For Warriors depth isn't an issue

For Warriors depth isn't an issue

Do the Warriors still have "Strength in Numbers"? We take a look at the unfounded criticism of the Warriors’ depth. "Sure they added Durant but they sacrificed their depth." This is something you probably heard a coworker say at the beginning of the season, and if you spend any time on social media you undoubtedly saw something similar on there from various fans and bloggers. Were they right? I'm not so sure. By the numbers First of all let's compare the top eight bench units in +/- this season to their respective numbers from last season. Not only does the Warriors’ bench boast...

Up jumps the Boogie; Cousins traded to New Orleans

Up jumps the Boogie; Cousins traded to New Orleans

With DeMarcus Cousins being traded to New Orleans does this change the NBA landscape? Do the Warriors need to adjust? I woke up to a message from a friend that simply read; "Cousins and Davis on the same team... holy shit!" Initially I figured he was messaging me an update about his adventures on NBA 2K17; after recently taking control of the Memphis Grizzlies in the general manager mode I thought he had made some out-of-this-world fantasy type trade. Nope. It's real. DeMarcus Cousins is now a pelican — and not in some weird shape shifting way. He has officially been traded to the New...

Anthony Davis, West All-Stars win 192-182 as Cousins might be traded from Kings

Anthony Davis, West All-Stars win 192-182 as Cousins might be traded from Kings

Future Warrior Anthony Davis put on a show in New Orleans. Many people joke that Anthony Davis will someday become a member of the Golden State Warriors. Perhaps we’ll see him in the blue and gold, playing under the $BILLION lights of the Chase Center, but for now the young prodigy is living it up in New Orleans. The 23 year old superstar led the West All-Stars to a 192-182 victory, while also setting a new record for points scored in an All-Star game (surpassing Wilt Chamberlain) by scoring 52 points to go along with 10 rebounds. Th final score seemed ... obtuse. And not like,...

2017 NBA All-Star highlights: Steph buries head in sand to avoid getting posterized by Giannis

2017 NBA All-Star highlights: Steph buries head in sand to avoid getting posterized by Giannis

This was hilarious. The NBA All-Star game is in full swing, with dumb dunks, windmill flights of fancy, and zero defense. Stephen Curry, who started for the West team, wanted no part of this Giannis Antetokounmpo dunk. Having recently been posterized by him already, Curry saw Giannis barreling down the court and hit the deck, burying his head in the sand. #StephenCurry making sure he doesn't end up on a #Giannis poster #NBAAllstar pic.twitter.com/0X9l3r4KDd— NBA on TNT (@NBAonTNT) February 20, 2017 Lol, Steph. So far in this game, I would give the MVP award to either Giannis or...

2017 NBA All-Star Game: Please let Kevin Durant, Warriors play alongside Russell Westbrook

2017 NBA All-Star Game: Please let Kevin Durant, Warriors play alongside Russell Westbrook

The NBA All-Star will begin today at 5 p.m. PST. As a child growing up and waiting for Billy Owens to transform himself into what Draymond Green would eventually become, I’m not sure I could have ever imagined that the GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS would have four All-Stars playing in one game. In fact, had you told me at that time that the Warriors would have four All-Star selections in four consecutive years I probably would’ve laughed and said it would was more likely that Keith Jennings would dunk on Hakeem Olajuwon in the playoffs. But now, here we are with the Warriors being represented...

2017 NBA All-Star Weekend: Kerr mic’d up, Durant talks Westbrook, more

2017 NBA All-Star Weekend: Kerr mic’d up, Durant talks Westbrook, more

Link Fest! Here’s all the goings-on at All-Star Weekend in one place! Disclaimer: Dikembe Mutombo was not impressed. NBA All-Star Weekend is here. So much is happening — and people have been posting so many Fanshots — that I decided to combine them all in one place. So far, Klay Thompson failed to retain his 3-point contest crown, Aaron Gordon used a frickin drone in the dunk contest (spoiler alert: it was super lame ... more on this in a second), and overall Saturday night at the festivities was a bit boring. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t drama elsewhere amidst the...

Preview & Odds: All Star Three-Point Contest

Preview & Odds: All Star Three-Point Contest

Klay Thompson is back to defend his title. All Star Weekend is upon us and Saturday night is oftentimes more entertaining than the All Star Game itself. We have the skills contest, the dunk contest and the three-point contest. The latter of which has been particularly fun for Warriors fans over the last couple of years. As you might recall, the last two years have featured Splash Brother vs. Splash Brother as first Stephen Curry took the crown in 2015 with a ridiculous 27 points in the final round: This was followed by Klay Thompson dethroning him last year in superb fashion, not missing...

2017 NBA All-Star Weekend: Prop bets, storylines, and more

Four Warriors will represent the Bay in New Orleans this weekend. The Golden State Warriors, at 47-9, currently sit atop the NBA landscape, surveying the carnage from afar. Even though they would need to win 26 straight games going away to match their NBA-best 73-9 record from a year ago, you just get the sense that this team is finally figuring out how best to utilize the world-changing talents of their four best players, all of whom are going to New Orleans this weekend. Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Stephen Curry, and Kevin Durant represent the creme de la creme of the NBA. Outside of...

