Golden State Warriors president/COO Rick Welts, president of basketball operations/GM Bob Myers, head coach Steve Kerr and guard Stephen Curry addressed the media following Wednesday's announcement that San Francisco will ban all events over 1,000 people, including Warriors games. Later in the day, the NBA announced that the season would be suspended, effective at the end of Wednesday night.
"I just want to at least start this by saying we've had a really productive collaboration with the city of San Francisco," Welts said. "Yesterday I asked to meet with the mayor this morning and we did have that meeting this morning and it was very cordial. It was very constructive."
The Warriors president said that fans not being in attendance for just one game is a 'multi-million dollar loss' to the franchise. Multiple games without fans they'll lose 'tens of millions.'
Despite the huge financial hit, that's not Golden State's biggest concern; it's the the low-income workers that they employ.
"There's no question now that everybody's lives will be effected by this," Kerr said. "No matter what you do, who you are, you're daily life is going to be effected by this."
