Those fans are idiots for

1.) Booing the man who they gave their money to by attending that game...the man who is trying to turn the franchise around.

2.) Ruining Mullins night

3.) Still *****ing about the Monta trade when they were going no where with him as their number one option and failing to realize that they traded a small for a big which is rare.

I swear Warriors fans overrate their player so much. They're too busy jizzing their pants whenever Monta dunks and are too stupid to realize how many points he allows his opponents to score and how terrible he is on defense.

1. Monta has nothing to do with this. Most of them weren't booing Lacob because of Monta trade. They were booing Lacob because he went out of his way to promise a playoff run this year. He even hired a coach who went out of his way to guarantee a playoff run.

2. I agree the booing was classless. Mullin did a lot for the team and he didn't deserve to have his special night ruined right in front of his daughter. Those boo-ers do not define the whole fan base.

3. CityofChaos, Warriors weren't going anywhere with Monta because he never had a decent team to work with, had different coaches almost every year and coaches with no emphasis on defense. Mark Jackson talks defense but he hadn't improved it at all even with a defensive stopper in the middle.

However, that is now part of Warriors history. Monta has moved on. Team has moved on and fans should move on as well. Everyone knows I am a big Monta fan. I have moved on (except I will additionally follow Bucks to see how he does there with a decent team ).

Joe looks very upset there... I must say he is one of the energetic owners in the league and did everything possible to lift the team to the next level. he does not deserve to be treated this way on a historic night for the franchise.

Golden State fans didn't help the Monta Ellis situation neither can do anything about it anymore. With these actions they might have lost another and bigger asset, the owner. and who knows, might have cost them the much bigger picture... the franchise...

Good thing this wasnt in Philly or it would be all over every major sports news program. Well at least they didnt boo Santa Claus 60 years ago,right???

Look, Im all for a fans right to boo, but not in this situation. Someone's jersey is going up in the rafters, you need to let them have their night.

Im sorry, but he is a overrated chucker who contributes nothing outside of jacking up shots for points. He is a complimentary player with no defensive upside. You guys should be thrilled to move on and start bringing in players who can change the culture.

Once again, not baiting, but that is my honest assessment of Monta Ellis

Wow i expected it just to be one round of boos but I just watched it and they interrupted his speech and he was shaken by it. He didn't even get to introduce Chris Mullin. These fans booing are the fans that dont even know that our franchise is setup for success better than we were last week. Rick Barry was upset too. It's sad they didn't even have a proper ceremony for Chris Mullin.

I'd rather be perennial playoff contenders with

Curry
Thompson
Barnes/1st round pick
Lee
Bogut

than get swept in the first round this year by OKC. It's about long term success and Lacob deserves more than 2 years to be judged. I felt like Lacob wanted to cry and I feel REALLY bad for him.

I wouldn't be surprised or mad if Lacob just ****s the Warriors over now. I doubt he will, but it would be understandable.

Bogut, when healthy, is a top 5 center in the NBA.
This move also allows Curry more of an opportunity to have more control of the offense and let most plays run through him. He's got a very bright future.
Rookie Klay Thompson is a nice young talent that is just starting to put things together.
In addition, RJ was a solid acquisition as well. He adds leadership, experience and still has some game left in him.

Curry/Thompson/RJ/Lee/Bogut with Nate, Rush, Wright and Biedrins coming off the bench.. doesn't look to shabby if David Lee can continue picking up his play and Curry has a better 2nd half than the 1st.

Monta is beast
03-20-2012, 03:36 AM
What's funny is now the Warriors fans are going to be considered bad. Which couldn't be further from the truth. It's just that the fans can seperate what Cohan did from what Lacob has done, and with him promising the playoff this season just makes that worse, and then trading the most beloved player the Warriors have had in the last 20 years, if not ever, it's just getting old.


we're only classless when we display our frustration but "the best fans in the nba" when we open our wallets #gtfo with that!!

That about sums up what all Warriors fans have been feeling for 32 years.

