Sam Sorkin

Staff Writer

Sam has been a huge sports fan from the age of two, when he first picked up a basketball and started watching Michael Jordan. He's been in attendance for numerous games of high magnitude - from the World Series to the Rose Bowl, to Barry Bonds' 756th home run, to last season's Warriors playoff run. While he loves all of basketball, due to living in the Bay Area Sam has grown up a huge fan of the Warriors. That has come with highs (Stephen Curry/2013 playoff run and the future) and lows (The Chris Cohan era, Anthony Randolph, Vlad-Rad, Corey Maggette). Sam is currently a writer for SB Nation's Golden State of Mind and has also contributed to ESPN True Hoop Network.
