It is undeniable that the Golden State warriors is among the most successful NBA squads in the past few years. That is the reason why some prominent veterans accepted the opportunity to represent the Oakland-based team. One of them hopes that he can stay even after this season.

Earlier in this year's offseason, the Warriors brought in a familiar journeyman in the NBA. The reigning champions signed Omri Casspi to a one-year deal that is set to earn him the veteran's minimum ($2.1 million). In a report by the San Francisco Chronicle nearly a week ago, Casspi expressed his desire to ink a similar pact after the season, just to continue donning a Warriors jersey.

Casspi has two main reasons why he aims to stick with the Warriors. First, is his goal to win, something the Dubs have been doing in the past three seasons. Second, is his relationship with Warriors head coach Steve Kerr. Casspi sounded happy playing under Kerr, even though he seldom gets significant playing time. The 29-year-old believes that Kerr is helping him return on the right track following all the injuries and challenges he dealt with in his NBA career.

In 11 games for the Warriors so far this season, Casspi has averaged 5.1 points and 3.1 rebounds per contest. He is on the hardwood for almost 11 minutes each night.

The journey

Before Omri Casspi ended up with the Golden State Warriors, he suited up for five teams.

Casspi got selected by the Sacramento Kings in the 2009 NBA Draft (23rd overall pick). The pride of Israel had three stints with the Kings. Aside from the Kings, Casspi spent time with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Houston Rockets, New Orleans Pelicans, and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

No Curry?

The likes of Omri Casspi might need to step up on November 16 when the Golden State Warriors visit the Boston Celtics at the TD Garden.

At the moment, it remains undetermined if the Warriors will have Stephen Curry. The two-time MVP is "probable" for the contest because of a right thigh contusion. Curry already missed one outing due to the injury.

NBA fans are anticipating Thursday's matchup between the Warriors and the Celtics. It is a showdown of two of the current best squads in the league.

The Warriors sit atop the Western Conference with an 11-3 record (seven-game winning streak). Meanwhile, the Celtics have won 13 consecutive games after dropping their first two this season. They are at 13-2 to lead the NBA and the Eastern Conference.
