Oracle CEO Larry Ellison will not be the next owner of the Golden State Warriors, according to a source close to the situation.

A potential deal between Ellison’s consortium, which includes the current Warriors’ minority ownership group, has fallen through, according to that source.

That would seem to mean that the next owner of the Warriors will be a group led by Mandalay Entertainment CEO Peter Guber and Joe Lacob, a minority owner of the Boston Celtics.

I still think its the Kings who would move to Vegas. There have been rumors about that for years. If the Warriors move, I guess I will now be a Sac fan...****

The Warriors aren't going anywhere, their fan base is too strong in the Bay Area. Not to mention the new guy is tied to a company here in Menlo Park

With then name of the group getting the dubs being "Mandalay Entertainment" yes Mandalay as in Mandalay Bay the Las Vegas hotel this is all i have to say.........

Warriors fans are the best fans in any sport. This is
one of the worst days ever, we have loved and supported the DUBS
through ALL the BAD years and still poor are heart and soles in to every
game.......and this is what we get in return!!! thanks for all the
great years in the bay but the Golden State Warriors will soon be known
as the Las Vegas Warriors! Now all we can do is wait for Larry Ellison
to get a team and move them to San Jose! Thank you golden state for all the memories (2007 playoffs) you will be missed and loved in the hearts of many for ever!

Hey guys our new owner spent record price $450 mil, who would buy our
team that sucked for over 10 years? I guess our new owner really cares
and oracle owner le who's got enough money didn't want to spend that much.. Cheap *****.

new owner see the potential... larry ellison makes a business move... he kept his composure and strategy... he doesnt want to spend 450 mil on a team that is not in the playoffs...

the new owner on the other hand saw the potential to be money makers... imagine, if warriors are selling out tickets on a LOSING franchise... that means they are still raking money... imagine if they become a WINNING franchise... it will be and investment well spent

R U fricken kidding me? oh well.. if this report is indeed true, lets give the new owner a big:clap: He's better than Cohan and we should also see what his vision is before rushing to judgement about him like we did Larry Riley and old man Riley's done a 'heckofa job (Bush reference) .' ;) for what he's been probably presented with..

Calling Cohan the most hated man in NBA is a severe understatement which is also a severe understatement

WestCoastPhan
07-15-2010, 03:39 PM
You had to know Cohan was going to pull a dick move till the very end. If Larry wanted to be the new Owner that bad, he could have upped his offer, it's not like it's a huge difference for him financially.

I cant believe this ****.

07-15-2010, 03:41 PM
Cohan is rertarded he is soo greedy he wanted to get every penny out of these people and he got 450...u never know this could actually backfire really quickly and hurt the Warriors long term

WestCoastPhan
07-15-2010, 03:48 PM
The worst possible outcome is Larry Ellison finally gets a team and moves them to San Jose and cuts into the Warriors market. I dont see it as a likely possibility, but nothing ever surprises me when it comes to the Warriors bad luck.
