Hardwood Classics Tributes
The Golden State Warriors will continue their celebration of NBA Hardwood Classics Month with a special tribute to Hall of Famer Rick Barry on Wednesday, February 9, when the team plays host to the Denver Nuggets at Oracle Arena, it was announced today. During Hardwood Classics Month, the team will pay tribute to its past by donning classic uniforms from the 1974-75 season, when Barry led the Warriors to an NBA Championship.

On Wednesday, and at several games during NBA Hardwood Classics Month, the Warriors will wear replicas of the team’s yellow home uniform from the 1974-75 campaign, which feature the State of California with a prominent northern star placed over the Bay Area to represent the team’s home in the Golden State. Additionally, as a tribute to former Warriors’ owner Franklin Mieuli, who passed away last summer, a circular black patch featuring a blue & gold deerstalker cap similar to the one Mieuli was famous for wearing has been added to the Hardwood Classic uniforms.


For each of the Hardwood Classic Nights in February, the Warriors are offering a special ticket package and will honor many of the famous figures that contributed to the memorable 1974-75 NBA Championship. Here are the details and ticket offer for Wednesday night’s game:
