Some preseason Warriors promises being broken
The lack of an All-Star is the first of the owners' contracted promises to season-ticket holders that has not been achieved. The Warriors also promised 25 home wins - of course, that was before the lockout reduced the number of home games from 41 to 33. At 6-8 in Oracle Arena, they would have to win the remaining 19 home games.
They also guaranteed a playoff berth, which would require jumping five teams while playing a brutal schedule in the final two-thirds of the season.
Since the Warriors have no All-Star for the 15th consecutive season, all season-ticket holders will receive an autographed All-Star item, according to the contract. Also, they will be entered into a sweepstakes to win a trip to Orlando for the game.
If the Warriors fail to win out at home, season-ticket holders will be invited to a two-hour autograph session with the team at Oracle. If they miss the playoffs, ticket prices will not increase next season.
