2010-11 Recap - Dorell Wright

Little was made of Dorell Wright signing with the Warriors last July, but that move turned out to be one of the best free agent pick-ups of the year. In his first season with the Warriors, Wright established new career-highs in scoring (16.4 ppg), rebounds (5.3 rpg), assists (3.0 apg), steals (1.5 spg) and minutes (38.4 mpg). Check out what the Warriors swingman had to say about his first season with the Warriors in the video below:

Wright was a workhorse for the Warriors. He was one of just 32 players to play in 82 regular season games, and one of just 15 to start that many. His 3,146 minutes played were the fourth highest total in the NBA this season – Monta Ellis ranked first in that category (3,227) – and Wright wound up finishing third in the voting for the league’s Most Improved Player Award.

After spending the first six seasons of his NBA career in Miami, Wright established himself as a 3-point shooter. He certainly upheld that reputation with the Warriors, setting a franchise record with an NBA-leading 194 made 3-pointers and participating in the Three-Point Contest at All-Star Weekend, but he also proved to be much more than a pure shooter. He became a complete player with the Warriors and a pillar of stability.

From a lightly regarded free agent acquisition to a cornerstone of the Warriors’ success, Wright put together a season full of notable achievements. See below:


  • Led NBA with Warriors franchise-record 194 3-pointers
  • Became first player to score more points in his seventh NBA season than in his first six years combined, according to the Elias Sports Bureau
  • Finished third in voting for NBA's Most Improved Player Award
  • Made franchise-record nine 3-pointers at Minnesota on Nov. 27 (second highest single-game total in NBA this season)
  • First-ever Warriors player to lead the NBA in made 3-pointers
  • Only Warriors player to play in all 82 games (all starts) this season
  • Increased his scoring average from the 2009-10 season by 7.1 points per game (largest increase in the NBA)
  • Set career highs in total points (1,344), assists (242), rebounds (431), steals (124), field goals (485), 3-pointers (194), made free throws (180), minutes played (3,146) and games started (82)
  • Played the fourth most minutes in the NBA (3,146)
