“Shaun was a huge part of three NBA championship teams with the Warriors, but his overall journey is what is most remarkable,” said Warriors Co-Chairman & CEO Joe Lacob. “He overcame incredible odds following a devastating injury, wore nine different NBA uniforms during his comeback, had a stint in the D-League and, fittingly, ended up being a major contributor on one of the best teams in NBA history.”

“Now, his resume indicates that he’s one of only a handful of players in league history to win at least three NBA championships. He has been a tremendous credit to the Warriors organization and our community for the last five years and has always carried himself as a professional.
