Kevin Durant and the Warriors: How did we get here?

How would you explain Kevin Durant joining the Golden State Warriors to someone who fell asleep in 2012 and just woke up? I was sitting in the stands on Tuesday at Oracle Arena — having dropped a semester’s worth of book charges on tickets — to watch Kevin Durant play his first game in his […] Kevin Durant and the Warriors: How did we get here? - Blue Man Hoop - Blue Man...

Kevin Durant says he never told Russell Westbrook he was staying in OKC

Kevin Durant did not appreciate a recent report that said he lied to his former Oklahoma City Thunder teammates about his free agency plans, so he decided to respond. On the TrueHoop podcast this week, ESPN Thunder insider Royce Young said Durant had been telling people he was returning to OKC.

Golden State Warriors: 5 reasons the Warriors are better than Team USA

The Golden State Warriors are better than Team USA and here’s why. The Golden State Warriors have quite possibly assembled the greatest roster to ever set foot on a basketball court.

Draymond Green: ‘Me and LeBron are friends’

As Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green prepares to help Team USA to gold this summer in Rio, the enigmatic big man took time out of his busy schedule to discuss some recent on-court incidents.

Durant: Being cheered by Oracle Arena crowd ‘felt a little weird’

Kevin Durant got a taste of his new home playing for Team USA on Wednesday night, and he admitted that it was all a bit strange. Team USA beat China 107-57 in an exhibition game at Oracle Arena, with Durant scoring 13 points in his new stomping grounds. The crowd gave him a standing ovation when he was introduced, and was greeted by cheers even when he emerged for warmups. “It...

Basketball Jonez' diary: When the Warriors kept Stephen Curry instead of trading for Amar'e Stoudemire

The Warriors dodged a bullet. There's a lot of new blood following the Warriors lately. I mean, I get it. Back to back Finals appearances, a Larry O'Championship trophy, and a small ball lineup that would probably beat last season's Eastern Conference All Star vote leaders (Lebron, PG, Melo, Wade, and Lowry) in a head to head matchup. The Dubs play beautiful basketball on the...

Durant told Westbrook he was returning to Thunder?

Russell Westbrook is said to be angry over Kevin Durant leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder, and that could have something to do with Durant lying to his face about it. During an episode of ESPN’s TrueHoop Podcast this week, Thunder reporter Royce Young said Durant told Westbrook he was staying in Oklahoma City — after the season ended, no less. “Three weeks ago, Kevin Durant’s...

Draymond Green talks about relationship with LeBron James

Draymond Green delivered a kick to LeBron James’ groin in Game 4 of the 2016 NBA Finals that may have changed the course of sports history. Without it, the Warriors probably would’ve beaten the Cavs in the game that followed, and would’ve been crowned back-to-back champions. And James, once again, would’ve suffered another loss in a championship series. Instead, Green was...

Warriors offseason roster guide: Where does Golden State stand now?

As the Warriors offseason reaches its dead months in August, we look at where the roster currently sits. August — NBA's quietest month.

2015-16 Warriors season review: Steve Kerr won COY, but had a bumpy ride

We look back at Steve Kerr’s successful but painful season. The 2015-16 Golden State Warriors made history by winning 73 games. In case you hadn’t heard, that was quite a lot. The team won so many games, that Steve Kerr won the NBA’s Coach of the Year award, even though he missed 43 games to start the season (52.4% of total games played in the regular season).

KD, Draymond Green booed in L.A. during Team USA exhibition

Just how much animosity is there against Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors? Both Durant and Draymond Green were booed in Los Angeles while playing for Team USA. They may have been representing the red, white, and blue, but even national pride was not enough to make fans forget about the NBA offseason. When Kevin Durant left Oklahoma City for Golden State to form the best...

Curry ‘disappointed’ that All-Star game moved from Charlotte

Stephen Curry was probably excited that his home town, Charlotte, was set to host the 2017 All-Star game. With him playing high school ball there, returning to play in the game probably would’ve brought some nostalgia. Unfortunately, the All-Star game was moved because of the state’s House Bill 2, which effectively takes away anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay...
