Golden State Warriors 2024 NBA Championship Odds

When the Golden State Warriors won the 2022 NBA Finals it seemed as if they were all future. Instead, the Warriors have suffered from a stunning fall to the lowly status of a Western Conference play-in team. This season was wrecked almost from the start because of the thuggery of Draymond Green, who missed large chunks of time with multiple suspensions. While the Warriors boast Stephen Curry, one of the elite players in the game, they have little else and no credibility as a serious NBA championship contender.

Golden State Warriors History

The Golden State Warriors have the distinction of winning the first recognized basketball championship. Golden State was a founding member of the BAA and won the first title over the Chicago Stags during the 1946-47 season when they were known as the Philadelphia Warriors. However, they struggled upon joining the NBA and only finished with a winning record once before winning the 1956 NBA Championship.

This franchise moved across the country to become the San Francisco Warriors in 1962. They were seen as title contenders with the great Wilt Chamberlain, but they lost the 1964 NBA Finals, and he was traded the following season. The Warriors continued to be competitive without him, and they eventually brought the city a title in 1975 with Rick Barry leading the way.

Golden State was one of the worst teams in the league from the late 1970s until the early 2010s. Over the last decade, the Warriors have been the premier franchise in the league, though. Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green have formed the core of a team that has been to the NBA Finals six times in the last eight years, winning four championships.
