    Golden State could be one of the winners if the Sacramento Kings head to Anaheim — they would be the only Northern California team. Sacramento baseball fans grow up rooting for the Giants. That could be the Warriors, they could grab future generation of NBA fans in California’s capitol. Warriors owner Joe Lacob — in…

    Last week, new Golden State owner Joe Lacob said that Stephen Curry was not untouchable. For the right offer, they would consider moving him.

  3. Warriors owner willing to make big moves

    Indiana Pacers v Golden State Warriors

    Things are better in the Bay Area this year. And not just because San Francisco has a new restaurant called Sushirrito (sushi served in burrito form — don’t laugh, it’s good). Things are also better with the Golden State Warriors. Well, not the Warriors winning games part, that’s still going pretty poorly overall. But the…

    Steve Kerr’s reign as general manager in Phoenix receives a big fat “I” for “Incomplete.” He orchestrated one of the worst trades of the year in 2008 when he acquired Shaquille O’Neal for the run-and-gun Suns, and chose a horrific coach in Terry Porter. But after that, he acquired smart, high-energy guys who worked hard…

    Last season: 26-56, which is kind of the record you end up with when you don’t play much defense. And Don Nelson had stopped caring about defense, or seemingly coaching half the time. But as much as that, it was an injury-ravaged season that kept the win total that low. Head Coach: Keith Smart, who…

  6. Writing had been on wall for Don Nelson for months

    Sep 24, 2010, 10:10 AM EST

    Don Nelson is a revolutionary coach. Whatever you think of how it ended, the man was a game changer. He helped make it okay for Dirk Nowitzki to be a power forward on the wing. You don’t become the all-time winningest coach in NBA history on a fluke. He had a career — from playing…

  7. Report: Signals are Warriors will remove Don Nelson, promote Keith Smart

    Sep 15, 2010, 10:18 AM EST

  9. New Warriors owner may keep Don Nelson for a "test drive"

    Aug 10, 2010, 1:27 PM EST

    Don Nelson sits in Maui, collecting the $6 million he is owed, and waiting for a phone call from Warriors incoming owner Joe Lacob. And more and more, it seems like that call may say, “Hey, come on back and coach the team a little longer.” That’s what the San Jose Mercury News columnist Tim…

  10. Don Nelson waits on a call from Golden State

    Aug 6, 2010, 8:40 AM EST

    One does not win more games than any other NBA coach in history if one is not smart. Don Nelson is smart, he knows what is happening with Golden State. He knows there is new ownership, he knows there are plans to let him go. So he is not coming back to the Bay Area…

  11. Don Nelson may be back for one final season

    Aug 2, 2010, 9:29 AM EST

    The impression — even from new incoming owner Joe Lacob himself — is that there will be big changes for Golden State.

  12. What we know about incoming Golden State owner Joe Lacob

    Jul 29, 2010, 8:43 PM EST

    Golden State fans have proceeded under this premise: Any owner not named Al Davis was going to be better than Chris Cohan. On that scale, Joe Lacob (and partner Peter Guber) qualifies. But what kind of owners will they be? Lacob, who will be the front man and was a minority owner in Boston, did…

    Jul 28, 2010, 11:46 AM EST

  14. Don Nelson wants to coach Warriors for one more season. Fans shudder.

    Jul 16, 2010, 10:27 AM EST

  15. Warriors are finally sold, but not to Larry Ellison

    Jul 15, 2010, 4:05 PM EST

    UPDATE 4:05 pm: Tim Kawakam of the San Jose Mercury News got this statement from Larry Ellison: “Although I was the highest bidder, Chris Cohan decided to sell to someone else.” Could still be some fireworks to come.
