The horrific and the humanity and the humor all have molded Steve Kerr, at 52, into what and where he is today, a coach atop a leviathan, the irresistible force and the immovable object. His Warriors are the biggest favorites to repeat since Grandmaster Flash started scratching. And, rather than making the media an enemy — the MO of seemingly every Power Five football coach in America — or denouncing original thoughts or statements by his players as “distractions,” Kerr not only embraces both, but says what he actually thinks about what’s happening in the world, too. “I think some people probably think I spend all my time studying politics, and I don’t,” he said last week. “I spend most of my time watching basketball and planning practice for the next day and thinking about the game. That’s my true passion. But I do read a lot about politics and I follow what’s going on, and I’m worried. I’m worried about our country. That’s really the gist of my feeling comfortable about speaking out.”

A few weeks ago, videos began surfacing of Fultz working out with renowned personal trainer Drew Hanlen, who is well-known for his extensive work with NBA stars such as Bradley Beal, Jayson Tatum, Joel Embiid and many others. Hanlen recently gave an update on Fultz’s progress when talking to Daniel Schmidt of The Talking Schmidt Podcast. “We’ve been working hard every day, working on just rewiring his body and getting kind of a smooth stroke back into his shot,” Hanlen told Schmidt. “We’re way ahead of pace where I thought we were going to be. I thought it was going to take me at least six weeks before we had kind of a serviceable jump shot. We’ve already started to shoot with a jump in week two. “It’s not perfect yet, but I think that by the end of the summer it will be perfect. He’ll be back rolling and he’ll show people why he was the No. 1 pick,” Hanlen said. “So far the program is going well and he’s finding some success with his new shooting motion.”
