Sprewell is at court side in the Lakers-Knicks games. Must be a guest of the team.

But can you imagine the Warriors honoring him as part of the 75th anniversary celebrations, which have been going on at each home game?

Actually, no, I can't. Are they gonna invite Chris Webber too? Derek Fisher? Chris Washburn?

Of course not, given the way Sprewell and Webber left the team.

They were undeniably talented players though.

What about Jamal Wilkes or Gus Williams, who played well for the team, left them for other teams.

Or Gilbert Arenas, who left because the team bungled his contract. Can't recall if Gilbert was here for one or two seasons but for awhile, before the injury, he was the dominant guard in the league.

Sprewell was a talented player and fun to watch, especially during the Nelson era when the ball was moving. However, the James-Harden-lite years of Sprewell isolations was like no-anesthesia dental surgery.

Danuel House has occasional good games for the Rockets too.

Personally I'd like to see a Bimbo reunion.

Melo and amare should thrive in this offense. If Jeremy Tyler and cole Aldridge looked that good in summer league then us knick fans have a lot to be excited about. Make room for all the bandwagoners when we take off

Sacto Vs LAL an instant classic.

Classically bad that is!

Sacto can beat LAL is fun.

I feel a little bad about it but I do really enjoy the Lakers struggling. The thing is that they do have 3 players who can just decide to win the game and have a reasonable chance of doing it ... it makes me enjoy it more when none of them do, or when they try and fail.

Which current and recent retired NBA players should go into TV?

For me that is JJ Reddick, Draymond Green, and Giannis.

I REALLY hope LeBron doesn't.

I also hope Kendrick Perkins stops :)

Timberwolves Leandro Bolmaro. Had him top ten in the draft. After spending a year overseas, he has been called up after two strong games in the gleague. Keep an eye out!

Our favorite ex-Warrior D-Lo having an absolutely huge game in the clutch for Minny.

I'm ALMOST feeling sorry for Durant at this point....Having played with the best team in history.....and now he's playing with a fat slow Harden and NOT playing with Irving lol

KD bricked some key shots during crunch time tonight when the Nets were making their comeback.

It's a petty thing, but for some reason, the wispy, fuzzy hair on the back of Trae Young's head bugs me.

Return to Golden State Warriors
