The Golden State Warriors are back in the NBA Finals for the third straight season. And for the third straight year, they are playing the Cleveland Cavaliers.

This time around, though, the Warriors have a notable change on their jerseys. A golden band with the No. 42 is on the right shoulder of the jersey, and it’s to honor a legendary former player that died last year.

“Without a doubt, he is one of the most beloved figures to ever wear a Warriors uniform,” Golden State owner Joe Lacob said of Thurmond to USA Today.

Golden State legend Nate Thurmond died July 16, 2016 at the age of 74 after a battle with leukemia. Thurmond played 11 of his 14 professional seasons with the Warriors and had a quite a stellar career. He’s considered by some to be one of the best centers ever to play in the NBA and he had his jersey retired by the franchise in 1978, becoming one of six players to do so.

Prior to the 2016-17 season, Golden State announced that it would wear the patch for every game during the season.



Thurmond was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1985 because of his dominance on the floor. He was a seven-time NBA All-Star seven times and was selected to the NBA All-Defensive first or second team five times.

For his career, Thurmond averaged 15 points and 15 rebounds per game to go along with 2.7 assists. He had a field-goal percentage of 41.1 percent.

Thurmond was selected No. 3 overall in the 1963 NBA Draft after playing college basketball at Bowling Green. He’s the Warriors’ all-time leader in rebounds (12.771) and minutes played (30,735). Notably, he’s the first-ever player to record a triple-double. He scored 22 points, 14 rebounds, 13 assists and 12 blocks when he played for the Chicago Bulls in a game against the Atlanta Hawks in 1974.

“Looking back, he was as ferocious as any player in the history of the game on the court, but one of the kindest and nicest souls in his everyday life,” former teammate and coach Al Attles said to USA Today.

The Warriors also wore patch on their jerseys commemorating their 70th season as a franchise (it was created in 1946 in Philadelphia).

Warriors to Wear #42 Patch on Uniforms All Season in Honor of Nate Thurmond

The Golden State Warriors will wear a #42 patch on their uniforms for every game this season in honor of the late Warriors legend Nate Thurmond, who passed away on July 16, 2016, at the age of 74 after a short battle with leukemia. Voted one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA history, Thurmond was a beloved member of the Warriors organization for more than four decades as both a player and a Community Relations Ambassador.

The Warriors are slated to play their first preseason game this afternoon against the Toronto Raptors in Vancouver, Canada.

Considered one of the best centers to ever play the game of basketball, Thurmond was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1985. A seven-time NBA All-Star, he earned NBA All-Defensive First or Second Team accolades five times. His Warriors jersey #42 was retired on March 8, 1978, one of six players to have his number retired by the Warriors along with Alvin Attles (#16), Rick Barry (#24), Wilt Chamberlain (#13), Tom Meschery (#14) and Chris Mullin (#17).

Over a 14 year NBA career – the first 11 of which were played with the San Francisco and Golden State Warriors – Thurmond held averages of 15.0 points and 15.0 rebounds per game, including averaging 20.5 points and 22.0 rebounds during the 1967-68 campaign to join Wilt Chamberlain as the only Warriors to post at least 20 points and 20 boards in a single season. “Big Nate,” who was selected third overall by the San Francisco Warriors in the 1963 NBA Draft following his collegiate career at Bowling Green, remains the franchise’s all-time leader in rebounds (12,771) and minutes played (30,735). Thurmond became the first player to record an official quadruple-double, tallying 22 points, 14 rebounds, 13 assists and 12 blocks as a member of the Chicago Bulls against the Atlanta Hawks on October 18, 1974. Following his illustrious playing career, Thurmond spent more than 30 years as a valued asset to the Warriors’ community relations department.

Warriors to honor Thurmond with season-long No. 42 patch

The Golden State Warriors will be honoring one of their own throughout the 2016-17 season.

A No. 42 patch will be displayed on their uniforms for every game to honor late Warriors legend Nate Thurmond, who passed away July 16 after losing a battle with leukemia.

He was 74 years old.

Named one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history, Thurmond was an imposing presence around the rim, averaging 15 points, 15 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks over his 14-year career. Rejections were recognized as an official statistic ahead of the 1973-74 season, so had they been recorded over Thurmond's first 10 years, he'd likely be ranked near the top of that category.

He was also the first player to officially record a quadruple-double, scoring 22 points, grabbing 14 rebounds, dishing out 13 assists, and swatting away 12 shots with the Chicago Bulls in 1974.

Thurmond's No. 42 was retired by the Warriors in 1978, and he was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame seven years later.

He ranks second in Warriors history in games played (757), first in minutes (30,735), fifth in points (13,191), and first in rebounds (12,771). Some of his other accolades include being a seven-time All-Star and two-time member of the NBA All-Defensive First Team.

Golden State takes the court for its first preseason game Oct. 1 against the Toronto Raptors.
