tv ABC World News With David Muir ABC June 1, 2017 4:30pm-5:02pm PDT
taking pictures with a bunch of people. if the warriors are feeling any stress at all, it certainly is not clear. now, they haven't played in a long time. nine days off and they've only played 13 games in the last 46 days. you just saw a shot of steph curry there going through his warm ups. i think that's much more preferable than the situation last year when steph was hurt, hobbled through the okc series. the warriors were able to overcome a deficit in that series, but he struggled in the nba finals. one final thought to wrap it up. steve kerr talked about playing with joy. some of the assistant coaches in the warm ups were talking about that's great, but against the cavs we need grit and we need physicality. certainly when dealing with lebron jim cramer. in 15 minutes i'll talk with an old friend from espn. there is a huge international contingent of media here. i'll get you that and our own pregame show coming up at 5:00.
that's a wrap. dan, alma, back to you. >> look forward to that. thanks so much, larry. >> abc7 news was at the alameda county food bank where they are putting cleveland on notice. laying down the challenge once again as the food banks vie for dominance in the food court. it's online fund-raising competition to see who can bring in the most dough during the nba finals. >> throwing down the gauntlet to our friends in cleveland. what we hope is to put a big dent in hunger, have some fun rivalry, and get fans engaged in our work. >> it's a great idea that does some good. the mayors of both cities launched the competition in place of the more traditional city hall wageers. the san francisco food bank is also in on this and yo can help end hunger now and meet this challenge. here's all you do. just go to our website abc7news.com, we have a link set up there for you. >> well, today warriors fans are sporting all of their gear,

support in latin america, especially for the golden state warriors is just rising so rapidly. >> everybody loves a winner, right? everybody loves the show they put on. but what's surprising to me, for example, in argentina, you can imagine the spurs are the number one team. but to find golden state fans that say, i love manu, but i want the dubs to win no matter what and i want them to win in four games. it's something new to me. it's shocking to me. >> we can hear your broadcast on abc7 tonight. >> yes. if you do listen to me in spanish, you're listening to the secondary audio program. fidget with your audio settings. >> either way you learn. >> you'll learn spanish with me. >> you've been telling me for years, larry, come on, we need you on deportes. >> i've seen you speaking spanish for a while. >> i've rehearsed a lot of that, un poco.
