“Congratulations and thank you to owners Peter Guber and Joe Lacob for bringing the Golden State Warriors home to San Francisco with a state-of-the-art, transit-friendly arena in Mission Bay.

“In this location, the Warriors become a part of our civic and federal commitment led by Mayor Ed Lee and mayors before him to revitalize the Central Waterfront and Bayview Communities, along with transforming the Hunters Point Shipyard, completing the Central Subway and Third Street Light Rail, and restoring Pier 70 as a center of manufacturing, arts and retail.

“Go Warriors!”
