WARRIORS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Does Jordan's Russell Westbrook ad throw shade on Kevin Durant?

If you ask Oklahoma City Thunder fans, Kevin Durant ran from a challenge when he jumped ship and signed with the Golden State Warriors this summer. A new Jordan ad featuring Russell Westbrook appears to capitalize on that sentiment. Some run, some make runways. #AJXXXIhttps://t.co/tPpJ2HANsa — Jordan (@Jumpman23) August 26, 2016 It’s no secret that Westbrook is bitter about...

Warriors’ switch to 95.7 The Game was the right move

In a surprising move on Thursday, the Golden State Warriors switched radio flagship stations from KNBR 680 to 95.7 The Game.  Growing up, listening on sports on the radio in Bay Area automatically meant turning the dial to KNBR 680, the 50,000 watt juggernaut and the flagship station of just about every local team. But in recent years, the FM station […] Warriors’ switch...

How will you remember the Warriors' historically bittersweet 2015-16 season?

GSOM's new writers introduce themselves by sharing their memories from the 2015-16 season. Not too long ago, someone brought up the question of whether I'd rather the Warriors have Durant or back-to-back titles...and I realized that I don't think I'll ever quite get over that moment when Stephen Curry through a behind-the-back pass out of bounds in the fourth quarter of Game 7 of...

Why the Golden State Warriors need Kevin Durant

The Golden State Warriors achieved unprecedented success in the 2015-16 season, torching the opposition to earn the best regular season record in NBA history and a spot in the NBA Finals for the second year in a row.
