Warriors sign Leandro Barbosa

The 31-year old Brazilian guard played 20 games with Phoenix last season. Both Golden State and he are hoping that durability is not an issue this season. Per ESPN's Marc Stein, the Warriors have signed veteran guard Leandro Barbosa: Barbosa has also drawn interest from Miami, of course, but Warriors have won the race for Brazil's PG even before this FIBA World Cup starts — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) August 28, 2014 Golden State, I'm told, is closing in on a deal to sign Brazilian star guard Leandro Barbosa— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) August 28, 2014 According to...

Brandon Rush, Shaun Livingston, and a defensive offseason

The Golden State Warriors didn't do much this offseason. After the splashy signing of Steve Kerr of head coach, they weren't able to pounce any big free agents, instead settling on Shaun Livingston, Brandon Rush, and a partially guaranteed contract to backup guard Aaron Craft. It started before last season. We just didn't listen. Or believe, for that matter. Mark Jackson strutted into Oracle Arena verbally berating and beating fans over the head that they'd play defense. Real, actual defense. The fans didn't know they were about to get sent back to the 1980s but no matter, the wins were...

Ethan Sherwood Strauss on why the Warriors kept Klay

The ESPN Truehoop writer takes a crack at the question we're all wondering about. I mentioned this in the comments to a previous article, but it's probably worth sharing on it's own. Today ESPN's Ethan Sherwood Strauss dove into the question of why the Warriors might prefer Klay Thompson to Kevin Love. The whole article is worth reading in its entirely, and Strauss apparently spoke with several members of the Warriors brass. Some key takeaways: In what sounds to me like a denial of the memes about which person in the front office wanted what, Strauss quotes Lacob as saying, "Only we know...

Season in Review: How Strong are Stephen Curry's Shoulders?

The Golden State Warriors, contrary to popular belief, struggled from the beginning of the season until the end. Ranked near the middle of the pack despite what many believed as a team with explosive offensive pieces, it took a Herculean effort from Stephen Curry to barely keep them alive in games night in and night out. Before each game, David Lee and Stephen Curry high-five and meet at center court before turning and sprinting to the end of the baseline area, slapping the stanchion, and running back onto the hardwood all before the first tip. This signifies that the two captains are in...

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson's impact on Team USA

Team USA travel to Madison Square Garden to take on Team Dominican Republic at 4 PM PST on NBA TV. Here are thoughts on how the two Golden State Warrior representatives fit on the team. I am a huge proponent of just doing weird things with the construction and scheme of this year's edition of Team USA. Without the actual best of the NBA playing, there's a lot more wiggle room to do anything. There's a bit of a what-do-we-have-to-lose mindset on a team without its two best scorers, inside and out (Kevin Love and Kevin Durant). To compound that, the loss of the lockdown perimeter defense on...

Team USA vs. Brazil open thread: Warriors stars Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson back in action

Warriors stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are back in action tonight as Team USA faces Brazil. It's game time: Watch Team USA vs. Brazil LIVE on ESPNEWS until LLWS ends on ESPN. — NBA.com (@NBAcom) August 17, 2014 Without stars Kevin Durant and Paul George, Team USA will be looking for offense from other players. Could the Splash Brothers be part of the solution? With Curry getting the start and Thompson looking to establish himself in the rotation off the bench, there's plenty for Warriors fans to watch. For more of a preview, check out SB Nation's preview. This is your open...

Warriors Schedule Announced: Where Golden State may thrive, struggle in 2014-2015

Analyzing the 2014-2015 schedule for the Warriors, notable matchups, and when and where Golden State might have a relatively simple or difficult time picking up victories. Can the Warriors, with a completely new coaching staff and solid core in place, under intense pressure -- both internal and external -- improve upon last year's 51-win campaign? The Warriors are slated to appear in a franchise-record 19 national television broadcasts split among ABC (1), ESPN (9), and TNT (9), the sixth-most out of all NBA teams. (Interestingly, just five of those broadcasts feature the Warriors away...

Where will the Golden State Warriors stand in a year from now?

Tomorrow the SB Nation-NBA network will be holding its first theme day of the 2014 NBA offseason by discussing where each team will be a year from now. We begin by asking you: where will the Golden State Warriors be a year from now? We are now deep into that part of the NBA offseason where there's almost nothing going on, except for players teasing us with performances at summer pro-ams and waiting for both the Kevin Love and Donald Sterling sagas to come to an end. If those don't satisfy your hunger for NBA basketball, the SB Nation-NBA network is starting up its rotation of theme days...

Basketball Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony: A tribute to Sarunas Marciulionis

Although Sarunas Marciulionis was enshrined into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame as a trail blazer and stereotype-busting international basketball player, Warriors fans will always remember him fondly for his role as a fearless sixth man during one of the best periods in the franchise's post-championship era (highlight video via NBA).

Scattered thoughts on Steve Kerr and Brian Scalabrine comments

Steve Kerr talked about starting Harrison Barnes over Andre Iguodala. Brian Scalabrine continued his public flogging of Mark Jackson and management. I have words on this. We are in the midst of the most boring time in basketball world. The Zach Lowes of the sporting world are taking a long vacation, ready to take a bit of a reprieve from this warped universe after the long, drawn-out LeBron James saga. Since I am not creative enough to write fan fiction, smart enough to do cutesy historical pieces, or have the time to constantly update with little Golden State Warriors nuggets, I'm...

NBA trade rumor: Have the Golden State Warriors made a mistake by not doing all that they could to get Kevin Love?

With Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reporting this morning that Kevin Love is headed to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group "can’t justify passing up the opportunity for having two of the best 15 players in the NBA on your team" With reality settling in that Kevin Love is headed to Cavaliers, it's hard not to think Warriors are making a mistake http://t.co/tyc4ahFw2S — Marcus Thompson (@ThompsonScribe) August 7, 2014 Marcus Thompson's tweet accompanying his article about the Golden State Warriors missing out on Kevin Love pretty much sums up his...

Dime Magazine's Q&A with Draymond Green: His relationship with Steve Kerr and the offseason

Kris Habbas of Bright Side of the Sun did a Q&A with Draymond Green for Dime Magazine and shared some of his quotes with Golden State of Mind. After Kris Habbas and I discussed the value of USA Basketball camp for Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green on the BS of the Suns podcast two weeks ago, he got in touch to say that he was interviewing Green for a Dime Magazine article and asked if I had any questions. With the help of the GSoM staff, I sent Kris a bunch of questions that he refined a bit and whittled down to a few manageable ones. The Q&A was posted at Dime Magazine today, but the...