Kevin Durant redraws the lines in Nike’s new powerful “Equality” campaign

Kevin Durant redraws the lines in Nike’s new powerful “Equality” campaign

He is joined by fellow NBA superstar LeBron James as well as top-tier athletes from other sports. Against a somber, mostly urban, black-and-white setting, Warriors superstar Kevin Durant joins other star athletes to help Nike issue a powerful message: “Equality should have no boundaries.” Narrator Michael B. Jordan, star of the movies Creed and Fruitvale Station, asks: “Is this the land history promised?” Sure, the question is rhetorical, but it is certainly one worth answering. The answer would be, “NO” — and a hard one at that. “The ball should bounce the same for...

Warriors own NBA’s 3rd-most valuable brand at $2.6B

Warriors own NBA’s 3rd-most valuable brand at $2.6B

Forbes released their annual sports franchise value rankings this week, and the Warriors have risen to the top three of the NBA, behind only the Lakers and Knicks. The Golden State Warriors have the third-most valuable brand in the NBA, according to Forbes’ 2017 NBA team valuations. At $2.6 billion, the franchise has increased in value by thirty-seven percent from just last season, a league-best increase. This season marks the first time the franchise has ranked in the top three; only the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers, at $3.3 billion and $3 billion, respectively, have more...

JaVale McGee continues to excel in starting role

JaVale McGee continues to excel in starting role

The nine-year NBA veteran is quietly putting together the most efficient season of his career. OAKLAND, Calif. — JaVale McGee is a pretty cool dude. There is really no disputing that. While rocking a black #JUGLIFE dad hat — with a brand new, unopened drone in his hand — the nine-year veteran quietly answered questions outside the Warriors’ locker room following the team’s 109-86 beatdown of the Kings. He wasn’t asked about the clean water well that his foundation helped build in Uganda, which brings fresh water to over 500 school children. Nor was he asked about his love for...

Explain One Play: Dubs Double DeMarcus, Durant Dunks

Explain One Play: Dubs Double DeMarcus, Durant Dunks

The W’s double-teamed Cousins and turned defense to offense, and the Kings couldn’t make them pay in the Feb 15th game. The Warriors defense has three key features. First, almost everyone on the roster can reliably switch assignments when screened (except for Stephen Curry, JaVale McGee, and Zaza Pachulia). Second, for players who can drive to the rim one-on-one, the Dubs often play a goalie, sometimes called a strong-side overload, or a shadow. This, for only the most dominant players in a groove, the Warriors double-team them and scramble to recover. Today, DeMarcus Cousins started...

Draymond Green gets ejected for freaking out, Warriors handle Kings anyway (109-86)

Draymond Green gets ejected for freaking out, Warriors handle Kings anyway (109-86)

After scoring only 47 points in the first half, Golden State goes for 43 points in the third quarter. I’m not saying the Golden State Warriors don’t need Draymond Green, but they didn’t need him tonight. Without Green, the Warriors managed to turn a three point halftime deficit into a 24 point lead at the end of the the third quarter. They did so on the strength of a huge 28-2 run in the middle of the third quarter — finishing that quarter with a 42-15 advantage — and that was pretty much the game. The Warriors displayed their dominance on both ends, allowing no Sacramento...

Kings 86, Warriors 109: Golden State dismantles the Kings in the 3rd

Kings 86, Warriors 109: Golden State dismantles the Kings in the 3rd

The Kings couldn’t recover from an awful third quarter The Sacramento Kings put together a fun, competitive first half against the Golden State Warriors, but were unable to recover from a third quarter barrage and eventually lost 109-86. The Kings actually led at the half 50-47 after a fiery second quarter than saw Draymond Green get ejected after two quick technical fouls. For a brief moment, there was hope. But hope is a stupid thing, and the Warriors absolutely decimated the Kings in the third quarter to the tune of 42-15. The Kings were never close again. DeMarcus Cousins started the...

Klay Thompson went through his usual pre-game warm up routine and will start for Golden State. Tonight’s game will be the final game before heading into the NBA All-Star break.

Mid-season standings for NBA’s top awards

The All-Star break is a natural opportunity to look at players in the running for the league’s primary awards, and whether any Warriors have a shot at winning personal hardware. There are seven primary NBA awards for basketball-related activities, and we’ll run through them all — discussing players on other teams who are in the race, Warriors who are close to being in the race, and the exceptional player currently holding the lead. Luckily for us, the star-studded Golden State Warriors are very well-represented across the board. Executive of the Year Who’s in the race? Bob Myers...

Warriors’ youngsters get chance shine in loss to Nuggets

Warriors’ youngsters get chance shine in loss to Nuggets

In the midst of a blowout, the young Warriors show flashes of promise. In the 1960s, Laurence Olivier was headlining a production of Strindberg’s The Dance of Death when he was struck with an appendicitis, forcing his understudy to take center stage. The understudy’s name — Anthony Hopkins. As many of you know, Hopkins would go on to become one of the world’s greatest actors. So the story goes, as circumstance opens opportunity for the up and coming, stars and careers are born. Monday night’s walloping of the Golden State Warriors by the Denver Nuggets wasn’t a night of destiny...

Short-handed Warriors crushed by Nuggets, 132-110

Short-handed Warriors crushed by Nuggets, 132-110

Denver stole whatever three-point mojo Stephen Curry had and was not very polite about it. The Starters It wasn’t a boat-race because English (kudos, Dan Dibley). But the Golden State Warriors got motor boated tonight, BIGLY. Seven different Denver Nuggets players hit a 3-point shot in the first 14 minutes of game time as Denver rolled the Warriors on the offensive end. And the threes would not stop there. Denver would finish an NBA all-time best 24-of-40 from three point range (60%, despite some late three-point chucking for the record). The Warriors played well offensively, but the...
