Warriors Fans
 
Well since the NBA has been advertising their voting on NBA.com for the All Decade stuff, me being the huge Basketball/NBA fanatic/junkie that I am, got to thinking about All Time Teams for each franchise. Obviously some franchises have a longer history and tradition of top notch players than others, but it's still fun to see who would be the consensus All Franchise Teams going back to the very first NBA season to the present. I thought it might be a cool idea if I went to each team's forums and asked the fans of that team themselves who they felt were their favorite team's All Franchise Team. Once the All Franchise Team's were chosen, maybe we could post them on the main forum and it would be cool/interesting to see who have been the greatest players in a franchise's history according to the good fans of Insidehoops.com, and not some bigwig ESPN/media "experts" who rarely know what they're talking about anyways. So without further interruption, here's a list of players I've come up with to get this discussion going. Feel free to add others that I may have missed. You could choose five players based on each position, or just the five best players in general. So here we go:

Wilt Chamberlain
Paul Arizin
Nate Thurmond
Rick Barry
Chris Mullin
Sleepy Floyd
Al Attles
Tom Meschery
Tim Hardaway
Latrell Sprewell
Joe Fulks
Guy Rogers
Larry Smith
Mitch Richmond
Baron Davis
Neil Johnston
Bernard King
Jamaal Wilkes
Antawn Jamison

Don't know if this has been done before or not, but I hadn't seen anything like this on ISH before. Hopefully we can get some cool results!

Okay, I'llmake my picks. Though I do want to point out that I'm only 34 years old, so I'm not gonna be picking any of the players thatwere before my time as a fan. Anyway, I'm going total small ball for my starting 5...

C: Antawn Jamison
PF: Chris Mullin
SF: Mitch Richmond
SG: Monta Ellis
PG: Baron Davis

Gotta admit, picking BD over Hardaway was super tough... I could actually go with either of them in my starting 5 and be happy.

However, I'll take Ellis over Sprewell on any day.

I'd go with Sprewell over Ellis any day. People only seem to remember the way Sprewell left (choking PJ Carlisemo), but they have to remember what he offered the Warriors on the court. In his last full season as a Warriors he averaged 24.2 points, 6.3 assists, 3.6 rebounds while being one of the league's top defenders.
