The Golden State Warriors joined the NBA in 1946, when they were known as the
Philadelphia Warriors. The team was moved to California in 1962 when they became
the San Francisco Warriors. The final name change came in 1971 when they became
the Golden State Warriors they are to this date. Fans in the Bay Area have really
warmed to the team, with Golden State Warriors tickets selling very well for all
games, despite the lack of success in recent seasons.
The Warriors have had some illustrious seasons, having captured two division titles,
six conference titles, and two NBA titles. Their most recent success came in the 1975
season when they won the division, conference, and NBA titles. That was the year
that Golden State Warriors tickets were most sought after, as fans flocked to arenas
to see their team beat the best in the NBA.
Those who get seasonal Golden State Warriors tickets were most proud when their
side had a fantastic line up of Rick Barry, Jamaal Wilkes, and Phil Smith. These were
the years that eventually culminated in that 1975 triple success. Another division
title came in 1976, but the ultimate step of a second NBA title was too much to ask
for. After this period, the team experienced 15 years of poor fortunes. Bad trades
and average draft picks left Golden State Warriors tickets buyers disappointed that
there team could not win more.
In recent times, the Warriors have had players such as Baron Davis, Jason
Richardson, Andris Biedrins, and superstar Monta Ellis playing for the team. Out of
all these players, Ellis went on to become a fan favorite and was the name on the
back of most fans' shirts. However, playoff success has eluded them.
The Warriors have played in seven different arenas, the most recent of them being
the Oracle Arena. The arena was named the Oracle Arena in 1997 and this naming
rights deal will go on until 2017. The stadium was renovated for $121 million in 1997,
now being able to host 19,596 fans. This arena is always sold out, with Golden State
Warriors tickets selling very well. Not only do fans from Oakland attend games, but
people from all around the Bay Area. This is very much northern California's team of
The Golden State Warriors have a dedicated but demanding following. The fans in
California are all too used to seeing the L.A. Lakers being the top dogs of the state.
They want the Warriors to be able to compete on that level. While they know that
they may never be able to compete with the Lakers financially, they hope that smart
draft picks will help elevate the Warriors to that status. However, no matter what
happens they will continue to buy Golden State Warriors tickets in high numbers.
The Warriors have had an average last few seasons. They had a losing season in
2010-2011 which got coach Keith Smart fired in April 2011. However, new coach
Mark Jackson has not been able to do much better and the team ended 2012 with a
23-43 season and was 13th in the western conference. 2012-2013 will have to be a
better season in the eyes of demanding Golden State Warriors tickets holders.
There are reports that the Warriors will look to build a new 19,000 waterfront arena
in the Pier 30-32 area. This site should be done by the 2017 season and will be the
new home of the team when they leave Oakland's Oracle Arena. Fans will be excited
to get Golden State Warriors tickets for this stadium in the future.
11-26-12 Health continues to be an issue for this young and talented team. With their newest player, all-star center Andruw Bogut on the shelf for an indefinite about of time, the Warriors will continue to struggle defensively as they have in years past. Currently at 19th in points allowed per game, the Warriors still hold a winning record at 8-6. With early season signature wins against the Clippers and Hawks Steph Curry, David Lee and the Warriors will look to continue to improve as the season goes on.
