In 3 years Baron Davis was the Warriors fearleass bearded on the court leader who brought basketball back to 'Da Bay.' The Warriors became a sanctuary for people that had been written off. Our team played with boulders on their shoulders and shocked the world by becoming the first 8 seed to beat a 1 seed in a best of 7 series.

Baron Davis had to prove he could lead a team, follow the direction of a coach and stay injury free.

Jackson was red-tagged as a troublemaking thug. The infamous Pacers-Pistons brawl made him an outcast. He was the face of strip club shots fired until PacMan Jones, excuse Adam Jones decided to stake that claim.

Monta Ellis the skinny undersized Shooting Guard proved you can excel in the NBA without the size and without a 3 pt. shot but with Jordan like quickness and Jordan-like body control in the air.

Kelenna Azubuike a former 2nd round pick showed that through hardwork and perserverance, you can not only reach the NBA, but become a solid player as well.

Matt Barnes, a 12th man on the 76ers and Kings showed he can play when given a chance a was a big part of the Warriors upset of Dallas in 2007.

After signing former Warrior players to bloated contract such as Dunleavey, Murphy, Richardson and Adonal Foyle, GM Chris Mullin had to right the ship and did so in acquiring veteran players Jackson, Harrington to go with draftees Monta Ellis, Andris Biedrins, Pietrus and free agent finds Kelenna Azubuike and Matt Barnes. Mullin not only assembled a roster talented enough to compete in the toughest Western Conference ever, but he also managed to stockpile young talent in youngsters: Marco Belinelli, Brandan Wright, Anthony Randolph and Richard Hendrix. With his close relationship with Don Nelson, Chris Mullin was able to coax Nelson out of retirement.

Don Nelson, showed that he is indeed a brilliant basketball mind and great coach as he led the Warriors to their first playoff birth in 13 years managing to upset the #1 Mavs in the process. The high maintenance Baron Davis had career years under Nelson as did formerformer Bad boy Stephen Jackson who one of became 1 of 3 team captains along with Baron and Matt Barnes.

With their blend of veterans and talented young players, the Warriors are still in great position financially and roster wise.

So what should we make of Baron opting out? Nothing out the moment, as there is a good chance that Baron may resign with the Warriors, if he doesn't there are numerous directions in which the Warriors can go.
