Sports Team of the Year: Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors won the 2014 Sports Business Award for Team of the Year, representing perhaps one of the surprise winners of the night competing in the category against league champions such as the Boston Red Sox and Seattle Seahawks. But the Warriors continued a sharp trajectory in 2013 under owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber that produced strong, extensive on- and off-court gains, and a pathway to a new arena in San Francisco.

Long one of the NBA’s most moribund franchises, the Warriors are now widely seen as a progressive thought leader driving best practices around the sport in areas such as social media, ticketing and digital content. “I always thought that under the right ownership and the right plan, the sky was the limit for this franchise,” said Rick Welts, Warriors president and COO.
