“I was talking with several coaches and execs from teams in the West morass from 3 to 8, 9. The fear factor for the Warriors without Curry does not exist.
“There are people who will say, ‘I’d rather play the Warriors right now in the first round than the Thunder or the Jazz.'” […]
“These are G-chats and texts that are happening last night during the Jazz’ destruction of a team that clearly doesn’t care very much.”
