I've been a Warriors fan since they traded Chris Webber. Can you imagine how that's like....

Sadly I don't think we win this one. We're the better team, but Baron is going to have an unbelievable day and destroy us...he's like that.

Anyone else think it's weird that the Clippers all have the same skin tone (except for the obvious exception).

Too bad Maggette is no where near as good as Baron.

It's definitely going to be a bittersweet game. Baron represents a golden era for us Warrior fans, despite it being just 2 years.

Eh...for me Baron represents the "jacked up too many ridiculous 3's" era, or the "was really good, but only tried 2/3 of the time" era...either one, I don't miss him at all.

Hopefully we get this one. They're 1-7, however, and we always lose to teams that are far worse than we are.

Cuttino "Orenthal James" Mobley anyone?

I voted Maggette not having a big game, but I believe, or at the very least hope, the Warriors can pull this one out. Let's have Randolph+Beans+Wright on the court again.

Sadly, as bad as they are............ its going to be a tough game as Baron will want to highlight the error of letting him go of course...........and The Cat/Warrior Killer Mobley always has great games against us.

Crossing my fingers for an emotional victory in this one. [-o<

I don't really get this. Going by their starting lineup, the Clippers are good enough to be a playoff team. All that "as bad as they are" is bullsh*t. The only one that truly s*cks in the Clippers organization is their coach, who has been one of the luckiest coaches in the league after being chosen to coach the Lakers when Magic was still playing and the Blazers when they had the best roster in the whole NBA, and still is unable to have a .500 record. Not counting those two rosters, he has ONE winning season in his resume in 9 seasons. Any other coach would have been out of the league with half of that record.

Going back to the Clippers, I don't think we match up too well against them, particularly (and pretty obvious, too) at PG. As somebody said above, Baron is gonna kill us.

Clips by 12.

:mrgreen: ............I should have written "As bad as they have been playing" record wise.

I agree, on paper, their team should be alot better record wise than it is...........and agree that this is mostly down to poor mixture of coach/ing style and player personel not fitting with that.

The only reason I did say that, is because I think there team is good!!!..........and will probably beat us purely because of the players they have, so Im not really saying they ARE bad, just that they are playing and organised poorly.

Know what I mean? :wink:

I will be curious to see what happens at the game. I am sure most people will boo him because of the fact that most of the people at the oracle are band wagon fans and still dont know anything behind the story of baron and rowell. I say clips beat us. davis will score as much as Azu and Watson combined. Davis may have been struggling so far this season... but tomorrow he will play with something to prove. I have been bored as of late with the warriors win or loss... only time i was interested was just to watch Wright, Randolph, and sometimes belli get his one or two touches. Other than hoping that our young guys pan out.. The only player i enjoy watching the most is Beans... He is one player on the team that i believe the rest of the league will be talking about for the rest of the year.
THATS OUR FUTURE RIGHT THERE
