History

The Golden State Warriors had their start in Philadelphia, in the year of 1946, as the Philadelphia Warriors. Originally owned by Peter A. Tyrrell, they were a charter member of the Basketball Association of America.

During their first season they won the 1946-47 championship, defeating the Chicago Stags four games to one. Their second championship win took place under the ownership of Eddie Gottlieb who bought the team from Tyrrell in 1951. Defeating the Fort Wayne Pistons four games to one in the championship season of 1955-56.

Their tenure as the Philadelphia Warriors came to an end in 1962, when they were renamed and relocated to the San Francisco Warriors. Franklin Mieuli purchased the majority of the team and was responsible for the relocation to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1962.

Most of their home games took place at the Cow Palace in Daly City during this time. In 1971 the San Francisco Warriors renamed themselves the Golden State Warriors, and most of their home games were in Oakland. Their first championship win on the West Coast was during the 1974-75 season.

Al Attles was the coach at the time, defeating the Washington Bullets four games in a row and winning the championship. During the years 1978-1987 the Warriors reached a low point in their success rate.

By 1987 the team saw a brief revival with head coach Karl at the Western Conference Semifinal match against the Lakers. Sleepy Floyd, the Warriors All-Star point guard, led the team to victory with record breaking scoring performance. However, the team slowly collapsed hitting a low point again by 1997.

In July of 1997 Gary St. Jean was appointed as the Warriors General Manager. Bringing in many unsatisfactory players and one slam dunk champion, Gary and Dave Twardzik received a lot of blame for the teams’ struggles. The time frame of 2004-2007 was a time of rebuilding for the Warriors, with Chris Mullin succeeding Gary St. Jean and becoming the Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations.

Hiring and recruiting star players and staff led the team to the playoffs in 2007. During their first playoff game in 13 years, the team beat the Dallas Mavericks in the first game, lost the second, and went on to eliminate the Mavericks in a seven-game series.

This was their first playoff series win in 16 years. From 2007 to the present date, the Warriors saw many changes in their roster, which ultimately led to a championship win during the 2014-2015 season.
