Harrison Barnes Should Stop Giving A Shit

  Steph Curry don’t give a shit. Draymond Green really don’t give a shit. Klay Thompson don’t give two shits. Harrison Barnes? He gives too many shits. Basketball players have to not give a shit to reach their potential. This is a scientific fact. I know because it happened to me. And anything that happens to me is a universal truth for all.

Before we move on to the Steve Kerr era, it seems necessary to take one last quick look at Mark Jackson’s tenure with the Warriors. Like just about every Warriors fan, I was initially excited by Jackson’s hire in 2011, even without a second of coaching experience on his resume. Through ...

Inside The Warriors: Meet Jordan Crawford

After scavenging the league for backup point guards, the Golden State Warriors ended up shipping Toney Douglas out of town and addressed the issue by adding Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks.

Inside The Warriors: A Closer Look At The Streak

Ultimately the Golden State Warriors succumbed to the human flaw that is fatigue and failed to make NBA history.
