Zaza Pachulia is low-key the coolest Warrior

Zaza Pachulia is low-key the coolest Warrior

The first member of the 2016-17 championship team to receive Presidential recognition is also a National hero While we wait to see if the Golden State Warriors will get invited to the White House, the people of Zaza Pachulia’s homeland of Georgia wasted no time in honoring their National hero. It’s fitting, really. I was just going to write an update about this, but since it’s the offseason, I would like to also take this opportunity to foster a little attention on one of the more overlooked superstars of the NBA. The Zaza Pachulia rule I’m probably not alone in that I first...

Warriors sign Georges Niang to a one-year, partially guaranteed deal

Warriors sign Georges Niang to a one-year, partially guaranteed deal

Drafted last season by the Pacers, he spent most of his time in the G League last season With all of the major (and minor) pieces in place, the Warriors continue to flesh out the deepest parts of their roster leading up to the season opener on October 17th. Today, news broke that they have signed AP All-American Second Team and All-Big 12 First Team player, Georges Niang. Niang spent most of last season riding the bench with the Indiana Pacers, floating between their G League affiliate and the NBA. As they did with Patrick McCaw, the Warriors somehow managed to scoop up a highly touted...

NBA 2017-18 Schedule released - Warriors’ full schedule is here!

NBA 2017-18 Schedule released - Warriors’ full schedule is here!

Less back-to-backs, and few of those will be nationally televised. The league is working to reduce travel fatigue. The NBA teased a portion of the opening week schedule earlier, so we already knew that the Golden State Warriors will open the season when they host the Houston Rockets on October 17th. And now, we just got our first look at the full schedule. Thanks to the internet, you can find the entire schedule already on NBA.com here. There’s a lot to take in, but the always reliable Anthony Slater has identified the longest road trip: Warriors longest road trip is 6 games-at...

Things We Love About The Warriors: Eclectic and diverse assembly of individuals

Everyone knows the well-rounded skills of Golden State players on the court. But the diverse off-court interests of members of the organization contribute to a fun and rewarding working environment. Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr said during his Warriors Victory Parade speech that General Manager Bob Myers is regularly effusive about how much enjoys going to work each day, apparently enjoying everyone he works with within the organization and looks forward to seeing them every day. Mic drop. How many people can say that about their workplaces? More importantly, what makes the Warriors...

Who would be on the Warriors’ all-time starting five?

Who would be on the Warriors’ all-time starting five?

Steph Curry and Wilt Chamberlain seem to be the only locks. Who else deserves to make the cut? Recently, the parent company SB Nation had an interesting thought. Namely, who would make your favorite team’s all-time starting five? So, we put the questions to y’all, and you didn’t disappoint. As a fun mind game — and as a way to think about something other than our country hurtling into darkness — let’s keep the conversation going here. NBA 2K18 is releasing All-Time teams this year.What's your favorite team's all-time starting 5?— SB Nation NBA (@SBNationNBA) August 11,...

NBA 2017 Schedule Release Rumor: Warriors road games against Clippers leaked

In addition to all the news about the nationally televised games yesterday, the folks at Clips Nation uncovered a couple of the Warriors games at Staples. Yesterday, we learned some preliminary details about the Golden State Warriors’ schedule for the 2017-18 NBA season. In addition to opening the season at home against the Houston Rockets on October 17th, the Warriors will face the Cleveland Cavaliers at home on Christmas Day in a 2015-17 till infinity or whenever the Cavs trade Kyrie Irving NBA Finals rematch. The Warriors also announced that the team will receive its rings for their...

Will improvements to the NBA schedule be an investment in player health?

Will improvements to the NBA schedule be an investment in player health?

