Been in the league five years. You have to go to the playoffs in five years you just signed a six year contract. With a team that's been the playoffs once in sixteen years. I mean isn't it logical -- some part of your mind you're thinking man I may turn around what I'm 32 years old and realize. I've never been in the NBA playoffs is that. A concern for you were suddenly thought about. No it's not -- mean that one in my conversations with mr. Riley over the past few days as has been here about the commitment that they're gonna -- and and not only signing me but. But you know keeping these young guys come and and and -- and also find another guys to help us out I think the commitment is there. And if I didn't think that we had a chance to win and go to the playoffs -- be a good team and a good franchise for now. And moving forward that I would have made this decision I thoroughly believe it. And now you know it's it's guys how to stop talking and a couple months from now -- start you know getting towards that. Warriors are in the process of being sold. Are you aware that indeed that factor in in any way your decision. I'm aware of it just just from what you said right there as far as I'm aware that it's being -- not really. And you know who who the candidates articulate at all and information but. In I know that the -- make good decisions and they're gonna bring in a good team of people. And and that's what I've been told and and that things are headed in the right direction and you know that that's that's what's most important.
