Silver might feel that way, but he was also probably speaking on behalf of about 29 of his 30 bosses – the owners of the NBA’s other teams. There’s definitely a belief in Golden State those other owners are upset.
Warriors owner Joe Lacob, via Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area:
“I know there are a lot of other owners and teams that are mad at us, at me,” Lacob said Monday. “I felt that very much when I was in Las Vegas this summer.
“Sorry, we got him. We worked hard until we got him.”
The Warriors are excellent facetious apologizers.
I suspect they’ll be pretty good at basketball, too – which should provide even more opportunities for these fantastic “apologies.”
