Peter Guber Rumors
Sirius XM NBA: “Managing the economic side is a part of it. We’ve taken this team from ground zero, we’ve raised the bar. It’s not an accident that you make winning as part of the culture, spending the money is part of it.” -@Golden State Warriors Co-Owner @Peter Guber
It’s the kind of economic reality that rival teams hope short-circuits this Warriors’ run, the last, great hope that the “Super Villains” core will be broken up. Except for one thing: Their Death Star, this 11-acre entertainment district that will help owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber balance their books with concerts and shows, doesn’t have a fatal flaw. “It’s the absolute foundation for our success for – I would argue – decades to come, because it ensures that we’re going to be competitive financially with any other team in the league,” said Warriors president Rick Welts, who has spent recent years shepherding this project while navigating political minefields and, he estimates, taking part in more than 500 arena-related meetings. “Even under this new collective bargaining agreement, the numbers are getting kind of eye-popping, if they weren’t already, in terms of what it’s going to take financially to field a championship-caliber team. And I think our view is that it ensures this future for as far into the future as we can see.”
After the Warriors celebrated their second NBA championship in three years in Oakland, team owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber boarded one of MGM Resorts’ private jets along with Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala and other Golden State players and flew to Las Vegas.
