Report: Warriors meet with SF Mayor Lee about new arena

Warriors owner Joe Lacob has made no secret of his interest in potentially bringing the Warriors to San Francisco, and a report late Thursday suggests he is beginning to get serious about the prospect.

Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Warriors met Wednesday with San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and and Giants CEO Larry Baer to discuss the idea of building a new Warriors arena near AT&T Park. According to the report, Mayor Lee is encouraging the Giants and Warriors to explore the feasibility of building a facility just south of the Giants' ballpark.
The Warriors' lease in Oakland runs through 2017. The team began playing some home games at what is now Oracle Arena since 1966, and began continuous play in Oakland since 1971.

Thompson has made 182 3-pointers this season which ranks him fifth in the league. 

Draymond Green defends Kyrie Irving: Earth 'may be flat'

Draymond Green defends Kyrie Irving: Earth 'may be flat'

Kyrie Irving became a hot topic at All-Star weekend when the Cavs star point guard said he believes planet Earth is flat. No, really, he did

And it looks like Irving may not be alone. Speaking to the media Saturday, Draymond Green made it known he may be a flat-earth truther too. 

"I don't know. I haven't done enough research, but it may be flat," Green said

For those calling Irving's theory of a flat earth crazy, Green is looking at it in a much different way. 

"I wouldn't necessarily say crazy though," he continued with. "It's just his opinion. It's hard to call someone's opinion crazy, that's what he thinks. 

"Who’s to say that picture [from NASA] is telling the truth? I can make a round picture with my iPhone today, on the panoramic camera, and make it look round. So, I don’t know. I’m not saying I think it’s flat or round, I don’t know, but it could be.”

Green didn't say definitively that the earth is flat like Irving did, but he sure wouldn't say it's round.
