After a 16-hour flight that had a stop in Anchorage, the Warriors arrived in Beijing on Saturday night. As you can see in the video below, the team received quite the welcome from Chinese fans, some of whom have to be happy with the recent launch of Golden State’s Chinese-language website and Weibo social media account.
Now the Warriors must acclimate to the 15-hour time difference, as the team will have a practice on Sunday before taking a trip to the Great Wall. We’ll have much more on that in the days ahead, but in the meantime, check out photos of the team’s arrival in Beijing in the photo gallery below.
And remember, the Warriors’ first action in the 2013 NBA Global Games is Tuesday at 4:30 a.m. (Pacific). Fans can watch the game live on NBA TV and for full coverage of the team’s trip, make sure to visit warriors.com/global/2013.
