You've said you don't want to have kids until you're out of the league. Andrew Bogut: I kind of don't want to raise them around this environment because I don't think it's a healthy environment in a way for children. Because everything's monetary, everything's about money and flashiness and what car you drive. Not to disrespect how other people live, but it's something that I don't think is appropriate for children. I don't think a child should have a Luis Vuitton bag at four years old or have a cell phone at six. That's something I don't think is right, and it's not the way I'll raise my kids the day I have ‘em. Yeah, it's an interesting one. I'll just try to keep my kids level-headed and make sure that they work just as hard as I did to get to where they are. There are going to be no free handouts and I'll want them to have a normal childhood. CBSSports.com

Thompson, who was injured stepping on the foot of the Los Angeles Lakers' Tarik Black in the third quarter of Monday's win, won't be re-evaluated for at least seven days, according to the team. "It swelled up after the game, and obviously we'll be very careful with it," Kerr said Tuesday. "This morning when (trainers) looked at it, they decided we better give it some time. ... It turned out to be a little more (swelling) than we expected." Contra Costa Times

By next season, Lee certainly will be eager to make his mark in a contract year during which he will receive about $15.5 million as he winds up a six-year deal. Unless Golden State tries to trade him before then. "It's definitely a challenging new role, and tough to find a rhythm sometimes," Lee said. "But I wouldn't trade it for anything with how our team's doing. I just see this as an opportunity to prove that I'm a team guy, prove how much I care about winning." USA Today Sports

Golden State guard Klay Thompson will sit out against East-leading Atlanta with a sprained right ankle. The West-leading Warriors say Thompson will be re-evaluated in seven to 10 days. USA Today Sports

The Golden State Warriors announced today that the team will be giving out Rick Barry Bobbleheads to the first 10,000 fans who enter Oracle Arena on Monday, March 23 for the team’s game against the Washington Wizards, courtesy of adidas. In addition to Rick Barry Bobblehead Night, March 23 will serve as a celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the Warriors winning the 1975 NBA Championship. NBA.com

Mychal Thompson, the father of Warriors guard Klay Thompson, is unhappy that the team was able to rest healthy players including his son at Denver on Friday. “This is a disgrace to the fans,” Mychal told 95.7 The Game as he was in town to broadcast the Los Angeles Lakers game Monday. “It is a disservice to the fans. “My cousin has nine kids. He bought his tickets. He didn’t ask Klay for his tickets. He bought his tickets to take his kids to the Denver game for the first time for them to get to see Klay play in person. He gets there. No Klay.” Contra Costa Times

The Golden State Warriors have recalled forward James Michael McAdoo from the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Development League, the team announced today. McAdoo, who signed with Golden State for the remainder of the season on February 19, has appeared in five games with the Warriors, averaging 6.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in 9.4 minutes. NBA.com

Warriors owner Joe Lacob told Bay Area columnist Tim Kawakami last month that the team was prepared to be "very likely very substantially" in the luxury tax next season, which would seem to indicate Golden State's willingness to match any offer for Green. The Warriors have long been rumored to be willing to deal Lee, who'll be entering the last year of his deal next season and would be a valuable trade chip. NBA.com

Sure, he had suffered one of the most gruesome injuries in NBA history. And, sure, his 6-foot-7, 160-pound frame seemed ripe for injuries. But Livingston, now the Warriors’ backup point guard, wasn’t built to give up. That’s why he’s in his 10th season and on his ninth team, making his highest salary, playing his most important role. “It just wasn’t in me,” said Livingston, 29, who also had a stop in the D-League. “Who I am as a person … I can’t live and quit.” Santa Cruz Sentinel

His parents split when he was 2. But unlike the common occurrence in the African-American community, Livingston was raised by his father. All the major influences in his life were men. Strong men. His dad, Reggie, in his 18th year doing maintenance at a bus company, was a strict parent who passed down his love of sports. His grandfather, Frank, followed his time in the Marines with 30 years working in security. Santa Cruz Sentinel

Livingston’s idea of manhood was crafted by a legacy of men allergic to complaining and unfamiliar with excuses. Who view responsibility as normal and providing as a privilege. Another reason Livingston never considered quitting? Because he has three younger sisters watching him. “I wanted to teach them persistence. Staying diligent,” Livingston said. “I’m a walking testimony, a product of all the people in my life and my faith. I’m not supposed to be out here.” Santa Cruz Sentinel
