Season Review: Leandro Barbosa and the Structural Familiarity of GSW

Leandro Barbosa was good at times last season. Bad in others. All together, he came back to the Golden State Warriors because the result necessitated the comfort of familiarity. The Bay Area is the hub of startup culture, one that necessitates and even promotes the cycle of revolving doors. Find one job, work 65 hours a week, drink a lot of beer before, during, and after those hours, and make a lot of money in the meantime. After 15 months, whether or not that new innovation you all thought would definitely "blow up" did or not, it's likely time to move on, find a new place to drink IPAs,...

What would it take for the Warriors to land Kevin Durant in 2015 sign-and-trade?

Tim Kawakami at Talking Points takes a look at what it might take for the Golden State Warriors to land Kevin Durant in 2016 free agency. There's no way the Warriors can find the approximate $25 million it would take to sign him straight up, so Kawakami looks at a sign-and-trade scenario: Let's be clear and blunt: Any Warriors sign-and-trade offer for Durant would have to start with Harrison Barnes. It'd just have to-he plays the same position, he's young and somebody I'd imagine OKC wouldn't mind in any deal. But obviously that'd just be a tiny part of it; the Warriors would have to add...

Golden State Warriors 2014-15 season review: How Steph Curry took over the NBA Universe

As the stars aligned for the Golden State Warriors in 2015, sharp shooting superstar Stephen Curry shined brightest of them all. I was extremely excited to be able to review the 2014-2015 NBA season of Wardell Stephen Curry Jr. What seemed like a rather easy task due to the laundry list of Curry's accomplishments this season quickly turned into quite possibly the hardest piece I have had to write to date. Make no mistake: this article is not about me, but before I jump head first off the high dive into his season I just wanted to mention that I was fortunate enough to witness some of...

How do you feel about Luke Walton replacing Alvin Gentry?

GSoM community member LOVEMEORSPEIGHTSME posted a poll the other day to gauge how people felt about the news that Luke Walton would be taking Alvin Gentry's spot on the Golden State Warriors' coaching staff this coming season. What is your overall reaction to Luke Walton being the assistant coach? Does he inspire confidence in you? Can he adjust on the fly as quickly as Alvin Gentry could? Is Luke in fact in his last year with the Warriors, soon to be a head coach of his own team? As of this morning, most of those voting are trusting the move even if nobody is overly ecstatic about...

Gerald Wallace: Breaking down whether the vet fits into the Warriors' plans

The journeyman is set to enter his 15th season with his sixth NBA team. Besides his contract, Wallace may not have much to provide for Golden State. When the Golden State Warriors swapped David Lee for Gerald Wallace and Chris Babb, their primary intent was to minimize the luxury tax bill created after Draymond Green inked a lucrative deal this offseason. Additionally, when factoring in Lee's desire for a fresh start and larger role, it was only a matter of time before a trade would go down. In dealing Lee for Wallace, Golden State saved roughly $24 million in total as our own Sam...

Luke Walton and Jarron Collins to be promoted

It seems that after a promising stint in Vegas at Summer League, the Warriors will stay the course and promote from within to replace Alvin Gentry. Luke Walton, throughout his time with the Warriors Summer League squad in Vegas, remained composed and measured. His response to every question was that of a weathered professional. Every piece of praise. Every desire to improve. Given the opportunity to be a head coach, he excelled. And now, with the departure of Alvin Gentry to the New Orleans Pelicans, it seems as if the Warriors have found the right man to step in and fill that role in the...

Warriors Bigs are Young, Talented and Scary

Led by Draymond Green, the Warriors front court has gone from being a chronic weakness to a position group to envy. Youth and skill abound with the biggest Dubs. As recently as 2014, many pundits and fans openly questions whether a playoff team led by it's guard tandem could hope to compete in the loaded Western Conference. Just months later, we certainly have our answer. Parades and praise aside, no team can hope to remain a title contender, let alone a favorite, without the ability to play multiple styles of basketball depending on the matchup, and a constant influx of new cost-controlled...

Golden State Warriors 2014-15 season review: Another year of growth for Klay Thompson

Klay Thompson solidified his status as one of the premier shooting guards during his 2014-15 NBA campaign. Klay Thompson fell short of winning ESPY's 'Best Record-Breaking Performance' Award for his NBA record 37-point third quarter outburst. Nonetheless, his play this season proved to the league that he belongs in the upper echelon of shooting guards.

Here's who we've covered so far: Draymond Green -...

Stock Up, Stock Down: Off-season Edition Part II

We look around the Association to conclude our comprehensive stock market update. We continue with part two of our off-season market watch. You can see part one here. Stock Up: Phil Jackson I don't care how you think his off-season is goink, the Zen Master earns an "up" grade by virtue of selecting Kristaps Porzingis in the NBA draft. Though the pick was booed by woe-is-us Knicks fans, it was a surprisingly level-headed decision for Jackson. Porzingis doesn't fit the triangle offense -- like, at all. He's the least triangle big you could imagine. And yet Phil resisted the urge to put...

Golden State Warriors season review: Why Brandon Rush might still be a valued contributor

Warriors fans were excited when Bob Myers inked Brandon Rush to a minimum contract a year ago. Sixty shot attempts later and most of those fans are singing a different tune. But with the free agent pool pretty much dried up, Rush could be exactly the piece the Warriors need. Almost exactly one year ago, we had a conversation about rumors surrounding free agent and former Warriors sixth man Brandon Rush, and the chance that the team might be able to add him to the roster for just the veteran's minimum. Everyone seemed to be on board with the prospect — Rush had been a solid contributor...

Golden State Warriors 2014-15 season review: A season of sacrifice for Andre Iguodala

A consummate professional, we look back at the season that catapulted Andre Iguodala into greatness. As one of the worlds most influential business thinker's, Dr. Gary Hamel once said; "A noble purpose inspires sacrifice, stimulates innovation and encourages perseverance." I searched through a lot of cheesy quotes about sacrifice but there was something about Dr. Hamel's words that stood out to me in particular. These ten words seemed to touch on some of the key elements that defined the 2015 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors. Let's break it down piece by piece. First of all, the noble...

Warriors Summer League star Matt Stainbrook talks about his career, his goals, and his goggles

Matt Stainbrook shows why he is a fan favorite. One of my favorite parts of Summer League in Vegas was getting the chance to interview and befriend Matt Stainbrook. Having attended Xavier, he became a twitter sensation during last season's NCAA tournament. "StainTrain," "The Big Yeti," and "Holy Shit Who Is That Guy?" were all popular nicknames. Stainbrook does not look like your typical NBA player. Sure, he's 6'10", but even after losing 50 pounds in college, he's still not exactly your, um, svelte prototype. But he is highly skilled, and highly skilled big men are hard to come by. His...
