Warriors unveil new Chinese New Year jerseys

I expected this to happen but I was unsure how the Warriors would go about it. The Rockets already have a Chinese New Year jersey coming out as well but this one by the Warriors is a little curious to me.

Wouldn’t it make more sense to have it be red or yellow instead of slate gray?

Here are some things that are worth noting. Warriors is written out in Chinese on the front. On the sleeve (yes, the stupid sleeves) is an image of a goat, which is the animal for the upcoming new year. Side panels look great and the trim is pretty nice. They will wear it on February 20, the day after the new year and three more times later in the season.

I’m all for this really and the Chinese population in the Bay Area is strong. And I am glad they didn’t add “el” or “los” or some kind of cultural cop out like the NBA has in the past. But I just don’t like the color. Great idea. Not so great execution.

Warriors Twitter account humbles the Clippers Twitter account

In recent years, team Twitter accounts are starting to have some personality. The LA Kings have done it the best and other teams are starting to follow suit.

With a recent tweet by the Clippers for fan engagement, the Warriors stuck their head in the conversation and ended up making the Clippers look like fools.

It all started with this:

Warriors are that good

That’s 11 straight wins. That’s the best record in the NBA right now. They could win it all!

11/11: Why my favorite number is 11

B.J. Armstrong was one of my favorite players of all time.

I can never remember when Veterans Day is. It was finally when someone told me that it is on November 11 every year. I am grateful for all those who have served and now I have something easy to help me remember it.

But also, the number 11 happens to be my favorite number of all time. Some may guess that it might have to do with Yao Ming but I picked the number before Yao ever made it to the big time.

I was a young Warriors fan at the time and I really enjoyed watching the Bulls win. When B.J. Armstrong came to the Warriors, I thought the team was going to be great since they were going to get some of the good vibes Armstrong got when he played with Michael Jordan. Since the number 10 was unavailable to Armstrong at the time when he joined the team, he went one number up.

Since then, I always liked the number 11. I’ve stuck with it and if I ever played professional sports, that would be my number.

Warriors unveil completely unnecessary slate gray alternate uniform

New Warriors alternate uniforms.

I knew this was coming. I didn’t want it to happen. But here we are.

The NBA and Adidas, for the third straight season, have given the Warriors a new alternate uniform to wear. This one was expected as the team’s style guide revealed several of their logos recolored in slate gray. It was an indication that a new uniform would be on its way.

The initial reaction is “why?” The Warriors have vibrant colors of royal and gold. It’s a great identity and to murk it up with gray doesn’t work for me. It’s drab and doesn’t match their current identity.

I don’t know if they are trying to look like the Nets but calling these the #WarriorsSlate in an attempt to make it like some secret spy uniform is pretty silly. Slate gray is just not working for me. Check out more photos of the new set.

Steph Curry says he’s a better offensive player than LeBron James

Steph Curry says he’s a better offensive player than LeBron James

Samuel:

I see nothing wrong with what he said. If he is, then he is. If he isn’t, nothing wrong thinking he can be. I don’t agree, but this isn’t news.

Originally posted on For The Win:

Stephen Curry emerged as one of the best guards in the league last season, making his first All-Star team and taking the Golden State Warriors to the playoffs. His 24 points per game were seventh best in the league, and Curry led the NBA with 261 3-pointers in the regular season — 38 more than any other player. In an interview on the Dan Patrick Show, Curry said that he’s a better offensive player than four-time MVP LeBron James.

Patrick: Who’s the better offensive player, you or LeBron?

Curry: A better offensive player, me or LeBron? That’s the first time I’ve ever been asked that question. Me.

OK.

Gotta be, right?

I don’t know. I’d assume you would think [that]. You’re a pure shooter. He can score, you can, too, but I think that, you know what, the correct answer is probably that LeBron is a better scorer but I…

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.
