FROM GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS CO-OWNER & CEO JOE LACOB:
The following statement was released today by Golden State Warriors Co-Owner & CEO Joe Lacob on behalf of the entire Warriors organization:
“We applaud the firm punishment handed out today by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and appreciate the swiftness with which the NBA conducted its investigation. Similarly, we anticipate that the NBA Board of Governors will act promptly to put this chapter behind us.
As I noted on Sunday, the sentiments expressed on the audio recording were completely inappropriate, unacceptable and senseless. We cannot tolerate such feelings or beliefs, not only in the NBA, but in society in general. There is absolutely no room for racism in our world, period.”
