The Skinny

Andy KHLiu of Golden State of Mind gives a recap of the Golden State Warriors' first preseason game.

Warriors lose, Curry dunks, rest of the team is skinny - Golden State Of Mind
Did you know that Andrew Bogut can dribble a ball up the court? Sort of fast? Anyway, this type of game, with a tad bit more hype than other preseason games - mostly because it's the first one - mostly gave the players a chance to get into game shape. No matter how many stairs, box jumps or liners you do in practice, it's a bit different on the court when you're moving in directions you don't normally do in drills. Or maybe that's my excuse for the Stephen Curry bricks, Andrew Bogut floater clanks, and Harrison Barnes awkward jumpers. Then again, those Klay Thompson layups looked like they were in, umm, future season (?) form? As long as ankles remained intact and energy level remained high, this would be a success.

Nate Parham expounds on the reports of Andrew Bogut's goal of playing all 82 games this season.

Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut is finally healthy and aiming for an 82 game season - Golden State Of Mind
If this bears out, and Bogut avoids re-injury, it would be absolutely huge for the Warriors...It's forgotten that Bogut also has alot of offensive skill, with good touch around the basket and smart instincts. He's a willing passer. It was painful watching him try and operate in pick and roll sets in the playoffs, but if his movement is back, there's no reason the Warriors, in all honesty, can't contend for a Finals berth. -- Matt Moore of CBS Sports

Andy KHLiu talks about the dangers of optimism that the Golden State Warriors will confront this season.

The preseason's preseason: on our new, and old, perceptions - Golden State Of Mind
Because though we won't admit it to ourselves, there's a lot more to lose with a team poised to take the proverbial next step towards a championship than one taking several back to the pinball machine.
