Hoops Hype
One of the underrated moves of this offseason was the Golden State Warriors’ signing of NBA veteran Omri Casspi, who will strengthen the defending champs’ bench and give the star-studded squad yet another shooter. Casspi will join Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green in the Bay Area on a team that’s heavily favored to repeat at champions. The first thing he mentioned in an exclusive interview with HoopsHype is that he’s eager to learn and do whatever he can to help the Warriors win. Of course, winning has not been a problem for Golden State in recent years....

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...

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...
