GIF: Andrew Bogut Goes Around The Back, Throws Perfect Outlet For Dunk

Andrew Bogut

For his first two seasons in a Golden State Warriors uniform, Andrew Bogut was little more than defensive anchor. It speaks to his immense value in only such a role that his impact on the Warriors still loomed so large despite his skills on the other end being wholly underutilized. But Steve Kerr has rocked the boat in the Bay, and the all-court playmaking prowess that the former number one pick showed so frequently as a Milwaukee Buck has finally returned. Watch Bogut grab the loose ball, go around his back, and throw a perfect, 65-foot, baseball-style outlet to Andre Iguodala for the flush. Read More »

Excellent Rookie Hazing At Warriors Open Practice

Mitchell Watt, Sean Kilpatrick, Aaron Craft

Rookie hazing in the NBA is light years from the aggressive forms of torture rookies have undergone in the NFL, but it’s still a rite of passage however tame. The Golden State Warriors, especially, seem to delight in silly costumes and forced renditions of songs. It happened again last night during their open practice with rookies Aaron Craft, Sean Kilpatrick, Mitchell Watt and James McAdoo rocking mortifying getups while singing such hits as “I Can Show You the World” in front of thousands of their fans at Oracle Arena.

Video: Watch Stephen Curry Light Up The Clippers

Matt Barnes, Stephen Curry

First, the Clippers didn’t dress Blake Griffin or Chris Paul for last night’s game against the Warriors. Second, Stephen Curry had six turnovers to match his six assists in the 125-107 stomping of LA. Third, Steph dropped 27 on the “BGCP3“-less Clippers, by going 4-of-5 from the beyond the arc in a little over 30 minutes of action. Fourth, lists don’t accurately show how casually Steph can dominate a game like he did last night. Read More »

GIF: Dwight Howard Spins For The Towering Slam

Dwight Howard

Before last night, Dwight Howard had yet to suit up in a Rockets uniform during preseason action. He only played 16 minutes in the first half during his first time out against the Warriors Sunday night, but an athletic dunk in the pregame layup-line, and a silky spin move and slam on Ognjen Kuzmic during the game, should make Rockets fans breathe easy after questions about his health have kept him out of preseason action since training camps opened.

Video: Sick 2014-15 Warriors Promo “Built This Town”

Harrison Barnes

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 »

Klay Thompson Gets Fouled On Made Three-Pointer, Counts To Four

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.
