Here’s the San Francisco Chronicle reporting on the Warrior and their plans for a future new arena in San Francisco:
Fresh off his trip to the Bay Area this month, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Saturday that the Warriors are “on track” to build a new arena for the 2018-19 season and praised the franchise’s latest plans for the state-of-the-art facility in San Francisco.
“In San Francisco, I’ve seen the plans, and I’ve sat with the ownership there,” said Silver, who attended the Warriors’ 128-114 victory over Dallas on Feb. 4. “I think it looks fantastic. It’s an incredible undertaking to build a new arena in San Francisco. They intend to privately finance it. I think that’s an incredible contribution on the part of these owners.
“It always amazes me in this day and age when there aren’t great, state-of-the-art arenas in any major city, because these are multiuse facilities. Basketball is, of course, 41 regular-season dates and some preseason. Hopefully, in the case of the Golden State Warriors this year, there will be a lot of playoff dates. But the majority of the dates are used for other programming in the community, whether it’s the circus, ice shows, graduations, concerts, you name it.”