Very true.
I have faith in this guy but he should have never made a guarantee like that. And, I doubt those fans that were booing would not have done so if the lights were on. A bunch of cowards booing in the dark. :facepalm:

03-20-2012, 04:55 AM
I honestly don't mind Lacob getting booed, though i wish it didn't happen during Mullin's retirement ceremony

He's traded the best player off the team as it would have been much better if we traded Curry to get Bogut; considering how he's always injured yet still has trade value

on top of it he's guaranteed the playoffs which is not happening

with that said, it's unfortunate this happened during Class Act Chris Mullin's # retirement

Monta is beast
03-20-2012, 05:20 AM
Dude Lacob has done more in two years then Cohan did in his entire "career" with the Warriors. Lacob has bough two draft picks, with his money, out of his pocket. He's also made a trade that will make us a much better team next season. People need to give Lacob a ****ing break dude. Get over the fact that Monta is gone, and deal with it.

the owner traded the best player, unless u "true warriors fans" went to the game, u have no say, those fans r the 1s paying the bills & if they want to boo an unproven owner for giving up Monta for an injured player, they have all the right in the world too

Lacob has nothing to do with Mullins past & should have simply stayed out of the ceremony rather then ruining it, how do u think fans will react after the owner shrugs his shoulders like he didnt care bout sending monta away(post popular guy on the team)

Rick Barry needs to take that grandpa preaching **** to some1 that cares, talking down to the audience like if they were his children, idc who u r, u dont bark orders to some1 u aint paying the bills for

If u felt like supporting Lacob, actually buy a ticket to the game or was Mullins retirement not important enough to watch live?

Monta isn't even that good and barry was right. The owner is trying to turn around a organization that hasn't been relevant for near 20 years. It isn't like he blew up a dynasty. He traded a player that hasn't won squat and is super flawed.

GTFO with that ****. I was a season ticket holder for a couple years and when they didn't bring back Baron did I boo the team? Nope. I knew that even though we would suffer that year it was a smart team decision. Signing him to a 5 year deal was not the right move. These fans that booed are not the "real fans". They are some selfish people only thinking about their own entertainment. **** them.

It's a risky deal, but I like it. Monta and Curry were not going to take that team to the promised land. While Bogut is an injury risk, he is a very very good defensive center when healthy. Richard Jefferson is a good fit in the Warriors offense (far better than the Spurs) and should experience a resurgence.

A lot depends upon the health of Curry and Bogut, but big risk brings big rewards. Playing it safe leads to mediocrity.

GSWJunkie
03-20-2012, 03:07 PM
The guy who said that Lacob shouldn't have been a part of the ceremony was right. If he doesn't pick up that mic, the fans don't get the opportunity to boo. It was very brave of Lacob to face the music like that and I respect the cojones he showed by doing it. That being said, he could have chosen another night and it did ruin Mullin's big moment which is a huge disappointment and embarrassment to the reputation of GSW fans. Especially since Mullin is one of the most iconic players to wear the uniform in recent memory and a Hall of Fame inductee. I truly feel sorry for Mullin. He showed his class by backing-up Lacob even though he might even still be mad about Monta being gone. As another poster said, he loves Ellis. That was a great example of Mullin's ability to transcend awkward situations and overcome adversity, which is why we all love him.

This was a culmination of 30 years of rebuilding and I can understand the fans' frustrations. In just about 2 years of ownership, we are not in any better situation today then we were under Cohan and the fans are pissed because what has the new FO really accomplished? Nothing. Yes, the Bogut trade looks to be a very positive move but we won't see the results of that until next season. Couple that with the fact that Lacob just traded away our most popular player, promised a playoff birth (by both owner and head coach) and then punched the fans in the groin by turning around and deciding to tank the rest of the season and what you end up with is the fans thinking that the coach and ownership group are nothing but hypocrites and liars. In other words he basically got what he deserved. I can totally understand why the "Boo birds" came out last night and am really not that surprised it happened.

There were allot of things that triggered this though.

- He gave his son (22), the title of director of basketball operations
- He said he could turn this franchise around, then he says "it might take longer then expected"
- He wants to move the team to San Francisco, which many fans dont want.
- He said he would hire a coach with expirience, but he ended up sign Marc Jackson
- He used the one shot to clear cap space on an expiring contract
- He said he could have gotten Gerald Wallace, but said he wouldn't help the team
- He ir rumored to have said "season ticket holders, aren't real fans"

So it's not that he didn't deserve it, it was just bad timing.

the Warriors FO should have been smarter then this & should have realized the level of displeasure among the fans after trading their favorite player. The owner simply needed to stay out of it, he has nothing to do with Mullin anyways

If anything, Lacob showed class and guts. He was out there honoring one of the only real success stories of the franchise in the last 3 decades. He didn't lose his cool or back off. he stuck to his script in the face of a bunch of booing baffoons.

