You never want to offer a top asset and still have the other team say, "Fine and what else?" CLE might be in this spot now w/Wiggins & MIN.
Going down that road is exactly what caused most of Minnesota to declare Twitter war on me last week, so I'll just leave it at that for now.
You can tell me you KNOW what the real sticking point is & I can tell you it's all the points. I don't get where we go from there, though.
People can raise issues with specific points to this. Fair. But I'm saying GSW decision is based on the accumulation of ALL these points.
If you're a team with massive salaries coming up 2-3-4 years down the road, you don't want to push extra money 2-3 years down the road.
The Warriors valued Klay and Lee (and Barnes) too much to start chipping away at Love's value by having to take back MIN's bad money.
What I've said from the start: Love is more valuable than Klay, but if I'm the Warriors, I wouldn't want any part of Kevin Martin's $22M...
Anyone see reports of OKC making a play for Love?
I'm calling it now, Uggla will get the game-winning hit to give the Giants the NL West
No doubt, the GSWs agonized over this one. But they could never figure out how a Klay-focused offer would balance their way.
Adding Harrison Barnes and Kevin Martin's $22M into the mix... and the Warriors decided it wasn't worth even discussing Klay T.
Nobody in the league values DLee as much as the Warriors do. That's their call and their right, but I think I've explained this before.
So wait, the Oakland authorities (who had no leverage) and the A's (who had no leverage)... agreed to a deal because they had to? SHOCKING.
And Dungy is saying the OPINIONS of people about Sam will cause more of a distraction than Sam is worth. OK, but that's worth a discussion.
Pops can really throw down
Hard to beat this one: Emailer just compared my "false dichotomies" on the 49ers & Raiders to comments by George W. Bush and Darth Vader.
Sorry, but Dungy is essentially arguing that the proof that the NFL shouldn't be tolerant is Dungy's own intolerance.
I understand some of what Dungy is trying to say, but then he says his own comments about the distraction prove it's a distraction? Awful.
Woke up today thinking today was going to be a very slow sports day. It's not.
Tears of joy
Giving Back to the ones I started this journey with
And within that talent/not-enough-talent bias, of course, there are millions of other biases. But if the guy's a star, all issues are minor.
Coaches' true (and not necessarily evil) bias: Players they think aren't talented enough to justify the coach dealing with extra issues.
Obviously he has his right to any opinion. But Dungy has put himself into the NFL's "character" discussion time and again.
Yuba City it's been too long
Yes, I'm back from vacation
Harrison Barnes & Draymond Green have been added to the 13man U.S. Select team that will train vs. the national squad in Las Vegas next week
Ppl in Miami cannot drive in the rain!!
Going back to #4
Heading over to the JCCC annual golf tournament. If you're playing & eating, think of good questions for me. Or I'll just tell Shaq stories.
Goodell could've said this is the 49ers' day, NFL just wants what's best for every team. Instead he said Levi's could be a Raiders option.
But neither the Raiders or the 49ers have been interested in this--so far. Which is what I've written. You know, to be accurate.
Actually--if angry Raiders fans can forgive me--the NFL for a while has been suggesting the teams share Levi's Stadium to solve the problem.
Angry Raiders fans: It is probably not my fault that the commissioner suggested that your team could share Levi's Stadium with the 49ers.

Harrison Barnes in his Facebook Q&A on how he feels about the Warriors' chances this year: "Going all the way."
The moment of truth.... http://t.co/FNT5Nh5q8S
Man, I'm an optimist and I just don't think you can minimize Summer League enough.
Lincecum's next start will be Game 1 of LAD series at AT&T on Friday vs. Greinke, who will have an extra day of rest due to an LA off-day.
Want to get out of the house
What's going on in the bAy today?
The Marlins are like the ultra-discount Dodgers: I have no idea what any player is going to do at any time. But I know it'll be weird.
The Marlins do weird things.
Entering this game, Lincecum's home/road splits: ERA (2.54/5.82), batting average against (.195/.290), WHIP (1.08/1.58).
In a road-tilted remaining schedule, SFGs have set Lincecum up for 7 more home starts, 6 more on the road.
That's my way of saying... Nicklaus' record of 18 majors is an incredible number and looks more incredible every day/year/era.
Rory is incredible--and if Tiger had won ALL of the majors Rory has won in the last three years, Tiger would still be 1 short of Jack.
Gotta love McIlroy's "This Is Not Going to the Right" swing off the 18th tee. Totally logical, too. He's no Van de Velde.
To be blunt: How dumb would it be for the Warriors to decide they can't keep Klay T just because they got Curry on a great deal?
a great storyteller is flexible enough to drop the script and improvise when the situation calls for it
Not all draft picks work out. Warriors have a deadline to decide how much further they want to take it with Nedovic. Not a unique situation.
I picked Sergio to win this week. I hope Im wrong