Coach Steve Kerr’s decision to rest players for a televised game against the Spurs on March 11, 2017 has forced the league to make significant scheduling changes. It only took Zaza Pachulia clumsily stepping backward onto Kevin Durant’s foot, resulting in what was feared to be severe knee injury to Durant, for Warriors Coach Steve Kerr to start resting players. Everything we know about sleep deprivation, travel fatigue and back-to-back games indicates Pachulia could have been asleep on his feet and Durant’s reaction time was potentially slowed. Golden State had been handed the most...

Rosalyn Gold-Onwude takes Africa by storm, celebrates #WorldLionDay in dynamic fashion

The broadcaster has been in South Africa covering the third-annual NBA Africa Games. It’s World Lion Day! And this is Rosalyn Gold-Onwude, the adored Warriors’ broadcaster, making friends with an adorable lion cub. Check out the size of those paws! #SouthAfrica A post shared by Ros Gold-Onwude (@rosgo21) on Aug 10, 2017 at 10:29am PDT Sadly, World Lion Day is needed because humans continue to destroy these beautiful creatures at alarming rates, for both commerce and sport. Some get a thrill from shooting lions and other endangered species and taking their heads for wall...

NBA rumor: The Warriors may pursue Paul George

NBA rumor: The Warriors may pursue Paul George

According to Tim Kawakami and Marcus Thompson of The Athletic, the Warriors may be trying to add Paul George to the superteam in the future. But don’t expect Paul George to actually become a Warrior. The Golden State Warriors are already the greatest superteam in NBA history, but they might not be finished trying to add star talent to their roster. On the podcast Posting Up with Tim Bontemps, Tim Kawakami revealed he and Marcus Thompson were speculating that the Warriors would try to acquire Paul George in the near future. Marcus and I have teased this for more than a year. We think...

SB Nation Mock Expansion Draft: Warriors protected players

SB Nation Mock Expansion Draft: Warriors protected players

In light of Commissioner Adam Silver’s recent comments hinting at an expansion team in the near future, we take a look into the eight players the Warriors might protect in a hypothetical expansion draft. For the Player’s Tribune, C.J. McCollum asked NBA Commissioner Adam Silver about the possibility of league expansion, specifically back to Seattle. Silver responded that expansion is seriously on the table, and might even happen in the next few years. Seattle, which lost the Supersonics to the Oklahoma City Thunder, is on the short list of locations for a new team. The last time the...

Things We Love About The Warriors: Gratitude

Golden State bids adieu to three players following the 2016-17 championship season, with gratitude for their service and well-wishes for the future. Things We Love About The Warriors is a series focused on traits we admire about the team as a whole, or individual players, that extend beyond the boundaries of the court. It takes a healthy dose of humility to play far fewer minutes per night — or games per season — than one is used to, or capable of, doing. But Golden State players do just that. Their willingness to sacrifice in this way — to give up individual playing time, which...

JaVale McGee is shooting threes now

JaVale McGee is shooting threes now

This summer, JaVale McGee has been adding a new weapon to his game: a three-point shot. Coming off a breakout season, JaVale McGee was likely searching for a decent contract this offseason. At 29 years old, he averaged 23.0 points, 11.9 rebounds, and 3.3 blocks per 36 minutes, on 64.2% True Shooting. Playing with the best talent in the world, McGee excelled as an athletic finisher, providing the Warriors with their best vertical spacer in years. Looking for potential offers, he’s been filming his workouts. It’s easy to forget how dominant NBA players are in an open...

2016-17 Warriors Season Review: Someday soon, Patrick McCaw is going to be the best player in the league

2016-17 Warriors Season Review: Someday soon, Patrick McCaw is going to be the best player in the league

The Warriors struck gold once again in the second round. I was at the 2016 NBA Draft when the Warriors bought into the second round, getting Patrick McCaw from the Milwaukee Bucks. To be honest, I had no idea who the dude was. However, an immediate scouring of his stats showed some impressive trends. Eye popping number for McCaw: 2.4 stls per game. Throw in 36% 3PT shot, 5 rebs and nearly 4 asts. Versatile wing, type of player GSW loves— LetsGoWarriors (@LetsGoWarriors) June 24, 2016 The Warriors, who have a stupidly impressive recent draft record when it comes to late first or...

