And now I'd argue that Thompson is even more of a lock to attract a four-year max in the summer of 2015 if he winds up in the RFA Club. Worse yet for Golden State: One real option, I'm told, is Thompson pursuing an offer sheet from a new team modeled after the loaded three-year contract structure Chandler Parsons scored from Dallas this past summer.

How did you feel coming off the bench Sunday?: “It doesn’t matter to me who I’m playing with. I think I’m going to make anybody better. When I’m out there playing basketball, it’s just ‘let me do me,’ and everybody is going to benefit. I feel confident that whoever I’m out there with is going to win.” San Francisco Chronicle

Do you care if you start?: “Do I care? I don’t know. That’s a good question. I’m just playing ball. You try not to make a big deal out of it. I’ve been in the league for a really long time, and there a lot of stories about anything and little things. If my shoes are tied the wrong way, that can become a story. I’m trying not to make it a story this year, and I’m trying to win a championship.” San Francisco Chronicle

Has head coach Steve Kerr talked to you about your role?: “Coach Kerr is actually kind of weird toward me, so I don’t know. He’s a little weird, man. He doesn’t talk to me, at all. No, we’ve spoken. We’re just talking basketball. He’s a smart guy, who knows the game. I think I’m a smart guy, who knows the game. We throw a lot of things around about past basketball when he played, present basketball and the future of the game. We throw all type of things around.” San Francisco Chronicle

The Warriors' Andre Iguodala has never once come off the bench in his 10-year NBA career, but coach Steve Kerr is open to the idea of having the forward do so this season. Kerr likes Iguodala in the point-forward role, especially while the team is missing Shaun Livingston and looking for a ball-handler for when Stephen Curry is not on the court. So the coach had Iguodala come off the bench in Sunday's blowout exhibition win over the Los Angeles Lakers. Oakland Tribune

Iguodala, who played wearing a mask over a broken nose, responded to being replaced by Harrison Barnes in the starting lineup by racking up eight assists without committing a turnover. "It's just growing up, being smart about the situation," Iguodala said Tuesday. "You could do the opposite and kind of just tank it just to say that it's wrong. But like I said, our whole focus with this team is to try to continue to improve and make the most out of our unit, and we have so much depth, there are opportunities for us to get where everybody wants to be."

Mychal noted that the player the Warriors did not trade Klay for in the offseason, Kevin Love, would have gotten a super max contract from Golden State. Klay’s father also indicated Friday he agreed that after Utah’s Gordon Hayward got a max contract, so should his son. “I think he is (a max player), but of course, I’m his dad,” Mychal said. “You know what, though? If he wasn’t, I would say it. I can be honest about it. “I think he is. I really do. His game’s really evolving, getting better, and he really puts in the work, got a great work ethic. And he’s the kind of guy that you can trust. You know when you give him the money, he’s not going to stop working hard.” Contra Costa Times

Kobe Bryant hounded Stephen Curry in the backcourt, and all the way into the frontcourt, harassing the Golden State point guard with the Lakers trailing by 31 in a preseason game. It was probably one of those good-natured, one-superstar-to-another moment of levity. And then Curry stepped back and sank a 30-foot 3-pointer and spun to look at Kobe. And 36-year old Kobe smiled and patted on the 26-year old Curry on the butt. The Big Lead

The NBA is providing great lessons that could be extrapolated to general medical practice — and further show how collecting data is easier than actually making it actionable. Obviously, an athlete in peak form isn’t going to have the same health problems as those suffering chronic diseases, but the automation of the data analysis and creation of algorithms is how we will make deciphering the data collected much easier. There were three specific devices mentioned in the article. Up by Jawbone: The Golden State Warriors were using the widely available device to track player activity levels and sleep activity. Prior to this, they were using questionnaires to measure these health metrics — and they found tremendous discrepancies from those questionnaires and the actual objective results the Jawbone devices revealed. These types of discrepancies were used to help make lifestyle adjustments. iMedicalApps
