Owner Chris Cohan About Buying Team
STEP FORWARD? In California, Cam Inman writes under the header, "Hooray, Warriors For Sale." News that the team is "indeed for sale should tickle the loyal but frustrated legion of fans who've endured far too many playoff-less seasons under Chris Cohan's ownership." And while "several obstacles likely are ahead until a buyer agrees to Cohan's asking price," this moment "calls for the most optimistic outlook toward a better future" (CONTRA COSTA TIMES, 7/9). In Oakland, Monte Poole writes taking over the franchise from Cohan is "like being handed a map with directions to the good life," as Oracle Arena "should be good for another 20 years." The team also has a "rabid fan base with a history of tolerating defeat but clearly eager to embrace even modest success." The notion of a new owner taking over the team "sends spasms of delight through a devoted and passionate fan base" (OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 7/9).
