  1. Klay Thompson excited to still be with Warriors, thinks they can win title next season

    Klay Thompson

    I don’t see the Warriors as contenders, but it’s good that Thompson does.

  2. Thursday And-1 Links: DeSean Jackson trolls LeBron James… poorly

    Also, DeMarcus Cousins on Team USA? He wants to be.

  3. Lance Stephenson is the Pacers’ fork in the road

    Why salary-cap math says Indiana should keep Lance Stephenson – and maybe even rebuild a leaner roster around him

  4. Warriors owner explains rationale for dismissing Jackson

    Joe Lacob, Peter Guber

    Popular coach won games, but the Golden State owner explains why that wasn’t enough.

  5. Trade rumor update: Nets may be Kyle Lowry frontrunners

    Dec 13, 2013, 4:58 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Charlotte Bobcats

    When last we left off with “Days of our Kyle Lowry,” the Raptors were shopping their favorite point guard around hard and had talked with New York. Then Knicks owner James Dolan pulled the plug on it because… well, he’s James Dolan. Now the Nets may be the frontrunners but the Knicks want back in…

  6. Warriors sign Hilton Armstrong from D-League

    The Warriors need big-man depth. Festus Ezeli has been out all season. Jermaine O’Neal and Draymond Green are banged up. Marreese Speights can’t gain Mark Jackson’s trust. Andre Iguodala is injured, too, and although he mostly plays on the wing, his absence the number of minutes he and Harrison Barnes can soak up as a…

  7. Andre Iguodala avoids surgery, but can the Golden State Warriors stay healthy?

    Nov 24, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    This has been a brutal week in the NBA for injuries, but telling that to the Golden State Warriors is like preaching to the choir. The Warriors had already lost key rotation players in Toney Douglas and Jermaine O’Neal to minor injuries, and that’s in addition to being without backup centers Ogjen Kuzmi and Festus Ezeli.…

  8. Iguodala leaves game with hamstring injury, said he felt “pop”

    Nov 23, 2013, 3:00 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    Andre Iguodala has been a fantastic fit with Golden State, the glue that filled in needed spaces on both ends of the floor — a second shot creator, a guy who finished in transition, and the defensive presence on the perimeter they needed. Which is to say, they are going to miss him if he…

  9. Warriors think they have a healthy Andrew Bogut this season

    Aug 30, 2013, 1:02 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Last season, Andrew Bogut missed 50 games. The season before that 54. The season before that 17. It’s been a long time since we’ve really seen a healthy Bogut for an extended period. But we also saw in the playoffs last season what a healthy Bogut means to Golden State — he is their defensive…

  10. Reports: Jermaine O’Neal, Toney Douglas to sign with Golden State

    Jul 9, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT

    Jermaine O'Neal

    Golden State looks formidable: Stephen Curry at the point, Klay Thompson at the two, Andre Iguodala and David Lee are your forwards. Andrew Bogut is the starting center and his health (and defense) could be the lynchpin for how far this Warriors team can go. However, they need depth — and they may have found…

  11. Warriors general manager Bob Myers hints team might buy draft pick

    Jun 22, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Joe Lacob, Peter Guber

    Just three teams don’t have picks in the upcoming NBA Draft: the Heat, Raptors and Warriors. The Heat, though every team could use draft picks, are doing just fine. The Raptors, according at least one prominent report, sent out cash in the Rudy Gay trade and the Collective Bargaining Agreement limits how much money a…

  12. Warriors’ Festus Ezeli out 6-9 months after knee surgery

    Jun 13, 2013, 8:24 PM EDT

    Festus Ezeli

    Warriors backup center Festus Ezeli is going to be out for the start of the season after undergoing surgery on his right knee Wednesday, the team has announced. Ezeli sprained his right knee in the Warriors regular season finale but battled through it for two rounds of the post season, playing 11 minutes a game…

  13. Andris Biedrins to exercise player option, return to Warriors next season

    May 24, 2013, 1:22 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs Tim Duncan drives to the basket against Golden State Warriors Andris Biedrins during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Oakland

    When a player averages less than one point and three rebounds per game over the course of a season, while possessing the option to come back for another year with the same team at a salary of $9 million, it doesn’t take a degree in advanced economics to figure out what the chosen course of…

  14. Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis headline NBA All-Rookie Team

    May 14, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    APTOPIX Rookie of Year Basketball

    It was an interesting year for rookies. Damian Lillard stood out as the point guard Portland needed, but he had the advantage of talent around him that other promising players (Anthony Davis, Andre Drummond) did not. Then there were good young players like Jonas Valanciunas flying under the radar in Toronto. So picking the NBA…

  15. Preview: Spurs seek answers in game 3, but the Warriors keep changing the questions

    May 10, 2013, 1:15 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    It’s not a stretch to say the Warriors have been the better team so far this series. They’ve led both contests for the majority of the minutes and it took an amazing comeback, two overtimes, and a last second three pointer for the Spurs to get their win. Heading back to Oakland, the Warriors have…

  17. Warriors look to close out the Nuggets, but is their focus on the right things?

    May 2, 2013, 3:50 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson, Stephen Curry

    The Warriors look to be in a perfect position. They have the series lead over the Nuggets at 3 games to 2. They’re heading home to Oracle Arena to play a close out game where the fans will create an environment that’s rarely seen in pro sports. They have the best player in the series…

  18. Mark Jackson not happy with George Karl over ‘disrespectful’ comment he made about Festus Ezeli

    May 2, 2013, 3:13 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Five

    The war of words between Mark Jackson and George Karl is heating up in advance of Thursday night’s Game 6 between the Nuggets and the Warriors. The entire series has been a physical one, with players on both sides getting in their fair share of shots. But Jackson took exception to the way Denver defended…

    The Warriors shot the lights out in Denver to steal Game 2 from the Nuggets, and home court advantage in the best of seven first round series right along with it. In Game 3 at Oracle Arena on Friday, Golden State didn’t need an otherworldly performance to seal the victory; they only needed the Nuggets…

  21. Oh no, not again: Curry out indefinitely with sprained ankle

    Jan 17, 2013, 10:38 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    With most players you would just shrug this news off — Stephen Curry rolled his ankle during shootaround, reports CSNBayArea.com. He did it when he landed on the foot of rookie Festus Ezeli. But with Curry, who has had multiple ankle surgeries and missed considerable time last season with ankle issues, it has Warriors saying…

  22. Blake Griffin has awkward fall after flagrant foul by Ezeli (VIDEO)

    Jan 3, 2013, 1:08 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Blake Griffin starts his drive from the top of the key, goes right and blows by Festus Ezeli and as he starts to elevate for the shot Ezeli hooks his arm. The result is an awkward and ugly foul that earned Ezeli a flagrant one foul. Griffin laid on the ground for a little bit grabbing his head…

    They are 15-7, on a five-game winning streak all on the road with a signature win now in Miami. Their shooters and offense starting to find a groove while they dominate the glass. They are a team to watch in the Pacific because they are just going to get better. The Lakers wish we were…

  24. NBA Power Rankings: Oh-oh Thunder road, oh Thunder road

    Dec 10, 2012, 2:43 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    A lot of the preseason talk in the West focused on the Lakers… and it still does. And too often it ends with “and the Thunder are still contenders, too.” No, the Thunder are the defending Western Conference champs, the team to beat in that conference and they look pretty good right now. Thank you…
