This will be about the only time people will cheer for the Warriors

A bit old indeed, but this story, via Ben Maller, is too good and close to our heart to pass up.

The Golden State Warriors were in Indiana getting ready to take on the Pacers when the Colts were gearing up for their Super Bowl parade in Indianapolis.

Seems though, when the Warriors team bus was driving through Downtown, they received a hero's welcome because the fans thought it was the Colts.

If they only knew...

The Warriors, who are anything but consistent, would never get a cheery welcome in the Bay Area. If a player was spotted outside of the arena, people either wouldn't know the player was actually a player, or, in the case of Stephen Jackson, they'd probably run the other way.

Speaking of Jackson, he was on the second team bus -- do they really need two busses? -- which got in a bit of a fender bender. As cops came on the bus to get the usual info from the driver, coach Don Nelson had this to say.

"I told Jackson to get down and keep quiet."

Brilliant! Nellie giving Jackson shit about his legal problems! That's just priceless. Knowing Jackson, he probably pulled a gun on Coach. Hey, it beats choking him Latrell Sprewell style.

In other news: Duke lost its fourth straight game and Coach K subsequently decided to add an "L" in his last name, "for good measure."

The Warriors definitely need 2 buses... I mean, you can't expect 15 players plus how many coaches they have to fit on 1 bus, can you?!? ;)
