The Warriors became the 3rd most valuable NBA team in Oakland, the Raiders have one of the largest fan bases in the NFL and the A’s had really good attendance until Al Davis ruined the coliseum. The support is there, the owners and poor urban planning have fucked everything up. The fanbases don’t deserve relocation just like the Supersonics fans didn’t, especially to a barren wasteland like Vegas (no offense MJB ? )Honestly, Oakland doesn't really warrant a team... It's now lost the Raiders (again) to Vegas, the Warriors to SF (same market).
Sometimes towns are no longer major sports towns and the city of Oakland has been exceptionally difficult to deal , historically, with for all it's franchises/
53 years in Philly
13 in KC
51 in Oakland
It's probably time for them to relocate anyway
This is kind of funny considering Beltran played here for 8 years
