Warriors Fans Boo Owner Joe Lacob During Chris Mullin Jersey Retirement

OAKLAND (CBS) – It was supposed to be a special night for Golden State Warriors legend Chris Mullin, as the team honored him with an elaborate jersey retirement ceremony for his No. 17 during Monday night’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Unfortunately, Warriors fans aren’t too hot on owner Joe Lacob right now. In fact, the Oracle Arena crowd booed Lacob mercilessly when he took the microphone to say a few words during the halftime presentation. What did Lacob do to draw their ire? Well, he recently traded star guard Monta Ellis to the Milwaukee Bucks for injured center Andrew Bogut. And, prior to the season, coach Mark Jackson guaranteed a playoff berth, but the Warriors once again are destined for the lottery.
