The 2006-07 Golden State Warriors pulled off one of the great upsets in NBA Playoff history, knocking off the top seeded Dallas Mavericks in the first round in six remarkable games. Back then, there were no “splash brothers” or record-breaking seasons. Stars like Baron Davis, Stephen Jackson, and current Warrior Matt Barnes fed off of the resounding energy inside Oracle Arena and shocked the world. While they lost to the Utah Jazz in the second round, the team and the energy they brought to the Bay Area have resonated ever since.
With the 10-year anniversary of the upset coming up this week, the organization announced it will celebrate that team during Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals Tuesday night at Oracle Arena.
From Warriors PR:
Several members of that iconic Warriors team will be on-hand for the celebration, including Baron Davis, Stephen Jackson, Jason Richardson, Monta Ellis, Al Harrington, Kelenna Azubuike, Adonal Foyle, Patrick O’Bryant and Zarko Cabarkapa. Another member of that team, Matt Barnes, is currently playing for the Warriors.
To help celebrate the occasion, limited-edition “We Believe” 10-Year Anniversary t-shirts will be available for purchase at WarriorsTeamStore.com starting Tuesday morning, and at Oracle Arena beginning on Tuesday night. These special gold t-shirts feature the same “We Believe” logo that was emblazoned across the front of the fan t-shirts given away at Oracle Arena throughout the 2007 NBA Playoffs, with a special 10-year logo on the sleeve.
