The Warriors actually have a rich representation in this event with this list of participants

Chris Webber 1994 Ironic him and Nellie are reunited

Clifford Rozier 1995 At the time the Rookie game was changed to Rookie-Sophomore Game so players like Rozier would never be part of this type of game again

Joe Smith 1996 Can you say Bust

Antwan Jamison 2000 What a great idea to trade Antwan Jamison a future All Star so Mike Dunleavy could get more playing time.

Marc Jackson 2001 Unstoppable at all aspects of his game

Jason Richardson 2002 and 2003 Can you say MVP?

Gilbert Arenas 2003 Had he stayed in oaktown who knows what could have happenned

Troy Murphy 2003 Today mullin claimed the reason he gave Murphy a $60 million dollar extension was the exposure this type of game. Well I wished he would have said that

Mike Dunleavy 2004 Excuses to the fans and coaches yawn he was a bust

Monta Ellis-2007 From being compared to Agent Zero to now being touted as one of the top 10 Guards in the Western Conference. A long way from Lakewood Missippissi

Al Hortford doesn't get any blocks
Bargnani hits a dozen 3's
Durrant gets 26 points
Sophomores win by 15

Seriously Rozier of all people

Keep it locked on Irish Warriors for more blanket coverage of All Star Weekend
