Sadly, it looks like NBA players doing charity games and exhibitions will have to give us our basketball fix for a while.
In the Bay Area they have an interesting idea starting to take form, reports Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com.
Apparently, plans are in the works to get a game together between current Warriors and the “We Believe” Warriors from 2007.
The Warriors have made the playoffs one time in the last 17 seasons (that’s why the ownership change there last year is so important) but that one time was spectacular. In 2007 the eight-seeded Warrriors knocked off a 67-win Mavericks team behind the best basketball of Baron Davis’ life, while Stephen Jackson and Jason Richardson filled up the net. It was one of the most electric playoff series in recent memory.
Put that together — it looks like Oct. 29 in San Jose, but details are still being finalized — and you could have one of the more interesting charity games of the lockout. Hope it happens.
