Andy Larsen: Enes Kanter ripped the Jazz org in his interview today. He pretended to hold back, but that wasn't a holding back. "I love it. It's a team that I've never experienced before. I actually like playing basketball there. I think the difference is I like playing basketball there. I think that's the most important thing. I never liked playing basketball before in my NBA career. It's the first time that I felt like playing basketball. It wasn't just a one game, two game frustration, it was a three and a half year frustration. I'm happy for both sides." Twitter @andyblarsen

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

He's so unique that people around the NBA still expect him to command a max contract as a free agent in 2016, even if he hasn't thoroughly put his foot issues behind him by then. Don't forget,: Gilbert Arenas and Amar'e Stoudemire both received $100 million contracts after they severely damaged their knees. What seems like a bigger gamble: spending money in the hope that Durant is still the Durant we've seen before, or continually trading players and dropping to the bottom of the standings in the hopes of winning the lottery and landing the next Durant that we have yet to see?

Windhorst talked about Love and Westbrook’s relationship because Love recently said his former UCLA teammate was having a better season than LeBron James when the MVP race was discussed on the Dan Patrick Show. Windhorst said the following, around the 37;48 mark of the podcast: “Love enjoys Westbrook. they have a relationship. there’s a conspiracy theory that exists out there that Kevin Love will go to the Lakers this summer, or next summer, and then Westbrook will join him when he’s a free agent, and they will reunite in LA, like they played for UCLA. The guy, the star player he has the best relationship in the league with is Westbrook.” Factory of Sadness
