Warriors owner Joe Lacob addressed the Monta Ellis-Andrew Bogut trade on Tuesday, defending his position, according to NBA.com reporter Geoff Lepper.
"To me, (the trade) was vindicated from Day 1. The trade was a fantastic trade. We had to get bigger. We had to get tougher. We had to get stronger. We had to do all those things. There’s still things we need to do, but yeah, we’re a better team because of that trade."
The Lepper dropped the bomb:
Lacob: "And we’re going to win an NBA championship here. I guarantee it."— Geoff Lepper (@geofflepper) April 10, 2013
It's been 37 full seasons since the Golden State Warriors captured their lone NBA championship in the 1975 season.
What do you make of the Warriors owner slapping a guarantee on such a bold claim?
