I wonder what Kenny Atkinson’s thoughts are on James Wiseman 🤔 pic.twitter.com/HlosYfQ5Ww4:59 PM

Robert Williams is the kind of player the Warriors will be looking for if they lose this series. Maybe it’s Wiseman, but at this point, it doesn’t seem like it. He’ll need to develop the same kind of defensive-minded killer instinct around the rim. Right, Ron Adams? – 9:37 PM

Would have love to seen a healthy James Wiseman against Robert Williams.
Wiseman, former No. 2 overall pick, has played just 39 games in two years. – 9:16 PM

More on this storyline

Today, Prime Video announced a June 17 premiere date and released the official trailer for The Sessions: Draymond Green, a gripping personal look inside the mind of NBA superstar Draymond Green. The special presentation is a co-production of Amazon Studios and Religion of Sports, and is directed by Religion of Sports’ Gotham Chopra. -via Amazon Studios / June 13, 2022

Tommy Beer: Draymond Green has more fouls (18) than points (17) through the first four games of the NBA Finals. He is the only player in the last 50 years to attempt more than 25 FG’s yet score fewer than 18 points over the first four games of a Finals series. -via Twitter @TommyBeer / June 13, 2022

It goes deeper: Curry is the most “favorited” player on the NBA App as of June 13, and his player page has received the most pageviews of any player this season (7.3M). The closest player after him? LeBron James at 6.9M. Curry’s 43-point performance in Game 4 did particularly well, driving a total of 97 million views including Instagram reels — a 10% jump in content views from all other games in the series. -via Front Office Sports / June 13, 2022
