Golden State Warriors

  1. Report: Golden State thinking small forward and Jason Kidd

    Jun 6, 2012, 1:28 PM EDT

    Mavericks guard Kidd watches from the bench against the Spurs  during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    One half of the report out of the San Francisco Chronicle makes a lot of sense — Golden State needs an upgrade at the three spot and they have a lot of assets heading into the draft to make a move. But the second half of this makes no sense to me. The San Francisco…

  2. Report: Warriors targeting Iguodala, Gay, Granger, unicorns, hippogriffs

    Jun 2, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Warriors logo

    The Warriors at this point might as well put up a big neon sign outside their offices that read “TRADE MARKET FLEA SALE TODAY!” Ever since they went into tank mode, they have made it known that their players are available for trade and that they want a small forward in return. And by landing…

  4. What would it mean for teams to win NBA Draft Lottery

    May 29, 2012, 7:59 PM EDT

    Final Four - Louisville v Kentucky

    Fates will be decided by some bouncing balls and random numbers Wednesday. Not just the fate of lock No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis (and guys like Andre Drummond, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Thomas Robinson and many more). It’s the fate of franchises (and general managers) that will be decided. What would it mean to the 14…

  5. Jerry West says Warriors need veteran role players

    May 29, 2012, 10:22 AM EDT

    Jerry West

    I feel like every story we right this summer about the Warriors will contain the sentence “If Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut can remain healthy…” That would make them a lot better (especially defensively with Bogut), but it’s just the first step. The next one is to bring in some veteran role players so they…

  6. Josh Childress sets dubious free throw record

    May 27, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors vs Phoenix Suns

    Josh Childress, the former Hawk sixth man who bolted for Greece and was coaxed back to the NBA by Phoenix, wasn’t impressive this season and fell out of the rotation with the Suns (at least until Grant Hill got injured). But that didn’t stop him from setting a dubious record this season, something pointed out…

  7. Warriors working to leverage future assets to get back future asset they already leveraged

    May 26, 2012, 8:18 PM EDT

    Warriors logo

    The Warriors are in a hurry to rebuild, apparently. After trading Monta Ellis and Ekpe Udoh to get what they considered to be their franchise defensive center, a must for Mark Jackson’s plans since he was hired, the Warriors shut down their entire team and tanked so hard in order to keep their draft pick.…

  8. NBA Draft Player Preview: Austin Rivers

    May 25, 2012, 3:26 PM EDT

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Lehigh v Duke

    This is the first of PBT’s review of players in the 2012 NBA draft, we will be running these regularly up through draft day, with plenty of other content to follow. Austin Rivers is not a guy sliding under the radar in this draft — he’s the son of former NBA player and Celtics coach…

  9. Kevin Durant, LeBron James head All-NBA Teams

    May 24, 2012, 2:39 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    Here’s the problem with nitpicking the All-NBA teams — there are no bad players on any of the first three. You can argue if you want (and as I would) that LaMarcus Aldridge deserves a spot on the third team more than Carmelo Anthony or Dirk Nowitzki, but that doesn’t make the guys on the…

  10. Point guards Irving, Rubio lead NBA All-Rookie team

    May 22, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving reacts after a turnover during the second quarter of the Cavaliers NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Cleveland

    The NBA is evolving into more of a point-guard league — if you can’t touch a quick ball handler on the perimeter they are going to carve up any defense. With the rules enforced as they are, Tony Parker can’t guard Tony Parker. So no shock that the two guys on top of the NBA…

  11. USA Select team officially announced, no surprises

  16. Where in the world is DeAndre Jordan?

    May 12, 2012, 9:04 AM EDT

    Clippers' Jordan reacts during Game 6 of their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff series against Grizzlies in Los Angeles

    Last summer, the Golden State Warriors were looking for a big man to put next to David Lee and forced the Clippers hand — would the Clippers match a four year, $48.2 million contract offer for DeAndre Jordan? How badly did the Clippers want to keep Jordan next to Blake Griffin? Badly enough to match…

  17. Stephen Curry calls latest ankle surgery a “relief”

    May 8, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Stephen Curry wanted to get back on the court this season, but five weeks of rehab on his recurring sprained ankle could not get it done. He had to go back under the knife. Curry didn’t talk with the media through the rehab process or after the surgery in April, that was until last weekend…

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    This summer, the United States will send it’s best 12 best basketball players to London to represent our nation in the Olympic Games. Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban hates the idea, and he’s not alone. This summer will be the 20th anniversary of the original Dream Team and for some the bloom is off the rose.…

  21. Scott Skiles to return as Milwaukee coach next season

    May 1, 2012, 6:47 PM EDT

    Scott Skiles

    Maybe you can’t picture Scott Skiles effectively coaching a backcourt of Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings, but Herb Kohl can. And he’s the owner. The guy writing the check. So they are going to do it. Skiles will be back for another season as the Bucks head man, reports the Journal-Sentinel. Scott Skiles confirmed in…

  23. Five reasons these are not last year’s Spurs, they are contenders

    Apr 26, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Last season, the Spurs won 61 games, went into the playoffs as the top seed thought of as contenders, then got unceremoniously bounced in the first round because they could not handle the big, athletic front line of the Memphis Grizzlies. This season, the Spurs are again entering the playoffs as the top seed and…

  24. David Lee becomes third Warrior to have surgery this week

    Apr 26, 2012, 4:35 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    If the Warriors are healthy next season they are going to be dangerous. But it’s a big “if.” David Lee will have surgery this week to repair a torn abdominal muscle, reports Matt Steinmetz at CSNBayArea.com. Lee had already sat about the Warriors previous seven games due to the same injury. Lee averaged 20 points…

    When you pay good money for an NBA ticket, you can only hope the game ends with a dramatic… goaltending call? That’s what happened to Warriors fans. With the game inside 8 seconds left and tied 81-81, Golden State’s Charles Jenkins‘ drove the lane and put up a layup that Gustavo Ayon cleanly blocked. The…
