Members of the 49ers were on hand to watch Steph Curry and the Warriors defeat the 76ers at the Chase Center on Tuesday night.

For some time, the Golden State Warriors were a dynasty-type organization that was the most dangerous and potent team within the entire NBA.

Greatness could recognize greatness.

And while the Dubs' reign atop the NBA has waned, many of the familiar faces are still very much there, including Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

Likewise, plenty of the San Francisco 49ers' familiar faces who have been around for a few years are also willing to recognize greatness.

Or, in the case of Golden State hosting the Super Bowl-bound Niners for a Tuesday night game at the Chase Center in San Francisco, it's the Warriors recognizing the 49ers' own greatness.

Warriors welcome and recognize Super Bowl-bound 49ers

Ironically enough, the Dubs were hosting the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night, and the Niners have no shortage of stories against their own Philly rivals after what happened last season in the NFC Championship game and this year during the regular season.

Plenty of San Francisco's best attended, too, including tight end George Kittle, left tackle Trent Williams, wide receivers Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel, and even defensive tackle Arik Armstead (a Sacramento Kings fan).

Needless to say, the Bay Area is united behind the 49ers.

Golden State won 119-107, making the Niners' trip to the Chase Center that much more worthwhile.

“Got the 49ers in the building,” Curry told NBC Sports Bay Area. “Showing that NFC Championship love, gonna get that Super Bowl. Maybe inspired us a little bit.”

The Niners, meanwhile, will play the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII on Feb. 11, and the Warriors can hope that the Bay Area winds up with yet another championship under its belt.

After all, Golden State has certainly done its job in that regard in recent years.
