San Francisco Warriors: back to the NBA in 2017

BREAKING: Warriors Moving to SF in 2017

According to @GSWFastBreak, the Warriors have finalized plans to move from Oakland to San Francisco in 2017. The move would provide the Warriors with a brand new, modern, multi-use arena on Pier 30/32 that would be utilized not only for basketball but other various events. The privately funded arena — assuming all goes smoothly — would cut the tape before the 2017-2018 season.

The move to San Francisco shouldn’t be a surprise as owner Joe Lacob has made it clear of his plans for a move since his ownership began. Oracle Arena is currently the oldest arena in the NBA — it first opened in 1966 — and while renovations took place before the 1996-1997 season, the rust was clearly showing.

While many Warriors fans have fond memories of the arena, the move to San Francisco should be met with open arms. The move not only provides fans with a new arena, but gives potential free agents, players and coaches added incentive to come to the organization. Whether admitted or not, San Francisco is simply a sexier destination than Oakland.

Time and time again the Warriors have lost out on free agents, and while Oakland might not be the sole reason of players hesitance towards committing to sign, it surely didn’t help the cause.

The Warriors will now have a new home in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, awarding fans for their constant loyalty that has been apparent throughout their stay in Oakland.
An official announcement is expected next week.

I think they should change the name to San Francisco Warriors, but I doubt they'll do that.

This has been known for awhile around here. Once the 49ers finalized their move a little south to Santa Clara, this was a formality.

I really hate the idea of the arena on the pier, though. Traffic is already horrific around there as it is.

Yeah, I think they will try to rely on the mass transit, that would be a nightmare trying to deal with all the traffic.

People from outside areas will need to take ferries from surrounding cities, most likely. Or, they won't get to their seat until the 3rd or 4th.

They really need to get a bart station around there.

No one should be. It's going to be a nightmare getting in and out, for people attending and people driving through the city.

It'll look pretty, though!
