When I woke up today, I thought all I had to do was write an open thread for the final game of Summer League 2010. Instead, I find out that the Warriors are being sold to Larry Elli... er Joseph Lacob and Peter Guber...?!? Surprise, surprise!

According to Marcus Thompson II, the price of the Warrior went up higher than what Larry Ellison wished to pay for, so Joseph Lacob's group jumped in and outbid Larry Ellison.

How do you feel about this development? Vote please!
