The Golden State Warriors play in a traditionally competitive
conference, but that doesn't mean it's been easy for fans to identify a clear team rival. Most Warriors lovers and sports
writers say that the Bay Area team is poised for a great rivalry with either the nearby Sacramento Kings or the LA Clippers.
Of course, some fans like to say that the Warriors are also a rival of the LA Lakers. No matter which rivalry you choose to
follow, you're sure to enjoy fast-paced action and classic West Coast basketball when you head to a Golden State Warriors
In recent years, the Warriors have focused on building strength in their roster and bringing up
a young team that can rival any experienced NBA crew. The centerpiece of their strategy has been Steph Curry, one of the most
exciting players in the NBA. Center David Lee and forward Andre Igoudala have joined the roster to round out a fast-playing,
hard-winning team. And don't forget big man Andrew Bogut, who relentlessly defends the hoop. If you've never seen a Warriors
game live, you don't know what kind of athletic feats you're missing out on. The Warriors are truly a joy to watch as they
fly up and down the court at Oracle Arena in their fast, breakaway offense.
Founded in 1946 as the
Philadelphia Warriors, the team made its way to California in 1962 and was renamed the Golden State Warriors in 1971. The
team won the first-ever championship in the Basketball Association of America (BAA). Fans have been cheering their team on
in the same stadium for decades, and the friendly, laidback feel of the Bay Area is always evident in and around the arena.
Hall of Fame Players
The Golden State Warriors team has been home to some of the best players in the NBA and boasts
some 18 hall of famers as former players. Perhaps the most well known is Wilt Chamberlain. Every true NBA fan knows that Wilt
was a legend in his time. Other hall of famers include Rick Barry, Chris Mullin, Ralph Sampson, Jamaal Wilkes and coach Don
Did you know that Warriors star Steph Curry is the son of former NBA star Dell Curry? Curry
isn't the only famous Clipper though. Legend Wilt Chamberlain is still the all-time scoring leader for the Warriors and former
head coach Al Attles has the most wins in team history, with a total of 557 between 1970 and 1983. Of course, long-time fans
know that the Warriors were located in San Francisco before moving to their permanent home in Oakland; however, it won't be
long before the Warriors return to San Francisco with a stadium scheduled to be finished in 2017.
With a fresh, new team and revitalized program, the postseason prospects for the Golden State Warriors have improved significantly
since the early 2000s. Since their initial founding, the Golden State Warriors have won two NBA championship titles, one in
1956 and another in 1975. Since they were renamed the Golden State Warriors in 1971, the team has gone to the playoffs 12
times and has advanced to the second round nine times.
