Golden State Warriors

  1. Anthony Morrow: Dead-eye shooter, post-apocalyptic Warrior, coveted free agent

    Jul 1, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    The Warriors have long been something of a basketball wasteland; even if it’s entertaining to watch Monta Ellis, Stephen Curry and the like run amok in Don Nelson’s post-apocalyptic world, all of their wins are empty, and their losses sobering reminders of where they are and where they’ll never go. So naturally, as basketball fans,…

  2. Gay, Watson, Morrow latest to gets qualifying offers

    Jun 30, 2010, 6:52 PM EDT

    Qualifying offers keep rolling in as the deadline approaches. Not surprises, but offers as teams make sure they have a chance to hang on to the players they like. The offers make players restricted free agents, meaning the team can match any offers that come in. For Memphis, that means extending a qualifying offer Rudy…

  3. Not everyone is opting out: Stojakovic and Radmanovic staying in their bloated deals

    Jun 28, 2010, 11:23 PM EDT

    It only seems like everyone is opting out of their contracts right now. There are some guys out there riding the gravy train of bad general manager decisions, guys who are perfectly happy to keep their current bloated deals for next season. Meet Peja Stojakovic and Vladimir Radmanovic. Stojakovic is owed $15.3 million next season…

  4. What's in a draft bust?

    Jun 25, 2010, 1:20 PM EDT

    Among the 2010 draft class, there will be stars. There will be successful role players with long, fruitful careers. There will be early risers, late bloomers, movers, shakers, and minimum salary makers. And of course, there will be the busts. The bust is perhaps the oddest of all draft day phenomena. It’s essentially a product…

  5. Corey Maggette and Chris Douglas-Roberts aren't perfect, but could be just what the Bucks need

    Jun 23, 2010, 12:02 PM EDT

    It’s been said that if given the right touches and opportunity, most NBA players can be transformed in 20-point scorers. Move such a claim within the limits of reason however (come on, is any team really going to give Jarron Collins 35 shots a night to hit that mark?), and the pool of players in…

  6. Larry Riley denies that he's shopping Anthony Randolph

    Jun 19, 2010, 12:42 PM EDT

    Anthony Randolph has been rumored to be on the Warriors’ trading block from pretty much the very second he arrived in Oakland. Even if the jury’s still out on whether or not an actualized Randolph is a realistic possibility, his combination of athleticism and skills would make him an appealing prospect to just about any…

  7. Don Nelson staying in Maui, not involved in Warriors draft preparation

    Jun 8, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Don Nelson is in Maui right now. For the record, I wish I were in Maui right now. I’d be a much better blogger in Maui. Or at least I’d have the best tan of any NBA blogger. Which really is a pretty easy honor to achieve. But I am not the coach of an…

  8. Larry Ellison combines bid with existing Warrior minority owners to form super majority

    Jun 6, 2010, 1:14 AM EDT

    Larry Ellison — the richest man bidding on the Warriors, the man who would be the richest owner in basketball, the man who could write the biggest check tomorrow — may win the Warriors by bringing in partners. Specifically, existing partners in the team. A group of investors who currently own 20 percent of the…

  9. Report: Timberwolves and Warriors discuss Anthony Randolph trade

    Jun 4, 2010, 8:58 AM EDT

    Anthony Randolph is young and has a world of talent and potential. That doesn’t mean Don Nelson is going to play him unless he has to, but the talent is there. Other teams recognize that talent and would like to have it. Like the Timberwolves, who have talked to Golden State about an Anthony Randolph…

  10. Four finalists left bidding for Golden State Warriors

    Jun 2, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    The possible sale of the Golden State Warriors is moving along quickly. Probably a lot more quickly than Don Nelson would like, as he is likely toast as coach once the sale is done. Associated Press is reporting that there are four “finalists” bidders left in the running. Larry Ellison, the founder and CEO of…

  11. Could the Warriors really be worth over $400 million?

    May 28, 2010, 1:40 PM EDT

    The Warriors continued their tired march as one of the most poorly run organizations in the NBA this season, with their 26-56 record nothing more than a reflection of the team’s misfortune from top to bottom. There is undeniable talent on the Golden State roster — had Steph Curry started rolling in November rather than…

