Here’s something you may not have noticed: there were two Wrights on the Golden State Warriors last season.  First, there was Dorell… the three-point specialist who has since been moved to Philly.  And then there was Chris, who averaged 2.9 PPG whilst playing primarily in lopsided contests.

If this is something you already happened to know, it stands to figure that you fall into one of the following categories: A) You are a hardcore Warriors fan, or B) You watched a nationally-televised contest between Golden State and San Antonio on April 26th, 2012.  Since exactly 76 people watched this game—a season finale that Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, Stephen Jackson, Kawhi Leonard, and Gary Neal observed from the sidelines—it’s probably not likely that a lot of folks outside of the Bay Area have any recollection of Chris Wright’s 25-point outburst, during which he dunked the ball seven different times.

And that, my friends, is half the reason why I bring it to your attention today.  The other half?  Wright has been signed to a non-guaranteed contract by the Toronto Raptors, who will offer him an opportunity to show his stuff during training camp.

Some say you’re only as good as your last game.  If we are to apply this logic to the case of Chris Wright, then it would appear that the Raptors have just discovered their own Blake Griffin.  I think I’d argue that his athletic explosion was heavily influenced by a variety of unusual circumstances, but hey, I’ve been wrong before.
