For other viewers on the West Coast, Jimmy Kimmel Live airs immediately after the game.

Oh, and don’t forget about watching the Miami Heat-San Antonio Spurs game. Former Warriors coach Mark Jackson will serve as an analyst on the broadcast.

    I wonder if the W’s could use a guy like this to play the wing off the bench; he was woefully miscast as a backup “1″ in his first go around with the W’s. . .

    The sal cap impinged Fakers will have a difficult time resigning both ‘Baze & Nick Young, another bench wing; he will probably command somewhere in the vicinity of $2.5 mil to $3 mil per; ‘Baze might be available for around $1.5 mil to $2 mil. . .either player has their strengths that would significantly upgrade the W’s bench, particularly when the w’s opt to “go small”" if the W’s are fortunate enough to land Kevin Love this no doubt will cost them the services of Harrison Barnes, thus signing both Young & ‘Baze would be an option.

    Baze defensive prowess; he can “d” up against 1′s, 2′s & 3′s; & Young’s “microwave” tendencies could prove very valuable, particularly if the W’s can also land Shaun Livingston, probably in a three way “sign & trade” with the nets & a team willing to relinquish secound round draft picks. . .the w’s would probably have to sacrifice (oh, what a loss. . .LOL) Maresse Speights & Jordan Crawford. . .thus the W’s would have to procure the services of another “4″ but leaning towards a player more renowned for his defensive & rebounding tendencies would be a preference. . .don’t know if jermaine O’neil will be returning & think it would be a bit much to expect Festus Ezelli to contribute as a “4. . .”

    After his mid-season trade to the Los Angeles Lakers, Kent Bazemore proved to be much more than the towel-waving bench player that he was during his time in Golden State.

    The 24-year-old undoubtedly took advantage of the plethora of
    injuries on the Lakers roster and playing in the open court system of
    Mike D’Antoni, but — as is the case with Kendall Marshall
    — it allowed him to show what he could do on the court. After
    averaging 13.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.3 steals in 23
    games with L.A., do the Lakers plan to do what it takes this summer to
    bring back the restricted free agent?

    According to Steven Kyler of BasketballInsiders.com, they are, barring a big offer from another team.

    Kyler writes on Tuesday:

    “The Lakers are very high on Bazemore. His offer sheet
    is very nominal ($1.11 million), so it’s expected they will issue it and
    lock up his rights. It will become interesting if another team offers a
    multi-year deal. The Lakers likely match it, but if someone starts to
    nip at the Lakers cap space it is unclear how committed to Bazemore they
    really are. …

    “The smart money says he’s is back with the Lakers next season, but
    it seems likely someone will put a multi-year offer on the table even if
    it’s just something in the $1-2 million per year range.”

    Teams like Washington, Charlotte, Utah, Phoenix all have plenty of
    cap space and the need for someone with Bazemore’s skill set — an
    athletic, defensive-minded guarded who can also provide scoring off the
    bench — and are among the teams that could show interest this summer.

    i wouldn’t mind bringing baze back to the bay! mark jackson clearly didn’t know how to coach, putting him in as a backup pg. i think kerr would know how to utilize his talent. i wasn’t surprised he did well with the lakers, hopefully we can get him back.

    Here’s another thought, department of “blast from the past 1.0;”

    How about Brandon rush? he is another year removed from his ACL, is a solid citizen, gets on well with the W’s players & generate offense & is a fine defensive player. . .

  • thewarriorsrule

    I wouldn’t mind rush either, but I wonder if he’ll ever be 100% again, he didn’t fare too well with Utah last year?

  • Howard Benner

    That’s why i specified “one more year removed” from his ACL procedure. . .

    Usually if cartilage damage is incurred or the kneecap is effected the stability is a perpetual concern. have never heard (the clandestine nature of sports injuries. . .never want to give comfort to the “enemy,” eh? you would think every professional sports employee would have a copy of “Sun Tzu’s the Art of War” in their attache case. . .) the full extent of the injury as he only played in 38 games last season with a close to flatline effect. . .
