Celebrating and appreciating the Warriors’ 16-0 record

Throughout this entire streak, I think about how long I have been a Warriors fan. I couldn’t even believe that this team I cheered for has accomplished this great record.

The Warriors were the laughing stock of the league. Bad draft picks and bad coaching. Then just last year, it all finally clicked. It happened all so fast and now starting this season, the Warriors have just set the NBA record for best start to the season.

Having seen all the ups and downs of the Warriors from years past, I still can’t grasp the idea that this is the same team I cheered for. But watching this team now and how they’re playing, I’m still on “Cloud 9.” This is like a dream I still don’t want to wake up from. And maybe I’m OK accepting it as that.

It’s that beautiful. It’s that wonderful. I will hold on to this forever.


What the Warriors got right and wrong with their ‘The City’ throwbacks

The Warriors wore their “The City” throwbacks on Tuesday night and it looked great. In fact, anytime they wear this uniform, it’s beautiful.

But there were some things I didn’t like about it. As I mentioned before, the logo on the front looked terrible due to the fabric of the patch. Because of that, it looked like a different color from the actual jersey. And it varied from the angle of the lighting.

But why are they required to wear a patch instead of the stencil of the previous designs?

The Warriors are bringing back ‘The City’ throwbacks but there is one big problem

We had known for months that the Warriors would bring back “The City” throwbacks for this season. On Thursday they officially announced it, sharing photos of the uniform.

In my opinion, this is the best-looking uniform in league history. The crest in the front and the cable car in the back both look phenomenal.

So in theory, I should be excited about this, right? Well, yes I am. But there is one problem with this throwback. Take a closer look at the crest. Instead of the screen-printed stencil of the circle on the jersey, it’s an entire patch that’s stitched on.

It’s NBA opening night and I don’t know how to celebrate it

For years, the Warriors have not even sniffed the playoffs, so I never cared much about the opening night hoopla where a championship team raises their new banner and celebrates.

But this year is different. The Warriors are champs and they will have that celebration tonight at home. I wish I could be there. But I will watch it from home.

However, the idea of this celebration has yet to sink in. Are the Warriors really champs and are they really going to celebrate with a new banner? I think now knowing that the target is on the Warriors’ back is real. But with all eyes watching the Warriors, I still haven’t wrapped my head around it.

I can’t wait to see the celebration. I can’t wait to savor the moment. And I can’t wait for the Warriors to try to do it again.

Possible look at Warriors’ jersey for their championship ring and banner ceremony

When the Warriors players receive their championship rings during the banner ceremony in their season opener, they are expected to wear something different on their uniforms for the game.

According to the Warriors’ team store site, this will be what the team has in mind. They will be wearing their home jerseys but will have a Larry O’Brien trophy patch on the right side. Additionally, the team logo on the front and the player number on the back will be outlined in gold.

The trophy patch was commonplace on team jerseys during the finals but last season, the NBA logo was placed above the player’s name and the NBA Finals patch as placed in that same location. This design gives us a glimpse of what the jerseys might have looked like if the league did not make the change.

Memories of Jason Richardson as he retires

I remember when the Warriors drafted Jason Richardson. As a Michigan State fan, I was proud that the Warriors got this guy. I didn’t know if he would be the answer to helping the Warriors end their playoff drought, but he provided many theatrics.

Everyone remember his dunk contest wins and they should. Those were the highlight for a Warriors team that didn’t look too good. But I still believed he can be great for the team because he was so talented. He just needed some help.

I still own a Richardson jersey and he was the star on the team for many years. Even when the Warriors finally made We Believe happened, I was so stoked for him. He was a loyal man to the Bay and I was ecstatic to finally see him taste glory. This is my favorite moment.

Sadly he would be traded and injuries would derail his career. But he will always be a part of the Bay Area. He will always be a fan favorite. He helped us believe. He made me believe.

Thanks, J-Rich!

New Warriors rendering animation of new arena in San Francisco

** I know this video was uploaded last week but this is new to me, so there.

Check out the new animation right here. It really reminds me of Staples Center, which is kind of the idea the Warriors are looking for with a high-end arena with all the amenities and shops and grandeur presentation.

I still want the Warriors to remain in Oakland. But I have to face the inevitable.

But the inside looks real nice though.
