Golden State Warriors Employees Jetset To Cleveland, Thanks To Owner


It’s not just a day in the office for Warriors employees.

If you’re a full-time worker at Golden State Warriors, you got to travel in style for Game 3, and it was all paid for by your boss.

Owner of the Warriors Joe Jacob chartered a flight so that his employees can attend the game during NBA Finals, after a frustrating loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers during Game 2. Lacob also reserved 155 hotel rooms in the Cleveland area to accommodate each employee being flown out.

According to SB Nation, the conversations at the check-in counters at the hotels might be more interesting to hear than those at the actual game.

In 2010, The Lacob – Peter Guber group won out over a dozen other bidders (including Oracle chief executive officer Larry Ellison, 24-Hour Fitness founder Mark Mastrov and Texas billionaire financier David Bonderman) for the Warriors and bought the franchise from Chris Cohan for $450 million. Lacob had been a Warriors’ season-ticket-holder for about a decade. Lacob approved the acquisitions of undrafted rookie guard Jeremy Lin back in the day. He now focuses on day-to-day operations at the Warriors.

Whether the Cavs or the Warriors win tonight, at least part of #DubNation got to travel like true jettsetters.
