The Warriors made it official this morning on behalf of majority owner Chris Cohan:
Cohan has hired a franchise-sale specialist, Galatioto Sports Partners, to manage the disposal of the team he ran into the ground during 16 seasons of ownership — 15 of those playoff-free.
It seems fairly obvious that Cohan is bringing in GSP to attempt to drive up the price from the $320 million value upon which Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison — the odds-on favorite to wind up as the next Warriors owner — based his early bid. According to Tim Kawakami, who has been all over this story for the better part of a year now, there are five or six other groups that have been waiting until now to get involved in the bidding.
As Crash Davis once said, “I have that dream all the time. We’re almost home.” Come discuss the Warriors’ attempt to avoid an 0-5 road trip in the New Orleans finale, right here.
Discuss the arrival of Stephen Curry, Charlotte’s Homecoming King, right here.
Coming late, thanks to technical problems: Warriors at Hawks, live and in (off-)color.
Do you ever wonder how often Otis Smith thanks his lucky stars he got out of Oakland in 2003 and went back to Orlando? I’ve got to think the answer is “every damn morning.” Discuss more Warriors-Magic fun right here.
