Golden Guardians is an American esports organization operated by the NBA team Golden State Warriors.

History

2018 Season

Spring Split

Golden Guardians was one of four new teams awarded a slot in the newly franchised LCS. The roster for their first split consisted of former Team Liquid top laner and support Lourlo and Matt, former Cloud9 jungler Contractz, veteran mid laner Hai, and rookie AD carry Deftly, with former TSM and Liquid coach Locodoco. They were the only team in the 2018 Spring Split to have a roster consisting solely of North American players, but were also predicted to be a bottom tier team partly for that reason. These predictions proved prescient once the season began, as Golden Guardians were the last NALCS team to record a win to start the season, and finished the first half 1-8. Locodoco was also fired by the team after only two weeks of play, allegedly due to making inappropriate remarks to a female Riot employee, and was replaced by assistant coach Akiri. The team did show some improvements in the second half of the season, recording wins over the stronger Team Liquid and Echo Fox, but failed to reverse their early season misfortunes, finishing tenth with a 4-14 record, well out of the playoff picture.
