Manny Pacquiao works out at Warriors facility


Of course, we all know Manny Pacquiao as the head coach of  the Kia Sorentos of the Philippine Basketball Association. A team that also drafted Pacquiao as a player — he is an old-school player coach ala Bill Russell. And he wants to bring in Metta World Peace to his roster.

Maybe Pacquiao has dabbled in some other sport, I don’t recall, but right now the long-time NBA fan is focused on basketball.

So much so he was working out at the Warriors facilities on Monday. Below are some photos, courtesy the Golden State Warriors Web site.

PBT Extra bold prediction previews: Clippers ready to win West?

With our PBT Extra videos, we are previewing the entire NBA by using bold predictions, starting in the Pacific Division (we already did the Warriors).

Some of those predictions come from fans on Twitter where I had sent out a request, including the bold prediction for the Clippers.

It could happen, they are certainly contenders. But two things need to happen.

The big one is their defense, which was middle of the pack last season, needs to move into the top 10 (and DeAndre Jordan needs to play consistently like a guy who is third in Defensive Player of the Year voting).

Second is the new and improved bench unit of Lance Stephenson, Josh Smith, and Jamal Crawford (he’s not new) need to mesh into a unit. Those are three guys who like to create for themselves and make questionable shot choices, getting them play well with others could be a bumpy road.

Stephen Curry said the defending-champion Warriors would have no problem picking up where they left off.

His swagger certainly remains intact.
