SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Former Golden State Warrior and Hall of Fame forward Rick Barry talked to KRON 4’s Will Tran at the Moscone Center in San Francisco Wednesday morning just days before Super Bowl 50.
Barry talked with Tran about the about the success of the 2015 NBA Champions.
“I’m really proud with the way they are approaching things right now,” Barry said when asked about the Warriors’ success.
Barry played for the San Francisco Warriors from 1965-1967 before playing in the ABA. He then rejoined the Golden State Warriors in 1972 and stayed until 1978.
When asked if he thinks the Warriors will get their record, Bary said “I don’t care and they don’t care, that’s the beauty of it.”
Barry said it’s not about the record, it’s about being back-to-back NBA Champions.
“If they play Warriors basketball…no team is good enough to beat them in the league this year.”
Barry is the only player ever to lead the NCAA, NBA, and ABA in scoring. In 1987, he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
