Former Warrior players in the playoffs
Matt Barnes -- Actually starting on an awesome Orlando team. I miss both of these guys for their intense play and never quit attitude.
Mickael Pietrus -- Ha Ha, still plays with his heart, not so much with his head. Some things never change. Hit 4 3-pointers tonight!
Derek Fisher -- Amazingly a starter on the Lakers, and still makes key contributions.
DJ Mbenga -- One of my favorites of all time. Still in the NBA! One of his funniest plays with the warriors was on a fast break, someone fed him the ball on a full sprint through the key. He slammed it off the backboard (missed the rim) so hard it almost reached mid-court on the bounce! They both already have rings, and I don't want the Lakers to win, so I'm only rooting for DJ to get some playing time.
Jamal Crawford -- Well, he didn't do so well against Orlando, but he has found a place that appreciates him, and he got to play on a playoff team for the first time. I hope for his sake that Atlanta can recover from this last playoff disaster.
Antawn Jamison -- always plays hard, and plays bigger than he is, but I never appreciated his game very much. But if Cleveland wins, I'll be happy for him.
Jason Richardson -- Go Phoenix, go Jason. He's playing some important minutes as maybe the 4th option on this Phoenix team that looked really good against San Antonio. Got to love Jason, always plays his heart out.
Steven Jackson -- I liked Steve during his one year that he gave us his best, and didn't consider himself the number 1 option. I'm glad he's gone now.
