I guess you’ll just have to forgive me for not having posted daily of late and giving you the behind-the-scenes recap from Sacramento and OKC, although I did not make the trip to OKC.

As for the “hot takes”, we do have some that were brought up on our Discord server (for $5/mo or $50/yr subscribers to this Substack site), and I do hope to transform a few of those to articles on here shortly. From 2013-2020, I would’ve just tweeted them, but as I’ve often lamented/complained on here, I am purposely not contributing any such “bonus” material to that platform because there are too many bullies on there that, quite frankly, do not deserve it.

So, our good friend and Alameda native Dustin Canalin, who famously designed “The Town” jerseys for Nike, has something else of his coming out soon: a logo for Draymond Green that will debut on t-shirts and, well, it looks like another “Hoop Bus” of sorts.

Canalin recently posted the following assets on his Instagram Story:
Love the use of Green’s familiar flex! 💪
Incidentally, Canalin is also co-owner of the red-hot apparel company Trophy Hunting. I recently sported some of their gear on my mini-road trip to Sacramento, as has Jayson Tatum and Jay-Z on his (see @trophyhunting on IG):
Anyways, there will be someone else other than Dray who is on the Golden State Warriors joining the campaign, and for that I gotta give a hat tip to our very own Gabe Johnson, see his author page from our “About” section… (subscribers, scroll down for the reveal below this paywall demarcation line)
