They dealt with injuries; Cousins was out most of the year as he continued recovering from Achilles surgery, Stephen Curry dealt with a groin strain, Draymond Green had toe issues. They dealt with strife; a very popular narrative early in the season was that Durant and Green were warring Warriors. They looked really bored at times.And the postseason hasn’t been a cakewalk. The Los Angeles Clippers tested them in the first round, winning twice on the Warriors’ home floor at Oracle Arena. The second round against Houston was 2-2 after four games. Durant got hurt in Game 5 of that series with the outcome hanging in the balance.Go figure. The Warriors pulled out the win that night and haven’t lost since.For this series against the Toronto Raptors, they’re going to get Cousins back. They’ll probably get Durant back at some point, as well. Thompson tends to play well when he’s angry and he’s got a right to be angry after not being picked for the All-NBA team. And Curry, although individual honors aren’t why he plays the game, will probably be driven on some level to win NBA Finals MVP for the first time.More than anything, they’re playing for something dynastic.ADVERTISEMENT “It’s not going to last forever,” Kerr said on Sept. 24, as training camp was beginning.Fast forward to now. There are two or three weeks left in the season and then a most uncertain summer begins. Kevin Durant may leave. DeMarcus Cousins may leave. Klay Thompson may leave. Andre Iguodala may leave.

WASHINGTON – Video games, hated by parents and teachers as the enemy of learning, may be good for kids after all. The speed, color and action of the small screen can be harnessed for education, given enough investment in research. And that’s not the conclusion of some band of slackers. It comes from the Federation of American Scientists, a body that normally deals with weighty issues such as nuclear weapons proliferation. On Tuesday, the group called for federal research into how the addictive pizazz of video games can be converted into serious learning tools for schools. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe joys and headaches of holiday travel: John PhillipsThe theory is that games teach skills that employers want: analytical thinking, team building, multitasking and problem solving under duress. Unlike humans, the games never lose patience. And they are second nature to many kids. The idea might stun those who consider games to be the symbol of teenage sloth. Yet this is not about virtual football or skateboarding. Games would have to be created and evaluated with the goal of raising achievement, said federation President Henry Kelly. There’s already an audience; more than 45 million homes have video-game consoles. “If we can’t make the connection, shame on us,” Kelly said at a news conference. What’s needed, he said, is research into which features of games are most important for learning – and how to test students on the skills they learn in games. The departments of education and labor and the National Science Foundation would lead the way under this plan. “This is an investment that the private industry simply is not capable of taking,” said Kelly, a former White House science and technology leader during the Clinton administration. “This is the kind of thing where the federal government has always acted in the past, to underwrite basic research that you need to drive an important movement forward,” he said. Just one obstacle Getting costly research about games on the federal agenda is just one obstacle. There are plenty of others. Schools, colleges and universities are a fractured market. They make their own buying decisions, and are likely to be dubious about the value of games. The gaming industry has already figured out that educational games don’t make money in the consumer marketplace. The new approach would instead market them directly to schools. Doug Lowenstein, president of the Entertainment Software Association, said there will soon be 75 million Americans who are 10 to 30 years old – an age bracket that grew up on video games. Not a blight It’s good to hear a respected group say that video games are not a blight on society, said Lowenstein, whose group represents U.S. makers of video games. “Common sense tells us that a medium so basic to the lives of these `millennials’ has potential beyond the living room,” Lowenstein said. “We would be crazy not to seek ways to exploit interactive games to teach our children.” The potential is enormous, agreed Don Blake, a technology analyst for the National Education Association, which represents teachers and other classroom professionals. But when he thought about how games would work in class, questions kept popping to mind. How much training would teachers receive? Who would persuade school leaders and the public that games aren’t a waste of time? Would education schools add serious gaming to the curriculum? Ultimately, he said, teachers need to see games as a way to help – not as a threat.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
