:D :D :D :D :D


we're going to have to be patient, and probably lose a few of our favorite players, but hopefully, the new owners turn this franchise around and players start actually wanting to come here!!! that's what the fans deserve and the Bay Area market can support! best Monday in a long time!


I don't care who we lose, as long as it's no Curry or, if we don't have a better plan, Beans. I must admit I'll be rather pissed if we ditch Beans and go back to the "we have no NBA legit center" for a few more seasons.


Curry would be the biggest bummer to lose, only because we've just begun to see his brilliance in a Warrior uniform. There are a few others I would like to see stick around but I'm so ready for a new beginning I could even sacrifice them if it meant actually building a better team.
I'm sure many of the players, while unsure about where they will end up, are feeling pretty good about this news.

WARRIORS RETAIN GALATIOTO SPORTS PARTNERS TO CONDUCT SALE OF TEAM
Leading Sports Advisory and Finance Firm Has Participated In More Than 70 Major Sports Transactions

OAKLAND, Calif. – The Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association (NBA) have retained Galatioto Sports Partners (“GSP”) to conduct a sale of the Team, it was announced today. GSP, acting as the Club’s exclusive financial advisor, will manage all aspects of the sales process. As such, all related inquiries should be made directly to GSP.

Neither the Warriors nor GSP anticipate making any further public comments regarding the sales process until and unless a definitive agreement on a transaction is reached.

The Warriors, currently majority-owned by Christopher Cohan, are a premier NBA franchise located in the San Francisco Bay Area, the fifth-largest market in the NBA. The team plays its home games in Oakland, California, at Oracle Arena.

Galatioto Sports Partners, the leading sports advisory and finance firm, specializes in providing investment banking and innovative financing solutions to the global professional sports market. GSP was established in early 2005 by Salvatore Galatioto. The principals of the GSP have acted in a variety of capacities on more than 70 transactions in the major North American and European sports leagues.


Oh, god... seems like it's serious. I never thought I'd see this moment... but I don't want to say anything til it finally happens.

Ohh my god, seriously............COME ON PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ITS HAPPENING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No-one hires, and pays for the services of, a major sports franchise selling company if it isnt serious!!!!

I dont give a sh*t..............the days of the real Bigs who is stimulated, motivated and envigorated by his team are about to return my brothers!!!

We are standing on the presepice of what is the important period of our team, in most of our life times...........things can and WILL only get better from here, once this goes down, and as Ive said many times............this isnt a positive thing happening to us like a good trade or a good pick (because they can still go wrong and not turn out)............this is the BEST thing that has/will happen to our team in my lifetime, because there are no negatives and it can only improve us.

So get ready my brothers and sisters!!! this is it...............the future is coming soon.

Ps: I just put in another 2 Euros to finish this post.............Ill be back on Sunday to cyber jump for joy. :wink:

This is great news for us long suffering Warriors fans. I hope its Larry Ellison or Lucas that ends up bying the team, but anybody that is willing to come in and make the team competetive will work for me. I want an owner who isnt just looking for a new toy, but wants to destroy the competition.

I would like to see Jerry West in a consultants role and maybe Rick Barry as some sort of special assistant. I dont think RB would make a good coach, but he does have a lot to contribute to youngsters like we have here.

Let's have a coming out party!! :bday: :headbang:
It would sure be nice to have an organization that hit the ground running and managed our draft. I'm not sure if Ellison is now any more encouraged. After all, he's already tried, and failed.
It would be nice if we could get a new owner(s) who wanted to boost fan morale and reward the loyal fanbase with a juicy free agent purchase like the Giants did when they purchased from Lurie and then signed Bonds.

I agree. It would be awesome if the new owner wanted to make a splash. With a top 5 pick, all we really need is an impact PF and a guy like Evan Turner to transform this team.

Curry/Turner backcourt FTW.
