    This summer, while LeBron James was going about his decision and Decision, there was an interesting question floating around: What would James be worth on an open market? The NBA, with its max salaries, limits what guys like LeBron or Kobe Bryant or Kevin Durant might make in a truly free market. Their value goes…

  2. Other Game of the Night: Jason Richardson wins his homecoming in Oakland

    Dec 3, 2010, 5:55 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry Steve Nash

    What, there was another game Thursday night? Yes, one with a big homecoming too — Jason Richardson returned to Oakland… okay, maybe we can let this theme of the night go. But the Suns beat the Warriors 107-101 and Richardson did have 25 points. Both teams were in triple digits but the game wasn’t as…

  3. David Lee returns from gross elbow injury

    Nov 28, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    David Lee had a scary injury when he was accidentally bitten by Wilson Chandler (Chandler lost a bunch of teeth in the collision). It was was also a really gross injury. You see, the human mouth has a ton of bacteria in it and getting sharp pieces of tooth stuck in your elbow tends to…

  4. Anyone want Brandan Wright? Apparently he’s on the trade block.

    Nov 26, 2010, 12:29 PM EDT

    Brandan Wright

    This early in the season you don’t see a lot of trades, and the rumors of guys who will get moved closer to the deadline just start to bubble to the surface. Meet Brandan Wright. The forward is part of a crowded Golden State front court and can’t really crack the rotation in a serious…

  5. David Lee is out of the hospital, still out a couple weeks

    Nov 18, 2010, 8:16 PM EDT

    David Lee

    Thursday morning, eight days after the initial injury, David Lee walked out of a Bay Area hospital. Which is strange because when Golden State’s Lee’s elbow collided with the face of the New York Knicks Wilson Chandler going for a rebound, it looked like Chandler got the worst of it. By far. Chandler lost a…

  6. His doctor says David Lee’s elbow still looks like he was in a bar brawl

    Nov 17, 2010, 11:08 AM EDT

    DLee_Rebound

    David Lee did what he had been trained to do since junior high — get the rebound. Use your big body, that is your ball. That space this time happened to include Wilson Chandler’s face. And teeth. Which is where Lee’s elbow landed. I know nothing about Chandler’s state of oral hygiene — it’s called…

  7. David Lee to miss a couple weeks because of this

    Nov 12, 2010, 4:12 PM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/9LaVM5cIVsE?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Wilson Chandler thinks he’s a hockey player. His reaction to losing a couple teeth was more Rangers than Knicks. And you thought Mike D’Antoni’s teams were soft. David Lee? He will miss a couple weeks due to an infected elbow, according to Jeff Goodman from Fox Sports. Both his elbow and bicep were swollen, called…

  8. Keith Smart says rebounding key to Warriors start

    Nov 12, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    DLee_Rebound

    Golden State is different this season. You can see it in the 6-3 record, you can see it in better effort — well, any effort — on defense. But coach Keith Smart told KNBR in San Francisco (via Sports Radio Interviews) that the biggest difference has been in rebounding — the Warriors are one of…

  9. Joakim Noah won’t be oppressed by shirts, pesky social norms

    Nov 12, 2010, 2:09 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    Joakim Noah is a weird dude. Seriously. He’s productive, unbridled, effective, wild — you can take your pick of frenetic adjectives and chances are, they apply. Noah’s career has been marked equally by his production and his energy, and it’s safe to say that regardless of what Noah does, he’ll do it in his own…

  10. The unexpectedly expected rise of Dorell Wright

    Nov 4, 2010, 6:17 PM EDT

    Dorell Wright

    If you had Dorell Wright pegged as a 20-point scorer or the league leader in three-pointers made a week into the season, I’d politely ask that you step toward the stake surrounded by kindling. We don’t take kindly to witches and soothsayers around here. In retrospect, though, it makes complete sense. Maybe not Wright’s .545…

  11. In case you missed it: Blake Griffin can sky

    Oct 29, 2010, 6:35 PM EDT

    The Clippers and Blake Griffin take on Golden State tonight and that might be must-watch television. Yes, “Clippers” and “must watch” in the same sentence, but it’s Griffin. The man just skies, and in what should be a wide open game he should have chances. Plus Griffin on David Lee should be s show.

