  1. Mike Malone to become head assistant in Golden State, not Los Angeles

    Jun 7, 2011, 1:55 AM EDT

    Michael Malone

    The Warriors’ hiring of Mark Jackson now makes slightly more sense. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, former Cavaliers and Hornets defensive coordinator Michael Malone will be Mark Jackson’s lead assistant in Golden State. Mike Brown, who Malone coached under before, wanted Malone on his staff, but the Warriors’ new ownership would not be…

  2. Warriors hire Mark Jackson as head coach

    Jun 6, 2011, 9:42 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson Popcorn

    The Golden State Warriors have announced that they have hired former player and current television analyst Mark Jackson as their head coach. The 46-year old Jackson had a long and distinguished career in the NBA as a player, winning the Rookie of the Year award in 1988 and being named an All-Star in 1989. He…

  3. Report: Mark Jackson is the frontrunner for Golden State

    Jun 6, 2011, 2:37 PM EDT

    mark_jackson_250_080306

    People who have met with new Warriors owner Joe Lacob have described him as an out of the box thinker. Which is pretty much a cliché statement in and of itself at this point, but we’ll go with it. Because it sounds like he is close to doing something very out of the box, according…

  4. Is Golden State thinking about trading Monta Ellis?

    Jun 1, 2011, 1:14 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Golden State Warriors

    Let’s just start this out with the needed disclaimer — this all starts because of speculation from a newspaper columnist, an idea that got picked up and ran with all over the Web Wednesday morning. (Tell me again how bloggers start all the rumors?) Understand it all started with a guess that may be off…

  5. Report: Mark Jackson among Warriors coaching finalists

    May 30, 2011, 12:27 PM EDT

    mark_jackson_250_080306

    Would you hire a man who says “Mamma, there goes that man” as your head coach? A guy who says “give me better offense any day” every game? The Golden State Warriors are apparently considering it. Former player and current ESPN/ABC analyst Mark Jackson is a finalist for the Warriors head coaching job, according to…

  6. Stephen Curry has surgery on right ankle

    May 26, 2011, 8:17 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry was battling ankle issues at the end of the season. And those can linger — once the ligaments stretch out in an ankle they can take a long time to get right and it’s easy to aggravate the injury. So Curry had surgery to tighten up his ankle ligaments, according to Matt Steinmetz…

  7. New Warrior owners offer fans a contract

    May 24, 2011, 7:10 PM EDT

    Warriors Contract

    The Golden State Warriors are under new management, and the new ownership team is looking to make a good impression with fans as quickly as possible. They recently sent out a contract to potential season-ticket holders, which makes the following promises: 1. The Warriors will make the 2012 playoffs. If they do not, ticket prices…

  8. Why yes, Monta Ellis did cover his torso with a tattoo of a tree

    May 24, 2011, 6:24 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis tree tattoo

    There it is, in all of its glory. Let it never be said that Monta Ellis doesn’t love his family, nature, and getting tattoos. This is certainly a head-turner of a tattoo, but I think the most ridiculous Golden State off-season torso tattoo in recent memory is still Stephen Jackson’s hands holding a gun in…

  9. Jerry West will have his say in Golden State

    May 24, 2011, 5:55 PM EDT

    Jerry West

    When it comes time to pull the trigger on a trade for the Golden State Warriors, that will not be Jerry West’s finger. But before that trade goes down West will have had his say on the matter. That was the takeaway from Jerry West’s introductory press conference as part of the Golden State Warriors.…

  10. Warriors met with Mark Jackson for head coaching gig

    May 22, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Yahoo! Sports reports that former NBA player and current ESPN analyst Mark Jackson interviewed for the head coaching position for the Golden State Warriors shortly after Keith Smart was let go. Jackson may get another interview, though Mike Brown remains the leading candidate. Jackson’s experience in… broadcasting certainly makes him an attractive candidate considering how…

  11. Report: McHale frontrunner for Rockets coaching job

    May 21, 2011, 4:59 PM EDT

    Assistant coach Kevin McHale of the Rook

    Honestly, after his last stint as general manager than coach in Minnesota, I didn’t think we’d ever see Kevin McHale walking the NBA sidelines as a coach again. But he has interviewed everywhere this spring (recently with the Warriors) and was one of the three finalists for the Houston Rockets job. Now he is more…

  12. Jerry West takes on consultant position with Warriors

    May 20, 2011, 12:37 PM EDT

    Image (1) jWest-thumb-250x166-18358.jpg for post 3706

    UPDATE 12:37 pm: It’s official according to CSN Bay Area, the Warriors have confirmed that Jerry West has joined the organization, with the title of “executive board member.” Consultant is still the best term to understand the role. West can be a strong and persuasive voice, but he also is deft at the politics of…

  13. Wojnarowski: Warriors hold “informal” meeting with Kevin McHale

    May 19, 2011, 8:11 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v New Orleans Hornets

    Here’s the report, courtesy of Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski: CHICAGO – Kevin McHale met with Golden State executives Larry Riley and Bob Myers to discuss the Warriors’ head coaching job, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Sources called the meeting “informal” and it could turn into a more serious sit-down later with team executives and ownership.…

