Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson is feeling better and on track to return for the NBA Finals next week after taking a knee to his head from Trevor Ariza that caused "concussion-like symptoms."
Golden State coach Steve Kerr was chatting with assistant Luke Walton a few minutes before what became the Warriors' clinching victory in the Western Conference Finals, and a realization popped into his head.
Judging by Bulls Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf's parting shots at fired coach Tom Thibodeau in a 231-word statement Thursday, no wonder the organization struggled with healthy and professional internal communication.
Last May, the Warriors fired a respected and successful coach coming off a 50-victory season and replaced him with a first-time NBA coach, who, with minor personnel tweaks, guided the team to a 67-victory campaign and trip to the NBA Finals.
There is a significant difference between what the Heat and Dwyane Wade believe he should be paid over the next three seasons and that gap has left his future with the franchise in question, according to multiple sources with direct knowledge of the discussions.
