Let’s be honest here. There’s no denying that in 2007, the Warriors had the best fans ever, and that has carried over, despite lack of playoff appearances as well as disparity over and over again. The fans have remained faithful, no matter what. Based on the countless sellouts, one may have assumed that the Warriors were a playoff team. It really bubbled over when 19,000 Warrior fans willingly dressed in all white: a playoff atmosphere against the Clippers. Whiteout Wednesday.
Let’s take a look at the amazing fans. 2007-present.
Well, for a ‘game 3′, the fans were surely into it. Knowing that the Warriors were at a disadvantage against the Jazz, the fans were extremely loud and pushed the Warriors into a victory.
Baron Davis hits the game winner. This was the season that the Celtics won the championship and that’s saying something. The largest crowd to ever be at a Warriors game: 20,711, showed up. With all the Celtic bandwagon, the Warrior fans were able to push through it and provide a huge presence.
Speaking for most Warrior fans, I’m sure many were upset at Monta Ellis for his Moped Incident. Nevertheless, he strived to get back to the court. The Warriors’, at this time, best player, Stephen Jackson had trouble leading the team. Playoff hopes were already bleak when Ellis arrived back on the scene, the fans knew this.
Yes, I know its an extremely long video, but don’t worry it’s entertaining. The Lakers obviously have a lot of fans up in Northern California, so generally it was a tough game for the Dubs. They were, however, almost able to beat the Lakers with their squad of D-Leaguers. Other than Monta Ellis, Corey Maggette, and Stephen Curry, the Warriors were pretty much at the mercy of the Lakers. The fans knew this, but still had faith, and it got the Warriors to a very close game.
How good does it feel to hit the shot and hear everyone cheer for your team?
Who doesn’t like an incredible facial dunk. Harrison Barnes’ facial on Nikola Pekovic wasn’t just a dunk. It was a symbol that the Warriors were back. And the fans.. they knew exactly what was happening.
