6. Favorite We Believe/Matt Barnes memory?

"Carlos Murillo: We Believe was so amazing and there’s so many memories to choose from. I remember how exciting it was to watch Matt Barnes take off his jersey and wave a yellow “We Believe” t-shirt around in the air after they defeated the Dallas Mavericks. That was such a special moment. The best moment from that whole run was Baron Davis dunking on Andrei Kirilenko. It was easily one of the best in-game dunks in league history despite it lowkey being an offensive foul."

Charles Rahrig V: How could it be anything other than seven threes in a game? It’s the night he (Matt Barnes) established himself as one of the core members of that team.

"Eric He: Him (Matt Barnes) holding Baron Davis back from the crowd after Baron hit this game-winner against Houston. I don’t know, that just sticks out to me."

Michael Shultz: My favorite Matt Barnes memory was in Game 6 against the Dallas Mavericks. The Warriors were on a 16-0 run in the 3rd quarter when Barnes drove down the lane and served up a left-handed facial on MVP, Dirk Nowitzki. The Warriors would go on to beat the Mavericks in that 6th game, becoming the first 8th seed to beat a number one seed in a seven game series in NBA history.

"Derek Tahara: My favorite We Believe moment was Baron Davis‘ half court shot in Game 4 against the Mavericks in the first round because I was at that game and I was in shock and awe that he made that heave just as the first half ended."

Ryan Viera: My favorite We Believe memory is definitely Baron Davis‘ dunk over Andrei Kirilenko. I kept the SF Chronicle front page with that picture up in my room for years as a constant reminder of how fun that season was. My favorite Matt Barnes memory is from his days in Orlando when he tried to get Kobe to flinch by pretending to throw the ball at him, but Kobe wasn’t phased in the least. Legend.
