FOR PLAYERS ONLY: WARRIORS BAR PUBLIC FROM PRACTICE FACILITY

          Oakland City Council members "were shocked to learn"
     that the public "will not have access to the Warriors' two-
     week-old training facility," even though the city paid $1M
     of the center's $7M construction costs, according to Stacey
     Wells of the OAKLAND TRIBUNE.  Council members say that they
     thought the city's financial contribution "was in exchange
     for use" of the facility for youth basketball events and "to
     ease overcrowding at the adjacent Oakland Convention
     Center."  But Warriors spokesperson Eric McDowell said,
     "Right now the only accessibility is for the basketball
     staff and training."  Wells: "At this point, it's unclear
     whether the basketball team has broken its promise to the
     city or if officials misinterpreted the pledge" (Stacey
     Wells, OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 10/22).
