The Resume

    (1946- )
    Located in Oakland, California
    Formerly known as the Philadelphia Warriors (1946-62) and the San Francisco Warriors (1962-71)
    Won seven NBA championships (1947, 1956, 1975, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2022)
    Five retired numbers: Wilt Chamberlain's #13, Tom Meschery's #14, Al Attles' #16, Rick Barry's #24, and Nate Thurmond's #42
    Other former and current players include Chris Mullin, Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond, and Erick Dampier
    Set an NBA record with 73 victories in a single season (April 13, 2016)

Why they might be annoying:

    They're called Golden State even though there are three other Californian NBA franchises.
    They had the gimmick of starting 7'7 Manute Bol and 5'3 Muggsy Bogues together.
    They keep losing their best players to free agency or trading them.
    Latrell Sprewell choked coach P.J. Carlesimo, which caused his contract with the Warriors to be terminated.
    They have the NBA record for most overtime losses without a win in a season with eight (1979-80).

Why they might not be annoying:

    They won the very first NBA championship (which was then called the BAA), defeating the Chicago Stags.
    They are one of three charter members of the NBA still playing.
    Wilt Chamberlain was a Warrior when he had his 100-point game (1962).
    They had the high-scoring trio of Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond, and Chris Mullin, which became known as Run-TMC.
    Sarunas Marciulionis, the first player from the former Soviet Union to play in the NBA, was signed by the Warriors.
