I’m going to be writing a book about the Golden State Warriors! (Yay!) It’s going to be published by Atria Books (an imprint of Simon & Schuster) around Sept. 2017.
I don’t want to give too much away, but I’ll say that I think the Warriors are the best story in sports of the past five years, and their transformation from a franchise mired at rock bottom into one of the great teams in basketball history — if not the greatest — is a fascinating tale worthy of a nuanced and detailed exploration. From the players to the executives to the people behind the scenes you never read about, the rise of the Warriors is unlike anything we’ve seen in recent sports history. I was fortunate enough to witness the beginnings of all this back in 2011. Five years later, there’s so much more to tell. Few could envision Golden State getting this good this fast, but here we are, and it hasn’t happened by accident.
With fresh reporting, extensive research, and new insights, I hope this book will serve as the definitive account of Golden State’s incredible ascent and the people who helped make it happen. (No pressure!)
