Curry shrugs off Westbrook's 'who is he?' comment

OAKLAND -- Stephen Curry still believes Rockets guard James Harden deserves to win the MVP award, even if Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, another MVP contender, was utterly dismissive of Curry’s opinion.

When informed earlier this week that Curry considered Harden the MVP, Westbrook punctuated his response by asking of Curry: “Who is he?”

Asked about Westbrook’s comment, Curry on Saturday morning provided another example of his instinct for discretion.

“No, I don’t have a response to him,” Curry said. “But if you ask anybody in the league, they’ll probably have an opinion on who they think (should win), whether you agree with it or not. It’s not, obviously, my decision.”

Harden and Westbrook are the leading contenders for the award Curry has won in each of the past two seasons.

It should be noted, too, that ever since Kevin Durant left the Thunder to join the Warriors, Westbrook’s notorious competitiveness goes to another level regarding anything related to the Warriors.

No matter, according to Curry.

“I try to stay away from those Twitter/Social Media interview wars,” he said. “It doesn’t do anything for me. So I will be myself, say what I think and keep it moving.”

Suns guard sustains torn ACL in left knee

Brandon Knight may not take the floor next year.

The Suns guard tore the ACL in his left knee and could miss the entire season, the team announced on Tuesday afternoon.

He sustained the injury last week while playing in Florida.

Knight's production fell off during the 2016-17 campaign, when he appeared in just 54 games.

He averaged career lows in practically every category -- points (11.0), assists (2.4), rebounds (2.2), steals (0.5), field goal percentage (39.8) and 3-point percentage (32.4).

The year prior, he registered 19.6 points, 5.1 assists and 3.9 rebounds per contest.

Knight entered the league as the eighth overall pick in the 2011 draft.

After two seasons with Detroit, he was traded to Milwaukee.

In February 2015, he was traded to Phoenix.

Knight is scheduled to make over $13.6 million next season, over $14.6 million in 2018-19 and over $15.6 million in 2019-20.

With Kyrie Irving reportedly requesting a trade from Cleveland, several national reporters have listed the Suns as a potential landing spot for the All-Star guard...

Report: Blazers trade Allen Crabbe


Report: Blazers trade Allen Crabbe

Allen Crabbe will end up in Brooklyn after all.

The Blazers will trade the shooting guard to the Nets, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

In exchange, Brooklyn will send big man Andrew Nicholson to Portland.

Nicholson will not suit up for the the Blazers, as Portland will waive and stretch his contract.

Last summer, Crabbe -- who was a restricted free agent -- signed a 4-year, $75 million sheet from the Nets.

The former Cal star returned to the Pacific Northwest because the Blazers matched the offer.

Last season, Crabbe averaged a career-best 10.7 points per game, while shooting just under 47 percent from the field and over 44 percent from deep.

He averaged just 5.5 points in the opening round of the playoffs against the Warriors.
