Ending the Streak
Davis gives Warriors shot to end local skid from Inside Bay Area.com
RECENT HISTORY suggests we should be embarrassed by our pro sports teams, which have not given the Bay Area a reason for loud boasts or sustained braggadocio for 11 years, since 1994.
That's when the A's had future Hall of Famers hitting, pitching and managing. That was the last year the 49ers had future Hall of Famers on both sides of the ball. That was the last year the Raiders, then in Los Angeles, had an actual Hall of Famer, Art Shell, as head coach.
Coincidentally,'94 also is the year the Warriors — with an All-NBA selection, a Rookie of
the Year and a Dream Teamer — last made the playoffs.
So which team is most likely to break the dry spell, winning it all, reviving our swagger while convincing our best and brightest to flip a few flaming cars?
The Warriors. Who else?
