The Golden State Warriors in 2007 playoffs had one of the biggest upsets in NBA history when they beat the first seed Dallas Mavericks in the first round. A team that featured Matt Barnes, Stephen Jackson and Baron Davis surprised the Dallas Mavericks led by Dirk Nowitzki in a six games series. Warriors came into the playoffs as a team that had nothing to lose and they displayed tremendous style of basketball the Mavs had no answer for throughout the entire series.

After they won game six, which surprised them as well, the teams head-coach Don Nelson threw a party to celebrate, and according to Matt Barnes, it was one of the craziest parties in his life. Barnes said there were numerous famous people at his penthouse, and the craziest part of the story is that Nelson told everybody to smoke some weed with Woody Allen, who was also attending the party. Snoop Dogg also joined in on the party, and Barnes said he is one of the coolest people he ever met.

"We got up to (Don Nelson's) penthouse in Lake Merritt, and he tells us, 'Woody's in the back rolling doobies fellas, go back there. It was Woody Allen rolling doobies, and our coach is telling us to go back there and smoke with him. Nelly had the whole roof, and we go up, and there's Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson, Owen Wilson, and Snoop. We ended up going out to a club in San Francisco and lived it up after that, and then we went back to Snoop's hotel and blew it down. There was so much smoke in the room, they came knocking on the door, and we were thinking, 'Oh shit, here we go.' They came in, unscrewed the window, opened them up, so the smoke went out, asked us if we needed anything, and they left. They helped him vent the room. I'd never seen anything like that before. Only Snoop. The legendary Snoop."
