Joe Lacob Rumors
Making the meal even more special was the fact it included a bottle of 2015 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche — a French wine that can start at around $5,000 a bottle — on Warriors owner Joe Lacob’s tab. Green, who offered to pay for the bottle himself, said he texted Lacob to make sure that was OK and Lacob was “all for it.” “Joe is incredible by the way,” said Green, who posted photos from his dinner with Curry on social media. “That was a very expensive bottle of wine, but Joe let us get that one on the team bill, so we appreciate Joe for that. Not every day that somebody’s approving a bottle of La Tâche. So shoutout to Joe, man. We definitely appreciated that, but it was obviously for a great reason. I think I saw something where Reggie Miller said [Curry is] ‘Mr. Warrior.’ [There] is no better description than that.”
Anthony Slater: Draymond Green took Steph Curry out for a wine celebration last night for becoming the Warriors franchise leader in points. The price tag on the bottle was in the $4k range. Joe Lacob paid for it. Here’s Draymond telling the story.
Wes Goldberg: Joe Lacob: “The truth is that we are committed to winning. We have great resources. It’s been challenging, but we are going to continue to do everything we need to do to stay on top and be the best that we can possibly be, both as a business and on the basketball court.”
Nick Friedell: About a two minute tribute video just played for KD. He looked up a few times from the Nets bench to watch. Bob Myers stood up and clapped along with Warriors owner Joe Lacob. KD pointed over in their direction to acknowledge the moment.
Not selling, a source told The Post, is Joe Lacob of Kleiner Perkins, who currently owns the largest stake in the team at 35 percent. The Warriors has 15 investors total, including Lacob’s co-chairman Peter Guber, a Hollywood executive with a 20 percent stake.
