I'm so happy I think I'll masturbate(joke lol). But yes finally, maybe in 2-3 years we will be back in the playoffs. Next year will be a REAL rebuilding year and maybe the year after we will be a .500 win squad.

Well without knowing who the GM and Coach would be, I would be reluctant to say that, however this is exciting news any way you look at it.

this may be a bit off topic, but someone posted a link where kawakami claims that we are the 5th biggest market in the nba... i was trying to google the validity of this and was wondering if anyone could help me find some links to help me see where the dubs rank amongst other teams in terms of market???

I read the article on ESPN. If Ellison can get the team an convince West to run it, we'll be looking great in a few years.

Hmm, this all feels like a trap. A trap to get our hopes up, then smash them again into the cold hard earth. I'm not buying until it's sold.

If we somehow lose Curry in all this I'll be extremely pissed.

I think he'd be the one player who can feel safe

Warriors Retain GSP To Sell Franchise


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.
