Back In Business

And weíre back Ö The days of a Monta Ellis spin move through the lane will soon be upon us. Weíll soon get to see Stephen Curry find David Lee with a no-look pass and we will soon watch Dorell Wright knock down a 3-pointer from the corner. New Warriors Head Coach Mark Jackson has promised that big things are coming and Bay Area basketball fans are ready for him to deliver. The NBA is back and weíll soon find out if Coach Jackson can take the Warriors to the playoffs.

Jackson, along with Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Larry Riley, discussed the upcoming season with reporters on Thursday at Oracle Arena.

It has been said that Opening Night is like Christmas for a basketball fan, and come December 25, they will be one and the same. The NBA announced today that the Warriors will open their 2011-12 season on Christmas night against the Los Angeles Clippers, marking the second-consecutive season that the team will play a nationally televised game on December 25.

So yes, Opening Night is a little more than three weeks away, but you wonít have to wait that long for the action to begin. In fact, it already has. Lou Amundson was the first Warriors player to work out at the team's practice facility and the rest of the team is expected back soon at team headquarters in Downtown Oakland. Training camp doesnít officially begin for another week, but itíd be safe to assume that the Warriors Practice Facility will be a hotbed of activity until that time. Check out a quick schedule of the activities to come:
  • 12/6: 2011-12 Schedule Announced (4pm)

  • 12/7: Single-Game Ticket Pre-Sale (10am)

  • 12/9: Training camp begins *

  • 12/12: Media Day & Open Scrimmage *

  • 12/17: Preseason Game vs. Sacramento

  • 12/20: Preseason Game at Sacramento

  • 12/25: Opening Night vs. Los Angeles Clippers

  • * All dates are tentative
More details on each of the above items will be provided in the near future, and you can be among the first to know about them by liking us on Facebook or following us on Twitter. There is so much to look forward to that itís difficult to hide our excitement. Itís going to be fun, itís going to be busy, itís going to be back to basketball! Big things are coming indeed!

By the odd chance that you need a reason to get excited for the season, this video should do the trick:
