Heard something funny the other day that Ellison buying the Warriors would be like Mark Cuban on steroids.

Sorry, but this might be the greatest day in the Warriors history

[h2]Warriors are officially for sale–Cohan out by August/September?[/h2]

* Gee, who was saying this back on July 3? Let me try to remember…  Oh, here’s a link.I’m putting this up because of the shills and Cohan-sponsored puppetswho furiously slashed at me for reporting it. Uh oh, shills and puppetsare in some trouble now.

Chris Cohan has officially put the Warriors up for sale and isn’t trying to deny it any more.

The Warriors just released a statement acknowledging that he has hired a company to seek an offer.

The company is Galatioto Sports Partners. You don’t hire thiscompany unless you’re selling and you don’t confirm it unless you’rethoroughly committed to getting the hell out.

Period.

Of course, Cohan has been unofficially looking for and listening tooffers for about 8 months now, despite the team’s fervent denials andblatant misdirection.

Larry Ellison is generally assumed to be the leading bidder sofar–with a bid that values the franchise at about $315M. Cohan owns 80%.

The Charlotte Bobcats were sold to Michael Jordan recently with areported valuing of just under $300M, though there were other factorsinvolved and I don’t believe anywhere close to that amount changedhands.

I’ve heard strong indications that there is at least one other groupthat has discussed buying the Warriors and moving them near AT&TPark, which I believe Ellison has also considered.

More to come, I’m sure.

Here’s the Warriors’ press release…

Oracle isn't awful but I'm all for them moving back to San Francisco
If they move the Warriors down to Mission Bay and further develop that area, it could be one of the best sports hubs in the country.

Oracle isn't that bad, but who wouldn't want a team in downtown SF?  SF or Oakland...

This is what Warriors fans have been asking for. It was past due and it couldve came at a better time. One thing though, this means the franchise will still be rebuilding mode for the next 3-5 years. If they move it to San Francisco, that's the best thing that can happen to them besides winning a 'chip. It'll also make it easier for me to get to the games...

SF residents. It would be a logistical nightmare.

Stay in Oakland, it's more easily accessible.

heck no!

a reason why players dont want to play with the warriors is because oakland is the type of place where some players came from, no way they want to go back there


move the team to San Jose
