Warriors

After James Wiseman finally took the court Monday, he was asked about his best moment from Warriors practice.

"Screening for Steph [Curry], and he made the 3 -- which was dope," the 19-year-old said.

Wiseman on Wednesday afternoon was asked if he has had a "wow moment" yet, or been blow away by anything so far. Again, he brought up the only unanimous MVP in NBA history.

"I mean, a lot of Steph plays -- when he comes off a screen and the shot be like 30 feet out -- he be making it all net," Wiseman explained. "That's crazy to me.

"It's just like 2K [the video game] basically. It's kinda crazy."

The No. 2 overall pick clearly knows how to win over Dub Nation, who forever will revere Curry.

The three-time NBA champion balled out Tuesday night in the Warriors' preseason loss to the Kings, racking up 29 points (11-for-21 FG, 5-for-13 3-point), four assists, four rebounds and three steals in 28 minutes.

Curry unfortunately will not take the court with Wiseman for Golden State's exhibition finale in Sacramento, as the 7-foot center has been ruled out.

Kerr on Wednesday stopped short of officially announcing Wiseman will be in uniform for the regular-season opener next Tuesday vs. the Brooklyn Nets, saying everything is "day to day" right now.
