Things We Love About The Warriors: Integrity

Things We Love About The Warriors: Integrity

Things We Love About The Warriors is a weekly summer series focusing on traits we admire about the team or individual players that defy the boundaries of the court. Anyone would be hard-pressed to discuss the Golden State Warriors without including terms such as “class act,” “A+ organization” or “high character.” But the organization did not arrive at this reputation by happenstance. It gained it by design. In his 2014-15 MVP speech, Stephen Curry said: To the Warriors organization: Joe, Peter, Rick, Bob, all of your staff in the front office, everybody that works upstairs in...

2017 NBA Draft: Live podcast reactions that we recorded as the draft happened

2017 NBA Draft: Live podcast reactions that we recorded as the draft happened

Ahhh, we have fun. Welcome back to Golden State of Mindcast! We haven’t had a chance to gloat and crow about the fact that the Golden State Warriors are CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD, but I promise we’ll get to that. Instead, Ivan, Nate, and I sat down to live-podcast-blog (however you would say that) the NBA Draft which transpired last night. It was a fun thing, and we are planning on maybe doing more of these for regular season games or whatever next season. I mean, what’s better than hanging out with your friends, drinking a nice cold beverage, and talking about sports? Anyways, enjoy....

2017 NBA Draft: Fultz trusts ‘The Process,’ Ball goes to Lakers, Warriors get in on action

2017 NBA Draft: Fultz trusts ‘The Process,’ Ball goes to Lakers, Warriors get in on action

What a night! The NBA Draft is one of the best nights of the year. I’ve enjoyed it from afar, and I’ve enjoyed it up close and personal. It’s a strange meeting of corporate branding, nervous teenagers, proud family members, and stupid fan costumes. All in all, it’s a heck of a time. After last year’s seemingly weak draft class, we’ve all been brimming with excitement, waiting for Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball, Josh Jackson, et al to walk the walk and shake Adam Silver’s hand. It’s been a long year full of meaningless prognostications, endless mock drafts, and quite a few...

Get to know the Warriors’ new rookie: Pac-12 Defensive player of the year, Jordan Bell

Get to know the Warriors’ new rookie: Pac-12 Defensive player of the year, Jordan Bell

Warriors pull pick out of nowhere (again!) As Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers said prior to the draft, the Warriors were “acting like they had a pick” in this year’s draft. Joe Lacob and company laid out $3.5 (of the maximum allowable $3.6) million in order to pick up Jordan Bell with the 38th pick in the draft (from the Chicago Bulls). Coming in, the Warriors said that they were just planning to get the best player available, as they had done in the past: "Our thought on that is whoever the best player available is. When we drafted McCaw, we actually didn't think he...

Bulls trade No. 38 overall pick Jordan Bell to Golden State Warriors

The Chicago Bulls selected Jordan Bell with the 38th pick, then flipped him to the Golden State Warriors for cash. Jordan Bell was almost a member of the Chicago Bulls. Instead, the front office decided to send him out west to the reigning champion Golden State Warriors. A sleeper pick. For cash.

NBA Draft Result: Warriors select Jordan Bell

The Warriors found their way into the draft and found more talent to work with. The Golden State Warriors acquired a second round pick in the 2017 NBA Draft from the Chicago Bulls and have made their pick: Jordan Bell from the University of Oregon. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the Warriors purchased the pick from the Bulls for a bunch of cash — exactly the kind of aggression we've come to expect from owner Joe Lacob. Sources: Golden State acquired Jordan Bell from the Bulls for cash. A lot of it. https://t.co/2QXpmuJIyb— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) June...

NBA Draft 2017: Warriors enter second round without a pick

NBA Draft 2017: Warriors enter second round without a pick

The NBA Draft is half over and the Warriors have yet to make a move. The Golden State Warriors have been rumored to have interest in buying a second round pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, but there have been no deals reported to this point. And for some reason, Adrian Wojnarowski has been a bit too quiet. Maybe he’s busy checking sources on a blockbuster deal of Kevon Looney and James Michael McAdoo for Kristaps Porzingis. Who knows. Many of the guys that we’ve already discussed as value picks are still on the board for the Warriors so you figure there’s still time for them to make a...

2017 NBA Draft Open Thread: Will the Warriors buy back into the draft?

2017 NBA Draft Open Thread: Will the Warriors buy back into the draft?

It’s happened before and could happen again. The Golden State Warriors do not currently have a pick in the 2017 NBA draft. That being said, we’ve seen them buy back into the draft as recently as last year, when they sent cash to the Milwaukee Bucks for the rights to (future Hall of Famer, future All-Star, and future MVP) Pat McCaw. If there’s one thing we’ve all learned over the past few years, it’s that no matter what, we should TRUST BOB MYERS. If you missed it, Nate just published a great primer on why we should watch the draft, and who the potential buy-in targets could be...

2017 NBA Draft: How and why to watch even though the Warriors don’t have a pick

2017 NBA Draft: How and why to watch even though the Warriors don’t have a pick

The 2017 NBA Draft begins tonight at 4 p.m. PST on ESPN and we’re going to watch even though the Warriors don’t have a pick. If you’re sick of reading horrible basketball takes on Twitter and really just like watching other teams in full-blown panic mode, then perhaps you’ll join me in my excitement about the 2017 NBA Draft tonight. Although the stakes aren't nearly as high as the good ol’ days when we were forced to pin all our hopes and dreams on whether Anthony Randolph would be Our Savior, this draft is important for the exact opposite reason. The Warriors have a core of...

