The Golden State Warriors responded to one of the most seismic moves the National Basketball Association has ever seen on Monday night by reminding the other 29 teams in the league they're only nominally playing the same game.
"You don't give my son the best player in the game and don't think he gonna win no championships!"
While Oklahoma was meant to be an intermediate stop on the way to Los Angeles, George played his cards to perfection and on Sunday signed a new four-year deal with the franchise.

Take Kawhi Leonard, for example. Curry's improved playmaking and shooting make him a solid fit for a Lakers team that is in dire need of more shooters and spacing.

Considering the moves the Lakers made after coming to terms with LeBron, it's not clear they have done that this offseason.