If anything, the fans should be booing the GS players and coaching staff. They are the ones who suck... not the guy who is paying them millions of dollars to play basketball for a living!!!

After all, how many of us are paying our employees millions of dollars, while THEY fail miserably for years.

Say what you want but living in stl, I always rank GS with some of the best fans. They put other cities to shame when it came to noise and seem like their very loyal.

Monta always got the label as a chucker but people forget that he used to play a bunch of min. Shooting 20 shots in 40+ min is understandable. Shooting 45% as a 6'3 sg is not bad. I feel the fans because putting the future of the franchise on Curry and Bogut 's health would concern me to the fullest.

Talk about "best fans in the NBA" :facepalm:

It's funny how this is getting all the attention but nobody cares about how David Stern was booed when Chris Mullin mentioned him as the "greatest commissioner". It's probably because everyone knows he sucks.

If anything, Lacob showed class and guts. He was out there honoring one of the only real success stories of the franchise in the last 3 decades. He didn't lose his cool or back off. he stuck to his script in the face of a bunch of booing baffoons.

If anything, the fans should be booing the GS players and coaching staff. They are the ones who suck... not the guy who is paying them millions of dollars to play basketball for a living!!!

After all, how many of us are paying our employees millions of dollars, while THEY fail miserably for years.

Show some respect for a man that cares far more about basketball than you or I. He actually puts his money where his mouth is ---- for a living.

He wasn't even there for the Mullin days... I don't really feel like he needed to be out there at center court.

I'm not opposed to what he's doing with the team, I'm just saying it wasn't a smart move on his part to try and talk to a frustrated fanbase. He's making moves that past owners didn't make and that takes guts, but he should be smart enough to know that W's fans are going to question him. It's been the same old story for decades--rebuild after rebuild. I like what Lacob's doing, but as a W's fan, I can also understand the frustration. If you were a W's fan, maybe you'd at least see where they're coming from.

There were allot of things that triggered this though.

- He gave his son (22), the title of director of basketball operations
- He said he could turn this franchise around, then he says "it might take longer then expected"
- He wants to move the team to San Francisco, which many fans dont want.
- He said he would hire a coach with expirience, but he ended up sign Marc Jackson
- He used the one shot to clear cap space on an expiring contract
- He said he could have gotten Gerald Wallace, but said he wouldn't help the team
- He ir rumored to have said "season ticket holders, aren't real fans"

So it's not that he didn't deserve it, it was just bad timing.


Real reasons he was booed:

Warriors have not made the playoffs in 17 of the last 18 years and after playoffs were "promised" this year he just traded away arguably the most popular Warrior and effectively ruined all chances at that once again this season (a move I 100% agree with, by the way).

Also, we were getting smoked in the first half and only put up 35 points with another game of no Steph Curry. Fans were on edge and he gave them the perfect scapegoat to vent. Had Klay Thompson and the team been dominating the boos would have been there, but not as vicious.

But 99% of it was the Monta trade for a guy who won't be playing this season. Fans are fed up and not willing to be patient for something they don't see as a good move (they're wrong). Nothing more or less.

the owner traded the best player, unless u "true warriors fans" went to the game, u have no say, those fans r the 1s paying the bills & if they want to boo an unproven owner for giving up Monta for an injured player, they have all the right in the world too

Lacob has nothing to do with Mullins past & should have simply stayed out of the ceremony rather then ruining it, how do u think fans will react after the owner shrugs his shoulders like he didnt care bout sending monta away(post popular guy on the team)

Rick Barry needs to take that grandpa preaching **** to some1 that cares, talking down to the audience like if they were his children, idc who u r, u dont bark orders to some1 u aint paying the bills for

If u felt like supporting Lacob, actually buy a ticket to the game or was Mullins retirement not important enough to watch live?

u gotta be the dumbest ****in person on this forum... so fans are only people who can afford tickets to games?? "oh if u cant make it out to the live games then ur no true fan"... dude u and Metta World Peace go share a crack pipe together... go pay that bill..

