Warriors’ Matt Barnes has 1 or 2 seasons ‘left in the tank’

A former second-round pick from UCLA, he has played for nine teams and never signed a contract that lasted more than two years.

Matt Barnes’ return to Warriors sparks memories of his mother

Late Monday night, in the visitors’ locker room at AT&T Center, Matt Barnes’ iPhone lit up with a text from his former Warriors teammate, Stephen Jackson: Congrats, man! … In that moment Monday, after seeing Barnes help Golden State cap its four-game sweep of the Spurs in the Western Conference finals, Jackson recognized that this was about more than Barnes reaching his first NBA Finals. Oakland is where he established himself as an NBA player, made some of his most lasting friendships and carved out a place in postseason lore. In the summer of 2006, after an underwhelming stint...

Warriors’ McCaw does best Iguodala imitation in Game 2 win

Patrick McCaw had become the invisible man in this Warriors postseason stampede. McCaw collected 18 points, five assists and three steals in 27 minutes Tuesday night. Head coach Steve Kerr made the suggestion for McCaw to take Iguodala’s early minutes. The Warriors could have gone with Matt Barnes instead, but Kerr no doubt remembered the way McCaw ably subbed for Kevin Durant in the first-round series against Portland, starting Games 2 and 3. Acting head coach Mike Brown traced McCaw’s readiness to Kerr’s habit of stretching his bench and keeping everyone involved. McCaw, a...

With San Antonio demolishing Houston (114-75), the Spurs advance to a showdown against the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals, which start Sunday. Here’s a look at the schedule. With any hope, Matt Barnes, lover of the swanky LA night-life scene, will grow to be happy with the offerings in San Antonio ... given that the trip there will be to play in the Western Conference Finals against the Spurs! If he can’t be happy with the River Walk, Alamo, Japanese tea garden, aquatic center and various theme parks, then perhaps he needs a lecture from Riley Curry about...

Warriors eagerly await next opponent

Before it hosts Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals Tuesday, Golden State must first learn which team it’ll face. Assistant coaches and advance scouts have closely monitored the series. Try to call out certain plays, tendencies of guys you might be guarding. The Clippers are without Blake Griffin, who sustained a season-ending toe injury in Game 3. Kerr’s return to the sideline still up in the air, the Warriors can take solace knowing that their players are getting healthier. Forward Matt Barnes, who has been sidelined since April 8 with a sprained right ankle, has been...

The art of basketball

My interview with Bay-Area painter — and Warriors’ fan — Joel Tesch. With perfectly executed game plans that could have come from Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, the Golden State Warriors took care of the Portland Trail Blazers in a clean, four-game sweep to advance to the second round of the NBA Playoffs. As with battle of any type, the path out of the first round was not without complications. Head Coach Steve Kerr was unable to coach in Games 3 and 4 due to illness, Kevin Durant, still rehabbing a calf strain, missed Games 2 and 3, and other players (Matt Barnes, Shaun Livingston and...
