STAYING: Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala, Damian Jones, Shaun Livingston, Kevon Looney, Patrick McCaw, JaVale McGee, Zaza Pachulia, Klay Thompson and David West. ADDED: Jordan Bell (Oregon), Chris Boucher (Oregon), Omri Casspi (Minnesota), Michael Gbinije (Detroit), Georges Niang (Indiana) and Nick Young (LA Lakers). GONE: Matt Barnes, Ian Clark (New Orleans) and James Michael McAdoo (Philadelphia). STRENGTHS: It’s probably the best NBA team in history, so where to start? Perhaps by the fact that their offense is a fine-tuned machine that can demolish...

Looking forward: the Denver Nuggets may have a front court advantage every single night

Looking forward: the Denver Nuggets may have a front court advantage every single night

The trio of Wilson Chandler, Paul Millsap, and Nikola Jokic is Denver’s best front court group in a long time. The Denver Nuggets project to be a winning team for the first time in five seasons. After losing Andre Iguodala and Danilo Gallinari before the start of the 2013-14 season, the Nuggets lost one of their big advantages over teams from the previous year: versatile wings and forwards (Wilson Chandler included). Having a distinct advantage is usually what makes a team special from year to year. The Golden State Warriors have the best shooting in the NBA. The San Antonio Spurs have...

Golden Moment: When Playoff Steph was born

Golden Moment: When Playoff Steph was born

A look back at the 2013 playoffs: Round one - game four vs. Denver, when Steph roasted up some Nuggets in an epic third quarter It’s easy to get lost in the dominance the Warriors have displayed the last three seasons, making an NBA Finals appearance each year. Let’s not forget that our beloved Warriors came from humble beginnings and were merely the darlings of the NBA, just happy to be in the playoffs. There was a time — long, long ago (2013 to be exact) — where things were different. Before Kevin Durant, before Steve Kerr, even before Andre Iguodala. Before the two...

Golden State has three players in ESPN’s top 10

Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, and Draymond Green were all ranked as top-10 players by ESPN ESPN’s ranking of the top 100 players in the NBA has finally concluded, and let’s just say that the Golden State Warriors were well represented.

Klay Thompson is one of ESPN’s 20 best players

Klay Thompson is one of ESPN’s 20 best players

The Dubs’ goofy Splash Brother is ranked third-best shooting guard in the league. ESPN’s fun ranking of the top-100 players in the NBA is chugging right along, and today the network unveiled its second Warrior: Klay Thompson. After dubbing Andre Iguodala the 43rd-best player in the league, this morning, ESPN crowned Klay the 19th-best player. At #19, Klay finds himself in elite company, directly ahead of All-Stars Gordon Hayward and Kyle Lowry, and right behind fellow stars Damian Lillard and DeMarcus Cousins. He dropped three spots from last year’s ranking, but that’s due to...

Andre Iguodala cracks ESPN’s list of top-50 players

Andre Iguodala cracks ESPN’s list of top-50 players

The leader of the Dubs’ bench is rightfully recognized as a top player in the league. It’s that time of year again, where every sports publication ranks the best players in the NBA, and every fan base complains about how disrespected their team’s players are. This week it’s ESPN’s turn, and the sports media giant has been slowly rolling out their top 100 players over the course of the week. Not surprisingly, the Warriors lacked representation in the 50-100 block (though I think plenty of us would cape for Patrick McCaw here!). Yesterday, however, the first Warrior made the list:...

Was CJ McCollum Right in Striking Back at NBA Player Rankings?

Was CJ McCollum Right in Striking Back at NBA Player Rankings?

Portland’s media-savvy guard called out journalists for ranking NBA players. Was it serious? Is it justified? Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum, New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, and other NBA players got embroiled in Twitter discussions about controversial player rankings this week. Blazer’s Edge Reader Brian is curious how all this will shake out, especially a plot devised by McCollum and Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala. Here’s his question. Dear Dave, CJ McCollum threatened to rank media members the way media ranks players and he sounded [miffed] about...

Klay Thompson trade rumors: Let’s take a page out of Klay’s book

Klay Thompson trade rumors: Let’s take a page out of Klay’s book

Chill, people. It’s tough being a long-time fan of a franchise which makes all the wrong decisions. Even if your team gets good, you spend the whole time worrying about the other shoe dropping. All last year, DubNation was fretting about whether Kevin Durant would take a discount to allow the team to operate over the cap and re-sign their players. He went even further than that. Related to that cap conundrum was the constant worrying about whether Andre Iguodala would leave, along with many (including yours truly) already counting Shaun Livingston out the door. The idea that we would...

Why the Warriors won the offseason: Culture matters

Why the Warriors won the offseason: Culture matters

All the focus on the big trades around the league obscures one simple fact - the Warriors remain lightyears ahead of the competition Nothing symbolized Kevin Durant fitting into the Warriors’ team first culture than the sacrifice he made when it came to his decision this summer. By taking a full $9.5m less than he could have done, he not only ensured Bob Myers could bring back Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston, but also arguably allowed them to use the mini-Mid Level Exception to bring in Nick Young. As Durant explained to The Athletic he wanted to make sure his teammates got paid...

Traffic and crowds, and Javale McGee

Traffic and crowds, and Javale McGee

stay cool out there folks There’s no shortage of interesting players on this Warriors team, but if you aren’t following Javale McGee on instagram you are missing out. While he continues to work (in spite of Andre Iguodala’s input) on his three point shot during this offseason, everyone deserves a break from time to time. Traffic can be hell though; And just like I learned yesterday, I’m not the only one who though it would be a good idea to go to the beach. Sure, it took an hour-and-a-half to get to Half Moon Bay yesterday, but it’s all worth it as soon as you are frolicking in...
