While that was widely assumed, and everyone knew of the dysfunctional relationship between Harden and Paul, MacMahon gave some additional insight into the motivation that’s pretty notable. Apparently, Fertitta believed Paul had the “worst contract” he’d ever seen. The full monologue from MacMahon: That trade was made because Tilman Fertitta wanted it made — he thought Chris Paul’s contract was the worst that he’d ever seen in business or sports — and because James Harden wanted it made. James Harden, obviously there was a personality clash, this stuff has all been well documented and well reported. I still believe, and I wrote this last summer before things went down. I still believe that if necessary they could have managed that situation; I know a lot of people throughout the organization believe that.

The Brooklyn Nets announced today the hiring of Mike D’Antoni and Ime Udoka as assistant coaches and Amar’e Stoudemire as a player development assistant. They join assistant coach Jacque Vaughn, assistant coach/director of player development Adam Harrington, assistant coach Jordan Ott, assistant coach/player development Tiago Splitter and player development coordinator Ryan Forehan-Kelly on Head Coach Steve Nash’s staff.
“We’ve assembled an experienced staff of high-character individuals with varied backgrounds, both on and off the court, that will help create a solid foundation for me and our players,” said Nash. “When I set out to build this staff, I wanted to put together a committed group that would connect with our players and help put them in the best position to succeed as a team. With coaching and playing experience at the highest level and a deep background in player development, I’m confident that we’ve put the right people in place to lead us forward.”
Warriors forward Draymond Green was 18 years old the last and only time he voted in a presidential election, during his freshman year at Michigan State in November 2008. Green voted for Barack Obama over John McCain, then checked the box alongside every other Democratic candidate on the ballot. “The reality is, I didn’t have a clue what I was doing,” Green said in a recent interview with The Chronicle. “I just knew I grew up poor and my family was Democrats.”
“I was part of the group that believed my vote doesn’t matter,” Green said. “I didn’t understand what the popular vote and the electoral college actually means. So really getting educated and understanding the entire process, that’s what triggered it for me. I will 100% vote this year. Trump won Michigan last time; that’s ridiculous. He and the state of Michigan have nothing in common. … It was decided by 10,000 votes, and look at the people of my ethnicity, my age group, who didn’t vote. So we’re trying to bridge that gap and educate my peers on the importance of getting out to vote.”
