'We Were a Bunch of Draymond Greens': How 'We Believe' Warriors Shook Up NBA
Rocky Widner/Getty Images Ric Bucher NBA Senior Writer The Golden State Warriors didn't start thinking about putting Matt Barnes back in one of their uniforms until Kevin Durant hyperextended his knee last month.

"I always wanted to come back here and be a Warrior," he says. "Always. No matter where I was. I want to be a part of this." "This" is the fulfillment of what he expected to achieve the first time here: winning a championship for the team's Bay Area fans.
