Ranking the Warriors' assets, Part 3: Brandon Rush (and voting for the third cut)

The mighty Golden State of Mind community will once again rank the value of the team's assets by voting, from worst to first, until only the best remains. As always, thank you for participating. At the risk of being redundant, bear with me while I explain the exercise to any of our newer members or folks that may have missed the previous installments. Imagine the NBA was having an expansion draft, and the Warriors were able to "protect" their entire team from being taken by a new expansion organization, except for one player. Whoever is left unprotected will be selected in this...

Warriors would give Festus Ezeli a multi-year extension at the right price

Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders has the latest on Festus Ezeli extension talks. As some early extension candidates have already reached new deals this offseason, the Golden State Warriors must make a couple of decisions for the future. Via Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders, the Golden State Warriors have had talks with Festus Ezeli on a contract extension. There is a deal to be had here if Ezeli wants it, as sources near the situation say the Warriors would do a multi-year extension at the right price. But if Ezeli wants to maximize his earnings, it may not happen this summer and it...

How much is Harrison Barnes worth to the Warriors?

The details are out on Michael Kidd-Gilchrist's new contract, and the bar has been set. How much is Barnes about to make in his new contract with the Warriors, and can they afford to keep him? As a talent like Harrison Barnes approaches restricted free agency, we gauge his potential value on a few factors: First, his value to the team. Second, his relative value around the league compared to similar players at similar ages. And third, the general market value as the salary cap starts to rise. Barnes is currently making a paltry $3.8M while finishing up his rookie contract, and is set for a...

Draymond Green photobombs Stephen Curry in the NBA 2K16 trailer

The Golden State Warriors are heavily featured in the trailer for NBA 2K16 for obvious reasons. But besides being the reigning NBA Champions, the Warriors have a ton of personality that can be conveyed in the video game. We've even got Draymond Green photobombing a postgame interview of Stephen Curry!

Steph Curry gets down to "I'm Turnt" at the Lecrae concert

Stephen Curry was just chilling at the Lecrae rap concert in Oakland, CA over the weekend when he was invited up on stage to help Lecrae the get crowd "turnt." Steph was obviously a big hit with the crowd, and he also showed us where Riley gets some of those dance moves! (Because having more Steph Curry GIFs is important!) And here's the full video for the whole experience:

Asking GSoM: How can we make the FanPosts and FanShots sections more active?

The FanPost and FanShot sections exist for you, the GSoM community, to share your ideas and take ownership of the conversation at the site. But we'd like to make those sections more active and would love your feedback on how to make that happen. Way back in May we had the beginnings of a discussion in the comments of an article about how to re-invigorate the FanPost/Shot section that we tabled until the offseason when we'd all have clearer heads after the Golden State Warriors' playoff run was complete. Now that it is in fact summertime and the living is easy since Curry's dancin' and the...

The uneventful serenity of the perfect offseason

The Golden State Warriors are having the best offseason ever. I have time to write so I think I might as well put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard. I'm sitting here at the local coffee shop, messenger bag draped over the left shoulder, just off of work, and for the first time in two weeks, signing into my Golden State of Mind account. "You need to write something, it doesn't matter what it is. Take a small transaction, extrapolate it into larger proportions, blow it up the asses of a fanbase thirsting for news that'll saturate a thirst just quenched by a trophy lifted not long ago. But...

Warriors Sign Sharpshooting Jarell Eddie to Camp Deal

The Warriors have started bringing in bodies in preparation for camp. Can Eddie push the current rotation? The Warriors signed D-League standout Jarrell Eddie to a camp deal on Friday (via Hoopsrumors, reporting from RealGM). Eddie comes to camp as a sharpshooting Small Forward who played his college ball at Virgina Tech. He went undrafted but ended up bouncing between the Hawks on a ten-day contract and with the Spurs D-League affiliate. He did shoot 45.2% (127-281) from behind the arc, but didn't translate this into more time with he main squads. He did shoot well in summer league,...

