Kerr said that since he became the Warriorsâ€™ coach in 2014, Curry has steadily improved on the defensive end. â€śI thought right away, first year, he really got better,â€ť Kerr said. â€śHe took great pride in it. He told us right away that he wanted to become a better defender. Heâ€™s always been a guy whose forced turnovers, gotten a lot of deflections, used his speed.

Jared Weiss: Stevens on LeBron: â€śThe thing that people donâ€™t talk about is how good heâ€™s shot over the years and thatâ€™s taken out going under, which probably 3-4 years ago was probably a primary option with most teams.â€ť Almost every time Cs try to go under, heâ€™s popped a pull up three.
Jared Weiss: Stevens jokingly asked if LeBron reading at shootaround psychs him out: â€śI will say this. I talked about his shooting & the improvement of his shooting has really taken going under pick-and-rolls out as an option over time. Heâ€™s as smart of a basketball player as Iâ€™ve ever seen.â€ť
Jared Weiss: This interview was pretty phenomenal. Stevens on if he feels pressure to win tonight: â€śItâ€™s a blast. Iâ€™m coaching basketball. Are you kidding me? I realize what a joke it is that I get to do this for a living. Iâ€™m looking forward to the challenge.â€ť

Will Selva: .@NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on new anthem policy: “We’ve talked to tens of hundreds of players. We think we’ve come up with a balanced process.” Jared Dudley: Iâ€™m so glad I play in the @NBA instead of @NFL.. And Iâ€™m not even talking about guarantee money.. That league is a joke
