Larry Ellison, the fourth-wealthiest man in the world No. 1 in the Bay Area will be sitting courtside when LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers make their annual visit, according to a Comcast SportsNets report. That's where current managing partner Chris Cohan used to sit before the serial losing took its toll and he began sparing himself the humiliation.

Ellison has expressed an interest in owning the Warriors, and every player, team employee and fan should be forgiven for praying that he is serious.

Everyone at the game from Janitors to Security Guards to Cafe Lady to the second richest man in the buildings needs to scream for our future. I am definitely going. I have my brother's season tickets. We need to show that we want Larry Ellison to take over. We deserve him because we have been loyal for a loooooooooooooong time now.

People need to bring their We Believe shirts... posters with Larry Ellison's picture, shirts... jackets.... T-shirts cursing Cohan... whatever.

let's bring this back.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJ2sRsBDpdY
