WARRIORS WELCOME THE PUBLIC WITH OPEN ARMS TO PRACTICE HOME

          Warriors officials said Wednesday that the City of
     Oakland was "misinformed" when it was told the public would
     not have access to the team's new training facility,
     according to Stacey Wells of the OAKLAND TRIBUNE.  The city
     contributed $1M to the $7M facility, which opened October 9. 
     Warriors Legal Counsel Robin Baggett said that an agreement
     between the team and the city allows Oakland to use
     basketball courts "for conventions," and youth basketball
     clinics "can and will be held at the site."  But Kent Sims,
     Oakland's Deputy Dir of Community & Economic Development,
     said that despite the deal, the city cannot use the training
     center because it "was built without an adequate public
     entrance and exit, public restrooms," or a storage area for
     a temporary floor cover.  Baggett said that a public
     entrance was built and will open in December.  But he said
     the city is responsible for public restrooms and storage for
     the protective floor cover (OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 10/23).
