I'm not sure who you're reading or listening to, but Wolff & Fisher are not exactly sacred figures here. twitter.com/richdz/status/…

Tim Kawakami

The way Beane operates has given the A's extra years as contender; it also might've screwed up last year and this one. There's always risk.

Tim Kawakami

This is already tiring: The A's operate in the bottom 1/8th of MLB payrolls; the 49ers operate at the cap. twitter.com/Jorgeleon17/st…

Tim Kawakami

But I'll say that from the moment it happened I thought Dwight's hit on Iguodala was the dirtiest play of the series. By far.

Tim Kawakami

Obviously everybody can and should be cynical about the timing of Dwight's suspension. So easy to do it now that the Rockets are eliminated.

Diamond Leung

Dwight Howard and Andrew Bogut double technical fouls rescinded.

Tim Kawakami

If you want a prosecution, obviously I'm too meek and mild to do it. Or maybe I understand that this is how Beane has ALWAYS operated.

Tim Kawakami

This is how he does it--he takes risks, sometimes they don't work. So far this year, it isn't working. twitter.com/Jorgeleon17/st…

Diamond Leung

Dwight Howard foul on Andre Iguodala upgraded to flagrant foul 1. He will be suspended for the first game next season without pay.

Always laugh when I hear others do this, but yes, I did forget one of @DSmithShow's questions about 10 seconds into my answer just now.

Here's what Riley Curry was fiddling with and Sonya Curry was wearing at the game: instagram.com/p/3MiTOtl3xF/

Uh, I wasn't asking them to do a 1,000-page analysis. Just small talk. Other execs love the Warriors' chemistry. twitter.com/mopaosarkozy/s…

Last Nelson: "He advised me occasionally when I was having difficulty with guys like you." (Laughs.) "He was just a wonderful human being."

Tim Kawakami

Nelson: "He was a very honest reporter, wasn’t looking for an edge. He was a confidante..

Tim Kawakami

Nelson referred to the times that Bergy sometimes acted as a strong liaison between Don and me. Yes, it did happen...

Tim Kawakami

More Nelson on Bergman: "He was a dear friend and a wonderful human being. I really enjoyed his life and wish him well in the here-after."

Tim Kawakami

Just spoke to Don Nelson about the passing of Ron Bergman. "I’m going to go light a candle for him right now," Nelson said.

Tim Kawakami

And when GSWs sensed Hoiberg wasn't 100%, they wondered if he was headed to CHI--and if they should check on Thibodeau. Never got that far.

Tim Kawakami

Steve Kerr was always Option 1 for the Warriors last summer. But when it looked like he was headed to NY, Hoiberg was the clear 1A.... AND..

Tim Kawakami

Interesting, GSW got the sense that Hoiberg wasn't quite ready last year. Could be some mixed/missed signals. twitter.com/GoodmanESPN/st…

Matt Steinmetz

"Wayward sportswriters" (his term) would stay at Bergy's house when in a time of need. I was one and will be forever thankful.

Matt Steinmetz

Ron Bergman wasn't just a hell of a sportswriter, he was a hell of a person. He helped me during one of my darkest personal times. RIP.

By the end of it, I was surprised my GPS didn't just say, "You know Bergy, you're right, take Geary here. You're too funny to be wrong."

Tim Kawakami

My last best memory of Bergy is driving to a great SF restaurant and Bergy having a lengthy fascinating argument/conversation with my GPS.

Tim Kawakami

Bergy made me feel honored to be in his profession. He also brought me to a lot of great restaurants. The 2 things are related, he taught me

Marreese Speights

Thanks lil bro RT @_AW17: Congrats @Marreese Speights on making it to the NBA Finals!!

Tim Kawakami

Bergy said everything with a wink, wrote everything with twist, but he honestly meant this: "I just love being around sportswriters."

Tim Kawakami

And throughout, he wrote thousands of bright, tight, hilarious stories... and told even better stories over dinner.

As a child, Ron Bergman was once saved from the water by Hemingway, as an adult he played cards with DiMaggio & laughed with Don Nelson...

Oops, that first Warriors-Cleveland game was actually Jan. 9. Raised GSW record to 29-5.

Wish I could've made at least one of the Riley Curry pressers, but my horrible deadlines make it impossible.

It's not "a narrative," these are just things that happen and are described or discussed. You can decide what you think. It's allowed.

HUH? All of this happened. It has to be discussed... And I can't stand "narrative" as an attack word. twitter.com/jlamb44/status…
