The NBA world is still on hiatus due to the COVID-19 outbreak and it doesn’t look like it will be returning anytime soon.
That shouldn’t stop us from having some fun though.
The Golden State Warriors have had their fair share of great players come through the Bay Area and some colorful characters as well.
I’d like to hear from the community who your favorite Dubs player of all time is? It could be one of the icons that played for the Warriors, like Steph Curry or Chris Mullin, or a player that you felt a personal connection to.
Go in-depth and explain why you chose that particular player. I figure this is a good way to have a fun basketball discussion without the seriousness of how Bob Myers is going to improve the team next season.
Sound off the in the comments below and let’s have some fun with it!
Onto some links:
Monta Ellis spent just over six seasons with the Warriors before being traded to the Milwaukee Bucks. The 34-year-old talked to Wes Goldberg of the Mercury News and opened up about how he felt when he found out about the deal.
Dubs ownership and management reportedly had issues with Mark Jackson’s choice of assistants coaches. Jackson was let go prior to the 2014-15 season and replaced by Steve Kerr, but if he wasn’t, we might have seen Jeff Van Gundy join his staff. (h/t Drew Shiller of NBC Bay Area)
Warriors’ minority owner Mark Stevens made a dumb move when he pushed Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry during Game 3 of the 2019 NBA Finals. The Athletic’s Tim Kawakami writes that Stevens’ attempts to apologize to Lowry have went unanswered.
We know the Dubs will have a top-five pick at the 2020 NBA Draft. Head coach Steve Kerr reportedly had a European scouting trip planned to check two of the top prospects before the pandemic hit, and no, Deni Avdija wasn’t one of them. (h/t Alex Didion NBC Bay Area)
