HARRISON BARNES SAYS DECISION TO LEAVE THE WARRIORS ‘WAS MORE SO MADE FOR ME’

+

Team USA guard Klay Thompson expects Barnes and his other ex-Warriors teammates to be fondly remembered for their roles in winning an NBA title in 2015. Golden State also made a second-straight Finals appearance last season after winning an NBA-record 73 games during the regular season before losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Finals. The memorable and successful Warriors team from the past two seasons was very close and on the same page on the floor. "It’s part of the biz. It’s unfortunate," Thompson said. "We will miss those guys dearly. There wasn’t one bad guy on the team. We had so many good times together the last couple of years. We will cherish that for a lifetime. "I still will hit them up every offseason. I hope ‘Dub Nation’ will give them a big send-off and a big ‘standing O’ every time they see them because those guys sacrificed a lot to win and did everything they could for this organization."
