The Golden State Warriors’ home court has been in Oakland for over 45 seasons and it will remain that way with your help.
From those of us who remember when former Warriors head coach, Al Attles jumped out of his seat and onto the court in support of his star player, in the Warriors 1975 championship victory, to those who celebrated after the 2015 championship, we do not have to settle for the Warriors leaving Oakland, CA.
Warriors fans should take heart in the fact, the San Francisco Giants were sold twice with the intent to relocate the team to Toronto, Canada and St. Petersburg, Florida respectively. In both instances victory for local fans was snatched from defeat because people in the City cared too much to let it happen.
In similar fashion, Oakland is not going to sit back and watch the current ownership group pack up the team and move across the bay - no disrespect to San Francisco.
With cranes in place at the Mission Bay arena site --a plan to keep the Warriors in Oakland is being developed in San Francisco, by fans who love Oakland, CA too much to sit back, just for the sake of having city bragging rights.
Make your voices heard as loud and proud as you are of the Warriors. And let the team owners know "ROARACLE" might be replaced, but the place is in Oakland.
