Travis like is the assistant general manager of the Golden State Warriors he's joining Jolo Indians on 95 point seven game. Travis good morning I'm coming right out with a hard hitting question. Klay Thompson is still out there but I'm and I. Did you need that article on ESPN. Oh yeah. What did you dictators concept that teams are having more success on the road because perhaps if they were inclined to enjoy the companionship of a female they have an easier and more efficient manner to go about it with social media. Are mean and I think might be part of the probably. Like at. Do more look back on the article are these two guys and they'll take their treaty. Well a little more seriously and you're the travel got a lot better than it has become about as a week early morning flight. Flying commercial it Munich re the other thing that that has more to do that. You get you know they want to have page that they can figure that at all or admitted media that you know they're there source code at the. Travis when it comes to this doubt in your on the road 20300 days a year looking at everybody and everything. Does this sort of character question come into play because you look at your roster but the warriors and it. It's re complete with good guys not necessarily all home bodies. But pretty conservative guys guys who were. Family man and aren't out there on TMZ and whatnot is this some metric that you look at when you're out there scouting on just who the individual list. Yeah picture of me in the looking and well established. That we take into consideration the character players talk about character you know you all aspects of that though. It's certainly something we look we do our homework on. We are doing our futures on the the draft well which. Travis what recently clay in staff and the three balls and follow in the way that he used to. Well you did your opinion what has been the biggest reason why that the team start to play a little better. When you think that we went through all of course they each game she's figured it out. I'm real small stretches where you know you're shot well and it just so happened for us and happy for everybody. Mainly calling. At that time right we'll look. And the little. You know those are report gains in the shops where all that we just slot Kevin Leo you know the well we Cuban American society grew interactive. And I think that's kind of what we thought well. Well obviously the last week when you don't play and shot and followed your goal is good and a. Warriors assistant general manager Travis like we Jolo Indians on 95 point seven a game. Make there's more to add to that Travis. Ever since Klay Thompson sign that toaster the team is five and now in winning by an average of nineteen points per game. Claes averaging almost 28 points per game is it possible the poster has become the rallying cry for this organization. They're the model I want. Zuma story. I and definitely one of those no GO moment the signed. Toaster a travesty we see a lot of weird things from these warrior fans. On the road what's it like when you go to love visiting cities and you see all the blue and gold out there as opposed to. Say what seven or eight years ago when you start of the organization. Yeah I mean where we've come not just nationally but really globally. My agent Europe. You know I think back. Well we won that championship two years ago I went to the year end championships and as he seems like every GOP goes to use you're seeing arsenic. You know goes straight to membership at the time like that there are they really all over the globe. It's really been impressive what your organization done. You know obviously on the court put up the court you know our marketing. Everything and obviously that's popularity. You know there's creatures everywhere you know stretchers he's. Thompson enters eat green jerseys so it's. It really didn't act right New Year's. Are you gonna be in on the trip to China and the team announced that they're going to China next summer for a couple exhibitions Arenas he shrank in Beijing. You'll see me in Beijing we're not on the Beijing which. There are so I don't need to go back it's Natasha. And Jack are like that BLD there. Ice. On. Our right. Travis like assistant GM a little say warriors would Jolo in dibs on 95 point seven the game. Travis the return of Kevin Durant the report came out yesterday that the organizations hoping to have him back by the end of the regular season obviously there's still a long way to go here but. How do you go about integrating him back into the lineup this is a team that obviously beginning of the year yet a work on chemistry when he comes in at. Then when he goes down the chemistry has to be built up all over again and now he's gonna be coming back so how challenging of and approach could that be for Steve Kerr. Although that movie that like we talked about you would give guys good guys. They're you know I think the increasing list Kevin. Got a terminal then. We'll be right back to what we did would venture equally god I don't anticipate that these issues. Travis and no injuries you never say god this is a blessing in disguise you never want anyone injured. But how much does this help this team as far as McCall and a lot of the younger guys. They would get more of the game flow bigger moments games mean something to gamesmanship. Is this something you guys can look at and say wow we got players that play that probably would not have played in Barnes and on the additions. Do you think this team is going to be better off moving then when when he does return. Yeah I was there last week even though our pocket and you know. Steve actually brought it there for a while you know these really feel like this is going to be great for us because it says it's given guys like Patrick chipped out there give Bible minutes. That let you get the playoffs you can get it all back on to be productive war. You know. Matt Barnes you live outside. When we probably wouldn't have to worry what could we met in great fortune go back really good team defender. A good rebounder. You know bring this important on the perimeter walls bolted to play more. Cup to competition can you know that the warden report. And then we get general. No that's going to be the most emotionally just because it's they are and in our locker room knows what he brings the cable so you know that that's going to be a big news or emotionally and com I think you'll like will be in force long term hopefully and mean look at Kevin Kevin play in the Olympics last year you know you play it all the way it is simple answers are responsible you know. Never once you guys get hurt them effectively going to be able to have this beatle Paul which didn't get this summer hopefully that'll be good there's bodies well. Travis sweet sixteen action starts tonight. Any particular teams you might be ancient games you might be adjusted watching bird personally for me I'm I'm all over UCLA Kentucky when that thing it's on. Love watching Alonso ballplayer forget about the father I think kid is as smooth as poured water out there but for you with the tournament anything compelling you wanna keep an eye on. You know a couple games that I. They have some players who have interest some of render class that we can't really talk about the players to watch in the party in this game. And then the mission in order to gain tonight I think it could vote against the Marlins in the. So yes. Yeah so you know what we're talking about credit but tonight Oglesby to date of purchase for me personally. And you still have to keep an eye on is such things as the NI TCI TC BI if those even exist anymore it didn't get to a point where you're watching some of the stuff and you think. You've got to be give me a watch and some. Either the. They look at I guess I got a pretty good job. Yeah I watched basketball tournament the American as it's ever ever gets. Are there isn't good job Larry air. All you want and Andy Miller every day's pay these are the games are denied the with the prospect should be locked until. Are intensely well in my dad couldn't get me beauty people. Awesome stuff. Travis like Mori's assistant general manager would Jolo and dams on 95 point seven a game Travis is always. Thank you so much for your time enjoy the games this weekend and that look forward to catch over the next week. No problems you know kindergarten and. Damn good advice yeah I think it lost like two weeks after I ended up meeting my wife it's a disaster timing for me. I don't even know little blood until Monday grab lunch one day in explaining Kimi and I want you guys may actually probably the biggest debate is Alec can go to the worst idea. Imagine imagine being DC's board too late for freeloaders too early to care for the vice Versa. And you know airline mile I would need all the help I could got successes that you know before on the one and done one girlfriend wanna live in itself. There yet and that's pretty efficient.
