Could these be the new uniforms for several NBA teams?

The Warriors could be adding ANOTHER new uniform for this season.

Take this as pure speculation. The information from this post could be true. But without any confirmation, take it for what it is. I’m inclined to believe that this could be likely real.

But for the sake of discussion, let’s assume these are true. Let’s take a look at them and try to guess what will be the changes that these teams will take on with their new uniforms for the season.

Steve Kerr to join Warriors as new head coach

There it is.

The Warriors decide that Steve Kerr is the right head coach for this team going forward. Sadly, I am not so sure about this. I want to be excited, but I am worried.

Kerr is just like Mark Jackson. Former NBA guard who also did broadcasting before making the Warriors his first head coaching job. Granted, Kerr has front office experience but this is still a big step into the unknown for both sides.

Keeping Mark Jackson is the right thing to do for Warriors

The Warriors took the Clippers to the limit under Mark Jackson.

I don’t know the ins and outs of why the coaching staff was going through changes this year. But from what I have seen from the outside, Mark Jackson is a good coach and deserves to remain as the Warriors’ coach.

There were rumors about his departure at season’s end and I wasn’t sure where that came from. If it’s internal, then I can’t really have much say with that. But if it’s purely on production, the team would be crazy to let him go. Players have voiced their support for him and I hope the team keeps him.

Golden State considering to be renamed San Francisco Warriors

Are the Warriors going to call themselves the “San Francisco Warriors?”

Golden State Warriors president and CEO Rick Welts wants to know if the fans would be OK with the idea of the team calling themselves the San Francisco Warriors again.

In an interview with ESPN, Welts says he wants to ask the fans to see if a name change would be something they would favor.

“We’re very curious what our fans think of that,” Welts told ESPN.com. “I couldn’t imagine making that decision in the very near future, but we definitely want to see what our fans prefer.”

This comes following the news of the team purchasing land in Mission Bay in San Francisco for a new arena. Also, the team had previous played in San Francisco and went by that name from 1962-71. But since 1971, they were known as the Golden State Warriors.

Did Stephen Curry get fouled on the final shot?

There was contact, but I agree with the no call.

Looking at the replay, yes there was contact from Chris Paul on Stephen Curry’s hip. Did it alter his shot? Probably. But I don’t think at that moment you can call a foul. I don’t even think in real time you could see a foul there. It looked clean.

The problem you want to complain about is the shot selection. Instead of going for a drive to tie the game, Curry settled for a tough three.

Instead of trying to take the shot, the Warriors could have thrown the ball back to the in-bounder Andre Iguodala for a shot.

Oh good, the Warriors’ plan to play in a pier-based arena that could sink has been scrapped

Good.

When I first heard of this idea of playing between Pier 30-32, I thought it was silly. I am not a scientist, but I was pretty convinced that the arena would sink. The location is bad. Now we have news that they are scrapping the idea.

They are moving their plans that aren’t directly at the water. It’s still close, but at least the fear of it sinking won’t cross my mind.

But of course, I would prefer that they stay where they are. There is a major inconvenience that will come if they play in San Francisco. The travel and public transportation would be a nightmare. Plus, the prices of tickets will surely price out fans like me.

Just have them stay in Oakland, please.

Not happening.

Being a Bay Area sports fan while living in Los Angeles

Bay Area > LA.

I don’t care for the Los Angeles sports teams. I’m from the Bay Area. That’s where my allegiances are. Even though I live in Los Angeles, I stay true to my roots. If the Lakers lose, good. If the Kings lose, good. If the Angels lose, even better.

With the San Jose Sharks and the Golden State Warriors both in the playoffs facing their Southern California rivals, it’s harder for me to mind my own business about my team because I’m surrounded by these Los Angeles fans.

Even before the playoffs, I am constantly hearing about people talking about the Lakers. Then the Clippers talk started to rise some. I don’t care.

Warriors coach Mark Jackson tweets during halftime

It’s halftime right now between the Warriors and Lakers game and head coach Mark Jackson sent out this tweet.

Using his iPhone, Jackson tweeted out this message of inspiration (maybe). I am not sure if this was a scheduled tweet or an accidental tweet. Maybe someone is tweeting on his account. Apparently it’s happened before.

Either way, fans are reacting to it.

Stephen Curry wants to rid of ‘Short Sleeve Saturdays’

Stephen Curry has voiced his displeasure about the sleeve jerseys when they debuted last season. Other players have voiced it this season too. But Adidas and the NBA continue to push it and it appears that it might be around for a while.

Since the Warriors have won 21 road games, the last one coming off a frantic comeback win over the Blazers, Stephen Curry was asked about whether or not the Warriors should switch out their home white jerseys and wear their road duds for their next home game.

“Short Sleeve Saturdays should be gone,” Curry said (2:13 mark in above clip). “And we should wear our blue roadies for the rest of the year.”

Did Klay Thompson join Twitter just for a promotion and to boost merchandise sales for the Warriors?

The Warriors are having Social Media Night again and part of the night will feature these new shirts that feature the Twitter handles of the players.

It’s a great promotion and these shirts are cool. However, there was one thing that caught me by surprise and it was the timing of this and Klay Thompson’s “return” to Twitter. I was unaware that Thompson was ever on Twitter. In fact, he hasn’t been on Twitter until he miraculously revived it two days ago.

Prior to the All-Star break, Thompson did not have a Twitter account. The Warriors acknowledged this as part of their lineup announcement all season long.