  12. NBA Draft: Who's dealing? A look at tradeable picks

    May 23, 2010, 1:48 PM EDT

    A significant side effect of the lottery is that teams who don’t necessarily need or want a nigh impact player at various positions get slotted in draft positions to acquire such a player. It also means that teams see an opportunity to cash in on a high impact young player by moving the pick for…

  13. Warriors draw plenty of interest from bidders, including Larry Ellison, but no magic numbers

    May 19, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    The good news: There are a lot of people who want to buy the Golden State Warriors — including the insanely rich Larry Ellison. The bad news: None of them offered the $400 million plus that current owner Chris Cohan was hoping to get for the team. Ellison, the owner of Oracle computers, put in…

  14. NBA Draft Lottery: Could the NBA's top pick be moved before the draft?

    May 18, 2010, 1:38 PM EDT

    Teams just do not trade the top pick in the NBA Draft. Doesn’t happen. It has been 17 years since the NBA’s top overall pick was traded before the draft. The fact is elite talent is just too hard to come by in the NBA, you need elite talent to win big and if you…

  15. Today is the day the Warriors owner finds his team not worth as much as he hoped.

    May 17, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    I’m sure you knew this already, because you and your drinking buddies had been working on your submission over the weekend: Today is the first day to submit formal bids to buy the Golden State Warriors. This is where wishes meet reality. Like when you put a home up for sale and you work with…

  16. Another surgery for Kelenna Azubuike

    May 14, 2010, 11:51 AM EDT

    The Golden State Warriors’ — remember them? — myriad injuries this season may have been the central mechanism for the D-League’s incredible success in ’09-’10, but they also denied us the privilege of watching a few interesting players do their thing. Kelenna Azubuike is one of those guys. ‘Buike may not be incredibly dynamic, tremendously…

  17. Former Golden State Warriors owner Franklin Mieuli dies at 89

    Apr 26, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    There is one banner that matters hanging over the basketball court at Oracle Arena, Golden State’s 1975 NBA Championship banner. That was Franklin Mieuli’s. The former owner of the Warriors for more than two decades was the architect of that team. Mieuli died of natural causes Sunday at the age of 89. David Stern told…

  18. Don Nelson is the all-time winningest coach in NBA history

    Apr 7, 2010, 10:58 PM EDT

    You know, the script says I’m supposed to drop some sort of snarky reference to the lack of defense of the Golden State Warriors, and really any team in Don Nelson’s past. The script says I should make a crack about the Timberwolves (and trust me, I want to, it’s easy, and fun!). But the…

  19. Rookie of the Month versus Rookie of the Year

    Feb 27, 2010, 4:57 PM EDT

    Stephon Curry has had himself quite the month. 21 points, 5.4 rebounds, 7.6 assists, 1.6 steals. Wow! He’s played so well in fact, that some are starting to say he deserves some run for Rookie of the Year. Which is kind of like saying OK Go deserves consideration for a lifetime achievement award. Nice run,…

  20. Don Nelson bonds with his young players. At the bar. Of course.

    Feb 20, 2010, 5:20 PM EDT

    There’s a bit of a double-standard involved in this story. You see, if Larry Brown were to get together with his young players and take them out for a beer, we’d be falling all over ourselves with how awesome it is that Brown is finally trying to bond with his younger players. If Phil Jackson…

  21. Trade Deadline: Warriors turn down trade, save Grizzlies from themselves

    Feb 17, 2010, 9:19 PM EDT

    Tim Kawakami of the Mercury News is reporting that the Warriors turned down a trade offer from the Memphis Grizzlies of O.J. Mayo and contract filler for Monta Ellis. Now, on the face of this, it appears to be a pretty natural rejection of a reasonable offer from Memphis. But OJAM is younger, has no…

  22. Could the Cavs be turning to Maggette as third option?

    Feb 16, 2010, 9:38 AM EDT

    It would be a stunning non-move if the Cavaliers failed to make any sort of trade at the deadline. They’ve been linked to just about everyone, with Antawn Jamison and Amar’e Stoudemire their top option depending on who you talk to. Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ massive expiring contract is their big chip, and they’re aggressively pursuing an…

  23. Larry Riley can't find a sucker

    Feb 10, 2010, 12:49 AM EDT

    There’s a line in the poker flick “Rounders” to the effect of “Listen, here’s the thing. If you can’t spot the sucker in the first half hour at the table, then you ARE the sucker.” Perhaps Larry Riley of the sinking ship S.S. Warriors should give that flick a gander. A quote from a recent…
