The upcoming NBA season will be the final season at Oracle Arena. After that, the Golden State Warriors will be moving into the soon-to-be-finished Chase Center in San Francisco.
Which means that, if at all possible, you should get to a Warriors home game this year in Oakland. And if you do, chances are you’ll have the opportunity for an awesome giveaway and/or event. The Warriors just announced their promotional schedule for the 2018-19 season, and, as always, it’s pretty spectacular. Here’s the full list of promotional nights.

I have two takeaways from an action-packed promotional season. First, this is going to be a great year for fans of bobbleheads. And second, it’s great that in the final year of Oracle Arena, the team is paying homage to the memorable We Believe team. I especially love that the Baron Davis bobblehead comes at a game against the Jazz - that’s pretty great.
