Warriors

Eight years after telling the world that he is gay, Warriors president Rick Welts has tied the knot.

Welts announced Friday that he married Todd Gage in a ceremony at San Francisco City Hall.

San Francisco mayor London Breed officiated the wedding.

According to Welts' post, he and Gage have been together for nine years.

Shortly after the Warriors lost to the Clippers on Friday night in Los Angeles, coach Steve Kerr took time to send a tweet to Welts.

A few months after he came out as gay in a New York Times article, Welts was hired by the Warriors as the president and chief operating officer.

Welts has been an instrumental part of the Warriors' success over the last nine years, helping the team appear in five straight NBA Finals, win three championships and open Chase Center in San Francisco.

By saying the words "I do," Welts registered another big win Friday.
