Honorary Warriors For Life, Master List and Active Polls

This is to reminisce about players, don’t take this too seriously.

I’ll keep this post updated with a master list of our Honorary Warriors For Life Project and links to our current polls. Results for individual players will have their own articles.

Current Active Polls

Introducing Honorary Warriors For Life

The concept is simple. There are some players who are not in the Warriors organization, but Warriors fans will still root for anyway (as long as no Warriors interests are at stake). So they are not a part of Dub Nation, but they still are welcomed into Dub Nation. This is very often because they are former Warriors players, but not always.

Each person is linked to their full article, plus their splits of answers to the poll question

Dub Nation, imagine you see X in a game with no practical implications for the Warriors. (So not against GSW, ignore draft picks, playoff seeding, etc.) Do you want them to do well or poorly?

listing % replies in the order of Well / Poorly / Don’t Care Either Way / Don’t Know Who They Are.

The List of Honorary Warriors For Life

A huge majority of Dub Nation is pulling for these people. These beloved people got a straight Well vote of more than 75%.

The List of Honorary Warriors

A majority of Dub Nation that knows them is still pulling for them. These well-liked people got at least 50% Well vote out of those who know them.

Limbo: Polled But Not Qualifying

These people were polled and did not reach any of the above threshold. They can be re-polled in the future if there is popular demand.

Warriors Villains

A majority of Warriors fans who know them are wanting these people to do Poorly.

Warriors Villains For Life

An amazing 75% of Dub Nation is wanting these people to do Poorly. Currently one man stands alone at the bottom of the barrel, but more are coming.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who are you to decide such weighty matters?

Hello, I’m Eric Apricot. And relax, this is just a chance to reminisce about players. No one really cares what I think.

Why isn’t X in this list???

They haven’t been polled yet. Nominate them in a comment on one of the main HWFL articles. Comments are closed on this article.

Why isn’t X rated higher??? This is ridiculous / an outrage / meaningless without Y being higher!!!

Go talk to Dub Nation. I just report the poll results, and yes the poll is unscientific (see below), but my bet is that a lot of Dub Nation doesn’t agree with you.

Aren’t your little polls meaningless?

Yes. There are self-selection sampling issues, I disproportionately sample from people in my Twitter followers, the polls run for different lengths on different days of the weeks, etc etc etc.


The margin of error on a randomly sampled poll of a hundred people is under 10%.

After running a hundred of these casual polls, I have come to believe they do represent the general sentiment of online Dub Nation, + / - about 10%. If you disagree, I’d love to see you run my poll question in a more scientific way. Seriously, share the results with me.

Come on, isn’t this just a popularity contest?

Yes. Your point is…?

Where is Steph???

This is for people not in the Warriors organization only.
