The Golden State Warriors are based in Oakland, California. They are part of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference in the 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. Along with their inaugural championship win in the 1946–1947 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 6th in the NBA in number of championships.
