But the veteran appeared to be in good form for much of the 2017 season. Vargas was 12-3 with a 2.22 ERA after winning his seventh straight start on June 30 past year.

The Warriors are essentially a self-driving vehicle at this point. Why? Because those criticizing Kerr's methods are missing a somewhat obvious point. It happened when Stephon Marbury disagreed with basically every coach he played for. Leveraging their IQs as a means of growth for both the players and coaches involved reflects a culture of innovation and openness more than it comes off as an affront to the opposition.

A 2-0 lead, on goals by Brian O'Neill and Jordan Greenway, didn't really seem to do Team USA's performance total justice as Slovenia didn't get a lot going in their offensive zone.
