Golden State Warriors Tickets for Sale
One can assume that the Golden State Warriors are entering this season with a championship-or-bust attitude, as they should be. Last year they were unstoppable for the majority of the season, and then went out and signed Kevin Durant, one of the best players of this generation during free agency. The Warriors’ 2016 roster is perhaps one of the most talented-on-paper ever to be assembled, but how will it translate to the court? Can all these offensive super stars coexist on one team without it being too much to handle? Stephan Curry has been lights out, Klay Thompson is arguably the best shooting guard in the league, and Draymond Green is capable of defending all five positions singlehandedly.
No doubt Golden State is looking to build on their historic 73-win regular season from last year, however finish what they started this season. Barring major injuries, we should see these guys back in the big dance in 2016-2017. With a stacked team and bench, and a solid coach in Steve Kerr, fans will want to secure their Golden State Warriors tickets early to ensure they don’t miss any of the on-court excitement, because it should be a fun ride!
The Golden State Warriors are an intriguing NBA team. They played in Philadelphia from 1946 to 1962 and dominated with Paul Arizin, Neil Johnston, and Wilt Chamberlain. Ultimately, the Warriors moved to the West Coast, first finding a home in San Francisco. The team eventually crossed the bridge to play in Oakland and became the Golden State Warriors.
In both San Francisco and Oakland the team enjoyed building the roster around Rick Barry. A frustrating star, he could score at will and helped the team win its third championship (the previous two came in the pre-Wilt years in Phiily). Barry could not play forever though. He could not alter his game any more than he already had (he began his career as a scorer and rebounder and became a ball handler and outside shooter) and he had to give into retirement in 1980.
Post-Barry, the Golden State Warriors were a struggling team. The franchise could not seem to find the right talent to challenge the likes of the Lakers or, in many seasons, post a winning record. This changed in the late 1980s. By then the Sleepy Floyd-era had faded and the Run TMC era had begun. Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond, and Chris Mullin embraced Don Nelson’s focus on offense and the Warriors became a consistent playoff participant.
The lack of defensive effort prompted a coaching change by the middle of the 1990s. The roster changed too, but the locker room became an acrimonious place. Despite the talent of Latrell Sprewell and Chris Webber, incidents forced the front office to move these players and accept futility. Today the team is counting on the phenomenal shooting of Stephen Curry to lead the team back to the postseason consistently and, perhaps, to the NBA Finals.
