Golden State Warriors Rumors
Early Wednesday morning, after returning home from another 19-hour day as the Warriors’ director of team operations, Eric Housen cued up a video from the TNT telecast of the team’s championship ring ceremony. His wife, Codi, had told him how giddy he was when Stephen Curry — microphone in hand, speaking to a capacity Oracle Arena crowd and millions more watching on TV — invited Housen to receive his ring with the players.
“Honestly, I was so overwhelmed by the moment,” Housen, 45, said, his voice trembling. “I’ve never been a guy who wanted the spotlight. But to be recognized on that stage, in that way, it was pretty incredible. For such a simple thing, it meant the world to me and my family.”
Curry is just as adamant that Housen, in his 32nd season as Golden State’s behind-the-scenes force, is the league’s best do-everything support staffer. “We have kind of have an unspoken bond,” Curry said. “He knows all of my superstitions — the shoes I want to wear, and some of the little perks I have in the locker room or at home that kind of make me comfortable and keep the season going.
Jerebko crashed the basket and tipped in a shot against his former team with 0.3 seconds remaining to lift the Golden State Warriors to a 124-123 victory over the Jazz on Friday night. “My teammates knew this was a big game for me coming back here. I wanted to win and told them I really wanted this one,” said Jerebko, who couldn’t stop smiling after the victory.