  14. Mike Brown “intrigued” by Warriors coaching job

    May 18, 2011, 7:27 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavilers v Boston Celtics

    Here’s the story, courtesy of CBS.com’s Ken Berger: CHICAGO – Mike Brown finds the Warriors head coaching job “intriguing,” according to a person who said Wednesday the former Cavaliers coach has had conversations with Golden State officials about the opening. Brown, who was fired after last season despite averaging 54 wins over five seasons in Cleveland, has yet to…

  15. NBA draft lottery: Who needs to win this most?

    May 16, 2011, 10:09 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    Your team isn’t in the NBA draft lottery unless it needs help (or you used to do trades with Isiah Thomas). Everybody in it needs to win it. Especially this year, where the drop off from All-Star to “maybe he can be a rotation guy in a couple years” to “we’re hoping he can develop”…

  16. You know who’s NOT coaching the Warriors? Jerry Sloan or Jeff Van Gundy.

    May 14, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Warriors’ head coaching gig is kind of an interesting mesh of issues. You’ve got a management that has pledged to provide a new coach with defensive personnel, but there’s still a roster full of guys who don’t fit that description. There’s certainly talent, but not necessarily a cohesive unit, and few experienced veterans. There’s…

  17. Report: Mike Brown favored to become Warriors next coach

    May 13, 2011, 8:05 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavilers v Boston Celtics

    Interesting note in ESPN’s Ric Bucher’s chat Friday, when a Golden State Warriors fan said Brian Shaw and Chuck Person were the front runners to be the next head coach in the Bay Area. Your sources are half right. Chuck and Brian are serious about getting the job and will be interviewed. But all signs…

  18. Golden State to interview Lakers assistant Brian Shaw

    May 13, 2011, 10:31 AM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    Brian Shaw remains the most likely guy to replace Phil Jackson on the Lakers bench. Getting the endorsement of Kobe Bryant matters. But if the Lakers go another direction (hello Rick Adelman) Shaw is going to have options. The Golden State Warriors got permission to talk to Shaw, according to Matt Steinmetz of CSN Bay…

  19. Warriors to give Mike Brown, Dwane Casey interviews

    May 10, 2011, 8:58 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavilers v Boston Celtics

    The Golden State Warriors have started their interview process and apparently they are thinking about a more defensive mindset. The Warriors are bringing in former Cavaliers coach Mike Brown and former Minnesota head coach (and current Dallas assistant) Dwane Casey to interview, according to CSN Bay Area (Marc Stein of ESPN had it first). Also…

  20. Stephen Curry wins NBA’s Sportsmanship Award

    May 5, 2011, 3:35 PM EDT

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is your winner of the Joe Dumars Trophy, the one given to the NBA’s Sportsmanship Award winner. It seems fitting, Curry is one of the players in this league never seems ruffled. Of course, maybe that’s easier when you’re a jump shooter and not driving into the trees, but…

  21. Warriors not bringing back coach Keith Smart

    Apr 27, 2011, 1:35 PM EDT

    Keith Smart

    UPDATE 1:35 pm: The Warriors have decided to let Keith Smart go as coach, according to CSN Bay Area. Smart had been the head coach of the Warriors for one year, but had spent the previous seven as an assistant. This isn’t a shock — owner Joe Lacob wanted to put the team on a…

  22. Warriors set front office up for future, which leaves coach in limbo

    Apr 16, 2011, 11:10 AM EDT

    Keith Smart, Larry Riley

    Last summer, before he even took control of the team, new Warriors owner Joe Lacob started to make changes — Don Nelson was out, Keith Smart was in for a year (it was a one-year contract) and they went out and got David Lee. The Warriors got 10 games better. But now Lacob is starting…

  23. Owners taking their time with coaches on hot seat

    Apr 15, 2011, 6:05 PM EDT

    Kurt Rambis

    The coaching carousel has not started spinning yet. We keep expecting the music, we hear who is on the hot seat or likely gone, but nothing yet. Because owners are taking their time, reports Marc Spears at Yahoo. Take Kurt Rambis in Minnesota. (Please.) Everyone knows he’s expected to be let go, but so far…

  24. The decision on Keith Smart is no decision. For now.

    Apr 11, 2011, 10:40 PM EDT

    Keith Smart Stephen Curry

    What to do with Keith Smart? We know what Keith Smart wants, but Warriors owner Joe Lacob is going to take his time in making a decision he told our man Matt Steinmetz at CSN Bay Area. Warriors owner Joe Lacob indicated during a brief conversation on Monday that an announcement on Smart won’t be…

  25. Keith Smart thinks Keith Smart should keep his job

    Apr 11, 2011, 3:42 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Golden State Warriors

    Keith Smart’s job was in danger the moment he signed a contract without a guaranteed second year. Not that he had a lot of choice. And Smart knew if he did well enough he would be back. But there are plenty of people in the Bay Area that do not think he has done near…
