Will the Warriors Get Sold?

Well, if the CEO of Oracle Corp. has his way, that’s exactly what’ll happen: “At a public event held at Oracle’s Redwood Shores, Calif., headquarters, [Larry] Ellison responded to a plea from an audience member that he buy the Warriors by responding: “I’m trying, I’m trying. Unfortunately, you can’t have a hostile takeover of a basketball team,’ Ellison quipped. As CEO at corporate software giant Oracle, Ellison has pursued a strategy of launching a series of takeovers of various rivals over the years. On Wednesday, Ellison was officially discussing the company’s recent $5.6 billion purchase of Sun Microsystems Inc.”

    As an Oracle employee, I’ve been expecting this for a loooong time. It’ll happen. Larry always gets what he wants.

    That’s fine and for the Bay Area, even better. As long as he doesn’t instill Charles E. Phillips as someone to run the day to day.
    Can’t wait for Bobby Rowell to be fired. Clean house!!!

    If the new ownership hires a new GM and actually builds a better team, I’m all for it. There aren’t any good reasons that GSW has been so bad for so long.

    Is there a rule in place, that limits the number of teams someone can but/own????
