With old clips and new, this Golden State Warriors montage video will remind NBA fans the Dubs again seem poised to make another leap. With a new coach, but few other additions, it’ll be on Steve Kerr to get them into the playoffs for the third straight year, and if management has their way, something beyond just a hard-fought first-round series.

This Epic Stephen Curry Mix Will Make You Believe In The Golden State Warriors

One Dime contributor recently ranked Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry as the league’s top point guard. While we don’t necessarily agree, that’s certainly a debatable assessment – Curry is clearly a franchise-level talent. Steph took his game to new, rare heights last season and is primed for even bigger things in 2014-2015, realities driven home in this epic new highlight mix. Read More »

Andre Iguodala Says Klay Thompson 3-Point Attempts Are Comparable To Layups

Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson

It’s not even debatable anymore: Corner three-pointers and attempts from the restricted area are the most valuable shots in basketball. The Houston Rockets have based an entire offensive identity on this line of thinking to great success, and every defense in the league’s foremost goal is preventing those specific tries. While the NBA has obviously come around to understanding the value of shots from deep, though, most players and teams would surely opt for an uncontested layup as opposed to dishing to an open teammate waiting beyond the arc. But the Golden State Warriors aren’t most teams, and Klay Thompson isn’t most shooters. Read More »

Warriors Center Andrew Bogut Is Now Shooting Free Throws Left-Handed

Andrew Bogut

Andrew Bogut used to simply be a poor free throw shooter. Before a gruesome right elbow injury late in the 2010 season that’s left him unable to fully extend his shooting arm, the Aussie center shot a meager but hardly horrible 60.1 percent from the line. In the four seasons since, Bogut has quietly devolved into one of basketball’s most ineffective players from the charity stripe. He’s connected on only 44.2 percent of his free throw attempts since 2010-2011, and his struggles reached a nadir last season with the Golden State Warriors when Bogut made a hideous 34.4 percent of his tries. Finally fed up with his wholesale labors from the line, Bogut is trying to fix them in 2014-2015. How? By shooting free throws left-handed, of course. Read More »

Last night’s exhibition game between the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers is the blogging gift that keeps on giving. Well, as long as you aren’t a Lakers fan. Before Ronnie Price threw a shoe at Andre Iguodala or Stephen Curry buried a long trey in Kobe Bryant’s face, Klay Thompson was fouled on a made three-pointer and sarcastically counted to four in celebration.

Report: Warriors May Start Harrison Barnes, Bring Andre Iguodala Off Bench

Harrison Barnes

We didn’t bat an eye when the Golden State Warriors started Harrison Barnes instead of Andre Iguodala to open their rout of the Los Angeles Lakers last night. Preseason is the time to experiment, after all, and Iguodala suffered a broken nose in his team’s previous exhibition against the Lakers on Thursday. Giving the youngster some confidence by playing with the starters and Iguodala some rest was a prudent decision by first-time head coach Steve Kerr, we thought. Then came news, however, that not only was Iguodala active and playing without restrictions, but Kerr went with Barnes in his place to get a look at a potential change in his regular season rotation.

The Warriors again blew out the Lakers in their exhibition game last night, exposing LA’s dire need for some defense. Kobe Bryant took on the challenge of guarding a red-hot Stephen Curry at one point midway through the third quarter. He couldn’t slow him down, either, and gave him some props after Steph shook him off for the hoop. Read More »

Kobe Bryant Praises Klay Thompson: “He Has The Whole Package”

Kobe Bryant, Klay Thompson

Maybe agent Bill Duffy should send Kobe Bryant a care package? Duffy is currently stuck looking for a max deal for his client Klay Thompson, with the two sides $2-3 million apart with three weeks left to sign an extension. Kobe witnessed Klay first-hand during Golden State’s 120-105 preseason win last night at the Staples Center and had nothing but high praise for the young shooting guard after the game. Read More »

Video: Kobe Bryant Strips Steph Curry For The Jam

Kobe Bryant

The Lakers defense looked totally disorganized during Golden State’s 120-105 win last night, but Kobe Bryant again proved he’s back in form with 10 first-quarter points including this sick fadeaway. While the team defense struggled, Mamba showed off his quick hands by stripping Stephen Curry late in the first and taking it for the breakaway slam. Read More »
