MORE: Stephen Curry reveals list of top all-time playersThere’s some peril in that. Oracle has earned a place as one of the loudest arenas in the league, a function of the building’s old-school design and (traditionally, at least) its diehard East Bay fans. The NBA is littered with examples of teams moving into shiny new arenas, with a more shirt-and-tie clientele, and finding that it’s difficult to generate the same fan-generated decibel levels as the place they left behind.Warriors coach Steve Kerr played for the Bulls in the mid-90s when the team made the transition from the raucous Chicago Stadium to the tamer United Center.”It feels like every new arena, it’s impossible to capture the same atmosphere, the same intimacy as the older arenas,” Kerr told Sporting News this week. “So there is some of that. But I know also, they’ve built it trying as best as they can to capture the noise. So we’ll see, but it’s going to be spectacular.”I think all of us feel the same way on that which is, on one hand we’re thrilled about the new arena and on the other hand, we’re really sad about leaving Oakland and leaving Oracle.”Kerr himself got wistful earlier Monday afternoon when asked about his favorite memories of Oracle Arena. He harkened back to May 27, 2015, when the Warriors were on the brink of the team’s first NBA Finals in 40 years.”The No. 1 moment was beating Houston in Game 5 of the ’15 playoffs,” Kerr said. “For whatever reason, that memory stands out even more so than winning the title in ’17 at Oracle. I guess just because it was so unexpected. We knew we were going to be pretty good, but I don’t think any of us actually knew that we were going to go to the Finals and win a championship.”Near the end of the clinching game, Kerr was struck by the magnitude of what his team had done and what it meant to the area.”I just remember there was about a minute left and we were up 12 or something,” Kerr said, “so it was kind of apparent that the game was over and just soaking in the emotion from everybody. The crowd, our players, our coaches. I stood at half court and just kind of looked, I scanned the whole building. My goosebumps were everywhere, my hair standing up on the back of my neck — like, wow, this is really happening.”And there was a bigger context to that, too, because I am a basketball fan, and I remember coming in many times as a player and as a broadcaster where, the Warriors aren’t going to the Finals, right? It’s not happening. But it happened.”MORE: Kerr describes importance of Warriors’ game vs. NuggetsCenter Andrew Bogut, brought back by the team last month after spending four years with the Warriors as one of the foundational pieces of the franchise’s resurgence, had a fond Oracle memory from two seasons before Kerr came on as coach, when Mark Jackson was at the helm.The Warriors had improved from 23 wins (in the league’s lockout-shortened 66-game season) to 47 wins and were the No. 6 seed in the West. They would go on to upset the Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs, in six games. It was just the second Warriors series win in the previous 23 years.”I still remember we were at 1-1 at Denver, we came back for Game 3, and our fans were literally there 90 minutes to an hour before the game,” Bogut said. “Our pregame shooting was a sellout pretty much. They were chanting, ‘WAR-RI-ORS!’ and we could hear them from the locker room. It was just an awesome, awesome atmosphere.”The fans at that game made an impression on Nuggets forward Andre Iguodala, who happened to be a free agent that summer and decided he wanted to hitch on to what was happening in Oakland. Iguodala joined the team that summer and became a critical part of the Warriors’ championship runs.Bogut remembers being impressed by the crowd in Oakland as a player in Milwaukee before he was traded to Golden State, when the Warriors were simply not a good team. “The team wasn’t very good, but the fans always showed up,” Bogut said. “That goes back to what I said about the fans deserving this success because that was one arena where they knew basketball and they sell out. They’d be 20-50 with 12 games left and they’d still sell the 12 games out. You just don’t see that in pro sports.”Bogut said the notion of leaving Oracle behind is bittersweet. The positive angle, though, is that the Warriors are leaving Oakland as winners.”You couldn’t be happier for those fans, for what they experienced in a way because the 1990s and 2000s were not too kind as far as wins and losses,” Bogut said. “To have this success before they’re moving, it’s kind of bittersweet for them, I think. But they’ll always be remembered in Golden State basketball.” OAKLAND, Calif. — In just six months, and possibly a third straight championship later, the Warriors will make their debut at the Chase Center, a 10-minute walk through San Francisco’s Mission Bay from the Giants’ home at Oracle Park. The arena sits on a plot of 11 acres, was privately funded, will feature 3.2 acres of public space and sit across from a new public park on the water.But in doing so, the Warriors will leave behind the 53-year-old Oracle Arena, the team’s home since the 1971-72 season and the scene of some of the franchise’s most thrilling highs as well as its long stretches of wretched lows. After Tuesday’s game against Denver, Golden State will play just two more regular-season home games in the building.