I'd spell out the multitude of reasons why everything you've typed is either hypocritical and/or flat nonsense, but it clearly would fly over your head and everybody else with a head on their shoulders is already laughing at you, so why spell it out.

In other news, I've said it once and I'll say it again. The trading of Monta for Bogut and Udoh for RJ and a 1st round pick (essentially what it amounted to) was the best thing this franchise has done in quite a while. And make no mistake, it was in part in an effort by management to tank this season and attempt to get that top 7 pick in a draft where it will absolutely matter. Much better this than 3+ more seasons of middling non-playoff basketball. They're taking a chance and doing something that should have been done 3 years ago. Good for Lacob (the one guy on the 5-0 unanimous vote to trade Monta who actually had reticence about the deal by the way).

Last night they were awful.


I don't get the Monta Ellis aura. They should be happy they're moving on from that era...not booing the man. He's such a better owner than the last one they had...that was not only a perfect way to ruin a night that shouldn't have been ruined like that, but it was showing how brainwashed they are by an undersized and inefficient scorer who hasn't led them anywhere since he's been there...

Their fans are upset. They lost easily the fan base's favorite player for an injured center (top 5 when he's healthy...they should embrace that). They're caught in the moment. This doesn't make their great fan base suddenly awful, and acting like it does is just stupid. One black eye every decade or so isn't bad for a fan base.

It was just bad timing.

I don't defend the owner. I defend Mullin who was disrespected by the fans because they felt the need to voice their opinion on a night that was an ode to the good years of the franchise as well as a HOF player in Mullin.

It was classles in the manner it happened. But that was the first time Lacob has been in the public eye since the Monta trade. Why do you think they erupted when Mullin was uo there. This had nothing to do with Mullin. The fans are sick and tired of losing, and there starting to show it.

You act like San Francisco and Oakland are so far. It's not the Oakland Warriors we are talking about, its the Golden State Warriors. Moving them to San Francisco has nothing to do with the fans because we still sellout. It is about moving to a larger market. Both San Francisco and Oakland's fanbase share the Warriors.

No, its not LOL. For example, the fan bases in SF/Oakland/SJ, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, NY are already SO LARGE that there is ABSOLUTELY NO THREAT of the team leaving the city. Teams like Hornets, Kings, Memphis are struggling and need to move the team because the owners are losing out on money....

Plus, when is the last time the Kings played a game that mattered (not that the warriors played in many games that mattered too)? I don't understand how that makes sense. Warriors sold out their playoff games which "mattered."

How can you bandwagon a team you're already a fan of? Also, stay on topic. Trying to take a shot at Kings fans doesn't help your cause. Comparing the two fan bases probably isn't the best thing to do right now either considering what happened during Mullins night.

Warrior fans just have a really bad reputation right now around the league and it's just going to be that way for awhile. Accept it.

It's an isolated event. It's not like we do it year in and year out like some cities do. Keep thinking Sac's fanbase is better than the Warriors, I think you are alone in thinking so.

You act like San Francisco and Oakland are so far. It's not the Oakland Warriors we are talking about, its the Golden State Warriors. Moving them to San Francisco has nothing to do with the fans because we still sellout. It is about moving to a larger market. Both San Francisco and Oakland's fanbase share the Warriors. It's not going to be much different.

The Kings are 25th in the NBA in average attendance and the Warriors are 9th. Your franchise was the one that almost got moved far away from Sacramento.

I never said they far and never "acted" like they were. Once you go over that bridge, you're in a different city. San Francisco and Oakland do not have the same type of people which was my point. You can keep debating with me how it wouldn't make a difference but there's no way how either one of us can prove it.

So let me get this straight..."my" franchise ALMOST got relocated whereas "yours" is likely relocating but it doesn't matter because it's just over the bridge. Okay that's fantastic. High five.

Why do you think there was such a struggle to keep the Kings in Sac? Because they weren't making money. If the Kings were making money, why would there be any reason to move them. Like I said the Warriors are always in the top 10 in attendance, TV ratings, and merchandise sells, while the Kings are usually in thr bottom 5 in all.

it's because everyone thinks that the bay area isnt big.

