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."

Bad news for the Baltimore Orioles: Shortstop J.J. Hardy is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a hairline fracture of his left foot, and is expected to miss about six weeks. The three-time Gold Glover is one of only four major-league shortstops without an error so far this season. The O's are expected to recall utility man Ryan Flaherty from Triple-A Norfolk to fill Hardy's roster spot. Manny Machado will likely slide over to shortstop with Flaherty getting the majority of the action at third base.
