OAKLAND (Bleacher Report) — Unlikely as it is to sustain momentum for four whole years, the Golden State Warriors are building something already.
Their new waterfront arena in San Francisco is planned for 2017. It will be a game changer in every way, turning an admirable niche team in Oakland into a mainstream, marquee destination in San Francisco.
Up there rivaling the mighty big-city names of the Knicks, Bulls and Lakers will be the Warriors.
So it was a particularly interesting point that Warriors coach Mark Jackson insisted on making Monday night. Jackson’s team overwhelmed the Lakers in Oakland, and he wanted everyone to know that the story wasn’t just the Lakers losing.
The Warriors have been winning, and they deserve some respect for it.
