Warriors open 2022-23 Preseason in Japan and Chase, & open thread
Bradley Beal, Juan Toscano-Anderson, Gary Payton II and Nikola Jokic will be back and out for revenge
Sep 24. Training Camp opens
Sep 30, 3:00am Pacific (yes). vs WAS in Japan. These preseason overseas trips make for a disrupted start to the season, but are good for bonding.
Belilaugh says: The last time they played in East Asia for preseason they were talking about how awful it was for them in terms of getting ready for the season due to the travel:
Quote from article: After a week of practice and one preseason game, the Warriors then spent a week in China with two preseason games against Minnesota in Shenzhen and Shanghai. They traveled for 15 hours. Kerr had a passport delay. The team woke up disoriented from the jet lag. The Warriors squeezed in clinics, promotional appearances and a team-sanctioned trip to Hong Kong. They held limited practices. Though the Warriors had an extra two days to prepare, that coincided with the NBA shortening the preseason by two weeks in order to spread out the regular-season schedule. As Warriors veteran guard Shaun Livingston observed, “it felt like when we came back from China, it was like game 30; that was rough.”
Oct 1, 10:00pm (yes) vs WAS in Japan. The bitter rematch. The Warriors snubbed Bradley Beal by not trading all their young players and future draft picks to get him. Now he’s out for revenge
Oct 9, 5:30pm. vs LAL at Chase Center. Juan Toscano-Anderson returns and is out for revenge
Oct 11, 7:00pm vs POR at Chase Center. Gary Payton II returns and is out for revenge
Oct 14, 7:00pm vs DEN at Chase Center. Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr will be back so DEN will finally be at full-strength, and they will be out for revenge
