"I love my daddy." DeMar DeRozan's daughter had an important message at the Raptors' post-game press conference: es.pn/1Z44d2l

Before Trail Blazers practice on Tuesday, Portland coach Terry Stotts responded to the notion that he'd need to monitor swingman Gerald Henderson in Game 2. Henderson and Warriors center Anderson Varejao were ejected in the second half on Sunday after they were assessed for a pair of double-technical fouls following an altercation. The Trail Blazers believe Varejao deliberately swept his leg in an attempt to trip Henderson in the third quarter. "Varejao made a dirty play," Stotts said. "It was a leg whip and I thought it was a dangerous play. I thought Gerald's reaction to being tripped like that was appropriate, otherwise no one would've seen it. So, it was unfortunate that he got tossed on the second [set of double technical fouls], but you have to defend yourself, especially when somebody makes a dirty play."

Kerr was then asked if Draymond's a superstar. He said, "I'm not sure what a superstar is. Because sometimes that could mean the guy with all the endorsements. Draymond doesn't have all the endorsements yet. The way I would phrase it, instead of superstar, is he a top 10 player in the NBA? In Draymond's case, 100 percent. And I think if you asked all the coaches in the league, they would agree with me on that. He's a top 10 player."

Kerr was asked if Draymond's the best all around player. He said, "Well all around I think is another phrase for 2-way. I say 2-way. I think Klay has to be considered part of that group. I think Kawhi Leonard obviously is part of that group. LeBron James, there's some obvious ones that you think of immediately. Draymond has not been mentioned in that conversation that often, but he should be. He absolutely should be when you think about what he does for us at both ends. He literally guards 1 through 5. Nobody in the league does that, and then on offense, the way he's turned the corner the last couple weeks with his decision making, he's no longer having those 5 turnover nights. He's zero to 2 turnovers night after night. He's giving us 15 to 20 points. He's getting triple doubles or near triple doubles. So ya, he's on that list. Whatever is your personal list, he's on that list."

Despite a report LeBron will star in Space Jam 2, no deal is in place sources say. Maybe at some point but not as of yet.
