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.

Tim Kawakami

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.

Tim Kawakami

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.

Marcus Thompson

But KM contract is big deal to GSW RT @DrewShiller: @Tim Kawakami @Zach Lowe "Ws won't trade Klay" been story, not "Martin is THE problem"

Marcus Thompson

That's why it's so hard to pass up RT @Dodgers_Raiders: but how are they going to get better if they draft so low in first round with no $?

I tend to agree RT @Zach Lowe: Martin's deal ain't good, but if you want Love, you work around ...

Marcus Thompson

So Warriors aren't only team unwilling to part with key starter for Love? RT @iAMiBreakStuff: flip will want ibaka and Okc won't do it...

Tim Kawakami

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.

Marcus Thompson

Oh, you remember me now? ... Just say when RT @SherwoodStrauss: More importantly: When are we getting lunch this Summer?

Tim Kawakami

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.

Tim Kawakami

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.

Tim Kawakami

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...

Marcus Thompson

One can dream ... RT @bushwoodgc: You mean the team that dumped Harden to save $? No way.

Marcus Thompson

How? RT @SherwoodStrauss: ... But the publicized "we don't want to give up our defense" stuff seems silly

Marcus Thompson

Love/KD/Russ would be ridiculous. Especially if you can keep Ibaka at C RT @Ddub007: He wont go there!

Marcus Thompson

Anyone see reports of OKC making a play for Love?

Marcus Thompson

Hahahahaha RT @runningkielbasa: better chance that Kuzmic dons the orange and black and hits a walkoff

Marcus Thompson

I'm calling it now, Uggla will get the game-winning hit to give the Giants the NL West

Tim Kawakami

No doubt, the GSWs agonized over this one. But they could never figure out how a Klay-focused offer would balance their way.

Tim Kawakami

Adding Harrison Barnes and Kevin Martin's $22M into the mix... and the Warriors decided it wasn't worth even discussing Klay T.

Tim Kawakami

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.

Tim Kawakami

On Love/Klay, @Marcus Thompson said it best: GSWs decided the potential value upgrade from DLee to Love wasn't worth giving up Klay T.

Tim Kawakami

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.

Tim Kawakami

You know what's not a good way to begin a day? Car won't start. Last tune-up was 11 days ago. #towtruckday

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.

Festus Ezeli

Pops can really throw down

Marcus Thompson

I liked he didn't RT @mopatton_sports: And that doesn't sound like 'walking back', as many suggested. More like 'putting in context'.

Tim Kawakami

Hard to beat this one: Emailer just compared my "false dichotomies" on the 49ers & Raiders to comments by George W. Bush and Darth Vader.

Marcus Thompson

This sounds more like Dungy RT @ProFootballTalk: statement from Tony Dungy regarding his comments on Michael Sam wp.me/p14QSB-9wpV/ ...

Tim Kawakami

Sorry, but Dungy is essentially arguing that the proof that the NFL shouldn't be tolerant is Dungy's own intolerance.

Tim Kawakami

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.

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.

Tim Kawakami

Coaches' true (and not necessarily evil) bias: Players they think aren't talented enough to justify the coach dealing with extra issues.

Tim Kawakami

Obviously he has his right to any opinion. But Dungy has put himself into the NFL's "character" discussion time and again.

Tim Kawakami

Couldn't agree more with @mikefreemanNFL: Dungy didn't just support Vick, he went out of his way to vouch for him and his return to the NFL.

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.

Tim Kawakami

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.

Tim Kawakami

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.

Tim Kawakami

Angry Raiders fans: It is probably not my fault that the commissioner suggested that your team could share Levi's Stadium with the 49ers.

What's going on in the bAy today?

Tim Kawakami

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.

Tim Kawakami

The Marlins do weird things.

Tim Kawakami

Entering this game, Lincecum's home/road splits: ERA (2.54/5.82), batting average against (.195/.290), WHIP (1.08/1.58).

Tim Kawakami

In a road-tilted remaining schedule, SFGs have set Lincecum up for 7 more home starts, 6 more on the road.

Tim Kawakami

That's my way of saying... Nicklaus' record of 18 majors is an incredible number and looks more incredible every day/year/era.

Tim Kawakami

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.

Tim Kawakami

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.

Tim Kawakami

If I was Curry two years ago, I never would've taken that much less than David Lee. But Curry did, knowing it was under-market. #ankles

Tim Kawakami

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?

Peter Guber

a great storyteller is flexible enough to drop the script and improvise when the situation calls for it

Tim Kawakami

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.
