The Warriors Again Spent The Day At San Quentin, But With Their New Star In Tow This Year

09.25.16 3 years ago

For the fifth consecutive year, the Golden State Warriors visited San Quentin State Prison on Saturday in an effort to lift the inmates’ spirits, only this time, they brought their newest superstar addition, Kevin Durant, along for the event, along with Draymond Green. Here’s more from the team’s official press release, via

“…members of the Warriors front office staff and basketball operations department played a pickup game against select prison inmates in front of a crowd of prison guards and other inmates.

While Warriors President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Bob Myers headlined the Warriors contingent on the court, Warriors players Kevin Durant and Draymond Green took in the action from the sidelines. There, they sat among the inmates to watch the action, sign autographs and even play some dominos.”

It’s something the prisoners look forward to all year long, as detailed in Sam Amick’s excellent feature story on the event over at USA Today Sports from last summer. Meyers has become a staple of the annual pickup game, which in past years had featured former coach Mark Jackson, as well as former assistant Brian Scalabrine.
