It's been more than a year since Joe Lacob bought the Warriors from Chris Cohan. It was mid-July 2010 when Lacob pulled off the upset and beat out Oracle CEO Larry Ellison for the team.Since then Lacob has talked of being bold and making dramatic changes, and to an extent he's done that with the hirings of Jerry West as basketball consultant, Bob Myers as assistant general manager and Mark Jackson as coach.But Lacob did say he was going to take his time with other decisions, most importantly the ones that involved high-ranking employees under previous ownership. Here's a look at which Warriors' employees remain now that Lacob is more than a year in:
