WEST COAST NBA TEAMS DEAL WITH ARENA ISSUES
Published April 18, 1995
CLIPPERS AT THE POND: The Clippers have submitted an application with the NBA Board of Governors to add two games at Anaheim's Arrowhead Pond for '95-96. The team played six games in Orange County this season, and averaged 17,783. In games at their primary home, the L.A. Sports Arena, the team averaged 8,583 per game. The team will also play two preseason games in Anaheim (WASHINGTON POST, 4/15). WARRIORS GO AHEAD WITH IMPACT STUDY: The Warriors will move forward with plans for an environmental impact report at Rincon Hill in San Francisco, a proposed site for their new arena. Warriors Owner Christopher Cohan said the team will also look into "other possibilities," including a site near the current Oakland Coliseum, a Mission Bay site where the MLB Giants hope to build an entertainment center and stadium, and possibly sharing the San Jose Arena, operated by the Sharks (Glenn Dickey, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, 4/15).