Report: Warriors adding a throwback jersey to their 2017-2018 Nike uniform closet

Report: Warriors adding a throwback jersey to their 2017-2018 Nike uniform closet

The Golden State Warriors are one of eight teams to rock new “Classic” uniforms for the upcoming season, according to sportslogos.net According to Conrad Burry on SportsLogos.net, the Golden State Warriors will be one of eight teams blessed by Nike and the NBA to carry a “Classic” uniform for the 2017-2018 season. And it might not have been the one you expected! Or, it maybe was. The likeliest throwback design to reemerge (and sell a million units) is, and always will be, the iconic “The City” set from 1967-1968. [Author’s note: I’m wearing the shorts from that set as I type...

Things aren’t always what they seem (and neither are people)

Things aren’t always what they seem (and neither are people)

The video of Stephen Curry busting a move at Harrison Barnes’s wedding is a prime example of the dangers of forming narratives without the benefit of context. Also, it’s a cautionary tale about the ways simple fun can go horribly wrong. So, apparently, two-time NBA champion Stephen Curry had a hell of a time at Harrison Barnes’s wedding — mocking rival hoops star LeBron James with dances, grimaces and funny faces — much to the delight of those gathered around him. Or, he didn’t. Retired Cavalier Brendan Haywood recorded a video (which appears to have been removed) and used a...

Around the NBA: The Oklahoma City Thunder’s reboot

Around the NBA: The Oklahoma City Thunder’s reboot

Winning one of the most lopsided trades in recent memory, the Thunder seem primed to return to the top of the Western Conference Almost exactly a year after Kevin Durant left the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors, the Thunder acquired All-Star Paul George, one of the best small forwards in the league, for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. George is similar to Durant in many respects: he’s tall, long, and athletic, a lock-down defender, and an accurate shooter. He’s not as good as Durant, but will fill the same role as Durant did in the Thunder’s system. He’s a...

Poll: Who are the top 15 wings in the NBA?

Poll: Who are the top 15 wings in the NBA?

In the second installment of our summer series, we ask you to rank NBA wings. Earlier this week, Kevin Durant took to YouTube to remind the world that LeBron James is not, in fact, better than him. With his first NBA championship, a 2017 NBA Finals MVP award, and an iconic shot in Game 3 of the NBA Finals against LeBron, it’s no wonder that he’s riding high right now — as Michael D. Sykes, II of SB Nation has already written, this is the Summer of Durant (and, I might add, everyone else is just hoping to get a time share). The feisty Durant we all knew and loved in 2010 on social...

NBA 2017-18 preview: Warriors on top of ESPN win projections

Looks like we will be battling Texas all year - Rockets and Spurs both looking dangerously strong We may be deep in the vacuum of the offseason now – stuck between the end of summer league, but not yet into training camps – but that doesn’t mean nothing is happening. In order to fill the deep, dark void in our basketball lives, ESPN was kind enough to run some predictions about the upcoming season. It’s never too soon to start thinking about another championship, so let’s see how everything is projected to shake out. Like all projections, this process is as much art as science,...

Golden State of Mind’s Top 10 NBA point guards

Golden State of Mind’s Top 10 NBA point guards

The GSoM community ranked their top 10 point guards with the first place finisher being pretty obvious. Shortly after the Memphis Grizzlies gave the Golden State Warriors their first loss of the 2015 NBA Playoffs in Game 2 of the second round, Nate Scott of USA Today wrote a piece describing why Mike Conley is the most underrated player in the NBA. Conley doesn’t have the otherworldly athleticism of John Wall or the sweet stroke of Curry or the narrative of Derrick Rose or the swagger of Chris Paul. He’s a great teammate for a team that doesn’t get on national TV a lot. He makes...
