Golden State V Chicago preview
Six days without Warriors Basketball. Might as well be the offseason. But tonight forget the long break, sub-.400 Bulls vs the .600 Warriors, the no 1 overall pick via trade Chris Webber in 1993 (Warriors) versus Joe Smith 1995 Warriors no 1 overall pick from the 1995 Draft or even the interesting tidbit of info that the last time Webber, Nellie and Barkley were ever on national TV Barkley exploded for 56 points in a exciting Suns Warriors playoff series. As hopfully anticpated the Dubs will let an American audience know that snubbing baron Davis was a big mistake. Understandbly the whole team must bwe slightly peeved that for the 13th straight year there was no Warrior representative at the All Star game but this team absolutely thrives in the role of the underdog. It's a big statement game and what better way to see at it then a TNT Thursday game.
With Barkley one of the TNT pundits and of course one of the best Forwards to play the game what better way to end this preview then to show Webber back in his day and dunk on him.
