Juan Toscano-Anderson checks another box on an NBA player’s bucket list

SAN FRANCISCO – Juan Toscano-Anderson has spent his entire life a stone’s throw from San Francisco Bay, but never took more than a ferry ride over its turquoise waters. Not until Thursday, when a group of Warriors players and coaches rented a boat ahead of the Giants’ playoff game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The product of East Oakland’s 95th Avenue is still getting used to the lucrative life of an NBA player.

“The boat was beautiful. It was my first time I wasn’t actually on the ferry. That was my first time. I’ve been here for 28 years. New experiences for the kid,” Toscano-Anderson said Friday night against Portland at Golden State Said before the final Precision Tuneup.

The Warriors canceled practice on Thursday and instead opted for some team bonding under the Golden Gate Bridge.

Coaches Steve Kerr, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody were all pictured in the boat waving the flag of the San Francisco Giants in various social media posts.

Sometimes a little rest and relaxation can be more beneficial than another day of exercise, Toscano-Anderson said.

“It was a rest day, for real,” he said. “Sometimes it’s good to get away from the gym and take a break. We are focusing too much on our craft, spending hours and hours in this gym. I think exercising your mind mentally, if not more important, is just as important as working on your jumper and lifting weights. So it was a great day, a lot of rest.”

Golden State concluded the preseason on Friday night against the Portland Trail Blazers. With a win, the Warriors will complete their first undefeated preseason in franchise history.

Kerr has commented on the “good vibes” of a group of players this season, and Toscano-Anderson echoed that sentiment ahead of its preseason finale.

“I think this team is a little different from last year’s team. I love the bond that we have,” Toscano-Andersen said. I can appreciate. Lots of laughs. … Not saying last year wasn’t a great team, this year it’s a different experience with different personalities. I’m looking forward to it.”

Thursday night’s result inside Oracle Park devastated anyone on the board.

A native of Southern California, Kerr has been a lifelong Dodgers fan. Toscano-Andersen is the representative of A.

Toscano-Anderson lays his roots on his chest. His number 95 jersey is a tribute to his upbringing in East Oakland.
