OAKLAND — The Warriors officially had the day off, inevitably leading to commentary about Stephen Curry’s 30th birthday bash and the team’s sentiments on if chasing the No. 1 seed is even worth pursuing.

Robbins wrote that Warriors coach Steve Kerr invited him to speak, an initiative Kerr has done throughout the season for two reasons. Kerr has remained mindful of the Warriors battling complacency with the monotony of an 82-game season after three consecutive Finals appearances. Kerr also wants to invite people that are successful in other fields so their messages broaden the teams’ perspective. Tennis star Roger Federer spoke with the Warriors in China before a preseason game against Minnesota in Shanghai.
