The Golden State Warriors are an American professional basketball team based in Oakland, California. They are part of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The team was first established in 1946, as the Philadelphia Warriors, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where the franchise won the championship in the inaugural season of the Basketball Association of America (BAA), the league that would eventually become the National Basketball Association. In 1962, the franchise was relocated to San Francisco, California and became known as the San Francisco Warriors until 1971, when its name was changed to the current Golden State Warriors. The team has played all of its home games in the Oracle Arena since 1966, with the exception of a one-year hiatus where they played in San Jose, California when the Oracle Arena was being remodeled.

Along with their inaugural championship win in the 1946 47 season, the Warriors have won two others in the team's history, including another in Philadelphia after the 1955 56 season, and one as Golden State after the 1974 75 season, tying them for 5th in the NBA in number of championships.
