The Golden State Warriors are an American professional basketball team based in Oakland, California. The franchise has also been based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, San Francisco and San Jose, California (during a renovation of their home arena) during its existence. The team is a member of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Warriors initially joined the Basketball Association of America (BAA) as the Philadelphia Warriors in 1946, and won the first BAA championship title in the same year under coach Edward Gottlieb. The Warriors later joined the NBA at its foundation in 1949. The Warriors' record was 26–42 in their first NBA season, and they lost in the first round of the playoffs to the Syracuse Nationals.[1][2] Franklin Mieuli and the Diners Club put together a group of 40 local investors to move the Warriors to San Francisco before the 1962–63 NBA season, with Mieuli eventually buying all the shares of the franchise to keep the team from collapsing and to keep it in the area. After playing several home games in Oakland from 1967 onward, the team moved to Oakland full-time for the 1971–72 NBA season and changed their name to the Golden State Warriors.[3][4][5]

Led by Rick Barry, the Warriors were a strong franchise during the middle 1970s, achieving winning records every season from 1971–72 to 1977–78, winning two division titles, and winning the 1975 NBA championship. After Barry departed at the end of the 1977–78 season, however, the Warriors were never in the hunt for a title or even an NBA Finals appearance for the next 35 seasons. Between 1978–79 and 2011–12, the Warriors only achieved winning records in eight seasons. The team also suffered the NBA’s equal-third-longest postseason appearance drought in history, with no playoff appearances between 1994–95 and 2005–06: this mark trails only the Braves/Clippers between 1976–77 and 1990–91 and the Timberwolves between 2004–05 and 2016–17.[note 1]

Led by NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry, the Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in six games to win the 2015 NBA championship. In the following season, the Warriors--boosted by over half a decade of skillful drafting--finished with the best record in NBA history; the team ended the 2015–16 season with a final mark of 73–9, one win better than Michael Jordan’s 1995–96 Bulls. The Warriors reached the 2016 NBA Finals, but were defeated by the Cavaliers in seven games. After adding Kevin Durant in the off-season, they won 67 games during the 2016–17 campaign. The Warriors set another NBA record by winning 207 games during the three-year period ending in 2017. In the 2017 NBA Finals, the Warriors faced the Cavaliers for the third consecutive season and won the NBA title in five games. In 2018, meeting the Cavaliers for the fourth consecutive season and coming off an NBA Finals win the year before, the Warriors swept the Cavaliers in four games winning the final championship game 108-85 completing their run as back to back champions.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ In the 2017–18 season, the Sacramento Kings equalled the Warriors’ ignominy of twelve consecutive seasons without a postseason appearance. If the Kings do not reach the playoffs in 2018–19, they will surpass the 1994–95 to 2005–06 Warriors and equal the 2004–05 to 2016–17 Timberwolves.
