Barbosa was a teammate of Klay Thompson and Draymond Green with Golden State in 2014-15 and 2015-16, and was part of the Warriors' 2015 championship-winning team. Barbosa famously said the phrase used in the IG caption above after a Warriors' win, a bit of a premonition for the eventual title.

After leaving the Warriors in 2016, Barbosa played one season for the Phoenix Suns before completing his playing career with a few professional seasons in his native Brazil.
Barbosa will serve as a "player mentor coach" for the Warriors, and try to help Green and Thompson bring the Warriors back amongst the best teams in the Western Conference and restart the dynasty that brought three NBA championships back to the Bay Area.
