Interviews with prominent Golden State Warriors players, coaches, media

Preaching Coaching

Mark Jackson likes to move. Perhaps this is why he's away from a studio, away from the announcer's chair. The game compels him to bounce up and down the sideline as though invisible giants are volleying him about with tennis rackets. Wait, did I say "racket" when I meant "racquet"? Anyway, that reminds of just how much yelling Mark Jackson does as he patrols his area. If coaches do this in spurts, Jackson's ...

Lacobapalooza: Interview

Lately, the Warriors owner has been open like Biblical interpretation (Is Job’s story really just a predictive metaphor about Warriors fans?). Over the course of our interview, I think Lacob spoke more words than Cohan's ever said--to anybody. Here's what I culled from a talk that went over the salary cap... On the rumblings about another (possibly Ellison-owned) Bay Area NBA squad: ESS: There’s been talk o ...

Joe Lacob Interview: Biedrins Conversation

When I met Warriors owner Joe Lacob, I did so with roiling insecurities that could melt stomach butterflies. I’m poor for reasons I get, he’s impossibly rich from a business beyond my grasp. At the handshake, I noticed Lacob’s gleaming watch. The sparkling time keeper snickered at my 97' Escort station wagon--the car with a super-glued side-mirror and unglued transmission. The rich are different than you an ...

Let Biedrins Foul

(Interview snippet) ESS: “Jeff Van Gundy has advocated for adding a seventh foul. Would you endorse that policy?” Andris Biedrins: “Oh ya...(chuckling) that would be great! That would really help me out!” ESS: “What about an eighth?” (Andris stops laughing. He pauses, and in a manner almost wistful, cites a sport that doesn’t really exist: AB remembers Summer League, the surreal place where victory is worth ...

Interviews: Lee and Biedrins fight for a ball

I have a theory on why Andris Biedrins and David Lee aren’t shooting with their usual efficiency, though--as you'll see in the quotes below--the two bigs aren't backing it. My thesis: Lefties Lee and Biedrins are colliding on tip-ins from the same basket side, causing bunnies to go netless. Both players are accomplished offensive rebounders who grew up in systems where they were singular in that aptitude, s ...

Practice?: Curry’s ankle brace, D-Wright’s pump fakes

Stephen Curry practiced with an ankle hugged by what looked like Samsonite suitcase scraps. He was mobile and fluid in shooting drills. There's no commitment to a Friday start, but that's what my non-existent money would be on. Since Curry hasn't played in two games, questions were ankle-centric: ESS: You have the brace right now, do you plan on playing with that in the future? Stephen Curry: I hope to take ...

Open Practice: Talking with Lee, Curry, & Smart

What I took from Open Practice at the O: 1. The Warriors have fewer shooters and feel they must compensate with greater ball movement. 2. They still want to run a fast pace. 3. Way too many people showed up. Scientists should study the Bay Area's unrequited NBA love affair. My goal in questioning Keith Smart's crew was to flesh out just how it’s different this time. Every team will chirp about getting bette ...
