The red-hot Golden State Warriors, who are tied with San Antonio in their playoff series, are also facing some tough opposition off the court this week. At issue is the team's plan to build a new $1 billion arena on San Francisco's Embarcadero. The arena has the blessing of Mayor Ed Lee and other city leaders, but some neighbors and environmental groups oppose the project, saying it is inappropriate for the waterfront location. Supporters maintain that the latest design, unveiled on Sunday, preserves Bay vistas and reduces parking.

Host: Dave Iverson

Guests:

  • Art Agnos, former mayor of San Francisco
  • Jennifer Matz, director of waterfront development at the City and County of San Francisco
  • Randy Shandobil, spokesperson for the SF Waterfront Alliance
  • Rick Welts, president and COO of the Golden State Warriors
