Golden State Warriors Tickets Continued
The Golden State Warriors are a National Basketball Association team based in Oakland, California. "Golden State" is the nickname of the state of California, derived from the 1849 Gold Rush. The Warriors are the only major professional basketball franchise to exclude the legal name of their city or state from the team's name.
As of 2005, the Warriors have made a great start. For the first time since 1994, the Warriors enter January of 2006 with a winning percentage over .500. Warriors fans hope that 2005-2006 will finally be the season that the team makes the NBA playoffs. The team's backcourt has never played better as both Davis and Richardson lead the team in scoring. In addition, the team is getting a boost from the younger guys including Ike Diogu, who is proving himself as the valuable low-post scorer the Warriors need, Chris Taft who is trying to prove his critics wrong and is making the most of his minutes, and Monta Ellis. With the struggles of some perennial playoff teams such as the Rockets, Kings, Jazz, and Nuggets, the Warriors hope that their window of opportunity is opened.