  12. NBA Season Preview: Golden State Warriors

    Oct 21, 2010, 4:53 PM EDT

    Warriors_huddle

    Last season: 26-56, which is kind of the record you end up with when you don’t play much defense. And Don Nelson had stopped caring about defense, or seemingly coaching half the time. But as much as that, it was an injury-ravaged season that kept the win total that low. Head Coach: Keith Smart, who…

  13. Warriors Lou Amundson to have surgery on his broken finger

    Oct 17, 2010, 8:33 PM EDT

    Finally, Saturday night Lou Amundson got in a preseason game with the Golden State Warriors. And now he is out again. For a while. Amundson fractured that finger in the fourth quarter of Saturday night’s game against Portland and now will need surgery on that finger, according to Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com. No date for…

  14. Warriors name starting five. That didn’t take long.

    Sep 30, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    Keith Smart knows what he wants from the Warriors. And he knows who he wants to do it. Two days into training camp Smart named his starting five according to Matt Steinmetz of Comcast Bay Area: Stephen Curry, Monta Ellis, Dorell Wright, David Lee and Andris Biedrins. No real surprises on that list. In fact…

  15. Rondo is better than Derrick Rose, David Lee (in NBA 2K11 anyway)

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    Anybody want some chips, onion rings? The NBA 2K11 commercials are pretty clever.

  16. What we know about incoming Golden State owner Joe Lacob

    Jul 29, 2010, 8:43 PM EDT

    Golden State fans have proceeded under this premise: Any owner not named Al Davis was going to be better than Chris Cohan. On that scale, Joe Lacob (and partner Peter Guber) qualifies. But what kind of owners will they be? Lacob, who will be the front man and was a minority owner in Boston, did…

  17. Somebody drank Jobu's rum, because there is an injury curse on the Warriors

    Jul 23, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Last year the Warriors were not hit with an injury bug, it was more like an injury plague of locust. In the nearly quarter century since the NBA started tracking this stuff, only one NBA team has ever lost more man games to injury. Golden State lost 501 man games last season. Then David Lee…

  18. David Lee out for World Championships, will not need surgery

    Jul 21, 2010, 4:32 PM EDT

    UPDATE 4:32 pm: Lee has been diagnosed with “mallet finger” which is when the tendon that allows control of the part of the finger beyond the last joint comes off. The treatment: wear a split on your finger for six weeks. But this is fairly common and treatable. 3:22 pm: You had a feeling things…

  19. David Lee injures finger on first day of USA Basketball camp

    Jul 20, 2010, 8:09 PM EDT

    UPDATE 8:09 pm: ESPN got a quote from Lee himself, and it doesn’t sound good: “I looked down and my finger was completely turned to the side,” Lee said. “It’s possibly a tendon or a dislocation of some sort. It’s something I’ve got to go have looked at either way. 6:38 pm: The biggest fear…

  20. Members of Team USA continue to drop like flies, Amar'e Stoudemire now doubtful for World Championships

    Jul 20, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    When LeBron James decided he was too cool to play for Team USA this summer, it seemed inevitable that all the cool kids would follow suit. Though guys like Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and Carmelo Anthony may have been leaders on their own clubs, during the summer all things go through LeBron. Yet Team USA’s…

  21. David Lee is still the best citizen in the Knicks organization

    Jul 20, 2010, 10:17 AM EDT

    David Lee isn’t even a Knick anymore and he is still the best representative of that organization. Which says plenty. A story in the New York Times explains how Lee was the only Knick — or former Knick, in this case — to attend the funeral for Scott Jaffer, a longtime N.B.A. security official who…

  22. Team USA: The B-Team that actually wants to be there

    Jul 11, 2010, 10:14 PM EDT

    Yahoo! Sports reports that Jerry Colangelo has confirmed that not a single player from the 2008 Olympic team will join Team USA for the World Championships in Turkey this summer.  In the midst of a public outpouring of rage and disgust over the behavior of how and where various free agents decided to exercise their…

  23. David Lee headed to Golden State in sign-and-trade deal

    Jul 9, 2010, 2:09 AM EDT

    David Lee is crossing country for some big checks, he has been traded to Golden State David Lee is going to Golden State — and that is good for him in that he will get paid. He agreed to a sign-and-trade deal that nets him $80 million over six years, shipping him to Golden State…

  24. Amar'e Stoudemire will only kind of leave the Suns empty-handed

    Jul 8, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    UPDATE 11:38 AM: Although the plan described below is currently in place, LeBron James could make things a bit more interesting if he were to sign with the Knicks. From Paul Coro: However, if LeBron James picks New York today, the Suns could still have a chance at Lee. The Suns would have to do…

  25. Knicks, Warriors close to an Anthony Randolph, David Lee swap

    Jul 7, 2010, 10:53 PM EDT

    There were questions about how David Lee fit into the seven-seconds-or-less New York Knicks offense last season. So now he could end up with Golden State — one of the few teams to play even faster. The Knicks and Warriors are close to a deal that would sign-and-trade David Lee to the West coast and…
