Writers Roundtable: Warriors NBA Summer League Wrap-up

Most Impressive Warriors player In Summer League? Jordan Ramirez:  Admittedly, the only fact I knew about Justin Holiday coming into Summer League was that he was the older brother of Jrue.

Stephen Curry and the Stretch 4

By: Sam Esfandiari    One of the more interesting comments Steve Kerr made at his opening press conference was the Warriors need for a stretch 4. The ‘stretch 4’ (a power forward who can shoot 3 pointers) has been a growing trend in the NBA. Don Nelson regularly used it.