By not trading for Dwight Howard, the Warriors ended up eradicating his usefulness in the league

By not trading for Dwight Howard, the Warriors ended up eradicating his usefulness in the league

I’m so very glad the Warriors never traded Klay Thompson for Dwight Howard. NBA frenzy season is upon us. Trades are going down right and left. One barely heralded piece of the puzzle? Dwight Howard got traded to Charlotte. Lol. Remember when Dwight Howard was good? Or, rather, remember when he was playing in a league where he could actually contribute to a good team? Let’s rewind a bit. In the summer of 2013, Dwight Howard hit the free agency market. He only took meetings with five teams: The Lakers, Mavericks, Houston Rockets, Atlanta Hawks, and Warriors. He was the hottest free...

NBA Free Agent Rumors: Could Vince Carter become a Warrior?

NBA Free Agent Rumors: Could Vince Carter become a Warrior?

We’ve seen other veterans come to the Bay to play on the best team in the league. Is Vince Carter next? The Warriors are unquestionably at the top of the mountain right now. Not only are they fresh off a championship, a parade, and a club full of giant champagne bottles, and not only are they witnessing their greatest rival — the Cleveland Cavaliers — seemingly tear themselves apart from within, but they know now that many of the NBA’s great veteran players will willingly come play for them for minimal money just to be a part of an historic team. Last year, David West — who had...

Never forget, the Warriors blew a 3-1 meme

Never forget, the Warriors blew a 3-1 meme

The Warriors killed a joke and set the NBA on high alert - let’s enjoy that for a second It was everywhere I looked. “The Warriors blew a 3-1 lead.” Fresh off one of the most painful losses of my basketball life, I avoided the internet as much as I could after the 2016 Finals. It was summer time, so it was (I thought) fairly easy to disengage… And yet, still, the meme crept into my media and not just for a minute either. This meme brought a big roller suitcase with four tiny pivoting wheels and was here to stay. It wasn’t just the internet trolls – as recently as January of...

The Warriors ruined the NBA by inducing everyone to panic trade in a frenzy

The Warriors ruined the NBA by inducing everyone to panic trade in a frenzy

The NBA is weird right now. We are one day out from the 2017 NBA Draft. Already, there has been a slew of activity. Trades are either being executed or rumored all across this great swath of NBA landscape. Players are shaking their shaved heads in the general direction of owners who are making strange decisions wrought in real time Comic Sans. in other words, things are weird right now. A small sampling: The Lakers gave up on 21-year-old D’Angello Russell, dumping him alongside Timofey Mozgov to the Nets in exchange for Brook Lopez (on an expiring contract) and a low first round pick...

NBA Draft: Who are sleepers the Warriors should target in the second round?

NBA Draft: Who are sleepers the Warriors should target in the second round?

The Warriors don’t currently have a pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, but they’ve declared their intentions to buy one if the opportunity presents itself. So who might be a prospect to keep an eye on? As reported by Anthony Slater of the Bay Area News Group yesterday, Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers is actively preparing for the 2017 NBA Draft despite not currently possessing a pick. With the Warriors expecting to shell out a ton of money to keep their championship core intact (as outlined by Patrick Murray in a FanPost), it’s obvious that they need to begin finding more...

Utah Jazz reportedly in the mix for Warriors’ Andre Iguodala

With or without Gordon Hayward, the Utah Jazz need to make moves to compete with the Golden State Warriors. Signing Andre Iguodala may be part of the plan.

Warriors news: Andre Iguodala will ‘consider’ NBA free agent offers elsewhere

Warriors news: Andre Iguodala will ‘consider’ NBA free agent offers elsewhere

After Tim Kawakami reported that Andre Iguodala will likely return, Shams Charania reports that he will be looking at other offers. Andre Iguodala is likely to draw interest during free agency this summer and he’s reportedly willing to ‘consider’ offers from other teams, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical. Iguodala is an unrestricted free agent this summer and the market could apparently yield a contract in the $20 million range for the 2017 Sixth Man of the Year candidate. Many teams are expected to pursue discussions with Iguodala, including the Warriors, Utah Jazz, Los...

NBA Trade News: 29 other teams scramble to be competitive in the Warriors’ league

Every off-season move, in a way, can be traced to the Warriors dominance. For basketball fans, this is one of the most exciting times of the year. It’s a time full of hope, a time for dreaming. The NBA draft is right around the corner, and this year’s crop of prospects is one of the most talented and deepest in a long time. I wouldn’t be surprised if this turns out — down the road — to be the most complete draft since 2003, when LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and Carmelo Anthony all came into the league. (Side Note: There’s no way that was 14 frickin years ago, right?!...

Is Curry under-appreciated again?

Is Curry under-appreciated again?

Yes. Kerr is the nervous system, Curry is the brain, Green the heart, Durant the muscle, Klay the inspiration, and Iguodala the conscience. There’s been some buzz recently about Steve Kerr saying Kevin Durant is a top 2 basketball player and Stephen Curry isn’t in the running. On top of Kevin Durant winning the Finals MVP and Kerr not giving Stephen Curry air time in his championship parade speech, some people are feeling that Curry is getting under-appreciated. It’s probably true. To be fair, there’s just a lot more you can do on defense as a 7-foot powerhouse like Durant or a...
