“He’s going to make it easy for Steve,” said Leandro Barbosa, who played with Nash and for D’Antoni in Phoenix and now coaches for the Warriors. “Mike is one of the best coaches that I ever played for. He’s also one of the best from an offensive standpoint. He knows a lot of plays, he knows a lot of tricks, I think he’s going to be awesome for Kyrie (Irving) and (Kevin) Durant.”
“People talk about the Phoenix teams I played on and this sort of revolutionary tone of how it impacted the game, but the truth be told, Mike D’Antoni’s brilliance in much of that was he allowed it to evolve instead of getting in the way,” Nash said. “I feel like a lot of coaches feel the need to design every aspect of something, and I feel you leave too much on the table that can be found through the personalities, the connectivity, the dynamic on the floor and in the room.” “Mike goes with the flow,” Barbosa said. “Their offense is going to flow.”
Leandro Barbosa and Andre Iguodala were teammates on the Warriors during the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons. How much fun is the “Brazilian Blur” having watching the 2015 NBA Finals MVP compete in the Orlando bubble? “Iggy lied to me,” Barbosa jokingly said this week on the “Runnin’ Plays” podcast. “He said that he was going to retire after his deal with the Warriors (expired). And he got an extra two years with the Miami Heat. “I sent him a text, I said, ‘Man. Stop stealing money from other teams, man. Come on. You gotta retire.’
Thompson has mostly been out of the spotlight since the end of the Warriors’ season in March, keeping his rehab and life private … give or take a social-media post or a kayak trip. So, if you’re wondering how Klay is doing heading into camp, his former teammate and current Warriors player mentor coach Leandro Barbosa has the latest. “He’s very good,” Barbosa said on the latest episode of the “Runnin’ Plays” podcast. “He’s my boy, ya know? He’s happy. I haven’t seen Klay for a couple years, and I went to his house [this week], we kind of hung out and we kind of talked. He was happy with me being here, I was happy being here, especially having a chat with him. But he’s doing good, he’s awesome, he’s recovered.”
