As Golden State begins defense of its 2017 NBA championship, we celebrate the Warriors all week with special features on NBA.com and special programming on NBA TV.
By now you've read a story from Shaun Powell that explains how the Warriors actually improved this summer; watched a one-hour special on NBA TV Monday night that recapped the Warriors’ incredible 16-1 playoff run; seen a lengthy interview with Warriors coach Steve Kerr; and, of course, watched the Warriors collect their rings and hoist the franchise's fifth championship banner live on TNT Tuesday night.
The Warriors appear on national TV three times this week:
Tuesday: Houston Rockets @ Golden State Warriors, 10:30 p.m. ET (TNT)
Friday: Golden State Warriors @ New Orleans Pelicans, 9:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Saturday: Golden State Warriors @ Memphis Grizzlies, 8 p.m. ET (NBA TV)
