Kerr is making sure his Warriors get plenty of sleep, too, thanks to a recent session with a sleep expert from Stanford who visited practice. "I know how important recovery is," All-Star guard Klay Thompson said. "We play such a long season. And I love to sleep, so it was good hearing that if you want to be at optimal peak performance you've got to get your eight hours, or at least try to. You can't be hanging out long hours at night."

The Golden State Warriors have recalled forward James Michael McAdoo from the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Development League, the team announced today. McAdoo, who signed with Golden State for the remainder of the season on February 19, has appeared in four games with the Warriors, averaging 3.5 points and 1.3 rebounds in 5.0 minutes. NBA.com

If Russell Westbrook or LeBron James are unable to make a late push, the league MVP will once again hail from a summer spent playing for Team USA. Kobe Bryant won his only MVP award in 2008 after winning a gold medal in the FIBA Americas tournament. LeBron James won his first MVP in 2009, the season after winning an Olympic gold medal in Beijing. James won his fourth MVP in 2013 – with a near-unanimous vote – the season after winning his second Olympic gold medal in London. Derrick Rose became the league’s youngest ever MVP in 2011 after starting for the gold medal-winning team at the FIBA world championships in Turkey. “It sounds self-serving and it’s not meant to be, but you’ve heard me say this many times now, regarding USA basketball. I think generally, they’re better people, they’re better players for the experience. They bring it back to their respective teams, that culture and the winning,” USA Basketball chairman and managing director Jerry Colangelo said in a recent telephone interview. “You go right down the list. That’s been true on each roster. It’s been repeat history.” Washington Post

At one point during the Warriors’ easy win over the Clippers on Sunday, Glen Davis flopped (and flopped hard) after receiving a slight bit of contact in the chin from Leandro Barbosa. The announcers laughed at the replay, because it was just so ridiculous. But perhaps an even greater embarrassment came a couple of days later, when Barbosa tweeted the clip of the flop himself.

Kerr sighed and paused ever so briefly. "David's a great player. He's been an All-Star. He's still in his prime," he went on. "What's been tricky is that we’ve developed a formula while he was out that has been very effective for us. And you compound that with the fact that the whole league is going small at the 4-position and every night you're playing a 3-point shooter at the 4 spot. We've adapted to that. We've adapted to our early-season lineups. Draymond has obviously grabbed that position. So it's tricky." CSNBayArea.com

Meanwhile, Lee mostly sits and watches the Warriors play the best basketball in franchise history. They're 50-12 and the playoffs beckon. "We're winning and we're having fun," Lee said. "It's hard at times. I couldn't do this if we weren't winning. But we are. I'm not going to put myself ahead of that." CSNBayArea.com
