SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Now that the Golden State Warriors are headed to the NBA playoffs, the mayoral tug-of-war can begin.
“If you win, the championship parade has to be in Oakland I think,” said Mayor Jean Quan.
But across the Bay it appears San Francisco Mayor is pulling out all stops to impress the Warriors and to lure the fans. That’s likely because he seems to think the Warriors moving to his city’s waterfront beginning with the 2017 season is a foregone conclusion.
He’s ordered City Hall to be bathed in blue and gold as the team’s flag flies from the balcony. He’s even inviting fans to the waterfront to watch the Warriors’ televised games.
