Players from the current Golden State Warriors basketball team are set to play against members of the 2007 team, which broke a 13-year skid and took the team to the playoffs with the “We Believe” mantra, at a San Jose Charity event on Nov. 5.

The 2007 Golden State Warriors qualified as the No. 8 seed during the 2007 playoffs and went on to beat the No. 1-seeded Dallas Mavericks before losing to the Utah Jazz in the Western Conference semi-finals.

The success of the 2007 club re-energized the mostly dormant fan base with a roster of young talent that specialized in a run-and-gun style of play, using speed and quickness to force turnovers and score on fast breaks.

“I was watching old clips of that 2007 playoff run, and I miss it,” says Nate Llorando, a San Francisco-based promoter who came up with the idea for the event. “I miss that team.”

Of the 2007 roster, Matt Barnes, Al Harrington and Jason Richardson are confirmed to play in the charity game. Orland Magic point guard Gilbert Arenas and Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Antawn Jamison, both former Warriors though not part of the “We Believe” team, have also confirmed to participate.

Golden State has not made the playoffs since the 2007 season, but the team has embarked on an extensive rebuilding process with new owners Joe Lacob and Bob Myers, as well as hall-of-fame Jerry West on the executive board. Mark Jackson was named head coach in June.

The roster is full of young players with potential, including point guard Stephen Curry, guard Dorell Wright, forward David Lee and guard Jeremy Lin, who will all be at the charity event. Star player Monta Ellis and recently drafted Jeremy Tyler will also be on the squad.

With a labor dispute threatening to cancel the entire season this year, the players, who would otherwise be preparing for basketball season to start, have time for the San Jose exhibition.

“The ultimate goal of this charity game was to raise money for Matt [Barnes]‘s foundation, but to also bring basketball back to the Bay Area,” Llorando says. “Golden State is the only [NBA] organization that hasn’t had any charity or exhibition games this year.”

Proceeds from the event will benefit Kaiser Permanente Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Barnes’ Athletes vs. Cancer Foundation.
