A Warriors' Mentality

Anybody who knows me in real life will understand why I love this video. Also, I can basically guarantee that none of our female readers will laugh at this video.I met Clifford Rozier briefly at the 1993 World University Games, so I feel intimately connected to his obscure place in NBA history. Though not as well-known as his World University Games teammates as future NBA all-starts Michael Finley and Damon Stoudamire, or for that matter NCAA stand-outs Ed O'Bannon and Donald Williams, he nonetheless managed to post averages 6.8 points and 7.3 boards as a rookie, playing 22.3 minutes per game. Unfortunately for Clifford, verything went downhill from there. Sure, he's one of the few players in NBA history to have a season with a negative Player Efficiency Rating, but, damn, nobody blocked Gabonese and Estonian college students' shots into the fourth row of the stands quite like Clifford Rozier. Go easy, Cliff, wherever you are these days.

That video is pretty amazing - so many guys that I had completely forgotten had played for the Warriors. Clifford Rozier was a great one to finish off with, but I was a fan of the Andrew DeClercq call myself. I mean, it's not often that "c" and "q" appear next to each other in someone's name.
