The curious case of James Wiseman’s development

The curious case of James Wiseman’s development

Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/ Placed between the Warriors’ championship window and youth movement, Wiseman has a lot to prove during the upcoming season. James Wiseman presented arguably the largest point of contention within the Warriors organization — and the Warriors fandom — throughout last season. Playing 39 out of a possible 72 regular season games was uniquely paradoxical. Wiseman needed more reps on the floor, more experience against the increased level of competition the NBA presents. Yet, at the same time, there were moments where the 20-year-old rookie...

Why didn’t the Warriors sign another center?

Why didn’t the Warriors sign another center?

Photo by Jonathan Bachman/ Golden State looks poised to enter the year with just Kevon Looney and James Wiseman. The Golden State Warriors made a fair share of moves this offseason, and it’s hard to argue with any of them. The return of Andre Iguodala? Who could hate on that? Nemanja Bjelica? A proven quality stretch big who is a dream fit in the Dubs’ offense. Otto Porter Jr.? A low-risk addition that could be the steal of the offseason. And even if you wanted the Warriors to trade their draft picks in a deal that never materialized, it’s hard to quibble with...

The Golden State Warriors are scheduled to work out free agent point guard Isaiah Thomas sometime next week, according to HoopsHype.com.

A quick look at some Warriors odds

A quick look at some Warriors odds

Photo by Cato Cataldo/NBAE via How do the oddsmakers view the upcoming Warriors season? It is both exciting and terrifying to say that we’re about a month away from another season of Golden State Warriors basketball. The Dubs will kick things off on Oct. 19, when they visit the Los Angeles Lakers on the first night of the 2021-22 NBA season. And then we’ll be off. Once the ball is tipped for that game, the Warriors will be on a quest to do all sorts of things: win that game, win lots of games, make the playoffs, win the conference, win a championship. Along the...

Stephen Curry hosts charity golf event for his Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation

Photo by Jed Jacobsohn/ Curry raises money and the heart rates of his fans during charity event Golden State Warriors fans are well aware of Steph Curry’s greatness on the court, so nobody should be surprised by the greatness and generosity he radiates to the Bay Area community off the court. This past Sunday, Steph and Ayesha Curry hosted the Workday Charity Classic, a golf event where the proceeds go directly to the Currys’ Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation. Eat. Learn.

NBA sets vaccine and testing protocols for upcoming season

Photo by Ezra Shaw/ Players who are not vaccinated will be subject to frequent COVID-19 tests. It’s hard to believe, but we’re only a month away from the third NBA season that will be played, at least in part, during the coronavirus pandemic. I can’t decide if it seems like just yesterday or 25 years ago that the Golden State Warriors were going forward with a March 2020 game, against the desires of the city of San Francisco. And then just like that, the season — and world — were put on pause. It never resumed for the Warriors, who were stuck on 15 wins and...

John Wall and the Rockets expected to part ways

John Wall and the Rockets expected to part ways

Photo by Michael Reaves/ Could he land on a team relevant to the Warriors? It’s been quite a while since the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets were rivals, if you can call it that. There was a lot of bad blood between the Dubs and Rockets, and they repeatedly met in the postseason. That has all the makings of a rivalry. Then again, is it really a rivalry if the same team comes out on top every single time? That’s a story for another day, when I’m feeling spicy and want to take a shot or seven at the Rockets organization, James Harden, and Daryl Morey,...

When Kawhi Leonard returns, Wiggins Island will be waiting for him

When Kawhi Leonard returns, Wiggins Island will be waiting for him

Photo by Adam Pantozzi/NBAE via Andrew Wiggins’ individual defensive prowess was on full display last season, forcing Kawhi into 38% shooting and 7 turnovers when they matched up over three games. One of the talking points shrewdly optimistic Golden State Warriors fans discuss about their team’s prospects this season is the devastating injury woes their conference rivals have to overcome. You know, the exact same thing those same rivals were counting on working against the Dubs while the Warriors have been getting pimp slapped by the injury bug ever since the 2019...

Will Damion Lee have a big role?

Will Damion Lee have a big role?

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via The wing’s role is pretty undefined at the moment. The Golden State Warriors only have 13 players under guaranteed contracts for the upcoming season, but for all intents and purposes they have 14. Damion Lee, Mychal Mulder, and Gary Payton II are all sporting non-guaranteed contracts, but The Athletic’s Anthony Slater reported in August that the team has already penciled in Lee to the roster. It makes sense. Lee is a sharpshooting two guard, having dropped in 39.7% of his triples last year, and at 6’5” is long enough to play up a...

Juan Toscano-Anderson is the quintessential utility man for the Warriors

Juan Toscano-Anderson is the quintessential utility man for the Warriors

Photo by Noah Graham/NBAE via Toscano-Anderson’s versatility on both ends is what the Warriors will need this upcoming season. The allure of Juan Toscano-Anderson among Warriors fans may seem particularly odd from an outsider’s perspective. While he profiles as a prototypical wing — 6-foot-6 in height and 6-foot-10 in wingspan — nothing else is exceedingly remarkable about his natural talents: athletic, but not transcendently so; speedy, but far from the zero-to-sixty-in-three-seconds kind; strong and robust, but not the kind of freight-train power that can...

Connections to Oakland are everywhere in the 2021 NBA Hall of Fame class

Photo by Kevork Djansezian/ The Town is represented this weekend in Springfield, MA! The Bay Area is the soil from which hella legends have been born and/or nurtured, and Oakland a.k.a. “The Town” in particular is connected with more heroes than Marvel Comics. This weekend’s 2021 NBA Hall-of-Fame ceremony keeps that tradition going strong with several inductees with legit Oakland ties. Can you guess ‘em? Chris Webber started his career with the Warriors! I’ve emphatically reiterated what a big deal it is that the Warriors smoothly resigned Stephen Curry,...

Late week Warriors mailbag

Photo by Michael Gonzales/NBAE via Let’s answer Golden State’s most pressing questions. Another Golden State Warriors season is rapidly approaching, so it’s a good time to look at the pressing questions facing the team. You had them, and I answered them. To the best of my ability, at least. Do they start Jordan Poole?— bobbyholiday (@noiserawker) September 9, 2021 Nothing is finalized, but that is certainly the direction the team is leaning in. A month ago, Steve Kerr was asked by The Athletic’s Tim Kawakami about who would start in Klay Thompson’s...

Health permitting, are the Warriors as good as the Lakers?

Health permitting, are the Warriors as good as the Lakers?

Photo by Jim Poorten/NBAE via How do the Dubs stack up against the prohibitive Western Conference favorites? The Western Conference is loaded this season (what’s new?) yet most people seem to peg one team as the favorites: the Los Angeles Lakers. This is partially due to the fact that the Lakers are supremely talented; as odd as it sounds, they’re less than a year removed from being NBA champions. But it’s also due to the continued postseason shortcomings of the Utah Jazz, and severe injuries to Jamal Murray and Kawhi Leonard putting the Denver Nuggets and Los...

What a healthy Otto Porter Jr. can bring to the Warriors

What a healthy Otto Porter Jr. can bring to the Warriors

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports Porter can be a bargain acquisition for the Warriors, but that is heavily contingent on his ability to stay on the floor. It is often said that availability is a player’s best ability — a statement that applies heavily to someone like Otto Porter Jr. Porter played 80 games during the 2016-17 season, which was followed by 77 games in the 2017-18 season — both of which, to this day, remain his most and 2nd-most played games during the regular season, respectively. It is of no coincidence that both seasons happened to be the best...
