Golden State D-Leaguers, I'm Going To Miss You: A Brief History

Even Don Nelson, who was supposedly anti-rookies, came around to embrace the D-League call-ups.

With last night being the, uh, last night for the NBA's regular season, I decided I had to catch one last Golden State Warriors game - for old time's sake.

The season finale didn't disappoint, either, as Golden State Of Mind's Atma Brother ONE explains in his recap of the Warriors 122-116 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.  The Warriors fought hard, played with heart, hustled and did everything else one would associate with a team that started three D-Leaguers surrounded by a couple of guys that seemed to want to win more than anything else - even for a team that finished just 26-56 on the season.

This season, I was impressed with a lot of the things the Warriors did - particularly from a D-League standpoint.

After the jump, I went through the SBNation archives to put together a time line of this season's Golden State D-Leaguers.

  • 20th - The Warriors first foray into the D-League talent pool came, actually, before the D-League's season even started when they signed former Fort Wayne Mad Ant Chris Hunter.  Hunter came out on fire in his first game as a Warrior and continued to play solid all season.

Coddamn, I'm going to miss this team.
