Rick Barry Rumors
Pelicans PR: With his ninth point tonight, Zion Williamson reached the 2,000 career point mark in just his 79th game, tying Rick Barry and Elgin Baylor for 10th fastest in NBA history. It marks the fewest number of games needed to reach 2,000 points since Michael Jordan (73) in 1985.

Steph Curry made some history during Friday’s Christmas Day game against the Milwaukee Bucks, as the Warriors star passed Hall of Famer Rick Barry (16,447) for second on the franchise’s all-time scoring list. Curry now trails only Wilt Chamberlain (17,783) for the most points in franchise history.
Golden State legend Rick Barry likes the idea of the eight-time NBA All-Star joining Golden State, but there is a certain pending free agent the Hall of Famer wants to see in a Warriors uniform next season. “The guy that I’d like to see them get — it would be unbelievable — I love Serge Ibaka,” Barry said Thursday morning on KNBR’s “Murph & Mac” show. “He can shoot the 3, he can rebound, block shots. That would be a heckuva addition to this team.”
Justin Kubatko: Bam Adebayo (23 years, 71 days) is the second-youngest player to record at least 30 points and 10 rebounds in a win that clinched a trip to the NBA Finals. Only Rick Barry (23 years, 15 days) did so at a younger age.
