Warriors still not bad enough to keep pick

Four days ago, we checked in on the Warriors in hopes of seeing some change in their status re: the draft choice theyre not going to get. And to nobodys surprise, it hasnt.Theyre still 22nd when they need to be 24th, and theyre still 2 games behindahead of New Jersey with only 11 games left. The schedule was supposed to be harder down the stretch, but the Warriors are holding their own (noses), and with games at Denver and Portland before Thursdays homer against Dallas, the boys may never show the lack of gumption required.New Jersey did its best by beating the increasingly deteriorating Clevelands, and have a home-and-home against the struggling Philadelphias between now and Friday. Toronto, the other team close enough to spit at, is at Indiana Monday, and then hosts Philly and Boston. Things may tighten up this week.Then again, they havent so far. Dont get your hopes up.

Draymond Green reveals new Warriors banners, puts Noah Vonleh on blast

The Warriors' practice facility in San Francisco has a new look and Draymond Green is clearly a fan of one part.

On Saturday, Green posted a video to his Instagram story showing new banners of a montage to the team's 2016-17 championship run. One player who won't like the new images so much though is Blazers forward Noah Vonleh. 

Among the pictures in one of the banners is Green meeting Vonleh at the rim and rejecting him in Game 1 during Round 1 in the 2017 NBA Playoffs. In the video, Green says, "Alright Noah, watch out now," while laughing.

Because it never gets old, here's the video of the huge block.
