  1. Iggy. Because he has fun on the court and is the secret sauce behind the Warriors’ championship runs.

    1. Thanks for such a thoughtful response. Glad I read about what you had to say, a reflection of what you’ve been thinking about. A voice we don’t hear much of. Way to go, Ann! Way to make your voice heard! So Heartening to see such a thoughtful response. Oh. Wait. I was rooting through my toilet pulling out soiled toilet paper, not reading your absolutely thoughtful response. Terrible mistake. Won’t happen again. It was so nice to meet you, Ann. I hope to see you again soon, I know we will have a real fun time at the party this weekend.
