As of right now, the Warriors are 17-9. We are 3 games behind the division leaders, Clippers, and 4 games behind the Conference leader, OKC. I think it is about time we start to appropriately identify the team. A Team Nickname? A Team Chant? Something that says watch out for those Warriors. So to draw some inspiration, lets revisit the past teams.
Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond, Chris Mullen. The high scoring trio made Warriors games exciting to watch. Need I say more?
WE BELIEVE SQUAD
Forced to go 16-5 to reach the playoffs for the first time in 12 years, this team showed us what it really means to believe. I loved watching every game and getting closer every day. I still get chills thinking about the playoff game I attended. I think every player on the team was hurt at some time during the season and they still managed to upset the number one team, Mav's. The best part was in the last few games to make playoffs where the usual chants of M-V-P (For Baron Davis) or Lets-Go-Warriors became We-Be-Lieve! We-Bel-ieve!
Of course, this song became popular!
This nickname really didnt stick around, but I like the throw back to the original team. David, Monta, and Curry started to establish a team in the Bay Area. We even came back from a 17 point deficit to beat the Heat in overtime. We eventually traded Monta Ellis for a team that brings Bogut to the Bay. Although I still have reservations about Bogut because he is always hurt.
So lets look at the current team.
The Warriors make history with an incredible 6-1 road trip including Green's game winning shot over the NBA champions.

Some people say "We Believe 2.0" but in my opinion, We Believe says we are the underdogs. We face the Lakers at home tomorrow in a big statement game. When we win, hopefully everyone sees that
OK, I just made that up. But I like it a lot better than 2.0. Also, with Brookyn Nets establishing themselves, I really like their new chant seen here.
Maybe we can start chanting, WARRIORS, Come out and play-e-ay!
Anyways, I think I'm starting to rant now. But how awesome would a new chant be. We can officially start it at the next GSOM Night. Shoot me your own ideas too. I love to hear what you guys think.