I can keep saying stick to the topic but that's not going to stop idiot Warrior fans to keep bringing back the Kings into the conversation.

You all are obviously trying to recover from that embarrassing night displayed by your very "loyal" fans who sellout every game and buy your valued merchandise. By insulting other fan bases, really doesn't do you any service. In fact, it makes you look just as bad as those fans who booed your owner. It's not like that matters though, you are all clearly supporting each every single fan who booed. Congrats.

I don't see how you don't get the point that we are moving for TOTALLY DIFFERENT reasons. We are not struggling to profit.

San Francisco have some of the same type of people you are referring to. Just go to a 49ers game and you will see the same "type" of people.

So the point of the thread is just to insult the warriors fan base? I don't know what exactly we should be talking about here.

Possible related topics to booing Lacob
1. Should we seek punishment for the fans?
2. Should we figure out the necessary steps on how to prevent booing again?
3. Maybe we should have each member of the PSD warrior section that was at the game booing to be beheaded?


Nothing good can come out of this thread.

Should I make a thread about how the Kings have no fans and just keep posting "KEEP IT ON TOPIC"

I'm sure I can have a lot of fun with that one too.

Of course if you bash our fanbase, especially with points that aren't even valid, we would come defend it.

You're just asking for this thread to be closed by making it into Kings vs Warriors.

The bottom line is that the general consensus around the league is that the booing by those fans was just classless. They ruined what was supposed to be Mullins jersey retirement. Anyone in disagreement is just an absolute idiot. I'm going to just leave it at that.

Nobody came here trying to bash the Warriors fan base until you brought up the Kings. I was just focused on the fans who booed the owner. Then a few of you came in here trying to defend "those fans" which was absolutely ludicrous. Nobody thinks the entire Warriors fan base is classless because I personally know a few good Warrior fans.

You wouldn't get anywhere with that thread. This one at least has a foundation.

There's posts earlier where that Monta dude or whomever was making an argument for the fans who booed. That's just stupid. Whatever their fans frustrations were, they picked a horrible time to boo the owner. It's not even debatable.

I still do believe that our fanbase is better. I have no reason to retract that statement. By bringing up merchandise sales and sellouts doesn't mean anything. If that's the case then your supporting every single fan whom booed since they're the exact same people who buy tickets. Make up your mind, your either proud of those people who sell out Warrior games or you think their classless. Regardless of your opinion, I would still say the Kings fanbase is better.

Yeah, so EVERY single fan in the stadium booed Lacob. The boos were so loud that I thought we were playing the Mavericks in the playoffs again. It's quite simple, a certain number of fans don't make up a fan base and an isolated incident won't all of a sudden make the warriors fans classless. No one is going to change your opinion that the kings have the better fan base, but you might be alone in thinking that.

03-21-2012, 06:02 AM
Have you ever even heard somebody boo? If everyone booed, it still wouldn't be as loud as everyone in the stadium screaming. Regardless, there were a lot of people booing. The owner wasn't even able to get his few words in and probably never would have if Rick Barry hadn't stepped in.

I completely agree but you don't understand that your little "certain number" are the majority of fans whom buy tickets and attend games.

I actually know for a fact that I am not alone thinking that. I've heard people say the Kings have the best fans in the NBA. I posted a video earlier that instantly disproves your statement.

This is crazy, you guys have been brainwashed.

even if warrior fans have grievances and want to pour them out,there is a time and place for that.and it isnt on the night dedicated to one of your legends.you do realize you ruined his night,not just the billionaires?

Yeah, you guys are the Bay Area Warriors. Huge densely populated regions attract alot more fans than us (in Sacramento).

I don't want to debate who is the better fanbase (because that's dumb), but I'm just saying, if we flipped the script and you guys were the Sacramento Warriors. That bolded part would not be the same. You guys have the better attendance because you guys got the Greater Bay Area, and that is a great advantage when it comes down to attendance/ratings/sell-outs.

That's honestly what I've been trying to say, but its not like the Kings never sold out games either. During the Webber era, the Kings consistently sold out. Warriors sell out when we lose, the kings don't. But in the playoffs, but teams sell out.
