or something to that effect. Gary is right on. Rick Barry is the greatest Golden State Warrior who ever lived. He is a Hall of Famer and one of the NBA's 50th greatest NBA players. And they don't even invite him to the playoff game or pay for his ticket?! No Class. The Ws can't go to the next level if Warriors management treat their very best like that.
Well, at least I saw Jamaal Wilkes (Rick's Rookie teammate from UCLA) at the Warrior game and he's a Hall of Fame member of the Warriors last and ONLY championship team... but Jamaal left the Ws to play with Magic Johnson and all those championships - though one of his kids still plays at Cal.
We haven't forgotten you, Rick! The way you used to score 50 points a game by driving the lane or shooting that sweet jumper. The way you used to pass like Pistol Pete, Larry Bird, and Magic.
Don't get me wrong! I love these current Warriors and they're awesome! But it's kinda weird everyone is talking about the 1975 championship and Rick Barry's absence is rather conspicuous don'tcha think?
