The Golden State Warriors are in the middle of a packed Western Conference playoff race at the moment, but here are the five biggest rumors surrounding them as we enter mid-April. You will not be shocked that we touch on David Lee and Stephen Curry, but you might be surprised by a rumor concerning the Warriors assistant coaches.

Honestly, this one depends largely on the playoff matchup. The Warriors are currently limping into the playoffs, but just ask the San Antonio Spurs if Stephen Curry is a player you want to bump into during the playoffs. David Lee is sometimes a defensive liability, and we will have to see if that pops up at all in the first round.

I'm sure you all heard about the Brian Scalabrine incident, and then recently another assistant coach was let go for an unrelated incident. There seems to be a trend developing around Jackson, and it is not a great one.

Calling them the best jump shooting duo in league history is a bit pre-mature. Curry is a once-in-a-lifetime talent, but Thompson still has a ways to go. His percentages are decent, but at this point he is still a low volume shooter.

You could see this happening right? I hate to say it, but Harrison Barnes might be the guy that gets shipped. He had solid numbers last season, but has struggled with his bench role this year. Honestly, I just cannot see them trading Andre Iguodala after giving him the big contract, and it might be Barnes who misses out at as a result.

I heard recently that Andre Iguodala does not like the nickname Iggy. Well, that is just the sort of thing that will make me put Iggy into one of my slide titles. Sorry Iggy. The nickname is just too good not to use. It even feels good to say it out loud. Don't believe me? Then try it with me three times fast. Iggy, Iggy, Iggy.
