The 2006-07 "We Believe Warriors" will hold a special place in the hearts of Golden State fans forever.
Dub Nation loves hearing stories related to that legendary squad.
So you should thank Monta Ellis for providing the latest fantastic tale.
The No. 40 overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft had the following exchange recently with SLAM magazine:
SLAM: Who was the funniest teammate you ever had?
Monta: Baron Davis, by far. I’ll tell you this, when it comes to BD, don’t ever bet him to do anything. Don’t ever dare him to do anything. Don’t ever crank up an idea where you even think that it might cross his mind because he’ll do it [laughs].
SLAM: Is there one thing you remember specifically that someone dared him to do?
Monta: One day, we had a [nationally televised] game. We were on a run and everybody was talking about us or whatever. He knew the camera was going to be on. They had him put this outfit on -- a cowboy outfit -- with the cowboy hat, the boots, the belt, everything. They bet him to do it. Like, I bet you won’t do this. They fixed the outfit up. It was crazy. I don’t know when in the world anybody would’ve worn it. BD wore it.
SLAM: Who told him to wear it?
Monta: Al [Harrington], Jack [Stephen Jackson], Matt [Barnes] and J-Rich [Jason Richardson].
SLAM: How did people react to it?
Monta: We didn’t do nothing but laugh. We were like, Man, he’s crazy. It was one of those outfits. Like, man, ain’t nobody supposed to come out of the house like that. He did that for a televised game.
Thank you Monta, and thank you BD.
Reminder -- during the 2007 playoffs, Davis averaged 25.3 points, 6.5 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 2.9 steals, while shooting over 51 percent from the field and better than 37 percent from deep.
He was really, really good.
