Warriors celebrate 75th anniversary in home opener against Clippers

The Warriors will face the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday at the Chase Center in San Francisco – a special night for the Dubs as the franchise celebrates 75 years in the National Basketball Association, NBC Sports reports.

The Warriors plan on commemorating the occasion with special jerseys based on the team’s origin jersey and a 75th anniversary logo will be placed at center court.

The Warriors franchise first began in Philadelphia in 1946 where the team remained until 1962 when they moved, calling San Francisco home until 1971. The Warriors took on the “Golden State” designation after moving to Oakland to better represent the Bay Area as a whole.

The Warriors moved to the Chase Center in San Francisco in 2019.

On Tuesday, the Warriors showed off their depth, scoring 55 from the bench, beating the Lakers 121-114, East Bay Times reports.

Nemanja Bjelica scored a double-double with 15 points while pulling down 11 rebounds – the first Warriors player to do so from the bench since Sam K. Williams (16 points, 12 rebounds) on Oct. 30, 1981.

“It just feels like five or six years ago,” said Warriors coach Steve Kerr. “When we just had guys up and down the roster who could play. … We’ve got vets coming off the bench who just know how to play (and) know how to win.”

E-40, Too Short, Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube have joined to become Meet Mount Westmore, releasing their first single “Big Subwoofer” on Wednesday, KRON4 reports.

The powerhouse of veteran rappers are kicking off their first project launched by Snoop Dogg titled “The Algorithm” under the Def Jam label and will feature performers from Def Jam’s “past present and future,” Snoop Dogg said in a statement.

Snoop explained the album’s title stems from the proliferation of “so many styles of music, it breaks the algorithm. Right now, the algorithm is telling us you have to rap this way, you have to sound this way, but they’re not telling you how it’s supposed to feel. My algorithm is going to give you a feeling, not a sound,” Pitchfork reports.

Snoop Dog will be performing alongside Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, and Mary J. Blige at. the Super Bowl LVI Halftime show on February 13 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood Ca.
