A long wait to draft a big man

A long wait to draft a big man With Andrew Bogut heading into the final season of his contract and Festus Ezeli, Marreese Speights and Anderson Varejao set to become free agents next month, the Warriors could be looking for a big man in Thursday’s NBA draft. There are, however, a handful of centers who might be on the board when the Warriors select at No. 30 overall. “If you can get a guy at 30 who can be a rotational player, I think you’ve done well,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers said. The goal is to find a guy we think can play. Croatian teenagers Ivica Zubac (a...

Warriors beaten from the start of Game 7 vs. Cavs

Festus Ezeli got the starting nod in place of injured Andrew Bogut for Sunday’s Game 7, a decision that might just be remembered as the one that cost the Warriors the championship against Cleveland. The Warriors lost his first three postseason starts when he averaged 0.7 points on 0-for-4 shooting, four rebounds and 0.3 blocked shots as a rookie in the second round against San Antonio. In the second half, he missed a jumper and committed a foul during a Cleveland 12-5 run that tied it 54-54 with 8:53 remaining in the third quarter. Ezeli played only 2 1/2 minutes the rest of the game,...

Cavaliers aren't favored in Game 7, but never tell Han Solo the odds

The Cavaliers aren't favored in Game 7. The history does not favor them. But Han Solo never wants to be told the odds. The Cavaliers and Warriors Game 7 showdown will tip off at 8 PM EST. The Cavaliers have come a long way to tie this series up. They've got all the momentum, having won the last two games. LeBron James lost his freaking mind in Games 5 and 6, putting his best consecutive games together in his career at the best time. The Warriors are suddenly banged up, with Andrew Bogut out for the series and Andre Iguodala nursing a bad back. Nonetheless, that hasn't stopped Vegas from...

Andrew Bogut out six to eight weeks, done for the Finals

He hasn't played a ton of minutes, but the Warriors are now down a starter In Game 5, the Warriors were down their best defensive player, Draymond Green.

Smith layup in the Cavs' road win in Game 5. The good news is that it doesn't appear that he will need surgery, or that it will be an injury that impacts his career moving forward. It does put his ability to compete in the Olympics for Australia in some doubt. Bogut has started...
