bleacherreport.com — The Golden State Warriors once again resisted their first impulse. Result, once again: Success.

Mavericks, Not Spurs, Could Be the Texas Team to Lure LaMarcus Aldridge Away

bleacherreport.com — When it comes to NBA free agency, armchair GMs-as in everyone who isn't an actual NBA GM-tend to pair available players with teams that have the cash and the need, as if the entire procedure is akin to acquiring and installing a missing part on a car.

bleacherreport.com — After the Lakers' bid to win four consecutive championships fell short with a second-round loss to the eventual champion San Antonio Spurs in 2003, the franchise appeared to solidify its chance of claiming another trophy when future Hall of Famers Gary Payton and Karl Malone elected to sign free-agent contracts far below their market value that summer in order to win the one honor that had eluded them-a title.

bleacherreport.com — OAKLAND-Time to update that old aphorism, "Live By The Three, Die By The Three." Let's be clear: No team is going to win a championship strictly shooting from long range, and no team is going to win a championship with a one-dimensional offense of any kind.

With Attitude, Clutch Play, Warriors' Bench Showing It Takes Backseat to None

bleacherreport.com — Among the many surpluses this year's Golden State Warriors enjoy that last year's did not-not one but two All-Stars, not one but two shot-blocking centers, not one but two head coaches-it's rarely noted that they damn near have not one but two starting lineups.

bleacherreport.com — OAKLAND - Draymond Green already had both legs, thigh to ankle, swaddled in bags of ice as he sat in front of his locker when assistant athletic trainer Drew Yoder alerted him that he was second among three players for one-hour postgame massages.

Draymond Green's Impact on Warriors May Change Definition of NBA's Top Defender

bleacherreport.com — Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports If early returns are any indication, the Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green will beat out Clippers center DeAndre Jordan for Defensive Player of the Year, which would represent either a watershed moment or a once-every-decade quirk in how the award is selected.
