Originally the Warriors were slated to pick at No. 26 overall. That pick, along with guard Malcolm Lee, was reportedly acquired from the Timberwolves for cash...
Last February, the Golden State Warriors made headlines when the NBA announced that the team would be wearing short-sleeved jerseys in a few games during the regular season. Reaction to the news was overall pretty mixed (a poll on the San Jose Mercury News site revealed that 52% of fans didn’t like the look), but some just plain hated it.
