So, an hour before Woj announced the deal, Lee threw out the first pitch in a stadium full of Warriors fans.
You simply can’t make this stuff up, and surely Lee knew a deal was imminent when he arrived at Oracle Park on Friday evening.
Nonetheless, Lee will head to Arizona and begin playing for the Suns. At least he will always have the NBA title and this once-in-a-lifetime memory.
