SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Former San Francisco Mayor Art Agnos and Golden State Warriors’ President Rick Welts face off on the opposing arguments over building a sports arena on San Francisco’s waterfront that the Warriors would use to play.
Mayor Ed Lee has already argued extensively for what would be a multi-purpose arena that would relocate the NBA team from Oakland to SF, saying that the sports/ entertainment complex would boost the economy and fix up the deteriorating piers just south of the Bay Bridge.
Opponents argue the structure would block views of the Bay, would create a traffic gridlock along the Embarcadero and wouldn’t be a good deal for the city.
You can listen to their arguments in full as the team’s president and former Mayor Agnos list off the pros and cons here:
