OK, kids. We all know that
some many Bay Area residents have hopped on the bearded bandwagon. While it’s nice to have fans (like Miss Alba, who isn’t even a bandwagoner anyway, since she’s a friend of Baron’s), we could do without “the subpar normal NBA crowd.” To prove your worth, match the obscure Golden State Warrior with his correct description.
