10 years ago in 2001, the Warriors drafted both Jason Richardson and Gilbert Arenas. They join forces now as savvy vets on the Magic to face their former team - an organization that looks completely different than when the two first entered the league.
But the results are still the same. Losing, losing and more losing.Don't expect that to change tonight either. The new Magic are starting to come together as they're on a 5 game win streak including wins over San Antonio, Boston, and the Knicks. The Warriors don't have an answer for Dwight Howard. Superman's weakness is kryptonite and the Warriors don't have any. They'll have to figure out something else, like shooting 65% for the game much like they did in the first half of the game against the Heat. Monta Ellis, Stephen Curry, David Lee, and Dorell Wright will all need to have excellent games.
Really though, I'm excited about this game for no other reason than to see JRich and Arenas back together. It won't be as fun as when they were on the Warriors, but nonetheless the two bring back nice memories.
Oh the memories, they were so young and innocent then...
Now only if Troy Murphy was traded to the Magic, there would be a reunion of the Warriors' 2001 draft class.
- Warriors by 1
- Monta outscores both JRich and Arenas combined
- Dwight Howard is a 20-20 man tonight
- Dorell Wright stays hot with 25+ points
