. It’s just fun. It’s no disrespect.” The tit for tat was touched off by the Clippers’ Dahntay Jones bumping into Green on the court during his nationally televised postgame interview March 8 after the Warriors forward had led his team with 23 points in a 106-98 win at Oracle Arena.

What it’s like to be negotiating Draymond Green’s extension with your former boss, Arn Tellem (Green is represented by B.J. Armstrong, who works for Tellem)? Bob Myers: I mean, it's good, (negotiating with) anybody you respect like Arn and B.J. Yeah, I look forward to it. I like those guys. I know them. I think the hardest thing to do is negotiate with somebody that you don't have any prior relationship with. It's much easier to negotiate with somebody you have a history with, that you have a respect for and appreciation for, that you know you're going to get the truth. ESPN.com

I want to bring up a couple of guys and you can tell me what they mean to the team. First, Alvin Gentry. Andrew Bogut: He’s been huge. Basically he’s our offensive coordinator, like it would be in football. His main role is with reads and spacing and putting in sets, little tweaks. He’s highly responsible for that and does a great job. Unfortunately for us, I hate to say it but there’s a high chance we lose him in the offseason because he’s just too talented of a coach to not be head coaching. CBSSports.com

Warriors guard Stephen Curry made good on his promise to send the shoes he wore during NBA All-Star festivities to the family of Deah Shaddy Barakat, a fan who was shot to death last month. Saleh Barakat, who identifies himself on Twitter as Deah's first cousin, revealed on social media that Curry had personally shipped the shoes to him. He posted a picture of the shoe on which the player had written, "#RIPDEAH" and the Bible verse "Romans 8:28" before using them during the Shooting Stars competition in Brooklyn. "Thank you so much Steph!" Saleh Barakat wrote Thursday on Instagram, adding that the shoes were "precious" and that he definitely would not be wearing them. "We can't thank you enough for this #blessed #thankful." Added Saleh Barakat on Twitter: "Hope you win MVP." Contra Costa Times

Warriors star Stephen Curry had his nickname playfully besmirched by a fan at Portland, and the Trail Blazers made sure the sign that was held up was for all to see. Appearing on the video scoreboard late in the game was the fan holding up a sign that read, “Steph is a girl name.” By that point, Curry was well on his way to a night in which he racked up 33 points and 10 assists as the Warriors would capture their first division championship in 39 years. Contra Costa Times

“He only needs to play 25, 30 minutes, and we’re winning games by 15, 20 points,” Bogut said Tuesday after Curry scored 33 points and dished out 10 assists in a win at Portland. “If he had to play 45 minutes for us, I’m sure he’d be averaging greater numbers, so in a way, it’s kind of flawed. He’s the MVP in my opinion. We’re the best team in the league. We have the best record in the league. I don’t think it’s close in my opinion.” Contra Costa Times
