Jason Richardson looked back on the 2007 Golden State Warriors team, which revitalized the franchise forever.

Back in 2007, the ‘We Believe’ team finished the season with a 42-40 record and advanced to the postseason, where they eliminated the No. 1 seed Dallas Mavericks, which was the first such upset in a best-of-seven NBA series.

“That team was probably one of the closest teams that I was on. I think the next-closest team where the guys really got along was my Phoenix team in 2010. But that We Believe team was so special because, like I said, nobody gave us a chance.

At the time, I was coming off an injury and a lot of people were saying that I was overpaid and wasn’t worth it. We all had to band together and fight for each other. We were trying to prove that we could do this, especially with the way we played.

All of us were small, we were in your face, we shot a lot of threes, but we also played defense. It was incredible,” Richardson said in a recent appearance on The HoopsHype Podcast.
