    Getty Kevon Looney grabs a rebound against the Memphis Grizzlies. Before Friday’s decisive Game 6, Golden State Warriors veterans Steph Curry and Draymond Green came to a decision — veteran big man Kevon Looney needed to be back in the starting lineup. Acting head coach Mike Brown went with the veterans, inserting Looney in the starting lineup for the first time in six games and taking out rookie Jonathan Kuminga. It was a decision that now has the Warriors headed back to the Western Conference Finals. Mike Brown on the decision to start Kevon Looney: “It was Draymond’s call. Draymond and Steph.” pic.twitter.com/3CJLSLtdCb — Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) May 14, 2022 Looney turned in a dominant performance in Friday’s closeout game, grabbing a career-high 22 rebounds including 11 on the offensive side as Brown used the veteran to counter the Memphis Grizzlies’ size. Looney added four points and five assists in what is being heralded as the biggest game of his career. The latest Warriors news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Warriors newsletter here!

    DENVER — The TV broadcast of Game 3 of the Warriors-Nuggets series caught a rather unique sight late in the fourth quarter Thursday night. It wasn’t Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson or Andre Iguodala leading the huddle during a timeout after the Nuggets took a two-point lead. No, it was third-year guard Jordan Poole who was hyping up his teammates as they prepared to close out the final three minutes of the game. “These guys have given me confidence,” Poole said during a post-game TV interview about the interaction. But before the young gun could finish his thought, Thompson interrupted him, shaking and jumping behind Poole as he repeatedly exclaimed, “It’s a Poole party!” The 22-year-old, beaming with a smile, continued: “That’s what I’m talking about. We’ve got these guys who push us every single day… They want us to rise to the occasion. Being able to have Steph, Klay, Draymond and Andre, guys that have been here before, they know how important it is to come down the stretch and just being able to give these guys confidence....
    Getty Steven Adams and Jusuf Nurkic go head-to-head during a game between the Memphis Grizzlies and the Portland Trail Blazers. Whether or not the Golden State Warriors would ever consider cashing in on James Wiseman to acquire a veteran paint presence remains to be seen. At the trade deadline, though, Bob Myers and Co. seemed perfectly content to roll with the former No. 2 pick as the team’s only seven-footer. This much is certain — their lacking a true win-now pivot limits the Dubs’ options in combatting the star centers they’ll likely see in the playoffs. Wiseman, of course, has been shut down for the year, leaving Draymond Green and Kevon Looney with a particularly tall task down low. And looking ahead, there are serious questions about whether Wiseman will ever be able to stay healthy, let alone live up to his massive potential. As such, there’s a notion out there that Golden State needs to get something out of the 21-year-old while they still can. To that end, a league exec has an idea about who the...
    Getty Golden State Warriors forward Otto Porter Jr reacts after hitting a three during a game against the New Orleans Pelicans. There’s bouncing back from a disappointing loss, then there’s what the Golden State Warriors did to the Chicago Bulls on Friday. And while just about everyone was firing on all cylinders, rookie forward Jonathan Kuminga stole the show by dropping 25 points in 25 minutes and putting on a defensive exhibition. After the game, teammate Andrew Wiggins raved about the No. 7 overall pick, saying, “He’s an athlete. He can jump out the gym. He’s fast. He’s strong as s***.” While it was Kuminga that captured the headlines with his incredible output, though, another Warriors forward was perhaps equally impactful with his all-around effort in the game. Namely, Otto Porter, who didn’t even hit double figures as a scorer but nonetheless managed to fill up the box score. In just 19 minutes of action, Porter logged nine points, seven rebounds, six assists and five steals. It’s a line that has been matched or exceeded by just four...
    Getty Andre Iguodala dribbles the ball in a game against the Brooklyn Nets. The Golden State Warriors may have a difficult time replacing Draymond Green for a critical stretch of upcoming games, but one analyst believes a longtime veteran could have the best chance to fill the large void he leaves. Green entered the league’s health and safety protocols on December 26 and is now in danger of missing the next four games. The Warriors are already without starters Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole, and Green’s absence leaves the team without its offensive facilitator and best defensive stopper. One potential replacement could be waiting on the bench, an NBA analyst says. The latest Warriors news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Warriors newsletter here! Join Heavy on Warriors! Shorthanded WarriorsAs Jannelle Moore of the Daily Democrat noted, the Warriors could have a few avenues to replacing Green including moving Nemanja Bjelica or Juan Toscano-Anderson into the starting lineup. But the best chance to replicate the full impact Green has on the game — or at...
    Getty Andrew Wiggins and Jimmy Butler, then of the Minnesota Timberwolves, talk during a 2018 game against the San Antonio Spurs. For some time now, the prevailing belief about Golden State Warriors star Andrew Wiggins’ relationship with Jimmy Butler has been that the two have been beefing since their Minnesota days. Butler, of course, is one of the more fiery competitors in the NBA, while Wiggins’ drive has been questioned over the years. Consequently, their differing demeanors allowed for some public friction when they were teammates. However, Warriors vet Andre Iguodala just set the record straight on Butler’s true feelings for the former No. 1 overall pick. And despite what happened between the players in the past, it would seem that Butler now holds Wiggins in the highest esteem. “We had a common teammate — Jimmy Butler. Jimmy had nothing but positive things to say about Wiggs,” Iguodala revealed during a recent presser. “He liked playing with Wiggs. That was all I needed to hear to be honest because Jimmy doesn’t like anybody.”Butler Called Wiggins Soft in Minnesota...