2015 GSoM Night: This time, we're #1!

The people have spoken and we heard you loud and clear. Back by popular demand, it's Golden State of Mind night at the Roaracle! March 23, 2007 The Golden State Warriors (33-37) battled the Washington Wizards (37-30) at Oracle arena in what seemed to be just another high scoring regular season affair. The Warriors, just two months after acquiring Stephen Jackson and Al Harrington from the Indiana Pacers, hadn't made the postseason since the '93-'94 season. It didn't matter to the Warriors' most faithful fans. Led by GSoM founder Atma Brother ONE, DJ Fuzzy Logic, Fantasy Junkie, Hash,...

Ranking the Warriors' assets, Part 2: Chris Babb (and voting for the second cut)

The mighty Golden State of Mind community will once again rank the value of the team's assets by voting, from worst to first, until only the best remains. First of all, thank you all for participating. I've always felt that Golden State of Mind was a collection of the the most knowledgeable fans in the NBA, and that I could learn more about basketball here than anywhere else. Furthermore, it's not the things that we agree about that make this an excellent source for basketball knowledge. Quite the opposite, really. It's the disagreements that make this place special, giving us valid...

Video: Bogut, playing with back pain, comes up with an enormous block vs. New Zealand

Led by a gritty performance from Andrew Bogut, who was playing with "significant" back pain, the Australia Boomers are headed to Rio 2016. Will his back become a chronic issue?

2014-15 Warriors Season Review: Andrew Bogut and the case of the Ever Shrinking Big Man

Andrew Bogut, once thought of as "the missing piece" to a championship team, ended up not necessarily being the key to the Warriors winning the 2015 NBA Finals. How did this happen? The Warriors of the early 2000's were soft. Nelly Ball and "We Believe" had an obvious hole in the middle of our frontcourt — our franchise center was off riding on ski boats and partying during the summers (oh, how we miss you Andres Biedrins) instead of learning to shoot free throws. Traditional NBA teams would come in and dominate the Warriors on the boards and in the post, on their way to historic nights...

BREAKING NEWS: Andrew Bogut is not impressed by your Haka war dance

If the headline hasn't said it all, well, where are we? Andrew Bogut, man amongst men, does not give a flying f--- about your Haka war dance. Let us list the things that impress Andrew Bogut more than this Haka war dance: 1.) Cheese. Literally, any type of cheese. Preferably something nice and sharp, like a nice sharp cheddar or something. 2.) Puppies. I mean, hey, puppies are pretty goddamn impressive. 3.) That dance in that, what was it called? You know, where they dance on the river? Or, wait, shit, no -- Riverdance. Right. That's the one. Riverdance impresses him more than this...

Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli: The Future of the Golden State Warriors

Besides Draymond Green and the Splash Brothers, the Warriors' long-term success will hinge on the growth and development of Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli. The Golden State Warriors have the foundational pieces to compete for a championship for at least the next half decade. With two fifths of the Warriors' starting lineup locked up into the 2018-19 season and superstar Stephen Curry set to secure a long-term deal with the squad in the summer of 2017, the only thing left is extending the contracts of Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli. As members of the 2012 NBA Draft class, Barnes and...

Following basketball and life in an emoji-filled world

Emojis have helped shape many modern-day events, but distilling meaning into wordless images is as old as humanity. Two days ago, Hillary Clinton tweeted out the following: How does your student loan debt make you feel? Tell us in 3 emojis or less. — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 12, 2015 Our country currently has around forty million people dealing with student loan debt, seven million of whom have defaulted on their loans. Forget the 40 million, as that number is almost beyond comprehension. Let's talk about seven million. Imagine Los Angeles, with its sprawling...

Draymond Green is living the life of the rich and famous

If you forgot, the Golden State Warriors re-signed Draymond Green to a 5-year/$85 million contract back in July. Draymond is now enjoying the fruits of all his many labors, and Jermaine O'Neal was available to give us a behind-the-scenes look.

The Warriors are the New Bad Boys Pistons

Or about as close to them as you'll get in this day and age. Golden State's roster and statistical profile matches up well with the late-eighties Pistons squads. These Golden State Warriors are a weird bunch: they've been accused of flipping the NBA world on its head because of jump shooting (didn't some short guy already invent that back in the 1930s?), even though their hoops-DNA is remarkably familiar. And even though they played without a traditional center at times to smartly exploit extreme match-up advantages (if your opponent has no depth, isn't running more kind of common sense?),...
