Knew the Warriors were headed back to San Francisco. Maybe they'll bring the Sharks with them. HP Pavilion looks kinda dumpy.
The females in the establishment start admiring Dirty for his assets, which just causes Dirty to return to the situation at hand: his money. He asks for the females' assistance in rectifying the situation, and subsequently asks them to expose their nether regions. Dirty finishes off the song with some nonsensical lyrics, that clearly imply his rising anger for the missing money.

Have you ever been to the HP Pavilion? It's a very nice arena, the opposite of "dumpy". Plus the Sharks wouldn't leave. They have a sweatheart deal at the Pavilion where they get a cut of all event revenues and full control of the place (that and they're owned by Silicon Valley interests anyway). But a new arena for the Warriors in SF would be a great idea. SF hasn't had it's own arena... well ever. The Cow Palace is actually in Daly City.

And while it's big news, it's not a huge shock as you say. I mean they didn't make this their alternate logo on a whim...

It's not really dumpy. It's just bright white and industrial as :censored:

And that 1980's sounding steampipe organ that plays the same three notes every break in the action :lol:

Other than that it looks like a pretty nice arena. I can see why the Warriors would rather have a new arena in San Francisco than move down to San Jose, though

Oh for sure. They're own waterfront arena in concert with the Giants. The Warriors would be dumb not to explore it. But the Sharks I think will be content to stay in SJ, they've got a sweatheart deal there that they'd never be able to replicate even in SF.

Oden over Durant was completely self-inflicted. It was obvious, even then, that Durant would be the better choice.

Not much of a fight. So far they've yet to say how they'd pay for it but estimate it'll cost 2 billion dollars minimum.

Didn't the Warriors' arena get renovated not that long ago?

Mid 90's. But it has underlying problems stemming from being a 1966 vintage stadium that the renovation didn't address. And it's location is not ideal in the modern world (ie: it's nowhere near downtown).

Nice job, Stern. Putting people (those who work in the arenas) back to work on Christmas day.

No it wasn't. A lot of people thought highly of Oden.

The only thing that made Oden over a Durant a bad call was the fact that the Blazers had to know of Oden's knee problems and if they didn't then they were dumb. So brash or stupid, take your pick.

You don't take a chance on an injury prone player when you have a guy right behind him who's just as good.

While it from 1995-96 when the arena bowl was redone to include suites and clubs, footprint of the facility was not increased although it still seats more for basketball than Staples Center. In addition, the former ownership group (Chris Cohan) and the new ownership did not pay back rent for years and just got settled. The new ownership group is as short on cash as Cohan was and this CBA with no hard salary cap is their worst nightmare. GSW has has very loyal fans and sellouts with $hitty teams to watch for 41 games/year. They picked a co-owner of the Celtics (Lacob) over a person who definitely has the cash, Oracle founder Larry Ellison.

Seattle city officials have been approached by a private group looking to build a basketball arena in the Sodo District near Safeco Field in the hopes of attracting an NBA franchise, according to two sources who have been briefed on the talks.
