If you were caught off guard by news the Blazers had traded their starting center to the Denver Nuggets for Jusuf Nurkic and a first-round draft pick, you were not alone. Plumlee’s teammates were just as shocked to see such an integral part of the team shipped away in the midst of a playoff chase.

“It’s a tough one, man,” (Damian) Lillard said. “Mase was one of our guys; like a brother to me. I have a great bond with Mase, on and off the floor. It’s sucked to see him go … and we’re definitely going to miss him. I was very surprised. I figured if it was going to happen with anybody, it wouldn’t be Mase, just because he meant that much to our team and did so many things for our team on the floor.”

Steve Kerr on KD’s Twitter Mishap: ‘Not a Big Deal’

At media day on Friday, the Golden State Warriors maintained there is no concern with star Kevin Durant’s social media foul-up last week.

“It’s not a big deal,” said coach Steve Kerr. “It’s not anything that we’re concerned about. He apologized. I told him a story about something that happened to me in my career that was very embarrassing. The fact is, we live in a fishbowl and we are all expected to be in this profession to be outspoken, and all of sudden, you can get yourself in trouble unless you just want to completely clam up. It’s never been more difficult to be a professional athlete in the spotlight than today with social media. It’s tricky. It’s a tricky position to be in. He knows he made a mistake. … It’s not anything that concerns us.”

Steve Kerr Expects Warriors to be Better This Year

The Golden State Warriors won an NBA-high 67 games during the 2016-17 regular season and went 16-1 in the postseason to claim their second championship in three years. That 67-win total was achieved with Kevin Durant playing in only 62 games. Despite those extraordinary feats, at media day on Friday coach Steve Kerr said he believes the Warriors can take the dominance to another level this year.

“I think we’ll be better this year,” Kerr said. “We’re deeper. As I talked about, the continuity is really important. But the challenge is obvious. Three years in a row in the Finals, trying to make it a fourth. Very few teams in the history of the league have done that, and there’s a reason. It’s a long haul, so we’re going to have to navigate the season, pace ourselves but not lose our edge, and that’s the balance we’re looking for.”
