    Tickets are probably already expensive for the Warriors so they already changed the dynamic of the crowd that shows up but moving across the bay will make it even worse.
    City of Oakland and the East Bay always had an attachment to the Warriors but they were in SF before.

    During the 2007 NBA Playoffs when they played the Dallas Mavericks I never have seen an NBA crowd as crazy as it was.
    Even in late 1980's when Don Nelson, Chris Mullen, Tim Hardaway and Mitch Richmond that place was a madhouse in the playoffs.

    Sucks that the last game in your stadium ended the way it did -- with your franchise's greatest player missing a last-second shot to lose the NBA Finals.

    Think Curry still would be behind Wilt Chamberlain

    If we're talking all-time, Wilt, yes.

    But if we are talking based on what each man did for their team, Curry did more for the Warriors than Wilt. He never won a ring in San Francisco. In fact, he beat them in the 1967 NBA Finals. I think Wilt is more of a Philadelphia sports legend than a San Francisco one. Curry has more ties to who the franchise is and 3 rings to show for it.

    But thats all debatable. I just see Curry as the better player on terms of what he did for the franchise, especially half of Wilt's time with the Warriors was in Philly.

    Oracle and Candlestick hold special places in my heart though I never was able to go to either one.

    I went to Candlestick in 1990 for a Braves/Giants game. It looked bigger on TV. San Francisco won 7-0, Dale Murphy who was my favorite player struck out 3 times, and Brett Butler was an ass in the parking lot. Haven't been interested in attending an MLB game since, but the stadium was nice.

    Oracle and the Coliseum
    Oracle sits in the parking lot.
    Don't know the end result with all the movement but it would be a shame if the city of Oakland goes from 3 teams to 0.

    The whole sports complex have seen some of the greatest players in the history of sports call it home.
    When the Warriors win they have always played a brand of basketball that represented Oakland and the Bay Area.

    Candlestick was great home field advantage for my 49ers. So many great wins and moments there.

    I remember the first time I went to the Stick thinking "wow my TV at home looks bigger than their Jumbotron." It was always really windy there too. Haven't been to the new place in Santa Clara.

    This is how the arena fades away.
