Iguodala makes NBA All-Defensive First Team – maybe under Kerr we’ll see what he can do as a two-way player

The Golden State Warriors received a bit of semi-unexpected good news today, as Andre Iguodala made his first ever NBA All-Defensive First Team. Iguodala’s reaction: Oh so now you see…

Jackson’s firing changes Curry’s mindset from Warrior-4-life to … well, let’s wait and see

I wasn’t able to attend Stephen Curry’s press conference today, although I caught the formal presentation of his KIA Community Assist Award on Warriors.com. It’s an honor Curry absolutely deserves, as he’s one

Damon Bruce rants against BASG, the internet and A’s fans (but mostly A’s fans)

I guess I kind of knew this was coming, since you can’t question Damon Bruce on Twitter without him getting offended and lashing out. That’s why it’s funny that one of

BASGcast (Ep. 94): What Steve Kerr means for Golden State

The Warriors pulled off getting Steve Kerr as head coach after firing Mark Jackson, and Bay Area Duck Guy and Bay Area Sports Guy talk all about it. Plus, what’s

It’s not *if* Lacob’s Warriors will make their biggest move yet, it’s *when*

The Golden State Warriors aren’t just a team Kevin Love reportedly likes as a potential destination, they’re a squad that also appears to be a perfect fit. Love and Stephen Curry would be an explosive pair,

What Warriors think Kerr will bring that Jackson didn’t: Humility and assistant coaches with experience

The beginning of Tuesday’s press conference that introduced the new head coach of the Golden State Warriors was your standard Fitz-fest, a celebration of Steve Kerr’s basketball lineage. The main (only?) newsworthy component

Eric Byrnes: 2013-14 was David Lee’s “most miserable basketball season”

Current/former(?) KNBR host Eric Byrnes went on with Tom Tobert and Ray Ratto yesterday afternoon, and in the course of some Warriors smalltalk dropped a “juicy, juicy, juicy” (as Byrnes

Want a Harrison Barnes autograph? Just follow these six little rules …

The Black Falcon went to Facebook today to announce a way for fans to obtain his autograph, but only during a three-month window. From Harrison Barnes’ Facebook page: Surprise! Autographs

Jim Barnett on Warriors coaching change: “I think they made the right decision, quite frankly”

Apparently Mark Jackson’s problems with communication went further than his relationships with the front office and certain assistant coaches. Jim Barnett went on KNBR’s “Murph and Mac” show this morning,

Warriors steal Steve Kerr away from Phil Jackson and the Knicks

I guess this means you can ignore my post about the Warriors’ search for a coach from earlier in the day that included all those weird dating innuendos. Then again,

Warriors’ coaching search is off to a rough start, but there are plenty of other fish in the sea

On the day Mark Jackson was fired, Bob Myers met with reporters and made it sound as if replacing their former head coach with someone better would be a piece

Jermaine O’Neal wouldn’t mind returning to Warriors, but not necessarily as a player

Jermaine O’Neal played for six franchises over a 17-year period before signing with the Golden State Warriors, and after just one season with the team he sounds like someone who’d like to

Mark Jackson goes on the sports talk radio offensive

Yesterday was Joe Lacob’s opportunity to explain the Warriors’ position, and he used over 3,000 words in doing so. The two quotes that stood out, at least to me: “This is

Tommy Lasorda on V. Stiviano: “I hope she gets hit with a car.”

Tommy Lasorda was in West Palm Beach, Fla. on Tuesday, collecting an honorary degree from Northwood University with former Villanova basketball coach Rollie Massimino. No big whoop. Tommy and Rollie, getting

After taking a gamble on Mark Jackson three years ago, Joe Lacob bet on himself today

I’m in the venture capital business and have been for 25 years. We do a lot of diligence and a lot of assessing of things. We do our homework. We’re

Stephen Curry loves Mark Jackson, but that might not be enough to keep him around

Everyone knows the story by now. Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob and Mark Jackson were unable to agree on a contract extension after the Warriors made it to the

Warriors’ playoff ride was shorter than planned, but it was certainly wild

There weren’t any buzzer beaters, but this was the best series of the first round. Just the basketball was good enough, but add in all the subplots (highlighted by the Donald Sterling story

Blake Griffin crying

Warriors notes: Jackson & Green take high road re: Griffin, flop-talk with Iguodala, O’Neal/Ezeli updates

Blake Griffin might not be the best villain, since by all accounts he’s a pretty decent guy away from the court. But as an object of scorn for opposing fans,

Warriors force Game 7 with 100-99 win, in a game/brawl tailor-made for Draymond Green

It wasn’t a pretty game. The players on both teams looked like they were finishing a marathon in tattered shoes. Neither squad shot 40% from the field or made a high
