Over the last decade, the Golden State Warriors have won four NBA championships. Although they had a couple of rebuilding seasons, they quickly bounced back and have sometimes looked better than ever.
Their organization, in general, has won seven championships. When they won their first of the three this century in 2015, the Warriors broke a championship-less streak of 40 years.
With the core Big 3 still in place, the fanbase has grown fond of who they have seen lead this team for the last decade. Better yet, many of the older fans have been loving players for several decades.
That said, let’s break down the top 30 players of the Warriors franchise. We should note that numbers alone don’t define our decision — impact and success also have a bearing.
30. Stephen Jackson

A prominent member of the “we believe” Warriors in the 2006-07 season, Stephen Jackson had an underrated stint in his 179 games with the team. Jackson averaged 20 points per game in the 2007 NBA Playoffs that included a surprising first-round upset of the top-seeded Dallas Mavericks.
Jackson’s time with Golden State was easily the best of his career, as he had his best scoring years while also shooting at his best clip from downtown in Oakland.
