The Golden State Warriors will wear a #42 patch on their uniforms for every game this season in honor of the late Warriors legend Nate Thurmond, who passed away on July 16, 2016, at the age of 74 after a short battle with leukemia. Voted one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA history, Thurmond was a beloved member of the Warriors organization for more than four decades as both a player and a Community Relations Ambassador.
Considered one of the best centers to ever play the game of basketball, Thurmond was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1985. A seven-time NBA All-Star, he earned NBA All-Defensive First or Second Team accolades five times. His Warriors jersey #42 was retired on March 8, 1978, one of six players to have his number retired by the Warriors along with Alvin Attles (#16), Rick Barry (#24), Wilt Chamberlain (#13), Tom Meschery (#14) and Chris Mullin (#17).
