The Warriors may have the best record in the NBA, but that doesn't mean the Celtics were ready to get pushed around in their game against the championship favorites over the weekend.
Brandon Bass certainly agrees with this statement. Bass went for 15 points and 12 rebounds against Golden State, but it would be hard to argue anything he did was better than the poster he made with...
In the Golden State Warriors 26 point come-back victory versus the Boston Celtics on Sunday night there was an interesting development as Coach Steve Kerr only played 7 players more than 19 minutes. This usually never happens, is this a sign of things to come?
It was very strange to see Kerr go completely away from David Lee and Leandro Barbosa in the second half. Even though those...
The Golden State Warriors have the best record in the NBA and Draymond Green is enjoying the ride as much as possible.
Green will be a restricted free agent and there has been speculation that either David Lee or Andre Iguodala will be traded in the offseason to help the Warriors' salary situation.
“I’ve said it multiple times this year, we know how good we are,” Green said...
Golden State Warriors stud guard Steph Curry does this dribbling drill prior to every game. And I’ll venture to say that there are less than 1,000 people on Earth that can do this.
What a show-off.
Wow. I mean, you cannot blame our fearless warriors (hold on, that's their opponent's name, oh well) for blowing up a lead against the Golden State, but holy crap they gave the league and basketball fans all around the world when they built up a lead of 26 points. Seriously, the Celtics, Boston "yeah we've had 22 players on our roster so far this season, so what, we have a great...

Tyler Hansbrough and Festus Ezeli were ejected from Friday’s Raptors-Warriors game after getting into a scrap towards the end of the third quarter when Golden State was winning by a blowout.

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is known for his shooting ability, especially beyond the arc. But his ball-handling skills are just as amazing, as showcased in the video below.
Curry is once again lighting it up this season, averaging 23.7 points per game with a field-goal percentage of 48.
Despite only scoring 18 points during Thursday night’s loss to the Cavaliers...
Imagine Golden State Warriors swingman Andre Iguodala saying “catch me if you can like the gingerbread man”. As he drops Matthew Dellavedova to the hardwood with a mean crossover, before hitting David Lee with a behind-the-back pass for a dunk. It makes this highlight at least 47% awesomer.

Golden State Warriors guard Andre Iguodala may be 31 years of age, but he can still shake opposing defenders.
Matthew Dellavedova was his latest victim when the Cavaliers and Warriors squared off on Thursday night.
Iguodala crossed up Dellavedova so bad, the Cavalier actually attempted to tackle the Warriors guard. It didn’t work, and he fell down.
Iguodala made the highlight...
Certain regular season games just mean more. The Cavaliers have been on an absolute roll, but many wanted to see them square up against a fellow title-contending team out of the Western Conference as a more recent measuring stick. Well, Thursday night at the Q, fans received just that as the NBA’s best team at the moment and for most of the season, the Golden State Warriors, came...

You know an athlete is big time when he/she gets to hang with the President of the United States. Following his ridiculous 32-point, eight-assist performance against the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry spent part of his Wednesday hanging out with President Obama.
Curry’s trek to the White House was in large part due to his work...

Does Tim Duncan look like the kind of guy who would be bothered by some trash talk? If your answer is “no,” then you would be right. And we have Draymond Green as proof. Chris Ballard wrote a cover story for SI on the Golden State Warriors, and one of the nuggets is about Green’s...Read More
Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson has been known to shoot the lights out, but ESPN’s Sports Science proves Thompson doesn’t need lights at all to score at all. Watch Thompson nail 8/10 three-point shots in the complete dark thanks to his uncanny place cells.

So about that Stephen Curry guy. Fresh off winning the three-point contest during NBA All-Star weekend, the Golden State Warriors MVP candidate was doing his thing on Friday night in a dismantling of the defending champion San Antonio Spurs.
It started with this.

And finished with this.
After receiving an early technical, Curry got THAT look in his eyes. And...
The Golden State Warriors have the best record in the National Basketball Association at 42-9. For the better part of two decades, Golden State has been a franchise where dreams went to die and winning had no place. The turmoil was so bad that when Chris Mullin had his number retired in March 2012, owner Joe Lacob was loudly booed.
Fast forward three years, and both team and market...
Having the best record in the NBA at 42-9 like the Golden State Warriors puts them in an ideal position for continued success. Even though they have the best record in the NBA does not mean this team is without flaws, but as a whole this team is championship caliber.
The Warriors’ first flaw is they do not have a consistent low post scorer. When Andrew Bogut is healthy he can score...

Despite being the best team in the Western Conference, the Golden State Warriors have some issues emerging that make their prospects going forward a bit dicey. At the top of the list is a trade for a back-up big man. Will the Warriors do this, or are they set with their ways?
When healthy, Andrew Bogut is one of the best rim protectors in the NBA. David Lee and Marreese Speights...
