The first week of the 2018-19 NBA season is nearly in the books. It’s been a fun week across the league, from the Golden State Warriors outrageous ring ceremony on opening night, to the wild saliva-fueled brawl between the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets on Saturday.
A fresh season means fresh features on Golden State of Mind, and so this is the introduction to a new column titled Social Saturday. The inaugural iteration is a Sunday version, for a variety of nuanced reasons that definitely don’t include me forgetting to post this yesterday.
Either way, Social Saturday/Sunday will just be a collection of tweets and Instagram posts from members of the Warriors, so that you can relive the week through the eyes of the team.
Canon Curry’s first game
In the preseason finale, Canon Curry - Ayesha and Steph Curry’s third child - got to see his MVP dad play for the first time.
Time to get those rings
Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and the rest of the squad were stoked to get their 2018 championship rings.

Would “Holy Toledo” have been more hip? https://t.co/AvAj9d6mLu— Steve Kerr (@SteveKerr) October 17, 2018
In the second game of the season, Jonas Jerebko was the unlikely hero. Against the Utah Jazz - the team that waived him this offseason - Jerebko had a huge game, including the game-winning tip-in.
The excitement - and revenge - of the play was not lost on Jerebko’s new teammates.
They didn’t want ya Jonas.— klay thompson (@KlayThompson) October 20, 2018
Fight! Fight! Fight!
Andre Iguodala and Jordan Bell had some thoughts on the melee at the Staples Center that saw the ejections (and soon to be suspensions) of Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo, and Brandon Ingram.
Fur sure they put cameras in that back lot by now...— Ai (@andre) October 21, 2018

The rookie is all about positivity
Jacob Evans III had a tough preseason, and hasn’t made it onto the court yet this season. But that isn’t impacting his great attitude.
Just need all positive energy around me. Nothin else.— ️Jacob Evans III (@JacobEvans_1) October 19, 2018
