Jim Mora after the San Francisco 49ers (GO NINERS!) demolished his Indianapolis Colts 40-21 on November 25, 2001:

Let me start out saying this: Do NOT blame that game on the defense, OK? I don't care who you play, whether it's a high school team, a junior college team, a college team, much less an NFL team, when you turn the ball over five times . . . you ain't gonna beat anybody. That was a disgraceful performance. ... We gave it away. We gave them the frigging game. In my opinion, that sucked.
You can't turn it over five times. Holy crap. I don't know who the hell we think we are when we do something like that ... We've thrown [five] interceptions returned for touchdowns. That might be a league record. And we've still got six games left, so there's no telling how many we'll have. I mean, it's absolutely pitiful to play like that . . . Horrible. Just horrible. Horrible.
Playoffs? Don't talk about playoffs. Are you kidding me? Playoffs? I'm just hoping we can win a game, another game.


Yeah, we're talking about playoffs!

Thanks to thecardkid01 most of the Warriors' last playoff game (Game 3 in the 1st round against the Phoenix Suns back in 1994) is archived on YouTube. It's a 4 part mini-series YouTube classic!

For more on the Warriors and the PLAYOFFS?!! check out Jason Gurney's piece Don Nelson vs. Golden State's 12-Year Postseason Drought over at It visually and very powerfully illustrates how the Warriors have managed to reach the upper-echelon of... well, suck in the NBA. Shockingly, the Warriors don't have the #1 spot for longest playoff drought.

When do you think Warriors Nation will see the PLAYOFFS?!! 2k7? 2k8? 2k9?

Also, for fun let's do a "where are they now" on the players from that classic playoff game in the comments section.
