Golden State Warriors

  1. The Warriors have a good problem at small forward

    Oct 7, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    The Warriors, when the draft was approaching, were desperate for small forward help. They wanted an experienced player to “make the” at the position. They couldn’t find a star upgrade by trading the draft pick, so they picked up  Harrison Barnes. They still don’t have that star, but as it turns out, they have enough…

  2. Andrew Bogut wants his team to fight. Each other.

    Oct 6, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    andrew bogut

    Andrew Bogut has what you might call a false positive ID for being injury-prone. While it’s true that Bogut has lost a huge number of games over the  past three seasons to injury, much of that has stemmed from a serious of freak injuries. He doesn’t have the worrisome food problems that plague so many…

  4. Bynum sidelined three weeks with bone bruise in knee

    Oct 1, 2012, 1:09 PM EDT

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    Andrew Bynum just got back from Germany, where he had the Orthokine therapy — you know it better as the Kobe treatment — on his knee. Something he has had done before, and last season he played a full season on those troublesome knees. This time the procedure left him with a small bone bruise,…

  5. Warriors trying to tone down the rhetoric and just win, baby

    Sep 28, 2012, 12:07 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson

    Before last season the Warriors were brash. New owners, new coach right out of the broadcast booth where he was paid to be opinionated. They were trying to create a new aura around the long-struggling Warriors. The organization top to bottom talked openly about making the playoffs. Then they didn’t make the playoffs. Overpromise and…

  6. NBA Season Preview: Cleveland Cavaliers

    Sep 27, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    Last season: Despite the ugly record of 21-45, there was hope last season in Cleveland in the name of Kyrie Irving. The No. 1 draft pick out of Duke was Rookie of the Year and looked like a future All-Star. (Then he carried that over to his performance with the USA Select Team this summer…

  7. Who is NBA’s biggest trash talker? Curry says Nate Robinson, CP3

    Sep 27, 2012, 4:07 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    For some of us, the first name that comes to mind is Kobe Bryant, he constantly chirps. He said he started the trash talk on Team USA. Other people – particularly smaller guards — might think of Kevin Garnett. There are a lot of guys who talk smack during an NBA game, but when The…

  8. No playoff promises from Warriors’ Jackson this year

    Sep 27, 2012, 11:21 AM EDT

    mark-jacksonwarriors

    Last year Mark Jackson was coming to the head coach’s chair straight out of a broadcast booth where he was supposed to be opinionated and brash. He was in front of a new team ownership group that was brimming with confidence. Jackson played right into all of it and was talking playoffs for the Warriors.…

  9. The Inbounds: Ellis and Jennings and the cliff of compromise

    Sep 26, 2012, 5:57 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Something’s gotta give in Milwaukee. (Check out our Bucks season preview here.) The Bucks traded their often-injured-but-still-awesome-when-he-played center Andrew Bogut last season to Golden State and took on Monta Ellis. Ellis was a promising young star. Then he was the guy who got injured in the moped accident. Then he was a terrific player again.…

  10. NBA Season Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova   goes up for a shot against Toronto Raptors' Alan Anderson during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee Wisconsin

    Last season: Abort the mission! New plan! New plan! The Bucks slammed on the parking brake, wrenched the wheel and Tokyo Drifted in a new direction last season, abandoning the “all defense all the time” team built around Andrew Bogut and giving p on the fleeting hope Bogut will ever, ever be healthy. They swapped…

  11. Jose Calderon denies rumors he is unhappy, wants trade

    Sep 25, 2012, 8:59 AM EDT

    Jose Calderon

    Jose Calderon played well for Toronto last season. A lot of people didn’t notice because, well, he plays for Toronto and they weren’t very good. But Calderon was — 10.5 points a game, 8.8 assists and he had a PER of 16.7. So, the Raptors went out and got Kyle Lowry in the offseason to…

  12. Warriors, Curry table extension talks. But he’s still optimistic.

    Sep 25, 2012, 8:02 AM EDT

    stephen curry

    The world needs optimists. Stephen Curry and his agent are optimists. They believe that even though the Warriors and Curry have tabled talks of a contract extension, once team officials seem him playing in the preseason things will come off the table and a deal will get done. That’s what they told Matt Steinmetz of…

  13. Quote of the Day: Bogut shakes head at Lakers riches

    Sep 21, 2012, 1:37 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    “The rich get richer. That’s generally how it is in the NBA. Grown accustomed to it the last five-six years. The rich get richer and the poor have to kind of scrounge and find other role players to fill it in. That’s kind of the way it is.” —Golden State center Andrew Bogut talking about…

  14. Andrew Bogut plans to play in a couple preseason games

    Sep 21, 2012, 8:12 AM EDT

    Andrew Bogut, Mario Chalmers, Shane Battier

    The Warriors continue to get good news about their two key pieces battling ankle injuries. First came the reports that point guard Stephen Curry had been cleared to play 5-on-5 and was getting in run with teammates. Now comes this good news about center Andrew Bogut — coming off ankle surgery last April — via…

  15. Stephen Curry is back to playing 5-on-5 for first time since March

    Sep 19, 2012, 11:40 PM EDT

    stephen curry

    You can bet this comes up in the PBT preview of the Golden State Warriors, but Stephen Curry staying healthy this season is one of their keys to making the playoffs. So what Curry tweeted late Wednesday is a good sign. Finally got the go ahead to play some pickup with the squad today. Felt…

  16. Heat sign former Knick Harrellson to non-guaranteed deal

    Sep 17, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    Josh Harrellson tweeted a few weeks back that he was headed to Miami, hopefully for the entire season. What the former Knick big man was heading to in reality was a one-week tryout with the team. That tryout went well enough for him to get another one — this time at training camp. The Knicks…

  18. Andrew Bogut expected back for Warriors season opener

    Sep 13, 2012, 10:19 AM EDT

    andrew bogut

    For Golden State to have a shot at making the playoffs in the West — which is their stated goal for the season — they are going to need Andrew Bogut and Stephen Curry to play in at least 70 games each. Which after both had ankle injuries that required surgery last season is a…

  19. Who has the worst contract in NBA? One list starts with Hedo.

    Sep 13, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic Hedo Turkoglu complains after he picked up second foul against New York Knicks in NBA basketball game in New York

    It’s list season in the NBA — there is not much to write about, so everyone seems to be doing a list of some kind. Counting down the game’s best players, for example. But Sean Deveney at the Sporting News went a different way and asked “who has the worst contracs in the NBA? One…

  21. Could the Heat be looking to move Joel Anthony?

    Sep 10, 2012, 12:25 PM EDT

    Joel Anthony

    Pat Riley is not afraid to make moves. He’s got his big three in Miami, a few nice role players around them and that is enough to have them in title contention. If he can make a move that improves the team or saves some money, he’ll do it, but he can do it on…

  22. Winderman: Juwan Howard, other name players could fade away from NBA

    Sep 10, 2012, 10:05 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The fadeaway long has been an NBA fact of life. While the stars hold press conferences to announce enough is enough, their fame to keep them in the spotlight (and possibly part of broadcast teams) long after their playing days — something we soon might get from Ben Wallace — for the majority of those…

  23. Report: Dominic McGuire signs with Toronto

    Sep 9, 2012, 7:13 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    Dominic McGuire has hung out there as one of the few name free agents left on the list. McGuire was a reserve in Golden State last year, averaging just 17.6 minutes. He averaged just 7.3 points per 36 minutes, but also tagged close to 8 rebounds and 1.4 assists at that rate. Additionally, it was…
