LAS VEGAS -- When it comes to the Warriors and injuries, nonews is good news.And for Warriors fans, they just got a little bit of boththis week. Warriors general manager Bob Myers said that centerAndrew Bogut took the next step in his rehabilitation process recently and willbe ready for the start of training camp.Ditto for guard Stephen Curry, who missed of most lastseason with ankle issues.Of course, the Warriors have been saying all along thatBogut and Curry would be ready for training camp. But after the season GoldenState had in 2011-12, it makes sense to stress the positive and to keep theupdates coming.The news is hes on schedule, Myers said of Bogut. Itsgoing as it should and hell be ready for camp. Hell be in L.A. doing normalrehab, and then going back to Australia and coming back (to the Bay Area) inearly September.Bogut met with Dr. Richard Ferkel earlier this week and wastold his fractured left ankle was making good progress.Curry is also on schedule, according to Myers. Curry wasexpected to join his teammates in Las Vegas this week, but is staying inCharlotte for the birth of his first child.The Warriors training camp begins on Oct. 2.
Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson will not repeat as the NBA All-Star Game's 3-point shootout champion.
In need of 19 points, Thompson managed only 18 -- that allowed Kemba Walker to advance into the semifinals.
Houston's Eric Gordon had the high score of the first round. He went on to win the championship -- besting Kyrie Irving.
Thompson has made 182 3-pointers this season which ranks him fifth in the league.
Kyrie Irving became a hot topic at All-Star weekend when the Cavs star point guard said he believes planet Earth is flat. No, really, he did.
And it looks like Irving may not be alone. Speaking to the media Saturday, Draymond Green made it known he may be a flat-earth truther too.
"I don't know. I haven't done enough research, but it may be flat," Green said.
For those calling Irving's theory of a flat earth crazy, Green is looking at it in a much different way.
"I wouldn't necessarily say crazy though," he continued with. "It's just his opinion. It's hard to call someone's opinion crazy, that's what he thinks.
"Who’s to say that picture [from NASA] is telling the truth? I can make a round picture with my iPhone today, on the panoramic camera, and make it look round. So, I don’t know. I’m not saying I think it’s flat or round, I don’t know, but it could be.”
Green didn't say definitively that the earth is flat like Irving did, but he sure wouldn't say it's round.
