Tweet of the Day: "GSW has also discussed idea of hiring Mike Malone as Mark Jax's top aide. But Malone said to favor joining Lakers if he's still an assistant ... Malone was scheduled to meet today w/Lakers and is highly coveted by Mike Brown, who wants both Malone and the freshly fired John Kuester ... Those in the know say Warriors have discussed offering Mike Malone title of associate head coach, but pull of Lakers hard to overcome. 

Hearing Warriors are keeping hard press on Mike Malone and optimistic that they CAN get him as Mark Jackson's top aide and keep him from LAL ... W/Lakers looking to keep coaching salaries down, Dubs can easily win a Mike Malone bidding war to ensure Jack has best bench possible ... NBA coaching sources say Warriors have made "generous" offer to Mike Malone to convince him to join Mark Jackson's staff (over Mike Brown's)" -- Stein_LINE_HQ ('s Marc Stein)

@PSP - yes, I'll accept the ticket but I'm rehabilitated now. Never again, I'll tell you that much. Maybe I can get off with a "warning?"

@Hola Justa!! Glad to hear you're well. The way our season ended really brought me down and you're right: we've now been reduced to rooting for the Mavs! That was sooo funny and sooo true. I'll see if I can "stop by" on the RC tonight.

Thanks for "The Friedman" MM. It really is as simple as that.