    Getty Andre Iguodala goes into detail about what "Heat culture" is all about. If you’re wondering why the Miami Heat have been one of the most successful organizations in the NBA over the past 15 years, look no further than the culture of the franchise. Golden State Warriors veteran forward Andre Iguodala — who played on the Heat over the past two years and was a member of the 2019-20 team that advanced to the Finals — explained what “Heat culture” is all about during an appearance on The Draymond Green Show podcast. He also went into detail on the similarities and differences between the Heat and Warriors’ cultures. “Our environment is a little more relaxed,” explained Iguodala. “It’s got some hippy vibes to it, go at your own pace, go as you please. Miami is kind of like, straight and narrow, everybody in formation. I could see weaknesses in both. Because both had a lot of success—Pat Riley is probably one of the most successful player/coaches/GMs in NBA history. He’s done it at every level. We had...
    Getty Golden State Warriors forward Otto Porter, Jr. looks on during a game against the Phoenix Suns. While guesting on the December 2 episode of The Draymond Green Show, Golden State Warriors vet Andre Iguodala made it clear that he’s buying his team’s hot start as legit. From Game 1 with his old running mates, things have been eerily reminiscent of the Dubs’ recent glory days. “The first thing I noticed was the atmosphere,” Iggy said of his Warriors reunion tour. “We’re getting back to the old ways of, everywhere we go, the atmosphere is going to be just like that, which is incredible. Now you get to see, every team is going to play their best. As you know, when we get everybody’s best, we will be the best-prepared team come playoffs. Because we have that experience.” Not everything has felt like a retread, however. He has also taken note of his new teammates rising to the occasion, including a certain former No. 3 overall pick. “You also get to see what type of guys step up...
    Getty Avery Bradley, left, tries to guard the Warriors' Stephen Curry. In a way, he can bee seen as a symbol for the way the Lakers’ season has gone—and, at the same time, a symbol for how the Warriors’ NBA-best season has gone. That would be guard Avery Bradley who, if you go back to the final week of training camp, was the favorite to win the final spot in the Warriors’ rotation. Veterans Stephen Curry and Draymond Green were said to be pulling for him, hoping to have as much experience on the roster as possible. “Stephen Curry and Draymond Green were among a group of strong advocates for keeping Bradley,” Marcus Thompson of The Athletic wrote. Alas, the Warriors cut him. And they’re 18-2. That left the Lakers to sign Bradley, and he has not exactly thrived in L.A. They’re 11-11. In fact, injuries have forced him into a starting role and Bradley has proven to be among the worst starters in the NBA to this point this season. He has shot 30.2% from the 3-point...
    Getty Jordan Poole, Warriors While much of the attention around the NBA-best Warriors this year has been focused on star guard Stephen Curry, the who has moved up the ranks to become the favorite for the league’s MVP award this season, it’s been the developments that have happened elsewhere on the roster that have fueled Golden State’s early rise to championship contender-hood. One of those developments has been third-year guard Jordan Poole, whose late surge last season gave the franchise some confidence that he would be ready for a bigger role this season. He has been, essentially, a placeholder for rehabbing star Klay Thompson, and has done a fine impression: He’s averaging 18.4 points on 45.8% shooting. Thompson has certainly taken notice. When ESPN tweeted our a graphic marking Poole’s improvement here in Year 3, Thompson hopped on to comment with a retweet. “Proud vet is an understatement,” Thompson wrote. “I’ve seen this man put in the work everyday for the last few years and his future is incredibly bright.” Proud vet is an understatement . I’ve seen...
    Getty Andre Iguodala, Warriors At 3.7 points per game, NBA vet Andre Iguodala putting up the fewest points of his 18-year career. He’s not shooting well—at all—with a 38.5% make rate on his shots and just 26.7% on his 3-pointers. Yet the numbers show that Iguodala’s return to Golden State has been an ideal fit, and not just because he is an old-head mentor who can bring along the team’s younger players. Iguodala has been a key cog in Golden State’s bench unit, one that has been devastating all season. Offensively, the team scores 110.9 points per 100 possessions when he is on the floor, a slight improvement over the 110.1 it scores when he is on the bench, per Basketball-Reference. But defensively, Iguodala has been a stalwart. The Warriors allow just 88.2 points per 100 possessions when he is on the floor, and 101.7 when he is off it.

    Getty Andre Iguodala and Steph Curry react to a play during the 2017 Western Conference Finals. Andre Iguodala got to see Steph Curry’s greatness firsthand for six years, playing alongside the Golden State Warriors star as he turned in the first-ever unanimous MVP season and led the team to three titles. But Iguodala, returning to the Warriors this year after playing the last two seasons with the Miami Heat, said he needed to spend some time away from the organization to truly appreciate Curry’s greatness. Iguodala has the chance to be part of what the Warriors hope will be a rebound season, jumping back into title contention as Klay Thompson is expected to return to the floor for the first time in more than two full years.
