No. 32 – not the familiar No. 33 – will not be worn again by a South Lakes Seahawks basketball player. “It is both an honor and humbling to have my jersey retired by South Lakes High School,” Hill told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I am truly appreciative to my Seahawks teammates, coaches, teachers and schoolmates who pushed me to be my best. The South Lakes community had a huge impact on me both on and off the court and its influence made me a better basketball player and person.”
“I think their owner would trade management/the coach before he would trade Karl-Anthony Towns,” Wojnarowski said. “I don’t think they would allow that. I just don’t believe they’d allow that kind of decision. And I don’t know that they’d want to trade him. To answer this first, Minnesota’s bigger issue is not…he’s Karl-Anthony Towns, they’re not moving him, Towns is eligible for his extension this summer. You know Jimmy Butler…it’s more of a question of Andrew Wiggins. That to me would be, if someone was going to get moved — and I’m not saying anyone’s going to get moved — I think Andrew Wiggins is the one you’re going to look at first. Because…you don’t have to make a decision on Towns and Jimmy Butler and one of those guys having to take less on an extension, because you can’t have three [max] guys.”
Orazio Cauchi: Adding up to reports from @Urbodo : apart from NBA interest, Kevin Pangos is in the radar of Barcelona, according to a source. The Spanish team is planning to offer him a rich three-year deal, according to a source.
Curry scored a team-high 28 points albeit on 10-of-26 shooting, missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer with .5 seconds left and shot only 1-of-8 in the fourth quarter. The Warriors would not have been in such a position to win, however, without Curry’s third-quarter play. Then, Curry scored 17 points, while shooting 6-of-10 from the field and 5-of-8 from 3-point range. “I could sit here and nitpick all you want,” Curry said. “I had some decent looks that didn’t go down, but that’s not why we lost.”
Therefore, Thompson turned around and shot a 16-foot jumper that airballed. Afterwards, Thompson said, “you have to think on your feet and just try to get a shot.” Durant added he “maybe should have waited until [Thompson] set his feet.” “That’s not the reason we lost the game. I wish it could have been a better possession at the end,” Durant said. “I definitely wish I had that last play back. So I’m going to watch film and see what my options were. Hopefully if I’m in that position again, I’ll be better.”
The Warriors clearly felt the loss of Andre Iguodala, the fifth member of the league’s most effective five-man lineup, who was ruled out of the game with a left knee injury before tip off. “Well, obviously, he’s a great defender, and he’s a guy I think he led the league in assist to turnover ratio,” Kerr said of Iguodala. “ . . . You guys have heard me sing his praises for years. He’s an organizer. He’s a guy who settles us down. He continuously makes the right play. “So we’ll miss all that.”
