OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Rookie forward Draymond Green walked out of Golden State's practice facility Friday holding a yellow ``We Are Warriors'' shirt in his hand, taking home the small souvenir to savor the team's captivating playoff run a little longer.
Even though the season ended so painfully, the Warriors will carry more positive memories from the 2012-13 campaign than they ever imagined back in training camp.
Golden State overcame injury setbacks all season to earn a rare playoff berth, pulled off a first-round upset against Denver and pushed the four-time champion San Antonio Spurs to six games in the Western Conference semifinals. If Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut can find a way to stay healthy, the Warriors believe they could be a major championship contender in the coming years.
