Coolhand Luke & Tre Eightman
How long have you been a Warriors fan?
We have both been fans since we were fresh out of the womb, but got hooked during the J-Rich era (despite the ugly unis).
Fav. Current Warrior? Why?
Coolhand Luke: Captain Stack Jack because he goes hard in the paint and harder in the stands.
Tre Eightman: Anthony Morrow because he has persevered even though he went undrafted and has crooked teeth.
Fav. All time Warrior? Why?
CHL: Sarunas Marciulionis because he has the tightest name in Warriors history.
TE: By far my favorite play is World B. Free aka.Lloyd Bernard Free. Find me a doper name in the NBA with the skill set he had. But I have a number of obscure players I loved who come in a close second. For instance, Bimbo Coles, Chris Gatling, Manute Bol and the biggest beast of them all- Rony Seikaly.
CHL: When Baron dunked on AK-47 and the arena went ape shit.
TE: The moment I heard the Warriors elected not to re-sign Erik Dampier.
Worst moment as a Warriors fan?
CHL: Draft day… every year. Somehow the Warriors always manage to draft a Dunleavy.
TE: When the Warriors let Rob Kurz walk. I thought he would be the cornerstone of our team for decades.
What’s your feelings on the current ownership/management of the Warriors?
Our mother taught us; if we don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.
You’re named Warriors GM, How would you improve the team? What changes do you think need to be made?
CHL: I would try to get my hands on Ron Artest and Leon Powe. Clearly, Artest is now a Laker and Powe is about to sign with the Cavs, but the W’s need some down-low muscle and savagery down on the blocks. Bonus points for bringing Powe (an Oakland Tech grad) back to Oakland and reuniting Artest and Captain Jack.
TE: I don’t know if the GM has the power, but I would have to change the logo with the quickness. I have heard the rumor that they are getting new uni’s for next year, but I will believe it when I see it. Oaklandish needs to design some straight Town uniforms.
You can bring any current NBA player to the Warriors, who would it be?
CHL: Lebron James, no question. He’s the best player in the league and is a one man urban redevelopment plan.
TE: Realistically, the Warriors need a lock down defender for the wing. Stack Jack is getting older and doesn’t quite have the skills on that end anymore. And no, Devean George is not the answer. But for old time sake, it would be funny to bring back Donyell Marshall. He constantly looks loaded and would fit in perfectly in Oakland.
Finish the sentence, When the warriors win the championship, I will…..?
CHL: Rub Chris Gatling’s steel plated head.
TE: Finally get to see what a championship parade looks like in Oakland.
