KCBS In Depth: Pros And Cons Of Warriors Arena In San Francisco
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:
