Jack Winter is a 24 year-old Bay Area import. Having grown up in Kansas City without an NBA team to root for, his Warriors fandom is complicated. He loves help defense, extra passes, and the additional efficiency of corner three-pointers. After recently relocating from San Francisco to Oakland, he's an avid and tireless defender of the East Bay. He contributes to ESPN TrueHoop sites Hardwood Paroxysm, Magic Basketball, and HoopChalk, and encourages you to reach him via Twitter (@armstrongwinter) or e-mail (john.armstrong.winter@gmail.com).

First Quarters, Defensive Rebounding and Harrison Barnes

The Warriors are bleeding.  Since capping a five-game winning streak on February 2nd to go a season-high 13 games above .500, Golden State has lost 10 of 13 games and finds itself facing doubts not felt since this season's early stages.  The Warriors are still four games ahead of the ninth place Los Angeles Lakers and seem a relatively safe playoff bet, but the sure-thing optimism gleaned from January is lo ...

Santa Cruz Warriors Travis Leslie Wins D-League All-Star Game MVP

Playing his first season for Golden State's Development League affiliate Santa Cruz Warriors, sometimes second-year guard Travis Leslie gets overlooked.  He's shared the Santa Cruz backcourt infrequently with Kent Bazemore as a result of the rookie receiving multiple assignments and call-ups, and Jeremy Tyler – who played 42 games for Golden State in 2012 and has seen action in 20 contests already this seas ...

Shots at the Rim and from Deep Doom the Warriors

The Warriors lost their fifth straight game last night, a 116-107 demoralizer to the same Houston Rockets team that thrashed them for 140 points last week.  If the defensive woes that have plagued Golden State over the last week were merely born out of lack of effort or focus the tide should have turned yesterday.  Houston, after all, humiliated the Warriors last Tuesday and shoves and words were exchanged ...

Assessing the Warriors’ Defensive Woes

Offense isn't the problem.  The Warriors have averaged 97.8 points per game and shot 43.4% from the field in their last four games, a stretch of consecutive convincing losses that's reason for concern heading into the All-Star break.  Both numbers are below Golden State's season-long average by a considerable margin, as you'd expect, but the point remains: the team's 98.3 offensive rating on this awful road ...

Finding Jarrett Jack’s Real Value

There's a growing belief that the Warriors go as Jarrett Jack goes.  Well, maybe that's a bit extreme; Steph Curry and David Lee are still this team's best players, and the play and impact of Andrew Bogut remains this season's biggest "swing" factor.  But Jack's Sixth Man of the Year worthy season is going unnoticed no longer, and as he continues to rack up big individual numbers his value to Golden State f ...

Klay Thompson’s Blog-Inspired Progress

  December 28th: "...[Klay Thompson]'s been a flat-out disappointment this season and the statistics – both raw and advanced – bear that out." January 8th: "Thompson's individual effectiveness is limited to when he's on the floor without Steph Curry." Well that was depressing.  Twice taking an objective look at Klay Thompson in the last six weeks, I came away unimpressed with his play this season and questi ...
