Fan campaign leads Warriors to bring back beloved broadcaster

Klay Thompson Wonders How Blake Griffin Can Flop So Much

With the regular season about to wrap up, it seems likely that Griffin’s Clippers will take on the Golden State Warriors.

Warriors' Klay Thompson draws raves as elite shooting guard

Warriors head coach Mark Jackson is wont to spew hyperbole, so when he claimed last month that Klay Thompson is "the best two-way shooting guard in the world," it was widely written off as rhetoric. But with Thompson's ever-growing game having taken even more shape in April, Jackson's claim doesn't seem quite so preposterous. Granted, this isn't the 1990s...

How dangerous can the Golden State Warriors be in the playoffs?

The Golden State Warriors were considered as championship contenders prior to the start of the 2013-2014 season.

Without Bogut does Golden State have a chance?

News from the Golden State camp yesterday that starting center Andrew Bogut will be out indefinitely with a fractured rib is certainly not good news for the Warriors as they get set to embark on a playoff run. While his 7.3 points per game can certainly be made up in other areas, the ten rebounds and 1.8 blocked shots is something the Warriors are perhaps going to have to work around...
