It’s been a fantastic regular season for the Golden State Warriors as they had the best record in the NBA, the probable MVP in Stephen Curry, the probable Defensive Player of the year in Draymond Green and the probable coach of the year, Steve Kerr. However, these awards mean nothing in the grand scheme of things if they don’t win the championship.
As the reward for having the...

Lee has backed up Draymond Green this season.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Golden State secured the No. 1 overall seed two weeks ago and has been at the top of the NBA standings all season. New Orleans needed an all-out effort through its last game against San Antonio to claim the Western Conference's final playoff spot.
Expectations for both teams now are just as stark.
The Warriors are hoping the Pelicans are a prelude to their championship...

A couple of weeks ago we posted a story about Draymond Green trolling Doc Rivers with the manufacturing of some “Cool Story, Glenn” gear. Bay Area News Group’s Diamond Leung, who is a Golden State Warriors beat writer, originally reported on that story.
On Thursday, Leung chatted with “Inside the NBA’s” Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith to discuss the upcoming Warriors...
Since opening day, the Golden State Warriors have been a genuine work of art. So ESPN commissioned artist Heather Rooney to create a surreal life like illustration featuring the Dubs core four of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Bogut and Draymond Green. The piece was then captured in a time-lapse video and narrated by Ryen Russillo.

It is time to face facts. The Golden State Warriors have established themselves as the best team in the NBA. A year ago, most believed that the Warriors lacked the necessary components needed to be a contender in the Western Conference, let alone a championship title. Now fast forward to today. They were recently crowned the 2015 Pacific Division Champions, an achievement that has...
There are rivalries that are just that—rivalries in name only. And then there are real rivalries. Teams and players that just don’t like one another. It makes for a fun outing when real rivalry games take place.
In the NBA, there is no more heated rivalry than that between the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers.
So when a player speaks out publicly about an individual...

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green doesn’t hold back, and makes his opinion known on any topic, says his coach and teammates.
From Jonathan Abrams of Grantland:
“He talks **** to everybody,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.
“He’s talking to us, himself, the coach, the other bench,” Klay Thompson said.
“If you’re having...
Last week, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green began selling merchandise on his website that said “Cool Story, Glenn” on it. The joke started after Green was bumped by Los Angeles Clippers guard Dahntay Jones during a postgame interview earlier this month. When asked about the bump, Green took a shot at Jones for being...Read More
He is the defensive backbone to the NBA’s best team. He is the stretch four forward that every team desires. He is to defense what Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are to shooting three pointers. Save the time and expedite the resources because the 2014-2015 Defensive Player of the Year award should already have Draymond Green’s name engrained on its plaque. Through inimitable...
You may recall that earlier this month Draymond Green and Dahntay Jones got into a little tiff over “a bump.” It seemed stupid, but the Clippers and Warriors hate each other, so it naturally progressed into a thing to add more fuel to a rare NBA rivalry.
Doc Rivers didn’t think much of it, and low key chastised Draymond, saying Jones’ bump was too “violent.”
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) It has been a season full of firsts and fun for the Golden State Warriors, rewriting the franchise record book and rediscovering what it means to be a winner.
A few milestones still remain - one for the season, and one for all time.
Both can be reached Friday night when the Warriors (58-13) visit Memphis (50-22) in a matchup of the Western Conference's top teams...

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) One goal down, still more to go.
That's the message the Golden State Warriors are giving after winning the Pacific Division for the first time in 39 years. Now they're trying to secure the Western Conference's No. 1 seed and homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs for the first time since the defending champion Warriors did it in the 1975-76 season.

The NBA’s power conference is without a doubt the Western conference. It has sustained a category of excellence for a better half of the decade. With the exception of the short run the Miami Heat endured, the NBA usually comes to a close with a Western conference squad hoisting the Larry O’Brien trophy. Even with the Eastern conference adding Kevin Love to a star-studded Cleveland...

At of 7:52 PM PST tonight, Jeremy Lin officially entered himself into the race for the 2014-15 Defensive Player of the Year award.
Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating, but this swat was still kind of awesome.
During tonight’s Lakers game against the Golden State Warriors, Lin chased down Draymond Green on the break and somehow managed to block...
Draymond Green, “the heartbeat of the Golden State Warriors” as Steve Kerr calls him, is an upcoming free agent. Is he worth a max contract or is he just a system player like some anonymous scout said last week?
The answer is yes to both of the above questions. Green is a max player for the Warriors’ team and he is a product of their system. How is this possible? Both of these...

After the Golden State Warriors handily beat the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday, Draymond Green was giving a postgame interview when Dahntay Jones decided to give Green a shoulder bump.
