Golden State Warriors Training Camp Links - Day 4

Day 4's morning practice just finished. There was some non-contact practice, then shooting drills. I saw Udoh wearing a left wrist wrap (brace?) and I saw Lin with a right shoulder brace, probably for that "loose shoulder" reported earlier this week. In the background, you can see Biedrins practicing some around-the-paint jump shots. In the foreground, there's a 3 pt around-the-world-with-punishment shooting practice going on. "With-punishment" means the shooter has to go back to the previous spot if he misses 3 times at that spot. 3 made shots, and the shooters goes to the next spot. The shooters were Curry, Radman, Reggie, and DWright. Guess who finished 1st and who finished last.

As for news, if there are any news, they'll come later in the day. The only real piece of news I'm waiting for is who the captains will be. It's safe to say that Monta and Lee will be captains. Will there be a third captain, perhaps a bench captain?

Tomorrow's interviews: David Lee, a surprise Ast Coach.
