Rush had the best season of his career in 2011-12 and seemed poised to add to his upward trend in 2012-13, but his knee exploded in an ugly dunk-attempt landing just two games into the season. The Warriors rallied around the injury, uniting around the “4B-Rush” campaign to make the franchise’s first playoff berth since 2007. Familiar with the region already, it took Rush only a...

Golden State Warriors at the forefront of NBA data analysis

During a panel discussion at the Sports Analytics Innovation Summit last week in San Francisco, a member of the Chicago Bulls’ leadership stopped midstream in a conversation about his team’s advances and offered unprompted praise of the Warriors’ strides. “We always want to be pioneers, first-adopters, because we believe that having the most information gives us the best chance of making the right decisions,” said Warriors assistant general manager Kirk Lacob, who often spearheads the team’s analytics staff.
