What were you booing Warriors fans?

That was some event last night at Oracle Arena. After a nasty divorce from the organizationthat he put on the map, twice, Hall-of-Famer and former GM (remember that)Chris Mullin showed what a classy person he really is. Seeing Mullins No. 17 in the rafters alongwith other past Warriors superstars was a brilliant, if not obvious, productionby the Ws organization.Whats that? Youmissed it? Didnt know that there was areal reason as to why so many former Warriors greats were at a meaningless Ws-Timberwolvesgame?Sadly one of the most brilliant nights in recent Warriorsmemory was overshadowed by the national embarrassment of fans that chose the wrong time, place and event toregister a resounding boo. And by the way, they chose the wrong target.So how do we feel about the event now? Are you proud of how things played out? Did you have your voice heard? Was it worth ruining the only special eveningof Warriors basketball since the We Believe season? But I really need to know from all who were apart of the Bay Area Boo:What were you booing:

-The Monta Ellis trade (spoiler alert: the Ws were not goodwith him)-20 years of bad basketball (spoiler alert: Joe Lacob was aseason ticket holder, just like you, just two years ago)-A successful rich man (spoiler alert: the guy worked hardand became a success, how dare he?)-You didnt agree with the booingJoe Lacob joins me on Chronicle Live today at 5 pm. I would love to read the results of this onthe show so register your vote.

Steve Kerr takes blame, 'should have broken a clipboard' after early Game 4 turnovers

Steve Kerr takes blame, 'should have broken a clipboard' after early Game 4 turnovers

In Game 4 vs the Spurs, the Warriors committed their seventh turnover with 7:31 remaining...

... in the first quarter.

After practice on Monday, Steve Kerr talked about the loss in San Antonio.

[PODCAST: Player-by-player breakdown of Game 4 loss at Spurs]

"Lack of focus to start the game was really the key," Kerr told reporters. "More than energy, it was a sense of purpose. And I take a lot of the blame for that. I should know better as a coach of a team that's been up 3-0 plenty times, you gotta know you're going into the lion's den...

"It just felt like kind of a regular-season approach on a back-to-back instead of a closeout playoff game. I thought our guys played hard for the most part during the game, but not in a smart fashion. I don't think we played mindfully and that's gotta change."

Despite trailing by as many as 17 points late in the first half, the Warriors battled back.

It was a two-point game with a little less than six minutes remaining, but the Spurs simply made more plays down the stretch.

As for the first few minutes of the game:

"I could tell right away -- looking back at the tape I should have taken a timeoout three minutes into the game and broken a clipboard (laughter)" Kerr said ."More than that I should have had them prepared pregame for what was coming and I didn't feel like I did a good job at that."

Report: Steph Curry strikes deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment

Steph Curry is making moves off the court.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the following news on Monday afternoon:

"After intense courting across the industry, Sony Pictures Entertainment on Monday will announce that it has closed a wide-ranging, multi-year development deal with Curry’s newly formed production company Unanimous Media. The shingle is named for the Golden State Warrior point guard’s distinction in 2016 of becoming the first NBA player to sweep the Most Valuable Player award’s 131 votes.

The first-look film and TV deal also will extend to opportunities in partnerships, electronics, gaming and virtual reality. Curry’s production headquarters will be located on the Sony Pictures studio lot in Culver City.

Curry issued the following statement to the Reporter:

“I’ve been blessed to have this platform and I want to use it to affect the world positively. Partnering with Sony to share inspiring content with a global audience was a foregone conclusion."

The financial details of the deal with Sony are unknown at this point.

In 2017, Curry made about $35 million in endorsements, according to Forbes.

And last summer, he signed a 5-year extension with the Warriors that will pay him just over $201 million.
