OK. This story most likely will be put to bed right now.
After the Warriors swept the Cavs in the NBA Finals, David West turned some heads when he said this:
"We dealt with some things internally. When you guys find out about that (stuff), y’all are going to trip. I’m serious. Y’all are going to trip."
Well, the media did "trip" somewhat because it's not every day you hear a player say something like that.
Back in mid-June, Kevon Looney was asked about West's comments, and he laughed.
"D-West always likes to mess with the media," Looney declared.
On Wednesday, Mike Brown was a guest on The Full 48 Podcast with Howard Beck and took it one step further.
"There's no deep, dark secret," the Warriors assistant coach said. "We had our ups and downs throughout the course of the year, just like any other team. We were able to get through them.
"Steve (Kerr) asked David or talked to David about it, and David was like, 'I was joking (laughter). I just wanted to stir the pot a little bit.' And he sure enough did. There's nothing to it."
It's official, folks. Nothing to see here!
